MS Costa Luminosa, together with Concordia-class Costa Pacifica, made history together when they were christened together in Genoa on June 5, 2009. It was the first time two ships were simultaneously christened and set a Guinness World record in the category, “Most ships inaugurated in one day by one company”.
Costa Luminosa’s design was landmark at that time, what they called a hybrid, taking the best elements of Spirit-class and Vista-class cruise ships. Sister ship, Costa Deliziosa, was launched in February 2010 and is based on the same design. Both Costa Luminosa and Costa Deliziosa are unique within the Costa fleet as they are slightly smaller, built to Panamax specifications, which allows them more flexibility with itineraries.
Costa Luminosa is the thirteenth ship of Costa Crociere, part of their five-ship expansion program, which included Costa Pacifica, Costa Deliziosa, Costa Favolosa and Costa Fascinosa.
The majority of Costa Luminosa’s passengers are from Europe, particularly Italy, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Spain. Costa says 20 percent, typically, are English-speaking.
