  3. Diamond Princess
We chose this cruise based on the amazing time we had previously cruising Diamond Princess from Singapore. This cruise left from Sydney and arrived in Tokyo and had heaps of sea days to really enjoy the boat. The kids had a blast in the kids club. In the fitness club we experienced a grumpy lady who didn't think my son should be using the equipment even though he was accompanied by myself. The staff soon set her straight but I felt embarrassed. Only issue on board was the on demand TV didn't work for the first few days but they got it fixed eventually and provided everyone with $50OBC. We can't wait to cruise on Diamond Princess again! Ports were: Darwin: where we pre booked a crocodile jumping tour. Kota Kinabalu: we took the ships tour of the zoo, don't bother with this one. Ho Chi Minh: we took a tour with water buffalo tours highly recommended. Nha Trang: we went to Vin Pearl Land, this was great with the kids as all rides were included. Hong Kong: we did a ship tour that we didn't enjoy much due to being taken to a jewelry factory which didn't show any jewelry making Osaka: we visited Osaka Castle on our own and went on ferris wheel. Shimizu: we visited the ropeway and went shopping Tokyo: sad last day

What an amazing relocation cruise
