Review summary

Another excellent cruise on the sapphire princess. 3 last year and 3 this year. My favourite ship and crew in fleet. Probably my most eventful cruise. Helicopter medi vac. A first. Port divert to vigo on way back for another medivac. 2nd time. Missed a port to try and avoid bad weather. Lanzarote. 4th time. Others greenland and madeira twice. Arrived in southampton nite b4 to avoid bad weather. Gale force winds and very rough seas. Saying that an excellent cruuse. Luvly set of passengers some of whom i met on board last year and will see some on board in july and on the crown next year. Made a lot of new crew mates. Lots were on board last year and will be again in july and october.
