Princess Ship Based In Tokyo During Olympics Undergoes Multi-Million Pound Refit

Princess Cruises’ 2,670-guest ship, Diamond Princess, has just received a multi-million pound two-week refit.

The voyages will take Princess guests to sites renowned for features and events like spring flowers, summer festivals and fall foliage.

The ship now includes enhanced entertainment capabilities and an upgraded spa and gym.

The Refit Includes:

-Improved surround sound digital audio on the ‘Movies Under The Stars’ outdoor screen

-Audio enhancements in the Princess Theatre, Explorers Lounge and Club Fusion to ensure guests hear the best of live productions shows and guest entertainers

-Updated fitness equipment in the onboard gym, and upgrades to the spa salon and treatments rooms

The Above New Enhancements Will Compliment the Following Recent Additions to the Ship:

-A Princess luxury bed in every stateroom exclusively created for the line in collaboration with Dr. Michael Breus, a legitimate sleep expert.

It features fine linens, enhanced mattress support and a king-size deluxe pillow available with feathers or an anti-allergy microfiber option

-A new main dining room wine list which has double the previous options and a range of bottles have been introduced from across the world including France, Italy, Australia, South America and the USA and include several wines that are biodynamic, organic or vegan

Diamond Princess is tailored for Japan cruising and means passengers can enjoy local experiences onboard, such as the Izumi Bath – the largest open-air Japanese bath and garden complex at sea – a sushi restaurant and traditional Japanese entertainment.

The refit was completed in Singapore and continues Princess’ ‘Come Back New Promise’ campaign with £330m being invested across the line’s fleet of 17 ships.

The line is offering a 9-day Circle Japan sailing on Diamond Princess, roundtrip from Tokyo. Departing September 9, 2019, ports of call include Ishinomaki, Hakodate, Maizuru, Busan, Kanmon Straits and Hiroshima. Princess prices start from £998 per person.
