barebones cruise

Sail Date: July 01, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

Skip Costa entirely. Below average experience due to the rudeness of the crew. Got very, very tired of being pushed out of the way by the crew, being ignored etc... A very tired crew. Pick a Carnival Cruise instead, it the same ship but the crew will make all the difference

Pros: good itinerary of Norway

Cons: everything else

Recommends Costa Magica? No.

Ship Quality
Complicated layout of the ship. The main dinning areas block multiple decks mid-ship.
Service and Staff
Rude, rude & rude. A very tired crew.
Food and Dining
Average menu (or more specifically the same single menu across the entire ship), lack of variety, average quality, below average service.
Below average for a carnival corp ship.
Children's Programs
Rude, rude & ruder. 1 hour was enough for both our children.
Cabin / Stateroom
Typical carnival corp. ship with cosmetic changes to personalize it for Costa
