The Diamond Princess is one of the most luxurious cruise ships in the region, on a voyage around the waters of East Asia during the summer months, and to the waters of Southeast Asian in the winter. The cruise ship has an impressive size with a width of 37.5 meters and a length of 288 meters, which is owned by the Princess Cruises in the US, and built by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries in Nagasaki, Japan. With its 12 decks, the Diamond Princess is like a large-scale five-star hotel. Many visitors also compare the cruise ship to a city on the sea.
