The Diamond Princess is a Queen!

Sail Date: April 01, 2007

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

This was our first cruise and we were totally satisified Princess Cruises.
The Diamond Princess is a remarkable vessel, most notably it's layout and the variety of lounges, pools, and restaurants on board. You can enjoy a wide open sunny poolside experience, or, if the sun's too much, go to a covered pool area with the same ocean view. The ship was clean and modern with great artwork and decor.

Pros: Great ship, great service, lots of variety and fabulous excursions.

Cons: Internet connections are tough at sea, maybe technology will change that...

Recommends Diamond Princess? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Food options were great - if you wanted traditional or formal dining, it was there, but if you wanted to kick back and just do pizza or a burger or a buffet, that option was yours as well.
Cabin / Stateroom
Our balcony room was fantastic, a great place to enjoy privacy if you wanted some escape time from the larger crowds. Beds were comfortable and bathroom facilities were very good.
Service and Staff
Everyone on board is friendly, our purser was absolutely fantastic!
Good options here - we saw 3 different comedy acts, a musical theater performance, multiple live bands (rock, jazz, R&B) and danced the night away at least twice in the nightclub!
Mazatlan, Mexico
We thought that Mazatlan had a nice feel about it, a little more traditional town. Beachfront restaurants had nice views.
Don't Miss: Best shopping area is the Golden Zone in Mazatlan!!!
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
The beachfront area of PV is very nice
Don't Miss: Don't forget to stop at the Hard Rock for beer in the hot afternoon...!
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Beautiful, say no more.
Don't Miss: The cantinas near the pier are strategically located for Margarita seekers...
