Coral Princess

December 2016 - Coral Princess to Panama Canal, Central America

Return Trip to Panama - well worth it

We enjoyed the excursions in Colombia, Panama as well as the excursion in Jamaica. All stops were good but the worse excursion was in Costa Rica. The Banana train ride was a joke and not worth a penny.  No stops just looking out the window of an old train as it rides thru the Banana Plantations. Would definitely make a change in the future. They should add stops to this excursion to allow the guests to mingle with the local people and spend some badly needed money in their respective communities. We are now planning a trip just to Jamaica as we enjoyed it so much we will have to spend at least 4 to 5 days to enrich ourselves even more.

AmaDagio

April 2015 - AmaDagio to Europe

Excellent cruise but if it's a scenic cruise your looking for this is not the one.

We took a 13 day package that included 3 days in Paris, 7 days cruising on the Amadagio and three days in Barcelona. Paris is Paris and there's a lot to see and visit and you'll never see it all but Barcelona was fantastic and enjoyable. A lot of history in these two major cities, let alone the stops on the way to Barcelona.

Ship, crew personnel, attention to detail was top notch. Food was great but not excellent. Meals included different wines every evening and made this part of the dining experience very good. Attention at the Chef's Table Restaurant is something to look forward to - don't miss out. Excursions every day with sometimes 2 or 3 to choose from and at no additional cost.

My negatives, If your looking for a scenic cruise to enjoy while cruising down the river and looking out via your French Balcony - this isn't the cruise for that. The scenery was barely there or not that great. After a while looking at vineyards and open grounds isn't something I will look forward to in the future.

Overall the cruise was good and I would do it again with Ama Waterways but a totally different cruise experience (most likely down the Danube or Rhine or maybe Amsterdam).

Adventure of the Seas

January 2015 - Adventure of the Seas to Caribbean - Southern

Enjoyable - relaxing to recharge your body

WTired with Stirred with St.ired always select any time dining so we can go to whatever restaurant we wish or go to the buffet, etc. We were won over by the Server Dalibor and his assistant Hari in the Mozart Dining Room. So much that we highlighted each evening dining and being served by this duo. 5 stops to enjoy and do your own thing. We live in a beach available area so that doesn't attract us but there's plenty to do and see at all stops. It also was great to go to St. Croix and not St. Thomas .

jorgelvnv's Tips

Coral Princess Coral Princess - The Magician was terrible doing tricks you see a child do when he commences on a career of doing Magic.. Don't waste your time as you will be disappointed. Shows were not spectacular but OK
Ocho Rios, Jamaica - We enjoyed this part of the tri the most. Definitely do the Dunn River Falls. We will plan a separate vacation only to Jamaica as it was the highlight of the trip.
Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida - Unfortunately we got caught up in the shooting at Ft. Lauderdale airport and our flight was cancelled but Delta Airlines treats us well and taxied us to West Palm Beach and put us up in a Hilton Hotel for two additional nights until we could fly out on Monday.
Puerto Limon, Costa Rica - Avoid the Train ride thru the Banana Plantations as it's bad, boring and over priced. Try something different.
Colon, Panama - The city has a lot of apparent poverty and all you can do is shop right there at the pier. Take an excursion as you will not want to walk thru the city of Colon which I understand will be 100% business in the next two years as all residents are being moved to other housing away from the city.
End Of Vacation - Bus ride to Barcelona was long but moved along swiftly.
AmaDagio AmaDagio - Captain and Assistant Captain (husband and wife team) very personable. Enough can't be said about the cruise director, Peter. He earns his dollars and is very attentive to details for each of the couples. With only a max of 150 passengers on board it's very easy to make friends and feel wanted.
Frederiksted, St. Croix, U.S.V.I. - Very different than St Thomas which has nothing but watches - liquor - cigarettes and jewelers. St Croix had beautiful scenery and places to see.
St. John's, Antigua - took a tour with a local Taxi driver at 1/3 of the cost of the excursion packages with the same the same stops as the expensive excursions
Adventure of the Seas Adventure of the Seas - 6th floor great as close to Dining room - Main area of entertainment and elevators (toward rear of the ship)
