Sail Date: Apr 2016
Cabin: Balcony Classic

We like very much to dance during our journeys. That`s why we expected to enjoy of much international social dancing with good evergreen dance hits. Instead we had to follow presentations of experienced dancers, who took part in everyday dance lessons. Music was performed by a duo and young dj`s. Most of the music was replays of the music played during the dance lessons including not so familiar dances like paso doble, wienerwaltz, mazurka, merengue, group dances, etc. We waited in vain to dance with the music of such superstars as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Elvis Presley and like. We think that we were not the only ones. Dance lessons belong to dance schools.

In overall we were satisfied with the cruise. Costa Magica was as fine ship we expected. The personnel was friendly. The weather during the cruise was fine and we saw many interesting places. Especially satisfied we were with our cabin steward Mervin who was very friendly and helpful.
