Better than the pictures!

Sail Date: June 10, 2006

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

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!

Pros: Dining Service

Cons: Lack of available non-carbinated soft-drinks, like lemon aid

Ship Quality
The ship was beautiful and well-maintained.
Lots of places to relax and enjoy the scenery.
Food and Dining
Every meal was delicious and well presented.
Cabin / Stateroom
Super clean and comfortable. The balcony was great.
Service and Staff
Everyone at every level was happy and friendly, especially the dining staff.
Top rate shows!
