Diamond shines but could be a touch better
Our cabin was usual, clean and available. The TV was poorly placed and really neither person in the cabin could see it clearly. Not that we watched much TV but sometimes, it is relaxing at the end of the day.
The lectures were outstanding. We had a port lecturer that was independent and gave tips. While we did not tour on our own, it was great orientation. The enrichment More speaker was wonderful. Very perfect balance of facts and cultural education. These enhanced my trip.
The excursions were of a good variety. Well organized.
Sea days could have had a little more variety. Most sea day activities were exactly the same. I needed the downtime but really there could have been some other types of activities. Creativity at sea was something I had not seen before and appealed to my friend.
Evening entertainment in the main theater was not impressive. The production shows were fine and standard. But the other shows were all solo singers. There was no variety. I like the magic show,guy with an unusual instrument, or any other variety.
The dining room was fine. We do anytime dining. The menu was a bit odd. The first week, it was pork, pork, and pork as choices. I like pork but too often. By week three it was duck, duck, duck.
Desserts were also predicable and a bit boring.
End of cruise went fine.we took the end port tour which was great and a good way to end the cruise.
Generally, a great tour of Asia. Less
