Sapphire princess- Norway 10-17august

Recommended Posts

Semi live trip report dependant on WiFi signal which is a bit hit and miss.

We have cruised with Princess a number of times, including the same itinerary.

We were delayed leaving Southampton but we were kept informed.

Ship is looking a bit tired but is clean, staff on the most part are happy and friendly.

As mentioned many times on CC boards the cutbacks are noticeable, menu choices, portions etc.

Classic soda package available, it includes mocktails which I will endeavour to taste test 😄

It was mentioned on a post last week about children loyalty status, on this cruise Children are still given a blue cruise card regardless of status and ours don't get their platinum privileges.

I will post when I can  questions I will try to answer

 We are in an outside cabin for the first time, usually have a suite or mini-suite, did not choose a balcony cabin as the balcony can't be accessed when the upper bunk is down.

Obstructed view emerald deck

There are over 250 under 12's on board. Children's club is small compared to other ships we have been on. Most children aren't using the club. The 8-12 club photos

I will try to get a photo later, we are using the princess at sea site to see what events are on, we have found it easier.

Mocktails menu in the bar next to international cafe, some bars have different mocktails.

Sunshine daqiari is sweet and slushy 😄. Like having a strawberry sorbet

Zero mojito was too minty for me didn't like it at all

The photo below is the  key West cooler, very nice and refreshing.  IMG_20190812_141256036.thumb.jpg.657fd762947e23f75b219c208a9b8ddc.jpg

What is the cabin number?

 

Pretty clear view for an obstructed View.

 

I have done this cruise 2x, the last one 2018.

If Maria is still in Crooners she makes the best strawberries on fire. We were on the Sapphire earlier this year for 26 days and found hers to be the best of all the bartenders.

I did ask about mocktails in crooners but they were reluctant to make any. Didn't see Maria, I will test it out again 😃

There are two sockets on the desk, three pin but we have used a two pin adapter and it works. There are usb sockets in back of TV but TV is wedged tight in space it would be difficult to access them.

I will take a photo later.
