Review summary

The first thing that makes a cruise so great is the weather. On this cruise, things couldn't have been more perfect. We had sunny to mostly sunny weather in every port. The crossing of the Bearing Sea was fairly smooth. We had a couple of days that during part of the day there was rain but the seas were overall not bad. On a scale of 1-5, comparing it to my other travels, I'd have to rate this one as a 2. We had two typhoons, one of which we had to change course for. It caused us to arrive about 2 hours later than scheduled in one port, yet our seas were moderate and we still had sunny weather in our ports. The crew was very friendly and helpful. I had the chance to interact with many, at many different levels and always had very positive experiences. The ports were all very good. I really enjoyed all the places I visited. The itinerary was great. There are many descriptions of the Russian port. I found it to go very smoothly. I didn't book any type of excursion and just planned to go ashore. No problems. Once my turn came up I was able to go through the Russian immigration process on board and then tender to shore. I was able to go where I wanted and had a great time visiting Petropavlovsk. The people where friendly and I really enjoyed visiting Russia. I also found all the Japanese ports to be very enjoyable. I would definitely do this itinerary again if it comes up again.
