Diane Hoffmann (also known as Diamond Di)
Di worked as an Executive Assistant to several major companies (and National Laboratory) senior executives, organizing international travel, conferences and conventions all around the globe. She is originally from Chicago and now resides in Florida for 20+ years.
Since 2006, Diane has cruised Carnival Cruise Line almost 100 times. She knows everyone from Captains, Cruise Directors, Guest Services Managers etc. She now has approximately 150 cruises under her belt and also has reached “elite” status on Norwegian, Princess and Carnival and has cruised Celebrity, MSC amongst others. She also has a keen knowledge of the cruise lines and for the past 5 years has joined Norm in escorting tours.
Her philosophy is as follows - “As you step on board a ship, you can leave everything behind you and it’s time to live life to its fullest and to share cruise adventures with new found - soon to be life long friends!”
Her hobbies are travel, reading, stitching and photography.
Diane, thinking it would be fun to make her hobby her profession, decided in early 2017 to establish her own cruise agency - Diamond Di Discoveries, Inc., to allow her and Norman to create a cruise combination company that can both book cruises for groups and arrange on-board activities and shore excursions.
