We are a couple in our Fifties this was our seventh cruise previously on Princess 2 times, Cunard, Royal Caribbean NCL and Carnival . Our 2 sons (in their twenties were also on this cruise, mainly because of the Itinerary ....effectively a 3 day city break in Tokyo and then a 9 day cruise around southern Japan visiting many of the sites. We booked this because we particularly liked the planned itinerary.
The 3 day pre-cruise break was good, though partially spoilt by the weather, we did not know there was more to come..., We stayed at the Tokyo Grand in the financial district, the double rooms were on the small size... smaller than a Princess ship cabin, though the twin rooms were larger.. okay but a bit tired.
On the first day we did a full day organised coach trip of Tokyo, this was good and they packed a lot in seeing all of the major sites in the central part of Tokyo..
