Ship: Sapphire Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple

This was our first cruise. We had heard many things about ships and cruises before we left, so that's all we had to go by to compare. The Sapphire Princess was all that it was advertised as, and more. We wandered everywhere, and were still finding "hidden gems" on the last day or so. The service was excellent and the cruise was fantastic!
