Tokyo to Vancouver via Russia and Alaska

We had originally booked a shorter cruise of the inside passage when we found this longer cruise for less money because it was a repositioning cruise. I was able to show my wife beautiful parts of Japan before ...

Not the love boat

My wife and I chose this cruise for two reasons. We had never been to this part of the world, and we had never been on a Princess cruise. The ports that we were seeing seemed great, parts of the world like Singapore ...

I have always wanted to visit Dutch Harbor in the Aleutian Islands because my grandfather was a ship's carpenter there in 1910. I turned 80, the first night on the ship. Northern Japan has the influence of both ...

No Surprises To A Little Bit Of Disappointment

We chose this cruise because it went to several ports that we haven't been there before. But we may need a second thought next time to see Japan is good for cruise visit or rather land tour. Some ports are too ...

The Diamond has lost her lustre!

The cruise was chosen so we could see most of Japan with the convenience of a cruise...perhaps we would have been better off using the rail system itself. Getting to our hotel from Haneda easily accomplished by ...

Great Itinerary, Poor Ship

Itinerary was what attracted us and we were happy with each destination except for the Mt. Fuji tour which only took us to the gift shop on Mt. Fuji rather than further up the mountain. The ship is dated and could ...

Good for a round the island tour of Japan

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 ...
