Princess Cruises Extends 2025-26 Japan & Southeast Asia Season

Princess Cruises has announced that Diamond Princess will be returning to the Land of the Rising Sun for an expanded Japan and Southeast Asia 2025-26 cruise season.

The expanded Japan season will showcase the region’s breathtaking fall foliage, Mt. Fuji, Kyoto, and more. From ancient temples and castles, to bustling markets and beautiful gardens, Diamond Princess guests will experience the best of Japan with a selection of 11 new voyages on offer: ranging from nine to 22 days, visiting 25 destinations across the region.

Built in Japan, Diamond Princess offers a totally unique cruise experience tailored to the region, featuring authentic cuisine at Kai Sushi; Japanese-inspired cocktails by mixologist Rob Floyd; a traditional Izumi bath; plus folkloric shows, regional entertainment, and Japanese holiday celebrations.

“We truly make it easy to travel to Japan and Southeast Asia on our Diamond Princess Love Boat to experience these amazing destinations. For our fall 2025 through winter 2026 season, we’re thrilled to expand our Japan cruises from Tokyo (Yokohama) during the beautiful fall foliage season and continue to Singapore to highlight the best of Southeast Asia. Plus, our guests only need to unpack once to experience these storied countries while enjoying vibrant shore excursions and our regional culinary and entertainment offerings onboard.”

Terry Thornton, Chief Commercial Officer for Princess Cruises
