Embarkation: Sydney (Australia)
This was our first cruise and I'm sure it won't be our last.
The cruise was far more than we expected from the first to the last day. The Ship itself is lovely and huge. We had a balcony stateroom on Aloha deck which was very nice. Our room steward was great and was very helpful with any queries. The staff were all the very friendly and made us feel quite at home. We sampled all the dining rooms and all were really good with excellent service provided by the wait staff.. Horizon was our breakfast venue and again no complaints. Spoil yourself and have a balcony breakfast ....... Nothing better than having breakfast on the balcony with champers in one hand while overrlooking the ocean and indulging in a beautiful breakfast. We selected anytime dining rather than a set time each day which we found suited us.
There are numerous areas on the ship so it never feels crowded.
Princess cruise directors organize various activities throughout the day for the guests to More participate in if they wish and Princess Patter is delivered to your room each evening so you can see what is happening next day.Activities range from energetic to sedentary which again caters to all guests of all energy levels.
The menus change daily And are a real treat for the taste buds. We also tried The Steak house and Sabatinis. Both great .Silver-service in the dining rooms is complimented by the excellent wait staff. Not a lot of Australian wine on board so we settled for Californian and NZ wines which were very nice . We loved Diamond Princess so much we have booked to do another cruise on her in March next year. The perfect holiday ..........can't wait ! Less
