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.
