Coral Princess

May 2017 - Coral Princess to Alaska - Gulf of Alaska

awesome

We had the time of our lives. Everything worked as planned. The ship needs to have it's makeup touched up but in no way affected our cruise. The ship's crew maneuvered us around so all could get up close and as personal as we could with multiple Glaciers. The tours were smooth and enjoyable. Our room steward Jacinto Baptista) was such a great guy. My wife had special needs and he attended to this forthwith. The food was delicious and the entertainment was impeccable. The stage productions are some of the best we have seen off Broadway. All in all a splendid time indeed.

Caribbean Princess

January 2014 - Caribbean Princess to Caribbean - Western

huury up and wait

  Well, it didn't look good in the beginning. We finally set sail around five hours late. Embarking was smooth and painless. Once under way we were informed we would steam to Roatan and then come back to Belize and Coz. This was a very good plan and it gave us max time at each stop.

  It was obvious the crew was taking extraordinary care in protecting our health. This slowed down the food on the Lido but it was worth it. The young lady who cared for our room was impeccable. Our wait staff was also above reproach. The food in the dining room Palm was extremely well prepared and the selection each night was mind wrenching. So many goodies so little time. The Maitre d's singing was most enjoyable.   All in all the cruise portion of the trip was deligtfull. We will not hesitate to cruise with you again.

  Now  a couple suggestions. Roatan sucks. I can't say any more. Belize and Coz was very nice. Even the tender ride was as painless as it could be.

Since we were on heighten alert for Narvo we all were interested in the instruction from the bridge. I am 75 and like most of the passengers our age it is difficult to hear. The Captains remarks and instuctions were unintelligible. Although his command of english may be very good his thick accent on a noisy ship didn't work. We had to get an interpretation from a crew member. Suggest when you have instructions of a medical nature you let the head of the medical team make them and let a junior officer make all others.

  Otherwise we returned home safe and sound. Disembarked easily with minimum delays. As I said we will probable go along for the ride with you again.

Thank You

Coral Princess Coral Princess - I would recommend you go to Vancouver a day early as we did. We heard of time consuming problems at customs and ground transport from some who didn't. Also be aware it is appx. 60 miles from Whittier to Anchorage,take the transport provided by Princess.
