Sapphire Princess Sets Sail After Renovations

The Sapphire Princess set sail on a cruise to Hawaii this weekend following a three-week makeover that added some of Princess Cruises’ signature amenities to the ship.

New features include a piazza atrium with the International Café and Vines wine bar, plus the new Alfredo’s Pizzeria. The ship now also features movies under the stars on a giant screen on the ship’s top deck, as well as “pockets of tranquility” in the adults-only Sanctuary.
