Thoman's Past Cruises

Diamond Princess

January 2018 - 3 days on Diamond Princess

Diamond Princess in Sydney

We enjoyed the cruise due to the great weather, most exciting cruise thru the Fjords, with crystal blue sky. We liked the ship but it was not our favorite. We have been on a lot of cruises, so we know the ones we like. We still book the destinations, rather than the ships.

Thoman's Tips

Tauranga, New Zealand - Beautiful beach front town that we did a hike to the highest point above the coast with great views.
Napier, New Zealand - Art deco town that was so cool. Beautiful day as well. Small town, and not a lot to do except walk around town and see the way they rebuilt this town after an earthquake.
Diamond Princess Diamond Princess - One thing we enjoyed was the big screen TV out at the pool area. we had nice warm weather on our cruise, so they showed movies most of the day, and into the night if you wanted to watch. It was fun. We did get to watch the Super Bowl all day on that screen, and it was great. They made popcorn, and appetizers for us so it was fun.
Veendam Veendam - This ship is very nice and a nice size. We loved the simpleness of it, and everything was easy to access.
AmaDara AmaDara - Food is very good, and they will also attempt to meet any food issues you may have.
Chongqing, China - We disembarked here and got on a plane after a brief bus tour of the area.
Wuhan, China - We did not see Wuhan, as our trip was modified due to an accident on the Yangtze before we got there.
Cruise Three Gorges - scenery was great.
Cruise Yangtze River - That was really beautiful, and amazing to see what they did here in moving all of the people that were displaced.
Viking Emerald Viking Emerald - The boat was very comfortable, but do not expect a "cruise ship" experience. This is a standard river boat. China also has some hot and muggy weather, along with smog in their big cities. We found that this time of the year it is not bad, and we also had rain only one day.
Stockholm, Sweden - Not enough time there. The cruise in and out of the bay was about 2 hours and really fun to watch, You are cruising right by the shore.
Copenhagen, Denmark - We stayed for several days before near the Stroget, and it was so fun. Loved the city and easy to get around. We walked everywhere.
Norwegian Star Norwegian Star - We suggest you try every one of the specialty restaurants. they all have something different to offer, and they do a very good job in preparing it nightly.
