Ship Facts: Sapphire Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Sapphire Princess Deck Plans
Good food, poor communication

My first time on princess but have cruised several times before. We are 64 and 68. We feared it would be an all geratric crowd but it was mixed...definitely an older group but there were a surprising number of younger people. We tried in vain using the princess website to get more information about services and option on the cruises. Several places said, check with your travel agent. We couldn't find ANY information about what cost extra and what didn't. we read blurbs about Sabbatini and a steakhouse and assumed these were "pay extra" but who would think that some of the coffee was extra. The web site had no information about soda packages, coffee packages, wine packages. We never found how to prepay for transfers through princess.

The food was good. I had excellent steaks in the dining rooms. We signed for late dining but this always seemed to conflict with the shows. The production shows were so_so but the comedians and magic act were good. Backstreet boys were hilarious and I had the privilege of being called out of the audience and dancing with them. That was fun.

Many things were hard to find and the staff rarely knew ANYTHING outside their own little job sphere and several times directed us to wrong places.

Our room was nice and roomy, a minisuite. But the deck above looked right down onto our balcony.
