Review Summary

I have been on the Diamond Princess twice. The first time (November, 2004)was great, the second time (October 2006) was not so hot. If you don't like having to eat with strangers then you will love the anytime dining/restaurant atmosphere. There are 4 restaurants that you don't have to pay to eat and they're all beautiful. 2 years ago, they each served a different menu every night and the food was great. Now, all 4 restaurants have the exact same menu every night and the food is not very good. The 24 hour buffet on the ship was horrific! The breakfast was the same limited selection every single morning and the lunch was almost uneatable. After trying it twice, we stuck with the hamburgers and hotdots by the pool every day. The activies on board are lame and most cost money. If you want to learn napkin folding or play a trivia game for no prizes then you'll love this. The staff 2 years ago was first rate and very accomodating. The staff now was at times downright rude. One bad thing for passengers traveling w/out children. The ships staff does NOTHING to keep children out of adult access areas, including spa, gym and adults only pool. There have been many changes on the Diamond Princess over the last 2 years and only one was good. Their process of disembarkation has improved dramatically. Still, not worth it.
