    Costa Diadema. The crown jewel of Costa’s exquisite collection of ocean liners. The ship's name — Italian for "tiara" — merely hints at its stunning beauty. Here are a number of ways the ship wows passengers:

    Architecture, art & design

    The ship’s decor is punctuated by plush, vibrant furnishings that are the perfect blend of innovation and timeless elegance. The creative genius of master architects, interior designers and artists blend to create a captivating environment where each space is uniquely different from the next. Expertly placed lighting, glass, bold color and texture combine to create one-of-a-kind spaces.

    Amenities for guests of all ages

    Step aboard Costa Diadema and find yourself captivated by the endless amenities. Pools glittering with mosaic tile, a lively casino, three-level theater, 4D cinema, a kids’ club featuring games from the popular TV show “Peppa Pig,” and even a country rock club. Among the most impressive is the four-story Samsara Spa, complete with a fitness center, thalassotherapy pool and UVA solarium. With over 45 treatments it's near impossible to experience everything the spa has to offer. Aroma stone therapy, nourishing steam clay baths and mystifying Ayurveda rituals are some of the most popular.

    Food & wine

    The cuisine is the perfect representation of the passion and tradition of Italy. Michelin-starred chefs Fabio Cucchelli and Bruno Barbieri have designed regional menus featuring 252 decadent Italian dishes. The ship features a Gelateria, Pummid’oro Pizzeria, a Teppanyaki Asian fusion restaurant as well a beer pub and Mozzarella Bar. A refined selection of wines chosen by the Italian Sommelier Association pair expertly with the authentic Italian flavors.
