FOL­LOW­ING the suc­cess­ful and pop­u­lar home­port­ing sea­sons, Princess Cruises will launch its third sea­son in Sin­ga­pore with Di­a­mond Princess from Nov 29 this year to March 16 next year.

There will be 10 sail­ings last­ing be­tween three and nine nights, as well as 14 voy­ages last­ing be­tween 10 and 17 nights.

Guests can look for­ward to a va­ri­ety of ex­ist­ing South- East Asia des­ti­na­tions such as Bali, Lom­bok and Koh Sa­mui, as well as a maiden call at Kota Kinabalu for this sea­son.

Shore ex­cur­sions will bring guests up close and per­sonal with ex­otic, off- the- beat­en­track des­ti­na­tions across South- East Asia.

Di­a­mond Princess is one- of- a- kind as the ship pro­vides unique Ja­panese- themed fa­cil­i­ties for guests to have a taste of Ja­panese cul­ture without set­ting foot in the coun­try.

The Izumi Ja­panese Bath is the largest Ja­panese bath at sea in the world, fea­tur­ing two in­door ar­eas and one out­door hy­drother­apy pool, de­signed af­ter the fa­mous tra­di­tional pub­lic baths of Ja­pan.

Guests can un­wind in one of the four heated whirlpools, or re­lieve the ten­sion in their neck and shoul­ders as the pres­sure of the wa­ter­falls works its magic.

Guests can also en­joy the hy­drother­apy pool and chaise lounges in the uni­sex out­door sec­tion with their loved ones.

There is also the Kai Sushi Bar, a spe­cialty restau­rant on Di­a­mond Princess of­fer­ing Ja­panese del­i­ca­cies.

A trip with Di­a­mond Princess prom­ises to be en­ter­tain­ing for ev­ery­one in the fam­ily.

In ad­di­tion to “Movies Un­der the Stars”, the ex­ten­sive range of vi­brant ac­tiv­i­ties avail­able on board in­clude trivia games, art auc­tions, pro­duc­tion shows, star- gazing, dance par­ties, as well as classes for the ukulele, line- dance, ball­room dance and Zumba work­outs.

Guests who sail with Di­a­mond Princess this up­com­ing sea­son can look for­ward to a new show, Bravo.

It prom­ises to be an en­ter­tain­ing per­for­mance of light opera and mu­si­cal songs set on the el­e­gant stage at Princess Theater.

Guests will be ser­e­naded by in­ter­na­tional vo­cal tal­ents per­form­ing hits such as I Could Have Danced All Night, I Dreamed A Dream and Sky­fall, and ac­com­pa­nied by Princess Cruises’ house or­ches­tra fea­tur­ing a string quar­tet.

The show, which had a pop­u­lar de­but on the new­est ship Re­gal Princess in 2014, will be brought to South- East Asia for the first time dur­ing the Sin­ga­porean Home­port sea­son on Di­a­mond Princess.

The pro­duc­tion cast of 15 dancers and singers will ser­e­nade and cap­ture the hearts of the­atre- loving guests in the re­gion.

Din­ing on board Princess Cruises is a joy­ful cel­e­bra­tion and the ship is a foodie’s par­adise.
