Sapphire Princess

Sail Date: December 15, 2013

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Cabin: GUAR

Overall, pretty underwhelming.  Food was disappointing and the ship is looking pretty dated.  More concerning was the lack of apparent cleaning of the public spaces.  We never saw anyone wiping down the elevator buttons or handrails despite the fact that there was a virus impacting a lot of the passengers.  It was our first cruise with Princess and will unfortunately be our last.  We'll stick to Royal Caribbean or Celebrity.

Ensenada not very interesting. only went to Cabo which was beautiful for snorkeling but overpriced
San Pedro (Los Angeles), California
Departure was a breeze. Customs on arrival was miserable. Non US citizens had to wait in line as citizens got cleared first. Very unfair and never had that happen before.
Ensenada, Mexico
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico Didn't make it to PV unfortunately


pizza restaurant became a staple.
