Whittier to Beijing: Diamond Princess Cruise Review by Mermen
Overall Member Rating
Whittier to Beijing
We stayed in a Penthouse Suite, mid ship. The service and amenities were fantastic. Loved the suite life! Overnight stay at the Captain Cook was ok. Tired hotel, but good supper in their pub. Transfer service was very good. Coach to Whittier. Our ports of call were in Russia, Japan, South Korea and 3 in China. Several sea days, which we loved. Lotus day spa was just right!
We reserved a table for 2 for the early dining, and were given a table in the Savoy. Not really impressed with Princess' culinary and dining room service...however their steakhouse satisfied! In-room dining was good. Enjoyed a couple of evening meals at MUTS and that was fun.
Enjoyed our cruise and the staff. Would give the nod to More Celebrity for service (where the smiles and attention seem more genuine) and dining in Blue / Specialty venues seem more to our liking.
Glad we did this itinerary, finally! Less
