We chose this cruise for the destination reasons....However the food and entertainment were not changed at all from the first 8 days to the second 8 days...and the lack of attention to detail by staff meant that we missed out on 2 tours. Also this is the only ship we have ever cruised on where you are asked to move from the decks at 2.00 p.m in the afternoon so that they can do maintenance...It was disgraceful. The Entertainment was absolutely shocking and the Cruise Director was terrible. Although the Food service was ok. the food was repediative and very small servings. Embarkation and Disembarkation was quite smooth.... We were told the adult pool area would be available and once we got on we found it was not in service on this cruise. Excursions were o.k but I do advise for people not to book for the Crane Park in Japan it is a complete waste of money.

Very Dissatisfied
