Food & Drink
There are four anytime restaurants on board ship allowing passengers dine where they want, when they want and choose from a menu of finely crafted culinary delights. For a more traditional dining experience, the International Dining Room offers fixed time seating but with the same fine menu.
A Princess cruise is all about choice and passengers can also attend the speciality dining venues the Sterling Steakhouse and Sabatini’s Italian restaurant.
The Piazza is the heart of the ship and home to a number of informal eateries including coffee and cake at the International Café and freshly prepared pizza at Alfredo’s.
When the sun goes down there are plenty of venues to keep guests entertained. Club Fusion is a lively setting for live music, entertainment and dancing. Skywalkers is the ship’s nightclub where the DJ spins the decks playing club classics and disco favourites. For those who like the gamble, there are plenty of games of chance in the Sapphire Casino.
The Princess Theatre is a beautifully finished arena and the perfect setting for the full production shows. As an alternative, the Explorers lounge hosts a range of Cabaret acts.
Those who enjoy films can savour the biggest Hollywood blockbusters out on deck with Princess’ trademark Movies Under the Stars events.
Sapphire Princess has its own Spa Retreat on board in the form of the Sanctuary. Here guests can just relax in the tranquil atmosphere or enjoy a range of massage treatments.
On the top deck guests can find four pools including the Calypso pool, with a retractable roof, allowing swimmers to get in the water in any conditions, and the Terrace pool, which offers stunning ocean views.
Despite being out at sea, passengers can stay in touch with all the news back home at the Internet Café.
