Additional details

Sail Date: Mar 2016
Cabin: Deluxe Stateroom with Balcony and Bath/Shower

We wanted to visit many of the ports offered on this leg of the World cruise.

Embarkation was poorly organised as there was little room at HongKong terminal.

Our cabin was fine and what we expected ie Queen size bed,balcony and good bathroom with bath and tea making facility.There was poor hanging space in the wardrobe but we managed.

Port Reviews

Honolulu

Have been here before now completely Americanised,lots of shops,would recommend taking a bus tour out of Honolulu and seeing something of the North part of the island.

Hilo

Took local tour,hop on hop off bus for 20 dollars,found this island more authenticly Hawaiian,loved Hilo town ,markets etc.Prices here more reasonable.

San Francisco

What's not to love in San Francisco,2 days here ,so saw Napa and Sonoma valleys then across the bay to Fabulous Muir woods to see giant Redwoods and pretty Sauselito.

San Diego

Used hop on hop off trolley in Beautiful San Diego,visited Del Coronado to see the famous hotel used in film (Some like it hot)So beautiful here,gorgeous shops,restaurants etc Ended at Old Town on perfect day.

Aruba

Americanised island,spent afternoon on sandy beach in High-rise area swimming and sun bathing.Spent the evening in Capital of Aruba at bar by the sea with dozens more off the Arcadia.

St. Maarten

White sands,warm waters,good bars and restaurants,took local bus to French side for lunch.

Ponta Delgada

Even though it was a Sunday there was a special once a year Religious Festival in progress,wonderful.Cheap place to shop and eat.

Osaka

Just wonderful cannot wait to return

Nagasaki

Easy to negotiate this town with excellent transportation,amazing memorials of the Atom bomb disaster,take the skyline tram for breathtaking views,wondeful people and most welcoming.
