This was our first cruise. We chose a mini suite with balcony which was a great choice especially with two children. It was on offer and we couldn’t refuse! Unfortunately due to bad gales in Southampton the ship was unable to depart on time and we ended up missing our first port of call (Bruges) and had an extra day at sea. The ship was unable to turn due to shallow waters and facing inwards at the dock. Not bothered so we just enjoyed the ship instead. Lots to do on board the ship and my son (6) loved the kids club. Food delicious and drinks were excellent and not as expensive as we thought either. The ship was absolutely stunning and the entertainment excellent. We especially loved the live music in the atrium area. Boarding was nice and easy and our cabins were ready. Straight up to the buffet restaurant for lunch. Would love to go on another Princess cruise in the future. Absolutely no complaints!

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


We loved the sapphire princess. The food was excellent as was the entertainment. My son thoroughly enjoyed his time in kids club too and came back with countless items he had been given, made or had won in a competition. I think we needed another suitcase just for this!
Service was excellent
