Our primary reason for choosing this cruise was the cost & a reasonably cheap airfare to fly to Japan. There were not many ports on this repositioning cruise, however many we had not been to for quite some time making it like a new experience. We spent three nights in Tokyo before the cruise which was an enough to wet our appetite to return to Japan for a more detailed land trip in the country. Embarkation was a slow process even though we were Elite Captain Circle members, not very well organised. Disembarkation was a joy as all the customs trivia was taken care of on-board prior to our arrival. In general we found our cabin to be ideal for us, as always with Princess the food & crew were excellent although we felt the entertainment had slipped a notch which seems to be the trend on Princess lately. The Princess singers, dancers & orchestra are great as usual though many of the support acts were not so great. Overall a great trip.
