An excellent Cruise BUT……………
By Christopher Harley on 29 October 2018
Princess Cruises | Sapphire Princess Reviews

We left Southampton on time and arrived in our first port Vigo to mixed weather – we did not book any Princess tours/excursions as they were so expensive – our second port of call was supposed to be Madeira but because of Hurricane Leslie we had to miss this port and go directly to our third port Arrecife; We arrived at about 12noon on Saturday but found the local shops all closed at about 5pm....

Excellent cruise.
By Louie Wolstencoft on 29 October 2018
Princess Cruises | Sapphire Princess Reviews

My husband myself and 2 friends arrived back from the Canaries cruise on 21st October. We enjoyed every minute aboard. The crew were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent with plenty of choices at every mealtime. We missed going to Madeira due to the threat of hurricane Lesley but we had 2 days in Lanzarote to compensate. We were able to travel further afield than 1 day allows. On sea...

My first cruise
By Mrs Diane Davies on 23 October 2018
Princess Cruises | Sapphire Princess Reviews

Public seating area’s inadequate at peak times (Cafe and bar area’s) also if you did not allow at least 30 minutes prior to evening shows in the theatre you could not guarantee a seat (standing room only in most cases), followed by a rush at the end to find seating in other entertainment area’s, not a very relaxing experience. Also, sea days could have done with more activities please. However we found the shows were...

Short break – short change
By Matt Andrews on 18 October 2018
Princess Cruises | Sapphire Princess Reviews

Itinerary included a tender visit to Guernsey, which was cancelled before we boarded the ship. The reason given was forecasted high winds. Redirected to Brest, France which was virtually closed being a Sunday, struggled to find a cafe and nearly resorted to going into a Subway. Additionally, the crew had only rigged up one working gangway, which served both on and off. It was not suitable for this level of traffic, especially as at times...

weekend break
By roy gordon on 16 October 2018
Princess Cruises | Sapphire Princess Reviews

Our first cruise with Princess very disappointed. Layout of the ship seemed wrong as there was nowhere to sit that was not connected to a bar Food was basic and staff seemed flustered especially at breakfast. Entertainment was adequate what there was but long gaps where nothing happened except quizzes, which we do not like. Being a weekend trip there were lots of groups who were noisy and often worse for wear. The chosen itinerary...

Princess Cruises | Sapphire Princess Reviews

We had a lovely time on the Saphire Princess. The weather was perfect, the sea very calm. The ship was in very good condition, especially the comfy beds and pillows, just heaven! We were very impressed with the staff. Everyone on the ship went out of their way to be helpful and every request was received with a smile and very helpful response. The food was excellent and served by happy, efficient and knowledgeable staff....

Autumn break on Sapphire Princess
By Mike and Hilda May on 15 October 2018
Princess Cruises | Sapphire Princess Reviews

We left Southamton with gale force winds but by the time we arrived at our first port of call Vigo the sun was shining and the temperature was 27c which we had for the next 12 days. With over 2,500 passengers at times everyone seemed to want to go to the most popular entertainment, you had to arrive early and sit around for ages, so we missed quite a lot, what we did see was...

Mediterranean Adventurer
By Michael Wright on 15 October 2018
Princess Cruises | Sapphire Princess Reviews

Really enjoyed the cruise, couldn’t fault it at all, the service to and from Southampton also excellent, only one gripe, I wasn’t all that keen on Ceuta as a port call, but as Florence and Toulon were places I really wanted to see I overlooked that.

Mediterranian cruise
By R.A.Fisk on 15 October 2018
Princess Cruises | Sapphire Princess Reviews

Excellent cruise on a fine, well organised ship. One complaint only . The theatre is far too small. On every occasion we arrived at the theatre at least 20 minutes before the performance, all seats were taken. Otherwise, a delightful experience.

Baltic Heritage 8th/22nd Sept 2018
By Alan Clark on 01 October 2018
Princess Cruises | Sapphire Princess Reviews

Very happy with cruise. Staff were tremendous- very helpful and happy. The downside was the prices paid onboard the ship. US$ 14.50 per person gratuity is bad enough but to then have to pay a 15% service charge on items such as drinks from the bar does not seem right. In addition one small packet of paper handkerchiefs for the equivalent of £1 is quite eye watering. On the whole however the pluses outweighed the...

Baltic cruise 8th September to the 22
By Keith aston on 01 October 2018
Princess Cruises | Sapphire Princess Reviews

Although the Sapphire Princess is a big ship (same size as Ventura ) the total passenger amount is smaller than the other ships of the same size etc, so plenty of room for everybody, the crew are amazing (as always) captain well informative. Due to not going to Gdansk which again the captain went to great lengths to explain the alternative stop (missed a really bad storm) Only one downside which could cause a real...

First Cruise
By Chris Hatch on 21 September 2018
Princess Cruises | Sapphire Princess Reviews

This was our first cruise and I have to say it was brilliant. From start to finish, everything exceeded our expectations. Embarking and disembarking were seamless, no arriving at airports two hours beforehand. The ship, staff, food and entertainment were excellent, 5 star all the way. The Ocean View cabin was very comfortable, plenty of space for all our clothes and the Queen sized bed was like sleeping on a cloud, best sleep I have...

55th anniversary cruise
By J Reeve on 17 September 2018
Princess Cruises | Sapphire Princess Reviews

Some nice refurb though seating in main restaurants (anytime dining) the couch seating was saggy and torn in places, almost zero seating for two with two chairs. Balcony furniture grubby didn’t seem to be part of cabin cleaning.

Scandinavian Cruise September 2018
By Janice Shuttleton on 17 September 2018
Princess Cruises | Sapphire Princess Reviews

Loved the ship especially room on Plaza deck with window. We normally have a balcony but this was great. Wasn’t that impressed with restaurants food preferring to eat upstairs but felt it could have had tablecloths etc at night like P&O. 4 ports, Brugges, Copenhagen, Oslo and Skagen. First 2 fab, we took an excursion to Flanders which was a very humbling experience then into Brugges which was beautiful. Oslo was good as well but...

No Crow’s Nest bar
By Wendy Homeyard on 17 September 2018
Princess Cruises | Sapphire Princess Reviews

Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our cruise, if you like the Arcadia you’ll like the Sapphire it’s a very comfortable ship. Unfortunately theres no Crow’s Nest bar on Sapphire & I do like a panoramic sea view with my cocktails in fact hardly any of the bars have good sea views. Not sure I like plastic plates & mugs in the buffet restaurant but they are just small gripes.

Majestic Fjords
By Carol Hurley on 28 August 2018
Princess Cruises | Sapphire Princess Reviews

We thoroughly enjoyed seven days on the Sapphire Princess with three generations of family all catered for. The activities on offer left us spoiled for choice, dashing from one end of the ship to the other so that we didn’t miss anything. The food was superb, beautifully presented and served by friendly staff. Our inside cabin was spacious and clean; others in our party had balcony views of the fjords as we sailed in or...

Med cruise
By Alfred Varley on 21 August 2018
Princess Cruises | Sapphire Princess Reviews

July/Aug 14-day Med cruise on Sapphire Princess. This ship is in great shape compared with P&O Cruises Ventura. The weather was good throughout, too warm in some cases (94 degrees outside). The staff were excellent in all departments on board. Some of the food could be improved on, as on all cruise ships these days. Having cruised on most lines we would rate this ship good clean happy ship. Well done Sapphire Princess and its crew.

Mediterranean cruise
By maureen hailes on 20 August 2018
Princess Cruises | Sapphire Princess Reviews

This was only our 2nd cruise with Princess Cruises, all staff were excellent. I wouldn’t say that the dining room food was all that good, even though we went there every night, the steak was very tough, also I could not chew the pork we had one night. They did apologise and offer to get something else. We asked for a table for 2 and were seated in a line of 4 x2 tables which we do...
