Itinerary is good that calls many cities of many countries; Housekeeping, dining staffs are very nice.


- Almost each port disembarkation delayed, we were told with many various reasons.  The most heard excuse was "Customs Clearance".  And there was problem on disembark processing, it took long time to get out of the ship after the "clearance". So we had less time for sightseeing. I felt bad to see so many unhappy faces of our cruise fellows and crew members on the waiting line each morning.

- Many group tours on this boat. They yelled, they shouted, they didn't respect your vacation.

- Food was disappointed. We had very bad experience at Shogun, salt is its major ingredient, too too salty.
