Princess Cruises' newly announced 2023 cruises and cruise-tours in Japan mark the line's 10th year sailing from Yokohama (Tokyo) and Kobe.

A multitude of itineraries spanning from the southern tropical islands of Okinawa to the northernmost island of Hokkaido offer the opportunity to discover the country's culture, history, cuisine and natural wonders.

Fifty-seven cruise departures

Japan-built Diamond Princess returns for the summer and fall of 2023. The ship is scheduled to call at 38 destinations in four countries on 43 unique itineraries. The 57 departures range from five to 19 days.

Largest Japanese bath at sea

Diamond Princess provides regionally infused cuisine and entertainment as well as the largest open-air Japanese bath at sea. This 8,800-square-foot bath and garden complex offers indoor and outdoor Japanese bathing experiences including steam rooms, saunas and hot tubs with panoramic ocean views.

The ship also offers Kai Sushi, an authentic sushi bar, and traditional music and entertainment.

Thirteen- and 14-day 'Highlights of Japan' cruise-tours pair a multiple-night land tour with the cruise, for more time to experience Tokyo and Kyoto.
