We (DH, Mum and I) booked this as a repositioning cruise with minimal ports as we LOVE our sea days!
Mum had an inside cabin D715 and we had an aft mini suite E721
Embarkation in Yokohama was quite smooth. Just had one gripe and that was when they were calling numbers we could not see or hear. We knew that something was being said but not what was being said. They really do need to organise their PA system better.
I really enjoy having a bath, so it was a joy to be in an aft mini suite. DH loves sitting on a balcony with binoculars in hand, and this balcony seemed larger than most. It was completely covered so we were able to get out onto it even when the weather wasn't the best.
Our cabin steward, Romano, met with us at the beginning and asked us what we needed. He did exactly what we asked (top sheet on the bed, don't change the towels until we put them on the floor, and only make our bed once a day in the afternoon) and was a joy to meet in the corridor. He worked so hard to make sure everyone got a wonderful experience and a clean cabin.
We love having an aft cabin, and we got some wonderful views being on the starboard side.
We did have issues with the tv, and gave up trying to watch it some nights. But overall it wasn't too bad.
The bed and especially the new pillows were so so comfortable. Princess you have outdone yourself with those pillows! Only one gripe - why don't you have them for sale?
