The crew were for the most part pleasant and accommodating. Food was above average and the pastry chef was particularly good. Themed dinners were okay but too much Thai. Food not always available but 24 room service was pretty good. The tours were conducted by good English speaking instructors (Dalian to Lushun prison and Beijing to Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square). Internet was spotty. Room 6004 was a good size, beds comfortable with lovely sheets but the whole ship needs renovation. Do not reserve this cabin if you have any issue with motion sickness. It is in the forward part of the ship and it was awful in rough seas. It was also very noisy when the entertainment in the lounge was going on. Overall a good trip. The port agent in Kobe did a good job helping us to get back to the ship on time on one precarious occasion. The age range though really is 65-80.
Do not reserve this cabin if you have any issue with motion sickness. It is in the forward part of the ship and it was awful in rough seas and for hours on end. It was also very noisy when the entertainment in the lounge was going on. Good size.
Loved Hong Kong. Exciting and full of life.
Got caught with rail being slow from Kyoto to port. Port agent did an excellent job of helping us to get back.
Don't bother taking an excursion. You can take the shuttle to the museum and then walk the park yourself. There is some great street shopping within walking distance of the museum.
Very walkable and you can take the streetcar. Don't bother with an excursion.
very good English speaking guide. wonderful outing. good food for lunch.
