Excellent professional knowledge regarding our cruise requirements.

My wife and I booked our two 2022 Mediterranean cruises (Celebrity-X and Cunard) with Jeannette and Michelle. These two ladies provided us both with all the information we required to make our bookings without delay. Jeannette has advised us previously on our cruise requirements. The knowledge and professionalism of these two ladies is very reassuring when making our cruise decisions. It's a pleasure spending our money with you. Well done!!

Day 1 - Tokyo

Arrive: Sat 14 August 2021 / Depart: Sat 14 August 2021 at 17:00

Yokohama and Edo began life as sleepy fishing villages. That changed in the early 17th century after Tokugawa Ieyasu became Shogun. Edo became the center of political power in Japan, a position the city retained even after the restoration of Imperial rule in 1866. Contemporary Tokyo may be the most astonishing city on earth. It's a paradoxical mix of ancient tradition and postmodern culture. The Ginza - an international shopping mecca - stands near the serene grounds of the Imperial Palace, and the hyper-speed of 21st century consumerism is mysteriously reconciled with the elegance and serenity of traditional culture. Tokyo provides the traveler with a dizzying experience. With the Meiji Restoration of 1868, Edo was renamed Tokyo, the "Eastern Capital," to distinguish it from the old imperial capital at Kyoto, the "Western Capital."

Day 2 - Tokushima, Japan

Arrive: Sun 15 August 2021 at 13:00 / Depart: Sun 15 August 2021 at 23:59

Day 3 - Osaka

Arrive: Mon 16 August 2021 at 09:00 / Depart: Mon 16 August 2021 at 21:00

For centuries, Osaka was Japan's cultural and commercial gateway to Asia - the point of entry both for trade goods and, most importantly, cultural influences that shaped Japanese society. From tea to Zen, from art to science and philosophy, Osaka was Japan's contact with the great East Asian cultures that flourished in China and Korea. The city reached its zenith in the late 16th century, when the great feudal lord Toyotomi Hideyoshi made Osaka his capital. Toyotomi was master of Japan, and an immense administrative and commercial center rapidly developed around Osaka Castle. After Toyotomi's death, the nation's seat of power shifted from Osaka to a sleepy little fishing village called Edo - modern Tokyo. While overshadowed by Tokyo, Osaka remains Japan's second largest city and a vital commercial center. Modern Osaka is home to monuments from Japan's past including Toyotomi's immense castle and the Sumiyoshi Shrine. The city is also your gateway to Kyoto, Japan's ancient imperial capital and the nation's cultural and spiritual center.

Day 4 - Kumano, Japan

Arrive: Tue 17 August 2021 at 18:00 / Depart: Tue 17 August 2021 at 22:00

Day 5 - Kochi, Japan

Arrive: Wed 18 August 2021 at 08:00 / Depart: Wed 18 August 2021 at 16:00

Day 6 - Kagoshima

Arrive: Thu 19 August 2021 at 08:00 / Depart: Thu 19 August 2021 at 16:00

From the 12th century to the Meiji Restoration of 1868, Kagoshima was the chief stronghold of the mighty Shimazu clan. The city lies at the top of the Satsuma Peninsula, a mountainous, geothermal wonderland of hot springs and geysers. The area is also rich in modern Japanese history: Saigo Takamori and the Satsuma samurai were leaders of the Meiji Restoration that toppled the shogun and restored the Emperor to power in 1868. In 1877, dissatisfied with the direction of the new government, Saigo led the Satsuma Rebellion, which ended in his death and the final defeat of the samurai. The symbol of Kagoshima is Sakura Jima - the volcanic island that sits just offshore. The volcano has erupted over 30 times in recorded history.

Day 7 - Busan, South Korea

Arrive: Fri 20 August 2021 at 09:00 / Depart: Fri 20 August 2021 at 18:00

The second largest city in South Korea, Busan 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. The city's bustling business district offers a stark contrast to the serene grounds of Yongdusan Park. In short, Busan is a microcosm of South Korea, a nation whose startling economic success often obscures one of Asia's most sophisticated and venerable cultures. Busan was the scene of bitter fighting during the Korean War. The United Nations Memorial Cemetery marks the final resting place for the troops from 16 nations who gave their lives during the conflict.

Day 8 - Sasebo, Japan

Arrive: Sat 21 August 2021 at 07:00 / Depart: Sat 21 August 2021 at 15:00

Day 9 - At Sea

Day 10 - Tokyo

Arrive: Mon 23 August 2021 at 06:30 / Depart: Mon 23 August 2021

Yokohama and Edo began life as sleepy fishing villages. That changed in the early 17th century after Tokugawa Ieyasu became Shogun. Edo became the center of political power in Japan, a position the city retained even after the restoration of Imperial rule in 1866. Contemporary Tokyo may be the most astonishing city on earth.
