Coral Princess

December 2015 - Coral Princess to Panama Canal, Central America

Review of the Coral Princess

Since I have started cruising some years ago, this is the first time that I have experienced a serious cutback in the buffet offerings.  There is some merit to this as it probably avoids a lot of waste.

 

As my cruise was a Holiday Cruise I expected that on New Year's eve we would have received at least a glass of champagne -- it was available but for a price.  In other words, I found Princess to be quite a stingy cruise line.

 

Concerning billing,  additional small charges were added which they could not account for and one of which was subsequently removed and even after settling the final bill there are two additional charges which are wrongly assigned to my bill!!

 

The PA system is not  audible in the hallways so there are times when announcements are missed.

 

There was a rescue of two fishermen in a capsized boat in the ocean.  The Captain and the crew followed all the protocols and were able to save their lives and I believe the Captain is a hero.

 

Despite the above comments, I would book another cruise on Princess.

gkruss's Tips

Cartagena, Colombia - On New Year's day, traffic was heavy and my Cartagena tour to the old town and museum had to be aborted in order to get back to the ship on time.
Colon, Panama - The area where the ship was docked is run down and rather scary.
Coral Princess Coral Princess - The 3-tier atrium filled with the Christmas decoration was awesome.
