    Great-tasting food is one of this ship’s highlights, offering the 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 serene retreat exclusively for adults, have recently been added to Diamond Princess.

    Not much response at the moment Simon.

    I can offer you a picture taken at Kanchanaburi - the town of The Bridge over the River Kwai...



    Fascinating place, I have visited it many times. About a couple of hours drive from Bangkok and well worth the journey.
