The link above will take you to the review of the Diamond Princess that I did for CruiseMates. There's also feature article I wrote about the new restaurant choices which should be coming along on the home page somewhere along the line.
I was happy to see you mention the dim sum appetizer in the Pacific Moon -- I ordered a second 'cause it was so good. (But what about those fantastic onion rings in the Sterlinghouse -- can't wait to have those again in October!)
And, on second thought, I can see your point about the African casino ... it was novel but the decor fell a little short.
Hope they work out the Horizon Court setup soon. :-) I always feel like human pinball in the setup, as it is, but like that you don't have to wait behind a slower person. I guess that will be a "we'll see"

Thank you so much for your informative review - my husband & I are sailing from Vancouver this month to wind up in LA and are really looking forward to the trip -- it looks like a great repositioning itinerary (but I'm wonderding if she'll fit under the Golden Gate for our San Francisco stop?) -- we were on the Star last October and had a great experience.
Can't wait to see the new and improved Skywalker's -- Club Fusion sounds equally fabulous. . .after reading your review I'm really glad we're staying on in LA for the first Mexico run -- I'm gonna need at least 12 days to get the feel for this ship!
Thanks to Harry for the "heads up" on the onion rings
Christy: We loved both Skywalker's and Club Fusion! Without realizing it...we spent much of our recent cruise at both venues! Overall, both great......esp Skywalkers for a view during the day....and Club Fusions ALWAYS seemed to have the fun stuff at night! You'll have a great cruise....enjoy! Martha
