Title: All good 😊 Summary: We really enjoyed the Sapphire Princess, very similar and equal to P&O (only cruised P&O before). The Cabin (balcony) was spacious and spotlessly clean, as was the rest of the ship. The only slight thing that lets it down is the dated bathroom but this again was spotless and functional. We thought the onboard gratuitous where we’ll over the top and cancelled them when we got onboard. Drinks expensive as well compared to at home....

Title: A fabulous Midnight Sun experience Summary: Our cruise took us along the Norwegian coast to the North Cape and back again to Southampton. When you are booking a cruise such as this you are accepting the fact that nature is not always cooperative and that the best-laid plans can fall apart due to bad weather and the like. Well, however you put it – good luck, good timing or whatever we were treated to the most wonderful evening with the Midnight...

Title: Midnight Sun – Mixed feelings Summary: Regard ourselves as seasoned cruisers, now well into pension age. This review is from a British angle bearing in mind that Sapphire Princess is now registered in London and sailing from Southampton. Successful cruise with good weather, stunning scenery and calm seas. However with each cruise we seem to have more niggles with Princess. MEALS We were on Anytime Dining and had no problem getting a table. The menu selection seems to have been gradually...

Title: Baltic Cruise Summary: This was my 5th Princess Cruise, overall really enjoyable and chose the itinerary as places not been to before, cutbacks are definitely showing, most of the staff friendly and helpful, but in some parts felt like they needed more training, the dining room service was very slow and took almost 2 hours on some nights have had better menus on other ships. The shows were excellent very professional and also the guest entertainers were first...

Title: General Summary: Overall things were brilliant but subtle cutbacks were noticeable. wine prices were absorbitent and I wish to know the corkage rates to bring our own on board please?. Overall to be perfectly honest I was a little disappointed and with another Princess cruise already booked there are shadows of apprehension. I thoroughly enjoy cruising generally

Title: Wonderful Cruise Summary: Parked at the docks with CPS and on the ship in no time. Weather could have been better, meaning the outside spaces on the ship were little used the first couple of days. Good that the middle section of the ship is covered like a conservatory, albeit it does get quite noisy in there, esp when there’s quite a few children on board (it was half term). We elected for Anytime dining which gave us...

Title: Value for money only if you are on the Elite tier! Summary: This was our second trip on a Princess, our first being in2004 so quite a long gap.As we had been on several P and O ships,we were promoted to Elite which is the top loyalty tier.You need to have done at least 15 Carnival cruises within a certain time frame.With Elite you get many benefits such as free internet, shoe shining,free laundry and pressing,priority embarkation and disembarkstion and even a fast track queue at customer...

Title: We love to cruise as and when we can Summary: This is our fourth cruise, our first was back in January 2012 we were then advised to go with Princess for a great introduction to cruising, they were not wrong, the Caribbean was a great start, it was amazing , we were tempted to try other cruise companies but we were timid not confident so we have stuck with Princess because there was nothing to want more of, and although it is a few years...

Title: Fantastic Fjords Summary: Fjords cruise 18th/25th May. We thoroughly enjoyed the cruise from start to finish. Embarkation was excellent and speedy. The Itinerary was excellent only marred by the downpour in Scavangar. We dined mostly in The Savoy having chosen anytime dining. The longest we ever waited for a table was 10 minutes, after having been given a pager. The service and knowledge of the waiters was excellent. The stateroom was spotlessly clean. We always book a balcony...

Title: Princess Summary: Cruise ok but Princess charges extremely high. No wine under $32 and then 18% tip/gratuity. Not on far too high when other cruise lines taking these charges off. Will be looking elsewhere in future. Very sad when always first looked at Princess.

We were very disappointed the menus had all been cheapened had chicken and soggy chips on two evenings.the permanent steak had disappeared and was replaced ed by a burger. Could not believe that a flyer was inserted in the menus offering additional items such h as a steak at additional $19.if we want something...

Title: Rubbish Summary: Arrived home on 23rd Jan 2019 from a 14 day cruise around Asia. Joined ship in Shanghai and it was delayed. We were supposed to board at 1300hrs. But they made excuses, Fog, Port closure, Immigration till this day never been told the truth! So we ended in what can only be described as a ‘Holding Pen’ with the ship in site. No reps from the ship no updates, only local Chines herding you into...

Title: Not good enough Summary: Incomplete information provided on all sales materials – failing to advise that their glass floor “Sea Walk” heavily utilised by all guests – shadow balconies at levels 14 and 15. So paying for a private balcony and unable to use it during the whole trip! Food and service in all three “speciality restaurants” excellent, unfortunately not the same in other main dining areas. Food continually served cold, and massive inconsistency of service, which went from...

Title: An excellent Cruise BUT…………… Summary: 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....

Title: Excellent cruise. Summary: 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...

Title: My first cruise Summary: 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...

Title: Short break – short change Summary: 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...

Title: weekend break Summary: 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...

Title: Mediterranean Cruise Summary: 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....
