I will break this up into sections so it would be easier to understand. Keep in mind that this is a Japan Cruise. 70% of passengers are Japanese. I have been cruising with Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, and Carnival, but by far, this ... Read more

This was my seventh cruise (all over the last ten years) and probably my favourite. I think Princess has "ruined" my husband and me for P&O, because after experiencing what a cruise can be like with Princess, we won't be ... Read more

Great cruise and Itinerary The only thing different about this cruise from other Princess cruises is that the portion size for dinner is smaller than what you are used to. We were warned about this from our waiter. No worries however, ... Read more

This cruise was chosen for the excellent itinerary. We were able to travel the long distance to this part of the world and have a long, 16 day cruise after spending time in various locations pre-cruise. Several other cruises and tours ... 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 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
