There are five basic cabin categories available, catering to almost any budget.
Interior Cabins represent 28 percent of the rooms on Sapphire Princess, and this is what we stayed in. There are three types of Oceanview Cabins, including some with an obstructed view. We were intrigued by a few categorized as Deluxe Oceanview—these had a limited-access balcony facing forward on decks 10 and 11 (though no deck furniture). We’ll try them on a future cruise.
There are Balcony Cabins, plus Mini-Suites which—at 354 square feet—promise ample elbow room. However, we noticed that virtually all balconies on decks 9 and 10 were mostly or completely visible from the decks above, a ziggurat effect that creates a lack of privacy. There is also an array of Suites.
