Ship Facts: Diamond Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Diamond Princess Deck Plans
Don't book Princess early

We are seniors ; 15+ cruises with lots of time. The 22 night cruise left from Vancouver and went to Alaska, Korea, Japan & China. The ports were all new to us.

We pre booked a few sightseeing tours - but it was easy with some prior research to arrange last minute tours on our own at the ports. Princess did a very good job of describing the ports (the night before)and arranged for buses to take us from the ports to town most without charge. Wonderful!! The ports in Asia were amazingly modern with skyscrapers and wide clean boulevards and could have been in any big modern 1st class city in the world

Downtown Vancouver our embarkation has many excellent hotels and it was an easy and inexpensive taxi ride to the ship. we stayed 2 nights at the Marriott so we could tour the city.

Our stateroom was not too far from the elevators and was a good size. It was by the art studio.

Our wait staff and the food was excellent with many high end seledtions, varied, and lots of choices.

We embarked early and had almost no wait. The same to disembark - (we pre booked a limo to the airport in Bejing as it is far). The staff on both beginning and end was efficient & helpful.

The entertainment was minimal but there was something every night and it was varied and acceptable.

In summary with all that was good I am not sure we would ever book with Princess again. They lowered the price of our cabin category by $450 per person and would not give us the lower price and refund our money. We knew about the lower price because our son received and e mail the day we paid in full. After much complaining ...($900 for the 2 of us is a lot to complain about) the gaive us an unobstructed view 2 decks lower. It left us feeling "gyped". Never book Princess early!!!
