Cabin:

My wife and on went on the Western Mediterranean cruise aboard Costa Magica in March this year (see previous review). We spotted a bargain priced 10 day cruise on Magica around Northern Europe and decided to take the plunge.

This was probably our last Costa cruise. The ship called at Dover so we were expecting a few more brits this time, but there were apparently only about 80 aboard so in a distinct minority. This cruise appeared even more geared up to the Italians. Announcements were made in 6 european languages with English following up the rear and sometimes not at all.

As before, the Italians were loud, rude and pushy so be warned! We were on Deck 6 Caravaggio which is a bad place to be. If you have a cabin in the central block above the Salento Grand Bar change it. We were in 6297 and directly above the stage so we could hear Bingo calling and the loud thud of eurobeat music until 1.30 each morning. There was also a continual loud vibration. You won't get an early night in any of these rooms.

Cabin Review

Cabin I3

Cabin is very noisy. There is a continuous vibration from some machinery. It is also directly above the Grand Bar stage where most of the noisy events take take place until 1.30 in the morning. Definately one to avoid.
