The Costa Luminosa is also back for its tenth consecutive season, sailing from La Romana every Monday, from Dec. 17, 2012 to April 8, 2013.
Both cruises are offered in conjunction with an optional one-week, pre or post-stay at a selection of all-inclusive resorts in La Romana.
For Florida travellers, Transat Holidays is offering a luggage delivery service from the Fort Lauderdale airport to the Port of Miami or Port Everglades. Travellers can claim their luggage at the airport and hand it to an attendant, who will have it delivered to their stateroom on the ship.
Cruise passengers returning to Canada can now check in for their flight at the pier. When disembarking a ship in Port Everglades, the Transat Holidays team will direct travellers to the pier-side counter, where they can check in and deposit their luggage.
