Carnival Luminosa Sails 31-Night Transpacific Cruise

Carnival Luminosa set sail on her Carnival Journeys 31-night transpacific cruise from Australia to Seattle on Monday, April 1, 2024. She is sailing from Brisbane to Seattle with ports of call in Asia, the Far East and Alaska. 

After seven days at sea, Carnival Luminosa will call on Guam in the Mariana Islands on April 8. Three days later, she will traverse Japan for several days beginning April 11 and call on Naha, Hiroshima City, Yokohama, Aomori City, and Sapporo-Otaru. 

Carnival Luminosa will spend the next seven days at sea as she crosses the Pacific Ocean and the International Date Line on her way to Alaska. Her itinerary takes cruisers to Seward, scenic cruising at the Hubbard Glacier, Juneau, and Ketchikan. The 2009-built vessel is then scheduled to arrive in Seattle on May 1, 2024. Carnival Luminosa will kick off her summer season in Alaska and Canada on the same day. 

The summer season will be seven-day itineraries that include ports of call to Skagway, Juneau, Ketchkan and Victoria. Every voyage will sail roundtrip from Seattle and feature scenic cruising at the Tracy Arm Fjord. The season ends in late September when Carnival Luminosa returns to Australia for her third winter Down Under.

Carnival Luminosa, originally built for Costa Cruises, entered service in 2009, and was transferred to Carnival Cruise Line in October 2022. She went through a significant renovation to revitalize the ship and add Carnival venues like The Punchliner Comedy Club, Limelight Lounge, Piano Bar 88, Serenity Retreat, and more. While becoming a Carnival ship, she received the cruise line’s livery colors but retained her Italian elegance. 

While in Alaska, Carnival Luminosa will be joined by Carnival Spirit and Carnival Miracle. Carnival Spirit will offer week-long itineraries from Seattle, while Carnival Miracle will offer ten-night itineraries from Carnival’s private cruise terminal in Long Beach, California.
