Review SummaryI would not recommend the Diamond Princess, or any other Princess ships. There could have been more activities planned for "at sea days, or scenic cruising days", instead the highlights of the cruise days were, "ping pong tournament, card games, and 1 bingo game". The most awful experience was disembarkation. Sure they had "on-board check-in program for qualified guests, but for me personally, my cruise came with pre and post cruise transfers. I had rented a car in Vancouver. Princess cruiseline staff said I would be able to disembark the ship without problem. Came to find out on the day of disembarkation I would have to go with the tour bus to the airport, Claim my luggages, and then I could rent a car. if only princess cruiseline staff were more knowledgeable, this problem would have been prevented. Overall, I am very disappointed in this ship.
Ports Of Call
Pros: The food was amazing. Everynight I look forward to dinner, just to see what they have in store for us next. Lots of delicacies served. Wonderful presentation. Just superb!
Cons: The ship did not have activities. Can simply be described as BORING. The cruise director and his assistants were corny, seems like they were doing their job "just because". There was not enough talk on their experiences on different tours, like other ships I had taken
Recommends Diamond Princess? No.
