Costa Magica Review
About This Ship
Layout: Cabins generally follow the outline of their Carnival counterparts, with the notable addition of a Grand suite category. More than 60% of accommodations have an ocean view and, of those, 60% have balconies. Balconies have chairs and tables, and dividers can be unlocked to connect some cabins. Every cabin has adequate closet and drawer/shelf storage, as well as bathroom shelves. Suites have a generous walk-in closet. Well-designed lifeboat placement ensures unobstructed sea views from all outside cabin windows.
Amenities: Light-wood cabinetry, soft pastel decor, mirrored accents, Murano-glass lighting fixtures, a small refrigerator, a personal safe, a hair dryer, and a seating area with a sofa, chair, and table are typical for ocean-view cabins and suites. Inside cabins have ample room, but seating areas consist only of a small table and chairs. Suite passengers also enjoy DVD players and an enhanced room-service menu.
Bathrooms: Bathroom extras include shampoo and bath gel in shower-mounted dispensers; suite bathrooms include a whirlpool tub and two sinks.
Accessibility: Twenty-seven staterooms are designed for passengers with disabilities.
