Embarkation was dreadful. From the time of luggage drop it took two and a half hours to reach our cabin. Our basic verandah cabin (never a stateroom, how pretentious) suited us well. The carpet was well worn and the verandah had seen ... Read more

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

We went with Princess again largely because of the 5-day pre-cruise land content in Beijing (for the Great Wall and other attractions) and Xian (for the Terracota Army). We enjoyed the experience with an excellent guide, top hotel ... Read more

Others can tell of the food (good), but I will tell of some surprises. 1. "Hit Me Baby One More Time" is a Britney Spears song that featured early in the first stage show. No matter what the meaning of the song lyric is meant ... Read more

Our 7th cruise, first time on Princess. Our previous cruise was on the Queen Elizabeth, so I'm not sure if it's fair to compare the two ships. I did notice a few areas of tiredness on the Sapphire.....a few places that needed repair ... Read more
