Asia/Orient 17 days Diamond Princess 5 December 2010
We enjoyed this beautiful ship. It took a couple of days to get to know the layout. Our cabin with balcony was very enjoyable and we loved the views, so relaxing!! This is the way to cruise!! Our dining option was "traditional" and we chose 2nd sitting. The international dining room, Table of 8,was very pleasant and we met really nice people, 3 couples from England. Food and Service was excellent. The ship could have more places to enjoy good coffee, there was only the Patisserie, where we found that. Internet connection was very poor, so we used the laptop in our cabin, and that went much better.
Cabin service was really good and the cabin was maintained very well.
Entertainment was OK, we loved to see Trevor Knight again and enjoyed his show. All shows were really good.
Visit to Nha Trang in Vietnam was delightful, enjoyed the embroidery shop and the views from the beach.
Next stop was Bali, we took a tour that took us to Ubud, Celuk, Penglipuran More village and Kintamani, where we had lunch at Lake View restaurant overlooking Batur Lake. Lunch was very good.
Our 2nd port in Australia was Port Douglas, very hot and humid. We took the drive up to Cairns. Really good.
3rd port in Australia was Airlie Beach, but due to rough weather that was a "NO GO" stop.
Final port was Sydney and that was the end of our trip. Words can't describe Sydney, it is alive, beautiful, very busy, good shopping, ferries across the harbour. Less
