Great itinerary and wonderful staff!

Sail Date: September 18, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

My favorite parts were the itinerary which was very rich and educational. We also loved our stateroom and the attendant, as well as the Main Dining Room staff. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The entertainment was very good, the harmonica player from Hong Kong was exceptional, but all others were excellent as well.

Needs improvement: at the entrance to the dining room they need to encourage using of hand sanitizer more energetically, as is done on other cruise lines.

Cabin / Stateroom
The cabin was very comfortable, clean, with lots of storage room, very functionally designed. The balcony was spacious and provided a wonderful view to the port.

Onboard Activities
I wish there were more games and dance lessons onboard, as we have seen on other ships.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
The food at the buffet was very spicy at lunch, without it being marked as spicy. For people who can't eat spicy food it makes it impossible to enjoy their meal, as most of the food was spicy. I had to eat pizza for lunch every day since at least I knew what it was. Too many Indian dishes which Americans are not too familiar with. Have a description for the dishes and mark which ones are spicy.
Yokohama (Tokyo), Japan
Tokyo functions like a clock, super clean and many English street signs. The Japanese people are SUPER friendly and helpful even when they don't understand any English. They literally take you to your destination, going out of their way to make sure you don't get lost.

Kobe (Kyoto), Japan
Kochi, Japan


This ship is in a great condition, very clean and comfortable, but no frills as far as decorations. The dance space is small in the lounge, only enough room for 5-6 couples max. The elevators were never crowded and there are many of them. The indoor pool is great, with tidal wave! Several Jacuzzis!
