We wanted to visit Asia for the first time - Dining room attendants and stateroom were fantastic. Very friendly yet respectful - We received stateroom upgrade- Cabin was very clean - Amenities in the cabin were in good working conditions- Inside of the ship was very clean and colorfully decorated - The embarkation and disembarkation were well organized. So they occurred smoothly - The Front Desk Staff were helpful when we had questions- They were also very effective in doing their jobs.
We visited Japan, China, Vietnam and Taiwan. There were 7 ports of call - We took an excursion each port. We took an excursion in Tokyo/Yokohama as well at the end of the cruise - Places visited were .interesting, Okinawa in particular - We learned a great deal of the history of Asia - People in Kogashima went extra length to make us feel welcome. A large group pf them came to the port to wave us goodbye and release ballons and pigeons when were leaving.
Downside: The temperature in the ship was too hot on occasions and the water for the shower was too hot during a major part of the trip. EZAir handled our travel arrangements- The flight times were exceedingly too long, particularly the flight from Toronto to Hong Kong and Hong Kong to Tokyo.. While EZAir might have made profit we definitely had a lot of headache.
However, overall the trip was a wonderful and a very informative experience. There is no doubt we would take same again should we have the opportunity.to do so. However we would not use EZAir again.
Wonderful - Very clean - Comfortable bedding
