17 Night Grand Asia (Singapore To Beijing)
Sail Date: March 22, 2016
Ship: Sapphire Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: B505
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

We liked the places that we went but in Shanghai, the excursion was a race against time. Also, the cost pour the excursion on your own of Ho Chi Minh City was too much expensive. We didn't understand a word of our guide. Finally the organisation of the ship was very poor. We had no information about where or when we could get out of the ship and many hours were lost because of that.

Food and Dining

Compare to other cruises of Princess, I was not happy about the food served.

The rug was dirty and all changes made on the ship were for the Asian and no consideration for Americans.

Ship Tip

We took the Sapphire two years ago and we should have been informed that it has been changed to accomodate Asian passangers. The Casino, the food, all were changed to be adapted to them. We understand that only the Asian were important on the ship.

We arrived two days before the cruise and enjoyed it.

The excursion was not very good for the price.

We paid 200 $ US so that Princess brings us to the city with a guide that barely spoke English. The price was ridiculous.

We took a postcruise tour offered by Princess and it was excellent. We really appreciated the 3 days and all the places visited. Our guide Ken was exceptional.
