Not to bore my fellow cruisers , imagine : plastic cups , plates and glasses , a daily programme of bingo, quizzes and kids programmes , food you would normally never want to pay good money for and environment where most of the passengers are crowded into a central area to watch their so called" best " entertainment! "Saphire Princess" is your kind of ship . We hoped for refinement , culture and excellence.. what we got was far far from what we hoped.. such a waste of money .
Lack of Security presence in public areas was alarming , there was definitely some under age drinking going on and young children seemed to be everywhere on the ship!! Most ships have family zones but parents were doing as they please .
We were late arriving at ports , so little time on shore , one port was missed altogether and Princess CHARGE FOR SHUTTLE SERVICE .. Never been charged with any other company.!! Appalling !!
Cabin kept very clean by our stewardess, but it was tired and dated , bathroom needed to be updated urgently.
Spoilt by late arriving , 40 dollar charge for shuttle service and early leaving.. there was little time to enjoy beautiful Bruges
Shuttle service charge if 40 dollars ! Dropped in the middle of the city with no directions ! Difficult to navigate , once again late arriving and had to leave early so no time to explore
We didn't even stop!! Just sailed right on past.
