Diamond Princess Review


Pros and Cons

Pros: the higher passenger-to-space ratio of these two ships offers a less crowded feel than most of the Princess fleet; closets opposite the bathroom leave cabin entrances unobstructed by multiple doors; the Churchill Lounge is a popular spot for smokers, leaving other public rooms almost smoke free.

Cons: the four intimate open seating dining rooms are smaller than on other Princess ships and can fill up fast; there is a charge for specialty coffee drinks and premium ice cream; to walk all around the ship on promenade deck you’ll have to negotiate a flight of stairs.
