Grandiose itineraries like Southeast Asia, Alaska and Australia can be enjoyed on Diamond Princess, which debuted in 2004, holding almost 2700 passengers.

She is the sister ship of Sapphire Princess, and both escape to these enviously exotic and spellbinding destinations. The ship incorporates all the wonderful onboard features expected from Princess Cruises such as Movies Under the Stars, so in between viewing the glaciers of Alaska or the temples of Taiwan, you can be sure the Princess motto of “escape completely” will be relevant at every step of your journey.

Diamond Princess caters to everyone; whether you like getting suited and booted with traditional, specialty dining or enjoy flexibility with anytime and casual dining options.

Through the day, enjoy the culinary delights of Horizon Court buffet; a central starting point for many people looking for a hearty breakfast. Poolside favourites such as burgers, pizza and hotdogs can be enjoyed in Prego Pizzeria and Trident Grill. And why not treat yourself or the kids to the complimentary all you can scoop ice cream Sundae for dessert?

At night, the selection isn’t limited to just one or two restaurants. Choose between four anytime dining options, such as the Savoy Dining Room, or the traditional International Dining Room – these are perfect options for those who desire extra attentive service and dinner with new friends.

Alternatively, treat yourself to some of the extra-special, exquisitely executed cuisine that can be found at Sabatini’s Italian restaurant, the Sterling Steakhouse, or Kai Sushi. For those wanting to go the extra mile, enquire about the super-exclusive Ultimate Balcony Dining experience.

Along with all this, paninis and pastries will be available 24-7, and can be brought straight to your room by the 24-hour room service that is provided.

Movies in the moonlight, exhilarating shows and nightclub performances. Diamond Princess has it all.

Movies Under the Stars is the pioneering Princess feature allowing guests to watch blockbuster movies outside on a huge LED screen. At night, waiters bring you popcorn and blankets, making sure it’s a snug, bijou delight.

The whole family will be kept entertained at one of Princess Theatre’s impressive shows, whilst Explorer’s Lounge, Skywalker’s and Club Fusion will attract those on holiday to have fun all night long. The Casino is just around the corner as well if you are feeling lucky.

Along with this, there is a selection of lounges to wind down in, including Churchill’s Lounge, which is a designated smoking area.

On board activities include Photoshop, salsa and ceramic classes, so you can be sure that enriching opportunities will always be available if you are in the mood for learning a new skill.
