Costa Diadema Cruise Review by Simimaus

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2016
  • Destination: the Western Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Premium Ocean View

This was our 9th cruise. First time in Costa. Food in dining rooms was nasty. Buffet was good, but too many people went there. Probably because they didn't like dining room food either. Beware of bread - it's rock hard, not edible!!!!

Staff is stuffy, not friendly sa on carnival or Norwegian. Also, they don't know anything. We were lied to about the drink programs numerous times. We had our souvenir hard rock tshirts disappear from our cabin and found somewhere else on ship. My nieces tennis shoes disappeared also.

People leaving and joining cruise at every port. Safety drill every day for newbies. Which was very disappointing for people already on cruise because bars were closed, and that's the only place to get drinks, coffee etc.

Had cabins 2026 and 2024 ( had hair and dust in shower/ bathroom).

Even so we had nice weather they never retracted the roof for the pool deck. It got hot and stuffy in there. Not much action anywhere.
