Sail Date: Jan 2020
Cabin: Classic Ocean View Stateroom

This 3 week old ship was a disappointment compared to Costa Diadema (commenced service 2014) and other older Costa ships I’ve cruised on.

The design emphasis was over the top. The furniture for example, whilst I’m sure was deigned by ‘top’ trendy designers, mostly lacked ordinary functionality - uncomfortable, too low, didn’t fit the average person. Some chairs were so heavy you could hardly move them even with two hands.

Costa Diadema decor is much nicer.
