For the most part, liked the remodeling, especially the closet - more room and ease of unpacking. Did not like losing the hand held shower nozzle though in the tiny shower. Found the food less enjoyable - seemed like too much mushy stuff ... Read more

I'd like to add a voice of agreement with the negative critique entitled "Ma ma hu hu" posted April 2015. My husband and I also were on the same cruise, and it really was a major disappointment from our past experiences with ... 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

Travelled on this ship when it was fresh out of dock after an overhaul. So don't worry about the worn carpets that are mentioned in another review because most of them have been replaced. Food and service were great, with special thanks ... Read more

For our honeymoon we decided to get a glimpse of another part of the world with the comfort of a cruise. Princess had both the itinerary and timing right. The ship came directly from 10 days in dry-dock but not a word was mentioned ... Read more

Overall we did enjoy our cruise on this huge ship. On the positive side the meals were always good and the staff were mostly attentive and made us very welcome. However we did notice that although hand sanitisers were in place at the ... Read more

Let me start by saying that the Sapphire Princess is one great ship, in fact one of the nicest ships afloat, given its size. The carpet was a little tired as were a few of the other public areas on board, but it was going in for a minor ... Read more

Finding good weather for a cruise in February inevitably involves some long flights, especially if you choose the Far East rather than the Caribbean. We opted for a round trip from Singapore, which was really 3days then 7 days back-to-back ... Read more

We had a mid-ship balcony cabin on Baja, Deck 11. It was smaller than the only other cruise we've done, which was on the Serenade of the Seas and also a mid-ship balcony. That had a couch which could at a pinch sleep a child, and more ... Read more

My husband and I have taken about 50 cruises, 9 of them on Princess so we have a sense of comparison with which to rate the Sapphire Princess. With the exception of the dining room staff, never have we experienced a more disinterested, ... Read more
