Costa Cruises is investing approximately 550 million euros to build Costa Diadema. It is the 10th cruise ship built in Italy by Fincantieri for Costa Cruises since 2000, representing a total investment of almost 5 billion euros. Among the many innovations onboard Costa Diadema are new wine-tasting venues including the Vinoteca and Proseccheria, the Bavarian Bierkeller for a wide selection of beers, and new dining choices such as Japanese Teppanyaki, Piazza Pizza and Gelateria for desserts.
The new flagship's interiors will offer spacious, split-level public rooms overlooking the sea that are conveniently interconnected, evoking the atmosphere of a vibrant seaside resort. For sun, sea and spectacular ocean vistas, there is a 1,640-square-foot open-air promenade with cabanas.
New entertainment offerings include the Country Rock Club featuring American music and arcade-style interactive games including Laser Maze. Portobello Market Piazza will be the heart of an 11,840-square-foot area consisting of designer stores and retail outlets. The three-level Samsara Spa—located on the upper decks—features an exclusive outdoor area and privileged access. The full-service facility offers guests an opportunity to enjoy the holistic regenerating experience that is the epitome of a "wellness cruise."
