Tony Roberts, vice president Princess Cruises UK and Europe, said: “We are delighted that we will once again offer the most popular domestic and international events to guests sailing on Sapphire Princess.
“Sports fans are in for a treat as they can grab a drink and a bite to eat and head up to the open deck or an onboard bar to watch the big match. Guests who prefer something a little less active can opt for a production show in the theatre, get a behind-the-scenes peek of Sapphire Princess via the ‘Ultimate Ship’s Tour’, or simply relax in one of the many onboard pools and hot tubs.”
