This was my 25th Princess cruise and 1st one to Asia. This time I was traveling solo. I booked a 2 night pre-cruise package in Osaka. The flight on Cathay Pacific through Honk Kong was uneventful. Japanese emigration was quick and my ... Read more

After being on over 30 cruises, this had to be in the top 2-3. It started off really bad when Princess didn't have any shuttle service at the airport with around 80 people there wondering what to do now. Somehow, someone procured busses ... Read more

I am surprised at the discontent expressed by people in their reviews which I have just read. I have been on four other Princess cruises and my friend I travel with seven. We found this to be an excellent cruise as per usual with ... Read more

Cruise review Having read another review of the same cruise, it appears as though things didn't go quite as well with us. This is fourth Princess cruise, having previously cruised the Baltic, Eastern Mediterranean and Alaska. We ... Read more

Our cruise was around Honshu Island, Kobe to Kobe. Our enjoyment of cruising around Japan is based on our visiting locations we would not likely visit otherwise, the out of the way ports that are not standard tourist destinations. This ... Read more

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
