After 4 previous cruises on... by Shiphappens

Sail date: /
Ship: Diamond Princess

After 4 previous cruises on the Diamond we’ve decided to do our 5th cruise again on her with friends in March 2018. She’s a beautiful old girl, immaculate inside and without any visible signs of rust on the outside. Staff have always been incredibly helpful and friendly and we’ve never had any problems with the choice of food and venues on the ship. Fellow passengers have always been friendly, polite and well behaved. Princess is our preferred cruise line. Looking forward to this cruise in a few weeks time.

Had a great cruise and a wonderful time in Sydney, disappointed that we missed Akaroa as we had reserved an excursion for the alpine train ride, and Melbourne.

Diamond? Really should be called Cubic Zirconium Princess by joannmondrus

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Diamond Princess / Destination: South Pacific - Australia

We planned for this particular cruise for over a year. In hindsight we would have inquired about what type of ship in more depth. Having our favorites missing on the Diamond made a difference. We were very disappointed we missed two ports, and also disappointed in how the ship was infested with crickets! There were many passengers who were ill on this ship. It ultimately brought my husband down with an awful cold.

Took the Diamond on an Alaska Land Sea tour. Classy ship, wonderful staff. Love afternoon tea! Cream puffs in the shape of swans. The food is also very good both in Main dining areas and especially Sabatini’s specialty restaurant.

Heading out on the Coral... by EddieWouldGo

Sail date: /
Ship: Diamond Princess

Heading out on the Coral Princess next week for Panama and was on the Royal last month to West Caribbean but wanted to post a Diamond review from past experience. I’ve sailed it 3x, 2004 inaugural year in Alaska, oct 2016 Singapore to Beijing and Feb 2018 Sydney to Auckland. It’s my favorite Princess ship. Love the layout and as an Elite member the nightly happy hour is held at Skywalkers nightclub that allows 180 degree views across the back of the ship. I believe only 2 Princess ships have Skywalkers now, Diamond and Star (sailed it in S. America in 2011) I’ve heard they think the placement on top of the ship causes drag thus more fuel. Explorers lounge is well placed near mid ship and easy to stop and watch entertainment from the hallway as you pass. Both specialty restaurants are fantastic, actually they have a 3rd Sushi one but I didn’t dine there. The gym is large, plenty of equipment and space to stretch. Only bummed that it’s primarily set in Asia now and hard to get over there from FL.

Sailed from Sydney on January... by Pottsy

Sail date: /
Ship: Diamond Princess

Sailed from Sydney on January 25th 2018, had an inside accessible cabin. Found the Diamond Princess to be wonderfully accessible for wheelchair access to most areas, particularly loved the self opening doors to the decks. For the first time on any cruise we found our cabin steward wasn’t very good, his understanding of English wasn’t good at all. It took till nearly the end of the trip for him to replace a badly torn doona cover despite the fact that we’d asked twice. He was less than helpful for the whole trip because of his lack of English. Food was great, venues great and the evening shows were fabulous. Can’t wait for my next Princess cruise.

Sailed on the Diamond for... by settermom3

Sail date: /
Ship: Diamond Princess

Sailed on the Diamond for 12days out of Sydney, Jan 25 2018. Had a wonderful cruise to New Zealand. The meals in the Horizon Court were very good, as always.😊 We did have a specialty dinner in the Sterling Steakhouse..the food was amazing. Their tour disembarkation process is excellent (travelled with NCL after Princess and their process is chaos) We weren't happy with our cabin steward (not cleaning as expected), however he changed positions after 2 days, and our new steward, Armando met expectations. We were very pleased to see hand washing stations in the Horizon Court, which were enforced by staff followed by the Purell stations before they provide the silverware. Love the coffee card, wish other cruise lines offered this. We don't drink enough to purchase a beverage package. Had a great time and can't wait for our next cruise on the Star Princess, March 2019.

The singers and dancers in the Princess Theatre on the Diamond Princess were first class! Very high standard from all performers! Food and service in Club class dining was well worth the extra cost.

Diamond Princess in Sydney by Thoman

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Diamond Princess / Destination: South Pacific - Australia

We enjoyed the cruise due to the great weather, most exciting cruise thru the Fjords, with crystal blue sky. We liked the ship but it was not our favorite. We have been on a lot of cruises, so we know the ones we like. We still book the destinations, rather than the ships.

Simply wonderful cruise with incredible... by spersephone

Sail date: /
Ship: Diamond Princess

Simply wonderful cruise with incredible staff across the board. We stayed in the very deluxe family suite and there was ample room for the five of us. There was simply too much on offer for us to see and do everything. However what we did get to was brilliant. Marcus was a great cruise director. The Lotus Spa had so many different ways to pamper yourself and I only got to do one thing every Sea day. I really loved this cruise and hope to be able to do it again one day.

Diamond Princess was a great ship to spend New Year’s Eve on. Crew made the cruise very enjoyable. Meals are amazing. Great to visit some of the ports that we have been to before and see more of NZ Tender rides are the best fun
