Review SummaryWe have sailed many times and the embarcation to the Costa Magica was the worst!! Wait in lines, wait in lines, wait in lines and basicily do nothing! Everything could have been done with more people checking you in and doing everything at one time. The cruise was very nice and the food service was fair. The entertainment was the best we have ever seen anywhere ( 5 Stars) Our room staff was just great but the waiter at dinner and the wait staff else where needs lessons in nice. The ports were very interesting and we had a good time on our own. Didn't try the excursions. Then we had to pick-up our passports on the morning of our disembarcation, oh what a mess! We waited over 2 hours in line ( and we were at the front of the line) to get passports no excuse for this irriatation.

Be prepared to be lost since the 3rd and 4th floors don't go all the way from front to back. You need to use the 5th floor to go aft for dinner on the 3rd floor. Don't plan on a dinner buffet, there isn't one but we really like dining in the main dining room and being waited on. With a new city everyday you do get tired so bring your walking shoes!
