Hello!

We will be embarking on our 3rd cruise on January 28th, this time on the Costa Magica.
Last year, we were on the Costa Mediterranea, hopefully we will have a better experiencethis time around!

Fort Lauderdale 01/28
At Sea 01/29
Cozumel 01/30
Grand Cayman 01/31
Ocho Rios 02/01
Grand Turk 02/02
At Sea 02/03
Ft. Lauderdale 02/04

Three questions
- Which days will be the formal nights?
- Where can I find good instructions on the web to learn how to tie a toga properly?
- Any good excursions to suggest?

Thank you!

We just returned from the Magica, not your itinerary. The Magica is a great ship, don't know why you didn't like the Mediterranea, but we had a wonderful cruise. Our formal nights were the first at sea night and the night Catalina Isle. Toga night was the last night. They give you instructions on how to tie a toga on board. Your formal nights will probably be your at sea night and the night of Grand Turk. Cozumel-Tulhum or Xel-ha, Grand Cayman-Stingray City or Seven Mile Beach, Ocho Rios-Dunns River Falls, Grand Turk-Ultimate Snorkeling. Do hope you enjoy this cruise, we loved the Magica! Best wishes!

We just finished a Christmas cruise aboard the Magica. It's a big, beautiful ship, but be careful - my brother and sister in law got the Norwalk virus and missed 4 of the 7 days just laying in their cabin. I didn't see a lot of sanitary precautions we have seen on other ships (12+time cruisers), so make sure to wash your hands a lot, use your cabin's bathroom instead of public restrooms and see the doctor if you get sick - he can give you a shot to stop the nausea and alleviate a lot of the suffering. But to answer your questions, we had 2 formal nights, one on the first day at sea and the second on the 6th day of the cruise. The 7th day is for the toga night, which is a lot of fun. Max, the cruise director will show you how to tie a toga during his televised debarkation talk, and you will also get directions with your toga.

As far as excursions go, we've done Western Caribb a bunch..Grand Cayman has outstanding snorkeling - stay away from Stingray City if the idea of being surrounded by hundreds of stingrays scares you - we don't do cruise excursions if we can help it - they are way overpriced and as you get off the ship there are plenty of opportunities to find freelancers that can get you to the same beaches and 1/2 the cost. Cozumel has a lot of shopping, if you like that sort of thing.Have fun!

Looking forward to cruising on Jan. 28 on Magica. 11 months ago cruised on Fortuna and had a blast. Small annoyance re languages but hey, this is a free world. Is anyone planning a frequent cruiser get together?
