Four Thumbs WAY UP!
Destination: Mexican Riviera
Embarkation: Los Angeles
We've only been back home for 6 days, and haven't completely unpacked. I had to get all our memory cards downloaded so I could put a jammed packed Hallmark Smilebox together to share with family and friends.
We had a blast the entire cruise. Sapphire Princess is Beautiful, as is all their staff / crew. Each and every single person working on board was always smiling, greeting us with "Good Morning" or "Good what ever time of day / night". Seven days wasn't long enough. Ten days would be great, Fourteen days PERFECT (I think). Our luggage was at our stateroom, and before we could get our key card in the door, our precious beautiful Stateroom Steward greeted us from down the hall, by Mr. Dave and Mrs. Sandi! How cool is that? Always greeting us with a smile, and How was your day / night / dinner / etc. We are going to stay in touch now via e-mail / FB / SKYPE. The Princess Patter is delivered late at night and allows you to see what is available to do on the ship, and I More brought a yellow highlighter to mark lots of activities. Eating, Movies, Workshops, Eating, Photos, People Watching, Spa, Eating, Whale & Dolphin watching from our balcony, wine before dinner, .... we didn't have time to relax. Our favorite waiter has the greatest ever ready smile, and so glad we were in his section. Eugene works so hard, so fast.. 7 days a week, 10 months a year. I don't know how they do it! Can't say enough positive about our first cruise. We truly give it our 4 thumbs up!!! ....however professional photos too expensive per sheet, and so sad that those precious moments captured in beautiful photos are simply discarded once passengers disembard. Wish they could offer a $50-$75.00 package of 5 sheets. I'm sure many more people would buy their photos. The photos were always displayed top to bottom, very organized. Great organization each and everyday. From going to our Muster Station for our safety lessons, to every show, concert, comedian act, movie, Zumba, meals on time, tender arranging, dropping off & coming back to the ship, excursions, .....well, Princess Crew does everything top notch! Can't wait to cruise again ASAP Less

Cabin review: BAB123 Balcony
So glad we chose a balcony room. We were able to sit / stand over looking the ocean, spotting the rising sun, the moon, the fantastic colorful sunsets, whales, dolphins, and ports that we pulled into. Our room was plenty spacious, and I was thrilled that there were enough hangers for the clothes we brought, shelves for folded items, the in room safe, spacious shelves in bathroom, quick flushing toilet, small shower (but fine shower head), wall mounted hair dryer, high wall mounted flat screen t.v. w/ remote, small fridge with ice filled bucket, and best of all...........the rubberized mat that lays across the end of the bed when you plunk your suitcases down! So smart! Daily the fabric style bed liner was layed out, keeping us aware of just using the covered space on the bed. Brilliant!!! Only one electric outlet in main room, one in bathroom wasn't enough. I knew about that so brought a surge protector / electrical outlet cord from home. This way we could charge our camera, phone and use a flat iron easily. I also was told to buy and use an over the door plastic pocket / shoe holder for hair supplies. Great idea, and I found mine at the Dollar Store. I had a yellow highlighter with me to mark the fun activities we wanted to do each day...easy visual when looking at the daily amazingly fact filled well done Princess Patter. Super darkening shades made our room really dark, and the rocking motion of the ship moving lulled us to sleep quickly. Awoke to bright mornings, rarin' to go!Read All Balcony (BA) Reviews >>
