The Pacific Princess is a relatively small ship by today's standards, about 34,000 tons; which had both advantages and disadvantages. The advantages included no crowds, no lines, and no waiting for most ship's services (except the laundromat); the disadvantages included not as many services as today's cruisers are becoming accustomed to.

Very educational, but the people here just don't seem very happy. Very attractive, very active, just not happy overall.
Don't Miss: The trans-siberian railroad and the people watching from the shore.

A very busy, lively port. Not as civil as Japanese ports, but very bustling.
Don't Miss: Suzhou.

A delightful port and very friendly city by Chinese standards. The people seemed happy to see you and appreciative of your being there.

Pros: The food in the restaurant and the Ports of Call

Cons: The length of the cruise was a little long for my taste
