Sapphire Princess, like the majority of ships in Princess' fleet, offers affordable outside and balcony cabins: More than 70 percent of the ship's cabins are outside, and 78 percent of these feature private verandahs (748 of its 1,337 total passenger cabins).

All cabins are outfitted with flat-screen TV's that, depending on locale, includes channels like CNN, BBC, Discovery, ESPN and the like. Princess shows movies (flicks from the past few years and classics) on two channels; we especially love the line's romance channel, which on our trip offered showings like "The Philadelphia Story" and "Sleepless in Seattle."

Standard interior cabins, at 168 to 182 square feet, feature a roomy closet, shelves hidden behind a mirrored door, shower-only bathroom, twins-to-queen bed underneath a mirror surrounded by pastel padding, a small table off to the side for room service or other items, small refrigerator, private safe, and a desk area with a large mirror and TV with remote control. Standard outside (oceanview) cabins include these same amenities but measure 183 to 194 square feet -- and, of course, feature a view. An outside with a balcony is just that: an outside room with all of the usual amenities, plus a private verandah (237 - 300 square feet).

On all cabins with standard balconies, furnishings include two blue mesh chairs (quite comfortable) and a small round metal side table.

Mini-suites with balcony (354 square feet) are, in essence, a longer version of a balcony cabin. Mini-suites add a seating area with Pullman couch, cocktail table, bathrobes, corner chair, an extra TV and, of course, a private verandah. However, most mini's are located on Dolphin Deck and, as such, feature verandahs that jut out from the side of the ship (rather than being nestled into it); this means that there's no roof, and therefore Dolphin Deck verandahs are anything but "private." You (and it) are completely visible from decks above (verandahs on the Caribe deck also jut out, though not as far, and are about halfway exposed).

Suites (507 to 706 square feet) include additional space, walk-in closets, larger balconies, whirlpool tubs and a wet bar. At the top of the line is the Grand Suite, clocking in at 1,329 square feet. This accommodation adds a dining area and personal computer.

There are two connecting family suites on this ship (each with two bathrooms), and 27 handicap-accessible cabins.

Bathrooms in mini-suite-and-above categories are quite comfortable (featuring full tubs) and stocked with Lotus Spa-original shampoos, soaps, conditioners and creams. The hair dryer (available in all cabins) isn't wonderful; pack your own if you require power.

Balcony furniture becomes high quality -- and there's more variety -- as you move up the category scale.

Every cabin deck has a self-service laundry facility -- a nice touch.

December 2014

For us the cabin was in a perfect position midship so no sway and very quiet. Fully obstructed by lifeboat but were not bothered by that as still light coming in window during day. Very comfortable bed, plenty of storage space and adequate bathroom. Cleaned to a high...continue

This is the rearmost port side cabin on deck 10. As a consequence it includes an extra triangle of deck space that gives a suite handrail width and allows a partial view of the wake.

The cabin itself is fine albeit a bit small for a balcony cabin and the...continue
