Your Ship: Costa Luminosa

The 92,720-ton, 3,570-passenger cruise ship Costa Luminosa is a twin vessel to Costa Cruises Deliziosa ship. This huge and warm liner with simple design is easy to navigate. Luminosa debuted in 2009, introducing the evolution of retro-style for Costa cruise lines. The line which is based in Italy and is much European-influenced has produced mega-sized cruise vessels as the 114,500-ton Costa Pacifica and Costa Serena (the biggest-ever in the fleet).

Costa Luminosa has a total of 1130 cabins (of which 110 Suites, 662 Balcony, 180 Inside rooms) in 13 grades.

The largest aboard Costa Luminosa is the Grand Suites (455 ft2). There are also 52 Spa Staterooms (with 4 Spa Suites). The most magnificent among Luminosa apartments is the Panorama.

nrThe Kashrut is under the strict supervision of Rabbi Rothenberg of Vienna . He has spent many years developing the community Kosher list in Vienna for hundreds of food products sold in large retail chains throughout the Europe. This knowledge is very important and gives hotel operators in Europe the ability to bring local products and not need to import from Israel or the USA. His Kashrut experience has further expanded into the Kosher Cruises and he the Rav Hamachshir for Eddie’s Kosher Travel/Destinations Cruise packages.

Rabbi Rotenberg works throughout the year to obtain Kosher meat and poultry throughout Europe at the highest kosher level, at the best price. For every shechita Rabbi Rotenberg sends a special overseer on his behalf in order to ensure that the shipment of meat from the start will arrive at the hotel with the utmost supervision.

Rabbi Rottenberg currently serves as part time Rabbi of Savion community in Israel

Further enquiries pls contact Rabbi Nechemia Rottenberg on +972 584038543 / +436889171489 or nr@zehut.org

During the voyage, we have exclusive use of our own synagogue for three daily prayers, a Sefer Torah and intellectually stimulating Torah classes are also provided at regular intervals. We often have a Guest Scholar on board. On Shabbat, we have a permanent arrangement with the Cruise Line to run an automated Shabbat elevator, a solution for locking the door of the rooms, no island music playing in the dining room, candle lighting area and more.
