We found the Sapphire Princess overall a good ship with excellent service but the entertainment provided was pretty grim. You could walk the length of the ship and hear very similar music in just about every bar with no variation, I know ... Read more

Fabulous cruise and the service was excellent. I had only done a 3 day cruise before. Food was amazing and we preferred the choice at horizon court than the more formal dining. Entertainment was good but very dated music and trivia ... Read more

In Mandarin slang, ma ma hu hu means so so, not very good, or a bit of a mess. This cruise surely met that kind of definition. It ranks in the bottom five of the 40+ cruises we've taken. We joined the ship in Tianjin (aka the middle of ... Read more
