Worst cruise line ever!

Sail Date: March 26, 2011

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

The ship and cabins are fine, but the food is terrible. Very bland with limited choices and small portions. There is even no buffet for dinner. We paid 20 euro per person extra for the "Special" dining room one night and it was just as bad!!! What an insult. This is my 9th cruise, I have taken many different cruise lines- Costa is hands down the worst.

Pros: The bartenders

Cons: The food - just awful!

Recommends Costa Magica? No.

Not a lot of activity choices.
Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
Except for the showers which alternately froze you then scalded you, the cabins were fine.
Service and Staff
The staff at the excursion and "cstomer service" desks were indifferent. The bartenders were great.
Food and Dining
Thereis no excuse for the food.
