The Good: The itinerary for this cruise was very interesting and took us to some locations not on the usual tour routes for Japan and Taiwan. Even though I had to pay a 100% supplement as a solo cruiser, the price was still fairly ... Read more

Overall we enjoyed the cruise but there were a few things that tainted our holiday. Day one: Don't take duty free onboard to collect on disembarkation if the cruise hasn't sailed. They will and do tip it out! Once the ship has set sail ... Read more
