Ship Facts: Sapphire Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Sapphire Princess Deck Plans
Fabulous Cruise!

Our Dr. told us to take this cruise., and it was seconded by another Dr. too. We had a particularly challenging year with health issues and the Dr.s were right- we needed a vacation! It was a last minute idea to take the cruise and we were treated great by Princess Cruises when we booked. We were able to get a handicap accessible room that was everything we needed. I prearranged for a mobility scooter that was delivered to our state room and could be left there at the end of the cruise to be picked up by the rental company. This made it possible for me to get around the ship easily.

We were disappointed to not be able to get assigned seating for diners because we booked late, but the food in the buffet for breakfast and lunch was more than adequate and very good. Dinners in the other restaurants was very very good. We loved that we could buy a bottle of wine in one restaurant and they would keep it for us to have in another restaurant on another night. Sitting with other people was fun and we got to know people from all over the USA, Canada, Great Britain and Australia.

Embarking was well arranged but required WAY to much walking and waiting in line. Embarking involved travelers for two cruise lines at the same time and that further complicated the process. STRONGLY recommend that anyone who is handicapped to take them up on the offer of a wheelchair!

Disembarking was also well arranged and again involved a lot of walking! I took the wheelchair offered and thought the poor guy pushing it was going to wind up in a different zip code by the time we got to the bus!

The only problem with the cruise was it was too short!
