We are Platinum cruisers with Princess and this last cruise on Diamond has cured us---we will no longer book Princess. It was quite evident to us and to many others we talked to on this cruise that Princess has clearly downgraded their offering in pursuit of profit!! - Embarkation--Little or no attention to platinum/elite cruisers as all passengers in same mob scene dropping off luggage prior ...

Embarkation was fine and we were on the ship within 45 minutes. Cabin was fine. Staff in all the bars and restaurants were great. The buffet is not big enough for the amount of people on the ship with the usual walking around and around trying to grab a trouble at breakfast and lunch was a pain!!!!!! Especially with so many days at sea people were using the tables to play cards. First port of ...

My husband, and I planned on this cruise for over 2 yrs. We were so excited to visit a part of the world we did not see before, and like the list of ports we would visit. When we booked this cruise (on board the Regal Princess on a prior cruise), we were given information the Diamond Princess was going to be a newly refurbished ship, with upgrades throughout. What was not told to us was the ...

We both wanted to cruise the NZ fjords, so chose this cruise . Weather impacted so we missed one NZ port and Melbourne too, so that was disappointing, but they cannot control the weather... Cabin was nice, clean and roomy. Food was ok - not the best we have had..but not the worst either....seemed slightly aimed at the Amercian market. There were alot of Americans on this cruise. Entertainment ...

This was our 2nd time on Diamond Princess and 2nd time with Princess Cruises. We have completed 7 cruises altogether. Our favourite time on our cruises have been the pre dinner drinks, most often we visit the bars where we feel most welcome and the bartenders have a likable nature and sense of humour, also happy hours help too. On this cruise there was only one bar that gave us the ...

Because we have cruised previously.with Princess and found them to be faultless ——except for this cruise..Because of the following,toilet holding tank dumping at sea is this a usual procedure? Strong toilet stench coming from vents espcially on the STBD side at deck 7 level. No Happy hour on this cruise.previous cruise have had these. Blue smoke coming from funnels especially in ...

We chose this cruise to do something out of the ordinary for New Year's Eve. Granted, we still ended up spending the countdown in our room, away from the crowds, but it was magical. The ship is so smooth, apart from a little rockiness here and there. The staff are attentive and dedicated to their roles, helpful whenever you needed anything. The entertainment that we got to participate in was ...

I like sailing with princess,the food was excellent,ports were good and getting on and off the ship was easy. The television did not work well,and the internet was very slow and not worth the cost,e.mails were difficult to send and receive.staff aboard ship were excellent and service was very good.The evening shows were repeats of previous cruises,guest performers were mediocre In spite of a ...

The Fiordland National Park was worth going on this cruise

We went on this cruise because we wanted to join our friends and see New Zealand and Australia. There were too many (five) days at sea and not enough things to do that interested my husband and I during the day. Glad we had a balcony because it was difficult to find a place to sit in the public areas when at sea. This will be the last large ship we will go on because there are too many ...

To experience being on a cruise ship..We found the service to be excellent..the cabin steward and the restaurant staff were amazing.. The cabin was a bit small for four people..but adequate.. The on board spa treatments were too expensive, but the staff were friendly. The productions of dancers and singers was excellent. The food was amazing.. just needed a few no dairy options maybe ...
