Cruise On Diamond Princess

We went on the cruise around Hokkaido on the 

Diamond Princess

There were a lot of tourists from Japan and its neighboring countries! And no more than 5 percent of passengers were from other countries. Most of the people there were young, the average age was between 30 and 50. There were also a lot of families with children, not so many with older family members.  
I found an interesting event in the program - basic English for the Japanese, and the reverse - basic Japanese for Americans. It was cool!

We found what could be described as barely a library, buried in a high traffic hallway, on the side of the three-story atrium. So, that's where we sat. There was a performance being held behind us; passengers were being shown how to cut fruit in beautiful ways, presented SPA-programs (there was even a massage shown in front of an audience), and dance performed by a couple. The music was playing, the audience were applauding, children were running around . . . and we were in the library. This wasn't work, it was a holiday!

And there was a birthday celebration for a young girl at the next table:

Champagne was poured into glasses stacked like a fountain:  
And a virtuoso pianist brilliantly finished the day.
