And now is the time to book as nothing compares to the celebrations of Japan. Spirited. Imaginative. Vibrant. Summer is hanabi or "fire flower" season, and the festivals are in full bloom. From the ship, guests can watch more than 10,000 fireworks light up the sky during the Kumano Hanabi Taikai Fireworks Festival. A late night departure from Aomori lets our guests enjoy more of the Aomori Nebuta Festival, a colorful procession of float figures, music and dancers. We have carefully crafted our itineraries to enjoy these Festivals and more!

Built in Japan, the ship, Diamond Princess, expertly navigates the region with features created just for Japan balanced with appeal for guests from across the globe. The new multi-million dollar Izumi Japanese Bath, the largest of its kind at sea. The Kai Sushi restaurant with made-to-order sushi. A robust selection of Japanese sake. An alternating noodle station serving ramen, soba and udon. That's only the beginning. Onboard, go stargazing on the top deck, and explore Japan and more through Discovery at Sea. Join in on our Festivals of the World, a lively celebration of culture. Taste the fresh culinary offerings of renowned Chef Curtis Stone. And come back inspired, invigorated... new!
