Camellia Line Customer Reviews

  • "Great trip"

    A quiet evening/ night. Everything closes at 22:30. There's no bar and the food looked soso and expensive so bring water and food! You can use the microwave after the kitchen closes at 9pm ISH. There is a water opposite room 320 on 2nd class. The first class cabin is like p and o ferry economy window class. But comfortable and with space. The baths were fantastic.

  • "Positive experience!"

    I took Camellia Line from Fukuoka to Busan, and really enjoyed the experience! The cabins were nice and allowed for some rest, but there were also entertainment, food and even a japanese bath on board. Thank you!

  • "Smooth sailing, trouble in Port. "

    I was travelling with my mother who is 78. Neither port seems to have special assistance. It would have been very useful to have wheelchair assistance to help us board and disembark. The journey itself was excellent. We had booked a deluxe cabin so that we could rest up. The cabin was comfortable and well equipped.
