Ship Facts: Sapphire Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Sapphire Princess Deck Plans
A day in the life of Sapphire Princess
We took this cruise to upgrade our Captain's Circle status. This is our third cruise on Sapphire Princess (Australia, Alaska) and it is our favorite ship and feels like home. We have now had balcony, oceanview and interior staterooms. Princess upgraded us to a higher deck but stateroom was midships adjacent to the stacks - didn't bother me but some might prefer a different location.

Embarkation was a disaster - they said the ship was late arriving and the Canada Place setup was chaos. They sent us down an elevator, across a parking lot and up the back way, even though we didn't start the line until after 3. Leaving on Saturday, the ship was packed as were the two others sailing that day (Holland America and Celebrity). Sailing and boat drill were delayed. Once on board, though, we were quickly relaxed by the familiar surroundings. I particularly like the fact that the anytime dining is split into 4 smaller restaurants rather than 2 big ones. Same menu as the night before on Golden Princess, but with subtle variations. The show was Piano Man - an excellent cast with the best rendition of the four times I've seen it, and always enjoyed it. Disembarkation went smoothly. Would definitely sail this ship again.
