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.

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.

Panama Canal cruise on Coral princess

Verified Review

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!'

We loved seeing the Panama Canal

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

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!

Quick shore visits

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

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.

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.

Panama canal was the most interesting .Side cruise into the canal was my reason for take this cruise.    All of the ships crew that I came into contact with were very informative about them self and the operation of the ship.

great itinerary - ship and amenities not up to Princess standards

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The Panama Canal was great as was Cartegena - Costa Rica and the excursions were disappointing - overall good ports and good excursions.

 

The ship was somewhat crowded - anytime dining meant anytime waiting - the staff was great - but reservations were hard to get and waits of up to 30 minutes - 

we opted for the Crab Shack which was a great pop up choice one night.  Most disappointing was the wine list-  3 bottles we wanted were out of stock the first night - there were no good roses on the menu for the whole trip

 

Entertainment was not up to what we expected - mostly single performers and one production show - and you had to get to the theaters really early in order to get seats

triva required getting to the lounge two hours early to get a seat because it was in the same location as happy hour - 

 

my husband has mobility problems and i had to get to excursions early to be able to get a seat in the front of the bus for him - since there were limited reserved handicapped seats 

the smoking area was extremely limited - and something standing room only with poor ventilation

 

the crew was great and our cabin steward accommodating for the first time ever I encountered someone at the reception desk that was not customer friendly

 

Itinerary was changed we went to Ocho Rios not Montego Bay

panama canal, highlight

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Coral princess, has a great embarkation and debarkation system, as long as you  do the advance requested paper work.  The ship is small and older  but well maintained. Newer bigger ships may have more to offer but can't give you the experience of fitting thru the canal locks, etc. The food was excellent , some of the best I have experienced, The ship's entertainment shows employed local on board staff, but they surprised me with their singing and acting talent. The shows were well  worth seeing..The ship  was well staffed and made us all feel comfortable and our needs were all met. The time in Ports  were somewhat shorter than we liked but were fun to see.. Bottom line. A memorable 10 day journey highlighted by a delightful experience at the canal, sandwiched by visits to several interesting ports a days at sea.
