We have cruised on the Sun Princess from Sydney 3 times, so didn't expect to the Diamond Princess to be much different apart from size , but was pleasantly surprised. Service was wonderful , food was outstanding , everything was so much better than what we had had on the Sun Princess.We had the aft cabin on Aloha deck A749, A bit of noise from the scrapping chairs above , other than that a wonderful cabin , great location , steward was very good, as this was the first cruise that we had princess "Elite" so had all the extras that came with it , the free washing was the most appreciated , we used it and it certainly helped with me enjoying my cruise .
Found the ports very interesting and we only did our tours .With great success and saved heaps of money . We had a great CC roll call , meet so many wonderful people from all around the world.Thank you for your friendship everyone!!!! The Diamond Princess is a huge ship , still was getting lost 15 days into cruise . Did the Chef's dinner and thought it was really worth it ,had thought it was expensive but it turned out to be the best value ever.Would recommend it to everyone.
