Just came off the Diamond... by Navlek

Sail date: /

Just came off the Diamond Princess today. What an experience. Only started cruising relatively recently and have been on 3 cruises prior viz RCL Quantum of the Seas, Norwegian Spirit and P&O Aurora. Embarkation was a breeze. Within an hour of arriving at the terminal in Singapore, we were in our cabin. Smiles all around and with clinical efficiency. Meals were ready in the Horizon buffet and there was a splendid assortment. Something for everyones taste. We had booked early dining ( 5 30 pm ) in Vivaldi. Our waiter was Budy. What a Gem. He attended to us as if we were the only guests aboard. Absolute pampering. The meals were excellent, and a variety of options to choose from. Every night was a first class dining experience. Massive size and portions of prawn on a regular basis. Unlimited lobster on the Captains gala night. Breakfast and Lunch daily at the Horizon was fantastic. Variety of meals on a daily basis, and desserts to pile on the kilos. Wonderful culinary experience. The ship is beautiful, and immaculate. There was never any smell anywhere on the ship , as i have experienced on previous cruises. The shows were wonderful and professional. Absolute delightful entertainment every evening. Lyn was a fantastic cruise director, and interacted with the guests. Chatting to everyone and her bubbly enthusiasm rubbing off onto all. Movies under the stars was fantastic, and with popcorn and blankets provided. The cabins were lovely and spacious, and Chet ensured it was always immaculate. The destinations were excellent, and included Kota Kinabalu, Nha Trang , Phu My , Laem Chebang and Koh Samui. We did most of the exploring on our own , and thoroughly enjoyed. I would attribute everything good on this ship to one individual and that is the Captain. He was always around the ship and i had many opportunities to chat to him. Such a simple man , but with a golden heart. First time i saw a Captain of the ship, was on this cruise . On all previous cruises , i only saw a photo of the Captain in the daily ship bulletin. We were fortunate to be invited to the bridge , and spent an enjoyable and informative 60 minutes in his company. Everything on this ship surprises me. Even with all the documents required at the various ports, you are practically spoonfed. They fill in everything on the forms and tell you where to sign. How much more stress free can this be. My heartfelt gratitude to the Captain and Staff of Diamond Princess. My expectations were overwhelmingly surpassed.

Wonderful cruise on Diamond Princess Sea of Japan by OBC

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

This was probably my favourite cruise. The Japanese people were amazing. Very courteous & loved having fun. There weren’t any staff trying to sell you products. I think this was because there were so many Japanese on board

Lovely Japanese cruise by cassoz

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

This was our first cruise and I was worried that being in our late thirties there wouldn't be much to do but it caters for most people.

2019 Japan Fall Foliage Cruise by fsw92677

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

Diamond Princess is a unique experience with passengers from all over the world. This is our third cruise on the Diamond Princess and we love experiencing Japan on this ship. She’s a class lady, well maintained for her age, and the itineraries are excellent. The food and service is very good. The Japanese aspects like Kai Sushi and Izumi Spa makes it very interesting feel!

Great cruising with Princess again by gfun

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

We love cruising with Princess and this cruise certainly felt like 'home'! Any cruise around Japan is fantastic but this time the other ports gave us other experiences. All crew and staff were amazing on the ship- any issues were solved without a problem. Food was fantastic and there was plenty to do on board if you chose to join in.

Great Itinerary, Bad Ship by hbainc

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends

Cruise line overall seems to nickel and dime you at every opportunity. Second week activities repeated the first week. Perfect cruise for enrichment lectures -- there were none. Ship, overall, needs to be thoroughly cleaned. So many people with the same cough. Food was generally horrible.

Another top Christmas cruise with Princess by TheSteelys

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

Another great Cruise with Princess, our personal highlight was we renewed our marriage vows, after 31 years, and the event was superbly arranged by the Princess staff, and the Captain made a great effort to ensure we felt special during the event.

The best way to spend Christmas by gfun

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

Diamond Princess is a well laid out ship and while it is showing some signs of age it is still very good. The crew were amazing and always did things with a smile. A great stress free way to spend Christmas!

Asian Cruise by Torbe

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends

Overall, I enjoyed my cruise and satisfied. Despite some issues I enjoyed myself and made the most of the trip. I didn't have any bad experiences that made me hate my trip. I dealt with matters in the most positive way I could. I enjoy cruising and will cruise again whether with Princess cruises or others.

Christmas & New Year Cruise by RossCumming

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

The cruise met all our expectations. Diamond Princess could do with a little make-over but it is more than comfortable and an enjoyable place to spend a couple of weeks. The itinerary lived up to the billing so no nasty unexpected surprises. Do your homework on ports before going and know what you want to do in each port. Book to avoid disappointment.

Great cruise around japan by Juner123

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

Loved the whole cruise.It was a bit last minute as it was a really good price. Apart from Busan and Nagasaki we had not been to these ports before I was a bit concerned after we booked finding out it was japan summer holidays,but really did not find anything that was crowded Even on board ship there was hardly ever more than a dozen people on the promenade deck always loads of chairs.overall an exellent cruise.The Japanese people were very helpful and gracious The only down side was it was hot and humid walking around.
