Fantastic cruise, 3rd time on Diamond

Sail Date: February 2014
Destination: Australia & New Zealand
Embarkation: Auckland

We celebrated her 10th anniversary on this cruise and we found her in great shape except for the really bad beds. As always the food was terrific, staff were excellent and itinerary incredible. Warren Smith is a wonderful cruise director and the activities were well planned and well attended. Even the seven sea days between Perth and Thailand seemed to pass way too fast. My friend and I were two of only 120 Americans among mainly Australians, who as always are great fun to travel with.

She is now in dry dock in Singapore undergoing major renovations and I hope they are replacing the worn out mattresses while they install a Japanese style bath house and Sushi/Thai specialty restaurant!! Our next cruise will be on the new Regal and we are looking forward to sailing on a new ship. Less

Cabin review: P234

Our cabin was comfortable and we had plenty of room and closet space. However, even with egg crate toppers, we both had problems with the beds which lacked any firmness and were really uncomfortable
