The only subtropical prefecture of the Japanese islands offers splendid coral-reef diving, plus many interesting sights to occupy your time. Given its turbulent history, Okinawa has evolved into a unique melting pot of cultures — a mix of Ryukyuan, Chinese and Japanese traditions permeated by American pop culture from the U.S.'s long military presence on the island.

Taipei (Keelung)
Energetic and eclectic, Taipei is the heart of all the action. It's the crowded, bustling center of Taiwan's commerce, government and culture. Keelung's Miaokou Night Market is famous throughout Taiwan for its large selection of food. It meanders through lanes and alleys in the downtown area surrounding the Dianji Temple.

Was disappointed didn't get free upgrade for stateroom. Food particularly in the buffet restaurant Horizon Court very good.Huge choice. Was able to take part in some activities. Not enough time to try all. Expensive internet on board could not always get free on shore! While disembarkation was well organised, we were bussed to Narita airport 5/6 hours before could check in. Sorry not a fan of airport shopping and wait was frustrating!

After spending a most enjoyable 4 days in Tokyo, We took a 9 day cruise around Japan. The itinerary was good and the shore excursions interesting. For those who did not want to join the ship's own excursions, there was a shuttle from the ship into the local town. The cost varied from 10 US dollars to 20 dollars depending on the distance involved. We think this service should have been free. The Diamond Princess was an excellent ship - one of the best we have sailed on. The ship itself was well-designed in terms of layout and the very large TV screen on deck 14 was good for relaxing and watching a film etc. There were so many things happening onboard during the day, it was hard to decide which one to attend. The staff were all very attentive and there was no pressure to purchase things, particularly drinks, which has not been the case on other cruises we have been on. The trip was organised by IGLU and every aspect of it worked as planned. So all in all a very enjoyable holiday. In fact we are off with IGLU in December to the Antarctic.

The cruise was very nice indeed and with great staff. The only negative really is the rip-off prices for some of the ships tours some of which were reported as deplorable particularly one which stopped in Korsakov in Russia. Also balconies were very dirty and we could not sit out on them. Great organisation however by Iglu
