We have just got off the Diamond after 22 days Sydney to Tokyo. We have traveled on her a couple of times previously and we must say that all in all it was a very good experience. The service was fantastic throughout the ship from the waiting staff to the room steward all done professionally and with a smile at all times. The staff in the skywalkers bar for elite drinks remembered our drinks after the first night and our names after the 2 nd night and always greeted us with a warm smile and genuine service. The only speciality restaurant we tried was the Italian which was good food and service but lacked intimacy with the bright lighting and the Japanese restaurant had no appeal with the harsh fluorescent lighting and being completely empty every night didn’t inspire us to try it. Entertainment was excellent and lots of activities during the day. For a big ship it was easy to get around but did feel a little overcrowded at times as it was sold out

Cabin Review

Premium Mini-Suite with Balcony
Cabin M1 E727
Emerald deck mini suite at rear of ship 3 cabins from end was very quiet,in good order and totally covered balcony which we loved and chose specifically because it is private without all the cabins above looking down on you unlike the mini suites on deck 9 which we had previously
Dolphin Deck Inside Cabins, Balcony Cabins, Suite Cabins
