By  |  0 Comments

Passengers may enjoy the Princess Cruises experience this November as the Diamond Princess home-ports this November.

Renowned for their innovative design and wide array of dining and entertainment facilities as well as amenities, global cruise and tour company, Princess Cruises today operates a fleet of 18 modern ships. Having recently concluded its second season in Singapore with the Sapphire Princess, the line has also announced that Diamond Princess will begin her first Singapore season this coming November.

With the cruising industry growing quickly in Asia, Singapore is at the epicentre of this growth, leading the Southeast Asia region with a majority (60 percent) of the economic impact from the cruise industry. As the principal turnaround port, Singapore also accounted for 68 percent of total turnaround passenger visit days in Southeast Asia last year (Business Research and Economic Advisors, 2014).

To better serve Singaporean and Southeast Asian guests, Diamond Princess will have multi-lingual crew members on-board throughout its homeport season from Singapore. Local food has also been added to dining room menus to complement the line’s international offerings.
