Day Port Due Depart
1-2 Flight departs
2 Osaka Hotel Stay - 1 Nights
3 Kobe
Kobe
The area of Kobe was expanded and today it includes Mount Maya, Sumaura Park, Sumaike park with a good spa and the famous Arima spa. Arima spa is one of oldest spas in Japan, whose earliest record is found already in Nihonshoki. Kobe is also famous for its Kobe beef, a very expensive meat delicacy.
4 Kochi
5 Hiroshima
Hiroshima
Hiroshima is the capital of Hiroshima Prefecture, and the largest city in the Chugoku region of western Honshu, the largest island of Japan. It became best known as the first city in history to be destroyed by a nuclear weapon when the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) dropped an atomic bomb on it at 8:15 A.M. on August 6, 1945, near the end of World War II.
6 Matsuyama
7 Aburatsu
8 Busan
Busan
The second largest city in South Korea and the nation's primary seaport, Pusan is your gateway to a fascinating land whose culture is a unique amalgam of old and new. Modern high-rise towers dwarf ancient Buddhist temples, and the city's bustling business district offers a stark contrast to the serene grounds of Yongdusan Park. Pusan is, in short, a microcosm of South Korea, a nation whose startling economic success often obscures, to Westerners, one of Asia's most sophisticated and venerable cultures.

11 At Sea
12 Okinawa
Okinawa
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.
13 Miyakojima
14 Taipei (Keelung)
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. The night market is easily accessible on foot for most travelers arriving from other cities.

Customer reviews for Diamond Princess

We have just returned from Japan and South Korea. Iglu arranged everything for us , Hotels, transfers, cruise ,and flights. It transpired whilst away that or return flight was the wrong day, we contacted iglu and they sorted everything out for us without delay. Could not have had better service.

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.
