We booked this Diamond Princess cruise because it offered us to see all the four Japanese Autumn festivals in one go. If you were making this tour a pure land tour, it would be very tiresome.
Cruise along the coast of Honshu, the major island of Japan was very relaxing. The cruise gave you ample of time to see each of the festivals, and brough you back to the comfy on board environment in the evenings to enjoy dinners and good sleeps.
Ship cabin is very clean and maintained up to par by the hardworking cabin staff. Whenever you are out, they make sure that your cabin is put back in good order waiting for your end of the day return.
Throghout the cruise, we appreciated very much our cabin attendant who is very efficient and attentive to the cleanliness and hygiene of our cabin; and our restaurant waitress who is always cheerful and attentive.
Port Yokohama handles cruise very very efficiently.
