  3. Costa Luminosa
Our fifth Costa cruise and second time on Luminosa. This was probably the best so far. Impossible to fault at the price (7 days for £600 each incl lunch and dinner drinks package). Food was excellent, staff courteous, friendly and helpful without exception. Entertainment thoughout the ship was great, all musicians being excellent and great dance teachers. Shows were fantastic, especially the acrobatic act. Only exception being the ventriloquist. The ship was spotless throughout though we would have liked to have seen more use of the hand gel dispensers. Costa are a bit lax on enforcing the use and there are none on entering the restaurant. Most were not using them in the buffet so everybody was handling the tongs and then going straight to their food. Best way to spread germs. Fellow passengers seemed more polite and friendly than on some previous Costa cruises. All in all top marks though it does still irk to pay for water at the dining table. We had a drinks package thrown in so didn't affect us. It would be good too if some free food was available late evening but guess the price is low. Also noticed Costa have dropped the evening cabin service. Again not really an issue to us at this price level. We don't do excursions so can't comment but tenders etc seemed well organised.
