Phu My (Ho Chi Minh City), Vietnam

3 out of 5
Too far away to actually enjoy so we did our own thing which was ok.

Nha Trang, Vietnam

4 out of 5
Loved this City, had a great time and enjoyed our excursion. As there where a lot of older people on the cruise, it was very time consuming getting on/off the bus. Our group is a lot younger.

Hong Kong

4 out of 5
Loved this port but will have to say they have to get rid of the jewellery store visit out of their tour. Absolutely boring and a waste of time. Stanley Markets was totally awesome but was only give 45 mins there, so had to do speed shopping, 95% of the tour would have been happier to stay there instead of the jewellery store. Going up to the peak on the tram was excellent and dam cold, but thoroughly enjoyed

Osaka, Japan

4 out of 5
We organised our own excursion, the Mario Karts and enjoyed ourselves immensely.

Shimizu, Japan

4 out of 5
We just did our own sightseeing, catching public transport to the local shopping centre. Loved seeing Mt Fuji excellent day

Yokohama (Tokyo), Japan Did not visit port

We disembarked and stayed in Japan and extra 3 days so we left and caught the train to Shinjuku
