Major Updates to Debut on Costa Magica, Costa Pacifica

Costa Cruises has announced major shipboard improvements on Costa Magica and Costa Pacifica.

In addition to regular maintenance during the two ships’ dry dock at Chantier Naval de Marseille at the Port of Marseille Fos, both ships will receive upgrades in their public areas and the addition of new features, Costa Cruises said.

Costa Magica, which left Marseille from its dry dock on November 25, underwent a major refurbishment of the restaurants and wellness areas. Changes to the layout and upgrades in the galleys in the Vicenza Club Restaurant and Bellagio Buffet Restaurant will enable guests in suites and Costa Club Diamond Pearl members to more fully enjoy the Club Restaurant, Costa said, while the Buffet Bellagio Restaurant has been improved with a more efficient space allocation. The spa’s wellness and gym spaces were renovated and a sauna, thalassotherapy pool and thermal area were added to enhance the spa experience.
