What to do on Diamond Princess Cruise – Unwind at Izumi Japanese Bath, Outdoor Pools, Theatre Performances, Comfy Lounges & Casual Diners
Voted as the Best International Ship in Japan by Cruise Magazine Reader’s Poll, Diamond Princess cruise brings a series of fun and entertainment to guests on-board. From theatre performances by broadway-legend Stephen Schwartz, disco balls, luxurious lounges and casino to delightful meals at Kai Sushi and Sterling Steakhouse, relaxing body-pampering sessions and poolside activities, there is simply something to occupy everyone with.
Built in 2004, Diamond Princess can carry up to 2670 passengers and has been sailing to various parts of the world including Carribean, Alaska, Europe, Hawaii and Asia.
Bars and Entertainment
The night is always young when you are on the cruise. There are just about five lounges you might want to dive straight into. Whether you are basking under the night sky at Skywalkers or having a classic martini at Crooners Martini Bar, don’t forget to check out the Princess Theater for some grand performances (e.g. Bravo) too.
Take a dip in Diamond Princess’ four pools, located indoors and outdoors. Surely the hot weather calls for a cooling sport or a good suntan.
As night falls, gaze towards the large amphitheatre situated above the open-air pool for the screening of exciting films, concerts and live games such as live soccer matches.
Spa and Massages
Pamper yourself from head to toe at The Sanctuary and, the exclusive IZUMI Japanese Bath that comes with saunas, steam room and hot tubs overlooking the pristine ocean.
It is almost impossible to be hungry on a cruise that offers a wide range of cuisine feeding you at different timing of the day. Besides the buffet, take some time to indulge in sushi and sashimi at Kai Sushi, handmade pasta at Sabatini’s Trattoria and premium steaks at Sterling Steakhouse too.
There are different types of room to choose from, starting with the most affordable option, Interior, to Oceanview, Balcony and Suites (Suite, Club Class and Mini-suite) with a view.
The start of a new journey is celebrated with the Kagamibiraki – a special sake barrel-breaking ritual which is symbolic of good luck and a good start. Some of the guests will also get to sample a small glass of sake from the ritual.
