The dining options onboard the Diamond Princess are in a word, impressive. The options are broad, with cruisers able to choose from traditional, anytime, specialty and casual dining.

Eat at the time of your choice in the Pacific Moon Dining Room, Sante Fe Dining Room, Savoy Dining Room and Vivaldi Room, where you can enjoy flexibility in dining times, while also enjoying the delicious food on offer at the traditional dining rooms.

Those looking for something more alternative can check out the specialty restaurants onboard. Sabatini's, Sterling Steakhouse and the Ultimate Balcony Dining are run by fantastic chefs whose sole purpose onboard the Diamond Princess is to impress the guests.

Eat on the run and pay a visit to places like the Horizon Court buffet, Sundaes ice cream bar and Prego Pizzeria. Avoid the usual dining time crowds and relax with some take-away by the pool.


Boasting some of the most talented musicians, singers and dancers at sea, the Diamond Princess knows how to entertain its guests.

See live shows in the Princess Theater or enjoy a Movie Under the Stars. Play a game of poker at the Grand Casino, dance the night away at the Skywalkers Nightclub or Explorers Lounge or simply relax with friends and drinks in the Wheelhouse Bar or Wake View Bar.



A range of youth and teen programs are available on the Diamond Princess, ensuring everyone is kept amused and entertained.

Princess Pelicans is perfect for children aged 3 to 7 years and offers arts and crafts, backstage tours, scavenger hunts, talent shows and a disco night. Shockwaves attracts children aged 8 to 12 years and offers the same activities.

Cruisers aged between 13 and 17 can take part in Remix; a great program that offers sports competitions, late night movies, Karaoke, PlayStation 2, DJ workshops and Hip-Hop dance classes.
