Costa Diademia Our Cruise December 24th 2016 We live in San Miguel de Salinas in Alicante, our trip starts December 24th 08,00am we drive to Alicante airport and leave our car with www.parking10.com 8 days for just 48 euro. We hop on a Vueling 1 hour flight to Barcelona at just 35 euro per person. We get Taxi from Barcelona airport to the Cruise terminal for 35 euro for 5 people and 5 cases. Queueing to get on was a bit of a pain especially having to write out and sign sickness form, but in less than an hour we were on board. We were pleasantly surprised by our inside Samsara cabin 12009 it was huge. And In a very privileged position. The ship is fantastic, clean, well laid out. Christmas day was Chrissmassy! Good points nice cabins, nice spa package, nice room attendants, and nice waiters in bars. Show every night, drinks package is well worth it. Facebook internet package is cheap. Bad point’s staff not so happy in their work, self-service buffet a disaster at breakfast and lunch. Spa wet are far too small. You have to buy water! Pizza area really really dirty. We have cruised with Costa before we had suites on the Concordia and the Serena, guess what Costa would not honor our accumulated points. So we have finished with Costa because of this forever.We should be VIPS! On the whole we had a great cruise totally enjoyed the Floretine restaurant for breakfast and evening meals. Managed to get a full English every day. We got free pepsis and 7ups instead of buying water. Trips, Calgaria, we did a coach trip to Nora, boring. Rome do it on your own, far cheaper , less walking, see everything in half the time with Civitachechia Cabs. La Spezia having done the leaning tower of Pisa many time before we went on a shopping tour to “Shoppin outlet village” What a con, very expensive. Not worth the bother visiting. Savona, here we went to Monaco and Monte Carlo, the best trip of the cruise, very impressive, clean and exciting. Marsella, what a dump, they are trying, we were very scared by the amount of Muslims around they spit at women in the street. Couldn’t wait to get back to the ship.
