The Saphire Princess - Two Cruises On The Saphire - Both Were Excellent!

We've had the pleasure of sailing on the cruise ship Sapphire Princess twice, and both cruises were excellent!  We took our first cruise aboard the Sapphire Princess on a cruise to the Mexican Riviera, with stops in Cabo San Lucas, Maatlan, and Puerto Vallarta Mexico. 

The second cruise on the Sapphire was our trip to the Orient where we visited Osaka and Nagasaki Japan, Pusan South Korea, Vladivostok Russia, Dalian, Shanghi, and Beijing China.  The second cruise was a tad bit longer than the first one.
