October 2015 - Coral Princess to Panama Canal, Central America
A perfect balcony for this trip; the cabin with a shaded balcony during the warm weather was great; unfortunately, if we had not had this advantage, we would not have enjoyed it as much as we did, and perhaps would have had a negative experience, since my friend enjoys sitting on the balcony with the breeze and the exposed balconies would have discouraged sitting on the balcony when the sun was high. The stateroom attendant, Erwin, was very gracious and helpful and always checked with us when we were going to be in, so that in fact, he only came in (when we were there) about three times in the 10 days. Also, the food was very acceptable, and in the Bordeaux room, I was very pleased with the choices of meals--pheasant was a new experience for me, and some of the other dishes were also. So, we both enjoyed dining in the evening with a plethora of choices in both meals and desserts. I would say we would go again if we were to go on a cruise elsewhere, but unfortunately, while the cruise was reasonably priced, neither of us will probably go on an ocean cruise again, but it was a most enjoyable experience.
