Not all bad but the little nuances build up
"They also constantly change their minds on things, so kids were fine in the hot tubs under parents supervision until our last day when all of a sudden they weren't and we were told off by an irate Italian officer, we showed her what the signs said but she said "they're wrong" , my father went to talk to reception and apparently their interpretation of the sign is children age 16-18 have to have parental supervision but otherwise no children.We sailed with Costa previously some years ago and felt very comfortable being English speakers and enjoyed spending time with our European counterparts, we felt that things couldn't be that different and perhaps it was just people not really used to being surrounded by the European Culture...."Read More

Just not what the Costa is promising

Review for a Europe - Western Mediterranean Cruise on Costa Diadema

Lukamik05
2-5 Cruises • Age Under 20

For the holidays me and my family went on a 7 night Mediterranean cruise with Costa Diadema. I did have somewhat of a high expectation because a lot of people were recommending us Costa, so we tried it to see how it really is for ourselves. When we arrived at the port of Savona the boarding process was quite weird and I still don’t get it till this day. Before boarding on the ship you need to ...

We wish to commend the organization of events and concerts, as well as the exceptional hospitality of the staff. We felt genuinely welcomed, from the cabin crew to the waitstaff, officers, embarkation and disembarkation team. The only ...

Total rip-off! Stay away

Review for a Europe - Western Mediterranean Cruise on Costa Diadema

Greeneyes_8
2-5 Cruises • Age 30s

Beginning of August, I went 7 days cruise with my husband to Europe. One of the worst vacations and most expensive by far! Be aware people, if you breath they will charge you. They even charge for stuff that gets canceled later, and of course they will not refund you back your money. When you go downstairs to discuss the refund, they will tell you to wait until your trip ends so all money will ...

First time cruisers, wife booked it for my birthday! I would like to firstly like to say a massive thank you to Kayleigh our English speaking rep onboard for making our cruise a memorable one and going the extra mile to help us! A really big thanks goes to all the crew and workers on the Diadema, they were brilliant! Admittedly the vessel is getting a bit old and tired but very clean and ...

Avoid at all costs.ONLY for jokes

Review for a Europe - Western Mediterranean Cruise on Costa Diadema

costad
6-10 Cruises • Age 40s

We just got off the boat. Worst cruise ship experience I have ever had. I traveled from Greece to Rome and from Rome to Civitavecchia. I took a shower and the cold water didn't work. Literally a hot bath with 30 degrees Celsius outside.Not only that but the bath overflowed. They repaired it at midnight. Also, I paid for a cabin with a balcony and I didn't even see the sky, because above my ...

5-STAR comfort over all

Review for a Mediterranean Cruise on Costa Diadema

First Time Cruiser • Age 20s

It was my first time on a cruise ship with my family. Over all I think it was a VERY nice experience. The cruise had many activities for all age groups: Teen Club (ages 12-18) and Squok club for 11 and under. We took the cruise in june. I recommend traveling with Costa during the summer, since the prices are especially low during the start of june (although the prices rise at the end of august). ...

First off, I think I owe the previous reviewers an apology! We sailed with Costa previously some years ago and felt very comfortable being English speakers and enjoyed spending time with our European counterparts, we felt that things couldn't be that different and perhaps it was just people not really used to being surrounded by the European Culture. However once boarding we soon realised that ...

Last Cruise with Costa

Review for a Baltic Sea Cruise on Costa Diadema

Cruisemaster1986
10+ Cruises • Age 30s

Embarkation went well. Cabin was worn out. We had a grand suite but that was it. Food in the restaurants are way below any quality level. Even the pay restaurants are a joke. Had ordered a lobster it was inedible. Club diadema (private restaurant) it's a joke. I've never had such a bad meal on vacation. English is not understood on this ship. Italians do not speak this language. The ...

Not planing to sail Costa again

Review for a Middle East Cruise on Costa Diadema

AC.Rosanna
10+ Cruises • Age 50s

The price was good and we thought it would be a good idea to cruise the Middle East with our family. We could have choosen other cruise lines but Costa had the best deal so we boarded on Costa Diadema on our first Costa cruise. We have been on other popular cruise lines like Carnival, Royal Caribbean, NCL, MSC and Celebrity and our expectations were high because it was an italian cruise line! ...
