There's very little new to say about the Costa Luminosa. She's been a common visitor in Helsinki during this summer. The photographs below show her departing from Helsinki west harbour on 23 June 2011. Photographed from Sisä-Hattu. Click on the individual images to see larger size.

Costa Luminosa at quay, with Superstar passing her. A slight difference in size, don't you agree?
Pulling away from the cruise quay at Hernesaari.
Windy days attract sailboats. Sadly, the barges used for deepening the sealane are less photogenic.
Elegant profile... though the aft superstructure is perfance a bit too built-in.
And then onwards to the open sea.
