Costa Magica

The finest designers and architects have spared neither effort nor expense in creating the Costa Magica cruise ship. A cruise ship that 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, take guests on a magical voyage to some of the most beautiful locales in Italy. At 105,000 tons she is one of the largest cruise ships ever to fly the Italian flag and the largest ship in Costa's fleet along with her sister the Costa Fortuna.

The Costa Magica can host up to 3,470 guests. Most of the 1,358 cabins - 857 (63%) - are external; of these, 522 (60%) have a private balcony overlooking the sea, and more than 300 have a window. Some of the most particular features of the new ship are the no less than 58 spacious and Elegant Suites, all with a Jacuzzi, available in three different formats.

Dedicated to the magical places in our country, the Costa Magica is conceived as a kind of fantastic trip through the most beautiful and well-known areas of Italy: from the Emerald Coast to Ostia Antica; from Positano to Portofino; from Capri to Grado; and then Bellagio, Salento, Maratea, Capo Colonna, Palinuro, Sicily, Spoleto, Urbino, Vicenza, Bressanone, and so on. Each of these marvelous Italian sites is the source of inspiration for defining the styles and colors of each public ambience on the ship. The interiors of the Costa Magica were designed by the American architect Joe Farcus, who designed the Costa Atlantica, the sister ship of the Costa Mediterranea and the new Costa Fortuna. Instead, Italian architects are involved in fitting out the interiors along with many of the artists whose works will enhance the ship's decor.
