Accommodation

Offering a broad range of suites and mini-suites, Sapphire Princess provides generously sized staterooms and balconies to fit any budget. Ranging from 162-777 square feet in size, each stateroom is the perfect place to unwind. Your steward will take care of everything you need from refreshing your room every day to turning down the bed in the evening. We offer the deluxe amenities you'd expect from a first-class hotel — from 24-hour room service to chocolates on your pillow at night.

Decks
Dining

The Princess chefs are true culinary artists who insist on serving the very finest cuisine - and it shows. The entire fleet has been inducted into the prestigious Chaîne des Rôtisseurs gastronomic society. Each chef's menu is creative and the selections change every day. Pair that with impeccable service and you're in for an unforgettable gourmet experience.

Entertainment

To say the night-life on-board is entertaining is an understatement. Illuminating the stage in captivating productions, Princess Cruises performers are some of the most talented musicians, singers and dancers at sea. Our Princess Signature Shows, lounge performers, movies and casinos are just some of the entertainment our guests enjoy as they escape completely.

Health and fitness

The many activities on-board our ships are designed to stimulate, educate, entertain, inspire and sweat - not necessarily in that order. But, guests can be sure crew onboard will do their best to cover all the bases. From art auctions to The Sanctuary Spa, this ship is loaded with fun things to do.

Kids and Teens

Passengers ages 3 to 17 will enjoy many exciting on-board activities. The Youth Centres and Teen Lounges are staffed by experienced counsellors, who are ready to ensure the youngest cruisers stay happy all day long. There’s everything from art projects, game tables, the latest movies, pizza parties, talent shows, video games, and much more.

Children under the age of 3 are welcome to visit the Youth Centre, if accompanied and supervised by a parent at all times.

Enrichment

When is a cruise an opportunity to enrich? When it's a Princess cruise. This ship offers area lectures, art exhibits and classes taught by local experts.
