Diamond Princess Cruise Review to Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)
The cruise itinerary was the reason for choosing this cruise and that was an excellent choice. The ship was as expected well appointed and had all that was expected. Boarding took far too long. The downsides were the excursions which were expensive and all included visits to lacquer or silk factories where prices were expensive and detracted from what we went to see. There was obviously a benefit to the guide. I could not complete the majority of staff any higher with the exception of shore excursion, who had to be chased if you had a complaint and in my case failed to answer it after 7 days. I would have expected hosted bridge with 9 sea days.
