My favorite part of this cruise are visit Kobe city,Okinawa city of Japan,visit Kaohsiung and Taipei of Taiwan. I and my wife very happy with this trip.We will recommend this trip ( 16 night Ryukyu Islands-Kyushu and Taiwan) to my friend.
We enjoyed this cruise and would recommend it. The ports were very interesting.
We sailed on the Diamond Princess a year ago but we felt the condition of the ship was not as good this time. The ship was going into dry dock for a facelift a couple weeks after we sailed so we surmised that our timing was bad.
The only thing we did not like was the description of this as a 12 day cruise. It was not. It was a seven day cruise followed by a five day cruise. Apparently, Princess combines shorter cruises in SE Asia to create longer cruises. This results in a bit of confusion as other people on the ship are not doing the same cruise as you and quite a few onboard activities are repeated for the people who came on board after the first week. Not optimal.
