Ports were interesting by mdindl

We were on board for both Cruises - Nov 28th and the following until Dec. 18th. On both Cruises we DID NOT GET AN INVITATION TO THE CIRCLE PARTY. On the first cruise I found out by Chance and talked to the Circle Hostess about it and she said that she prints out the invitations and the room Steward has to put them on the Slot by our door. On the second cruise the same Thing happened again. This time the Circle Hostess - it was a different one - was exceptionally unfriendly when I confronted her with this recurring Problem. Again she put the blame on the room Steward. Upon disembarkation I found the Name tag from our cabin with my Statement and it had the colour BLUE - first time cruisers. I have not noticed this before because it was quite dark in the hallway. I was unable to find out what was going on - because actually we were as Elite Members in the Computer. Could it be that - because we do not like to have the tips put on our Statement but do our own tipping - we are being ignored and on purpose not invited to this functions??? Overall the experience on the Sapphire Princess has not been great. It seemed that generally the staff from Top down did not really care about anything at least that was the feeling we had. No Supervision.

Great itinerary by rverbois

Verified Review

The beds and the bedding were excellent. Please replace the hair dryers- the ones in the cabins lacked power. The mini suite was very spacious.

Awesome Cruise to Norway by macivy

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Great cruise with the most beautiful landscapes and scenery. We had the best weather possible. All the excursions we took were wonderful although I thought the prices were rather high. The North Cape was a highlight of the trip for us. The ship was well designed.

Wonderful experience on Sapphire Princess by rick158

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

An absolutely wonderful cruise on the beautiful Sapphire Princess. The ship is in good shape after its recent dry dock. New beds are very comfortable. Food and service were great in both dining rooms and Horizon Court. Paul Burton was simply marvelous in Crooners.

Norwegian Fjords were 100% perfect! Princess cruise line....not so much. by cubsivy1

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The ports of call and natural beauty of the fjords is unmatched. One of our top 3 cruises EVER! Princess Cruise lines has made a lot of cutbacks....it seems. Things that seemed a little off: No activities around pool on sea days, smaller food selection in buffet, cleanliness in public restrooms and elevators not up to par, lackluster entertainers--except for Bravo--last night of cruise.

A comfortable way to experience the Baltic by MelissaGill

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

This cruise is geared towards an Older clientele. Which is not to say that someone in their 20s and 30s couldn't find it entertaining, just that it is a more relaxing and quiet type of cruise. More moderate energy levels. The bands and DJ's kept to a more moderate and older theme. Even the Nightclub never made it out of the 70s and 80s as a general rule and had a croud only 2 nights of the 14.

Norway cruise by monaburden

Verified Review

The ports were great and everyone will love Norway. We thought the food was just ok and liked about 1/2 of the shows with the dancing and the band. The rest were sort of slow.

Worst cruise experience ever!!! by kincp

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Total disappointment!!! The cruise line had sold large amount of cabins to a group of uneducated people. Some of them acted like scavengers!! Inconsiderate for others. It was the worst cruise experience we had ever had!!

Sapphire Princess by EileenCheng

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

I loved this cruise because of the itinerary, it is nicely space out between at sea and at port. One day at sea and one day at port. It is very relaxing meanwhile you can see a lot. I will definitely go again if there is a similar itinerary.

Trip to Asian by boutinlouise

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

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.
