  • ...reporting for duty, sir! 😊😊😊
  • I thing it was the impression I made before one is aware NYK line Japan Yusen-Mitsubishi is chasing Japan shipping history here, finally finished in joint venture collaboration that could understand. All look so fine it is video content in all areas and have to take quite some time. See video commentary hold the exhibit highlights in each area are provided, so even technological innovation relating to events of each era and the ship, but we can understand. Museum rest areas is less, on the edge of the hotel's table and watch all video chairs there is one restroom vending machines as a commitment towards better finished meals away from some may be.

  • On-site photography possible. The exhibition history of NYK line, model, etc. Exhibit contents and volume models large and elaborate. Luxury cruise ship furnishings exhibition was fascinating. I want to so great buildings such as ancient Greece architecture photography can be.
