Sapphire back in service after extensive makeover

Sapphire Princess has set sail after an extensive three-week makeover to add a host of signature Princess Cruises’ features to the ship. Currently sailing on a cruise to Hawaii, Sapphire Princess passengers can now enjoy a new Piazza atrium with the International Café and Vines wine bar, plus the new Alfredo’s Pizzeria. On the top deck, the cruise ship now features a giant Movies Under the Stars screen, and passengers can also relax in the ship’s “pocket of tranquility,”the adults-only Sanctuary. Also part of the renovation were several relocated and upgraded venues, including the Art Gallery, Internet Café and Library, and the Photo-Video Gallery. New carpet, upholstery and tile work was added throughout the ship, and staterooms now feature new flat-screen televisions. (
