Top five reasons to cruise on the Sapphire Princess
- Lotus Spa
At the tranquil Lotus Spa you can sip on iced cucumber water before being pampered with a facial, detoxifying wrap or relieving acupuncture. The spa also performs botox and other skin treatments to have you looking and feeling your best before you disembark.
- At Play
In the mood to have some fun? Perfect your aim on the ship’s nine-hole putting course (Princess Links), master your swing using the virtual golf simulators, enjoy some fresh sea air while playing shuffleboard, or enjoy some friendly competition with a range of court sports.
- Princess Theatre
The lavish, two-story Princess Theatre puts on a range of energetic and entertaining shows each night including live music, dance performances and the latest movies.
- Take A Dip
You’re spoilt for choice with swimming options on the Sapphire Princess. Take your pick from the Calypso Reef and Pool, Neptune's Reef and Pool, Terrace Pool, Swim-against-the-current lap pool, and a range of hot tubs.
- Tie the Knot
Couples wishing for a wedding at sea can get hitched at the ship’s Hearts & Minds Wedding Chapel.
Perhaps the most impressive aspect of dining on a Sapphire Princess cruise is the consistently high quality of dishes. Passengers can opt for Traditional Dining, which offers the classic cruise experience – a set, reserved sitting and the same waitstaff and dining companions for the duration of the cruise. Traditional Dining cruisers enjoy meals in the lavish surroundings of the ship's main dining hall.
Anytime Dining (available on most ships) is for passengers who prefer a bit more flexibility in when, where and with whom they dine each evening between 5.30pm and 10pm. Whichever dining option you select, you'll be spoilt for choice with top quality meat and seafood dishes, a range of vegetarian and healthy lifestyle options, and expertly prepared appetisers and desserts – it's like eating out in a different restaurant every night.
For rare, medium or well done succulent steaks cooked to perfection, the Sterling Steakhouse is a New York style restaurant well worth a special night out. Prefer something a little more intimate and romantic? The Ultimate Balcony dining experience includes a multi-course meal served on your balcony by a team of wait staff just for you. The Ultimate Balcony is available at breakfast or in the evening, if you're staying in a balcony cabin. A per-person service charge applies in all speciality restaurants.
When you don't have time for a three-course meal, the ship has a range of casual eateries including Prego Pizzeria, Trident Grill, Sundaes ice cream bar and more.
24 hour room-service is available for all passengers from a special room-service menu; additional per-item charges apply.
Passengers with allergies or special dietary needs are advised to inform their travel agent at the time of booking. Kosher meals are available on request and subject to availability. Vegetarian, low-sugar, low-sodium and low-fat dining options can be preselected online prior to departure.
The evening dining dress code is smart casual and there are formal nights on all cruises of four days and longer.
Onboard kids and youth programs cater for cruisers age 3 to 17 years. Activities are arranged according to three age groups, each enjoying activities designed specifically for them. Princess Pelicans aged 3 to 7 years and Shockwaves aged 8 to 12 years take part in arts and crafts, scavenger hunts, theme parties, disco nights, talent shows, behind-the-scenes ship tours, afternoon ice cream, kids-only dinners and more. Remix is cruising that 13 to 17 year olds will love – sports competitions, late-night film screenings, hip hop dance lessons, PlayStation 2 games, casino nights, DJ workshops, dance parties, mocktail parties and more will mean you might not see much of your teenagers at all.
The Princess Teen and Youth Program is staffed by youth activities coordinators as well as youth security staff during peak times for parents' peace of mind.
Group sitting is available for children aged 3 to 12 years between 10pm and 1am for a nominal per-child charge. Onboard Teen and Youth Centres are open on port days between 8am and 5pm, no additional charge.
