We loved the Diamond. (Note the past tense.) We have sailed on her many times and she was our favorite ship. Then Radisson, in their infinate wisdom, fired the female wait staff in the dinning room and replaced them with filapinos (at a lower cost). It's not that the new waiters are bad, (they were very slow, however) but they don't have the charm and mixing ability that the girls had. Quite honestly, the experience in the dinning room was the best part of a cruise on the Diamond. Now that's gone and it's just another small cruise ship.
