This was a view of our cruise ship, the Diamond Princess, as she lay in port in Okinawa. This was taken from the bus window as we left for our tour. Our cabin was on the other side, up towards to front, so not visible from here. We were also up the top with our own personal balcony.
The Diamond Princess has room for 2,700 passengers, with 1,100 crew. She is 952 feet long, 205 feet high, and has 18 decks. There are five main dining rooms, a buffet, an Italian restaurant, a steakhouse, a burger grill, a pizzeria, a hamburger grill, an ice cream parlour, 6 theatres and lounges, 4 pools, a gym, and much more. Is it any wonder I like cruising?
