Overview Itinerary
The Ship
Sapphire Princess sailed into the Princess Cruises Fleet in 2004 as the twin sister ship to Diamond Princess. Sapphire Princess brings together a range of facilities for a wide range of cruisers, including family holidays, couples and luxury cruising. She can often be found cruising the exotic waters around the coasts of Asia, keeping full steam ahead with the Princess Cruises flare for perfection, whilst bringing together some of the best facilities from across the fleet. Receiving a full refurbishment in 2012 only reinforced and developed her appeal within the fleet, with the addition of a number of new facilities that have been established on the newer ships such as Movies Under The Stars and the adult only area The Sanctuary. Sapphire Princess has a quintessential charm that offers a desired mixture of the old and the new that is rarely seen on ships anymore, and it is this that will keep you coming back for more.

Princess Cruises are passionate about the food they serve, and this is clear throughout the fleet. Chefs serving the finest ingredients to create the most inspiring flavours and culinary masterpieces, there will be something different each day to tickle your taste buds. With the option to dine your way, at your time in the restaurant of your choice means total flexibility to enjoy your cruise your way. Dine traditionally at a set time, exceptional service provided by your waiter throughout the cruise, and share your experiences with like similar like minded people on your table. If you prefer something more flexible, Sapphire Princess offers you the chance of Anytime Dining allowing you to dine at a time that suits you and meet new friends each day. Speak to your consultant about the best option to suit your needs. Fancy something a bit different one night? Then why not book yourself into one of the speciality restaurants found on board Sapphire Princess. Sabatini's Italian restaurant is a firm favourite on ship, showcasing rustic, authentic cuisine from around the Mediterranean in a casual and relaxed environment. The Crown Grill is the place to be at sea to receive tender succulent steaks cooked just how you like them, being awarded 'Best Cruise Ship Steakhouse' by USA today.

Take some time and relax over some exquisite wine conversing with new and old friends in one of the many lounge bar areas such as Wheelhouse Bar or Crooners Bar or even relax with a fine brandy in Churchill's Lounge whilst watching some of the latest sporting events. For the young, and young at heart, head up to the top deck where you can find Skywalkers Nightclub, a place where you can let loose and dance the night away.

Entertainment
