Asia pre-cruise vlog: Los Angeles To Tokyo

Hey Cruisers,

In this video, we kick off our Asia Cruise series. It’s a 12 night cruise on the Diamond Princess, and we’ll visit Tokyo, Shimizu, Osaka, Taipei (Keelung), Hong Kong, Nha Trang & Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) Vietnam, and Singapore.

Before we get started don’t forget to visit our wonderful sponsor:
We start off this cruise vlog first thing in the morning with a lovely Los Angeles sunrise, and then we are off to LAX for some Airport adventure. Once we are on the plane we’ll give you a look at our seat assignments. We paid a little bit more for a tiny bit of extra space for the long flight. And it was a very long flight, but really not too bad. We had lots of movies, and tasty plane snacks! When we arrive in Yokohama we really have two main goals: 1. Money exchange in the Airport, and 2. Finding a bus to our hotel. We had done some research on getting these things done, and it really helped. We knew right where to go, and we’ll give you a quick look at the process. At the Hotel, I’ll give you a look at our accommodations. Lastly we’ll take your for a walk around Yokohama’s ChinaTown, and show you some of the many food options. Thanks for joining us for this day 1 cruise vlog as we travel to Japan for our Diamond Princess Asia Cruise. We’ve got much more Asia cruise adventures ahead. We’ll have some Asia cruise tips, more cruise vlogs from Japan, Taiwan, Vietnam, and Singapore.

So excited to see the rest of your trip. China Town looks amazing. I think I just moved Asia up on my list of places to visit.

Colleen H says:

Wow! Exciting trip you are on. I am so glad I searched for you and found this new video. For some reason YouTube has decided to hid all of your videos from my feed. Enjoy your trip. It truly is a once in a life time. Something I would love to do.

Kristal Sims says:

Next time you need currency for different countries on a cruise or trip in general, go to your credit union and order the various types of currency you will need for your trip. If you order it all at once, there will only be one fee and you will get the very best exchange rates. You will also avoid horrible atm fees. I will be picking up my order in a few weeks for my Panama Canal cruise and excursions.

David Stevenson says:

You were in my recommended feed. Glad I found your, can’t wait to see more. And huge shout out to your movie choices on the flight…Mama Mia Here We Go Again…..sad yes, but it’s ABBA music….what can be wrong with that….and Crazy Rich Asians…….my favorite movie of this year by far. Have a wonderful trip

thejokerspeaks says:

Madeline Mccan says:

So can you explain why the hotel took all your passports?

N/A N/A says:
