Review of Costa Diadema

Launched in 2014, Costa Diadema is of the new Dream-class, the flagship (replacing Costa Fascinosa) and the newest of Costa Cruises vessels. Her name means “tiara” in Italian.

History - construction and ownership

Costa Cruises is a Genoa-headquartered subsidiary company owned by Carnival Corporation. Costa is Europe's second largest cruise line (after MSC) with year-round operations in the Mediterranean. Costa was founded in 1854 as a cargo shipping company. It started passenger shipping services in 1947, with regular Transatlantic crossings between Europe (Italy) and South America. In 2000, Costa Cruises was acquired by Carnival Corporation (shipowner).

Costa Diadema cruise ship

The 132,500-ton, 4,950-passenger cruise ship Costa Diadema is designed with many innovations in different areas such as food, entertainment, and technology. When put in service, Costa Diadema became the largest Italian-flagged cruise ship afloat. The shape of the cruise ship is similar to the Carnival's Dream, but is different in several ways: it is larger, with more space on board, with new decor and overall design. Diadema’s refined elegance and exquisite atmosphere will make you feel in comfort and full relax. A wide range of attractions awaits for you to experience endless food selection with flavors from the whole world, and the pampering Samsara Spa for maximum well­being.

Besides the ship's staff and crew, Costa cruise passengers are also served by Peper robots - the latest cyborg technology implemented fleetwide in 2016. These humanoid robots greet and guide passengers upon embarkation. They also assist them throughout the cruise by providing information and tips on onboard dining, entertainment, enrichment program (workshops, pre-scheduled events), casino and shopping promotions, shore excursions and tours. Pepper robots are mobile and communicate in 3 languages (English, German, Italian). They can also interpret human emotions by analyzing voice tones and facial expressions.

Cruise itinerary program

Costa Diadema itinerary program is based on Eastern/Western Mediterranean cruises.

Costa Diadema Wiki

Diadema is among Costa's largest liners. Following the inaugural cruise/maiden voyage (November 10, 2014, Venice to Savona), it became the largest Italy-flagged vessel. and replaced Costa Fascinosa as flagship. From the same Dream-class (sisterships) are the "Carnival Fun Ships" Carnival BreezeCarnival DreamCarnival Magic. At the time, Diadema was Costa Crociere's largest shipbuilding order - placed on August 3, 2011. Vessel's construction (in Venice Italy at Marghera Shipyard) started on December 10, 2012 (keel-laying ceremony). The vessel was launched (floated out from drydock) on November 16, 2013, officially delivered to Costa on October 25, 2014, and christened on November 7 in Venice.

Diadema was the first-ever cruise ship to debut a laser maze show. All guests of the event were allowed to race through it. In 2016, on the liner was tested Costa's 4GOODFOOD program for decreasing food waste on cruises. The results were ~50% reduction in food waste, and up to 20% lower food consumption at the onboard self-service buffet restaurants.

In 2017, the Diadema became fleet's first vessel on which was introduced the onboard-made, certified mozzarella produced from buffalo milk. The new product (branded "Latteria del Curatino") was created via a partnership with two Campania-based dairy companies - "Comat" (dairy equipment manufacturer) and "Podere dei Leoni" (creamery, leading Italian producer of certified buffalo mozzarella). With Diadema, Costa became the world's first cruise company serving fresh-made mozzarella on board.
