our group... 2 adults and 3 kids (16,16 and 11) costa magica embarkation. Smooth as it can be during spring break. No problems. I was afraid of "the crowds" before we went (ship was fully booked) but was never overwhelmed by too many people being in line or so. Lounge chairs on deck. Yes we "reserved" them too by putting our stuff on them, but if you don't mind sitting on the quieter top decks ...

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. ...

We traveled on the Costa Magica the week of March 18th as part of a mid size group, there were 7 of us in my immediate family in 2 cabins (2 kids - 1 yr old and 4 yrs old). Our Western Caribbean itinerary included San Juan, St Thomas, La Romana (Dominican Republic) and Grand Turk. Embarkation - it took us about 1 ½ hrs to board the ship. Overall, it went as smoothly as boarding 3,000 passengers ...

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 ...

My husband and I cruised on the Costa Magica in Feb. The ship is fairly new and kept real clean. The location of our room was unbelievable, it seemed we NEVER walked anywhere. We were right around the corner from the elevator and mid ship so everything was right there. Upon arriving at the port to start the cruise we arrived about 11:30 and were about 50-75 people back but they opened the doors ...

Review of our Costa Magica cruise 2/4/07 - 2/11/07. We were in cabin 7422 aft corner cabin and our friends were in cabin 7326 you can view these cabins in my picture link. First off the embarkation was long.... Once though security we were put in line for the Suite passengers and thought it would move quickly. It did not! They only had 2 people working the line and someone had decided to do an ...

Talk about being nervous after reading Cruise Critic reviews! I organized this cruise for 135 people, and I didn't want to spend my vacation listening to complaints. I was very pleasantly surprised and relieved with the entire cruise experience!! I have cruised with Celebrity, Princess, Holland America, Royal Caribbean and Viking and I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed my week with Costa. ...

I would have to say that our experience on this relatively new ship was certainly above average. Although the line to board was nearly an hour, the first impression once boarded was simply majestic: a modern ship with plush appointments wherever one stepped made up for the long lines. We had an oceanview room which was more than ample in terms of space and comfort. There was very little noise ...

We booked "back to back cruises" sailing both the Eastern and Western Caribbean. This was our first (and last) time on Costa and our 33rd cruise. Our room (minisuite) was spacious with a large balcony and plenty of storage. However, the beds and pillows were the hardest and most uncomfortable we have ever encountered. Our Room Steward was sympathetic as this is a common complaint and found us an ...
