Review summary

I’m impressed how well changes and accommodations could be made in Yokohama because of a typhoon, then later the itinerary changes because of the second typhoon. Celebrity shore excursions were expensive, and none for the “mild” activity rating. A nice alternative was the availability of free shuttles.

Didn’t care for comedian and magician and hypnotist. Musical guests were good.
