Costa Diadema Overview

Costa Cruises has invested approximately €550 million in what will be the largest cruise ship flying the Italian flag at 132,500 gross tonnage, 306m long and 37.2m wide, and with a total passenger capacity of 4,947, 1,253 crewmembers and 1,854 cabins.

It is the same shape and size as Carnival's 'Dream' class of ship, and will be the biggest, most spacious and most modern ship in the Costa fleet, in terms of the services, decor and overall design.

Designed by veteran Carnival designer Joe Farcus, expect the ship to be big, brash and bold, with lots of emphasis on fun and enjoyment. New features include split-level rooms overlooking the sea and -- borrowing directly from Norwegian Breakaway (and Getaway) -- an outdoor promenade to 'connect' passengers more closely with the sea.

Costa Diadema will offer a number of new experiences and activities with new restaurants and bars, including Vinoteca, Proseccheria, the Bavarian-style Birreria, the Japanese Teppanyaki, the Piazza Pizza pizzeria and the Gelateria. There will be new entertainment in the form of the Country Rock Club and the Lazer Maze, a multifunctional room with interactive games.

A shopping area, Portobello Market Square, lies at the heart of the ship -- a 1,100m² area filled with shops, an outside walkway with cabanas and a 500 meter esplanade. The new ship also sees a return of a three-level Samsara Spa with an exclusive outdoor area where passengers can enjoy their holiday in an atmosphere of total wellness and relaxation.The ship also features a huge kids club, in the shape of a castle.

There will be 1,854 cabins, including 852 cabins with private balcony, 61 balcony suites, 254 outside cabins with sea view and 687 inside cabins.

Costa Diadema will be christened on November 7, 2014, and will offer seven-day Mediterranean cruises.

We booked this cruise primarily to escape the usual Christmas hype and also to experience the brand new Costa Diadema ship. We spent two nights in Barcelona prior to joining the ship on 22nd December 2014 and must admit to feeling some trepidation ... Read more

First impressions of the ship were that she was extremely well presented and fitted to a high standard. We were one of the very few guests from the Uk on board, and thought we might struggle with the entertainment. This was not a problem , as it was ... Read more
