We chose this cruise based on the amazing time we had previously cruising Diamond Princess from Singapore. This cruise left from Sydney and arrived in Tokyo and had heaps of sea days to really enjoy the boat.

The kids had a blast in the kids club.

In the fitness club we experienced a grumpy lady who didn't think my son should be using the equipment even though he was accompanied by myself. The staff soon set her straight but I felt embarrassed.

Cabin Review


Cabin IF

Clean and quiet, great location for an interior, not too far from elevators.

Port Reviews

Sydney (Australia)

Easy cruise terminal and great location


We did Jumping Crocodile through Adelaide River Transfers, well worth the money and heaps cheaper than the ship arranged tour.

Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon)

This port is miles from the city, so make sure you book an excursion either with the ship or a reputable operator. We used Water Buffalo Tours and had an amazing tour called Highlights of Saigon. Highly recommended.

Nha Trang

We visited Vin Pearl Land and the kids really enjoyed themselves. All rides included.


Visited Osaka castle and went on ferris wheel, great day out.
