Europeans are heavy smokers. If you pay extra for a balcony, please know that attempting to enjoy breakfast with a view unfortunately comes with a side order of cigarette smoke. by melissahsimpson

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Costa Magica / Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean

Our servers were excellent. From Jerome the butler to Ronna our room assistant to our entire wait staff. From the bars to restaurant, they were great. The excursions were good but I would not consider a bargain, fairly expensive. We hired a private driver for the last port who not only drove us to Pisa roundtrip but took us on an extra 2 hr private sceneic tour to Cinque Terre, stopping for pictures and a roadside snack. It was less than a similiar Costa Excursion and exceeded our expectations . Overall the cruise was fun however it is doubtful I will venture again with Costa. $3000 for a balcony that we could hardly use due to the fellow guest who smoked on their balconies. And a negative experience where the customer service desk quoted us incorrect information about location and time available to pick up passports upon disembarking which caused avoidable stress.

Not a very good choice for English language users by bartlego

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Costa Magica / Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean

I loved the itinerary and the excursion we took. But the atmosphere on the ship was at times not very pleasant, with people rushing, not paying attention, also, not enough English information.

St Petersburg was too rigid and formulaic, our private tour left a lot to be desired

Lido is the only place on the ship that you can get breakfast that is similar to what we eat for breakfast in the US.

Be prepared to be lost since the 3rd and 4th floors don't go all the way from front to back. You need to use the 5th floor to go aft for dinner on the 3rd floor. Don't plan on a dinner buffet, there isn't one but we really like dining in the main dining room and being waited on. With a new city everyday you do get tired so bring your walking shoes!
