Default Any reviews of the Diamond Princess

I'm booked on the Diamond Princess for June 12th to Alaska. I know that right now the ship's not sailing to Alaska, but would still like an overall review of the ship and your experience. Thanks!

Hi...we haven't sailed aboard her yet, but Diamond Princess is a Grand-class ship and nearly identical to Grand, Golden Princess. I suggest you see these reviews.

There's quite a few of us that sailed on the Diamond inaugural that are posting on cruisecritic.com. You might want to go there under BOARDS, then under PRINCESS, then scroll down and read the threads to find out lots about the ship, PC dining, etc.

Perhaps Anne is correct, but I disagree with the statement that Diamond is "nearly identical" to the Grand class ships.

I believe that there are significant differences, including gross tonage, number of passengers, restaurants (4 seperate PC free restaurants on Diamond), skywalkers, club fusion etc.

Shouldn't the Diamond, Caribbean and Saphire all be considered "Diamond" class?

Thanks, Hobie

There are only 2 Diamond Class ships...Diamond and Saphire.
The Caribbean Princess is a Bigger Grand Class ship 116.000 tons.

Michael, thanks for the clarification.
They are definitly "Diamond class" and not "Grand class". I guess that Caribbean Princess is "Caribbean class"!

Also have seen many conflicting bits of info regarding the size of the Diamond class ships. On the Princess website it says both 113,00 tons and 116,00. Not really sure what size it is.

Where did you confirm this information? Did you notice that the Princess website states 2 different sizes, 113 and 116 for this ship?
