Just went over and read your review...thank you. We sailed on the Sapphire in October and at that time I said it was my favorite Princess ship. Just got off the Emerald for a wonderful ten day cruise and I still say...the Sapphire is still my favorite Princess ship.
It has a better set-up piazza area, a better setup for the International Cafe', we love Alfredos pizzaria and the Horizon Court buffet area flows so much better on the Sapphire with the dessert/pastry area separated. I have always disliked the buffet setup on the larger Princess ships and hope they have made changes to it on the Royal. The buffet always feels so congested...And we loved the four smaller dining rooms on the Sapphire!
We had a very large meet and mingle group from our roll call and no one from the ship was there either which I consider a missed opportunity as we were a large group with many Elites, Platinum, etc and loyal Princess cruisers. Someone said Princess has a separate cruise critic M&M set up for those on their facebook page and officers are present at that. I just join my roll call and have never been aware of anything else until now.
Thanks again for your review!
