We were a bit skeptical of cruising "Italian style" but our expectations were far exceeded. The ship was spotless and the staff worked continuously to make it a great place! All we could say was excellent! The ship was a bit confusing on the first day, but we all felt that was expected on a ship of this size and amount of passengers. The Costa staff did a great job of making this one the best vacation we have had as a family thus far. We traveled with four teenagers and they all agreed that this was an awesome week with nothing left undone. We definitely would recommend this cruise line if you are concerned with cleanliness, friendliness, and beauty! Thank you Costa!

Pros: The Costa Magica was clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful!

Cons: A bit confusing on the first day, but was resolved very quickly.

All six of us decided that Dunns River Falls was a highlight. It is hard to explain, but it is well worth the time and energy. A definite highlight.

Some of us took in Stingray City and the others stayed back to enjoy the shops. A great place for shopping and just hanging around the city. The guys all thought Stingray was great, but it was a bit windy to truly enjoy the snorkeling.

Our teenagers did parasailing at Paradise Beach. They talked about it the rest of the week. A bit spendy -- but well worth the dollars spent on a fantastic ride over the sea. The beach was fun and relaxing, but take your water shoes to really enjoy the water!
