Diamond-Princess-in-Kagoshima,-Japan

Princess Cruises has announced its 2018 Japan programme with more 60 voyages available, ranging from four to 23 nights sailings between April and December.

Guests can cruise solely around Japan, or combine it with other countries including South Korea, Taiwan, Russia and Vietnam.

The programme goes on sale today.

Highlights include a seven-night Japan Explorer voyage with Kumano fireworks (prices start from £979pp, departing August 15, 2018) and Spring Flowers voyage (from £879pp, departing April 13, 2018). Both are round-trips from Tokyo.

The season also includes six maiden ports of call and two new autumn sailings.

The new voyages, named Fall Foliage, will take place during Japan’s peak autumn season.

The itinerary includes calls to regions famous for their changing autumn colours, including Kyoto (Osaka) and Momijidani Park in Iwakuni.

Prices start from £999pp for the eight-night voyage, departing October 8, 2018.

Guests will sail on the 2,700-guest Diamond Princess, which will serve authentic cuisine, including sushi, and the ship boasts the largest Japanese bath of its kind at sea — a traditional onsen that’s both indoors and outdoors.
