Overview

Built in 2004 and recently refurbished in March 2018, the 2,670-passenger Sapphire Princess appeals to travelers looking to sail across Southeast Asia, Canada and Europe. With 1,100 crew members on board, the ship provides a more tailored experience than some of its larger competitors. 

The ship's Interior staterooms span 158 to 162 square feet and are appointed with minifridges and flat-screen TVs. Cruisers can also opt for Oceanview and Balcony cabins, as well as Mini-Suite and Suite category staterooms. Club Class rooms offer all the amenities found in Mini-Suites, plus some add-ons like an exclusive dining area and priority embarkation and disembarkation. 

When it comes to dining, passengers can choose from a total of 14 venues, including five main dining rooms, four specialty restaurants and several casual eateries ranging from a poolside pizzeria to burgers and fries.

Activities are equally diverse, ranging from wine tastings to spa treatments to educational lectures through the ship's Discovery at SEA program. In the evenings, Sapphire Princess offers activities like poolside film screenings, dancing at the top-deck Skywalkers Nightclub and games in the casino.

In 2018-19, Sapphire Princess departs from ports in Dubai, London, Rome, Shanghai and Singapore
