My wife and I chose this cruise for two reasons. We had never been to this part of the world, and we had never been on a Princess cruise. The ports that we were seeing seemed great, parts of the world like Singapore or Vietnam, that we may never go to if not for this cruise. I had read the the ship had just been refurbished in February of 2019, but I would be hard pressed to see that. I found ...

Going around Asia areas Good arrangement Just be careful the Lang Co resort is not safe We will happy have a fee-transfer to central city from the ship, or local shopping mall, this way is more secure and safer May contact to local Saigon tourists or Viet Travel they are very good reputations in VietNam and may not over charge for their service. Toilets in the room is very old, ...

This cruise was chosen to celebrate our engagement and as an early honeymoon. The fact that we were due to enjoy New Years Eve celebrations in Hong Kong including the expectation of fireworks the world has watched year after year. Instead no contingency plans were in place to make alternative options available and in fact many people who had made their own plans were impeded in attending these ...

Princess line needs to look at its Customer Experience Policy

Princess cruise lines needs to relook at the way it does things. The Cruise Tokyo to Singapore was a good cruise but were there any memorable moments? No there were none I could tell you that related to the performance of the Cruise Liner. Why? Accounting! There policy of doing daily preauthorisation on your credit/ Debit Cards followed by a big debit at the end left me and others not ...

Ship was dated, service was very poor, dining was average, take a large bank account with you because they will charge you like a wounded bull!! Don't trust what they tell you as we were told that to certain destinations by foot was not possible but it was, again another ploy to sell you their excursions which are grossly overpriced as are their drinks, note you will be paying a daily gratuity ...

Terrible Dining Arrangement

Cruise embarkation is a bliss. However they mess up the dining time. I book for 5:30pm, and everything is triple confirm with the princess cruise staff during bookings. I am travelling with 2 kids aged 7 and 2 lovely moms 70 years old. They put us at 7:45pm which is a so so no for Asian. I went to the customer service to check on this, and I was given those ( get out of here face and ...

No Surprises To A Little Bit Of Disappointment

We chose this cruise because it went to several ports that we haven't been there before. But we may need a second thought next time to see Japan is good for cruise visit or rather land tour. Some ports are too quiet and some ports are having too short stay time. Besides, too many immigration process have wasted our time to go onshore to visit. Just wonder why they can't give multiple entry ...

WE chose this cruise in celebration of our 43rd anniversary. My wife and I had planned for a cruise of this nature and area coverage for a while. The motivation was re-enacted when my wife saw a special promo on this 16 nights cruise trip(it turned out to be a back-to-back cruises in one package). We thought we could take advantage of the E-Z Air program promoted by Princess on booking new ...

Love to visit Japan on the Diamond Princess. What a great ship and staff. Also great itineraries. The ship is well maintained for its age. The crew is friendly and accommodating. There were lots of shopping but no one was pushy. Bars are attractive and well staffed. We especially appreciated Skywalkers lounge and views while leaving each port for a pre-dinner drink. Both the Explorers and ...

This was our first Princess cruise, and though the crew did an amazing job making our dining experiences wonderful, I feel like the activities could have been better and the land tours could have been MUCH better! We had 4 cabins with 2 people in each, and our travel agent arranged adjoining balcony cabins where they partitions could be removed, so we could go cabin-to-cabin easily. That was ...
