Review summary

I loved the ports we went to and at almost every port the people came out to give us a warm send off. This was the ships first time in a couple ports and they seemed to go out of their way to make us feel welcome! In Iwakuni they even had fireworks as we left. In Toba we were anchored off shore and when left, the town people came out in a ferry and played music and waved as we left and two Japanese coast guard ships shot water into the air. It was amazing!

We had a wonderful experience with restaurant staffs in Sabatini’s and Santa Fa restaurants. Everyone worked extremely hard and seemed dedicated to making our experience a good one.

Ship Quality

Overall very good except for the smell on the promenade deck midship starboard side? They really need to get that fixed and soon! Otherwise ship seemed well maintained and clean.

Ship tip

On our cruise, Nagoya was the next stop after Busan. We were only in port till 4:00. We spent until 12:30 getting through Japanese immigration. Those that took excursions got through the fastest. Otherwise you Jed little or no time to visit this port.

Didn’t really get to see much because of immigration, but the send off by their dance team was amazing!
