Costa Diadema Cruise Review by Bigdanwesto

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2018
  • Destination: the Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Samsara with Ocean View Balcony

The check in process was very tedious but once we arrived at our suite I was surprised to see it was much smaller than expected. Balcony was cramped also. Barely enough room for 2 seats. Staff were a mixed bag of emotions to be honest. Some very happy, others seemed like they had enough. Food was good. Breakfast buffet was average but the ala carte was much better.

Facilities seemed rather simple. Empty bar lounges. Tiny casino with 2 tables and heaps of pokies. Pool area was packed with kids as expected and was less than inviting.

English is not the preferred language onboard and it's hard to communicate to most people you meet also.

Shore excursions were simple and seemed rushed. Given the short duration of the port visit, travelling 2-3hrs by bus to see something quickly wasn't worth over 100 euros each.

Overall it was an average experience and I would not recommend it if you only speak english
