Very fun with the kids!Reviewed by: Mikan Mama, 2015/12/25
Our wedding anniversary was coming up, so we decided to take part on this cruise with our children (ages 3 and 7 months). My eldest son was very excited to be able to go on a big boat, but when he saw the real ship, it was bigger than he imagined and got even more excited. I took my younger son on a stroller, but we were able to board without any problems and went straight to the restaurant. We added a children’s meal for our older son, but the portion for him was perfect. The portion for the adult seemed to be a little less, but it was a nice amount to enjoy while leisurely watching the view. After our meal, we went out to enjoy the evening scenery. Many of the attendees appeared to be couples, but the restaurant was full of people (there was even a live pianist) and I felt like even families with children can fully enjoy. We went under the Rainbow Bridge, saw the Tokyo Tower, the Ferris wheel, and even planes going in and out of Haneda Airport. There were plenty of things to keep our three year old son occupied and interested during the two and a half hour ride!

Romantic CruiseReviewed by: Miyuki, 2015/12/24
Finally, I was able to take part of this Vingt et Un cruise.
At the Takeshiba terminal, there was a counter for the Vingt et Un cruises where you can check in. Inside of the ship had many restaurants and we were guided to the Pier 21 restaurant.
Seems like there was a wedding the same day and we saw the very pretty bride.
There were also fireworks going off on Saturdays of December and we were lucky enough to catch the fireworks!
The navy blue interior of the restaurant was calming and the service was superb. The ship barely shook and I believe it’s comfortable even for people who easily get sea sick.
We had the Vingt et Un course that day. The course of the Christmas menu began with a glass of champagne, salmon hors d’oeuvre, mushroom soup, red snapper in tomato sauce for the fish dish, roast chicken for the meat dish, and dessert was a mini buche de noel with vanilla ice cream. For people who can’t drink alcohol, you can always replace it with a non-alcoholic drink too. They had a nice selection of non-alcoholic cocktails too.
The cruise itself was 2 hours long and after a cup of coffee, we finished paying for our drinks, peeked around the souvenir shop, and spent the remaining time on the deck.
If you would like to spend a memorable and romantic time with a person you love, this is a perfect cruise to go on.

From start to finish, the evening was lovely. The ship is quite big, and prettily lit up. We were seated right by the window, so got to watch the bridges, smaller boats and Tokyo Tower go by over the water. We ordered a bottle of champagne (like most cruises, drinks were extra), and never had to pour it because the waitress was so attentive.
What was particularly nice is that this cruise can accommodate vegetarians (and apparently halal menus too), so I could eat everything in the tasting course! Very yummy.
We booked the cruise as a special wedding celebration, and so ordered a cake, which was truly delicious (and they even were kind enough to get a chocolate one, when we asked if it was possible when booking)
