  • Sail Date: Sep 2016
  • Destination: Asia
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

In a word....letdown! Just completed back to back 14 day cruise around Japan, Russia and Korea. This is my second trip to Japan and if you are interested in seeing the country as you should, do a good land tour. On paper it sounded good, but the port stops were not great and somewhat boring. Russia...korsakov...was a complete waste of time and the immigration exercises were horrible and too frequent. Had I known all of this, I would have done another land tour for sure. There are so many nice places to see in the country, but not from a ship.

Having said that, the ship was nice, service good. The food, however,was not all that good.

There were chances to do back to back cruises several ways. When we boarded, many were staying on and we soon came to find out that many people were sick with colds and flu like symptoms. Of course we disembarked sick as well and when I questioned staff they assured me that all sick passengers were quarantined,,,,yea....right!!
