Visit family in Japan and tour Japan at same time! This was a way to see the majority of the major sites in Japan in a 2 week period. The cities of Nagasaki and Hiroshima were historical was very moving to experience. Tokyo was very interesting and the Imperial palace was excellent to see. The ship was emasculate and the service was exceptional! The food was very good and the diversity of eating venues was excellent. The tours on the excursion were excellent. I would highly recommend this cruise. The pool on the ship had a retractable roof and that allowed use no matter the weather. The places we docked were overall very nice and the local schools performed for us on departures. This was very special, and there was no graffiti or liter anywhere. The Japanese people were so friendly. and helpful. The overall experience was very educational and exciting and enjoyable.
