Princess Cruises has announced an extension of its itineraries in Japan for the 2025-2026 season, following a record-breaking number of U.S. visitors to Japan in 2023 and continued strong demand this year.

The Japan-built Diamond Princess will return with an expanded schedule, featuring Japan's fall foliage, Mt. Fuji, and Kyoto. The fall 2025 season will offer 11 voyages ranging from 9 to 22 days, visiting 25 destinations in Japan, Korea, and Taiwan. Highlights include:

  • 13-day Circle Japan Fall Foliage sailing during the peak autumn season.
  • 9-day Circle Japan voyage with stops in Nagasaki, Akita, and Sakaiminato.
  • 9-day Southern Islands departure to Okinawa and Ishigaki.
  • 10-day Kyushu & Korea cruise, including Hiroshima, Osaka (for Kyoto), and Shimizu (for Mt. Fuji).

Guests can combine select itineraries for an extended 40-day adventure. After the Japan season, Diamond Princess will sail to Singapore on a 12-day Southeast Asia & Japan cruise featuring Taipei (Keelung) and Hong Kong. This will precede 3 roundtrip Singapore sailings:
