PRINCESS Cruises’ Di­a­mond Princess is one of the big­gest cruise ships to reg­u­larly visit Aus­tralia.

At al­most 300 me­tres in length and and car­ry­ing more than 2500 pas­sen­gers, the Di­a­mond Princess has 14 decks, six restau­rants, a dozen bars, gi­ant out­door video screen and many more out­stand­ing fa­cil­i­ties.

There is plenty to do on­board, with a large casino, a two-level show lounge fea­tur­ing a nine-piece or­ches­tra and Broad­way-style mu­si­cals, plus an ex­pan­sive spa area with gym­na­sium and body pam­per­ing treat­ments.

A wide range of hosted ac­tiv­i­ties are also pro­vided through­out the day.

Cruise ship din­ing has evolved from be­ing a for­mal oc­ca­sion to a more ca­sual ex­pe­ri­ence and Princess Cruises per­sonal choice din­ing of­fers guests the op­por­tu­nity to dine in the main restau­rants at any­time of their choos­ing from 5.30pm to 10pm.

For late night snacks, or even break­fast in bed, 24-hour room ser­vice is in­cluded.

Af­ter op­er­at­ing a se­ries of Aus­tralia and New Zealand cruises, the Di­a­mond Princess re­lo­cates to Asia via a 20-night cruise from Syd­ney to Bangkok, vis­it­ing Mel­bourne, Ho­bart, Ade­laide, Fre­man­tle, Ger­ald­ton, Sin­ga­pore, Ho Chi Minh City, Viet­nam and Si­hanoukville, Cam­bo­dia.
