'Sapphire Princess' is in dry dock at the moment in Victoria, British Columbia. The work is scheduled for the refit from January 9th to February 4th, 2012.
This photo is of the three storey atrium as it was when we were on the ship in 2008. It was a beautiful space with sweeping staircases, elevators behind elaborate cut-out brass screens, and comfortable chairs where you could sit and listen to musicians playing. It was also a great place for party nights and the famous 'champagne waterfall'!
Now the atrium is being transformed into a Piazza with an International Café, Vines Wine Bar and Alfredo's Pizzeria. I'll be very interested to see the end result.
