Diamond Princess Cruise Review by Fortunatefew
- Sail Date: December 2018
- Destination: Asia
- Cabin Type: Balcony
Some of the ports were really disappointing, particularly Phuket.
Our cabin was dated and needed refurbishing, the carpet was very worn. Typical Princess layout in the atrium. The staff and service was excellent and no complaints with the buffet food in the Horizon although many passengers did not wash their hands as they should when entering. We were around the pool every day trying to find a lounger that offered shade, it would be good if they could provide more shade. People still reserve loungers for hours even though they are requested not to. To save washing and continual re stocking of pool towels, passengers should be asked to take just one towel instead of 2-4 each.
The captain of this ship and cruise should be applauded, he was a very caring and thoughtful person, went over and beyond with explanations, information apologies and as another passenger said - a true gentleman.
The cruise was okay, we wouldn't do a similar itinerary again.
