This was a great trip. We were on the edge of a Typhoon and you could hardly feel the rough seas. It was very smooth sailing. Embarkaton and diembarkation were done well and with efficencey. The ship in places was a little tired, but otherwise very good. The cabin was a mini suite and it was spacious and great to spend time in it. The bathroom was great and we had a bath, the shower head however was stuck in the corner and not adjustable, so we had to try and stand well in the corner to shower and this made it difficult. The dinning was average. They really did not cater for people with food allergies. The bistro was also good, but the food did not change, you could predict what was available at any given time. The staff in the bistro was fantastic and were very helpful. The entertainment was very good. There were a couple of shows that were below par, but that is to be expected on a cruise of this length. The service and the staff were excellent and I could not fault them. The ports and the excursions were also fantastic and well worth doing. The only problem was the deck 15, most people wanted to do circutes of the deck for exercise and it was continually blocked off and it has partitions on the back of the ship which was annoying. The shops were only for those wanting to shop in high end shops or those who were watching the pennies, nothing inbetween. Went to all the art auctions and even bought a few paintings. The only negative there is that they now ship the paintings individually (have not revieved them yet to see if that really happens) and charge you accordingly. On previous cruise they would send groups of 3 or more and charge one standered mailing fee. Read Less

After 3 nights in the Grand Pacific le Daiba Tokyo sheer luxury We transferred to our cruise ship with no hitch on arrival we had to fill in embarkation forms oh boy! that's when the fun starts hustle and bustle push and shove. What's the problem you all have your cabins allocated . After a while we got on board and elected to speak to the purser with our little problem out of the way off to our cabin E DECK steerage . It was found to be small but clean and tidy with a steward with the biggest grin you ever did see to welcome us aboard cases arrived shortly after . A quick un pack and off to explore the ship which I can only describe as being Disney I/e falsely plastic not impressed but that's my opinion.. Plenty of Bars at inflated prices no wonder we are not allowed to take our own tipple on board although the staff where polite and courteous with great big smile wall to wall if you like. Trips ashore we booked for every port that we stopped at not a wise thing to do as it was latter found that most of the Palaces Temples and Gardens had a notice to say over 65 free and as half the boat was 65 and over well I rest my case. so in truth we paid over the odds for the courier/guide and coach. But it was very informative to say the least. Dinning I would strongly recommend late sitting as you miss the captains champers evening and other events ,Guest at our table were Australian and UK great bunch to say the least no complaints there . Other areas of the boat This old tub has just had a very expensive refit cost millions a Japanese bath that a lot of passengers were keen to use until they realised you had to go commando (in the buff). We found that the area used for tranquillity and quite at $30 per session was under used the same goes for the sushi bar the Italian, and steak house restraunts were under subscribed you only had to walk around the deck at night and look in the windowsill in all an experience not to be missed the Japanese are a welcoming courteous race despite ww2 and there tribal History strongly recommended place to visit before you go phone Japanese tourist board they are really first class in helpfulness with your trip tell them the ports and information will arrive on your door step with in days .
