Additional details

Sail Date: Mar 2013
Cabin: Ocean View (obstructed view)

We flew into Beijing on the morning of the cruise. We had spent several weeks in China previously. I had arranged a transfer for 12 cc members by Beijing Airport transfer to Tianjin. I had been assured that there would be plenty of room in the 22 seater bus for pax and luggage. We were packed in like sardines - why do some people take so much luggage?? The price was good but I would suggest that numbers be limited on future transfers.

No-one that I am aware of did a tour in Tianjin. It seemed like a very ordinary place to visit. Most had done tours to the Great Wall and other interesting places in Beijing.

Our first stop was in Seoul. We had booked 3 vans here - mainly vans of 8 pax. This was a fantastic tour and the guides were excellent. My contact was Rachel at Seoul City Tours rachel@seoulcitytour.net http://www.seoulcitytour.net/ We were met at the port and visited Blue House (Pass by ) - Gyeongbok Palace - Bukchon Hanok Village - Samcheongdong - Insadong - Cheongggyecheon Stream - Seoul N Tower before being taken back to the port. I can highly recommend this company. Cost was $81 per person without lunch.

Cabin Review

Ocean View (obstructed view)

Cabin E

Best kept secret on the ship. An E obstructed with no obstruction. Smaller cabin but well laid out which makes rthe cabin feel like it has plenty of room.
