Finding a Quiet Place on the Diamond Princess
The Diamond Princess features workshops,shows and games to keep you occupied. -But, if what you really want is a place to just relax onboard the Diamond, we suggest the Lotus Spa, the Library, and the Writing Room. Usually before 9:00 AM, most of the public areas (save the pool areas) are not crowded. Also, keep in mind the ship pretty much empties out when it is in a port of call. Plus, when the ship is in port, is the time to take advantage of discounts at the Spa and get some serious rest and relaxation. If you are looking for quiet onboard the ship, port days are a great time to be onboard the Diamond Princess.
