Ship Facts: Costa Magica Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Costa Magica Deck Plans
CostaMagica - Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation was smooth due to having Priority status by being in a Suite. The Suite was great. Roomy, great service, lots of closets and the bathroom even had a jacuzzi tub. Personnel on the ship were very nice and extremely helpful.

The food left much to be desired. The variety was lacking and the quality of some items was very poor to not edible. The Club Vicenza was not good at all. Service was outstanding, music for dancing was great, but the T-bone steaks were covered with tenderizer, could not be cut due to grissle, and basically were not edible. Breads were hard and dry. Deserts lacked moistness and variety was not good. Many items were oversalted in the kitchen.

Entertainment was only self-contained. No comedians or musicians were brought in to entertain. Second seating shows were before dinner, really interfered with "get ready" time.

There were an abundance of kids on board (12-18 years old) who were unsupervised and allowed to make passengers life miserable. Most of the passengers were foreign, with only a few Americans on board. Smoking was very prevalent among the European passengers and it was allowed to interfere with No Smoking areas. Deck chairs were placed against each other and body odor wafting over the deck was rampant.

Ports of call included San Juan, PR; St Thomas, USVI; La Ramona, Dominican Republic and Grand Turm, Turks and Caicos. The ports were nice except for La Ramona, which caused many passengers to return to the ship early due to extreme poverty and being besieged by beggars and vendors.

We spent much time in our room as most of the passengers did not desire to speak English and/or associate with the few Americans on board.
