Review summary

So dull and quiet. If you like boring then that’s fine.

Embarkation

1 out of 5
6 hours late and no apology. Wandering around a cold Yokohama isn’t my idea of fun.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
Drinks package is extremely expensive and limited in my view. It’s just a pain when you’ve paid all that money to have to keep checking you’re not over your limit. Food was ok; nothing more. And if you’re vegetarian, forget it.

The majority of the staff are excellent and try their best to make amends for this miserable ship!

Cabin / Stateroom

Cabin was fine. Quiet and cozy with only a few rattles; that’s to be expected.

Ship tip

Use another cruise line, especially if you’re looking for some fun. I’ve never been on such dull, sober ship in my life.

Ports of call

Singapore

5 out of 5
I’m loving Singapore; so much to see and do. It’s also very accessible and the cleanest city I’ve ever seen! We’re here for 2 more days so looking forward to more exploring. Just glad to be off that awful ship!

Hong Kong

4 out of 5
You need to plan ahead for Hong Kong. I want to come back as it’s an interesting looking place but so huge, you need a few days to get your head around it.

Keelung (Taipei), Taiwan

Osaka, Japan

TOBA, JAPAN

Interesting; had an excursion here. The guide’s English was appalling, but the temple we visited was well worth the trip.

Yokohama (Tokyo), Japan

1 out of 5
Not Yokohama’s fault but I just wanted to get on the ship and couldn’t until 6pm. I was just tired and already fed up with Princess and their attitude.
