Why choose Diamond Princess?

The Diamond Princess impressed the industry when she was launched in 2004, and she continues to wow her guests today, with Princess cruises focused on keeping her up to date with the latest trends. Your time spent aboard the Diamond Princess can be as active or relaxed as you choose. The Personal Choice Dining programme means that if traditional service isn’t for you, you can dine where you want, when you want instead.

Sailing some of the most intriguing destinations in the business, the Diamond Princess is a great option for those looking for an alternative to traditional cruise holidays.

Destination and Itineraries

The Diamond Princess sails a range of unusual itineraries, which set it apart from the classic cruise experience. Choose from experiencing a taste of life Down Under with an Australia and New Zealand cruise, or sample the wonders of the Orient with a tour of Asia. Alternatively, the breathtaking majesty of the Alaskan fjords awaits you on a USA Cruise.

One of the most fascinating itineraries is the once-in-a-lifetime 31-day Australia, New Zealand and Asia Grand Adventure cruise, which takes in some of the world’s most exciting cityscapes, sailing from Auckland to Singapore. Hobart, Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh City are just a few of the amazing ports of call you will discover along the way.

The Diamond Princess offers the classic cruise experience with a flexible twist, to bring cruise holidays well into the 21st century - the perfect choice for those wanting to cruise to far-flung, exotic destinations across the globe.

The Diamond Princess is a true floating resort, equipped with all of the facilities that you would find in most top holiday destinations. From fitness suites, spa areas and fine restaurants, to swimming pools, shops and boutiques, the Diamond caters to its passengers every demand during their time onboard. Flexibility is key to the experience onboard the Diamond Princes. Once onboard, you can be educated, entertained, exercised, inspired or serenaded - depending on how you feel. By daytime, those who like to keep active will delight in the state of the art ‘swim-against-the-current’ lap pool, modern fitness suite and classes. On the other hand, if you prefer more gentle exercise, the nine-hole golf course and shuffleboard courts will be perfect for you. And you can give your mind a workout with the Diamond Princess’s enrichment programme. The ship offers a range of lectures, art exhibits and classes taught by local experts, in addition to a quiet library and reading room area. On the other hand, if you just want to relax and unwind during your cruise getaway, the Diamond’s extensive pool complex and large solarium provides ample space to catch a few rays and recharge between destinations. And when darkness falls, the ship offers all of the entertainment you would expect from a top cruise liner – choose from theatrical shows, to intimate live performances, chic bars, pumping nightclubs and even an onboard casino to keep yourself busy during the twilight hours.

There are a particularly large number of staterooms with balconies available aboard the Diamond Princess, which means that even if you haven’t got the largest budget, you can still enjoy panoramic ocean views in a private setting. The Diamond Princess is also a great option for family cruises, with family suites offering interconnected rooms that provide mums and dads with a little privacy, secure in the knowledge that the kids are just across the living room. The spacious balcony is also a great space to enjoy some family time in a more secluded environment.

The Diamond Princess allows you to dine in a manner that suits your schedule, rather than imposing a restrictive timetable upon your day. However, if you prefer the traditional formal cruise dining experience, the silver service in the ship’s international dining room is second to none. If you like to try out different cuisines from around the world, the ship has plenty of speciality restaurants to choose from, including the Italian Sabatini’s and meat-lover’s favourite Sterling Steakhouse. More casual options range from the poolside pizzeria to the Horizon Court buffet.
