6 Night Special Western Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 17, 2006
Ship: Costa Magica
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (young children)

The ship was nicely decorated. It was quite beautiful and very updated. It was nice that the ship was fairly new - only 2 years old.

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
The dining times weere fine. The quality of the food was well below average. It was very apparent when it came to the dining room entrees.

The daily "Today" was not as complete as the activities that were going on.

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
There needed to be more variety for the programming and the hours needed to be a little bit longer. It was too broken up (9-12, 3-6, and 9-11:30). My kids would get antsy and want to go during the day when we were on the ship and there were no programs available.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
At times there was a definite language barrier.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Extremely clean. It was very easy to get around.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
This was the first time we had a balcony and it was great. The room was a decent size for a cruise cabin. It was nicely decorated.

We shopped and then went to the beach. It was a great way to spend the day.

We didn't like this port. It is not a pretty place - quite dirty. We did go visit the rainforest which was nice and to see the Howler monkeys.
Don't Miss: Seeing the Howler Monkeys

We didn't spend near enough time here! The beach was great as well as the clear waters!
Don't Miss: The beach

Pros: I enjoyed the ship the best

Cons: The food leaves a bit to be desired

Recommends Costa Magica? Yes!
