Reviews

From customers:

Melissa E

The first night I happened to be walking through the lobby when the Sapphire String Trio were doing a set. As someone who grew up playing musical instruments I was inspired by their talent. Those three Brits can certainly play. I was amazed by the repertoire, how they could do Disney Hits, classical symphonies, and then the Game of Thrones theme song. I watched them every night and they never disappointed.

Terry P

They are wonderful I saw them perform on the Carnival Conquest and I hope to see them again.
