Christmas cruising

Sail Date: December 2013
Destination: Australia & New Zealand
Embarkation: Auckland
The reason I chose the diamond princess was so I could escape all the madness that surrounds Christmas . So husband and three adult children set of and what a wonderful time it was. No worries about what to eat on Christmas Day, who's house to go to, who to invite, who not to offend. The most relaxing and enjoyable Christmas for a long time.

Food is in abundant, shows entertainment and organised activities are plenty, but also time to relax as much as you want also.

The cruise staff are a pleasure to watch in action and certainly make you feel special . Nothing is too much trouble for the wait staff and again they are in abundance .

recommend this cruise for anyone with children as again they have young clubs on there and all day activities. Most of the children on board were well behaved some got a little bit loud at times.

The best thing was having no internet connection so everyone you met on decks did not have their face in a phone so had to More make conversation with you and look you in the eye.

Recommend to anyone. Less
