Sapphire Princess Cruise Review by pa1943ma
- Sail Date: June 2019
- Destination: Baltic Sea
- Cabin Type: Interior
All the other ports of call were very scenic. The Norwegian Fjords are awesome ! We really did not take any excursions from the ports as there was much to see right there ! At Geiranger and Lofotin Islands, we took some excursions offered by local bus tours but not any offered by Princess as they were too costly.
The worst part of the cruise was lack of quality food options for vegetarians. There was only one choice for main dish every night and most of the time, it was not well prepared. Vegetarians can eat many Italian dishes ( cheese ravioli, pasta primavera, quiche and Indian dishes ). I do not understand why they add meat to salads and soups! I am glad at least the deserts have no meat!
The Sanctuary was hardly used by people for whom it was intended. Make that space available to all.
There were only 2 formal nights as against 3 advertised.
There should have been enrichment lectures on Astrology (Midnight sun) and Geology as we were in the arctic circle , going thru the fjords and oil rigs in the North Sea.
We enjoyed the cruise very much because of the choice of the poarts, fantastic scenery and Mid Night Sun!

BergenWe were very disappointed as the time was very short and could not do any meaningful excursions. The city does not provided any free toilets in the very crowded Bryggen area.View All 635 Bergen Cruise Port Reviews
Even with 10 krona's, the toilets are poorly maintained..

FlamWe decided against the train as we had taken many mountain trains before and this was costly and also fully booked months in advance. We really enjoyed our hike to Brekkefossen Falls.View All 226 Flam Cruise Port Reviews
