Costa Magica pays homage to some of Italy’s
most fascinating destinations. From Positano to Portofino and Capri
to Grado as well as Bellagio, Sicily and Vicenza, each of the ship’s
public rooms and restaurants, takes guests on a magical voyage to
some of the most beautiful locales in Italy.
More than 60% of Costa Magica's accommodations
have an ocean view, and 60% of those also feature a private veranda.
Costa Magica is basically a slightly smaller Euro-clone of parent
company Carnival Cruise Lines' Conquest-class vessels; however, the
size and mix of public rooms is slightly different. In
the style favored by Europeans, the casino was made smaller to add
room for the Salento Grand Bar that houses a suitably large
Classico l'Aquila is the idea spot to enjoy
cigars and brandy in front of a faux brick fireplace.
Magica passengers enjoy a Roman Bacchanal complete with a parade
and toga party.
While the Tuscan steakhouse style cuisine
in Club Vicenza, the upscale
specialty restaurant, is served on Versace china, the surroundings
are somewhat clubby, yet uninspired
Festa Italiana, Costa Magica guests are invited to an Italian
street festival at sea featuring Bocce Ball contests, Tarantella
dance lessons, pizza dough tossing competitions, and Venetian mask

ages 3 to 17, including pizza parties, face painting, masquerades,
pirate treasure hunts, visits to the bridge, and even Italian
For dessert, Costa Magica chefs tempt guests
with Tiramisu, Crème Brulée, Cannoli, Baba Tarantello, Sambuca
Sundae, and Gelato.
