Diamond Princess

November 2016 - Diamond Princess to Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

Diamond Princess Nov 2016 cruise

The cruise was OK but fell far short of expectations.  This was our first time on Princess.  (We have sailed with HAL, Celebrity and Crystal: 10+ cruises) Had heard that this line was very good.  There were no substantial enrichment events.  The Internet connection was spotty and very hard to use and more importantly costly.  We felt that the ships' shops were overpriced and  invaded us with their non-ending sales.  The artwork overall  was not enticing and the Kinkaid authorized copies were poorly replicated and were not as vivid as copies we have seen elsewhere.  The wine and spirits packages would only work for someone who is a heavy drinker.

Chicagosonny's Tips

Singapore - worth taking tours of entertainment venues and gardens
Diamond Princess Diamond Princess - Only use Princess tours as a last resort or outside vendors don't offer a tour. Find options through websites well in advance. We used Cruise Critic to connect with other folks and we toured and transferred with them. We didn't feel that the specialty restaurants had any value ($29/person).
