  3. Diamond Princess
We went on this cruise because we wanted to join our friends and see New Zealand and Australia. There were too many (five) days at sea and not enough things to do that interested my husband and I during the day. Glad we had a balcony because it was difficult to find a place to sit in the public areas when at sea. This will be the last large ship we will go on because there are too many people (3000). Would rather go on a cruise that includes everything instead of paying extra for beverages, internet, shore excursions. Suppose the base price appeals to more people and families. The Diamond Princess needs an update. Food was ok and service was fast and friendly. We had no trouble with making dinner reservations in the different dining rooms. The entertainment was average at best. Getting on and off the ship was efficient.

The Fiordland National Park was worth going on this cruise

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BC
Cabin had plenty of storage place and having the balcony was wonderful. The TV cut out too much.
