Abercrombie & Kent Wonders of Japan cruise from 25 March to 7 April 2021 with Jann Porter

Experience stunning & ever-compelling Japan on an 11-night cruise with A&K’s renowned Expedition Team and enrichment specialists, exploring unique ports and enjoying included shore excursions, all from aboard exclusively chartered, all-balcony ‘Le Laperouse’.

I did the Abercrombie & Kent Wonders of Japan cruise with a group of 18 in May 2016 and it was a wonderful insight into Japan. A&K is an excellent company and they have a knowledgeable expedition team who are joined by about 8 Japanese guides who also stay onboard and accompany the tours; this really adds to the wonderful experience.

A&K usually does this cruise in May / June with 199 guests but in 2021, they’re doing this trip in March / April for the cherry blossom season and on a smaller ship with 148 guests. They’re chartering Le Laperouse, a beautiful sleek French motor yacht with a guest capacity of 184 but limited to only 148 guests on this charter, to ensure a more exclusive experience.

The 2021 itinerary and pricing will only be finalised in December but I suggest that we already provisionally hold you the accommodation that you think will be best for you; let me know if you’d like more information.

Cherry Blossoms and the best time to visit

The cherry blossom season is in Spring, around the end of March and the beginning of April. This trip should be during the optimum cherry blossom time but there are no guarantees as this is weather dependent. Japan has beautiful gardens and this will also be a great time for them.

The weather will be on the cooler side, especially further north towards the end, so warmer clothing will be needed but this isn’t a wet period, so it should be brisk but very nice.

I look forward to hearing from you and do hope that you can join me on this wonderful trip to the Japan.

Best regards,
Jann
