This was our 31st cruise and 1st on Costa. We specifically took it because it's the only cruise out of South Florida to Bermuda. Embarkation was fine. Cabin was outside on deck 2 in farthest rear of ship. Cabin spacious but mattresses hard - we had to ask for foam topper and got it 1st night. Vibration in that area was also very bad but we got used to it - felt like sleeping in a vibrator bed. Ship was very clean and room steward and waiters very accommodating. Food was mediocre at best. Can honestly say that we did not have one really good meal the entire week. Quality of meats was poor - beef and veal mainly being of very poor quality. Entertainment also very mediocre - mostly review type - no comedians, magicians, jugglers, etc. Most announcements made in Italian, German and English which got annoying after awhile. We did not take any excursions - did our own in both Bermuda and Nassau. Bermuda was beautiful and made the trip worthwhile as was the weather and seas. As for the Magica and other Costa cruises from talking with others on the ship, I would not recommend them. There are too many other good lines to go with at comparable prices. Read Less

Having cruised on 43 previous cruises these are my impressions of the Magica. Carnival Conquest ship. Poor embarkation requiring passengers to wait in another long line to register credit cards. Ship felt crowded with lines and clogged hallways. Gaming tables often full, which is inconvenient for passengers and lost revenue for ship. Have been on other sister ships (Liberty, Glory, and Valor) did not have same problem. Open seating lunch we waited 40 minutes for our first course. Found lunches to be better at upstairs buffet. Dinner service was good but food quality was poor to average with soups being the highlight of dinner. I find it hard to comprehend how this ship's dining cuisine is accepted in Europe. Experienced excellent service in the wine bar with Piano and Violin entertainment. Gym has great workout machines and never had a problem waiting. We were only in Bermuda 24 hours, since this is the reason most passengers book this cruise I would suggest a longer stay in Hamilton and a shorter or elimination of Nassau. Debarkation offered no early walk off for passengers who carry own luggage. We did not leave parking lot until 11:00 am. We probably would only cruise Costa again if price was low and itinerary outstanding. Read Less
