We typically travel suite class. Because it has been going where we want to go, when we want to go, we've been traveling Princess. The Sapphire Princess is a large ship! The disadvantage is that it often is berthed in a cargo area of the ... Read more

No comparison to other cruise lines food was repetitive and average although the Crab shack was great but you paid extra for it. Entertainment was poor and activities were repetitive and targeted for elderly people only. Constant change ... Read more

We enjoyed the cruise; as usual the staff were great & are Princess's greatest asset. The food was good in both the dining room & The Buffet, probably some of the best buffet food we have had on any ship. We thought our mini ... Read more

** OVERALL RATING (FAIR) – two stars based on a 5 star rating. We would not take a cruise on this ship again. There are too many other choices, and better to spend a little extra for a quality ship and quality experience. ** ... Read more
