The Majestic Princess was beautiful. It was so shiny and new and smelled like a new car. We loved the décor and the newness of the ship. Embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly. There were plenty of elevators and the staff ... Read more

The Japanese are very organized and welcoming to tourists. Great embarkation and help at ports. The Diamond Princess has several features that I like: a Promenade deck that goes all the way around the ship (you have to climb and ... Read more

We were definitely in the minority on this cruise. It appeared that at least 80% of the passengers were Asian with the remainder being a mix of Australian, British, Russian and a handful of Americans/Canadians. I found the cruise to be ... Read more

We chose this cruise (our second princess Japanese cruise) so we could meet up with UK friends and introduce them to Japan as a holiday destination, so the ports we visited were important to the overall experience, and thank goodness they ... Read more

The ship and the senior crew are an absolute disaster. - Many plumbing leaks across the ship: in the cabin hallways, toilet overflows into main walkways, buckets in shops to catch the drips from the ceiling. Crew admit the boat is ... Read more

We just got back from a 9 day cruise around Japan on the Diamond Princess. We booked the cruise because of the itinerary. We had been to Japan several times but had not gone up to the north. This was a great chance to see an area we had ... Read more

We chose this cruise based on the itinerary and a past Princess cruise which we had enjoyed. The embarkation process in Yokohama was a shambles with long queues for check in, then more long queues for immigration. Once onboard our ... Read more

My main reason for selecting this cruise was the itinerary—a chance to experience parts of Asia for the first time. That was certainly the highlight of the trip for me. The cruise itself was enjoyable. I was initially unsure ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of its itinerary. We have been on the Diamond before and we found that not much has changed. The ship was in dry dock for 10 days in Singapore prior to our cruise, the most visible upgrades were new carpets. ... Read more

This was a last minute bargain, two night cruise from Sydney to Brisbane. The ship was going on for another forty nights through Asia so about 700 were only on until Brisbane. I expected to find a ship in need of some TLC as it is to ... Read more
