Rough Crossing but Great Cruise

This cruise was a repositioning cruise to Asia after completing its Alaska cruising season. We boarded in Whittier and it only took minutes to get through the boarding process which was quite amazing. I later learned that 1,500 passengers had stayed on the ship and would continue on to Asia with us, therefore, not so many people trying to get on at once. We went directly to our room, which was the ...

We joined the Diamond on a wet day after a comfortable bus trip from Anchorage to Whittier. Embarkation services were excellent with time from bus drop off to cabin being 25 minutes. We are Platinum Princess members, but the service was excellent. We checked in at 2.10PM , probably after the initial rush. Cabin 422 ( a suite) was spotless on arrival and we were greeted by our Steward and offered ...

We enjoyed this cruise greatly. The Diamond Princess staff was excellent and the room steward was the best we've had in 10 cruises we've taken. It stormed the whole time we crossed the Bering Sea with high seas and high winds for 5 days. The ship was amazing in that it was fairly stable the whole time and I never lurched into a wall while walking which we have done on cruises venues that included ...

This was our second cruise on Princess, and better than our first on the Pacific (though the Amazon itinerary was great!). Though the Diamond hadn't been refurbished in dry dock, we enjoyed the ship. Spacious, and always a place to hole up and read and relax! We stayed in a Penthouse Suite, mid ship. The service and amenities were fantastic. Loved the suite life! Overnight stay at the Captain ...

My wife and I are frequent and experienced cruisers. As such, while we were somewhat satisfied with our Diamond Princess cruise experience, there are certain factors that should receive Princess attention. The positives first: The ship is wonderful: clean, obviously well maintained and efficiently operated (at least from the passengers point of view). Its layout is convenient and provides ...

I am going to try and keep this short and sweet so here goes. I was on this cruise from Whittier to Tinjin China with my wife. We have been on three other cruises (2 with Celebrity and one on NCL). In short the trip was nice but as you might imagine there were some issues that did come up. We arrived in Anchorage two days before the cruise was to start and stayed at the Comfort Inn next to ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We embarked on the Diamond Princess in Whittier, Alaska and sailed through Asia, ending in Bangkok, Thailand. The itinerary was wonderful and most of the shore excursions were expensive but pretty good. We particularly liked the "home visit" excursions, where we had a chance to meet the local people. The ship was a little large for our liking and it seemed to be too large for the staff as well. ...
