The Diamond has lost her lustre!

The cruise was chosen so we could see most of Japan with the convenience of a cruise...perhaps we would have been better off using the rail system itself. Getting to our hotel from Haneda easily accomplished by ...

Great Itinerary, Poor Ship

Itinerary was what attracted us and we were happy with each destination except for the Mt. Fuji tour which only took us to the gift shop on Mt. Fuji rather than further up the mountain. The ship is dated and could ...

Excellent Itinerary but Tired Ship

We booked the nine day version of this cruise as a complement to a land tour of Japan. In most respects, it met our expectations, but there were definitely some aspects that were disappointing. This ...

I’m Missing P&O

You would think that a ship updated solely for the Japan market would do Japanese-related things (restaurants, food and menu, ports of call) well. No such luck. Everything was poorly done - even the extra charge ...

Good Cruise but HAL is Not What It Used to Be

We selected this cruise because we had never been to Japan. We typically cruise with Holland America but have found on our last couple of cruises that their standards are starting to slip. The quality of the food ...

Best cruise experience

We were treated like a "PRINCESS" on this cruise. Choosing Diamond Princess was the best. From the time of Embarkation everything is so well organized. The luggage and checking in, the crews are welcoming. ...

Comfortable Cabin & Good Food

We opted for this one as the price was a little bit down, it hit some new ports for us, and we were able to link up with our son at the Kobe port. While the ship is not new and shows its age here and there, we had ...

A 5 day cruise round trip from Yokohama turned into a 6 day cruise with a 48 hour instead of the planned 6 hour stop over in Busan South Korea. This was due to Typhoon Talem. But we couldnt have been happier or more ...

Some HA issues on this one.

Our main point in the cruise was to see more of Japan than just Tokyo. There were some really good parts of the cruise--the festival at Amori was impressive. There were also great events that Princess never ...
