7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 01, 2007
Ship: Costa Magica

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.

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
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!

Service and Staff

Very nice people

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
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

3 out of 5
