Review summary

I loved visiting the ports. Changes had to be made because of tge typhoon, and it’s amazing how everything could quickly be organized. Yokohama is a nice port to have as a base for more than one day.

I had a pre-cruise excursion that took us right to the embarkation. No lines.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Celia’s informative naturalist programs were great. I didn’t care as much for the man speaking about Japan who couldn’t pronounce towns.

Musicians were good. They could do without the hypnotist and so-called comedian who talked about bullying.

i couldn’t find an elevator to the 12th floor. Observation lounge only has part if the port side available.

The bathroom smelled. After I requested a spray and better cleaning, it was okay for two days. I couldn’t tell where the odor originated.
