CostaMagica to Bermuda and Nassau 4/21/06 This was our 16th cruise. This was our Costa cruise. We decided on this cruise because of its itinerary to Bermuda and the price.
Embarkation: We arrived at the airport the day of the cruise and took a taxi to the pier. We arrived at appx 12:30. It seemed crowded but the lines moved quickly. The reason the lines were going so fast was there was no credit card registration, no room keys given and no security photos taken. Our room was ready upon boarding. There was a blank key in the door slot. Displayed on the bed were the room keys, along with a variety of paperwork, shore excursions, welcome information and the Costa Today, a daily paper reviewing all ship activities and meal schedules.
The Ship: The ship is beautiful, extremely clean and well maintained. Costa does a fine job in this area. It was a little difficult to navigate around the ship. Getting from one the front of the ship to the back required going up or down a few decks to cross an area then back up or down again.
