There's a couple of things I find are issues with the South China Sea.

The risk measures for Kazakhstan are identical to those for Russia, across seven different indices. Highly unlikely to be a coincidence - more likely someone has used the wrong figures by mistake. These are apparently sourced from the Economist - a link to the original data would help with checking which is correct.

More of an problem from the data visualisation perspective is the land elevation diagrams. I find these confusing alongside the route diagram. The elevation diagrams show the route from left to right - but because the journey runs pretty much East-West, this would make a lot more sense shown in the opposite direction.
