Quote below from a previous review-and I could not agree more ! '"This ship is too big; there are just too many pax for comfort. Perhaps we'll try Seabourn next time. Evenings were pretty much a constant stream of people making ... Read more

Our cruise was around Honshu Island, Kobe to Kobe. Our enjoyment of cruising around Japan is based on our visiting locations we would not likely visit otherwise, the out of the way ports that are not standard tourist destinations. This ... Read more

The Good: The itinerary for this cruise was very interesting and took us to some locations not on the usual tour routes for Japan and Taiwan. Even though I had to pay a 100% supplement as a solo cruiser, the price was still fairly ... Read more

This was our 6th Princess Cruise and our 27th cruise overall on 11 different cruise lines. In our opinion travel is a state of mind, you can look for the problems or enjoy what you experience to the fullest. We choose the latter because it ... Read more

The total experience with diamond princess was satisfactory. The food is good, the cabin is nice and adequate, the crew are very accommodating and hospitable. The one problem is the engine trouble we had that caused a missed port. We were ... Read more

Embarkment-a breeze because the times were staggered so no build up. Disembarkment - my 10th cruise, but disembarkment will never be pleasant and smooth it is what it is. cabinc321; plenty of hanging and drawer space for 2 people; ... Read more

This report is a review of our first cruise. We thoroughly enjoyed this cruise and can't wait to get back on board. I guess this means we are hooked already! Embarkation in Sydney was surprisingly quick, taking less than 30 minutes. ... Read more

This was our first visit to Australia and so we wanted to see as much of the country as possible without too many flights or transfers by coach. It was a wonderful trip as we saw so many diverse places. Hobart was a surprise as we hadn't ... Read more

We thoroughly enjoyed the itinerary Round Australia but have to admit that the Diamond failed, in our opinion, to measure up to other Princess ships that we have sailed on. We were sorely disappointed that there wasn't an ... Read more

The ship was clean and well maintained. Embarking was efficient and quick. This was our 5th Princess cruise, and probably our last. It's obvious that Princess is cutting corners in every aspect of their fleet. The food in the dining ... Read more

We were very happy with Mini Suite D735. The extra room and large balcony was great but the two TV's was an overkill and ridiculous. All the crew were friendly and helpful and I cannot fault the food. We prefer Horizon Court to any of the ... Read more
