Amazing ship sailing around Japan

published

We did this cruise around Japan called the flower cruise. It was fantadtic and sure enough the cherry blossoms were in full bloom. The cruise was fantastic. Our cabin was a good size, we had the port hole obstructed to try it out although port holes are not worth it as the windows are so dirty with salt spray. I would go balcony if you can afford it and if you spend alot of time in cabin. The tours from the ship were all fantastic and all had English speaking guides but make sure you book the tours where it says English Speaking Guide. The food on the ship is incredible and the entertainment were spectacular. It really is like a city on a ship, it was a very good holiday. Highly recommended!

Beautiful Ship, Fantastic Holiday.

published

We have Cruised on other Princess Ship but loved the Diamond Princess while she is not the newest she have a very nice feel about her We Cruised from Japan to Sydney on her 22 Nights.
The staff looked after our every need, Food was yummy and lots of onboard activities if thats what you are looking for, I preferred to lay by the pools and used the Sanctuary and Japanese Bath House onboard this is a fantastic place.
Will definitely Cruise with them again.

diamond princess - 10 nights cruise around Japan

published

I will just say okay. The entertainment programme at night is poor. Staffs offered quite good service sometimes. To compare with other cruises I have been, I must say I am a bit disappointed .

Princess is excellent

published

I tend to book online direct with Princess Cruises as I prefer to do it direct rather than through an agent. My first cruise I had no idea what to expect but I loved every minute of it. Same with the second cruise, and now my third and fourth are booked. I'm always impressed with Princess. Only thing that could change would be the internet at sea prices. They should be slightly lower. Other than that I highly recommend them.


Disgrace to call it 5 Star

Diamond princess departed Sydney 23/1/2016

published

There were 8 of us on this cruise and it could not of been better. When people get sick there is a procedure to follow and the crew followed it to the best of their ability. It's a shame that some of the sick passengers did the wrong thing. This was our 2nd princess cruise and will defiantly be back.


Pathetic

published

The lowly rated staff were nothing but friendly and helpful but the Captain and his cronies were the rudest, most critical people around. Never ever will I cruise on this Puss box again, "Diamond Princess" is NOT more like cesspit Troll.

Diamond Princess 11 Jan 2016 to 23 Jan 2016

published

First cruise of a life time to New Zealand with Diamond Princess was enjoyable one, we went in a group of 6 and we were on Deck 10 Coribe C246 C249 C254 and the services were great, food and drink were inexpensive. The good thing about the Diamond Princess Cruise was the only cruise ship to accept an Australian currency on purchasing, not the US Currency. Now we are looking forward for our next cruise to South East Asia with the Princess. I love Pure Blond Beer only $5 Australian dollar.

Diamond Princess Oct 12th Sth Pacific

published

I've cruised 5 times with Princess and all were excellent until Oct 2015 on the diamond. Ship not kept clean enough remember this is a much bigger ship than Dawn. We were sick for the last 5 days if cruise and only recovered 2nd week in DEC. So I know you had a nice time and that's great but if you came down with this virus you wouldn't think people were whingers believe me. I know how Princess was before and there not that now. OK please be considerate of others.


Wonderful Diamond Princess Nov/Dec 2015 cruise

published

We've read what the whingers have to say. Well our S Pacific cuise was superb. Simply cannot fault staff, food, accomodation, information and assistance. Entertainment wasn't my style but others loved it. Restaurants were excellent and many passengers agreed with all the above. Of Course there were some incredibly rude low IQ passengers, but these fools will never change. Our first cruise and we loved it!! They STRICTLY enforced dining hand washing --- well done!

Will the Diamond Princess come back to Sydney australia

Stewieasked

Recently booked diamond princess for December 2018 from Singapore cabin price dropped $1400 enquired about refare answer No as I booked under balcony bonanza not current promo. So I think upgrade to balcony ($400) as per promo sorry no balconies available. Next option upgrade to ocean view cost $1540 I would be paying $8700 for a cabin advertised at $7095 a no win situation for me.as an elite member I feel at a disadvantage as I booked early and have only ever sailed with this cruise group since 1986. So I ask has anyone experienced this type of response and if so where is princess cruises loyalty to its passengers when anyone can walk in from the street and get better deals?

The drink package is it worth it as we are not on board the whole time and you pay for full days.
Do they have crown larger beer on the Japan cruise in August?

Hi Antoinette,
I would not go for the drinks package unless you are big drinkers & like multiple expensive cocktails every day. Wine is usually a reasonable price per bottle. I'm not sure what's available on a Japan cruise never having done it I'm afraid. Hope this might help a bit.
