Tips for the main dining rooms on Sapphire Princess:
Breakfast is served from 7:30am to 9:30am, and lunch is from noon to 2:00pm.
For reservations only dining in the International, early dinner is 6:00pm, and late dinner is 8:15pm. You may also make dinner reservations only at 6:00pm in the Vivaldi Dining Room. Unless you have opted for Anytime Dining which occurs as you wish from 5:30pm to 10:00pm, you will need reservations for dinner. It's perfectly acceptable to change your mind once aboard the Sapphire Princess, but we do suggest you notify staff of your wishes as early as possible. You may make reservations after booking your cruise by contacting Princess at www.princess.com or call 800-774-6237. Contact Princess for any changes you wish to make no later than 3 weeks before sailing, but keep in mind that changes must be honored on a first come, first serve basis. After changes have been requested and when you are aboard ship, confirm with your Maitre D' within your first 24 hours, and staff will as much as possible try to accommodate you.
For special dietary concerns, Princess needs your requests in writing no later than 4 weeks before you sail, and these requests need to be confirmed once you're aboard with the Maitre D' within 24 hours. Go to the Cruise Personalizer on the Princess website to specify dietary preferences. Bare feet, jeans, shorts, tank tops, and swim wear are not permitted.
For gentlemen, smart casual such as slacks and polo style shirts are more appropriate at dinner time. For formal nights, you'll be most comfortable in elegant attire.
Meals are no cost, but special beverages, wines, beer, and soft drinks may be purchased via current bar menu.
When ordering steaks and other meats, specify your grilling preference.
