No words can describe this excellent ship & our cruise to Scandinavia. Embarkation was speedy & very smooth. The ship was refurbished last year, & it's looking great. New furnishings& carpets were lovely. Inside cabin was large enough, comfortable bed, Egyptian cotton sheets on Queen sized beds were a delight!!! Food in the dining rooms was fine & with good choices. As for the entertainment, rhis is where the sapphire comes into it's own. I have never seen such superb shows both production ones & individual artistes. Standout star was Phil brown who is now in London West end in the lion King. He had the entire audience in the palm of his hands & received a standing ovation which was well deserved. The staging of all the shows both in lighting, sound & sets was incredible you would not believe you were on a ship in the middle of the ocean. As for the itineries, we went to Copenhagen, skagen & Oslo. All of these places were very interesting & luckily the weather was sunny & quite mild. The ship is not too big, about 2800 people, but it never appeared crouded. To conclude, we have been on many cruises over the years, & we can honestly state that this was easily the best, so much so, that when we disembarked we shed a few tears to leave this lovely ship!!!

Fantastic ship!!
