Sapphire Princess

Sapphire Princess is a jewel on the high seas - filled with innovative features and luxurious amenities. Swim in one of four sparkling pools, shop the boutiques or get a massage in the Lotus Spa. Dine casually on pizza and burgers or more elegantly in one of the many formal dining rooms and specialty restaurants. And with nearly 740 balcony staterooms, there's a room with a view for you.
