The entertainment choices aboard Costa Diadema are endless. The Emerald theatre spans three decks and showcases some of the most exciting shows at sea, including the breathtaking acrobatic performance “Come Fly With Me” and impressive operatic shows. If a trip to the theatre isn't for you, you can choose to visit the 4D cinema, casino, or dance the night away in one of the bars.

While Costa Diadema may be built for relaxation, this doesn’t mean that there is a shortage of activities. For any game lovers onboard, some of the highlights include the interactive laser maze and the Grand Prix racing car simulator. Kids will love the Squok Club and the Kids Pool, while adults can indulge in some retail therapy by browsing the shops on the ship, stocked with anything you might need on your holiday and souvenirs to take home as a reminder of the amazing time you had onboard.
I booked a break in Dubai followed by a cruise for my wife and myself, in February 2020. We made several requests for hotel, private transfers and drinks package on the cruise. The agent who dealt with me lives in North of Scotland, sorry I misplaced his name, was fantastic . Everything he promised to do worked out. The private transfers were bang on time and beautiful big clean cars. The cabin on the ship was well chosen and of course the drinks package. This agent for Iglu Cruise is a great asset to the business and I would have no hesitation in recommending Iglu to anyone what needs help booking a cruise.
This is worst cruise ever and after doing 10 with Costa never again. The food in main dining room augh. Limited choice and things that were available now extra cost yet before their was more choice. Drink package forget no longer alcholic cocktails . Water what a performance you would get bottle water in bars resturants no longer in bars just a glass and only allowed in resturants suppose to have drink package, Since going with Costa many years ago what was included in price is now a extra. Like ice cream is now a extra in dessert course either not availabe or now extra cost and Italian's invented it I no longer wish to comment on Costa Cruise their lost MSC'S GAIN>
Lack of advanced information caused inconvenience. We took sufficient clothing expecting formal evenings but there were none apart from smart casual. Apart from this everything was fine and up to very high standards.
Excellent experience as first-time cruisers both from Iglu and Costa. Advice on options (cabins, flights, extras) and booking experience with Iglu was reassuring, and very beneficial. The overnight in Barcelona and then the 7 night cruise was amazing. The ship was a floating palace. Embarkation (security checks), the cabin (with balcony), service (throughout the ship), food (inclusive), entertainment (theatre, gym, pools, bars) were all very good. Wine package (6 bottles) was worthwhile. DIY port site-seeing suited us, so we didn't book excursions. Overall a VERY positive first cruise, at a decent price.
