Carnival Luminosa arrived back in Brisbane on 15 October 2023 for her second cruise season Down Under, homeporting in the Queensland capital until April 2024.

Carnival Luminosa arrived in the Sunshine State after an epic 31-day transpacific journey from Seattle, US via stops in Asia, including Japan, Indonesia and the Philippines.

The ship has already embarked on her first cruise of the Australian season, departing on a seven-night Great Barrier Reef sailing on 15 October.

Carnival Luminosa will sail on 31 cruises from Brisbane during the 2023-24 season, which is expected to inject approximately $30 million into the Queensland economy.

An official flag-raising ceremony aboard the ship will celebrate her return to the ‘Funshine’ state on 22 October.

Carnival Cruise Line will raise its new ‘Flag of Fun’ for the first time, designed for Queensland by the people of Queensland in a recent callout.

The flag will fly on board for the remainder of the ship’s Aussie season and features photos submitted by Queenslanders that showcase favourite ways to have fun in the Sunshine State.

Carnival Cruise Line VP Kara Glamore said: “We’re so excited to have Carnival Luminosa back home in Brisbane as we continue to invest in our commitment to the Sunshine State with 31 sailings this season.”

“Our crew can’t wait to welcome Queenslanders back on board for another season of Carnival-style fun.”
