We have cruised on the Sun Princess from Sydney 3 times, so didn't expect to the Diamond Princess to be much different apart from size , but was pleasantly surprised. Service was wonderful , food was outstanding , everything was so much better than what we had had on the Sun Princess.We had the aft cabin on Aloha deck A749, A bit of noise from the scrapping chairs above , other than that a wonderful cabin , great location , steward was very good, as this was the first cruise that we had princess "Elite" so had all the extras that came with it , the free washing was the most appreciated , we used it and it certainly helped with me enjoying my cruise . Found the ports very interesting and we only did our tours .With great success and saved heaps of money . We had a great CC roll call , meet so many wonderful people from all around the world.Thank you for your friendship everyone!!!! The Diamond Princess is a huge ship , still was getting lost 15 days into cruise . Did the Chef's dinner and thought it was really worth it ,had thought it was expensive but it turned out to be the best value ever.Would recommend it to everyone. Can't wait to go on the Diamond Princess again !
Aft cabins has the best view of the wake , spent many hours just watching the back of the ship.
Spent 5 days in Bangkok before cruise , had a great time .Make sure that you allow the extra time to see out of the middle of Bangkok ,the country side is incredible.
