Sapphire Princess Pacific Coastal Cruise

Sail Date: April 06, 2013

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

While the Sapphire Princess is a beautiful ship it proved to be difficult to navigate from Upper decks to specialty dining rooms. The mini suite was very comfortable and spoiled us for any future cruises but the bathtub was a bit awkward to get into and a nice larger shower would have been better choice.
The dinning experience was good but not the level of Celebrity which we usually cruise.
All of the ports were great and all had something for everyone, but Catalina was a lot of fun as we rented a golf cart to tour the island on our own.
We'd recommend this cruise to friends and family.

Better than it used to be but still requires transport to shopping area of city which it had.


"Anytime Dinning" really means any time after 7:45 otherwise reservations must be made prior to sailing.
