  3. Costa Diadema
I've written an extensive report of our experience on the costa board. This was deal we couldnt say no to. A guaranteed inside cabin,so weren't expecting much. Upgraded to a Balcony. Cabin spotless throughout the cruise. Some of the best food i've ever had. It is aimed at the Italian market and therefore meats, cheeses etc are aimed at western Europeans. Hot breakfast in main dining room only. cold in buffet.Dining times later than english/american lines. Entertainment good to great. Bands around the ship-good. Laundry service reasonably priced but do NOT send anything other than plain laundry. A good dress shirt of mine was ruined (took all the glitter off) and you will only get back 7 times the laundry charge. it does clearly state thin on laundry t&c. so i only got back 21€ We enjoyed the cruise a lot but do remember this is aimed at the Italian market. We'd definately go back on her.
