Default Questions about the ship Diamond activities

Going to be on Diamond to AK for 28 days and I was wondering if anyone was on her recently and could answer a series of questions.

Do they have a ping pong table?
Do they setup a Wii system for bowling and such like other cruise lines?
What are usual open close times for Gym, Hot tub, mini-golf?
How many formal nights per 7 day cruise(and how formal just collared shirt(tie required?), jacket and slacks or tux)
How often do they play movies and things on the pool big screen, is it everyday? And do they have a bar open nearby for drinks or offer snacks?
Is the pool heated since we are headed to Alaska?

All I can think of atm, thanks!

Ping Pong I don't think so, Wii I don't think so, gym times... mini golf...don't know. Hot tub late nights, formal nights two out of seven. Movies under the stars I believe every night, bar nearby yes...I believe there is one heated pool. & yes I have sailed on the Diamond, have a great time on your cruise.

Just disembarked from the Diamond.
Yes, they have two Ping-Pong tables located on the upper deck of the Solarium.
No Wii system on the Diamond.
Gym: 7am to 11pm
Hot Tub: It varies, on rough sea days, they place a net over the top to stop passengers from using it. All other times its open.
Mini golf is located behind the MUTS...Movies Under The Stars screen.
It's always open.
2 formal nights on a 7-day cruise....most wear a suit, or tux, or jacket and tie. You will not be denied access to the dining if you don't wear a tie. A tie is small and easy to pack...I would bring one.
Movies are shown everyday. They also show concerts and sporting events.
There are two bars located at each end of the deck. You also have pizza, burgers, and ice-cream bar...and if you're really hungry, the Horizon Buffet is just past the Solarium.
All the pools are heated. Happy sailing!
