One of My Favorite Cruises – Hiroshima and Nagasaki

A cruise of Japan and Hong Kong on Crystal Cruise lines is a favorite for Kristie and me.   Our journey began with a flight to Yokohama, Japan.  With stops in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, we toured the museums remembering Imperial Japan and World War II.  You can only imagine the impact it had on us to view some of the displays that had little children’s bikes and shoes burned. Departing from Japan we set sail for Hong Kong, China. This is both an enjoyable and moving cruise, one that given the opportunity you really must take.

Cruising Benefits – Watching Sunrises and Sunsets At Sea
