Costa Diadema Cruise Review by Excid8888

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2015
  • Destination: the Western Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Premium Balcony

This ship spoilt cruising for me,it is too big, too crowded and to expensive, example a bottle of water 3.75 euro plus 15% tax,water is not available when the dining room closes so if you have medication to takeover outside those times you need to buy water,not very nice but it is a way of getting money out of you.

Lifts are slow and always congested , lengthy queus going to meals , embarking and disembalking

First class shuttle bus rip off, 9.95 euro +tax return to travel 9 minutes into town on the Costa bus, local bus 3.00 euro return and drops off closer,Costa takes a grab wherever they can,you want a piece of pizza on this ship you pay for it,not on Holland ships

Staff were great and so was most food.

Previously sailed with Holland America and found that to be much much better in every way.

Doing another cruise with costa because it is already booked but it will be my last.

No english speaking movie channels on your room TV on this ship

All in all spoilt by the Money Grab.

Cabin Review

Premium Balcony

Nice cabin although the shower drain was partly blocked and caused flooding
