First sailing into the Sunshine State 166 days ago, yesterday Carnival Luminosa said ‘see you soon’ to Queensland as she embarked on her three-week Journeys cruise to Alaska.With over 1,800 guests on board, the incredible voyage is Luminosa’s longest passenger sailing to date since joining the Carnival fleet. Visiting a number of picturesque ports across the 22-day journey, including Noumea, Suva, Tahiti, and Hawaii, guests will still have plenty of time to experience all of the fun Carnival Luminosa has to offer.
After a sensational first season sailing from Brisbane, Luminosa will now spend the US summer cruise season in Alaska. However, Aussie fun-lovers need not worry as Luminosa will return to Queensland shores in October 2023, bringing more Carnival fun in time for our warmer months.
With 28 sailings since November 2022, guests onboard Luminosa were able to achieve some impressive feats, including:
- Over 61,000 guests sailed, including 7,500+ kids
- 52 ports of call visited across Australia and the South Pacific
- Over 100,000 melting chocolate cakes devoured
- More than $50,000 raised for the Children’s Hospital Foundation
- Including a $10,000 donation for the 2022 Nine Telethon
- 110,000+ ice creams and 70,000+ pizzas enjoyed
- 180 live performances attended and 280 Dive-In Movies screened
- 10,000+ people pampered at the Cloud 9 Spa
Queenslanders also celebrated some incredible milestones on board Carnival Luminosa, including a very special 100th birthday, one marriage proposal, and an amazing guest who sailed 15 times for a total of 88 days (over half of Luminosa’s total time in Queensland)!
On Luminosa’s first Queensland season, Carnival Cruise Line VP, Kara Glamore said: “Less than six months after we first set sail from Brisbane, Queenslanders have truly embraced Carnival Luminosa as their own. We’ve made some pretty amazing achievements, but what’s impossible to count are the memories that our guests have created, the fun experiences they’ve had, and the love that our incredible crew has for them.
“Although it’s sad to be saying goodbye, we’ll be bringing some exciting new itineraries to our 2023/2024 season, offering Queenslanders even more Carnival fun.”
