You would think that a ship updated solely for the Japan market would do Japanese-related things (restaurants, food and menu, ports of call) well.

No such luck. Everything was poorly done - even the extra charge sushi restaurant was artificial. Very disappointing.

Also, we were shocked to see that there were very long lines to get into the buffet (Horizon Court). The pool side grill didn’t have or serve hot dogs or “pies” (the UK snack).

Cabin Review

Mini-Suite with Balcony

Cabin MB

Typically nice Princess mini-suite. The bathroom has been updated - the “spa shower head” is nice.

Port Reviews

Tokyo (Yokohama)

Princess offered no options and none were available at the precruise hotel

Hakodate

The weather did not allow any good views from Mount Hakodate

Hiroshima

A fascinating tour. One note: the famous Torrey Gate and another shrine were shrouded for maintenance and painting. Two more years.
