Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Inside

This was a 7 night cuise. The boarding was very slow and disorganized. It is an Italian ship decorated to look Italian but it looks cheap.

Pros: Clean

Cons: Noisy, Not the best food

Recommends Costa Magica? No.

Food and Dining
Food was eatable but not great. Portions were very small. Buffet was crouded and not always open. 5:30 dinner too early. 8:30 diner too late.
No soda card. A CAN of soda is $2.50 plus 15% tip (WOW!)
Very basic enterainment. Not what I would call high class. Every thing was very loud!
Children's Programs
Did not use young childrens program but did use teen program which was very linited (16 and 18 year old did not like)
Ship Quality
The Ship is big not easy to get around in. One of the main resturants in in the middle of the ship so you have to go up or down to get around it.
It is clean (spotless). It is decorated with may murals that appear to be digital prints that were blown up and made to look like water colors. A lot of gold and glitz
Cabin / Stateroom
Small but clean.
Service and Staff
Very nice people
Grand Turk Island
Nice beach and pool (Free)
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

Don't Miss: Sky ride to top of moutain
Casa De Campo, Dominican Republic
Not much there. Dock in midle of no where.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Nice but very limited time
Don't Miss: Fort!
