  3. Sapphire Princess
We have cruised with Princess several times and found them to be excellent. Unfortunately this cruise from Singapore to Shanghai was not. We found the entertainment disappointing and the cruise director didn’t inspire a spirt of enjoyment. The Stevie Wonder show was dreadful; we and others walked out as he started to sing his songs in Japanese! The pool attendants were non-existent with plates left uncollected and no one around to ask if you wanted drinks and also we found very few recliners for the movies under the stars. We have booked another cruise - and hope this will be better. Princess seem to be cutting some of its quality, which is a shame. Please remember guests vote with their feet and wallets. Disembarkation was terrible. The plus point is loyalty rewards, but only worth it if you continue sailing. Please, please, provide good entertainment and enough staff. Gratuities paid but we not did get good service.

Disappointed
