My husband and I sailed, along with friends, the Costa Magica transatlantic May 4-20, Ft. Lauderdale-Copenhagen. Before I start the review, I want to make clear that we definitely got our dollars worth since this was an extremely inexpensive cruise, including airfare at $1400 pp. We embarked in Ft. Lauderdale. We have been through that port several times, as usual the embarkation was a breeze and ...

My husband and I flew from New Orleans.We stayed for 1 night at the Comfort Inn Air/Cruise Ports and we were very happy with the free shuttle service.  We were impressed with Costa's quick and easy check in service and went right up to the buffet for lunch.  The buffet was satisfactory,but limited in choices.  We had plenty of time to explore the ship before sailing and I must say it is a ...

Couldn't wait to try the Costa Cruise line. This cruise was our 5th. Positives: Ship was very clean and Grand Suite was spacious. Both our Butler, Emil and room stewardess El were great, friendly and very accommodating. Costa took pristine care of their ship the Magica. Major problems: Luggage handling was atrocious. We were on the 7th floor and for 4 hours could not use the stairs or the ...

So after reading all the bad reviews I tried to keep an open mind about my vacation. My aunt had been an a Costa cruise before (not Magica) and said it was fabulous. Since it was Easter and my entire family was going (mom, dad, sisters who are 18 and 20), grandmother, aunt and my boyfriend (we are both 24), I decided to go. Embarkation: When we all arrived, I thought it was going to be a breeze ...

After having traveled with Costa in 2003 (Costa Victoria) my kids (then 13 and 11 years old, wanted Costa again. So we did it again, this time Costa Magica. No magic here. embarkation was very smooth and fast, the keys or embarkation card is now given at the cabin, no original picture is taken, as is done in other ship, security is quite lacking. Upon entering the ship, the atrium is impressive. ...

Just back today from our Magica cruise. Overall it was close to being perfect. This is the only cruise I have been on with only one day at sea. The rest of the time we were pulling into a port. Grand Cayman Island was my favorite and Cozumel was my least favorite. The Magica is a big and beautiful ship that had "kids sail free" for this cruise. So needless to say there were a lot of children ...

This is my review for the April 15th cruise on Costa to Bermuda. Embarkation went smoothly, because they now take an imprint of your credit card when you first check in. After we ate at the buffet we went to our room and we were happy to see our luggage there, We had good luck getting a good room steward, who brought us the mattress toppers, extra towels and blankets. The trouble began with an ...

This was our 28th cruise. We usually cruise with Celebrity, Princess and Royal Caribbean. The best parts of the cruise that went really smoothly were embarkation and debarkation! I wish it was like that on all cruises. Although it seems that in Ft Lauderdale they have things better organized. On this cruise we wound up getting bowls of soft ice cream every night, going back to our cabin and ...

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. ...
