It was our first cruise and we absolutely loved it! The ship itself was magical, we especially loved the Atrium and the Open Deck Pool on Deck 14. The Service was amazing! Every member of the crew we interacted with felt like old ... Read more

On a previous cruise, other passengers advised us to only cruise with Princess as 'everything is perfect'. Well, it wasn't! On embarkation, we weren't guided to our room, but had to find it ourselves. The room was smallish, about ... Read more

Having done many cruises with Princess we found just like RCCL they are going down hill fast. The Diamond is about to go in for a refit but feel it is about 12 months overdue, this ship is very tired. Service onboard was very average ... Read more

We arrived in Singapore 3 days prior to the cruise departure giving us plenty of time to explore the City and get into the holiday spirit. It was our first time in a mini-suite and we were impressed with the accommodation though the ... Read more

I would rate the cruise as average when compared to other cruise lines we have been on. When comparing with other cruises It is probably easier to identifying the negatives rather than the positives. Embarkation and debarkation was ... Read more

The ship is getting very worn out and tired. Staff are mostly nice but are putting on a brave face to receive their pay cheques as if you question them they all complain that their contract is too long and they cannot wait to get off the ... Read more

We wanted a relaxing holiday at sea aqnd that is what we got. The area was important in that it was a relatively short flight - most of the places we had visited previously so they were not that important. We tend to choose cruises as they ... Read more

We arrived in Singapore 3 full days before embarkation. Staying near a MRT station was a big plus as we found this a very cheap and convenient way to get around. The Hop-on Hop-off bus was a good way to view Singapore overall and get off ... Read more

1. Twenty three days were enough to gauge the skills of the Crew of the Diamond Princess - some shone and some only just glittered, some just faded. The first "port of call" for most passengers on a Cruise liner is the ... Read more

We are from the USA, but live in Asia, and flew into Singapore the Day of the Cruise. I call this the ship of fools due to the insanity on the Boat - This is our 22nd cruise and 4th on the Princess Line. Boy were we snookered. ... Read more

We chose this as a last minute Christmas cruise. As always we were impressed with the Hotel Staff. We were very fortunate with the weather, given the disastrous previous cruise, but that is the luck of the draw. We chose the Diamond ... Read more

We choose this cruise as the destinations looked perfect as a introduction to the Far East, however sadly this was not to be. We had upgraded our cabin to a mini-suite with balcony, as we were aboard for 13 nights and decided the extra ... Read more
