Ship Facts: Sapphire Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Sapphire Princess Deck Plans
Sapphire Princess Cruise to Hawaii
We sailed from LA on Feb 26. The weather was not great, but that did not stop us. Don't think I would do that destination again as we only had 4 days of sun. It was to cold and rainy to be outside most of the days. We still enjoyed the cruise. We were told the average age on the cruise was 70. Gee I felt young!

We especially like the Crooner's bar. The bartender's Alfredo and Tatiana were great. No one made a Mud Slide like Tatiana and Alfredo made the best Margaritas and Martinis. We had so many mud slides that we were called the Mud Slide girls. I think sales of them were way up because of us! The two waiters, JayMark and Orest were the best. They always had a smile on their face. I think Orest was being moved to Skywalkers for the next cruise. The ship rocked and rolled, but that did not seem to bother anyone. We were not affected by the tsunami (we were heading to Ensenada at the time).

If you get a chance, take the Ultimate Ship Tour. My sister and I did and it was great. We got to see the Medical facility, the Photo Shop, the Print Shop, The Galley, The room where the mooring ropes and anchors are, The Control Room, Backstage at the Theatre and met some of the dancers, and of course the Bridge. The tour is 3 hours long and well worth it. You got a drink and snacks in the galley as well as on the bridge. One of the ships photographer took group pictures along the way and we received them after the tour. We also got a personalized note pad, a chefs jacket and one of the heavier suite robes.

We had a great time and would do it again--only at a warmer time of the year.

All in all it was great. All of the staff always had a smile on their face.

If you get a chance go for it!
