Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was spotless at all times from what I could see, I liked the layout of the diamond easy to get around.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Very good size cabin the layout was excellent for storage and plenty of hanging space the bed was a tad hard but nothing to worry about, our cabin steward Hester always kept our cabin clean and tidy each day.

Ship tip

Do it, have fun and relax.

Ports of call

Yokohama (Tokyo), Japan Did not visit port

Because under advisement of our TA we were told it would be better to stay in Tokyo so after two days in Tokyo and nowhere to exchange our money by the time we got to Yokohama it was time to sail.

Shimizu, Japan

Lovely port we could exchange our money when we found a bank that would exchange aud to yen not very helpful especially in the terminal where they couldn't be bothered helping to exchange our money only wanted American money, I probably won't go to Japan anymore that was our first time in this country and from what I saw I didn't like.

Hong Kong

Phu My (Ho Chi Minh City), Vietnam

Terrible port everything looked dirty and obsolete. Street hawkers wouldn't leave you alone especially the older women spoilt the whole shopping experience.
