We wanted to visit the South Asian ports on this 20 day cruise and check them off our list to see. The ports o call were average with some exceptions. Some were very 3rd world and not very clean. Phuket was the worst. We have sailed all over the world including last year to NZ & AUS and the cruise and ports were outstanding. The food on the Sapphire was not as good as on the Sun Princess. Not very tasty lacking in menu selections with many of the same things offered every meal. Dinner seating being only 60% around our table reflected the lack of menu selections We and others went to the Lido Deck to eat instead of the dinning room. We are not big eaters but what we do eat should be flavorful and with several selections. Some items were the same every day listed as "Special" The Sun Princess chief now has transferred to the Royal Princess so I expect the food there is grest. We really enjoyed the meals aboard the Sun Princess last March 2018.

Good Cruise

Cabin Review

Cabin P325
Good cabin but dated furnishings. Cabin service was very good and kept in order. Room service menu selections were lacking.
