Ship Facts: Sapphire Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Sapphire Princess Deck Plans
The only way to vaccation
This was our first cruise, as our oldest had just graduated from university we wanted to do something different to celebrate.

The ship met most of our expectations as did the dining options. We found the main dining rooms quite pretentious with unfriendly atmosphere but the food was good and made the experience bearable for us.

we had higher expectations of the activities but as first time cruisers we were not at all prepared for themed nights which we would have loved to attend.

Our room was sufficient but the beds were the hardest I have ever slept on (although it did seem to cure my back problem)

Requested fruit to be delivered daily and it took 2 days and we only got one delivery.

Be wary of the hard selling spa ladies they use lines like were fully booked and we only have 2 spaces left then book you in for an appointment within less than 24 hours, when you try to cancel or defer the appointment they charge you half the price and insist that you need 24 hours to cancel. My husband took it up at the desk pointed out that there was not 24 hours between booking and the appointment. They eventually refunded the hundred dollars.

On the whole we enjoyed the whole experience it is amazing how you hardly ever feel crowded with almost 3000 guests and 2ooo staff onboard.

We first had 3 ports booked as part of the itinery but due to issues in Mexico they cancelled one port and we stayed in Cabo for 2 nights instead.

The staff are polite and friendly
