This Monday evening the 2nd of April as we welcome the start of Semana Santa (Easter week) why not start the celebrations in style – with a visit aboard the Costa Luminosa Cruise ship?
For just US$60 per person a visit aboard the Costa Luminosa cruise ship offers Casa de Campo villa owners, residents and hotel guests the opportunity to explore this majestic architectural creation and it’s shops, bars, casino and games area, as well as a 4 course meal with wine included! That’s not a bad deal!
Once on board and registered with a “Costa Card” (allows you to make purchases) guests are pretty much free to explore and enjoy as they please – which is exactly what we reccomend you do, but don’t miss these must-see / must-do options:
• Dinner at the “Costa Luminosa” restaurant
This is where you will be served your 4-course dinner and wine. It serves a great selection of Italian cuisine, but we especially recommend the “Mushroom lasagne with black truffles and soya milk” it’s delicious!

• The Casino!
Whether you’re a “gamer” or not, everyone seems to love the “La Vega” casino – being aboard the ship gives you a feeling of freedom, like you’ve escaped and been transported somewhere totally different and who can resist the wink from Lady Luck!
• The Pool Party and the Starlight Dancers!
Located on deck #10, just a short stumble away from the “Costa Luminosa” restaurant, the pool party under the stars buzzes with several hundred tourists all dancing, drinking and having a great time – this was one of the favorite parts of our most recent visit.
The approximate schedule of pool party activities is:
9:30PM: “Let’s Dance” with the music of Duo Calypso
10:30PM: Line Dancing with the entertainment team and the music of Jack’s Band
11:15PM: Ice Sculpting demonstration
Then the party continues with the entertainment of the Starlight dancers(do not miss this!!)
