Going into Panama Canal

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The Seder Dinner and ceremony was the best.  Granted I am not Jewish but it was well done!  Our cabin steward "Ginalyn" was wonderful, would love to have her on every Princess cruise.  So very helpful!  Good food, well presented, mostly a wonderful taste.  

The only negative was the one excursion in Panama to the new locks!  What a major waste of time. Seeing one ship go into the new locks okay but wait for over 90 minutes.  Then to wait for other passengers to finally show up 30 minutes later!  Then a ride through old housing area!  No place to eat on this tour except chips and soda.  Tour guide was no help, would not recommend using him again.

The cruise was a cruise but if you are used to carnival its an adjustment. Everything closed at 1130, even the food places. They had a lot of activties but nothong too mich for younger people and not many people showed up. The group was older than im used to. Carnival had 24 hour pizza places. I guess the wheather was bad becauae the ship ricked the whole time. So much so you had to hold on to something but great for sleeping. The staff was nice enough but i wish they had a club or at least an all night hot bar.

A wonderful time!

My favorite part was the food. Everything was taken to a new level of taste. We had club class dining as we were in a full suite and other than the initial greeting the service was impeccable. Our first night at club class we were immediately directed to general anytime dining without even asking our room number. I was offended but the rest of the staff were fabulous. Our suite was very nice. Jeffrey our attendant was extremely attentive to our needs. I loved having two televisions. My only other complaint was with the Sanctuary. The first day onboard I toured the ship and took photos of the Sanctuary to show my husband. I explained the policy prior to taking him. However, when we arrived a attendant insisted he return to the entrance and read the about the charges on the entrance. Was that really necessary?  Otherwise the trip was fabulous.

Great cruise. Good food, good tours. Need more entertainment for on ship time.

I liked the lecture series on solar system, atronomy, panama canal. The boarding and disembark went  very smoothly and fast.

Like going through the canal and the excursions in Columbia, Costa Rica and Jamaica. Liked that Princess had various happy hours in some of the bars every day. Traveled with 10 of us in our group and we all had a great time.

Panama Canal cruise on Coral princess

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

It is a good itinary. This ship is not as nice as some other princess ships because there is a long wait for the dining room. There are not enough chairs to sit by the pool, or anywhere near it. The cabin attendants and the buffet were great!'

GREAT CRUISE ON THE CORAL PRINCESS

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The food was the very best we have had on any cruise--and we have done ten. Fantastic chef on this ship.  The entertainment was also the best we have ever enjoyed.  The costumes and sets and the quality of the performers was above and beyond.  The ship , which is not new, was clean and the service in all bars and other venues was excellent.  On the minus side, where the ship docked was a major problem. Other lines had all the prime spots and we were delegated in one case to a cement plant where steel beams and machinery had to be negotiated for disembarkation. This was not the only port this happened in. As Platinum Princess members, we really expected a good table in the assigned seating dining room, but were given a table right by a major freeway of waiters delivering meals and taking dishes away.  We complained to the head waiters, all of which came and talked to us, but there was nothing that could have been done at that point (the first dining). So besides internet access (250 minutes) being loyal to Princess, means very little.  However, overall, it was a great cruise and there were far more positives than the few negatives.

Quick shore visits

The first 2 days were Sea Days and then when we finally stopped in port it was for 5 hours and then off again. The excursions were short. We did as much as we felt we could but you certainly aren't going to learn much about each port.

The evening dining, in Anytime Dining, was a very long line (35-45 minutes) because there was nothing else to do. I'd suggest assigned dining so you have a time to be there and a chance of getting in. We tried to make reservation, as we have on other cruise lines, and that was not an option.

The shows were very entertaining. We didn't find "other" activities such as watercolor painting or lectures that we've experienced on other cruise. 

Getting on board and off in Ft.

were very simple and a pleasure.

We loved seeing the Panama Canal

Our favorite part of the cruise was the entertainment!  We were thrilled with all that was brought to the stage as well as the game-show type events that were planned.

 

The food was very good, and the ship was nice.  The only suggestion for improvement I have is to perhaps offer more of a variety of things to do for the days at sea.  

 

I have  already recommended the trip to others!

Food and entertainment was very good. However, the ship itself could use some sprucing up (painting, repairs, etc.). Enjoyed Aruba and Grand Cayman visits. The Panama Canal was an interesting experience.

Great hamburgers at the grill. Really liked the ventriloquist who entertained a couple of nights.
