Great cruise and Itinerary The only thing different about this cruise from other Princess cruises is that the portion size for dinner is smaller than what you are used to. We were warned about this from our waiter. No worries however, because if you are still hungry they will bring out another serving.! The only problem we encountered is that the tv in the room kept freezing while watching movies at night. This was a little frustrating. The entertainment was okay. Not the best but not the worst. If you like the casino, it was closed for most of the cruise. Japan does not allow gambling while in their waters. The excursions offered on the ship were nice and the tour guides spoke English very well. There was a lot of walking involved and a lot of stair climbing. I suggest getting in shape prior to travel.If you want to see Japan, this is the way to go.

Cabin Review

Premium Balcony
Cabin B4 A414
Since there were 4 of us sharing a cabin I was worried about storage space. There was plenty of drawer space for all of us with room to spare. I would suggest bringing some wire hangers with you for your clothes. Extra hangers are always nice and you can leave them in the closet when you leave.
