Sapphire first RT LA to Hawaii & South Pacific: Sapphire Princess Cruise Review by Delhigirl
Overall Member Rating
Sapphire first RT LA to Hawaii & South Pacific
Destination: South Pacific
Embarkation: Los Angeles
This ship gave the overall feeling of crew not caring - from the wait staff in the restaurants to the coffee shop etc. The only outstanding staff we had was the cabin steward - but this seems to be the case every time we cruise. Another problem the Sapphire had was having the Officer of the Watch make his noon announcement in More an accent that comes out as gibberish to all - since this is a passenger oriented announcement, it should be made by an English speaking person - sorry, but it is a fact! Princess have also decided to raise their gratuities - this would be OK if the service was good - but it seems to be going downhill, this was very much in evidence on this cruise.
However, the ports were great. It was wonderful visiting the South Pacific, although Pago Pago could be given a miss - it was dirty!!! Moorea and Bora Bora were pristine, the water was incredible and the locals friendly. Papeete was interesting with a character of it's own - wonderful open air market and we found a lovely little French Bistro where we had a wonderful lunch - like being in Paris!
That's all folks - interested to hear from others! Less
