About the ship

Considered one of the largest cruise ships in Europe, Costa Magica has a very Italian feel to it. The walls are lined with 5500 pieces of impressionist-style artwork and posters and many of the rooms have Italian names. There is an onsite spa with Turkish baths, saunas and a new fitness centre that offers classes for an additional fee. Outside, there are 4 pools and 5 hot tubs, as well as a waterslide, kids club and pool, sports pitch and running track.

Guests will be able to dine at the 4 onboard restaurants, and drinks and snacks are available from any of the 11 available bars and lounges. Cabins are spacious for a cruise ship and have a full ensuite, TV and nightly turndown service. Private balconies are available on Balcony Cabins and Suites, while Outside Cabins will have a window with sea views.

Need a flight back?

As this cruise finishes in Marseille, you'll need to find your own way back to the UK. Luckily Ryanair and easyJet have some cheap options to get you back. You can fly from France to London from as little as £21 one-way.
