Earlier this month I was lucky enough to have the chance to step aboard Costa Luminosa during her transit call at Harwich International Port. I was joined on board by our Cruise Ambassador, Jordan, who up until this point had never stepped aboard a Costa Cruises ship.
The visit was made possible thanks to the Captain of another Costa Cruises ship, who I am in contact with via Facebook. He was able to get in touch with his colleagues aboard Costa Luminosa and ask if Jordan and I could visit. The Captain of Costa Luminosa was more than happy to have us visit.
Upon boarding the ship we were taken to meet the Captain in his cabin and then enjoyed a drink with him, after presenting my drawing in the theatre. Jordan and I were both presented with a model of the ship too! The Captain was very impressed with the drawing and was keen to ask plenty of questions about how I drew it. He informed me that he already had an idea where he might display it.
After spending well over an hour with the Captain, he went back to his duties and let us tour the ship ourselves. Jordan and I explored most of the passenger amenities on board Costa Luminosa and both of us were very impressed with the ship. We even enjoyed lunch on board before disembarking. We are both very much looking forward to our first cruise with Costa Cruises in the near future, probably!
