 Diamond Princess

Diamond Princess is the 5th in a series of ships that were once the largest in the world. Diamond Princess is the first Princess ship to be built in a Japanese shipyard (the Saphire Princess will launch in 2005) and she takes her place with the other 4 Grand Class ships. One unique thing about the Diamond Princess is that she is lacking the familiar "wing or spoiler" that are featured on the first four Grand Class ships.
