Imagine dining at a five star restaurant at sea. This is what you will experience when you book a cruise on the Costa Luminosa, the newest cruise ship of Costa Cruise Lines. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in the Taurus Restaurant that is two decks high and lined with an expanse of glass overlooking the ocean scenery. Since this ship cruises to the Baltic and the Mediterranean, the dinner sittings are much later than you will find on cruise ships based in the United States. The meals are extravagant with many choices of dishes, including those for people who are counting their calories while enjoying a cruise.

If you want something more casual, then the Andromeda Restaurant on Deck 9 is the place where you can grab a quick bite to eat. This restaurant specializes in buffet and features cuisine from all parts of the world. You can have Oriental cuisine, your favourite fast foods, a choice of salads and sandwiches, pasta and pizza on any day of the week. The menus change for the three meals of the day. Just take a walk around before you make your choices to see the variety of dishes available at the stations that are set up around the room.





For those passengers who book the Samsura Spa Cruise and stay in one of the cabins dedicated to this class, dining at the Samsura Restaurant offers a healthy fare in keeping with the wellness aspect of the Costa Luminosa. Taking your meals at this restaurant is part of the spa package and although it is available to the rest of the passengers, they have to pay for the meals they take in this venue.


A la carte dining is available at Club Luminosa. This is the alternative restaurant on the Costa Luminosa where you do have to pay for your meal as it is not part of the fare you pay for the cruise. However, there is no set fee for dining in this location. Rather you choose the dishes you wish from the menu and pay according to the foods you choose – very similar to that of a restaurant on land.

Whichever venue you choose for your dining needs on this ship, your taste buds will thank you in the food prepared to perfection, just the way you like it.
