Good for the Seoul


Japan is a land of contrasts. Their culture has been cultivated for millennia and they still cling to the values that have been in place for centuries, yet this somehow blends perfectly with the high-tech, neon lights and skyscrapers. Traditional wooden homes mingling with large glass and steel structures is a common sight, but as you explore this captivating destination on your cruise to Japan, you’ll see that things just make sense here.


Tokyo is a bustling wonderland - the capital of Japan and the most populated urban area in the world, it is incredibly large, yet somehow doesn’t feel as crowded as one would imagine. More like a collection of smaller cities, you’ll find the contrasts are typified here - the bright lights and electronic excitement of Shibuya and Akihabara are balanced with the quiet reverence of the gardens and shrines of Chiyoda.


Overlook the city from excellent viewing platforms such as the Tokyo Tower - a communications structure that’s a dead ringer for the Eiffel Tower. On a clear day you can see Mount Fuji in the distance from its lofty heights. Japanese food is also worth getting excited about. Tokyo boasts the most Michelin stars of any city in the world, and with the care and precision that goes into the preparation of any dish, you are never far away from a world class meal on a cruise to Japan.


Japan’s neighbour is at the end of a mountainous peninsula and has a similarly rich history. With the ability to surprise, you’ll find many memorable places and sights to enjoy on a cruise to South Korea. The capital city Seoul is a kinetic 24-hour metropolis, where there is so much to explore, but among the hustle and bustle you might stumble across a humble ancient tearoom or a centuries-old palace.


With numerous parks and historic sights South Korea is a joy to explore, and with the excellent transport links available it is easy to do so. The island of Jeju off the coast to the south-east of the peninsula is a beautiful location popular with holidaymakers and honeymooners alike. It’s easy to see why it is known as the ‘Island of the Gods’, its volcanic landscape home to both picturesque parks and coastlines. Head to the north west of the island to encounter the most stunning white sand beaches.
