Diamond Princess is a wonderful ship

Sail Date: August 05, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The Diamond Princess is large, but never crowded. The beds and cabins were roomy and comfortable. The decor is very subdued and lovely. There were many swimming pools and hot tubs available. There is a Promenade Deck for sitting and/or walking. The ship is very clean and the food was excellent.

Pros: All areas of the ship are pure class

Cons: Casino slot machines paid out in coins

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
This ship offers alternative "anytime dining". We preferred the dining room with the same wait staff each evening.
Cabin / Stateroom
The cabin was roomy and comfortable. We had an "obscured" view, but were able to see over the lifeboats and did not consider this a downfall.
Service and Staff
Room stewards cleaned the cabin early and were back before dinner to clean again. The staff members were very helpful and fun.
The large show was very good. There were also speakers and entertainers aboard at each port that were good.
Juneau, Alaska
Whale watching with Eco Tours was fantastic. Our helicopter flight was canceled due to poor visibility.
Skagway, Alaska
Shopper's paradise. The Red Onion is a great and fun place for lunch.
Ketchikan, Alaska
Lots of rain here. Did not tour.
