7 Night Western Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 25, 2007
Ship: Costa Magica
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
The ship was clean, the staff was friendly & attentive to detail. We had a customer service issue created by the booking agent that wasn't even Costa's fault, but it was handled quickly & efficiently!

Everything looked the same after half a block. Too many street-hawkers. But, at least, they were mostly fun.

Again, a sanitized, commercialized, invented version of the Carribean experience-- but after Jamaica, maybe that was a good thing! The beach chairs were clean & new. The under- water surface was very rocky. Ship access right at the pier was very good.

The stores were high-end, but felt more like the "Disney" version of the island-- newly contructed to look like the island, but lost the native flavor. Tried & failed to actually find native craft/art. Too commercialized, too bland.

The natives were restless & had really bad attitudes.

Pros: Friendliness, attentiveness of the staff. Overall value of the cruise.

Cons: Too many strollers to step over!
