Review summary

We disembarked 11 days earlier because of the bad quality of the food. Additionally the itinerary was changed eliminating three ports, two of which were highlights of the cruise: Incheon for Seoul and Osaka for Kyoto. After going through a Gale Storm and the Typhoon Trami, there was another typhoon heading towards the ships path. We had had enough very scary and uncomfortable days at sea rocking and rolling at the middle of the sea.

Cabin / Stateroom

The Mattress needs replacement. The veranda showed rusted metal on the floor and the hand rail was unvarnished. The TV set was very old with poor image and awful sound

Ship tip

Try to book shore excursions elsewhere because the ship's are expensive and poor quality.
