Japan Cruise on the Nippon Maru

Japan Cruise on the Nippon Maru

There are currently three Japanese flag passenger ships. Of these, the Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) cruise ship Nippon Maru has been a popular cruise ship representing Japan for over 30 years. This ship used to cruise around the world, but took a long break due to the corona pandemic. At present, she is on a 3-4 night cruise around Japan.

Most of the passengers are Japanese, but many of the staff on the ship are foreigners, and they speak English. The ship’s newspaper, which is distributed to each cabin every day, is in Japanese only, and all events are basically in Japanese. Please be aware of these things. Of course, the friendly staff will be happy to help you.
