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

Third time on Princess - each time getting worse! No one to meet us at airport after 13 hour flight. They turned up late and told us we had to wait 2.5 hours for bus. Cabin OK although shower curtain did not meet base of shower. Cabin ... 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

Fantastic cruise. Meet some lovely people of all ages (no raging teenagers luckily). Princess had a huge range of activities to do each day which we found fabulous. Their organisation of tenders, getting on and off the boat and the ... Read more

We chose this cruise for my 60th birthday celebration, big mistake! The check in involved long waits which we have never previously experienced with any other cruise line but that was just the precursor to disaster. The room was ... Read more

We have sailed with Princess before with our last cruise on the Regal for her inaugural repositioning cruise from Venice to Fort Lauderdale in 2014. We had a brilliant time on that cruise with all the staff being friendly and helpful. We ... Read more

I have looked over other reviews some are squeaky clean others harsh. All cruises are governed by weather and that will not be a factor here.So! Cabin: not bad at all but without a balcony it would have been claustrophobic. T.V. News ... Read more

Embarkation went smoothly in Singapore and was unremarkable. I was just surprised that we were required to surrender our passports. The accommodations on the ship were fine, and I believe we were fortunate to have selected a cabin that ... Read more
