Chose this ship because it sailed to ports in and around Japan that I wanted to visit.

Getting around in Japan is easy, we traveled from Kyoto on the day of the cruise by rail, you can take the shinkansen directly to Kobe or take a slightly slower train via Osaka which is what we did. Get of the train one station before Kobe and there is a tram which takes you directly to the ship, the tram cost about 200 yen, easy as.

The ship is in good condition, but not as nice as some we have been on. Don't expect a party boat though, the Japanese are very conservative and most bars were as quite as the grave.

Furthest forward and highest part of the ship, Gets a bit bumpy in high seas. Very close to pools an buffet. Not to bad at all.
