Ship: Costa Magica
Sailing Date: April 2nd, 2006
Itinerary: Eastern Caribbean
I absolutely loved the Magica. This is one of the
best vacations we have ever had.
Service: Spectacular. Our cabin steward was incredibly attentive. Everyone on the ship was commenting about the incredible service. The crew, is mostly Phillipino.
The shows: First class. They were all really fun and our cruise director, Max, was extraordinary. He had a great personality and made everyone on the ship feel like a family.
Dinners: Again, the wait staff was first class. The food was good. There were two formal nights, one Italian night, a Roman Toga party, Tropical night, etc.
Cleanliness: the ship was constantly being cleaned...decks scrubbed, carpets steamed, etc. I was very impressed.
Staff overall - the cruise has a lot of Europeans on it, which makes it really interesting and adds another dimension. The elevator floors are called out in Italian, followed by English.
The staff is highly energetic and there are always surprises during dinners or other occasions. We went with our daughters, ages 11 an 14 and they really enjoyed it and met many other peers.
I would highly recommend a Costa Cruise. We got a good deal on the cruise...all four of us went for $2,047...truly a value for a new, classy ship.
