Costa Luminosa
         

Overview: While various nationalities are carried, most passengers are Italian, so the ship is lively but quite noisy, with lots of children running around, particularly during school holidays. The interior decor, which includes marble, wood and mother of pearl, pays tribute to l...

      Thank you for your positive reply. Just uploaded August 16, 2010. Another few days to go to finalize the wole blog. It's really a huge load of pictures, but worth while, I guess. Keep on looking in the blog form time to time, till it's finalized. Regards,.

      Hi, Donelly, Costa's policy is (in Europe) EUR 6.-/person/day (on cruises over 8 days) as service-surcharge that will be added to your account every day you spent aboard/in your cabin. If you are very satisfied with your cabin steward, and/or the waiter at your (every evening) table (which you are dedicated to all cruise the same table), resp. the waiter's assistant, then of course you CAN provide them with some tips at the end of the cruise. It's voluntary though. You won't be "advised" at the end of the cruise how much money to put in an envelope ready prepared waiting on your pillow 3 nights before disembarkation (as it is on other cruiselines - depending on the poilcy). They depend sometimes more on a good rating with mentoining the name/in person in the form you are requested to fill-in at the end of the curise, how satisfied you were with food/presentation/service/cabin, etc. That might lead to either one day off or even a promotion/higher grade work. Hope that could answer your question a little at least. Please let me know, if you need any more info. Thank you.
