Sapphire Princess offers an indulgent cruise with a ‘Come Back New’ promise. Built in 2004 and renovated in 2012, this 2,678-passenger vessel has a masculine, clubby décor with lots of leather and polished wood. In the Piazza - the heart of the ship – there’s Alfredo’s Pizzeria, where wood-fired pizzas are made to order; Vines wine bar; and International Café. From next year, luxurious new beds will feature a scientifically engineered mattress and bed springs, a plush two-inch pillow-top, European-inspired duvets, and luxurious Jacquard-woven linens.

Cabins are a bit bigger than aboard similar ships in the Princess fleet, but come with the same basic layout and décor of earth tones, off-whites, and light woods. 748 of the 1,337 passenger cabins feature private balconies. Inside cabins range from 168 to 182 sq ft; Oceanview from 183 to 194 sq ft and Balcony cabins from 237 to 300 sq ft. Mini-Suites with balcony at 354 sq ft are highly recommended. Suites ranging from 507 to 706 sq ft include larger balconies, whirlpool tubs and bar. At the top of the line is the Grand Suite, clocking in at 1,329 sq ft.

Traditional dining, with fixed times for early or late seating, is offered in the International Dining Room and Vivaldi Dining Room. The ‘Anytime Dining’ concept operates in the Santa Fe Dining Room; Pacific Moon Dining Room and Savoy Dining Room. An innovation in all the dining rooms is cuisine designed by award-winning chef Curtis Stone, prepared with the most authentic ingredients. Sabatini’s features northern Italian cuisine, while the Sterling Steakhouse serves the highest quality meats and seafood. The buffet-style Horizon Court is open 24 hours a day and there’s a poolside Trident Grill for burgers and pizzas.

Bars come in several varieties on Sapphire Princess, all of them cosy and many offering excellent sea views such as the Wake View Bar which overlooks the stern, as does the Observation Lounge and Skywalker's nightclub on the top deck. With its nautical art, the Wheelhouse Bar has a club-like atmosphere as well as live jazz. The cabaret-style Explorer's Lounge has an African theme and features singing and dancing acts, as well as occasional magicians and comedians. The Princess Theatre features full-on, dazzling musical productions.

There are pools to suit every age and mood, including Neptune's Reef & Pool - a spacious open-air area with colourful mosaics and lots of space for soaking up the sun. There’s also a secluded Terrace Pool at the stern on Aloha Deck; an adults-only fitness pool; indoor Calypso Reef & Pool, covered by a retractable glass roof; and a kids-only wading pool. ‘Movies Under the Stars’ screens films during the day and night.
