  3. Costa Luminosa
This is my third cruise with Costa and I loved it. Now I am a Perla level Costa Club member. We choose this cruise because of the itinerary: Venice, Bari, Argostoli, Santorini, Mykonos and Katakolon/Olympia. We had mini suite 4303 with a corner balcony with a 270 degrees view (windy by the way). The embarkation in Venice was quick and efficient and the departure from Venice is just stunning. Our mini suite was spacious with a very nice bathroom and a shower with glass door and panel, not a curtain. Cabin steward Aileen was very nice. Now let me talk about the food, it was just splendid. Other cruise lines charge you to eat Italian in a speciality restaurant. In Costa, you have all the Italian food you want included in your cruise price and we also had the"brindiamo" drink package included. So we drank many Proseccos, beers and wine by the glass in addition to juices and coffees (Illy Italian brand which is wonderful). The lunch buffet was amazing with a lot of stuff to choose from. Dinners are a wonderful trip around all the regions of Italy (Campania, Liguria, Sicilia, Lazio, etc.). They were truly gourmet dinners.

Great Greek Islands cruise

Cabin Review

Mini Suite with Balcony
Cabin MS 4303
Spacious and comfortable with a very nice balcony. Bathroom was very nice and it had amenities like douche gel, shampoo and body cream. Good hairdryer.
There is 110 volts plug in addition to the 220 plugs in the cabin.
Cabin has a mini bar not included in the "brindiamo" drinks package.
