A fair to good cruise with superb food and food service. The rough spots were generally with Passenger Services (Front Desk) lack of knowledge and long lines trying to access them. Also the cabins (mini suites) had broken sofa beds (in 3 of the 4 that we had) which were not repaired or replaced during the whole voyage despite daily requiests

Superb Food with superb waiter services. The only negative is the weight gain\, but that is not the ship's problem

the mini suites were good except that the sofa beds were broken in 3 of the 4 mini-suites we had. They were not repaired despite daily requests during the whole voyage. Consequently our two children slept on collapsed sofa beds.

Pros: Food and Food Service by far

Cons: Lack of pre/post cruise info some cabin problems

Recommends Diamond Princess? No.
