This is our third cruise on the Diamond Princess from Sydney to Yokohama.
Dining : We were on the Sapphire Princess in February and the food in the Horizon and main dining room are much much better than Diamond Princess as the menu are all the same on the Princess to keep their cost down. Why is it on the Diamond princess is not up to the standard on the Sapphire. Sushi and Barramundi was nice on the Sapphire Princess but not on the Diamond Princess.
Entertainment : We love ballroom dancing but there was no prerecorded music in the Club Fusion according to the patter scheduled. When I made the complaint to the entertainment manager I found her to be impolite. When they put on the ballroom hour the production manger plays 85% latin and samba and when I spoke to him about the imbalance of the music, I considered he is not very friendly or helpful. Myself got the flu from a fellow passenger and we were confined to our cabin for the second leg of the cruise (Yokohama back to back). The last evening we tried to celebrate my wife's birthday. On the patter 6 pm ballroom hour at Explorer. But the retractable stage was set up so there was no dance floor to dance.
