Lower Your Expectations

Sail Date: February 19, 2011

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

A floating diner. This is basically cruising for the lowest common denominator

Pros: Some of the ports

Cons: The food.

Recommends Costa Magica? No.

Ship Quality
The ship needs extra signs to show you where the buffet is and extra staff to guide you becuase of the bizarre layout.
Food and Dining
The food? Please. Dont ask. Just plain poor. Even by lower standards, the food as nearly tasteless. The breads were ok. All meats are pre-frozen and cut paper thin. In fact, almost all items on the menu are pre-frozen.
Service and Staff
Ok, looks like they begin to realize they are on a lower quality ship, and start to act that way.
Cabin / Stateroom
Decent size rooms/
Children's Programs
Good child program. My kiddies liked it.
