As one of only two Princess Cruises cruise ships built in Japan, it’s not surprising this exotic gem can often be found sailing to the most intriguing vacation destinations abroad. Great-tasting cuisine can be found throughout the cruise ship, including at our popular Italian restaurant, Sabatini’s, where freshly prepared pasta creations reign supreme. In the elegant dining rooms, you’ll find sommeliers to help you enhance your meal with paired wines. Poolside, our hand-tossed pizza is always served to you just out of the oven. And, as an added bonus, both Movies Under the Stars and The Sanctuary, a tranquil haven exclusively for adults, have recently been added to Diamond Princess!

Ship Facts

With Princess, young kids and teens have their own kind of fun – and their own place to hang out. Our youth and teen centers are fully equipped with everything from the latest video games and movies, to arts and crafts, fooseball tables, board games and jukeboxes. And for the littlest ones, activities like kids’ karaoke, pizza parties, pajama nights and more.

Kids & Teens

This ship’s activities run the age-appropriate gamut for those under 18 – from Princess Pelicans (ages 3 to 7), and Shockwaves (ages 8-12), to Remix (ages 13-17).
