Sapphire Princess - California Coastal

Sail Date: March 31, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Balcony

Great cabins. The recent refit of Sapphire really makes it shine. This ship is a great choice for west coast cruises.

Likes: food quality is fairly good. Great stewards and deck staff. Cabins are nice. Really liked the speciality restaurants, cafe and coffee bar, pools, deck chair options.

Dislikes: spa staff; passenger demographic; art and boutique sales; performers.

Pros: Beautiful ship, fun itinerary

Cons: Ensenada is a terrible port; lots of seniors on this cruise

Recommends Sapphire Princess? Yes!

Children's Programs
My 15-year old really enjoyed hanging out in the teen center until 1 a.m. each night.
Entertainment
Shows were all missable. Indigo is a solid cruise ship band. Other acts were fine. Nothing special in terms of activities.
Ship Quality
Terrific layout. The whole ship is in great shape.
Food and Dining
Don't miss Alfredo's pizza, Sterling Steakhouse, Sabatini's, International Cafe. Main dining rooms are so so and the Horizon's buffet is weak.
Cabin / Stateroom
Mini-suites are a great option.
Service and Staff
Excellent stewards and waiters on deck. Waiters in the anytime dining rooms were hit and miss. Princess needs to work a lot on making that dining system work better so that staff aren't overwhelmed.
