Oh no, the ship has sailed on this cruise

Sorry, the ship has sailed on this mini cruise and I'm sure it was a blast! Never mind though, there are plenty more mini cruises to choose from.

About this cruise

Weighing in on the larger side of the mid-sized cruise ship category, Sapphire Princess is big but not enormous, making it ideal for a first-time cruise. If you are a seasoned sailor who has tried lines like Royal Caribbean, P&O Cruises, and Holland America, this would be a great opportunity to see how Princess Cruises compares.

The cruise begins on a Saturday, so it is also a great excuse for a long weekend break, returning early on Tuesday morning. You will board Sapphire Princess in Southampton and sail overnight to Guernsey. It will be a slow meander to St Peter Port, where the ship will anchor offshore. Tender boats will ferry passengers back and forth from the picturesque island.

In the evening, the ship will start its journey to its next port of call of Cherbourg in France. Again, this should be a very gentle sailing as the distances covered are not so great.

Spend the day immersed in French culture. Take an optional shore excursion, enjoy lunch in a bistro, or for a lazy day, head next door to the La Cité de la Mer Maritime Museum and spend the rest of the day on the ship. After all, the following morning it will arrive back in Southampton so you will want to make the most of being on Sapphire Princess.
