Sapphire Princess Cruise Review by uscdrm
- Sail Date: August 2018
- Destination: Baltic Sea
- Cabin Type: Balcony
We selected the early fixed time dining and walked past the long line of Anytime Diners as we went to our table in the Pacific Moon dining room. There were 2 other couples at our table who we enjoyed getting to know during the cruise and had many enjoyable conversations. Our 2 waiters were very professional, and we all wanted to take them home. The meals were excellent except for the steak dishes, which were not up to the same quality as the other selections. The Horizon Court buffet had a good selection but was very crowded on a few days.
We went on excursions at every port and especially enjoyed the train in Flam, the ice bar in Gravdal and and trip to Mt. Dalsnibba. Our only complaint is some of the guides spoke English with an accent that was hard to understand.
We went to all the shows that varied from outstanding for the professional entertainers to average for the ship variety shows. The biggest weakness of the whole cruise was the limited seating in the theater compared to the population of guests and, therefore, the need to get to the theater at least 50 minutes ahead of time to snag 2 seats next to each other.
I would have liked to have some presentations about the history of Norway and the current political situation. The talks we went to were from a tourist perspective or really boring.
The disembarkation went smoothly and we were delighted to see our luggage waiting for us when we got off the ship.
