As one of only two Princess ships built in Japan, it's not surprising this exotic gem can often be found sailing to the most intriguing destinations abroad! Great tasting food is one of this ship's highlights, offering the popular Italian restaurant, Sabatini's, where freshly prepared pasta creations reign supreme. In the elegant dining rooms, you'll find sommeliers to help you enhance your meal with paired wines. Poolside, our hand-tossed pizza is always served to you just out of the oven. Two Princess exclusives, Movies Under the Stars and the Sanctuary -- a serene retreat only for adults -- have recently been added to Diamond Princess!

Sails from:

Hong Kong , Keelung (Taipei), Taiwan , Kobe (Kyoto), Japan

Diamond? Really should be called Cubic Zirconium Princess by joannmondrus

We planned for this particular cruise for over a year. In hindsight we would have inquired about what type of ship in more depth. Having our favorites missing on the Diamond made a difference. We were very disappointed we missed two ports, and also disappointed in how the ship was infested with crickets! There were many passengers who were ill on this ship. It ultimately brought my husband down with an awful cold.

Diamond Princess in Sydney by Thoman

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

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.

SE Asia overview by jmayfield1811

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We enjoyed this cruise and would recommend it.  The ports were very interesting.

We sailed on the Diamond Princess a year ago but we felt the condition of the ship was not as good this time.  The ship was going into dry dock for a facelift a couple weeks after we sailed so we surmised that our timing was bad.

The only thing we did not like was the description of this as a 12 day cruise.  It was not.  It was a seven day cruise followed by a five day cruise.  Apparently, Princess combines shorter cruises in SE Asia to create longer cruises.  This results in a bit of confusion as other people on the ship are not doing the same cruise as you and quite a few onboard activities are repeated for the people who came on board after the first week.   Not optimal.

Bring your own hair dryer unless you actually like those crappy ones that are attached to the wall.

IF you're doing anytime seating, make reservations in the morning to avoid waiting for a table for dinner - esp. with a party of 6+.
