Sapphire Princess is a cruise ship owned by Princess Cruises that entered service in 2004 as the twin sister ship of Diamond Princess. She is one of the world’s largest cruise ships, with a capacity of 2,670 passengers and is the sixth Gem Class ship built by Princess Cruises. Sapphire Princess was christened on June 10, 2004 in Seattle—the first cruise ship ever to be christened in that port.
Sapphire Princess was built in Japan and completed in 2004, fitted with over 700 balconies from which guests can step out and enjoy the refreshing ocean breeze. Warm, welcoming crew members enhance your experience on board, from your friendly stateroom steward’s attentive service, to white-gloved waiters adorning your plate with freshly-baked pastries during Afternoon Tea, to sommeliers recommending the perfect wine to accompany your dish!
