The former Costa Cruises’ Costa Luminosa was the first Carnival ship to sail from Brisbane when she commenced her first season in November 2022 until April this year.
During Costa Luminosa’s repositioning voyage, she will call at ports in Japan, the Philippines and Indonesia.
Season’s 31 cruises
She will operate 31 cruises during her second season at the Brisbane International Cruise Terminal, visiting Airlie Beach, the Great Barrier Reef, New Caledonia, Vanuatu and Papua New Guinea.
Her first cruise is a seven-night sailing to the Great Barrier Reef on October 15.
‘After a fantastic season in North America, we’re so excited to be welcoming Carnival Luminosa back home to Brisbane,’ VP Kara Glamore said.
‘We know Queenslanders have been eagerly awaiting her return and our crew can’t wait to welcome our Aussie guests back on board to experience all the fun they have come to know and love on a Carnival cruise,’ Glamore said.
