Diamond Princess sets sail to South America and Antarctica

Princess Cruises has announced Diamond Princess will sail to South America and Antarctica in fall 2021 and spring 2022. She will replace Sapphire Princess on the same deployment from December through March.

During her maiden season in South America and Antarctica Diamond Princess will offer varying itineraries with highlights including the Andes, Antarctica, Cape Horn and the Strait of Magellan.

In addition, Diamond Princess will sail on two new Pacific Crossings to and from Asia in fall 2021 and spring 2022 and sail the North Pacific Ocean with either Southeast Asia and Hawaii or Hawaii and Japan. These sailings are between Los Angeles and either Singapore or Yokohama (Tokyo).

As a result of this change, three Sapphire Princess Baja Peninsula & Sea of Cortez cruises and three Hawaiian Islands cruises in fall 2021 and spring 2022 will be cancelled.

What’s on board?

Diamond Princess is a treasure trove of exceptional delights waiting to be discovered. Guests can enjoy freshly prepared sashimi in Kai Sushi, watch street performers in the dazzling Atrium, or take in a lavish production show in the ship’s state-of-the-art theater. And for a unique treat guests can visit the Izumi Japanese Bath, the largest of its kind at sea.

Izumi, modeled after a traditional Japanese bath or “onsen” features indoor and outdoor Japanese bathing experiences, including steam rooms, saunas, and hot tubs with spectacular ocean views. Exclusively on Diamond Princess, it is the largest Japanese bath of its kind at sea and offers guests a chance to experience a little of a popular Japanese pastime. Men and women have separate facilities, except for one outdoor hot tub where suits are required.

Diamond Princess also features a Japanese restaurant called Kai Sushi where fresh Japanese seafood dishes are served.
