My husband and I took my inlaws, our teen daughter and our 5 year old son on a Sunday evening. Attendance was very low so it was perfect, maybe 25 on board!

My husband and I had one of the best date nights on the ship. Service was amazing from all of the staff members. The food was good. I wouldn't say amazing but it was tasty. I would recommend The Sapphire to all my friends and we will be back!
