Great cruise weather could have been better by garterx2

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

Good cruise and having friends with us made it even better. One thing Princess need to have is a lounge where we can go in the evening before dinner where there is quiet as all lounge areas have either music or live entertainers singing and on the most it's so loud.

Great Destinations by paulmt

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Diamond Princess / Destination: Australasia

Fabulous destinations that lived up to Princesses reputation, but the ship disappointed us on this occasion and marred our cruise. I know others will have a different experience but this was ours, on this occasion. We have written to Princess Cruises, no reply yet but am taking into account the holiday season.

Wonderful trip by russav

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

All in all a great cruise. I would definitely go on this ship again. Only negative was that the library had not been restocked after the Japanese cruising season but guess they would have done this in Sydney.

Circle Japan by fgpottery1

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Diamond Princess / Destination: Asia & Indian Ocean

Great way to visit Japan and just get a small taste of the culture. The shore trips were well organised and added to the overall enjoyment of the cruise.

Great time in Japan, just a few hiccups by nihongo

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Diamond Princess / Destination: Asia & Indian Ocean

Overall our cruise experience was nothing less than spectacular. It's been over 40 years since I left Japan and coming back home was nice. Would have love to have done more and unfortunately our cruise was cut short one day due to the typhoon but it provided us with another day in Yokohama and we made the best of it. We are set to head back to the southern tip of Japan via Taiwan in Feb 2019. Hopefully a few excursions could be added with the features i mentioned earlier. Going back to Okinawa where i was born is going to be exciting.

SE Asia overview by jmayfield1811

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Diamond Princess / Destination: Asia & Indian Ocean

We enjoyed this cruise and would recommend it.  The ports were very interesting.

We sailed on the Diamond Princess a year ago but we felt the condition of the ship was not as good this time.  The ship was going into dry dock for a facelift a couple weeks after we sailed so we surmised that our timing was bad.

The only thing we did not like was the description of this as a 12 day cruise.  It was not.  It was a seven day cruise followed by a five day cruise.  Apparently, Princess combines shorter cruises in SE Asia to create longer cruises.  This results in a bit of confusion as other people on the ship are not doing the same cruise as you and quite a few onboard activities are repeated for the people who came on board after the first week.   Not optimal.

Exploring the Far East by vivabeans

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Diamond Princess / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

the different ports, the choice of restaurants on the excursions, the guides mastering the english language, not too happy with length of shopping time in all the excursions! wish there was more time allocated for shopping.

Princess is not as good that was few years ago, especially in Asia by OCM

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Diamond Princess / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

Ck before you book, specially if book a mini suite with a tub that is not proper, and Japanese toilet sear extremely uncomfortable. Also not much help on board, the ship dock in all commercial ports with nothing around, but dinning service was very good, the PIZZA was the best at sea.

First Southeast Asia Cruise by jamesr01

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Diamond Princess / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

Good itinerary to witness SE Asia in a short period. Crew seemed somewhat disengaged. Some activities weakly organized. This cruise lacked the attentive professionalism we have experienced in the past 7-8 cruises. Food presentation disappointing and quality of food was marginal to basically good.Wait staff could use better training to eliminate wasted motion, order errors, etc. This ship needs a comprehensive audit.

Jean's feedback by Cruiser57242264

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Diamond Princess / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

The cruise ship was excellent with more than enough facilities for all tastes. the food was very good, great choice and service. The itinerary was my main reason for booking the cruise and most ports of call were very good and enjoyable to visit. However I did not know that Bangkok was so far away from the port and we had very limited time to enjoy it. I was disappointed with a couple of things. I thought prices were high for alcohol, shop goods  and excursions. Another thing I was really disappointed in was that there was no free wi-fi, it was 79 cents per minute or a package of minutes could be bought. Because I had no mobile phone connection on the ship I needed to contact home using internet services and I was annoyed at having to pay for it.

Diamond Princess Nov 2016 cruise by Chicagosonny

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Diamond Princess / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

The cruise was OK but fell far short of expectations.  This was our first time on Princess.  (We have sailed with HAL, Celebrity and Crystal: 10+ cruises) Had heard that this line was very good.  There were no substantial enrichment events.  The Internet connection was spotty and very hard to use and more importantly costly.  We felt that the ships' shops were overpriced and  invaded us with their non-ending sales.  The artwork overall  was not enticing and the Kinkaid authorized copies were poorly replicated and were not as vivid as copies we have seen elsewhere.  The wine and spirits packages would only work for someone who is a heavy drinker.
