Big ship with serious communication issues

Sail Date: March 2014
Destination: Mexican Riviera
Embarkation: Los Angeles

The ship was OK but nothing spectacular. Our cabin was also OK but also nothing special. The buffet food was also OK but it looked and tasted like hospital cafeteria. The various menus in the restaurants were above par. Very good food well prepared and well served. The shows in the big theater were OK but the last one was overdone.

The big issue for us was communication. The diagrams provided at embarkation showed a very poor section view of the ship. No plans. So if you wanted to go to the conservatory for example, there was no way of finding out where it was. We asked several crew members and they also did not know where the conservatory was.

Another strange thing is the area in front of the ship next to the spa. This is an area where an entrance fee Is required. The place is huge but nobody uses it. Because its privileged location and spaciousness it would be great, but we observed that only one person used it during the course of several hours. What a waste of More premium space! Less

Cabin review: Sapphire Princess d311

The mini suite is spacious and comfortable.

Port and Shore Excursions


The ship excursions were OK. But we decided instead to rent electric bicycles. We had a blast?


As we had taken excursions before this time we decided to go to the Los globos flea market..
If you like thrift shopping this is worth a try.
