Having completed an extensive 2-week refit in Singapore earlier this year, Sapphire Princess is all set to sail out of Southampton.
The 2,670-guest Sapphire Princess recently departed Singapore once the refurbishments were completed. Upon its arrival in the UK, Sapphire Princess will sail roundtrip out of Southampton from May to October 2018, followed by a larger season from April to October 2019. The majority of voyages on offer will be Mediterranean & northern Europe cruises, with a 24 day Canada & New England cruise in 2019.
Included in the refit is the introduction of a new luxury bed, which will be added to every stateroom by June. Princess collaborated with sleep expert Dr Michael Breus to create these exclusive beds which include: fine linens, enhanced mattress support and a king-size deluxe pillow available with feathers or anti-allergy microfibre.
Tony Roberts, Princess Cruises‘ vice president UK and Europe, said “UK guests looking to recharge their batteries are in for a real treat as our luxury bed offers the ultimate night’s sleep on board. Holidays are the one time of year we all want to switch off and relax; with Princess, you can make the most of your day on or off the ship knowing you’ll be fully rested and ready to come back new.”
Other onboard enhancements include:
- Upgrades to the spa and treatment rooms
- Updated gym equipment
- A new boutique from Effy fine jewellers
- Retail enhancements
- A large-scale LED screen, measuring 15m wide and 4.5m, for use in the theatre
- Princess Cruises’ signature logo on the ship’s bow
Speaking on the enhancements, Tony Roberts stated, “guests can take advantage of a wealth of upgraded onboard options, from indulging in some retail therapy, to enjoying the spa, to unwinding in a yoga class.” It is clear to see Princess Cruises are maximising their efforts to make sure their cruisers are comfortable and relaxed whilst onboard Sapphire Princess.
