Sapphire Princess Cruise Review by bschottmi
- Sail Date: June 2019
- Destination: Baltic Sea
- Cabin Type: Balcony
The scenery was fantastic - better than I envisioned. We had a mid forward balcony cabin on the Lido deck, a very convenient location since no stairs or elevator wait for the buffet, pool area or grill. Waking up in the morning seeing the mountains of a fjord off your balcony was fantastic. The size of this ship was nice. Very few lines for anything, yet enough people.
We booked Princess excursions at each port. In retrospect, we might have been better off checking which ports had hop-on/hop off services and just used that for a general sightseeing tour. Having said that we were NOT disappointed with any of our shore excursions.
The entertainment on board was very good. 4 production shows that were all top notch.
The main dining room food was excellent. Yes, Princess is cutting back a bit on Lobster night (a single lobster tail) and I'm sure some people are put off by the *optional* $19 upgrades offered some evenings, but we just ignored them and enjoyed the standard menu. Wait staff was excellent - very attentive to our requests. We were able to have a table for 2 in Anytime Dining each night.

Tromso Highlights TourTour of the town dragged a bit as our main interest was seeing the ski jump. That worked out very well as they were practicing and one of the jumpers came over and talked to us. I could have skipped the town trolley ride, but it was all in the package.View All 32 Tromso Highlights Tour Reviews
