We chose this cruise because we had never been to Japan. We would have appreciated more lectures and information in depth about the places we visited. The excursions were satisfactory, but they were very crowded with 30 plus people on the bus and some of the guides were difficult to understand. Some of the excursions were quite expensive and the included excursions tended to be good except that they were crowded.
One guest lecturer was excellent, and one rather repeated the first lecturer. I would have appreciated more lectures.
The entertainment was good in most cases, except for one vocalist.
