Japan is ready to welcome back the Diamond Princess, a cruise ship with a difference that features the largest open-air Japanese bath at sea – an 820sqm bath and garden complex, offering indoor and outdoor Japanese bathing experiences including steam rooms, saunas, and hot tubs with spectacular ocean vistas.

And that’s not all. Princess Cruises will showcase its Medallion Class for the first time when it returns to homeporting in Japan, starting 15 March 2023.

The Medallion enables everything from expedited, contactless boarding to locating friends and family anywhere on the ship where MedallionNet, claims to be the best WiFi at sea.

Japanese-built Diamond Princess will celebrate the 10th anniversary of sailing from Tokyo (Yokohama) and Kobe with a nine-day sailing roundtrip from Tokyo.

In keeping with the Japanese theme is Diamond’s Kai Sushi, an authentic sushi bar.

The ship – designed exclusively with the destination in mind – will call at 38 destinations in four countries on 43 itineraries and 57 departures, ranging from five to 19 days.

Princess offers 13- or 14-day Highlights of Japan cruise tours, featuring a multiple-night land tour combined with the cruise.
