We chose this cruise because it went to places in Japan we could never get to easily in the time. We enjoyed all the excursions and took advantage of the opportunities they afforded. Definitely worth it for the excursions. But the stateroom was half the size of staterooms on P&O cruise ships. The shower was over the bath which is not suitable for people with mobility issues. The bathroom was so small you couldn’t get changed in it. The toilet was in the bathroom not separate which was an issue when sharing with a friend. The Club Class dining was average with no options for Japanese cuisine. Got charged for a Yoga class which I walked out on because the instructor was doing starjumps. Not exactly yoga. Had a reasonably priced wine option for the first couple of days and then a more expensive wine was the only choice. Went from $35 to $51 which made a significant difference.

Mini-Suite with Balcony

Cabin M1

Half the size of stateroom on P&O ships. Shower over bath which is not good 4 anyone who has mobility issues. Shower unit was rubbish. Steward had shower head changed but still not brilliant. Very small bathroom with no separate toilet which difficult at times sharing with friend.
