Ahoy cruisers and welcome aboard the Caribbean Princess…. Wrong ship! That’s the life of a true cruiser that you don’t know what ship you’re on. Ahoy there cruisers… what was that! Ahoy there cruisers. Welcome aboard the Sapphire Princess. Come on let’s take a look around. Let’s start off at the very top of the ship on Deck 17. Overlooking the aft pool area. We have the sports court. Let’s take the moving walkway up to the aptly named Skywalker night club. Dance the night away at the onboard disco. So, here at the aft of the ship. We have not just one pool to choose from. We have four. So you can choose your perfect pool. Also, we love to sit out here for sail aways. As it’s really nice to get a full view across the whole aft the ship. Next up, at the front of the ship we’ve got the Sanctuary. Actually, I think you’ll find you call it thank ‘Sanctu-a-ry’ not ‘Sanctu-e-ry’. And here you can enjoy the Zen of peace and quiet. While enjoying the outdoor sunshine. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Oh! Hello there. Welcome to the Lotus Pool. Oh, it’s so relaxing. Did you know that this isn’t part of the Sanctuary and anybody can use it. Even the non-posh people people like me. #ComeBackNew The place to burn all those calories is at the onboard gym which is fully equipped. One slice of cake… two slices of cake… three slice of cake… four… Neptune’s Reef and Pool area is a main pool on board. Here there’s plenty of space to catch some Sun. As well as cool off in the pool or relaxing in one of the two hot tubs One thing we absolutely loved were
Movies Under the Stars. Here you can sit on a comfy Sun Lounger with pillows, blankets and free popcorn. While watching the latest blockbuster movies. There is so much room here on the open decks you’re going to have no problem finding a sunbed. Oh ahoy! I’ll have a Gin and Tonic please! So, just behind me we’ve got a giant conservatory. It”s a solarium so you can enjoy the pool whether it’s hot or cold. The Horizon Cart buffet is smaller than what were used to on other cruise ships. But, we felt had the same amount of choice. The buffet is open for breakfast lunch and dinner. On certain days offers themed menus. Oh yummy! My favourite thing. Desserts on Princess are insane There are some of the best we’ve seen at sea. Let’s go back to the aft the ship and take a look at the two pool areas on the lower decks. There are so many outdoor spaces on this ship and we particularly love this promenade. It’s great for an evening stroll after dinner. Or if you’re in port… just to have a look at some of the beautiful places that you’re going to be coming into . This deck in particular goes all the way around. Which means that you can get some views from the very very front of the ship. Romeo… Romeo… How art thou Romeo. Oh! As you can see were in the Princess Theatre. And it’s huge! Here is where you can see all of the big production shows. As well as visiting comedians and acts. Enjoy a drink at the Wheelhouse Bar. Located just behind the theatre. And if you fancy some retail therapy while you’re on board . Deck 7 is the place for you. Here you can find big name brands and luxury brands. Right down to Princess branded merchandise. You’re sure to find find something that you can take home with you. I’ll have mine shaken not stirred. Grab you favorite cocktail or martini here in Crooners bar on deck 7. So the thing we love about the ship is all of the room. There is literally so much of it. Just look there are so many bars and lounges. For a small ship just holding 2,700 people. This ship has got more bars and lounges than we’ve seen on ships that hold 5,000 people. It is spacious and so roomy. And the so many little nooks and crannies which you can just hide in in relax. It’s really nice. In the Explorers Lounge you’ll find entertainment featuring comedian… live music, game shows and seminars. Say cheese! Here on deck 7 visit the photo gallery where you can buy your photos. Here we have the onboard internet cafe And in Sabatini’s the Italian speciality restaurant. Order your favorite Italian dishes. The fusion lounge is another lounge hosting live music… and also features a secret room downstairs. – And here’s the ship’s lift or elevator.
– Wow. Everybody’s favourite a place. Use the stairs honestly if you’re able to. You will burn so many calories from all that extra food you’re going to be eating. Moving down to deck 6 we have the first of the main dining rooms on board. The International Dining Room. Next we have the Santa Fe Dining Room,
which is the Club Class dining room. This was refurbished in the recent dry-dock. Just next door we have Pacific Moon Dining Room. Another one of the main dining rooms. So here we are in the Piazza. This is the main heart of the ship. It’s three levels of decks full with shopping, eating, relaxing and just chilling out. There’s so much to do here and it’s always alive with a great atmosphere. Coming up to the left we have the friendly
guest services desk. Here you can discuss any problems or any questions you have whilst on board. Moving towards the front of the ship on deck 6 we have a large casino. Next we have the shore excursions desk. As well as the onboard library. At the front of the ship, next to the lower deck of the theatre, … … we have the Churchill Lounge which is a cigar lounge. Going down to deck five now we have the last of the two main dining rooms. The Savoy Dining Room and the Vivaldi Dining Room. So here on Deck five just next to the Piazza we have the International Cafe. Which is open 24 hours a day for complimentary food. Serving things such as; cakes, sandwiches, treats and soup. Oh no! More yummy desserts. Stop tempting me! On Deck 5 we have the Vines Bar which is the wine bar on board. You get free canapés when you order a drink. So next up we have Alfredo’s pizza. Which is the pizzeria on board. It is a sit-down restaurant but it’s complimentary. It’s amazing! We had a delicious meal here and they serve full 11 inch pizzas. It’s so delicious. I can smell the salami from here. So what did we think of the Sapphire Princess? Well we loved it it! It was our first Princess Cruise. First of all we have to say we were so impressed with the food on board. Both in the main dining rooms and speciality restaurants. It really was some of the best quality food we had had at sea. And those desserts. Oh my gosh! They were amazing. The crew on board were incredibly friendly and attentive. Nothing was ever too much. She is an old ship but the drydock refurbishment has really brought the ship up to date. We especially loved the Movies Under the Stars. And also having the solarium. Especially as she is going to be based out the UK for the summer. It’s great for the unpredictable British weather. So that’s it for our tour around the Sapphire Princess. We hope you enjoyed it.
