Review summary

Another great Cruise with Princess, our personal highlight was we renewed our marriage vows, after 31 years, and the event was superbly arranged by the Princess staff, and the Captain made a great effort to ensure we felt special during the event.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Usual standards from Princess, great friendly service every meal, reason for 4 stars and not 5 starts was we felt the meal selection was very similar some nights

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
The usual variety of activities onboard, not too much time spent in the pools or the gym!

Entertainment

4 out of 5
A good selection of shows, and the comedian was very funny, and for us the best show on the cruise

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Unusually for Princess, and a first for us, the room steward made no effort to interact, other than say hello a few times, but everyone else we met were superb

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Always clean, and although showing some signs of age, we loved the Diamond

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Usual Princess mini suite. The Japanese toilets being a bit different for us, but loved them!

Ship tip

Enjoy every moment, as the cruise goes very quickly

Ports of call

Yokohama (Tokyo), Japan Did not visit port

We took a trip to Mt Fuji independently.

TOBA, JAPAN

4 out of 5
We took a ship excursion, as we love the guarantee that the ship is not going to leave if there are any issues during the day, meaning a late return to the ship

Osaka, Japan

Keelung (Taipei), Taiwan
