Costa Cruises ordered the Dream-class vessel in October 2012, making her the largest ship to be ordered and built for Costa. The ship cost Carnival Corporation approximately $739 million to build. Costa Diadema had her keel laid on 10 December 2012 at Fincantieri‘s shipyard in Marghera, marking the beginning of her hull assembly. She was launched on 15 November 2013, with an official ceremony performed by Franca Grasso, the ship’s madrina at its launch. She was delivered on 25 October 2014 and performed a “Vernissage Cruise,” from Trieste to Genoa on 1 November. Her naming ceremony was held on 7 November 2014 at the Port of Genoa, where she was officially christened by Italian travel agent, Carolina Micelli.

Costa Diadema spent her inaugural season and subsequent seasons cruising the Western Mediterranean until she was redeployed to Dubai in November 2018 to begin cruising the Persian Gulf for the winter season. As of 2019, she currently rotates between the Mediterranean in the spring and summer months and the Persian Gulf in the fall and winter months.
