Costa Luminosa now sailing from Miami

Costa Luminosa made its maiden call at Miami on the weekend (Dec. 7) as it repositioned to the Caribbean for the winter, offering 10-day roundtrip voyages. Carrying 2,260 guests, Costa Luminosa is the newest and largest Costa ship ever deployed from Miami. The itineraries feature six Caribbean ports, including Nassau or Freeport, Bahamas; Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos or Princess Cays; Ocho Rios, Jamaica; Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands; Roatan, Honduras, and Cozumel, Mexico. Costa Luminosa’s last roundtrip cruise from Miami for the season will depart March 17, 2014, and call at Belize City, Belize, instead of Roatan. Fares for the 10-day cruises start at $599 p.p., double occupancy. Guests wanting to ring in the New Year can depart Dec. 27 from $699 p.p., double occupancy. (
