Anyone else going on this one ?? Anyone have any comments about the Sapphire Princess .. we were on the Grand Princess a couple years ago and although the ports were bad the ship was lovely. This looks much the same as far as the ship goes
I love the Diamond/Sapphire! One bnig difference is the anytime dining rooms are broken into 4 smaller ones ... makes for a more intimate, land-based restaurant feel. I have heard they now just offer one specialty at each restaurant, rather than a totally different menu.
Also, you will not the different layout for the disco, and the aft will look different with its two pools.
Check our the photo gallery I uploaded of the Diamond -- just search Harry in the photo galleries.

The Sapphire is beautiful!! We were on the Caribe deck in a balcony cabin, port side, last cabin on the side (C742). What a great location....no noise at all!! I spent a lot of time at the outside pool with my kids and there always seemed to be something going on out there....we didn't care much for the inside pool because it was always so hot and humid, but many seemed to enjoy it. Make sure you check out Skywalkers Night Club....very cool!! The food in the dining room was pretty good, but out of the 10 nights we probably only ate in there 5 times. We either ate at the buffet, grabbed pizza or a burger, or ordered room service and ate on our balcony. The ship is big and took a little while for us to get familiar with the lay out, but once we got it down it was no problem....just a lot of walking! Enjoy your cruise!!!
