It’s time to visit Shimizu on our Diamond Princess Asia Cruise. This is our second day of our 12 night cruise, during which we’ll cover 2800 nautical miles and visit Tokyo, Shimizu, Osaka, Taipei (Keelung), Hong Kong, Nha Trang & Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) Vietnam, and Singapore.
We start off this cruise vlog bright and early in the morning with a stunning view of beautiful Mt Fuji. Jet lag had us both up early, and we lucked out with a truly awesome vista of Mount Fuji. After coffee and a quick breakfast we were off to explore the charming port of Shimizu. We had some fun with the local vendors and townspeople that came out to greet us, and then we headed off to visit the S-Pulse Dream Plaza. S-Pulse Dream Plaza is a shopping center by the seaside where visitors can enjoy shopping, gourmet food and entertainment. It seemed like there was so much to do there. Of course there are the shops and restaurants, but there are other attractions like the Ferris Wheel. From the Dream Sky Ferris Wheel magnificent views of the World Heritage site Mount Fuji can be seen across Suruga Bay on sunny days. There are also fun rides and games for kids. After shopping, and making friends with shopkeepers, it was time for lunch. We were a little nervous about trying to order food in Japanese, but it wasn’t a problem at all. Everyone was super nice, and very patient with us. Our port day went by quickly, and before long it was time to return to the ship. The lovely people on shore gave us a beautiful send off, and sadly our time in Shimizu was over. Some days, we like to do it all, but this day was all about NOT having a plan. As the Diamond Princess pulled into this friendly port city, we were immediately amazed by the friendly hospitality of the locals. Many brought their pets to port to greet us, and the send-off musical performance brought tears to my eyes. Despite a severe lack of sleep, this day was one of the sweetest on our Princess Cruises voyage to Asia. 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.
