First Med cruise and first cruise with Princess. It exceeded our expectations. Everything was perfect. Staff were so nice. Food was fantastic. The activities and shows were all very good. Such nice treatment from all the crew. We met people from all over the world. This cruise had started in Singapore, picked up some more people in Dubai and then Rome, where we got on.
10 days of spoiling from all the crew on Sapphire Princess. The excursions were very good, we took the one to Juno beach. It was fantastic, and they had a speaker on the D-day landings, aboard the ship. The excursion in Portugal to Sintra and Cascais was excellent. It was so beautiful, both places. We really enjoyed Gibraltar and Monaco.
The International cafe in the piazza was fantastic. All the restaurants, provided excellent service, everyday. The food was hot, and very good. We ordered Room service every morning and it always arrived promptly.
It was our first inside cabin and we really liked it. This cabin was all by itself was very quiet, however it turned out it was above the theatre, so we could hear the band's practising and performing. It was a bit close to the front, so we heard and felt the anchors go down when we tendered, which was only once. Two days the seas were very rough, and you could certainly feel the sway, although it did not bother us. Lots of room for storage and to hang your clothes.
