Ship Facts: Diamond Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Diamond Princess Deck Plans
Great Experience

We spent one night in Vancouver and departed on May 25th for seven day cruise to Whittier. We were a bit overwhelmed with the size of the ship and trying to find everything. The little Scavenger Hunt game is a clever way to force you to explore. Our cabin on Baja deck was quite nice. Our steward was perfect; efficient and professional. The balcony is a little more private because of no overhang. And, since the weather was unusually clear, we tended to use the balcony. Port side is nice for long afternoon sun. By the way, no one ever told us, but the carpets on Port side have a pink border. This helps getting out of elevators to find the correct side.

We booked our own air travel and chose to book our own excursions on port days.

We ate one evening in Sabbatini and it was quite good, but I'm not sure that it was worth the extra charge. The other restaurants only seem to differ in location and ambience..the menus looked identical. Other than one grumpy waiter, service was cordial and friendly. Breakfast buffet in the Horizon Court is more food than I needed. Twice, we simply ordered room service.

Luggage and transfers were handled flawlessly.

We can only compare to the comments of others. But, thumbs up from us.
