Costa Luminosa begins seasonal Miami deployment

By Tom Stieghorst
Costa Cruises said the largest ship it has ever sailed from Miami has begun a series of 10-day winter cruises to the Caribbean.

The 2009-built Costa Luminosa is 92,000 gross tons and carries 2,260 passengers. It replaces the 85,700-ton, 2,112-passenger Costa Mediterranea, which sailed last year from Miami. Sixty-eight percent of the ship’s cabins have balconies, the largest percentage in Costa’s fleet.

The Costa ship joins a crowd of other vessels in the Caribbean this winter, including the MSC Divina, which arrived last month, and the Norwegian Getaway, set to debut in February.

Costa Luminosa will stay in the Caribbean through mid-March.
