Costa to the res­cue

Cruise Weekly - - Front Page -

PAS­SEN­GERS aboard Costa Cruises’ Costa Lu­mi­nosa had some­what of an ad­ven­ture in the Aegean Sea last week, af­ter the ship was di­verted to help the crew of a fish freighter which caught on fire.

The Kilic 1 was in dis­tress, with heavy seas and dense smoke when Lu­mi­nosa came to the res­cue in the dead of night, with a ship’s ten­der tak­ing 11 crew from the stricken ves­sel.

All were trans­ferred to an­other cargo ves­sel, with Costa Lu­mi­nosa then re­sum­ing its week-long itin­er­ary vis­it­ing ports in Greece, Croa­tia and Mon­tene­gro.
