Sail Date: Mar 2018
Cabin: Mini-Suite with Balcony

This was a 22 day cruise to Japan. The end destination was the main reason we chose this cruise but was unsure of the number of sea days. Apart from the Japan ports we had been to the others. A couple of tours the guides were not all that good but the cruise itself and the staff on board were much much better than expected. The staff are always friendly and helpful. The shows were all first class and you had different ones throughout the cruise. Comedy, production ones, magicians etc. Very talented people. The food was always good no matter if you had the buffet or ate in the restaurants. The daily news sheet let you see what was on and you could do as much or as little as you pleased. If you want an actual holiday then cruising is it. We enjoyed it so much we definitely plan to do another.

Cabin Review

Mini-Suite with Balcony

Cabin MB

We were glad we upgraded to the mini-suite as it just gave us that little bit extra room- especially for that length of time

Sydney (Australia)

Sydney is a pretty place and there is plenty to do. Well worth the visit.
