7 Night Mexican Riviera (Los Angeles Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 23, 2011
Ship: Sapphire Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
For a first time cruiser, everything was perfect. The meals was excellent. I was assigned on the Aloha deck cabin 259 and 255, they were at a great location close to the elevator but with no loud noise, the view was great!

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
All dining rooms were fab. Food is excellent. Cocktails were definitely very weak. Stick to wine and you can bring your own wine and champagne onboard and just pay the corkage fee of $15 if you would like to have it with your meals in the dining room.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
After a 7 day cruise, I still had a hard time navigating through the ship. It was a big ship but all staffs were helpful on providing us with accurate directions. Our steward cleaned and replenished our amenities twice a day. We always had fresh towels. He was very attentive.

Cabin / Stateroom

It was a good size good with a big balcony. It had everything you would need for a week with plenty of storage space.

Definitely take a water taxi and get off at Lover's beach for a stroll. Make sure you bring a ziplock bag to hold your electronics so that they don't get wet when you get off the boat. Bring a towel and your snorkeling gear.
Don't Miss: Lover's Beach
