A very enjoyable cruise

Sail Date: October 22, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

A very well furnished ship among the best we have sailed on. The Universe room was a little too much flash and had very poor sight lines from many of the seats. The atrium was gorgeous and live music music pla was often and beautiful.yed there

Pros: the passage through the panama Canal

Cons: we eat a lot of fish and the fish onboard was usually overdone and dry.

Recommends Coral Princess? Yes!

Ship Quality
It took us a while to get our bearings on board, the front elevator only went to deck 7 and the mid elevator went up to 8. You had to learn which way to go to gert there easily. A bit confusing
Food and Dining
The variety and quality of food was terrific. As fish eaters we had some not-so-good dinners as they fish was way overcooked. However that was probably because it took time from the kirtchen to the table.
Cabin / Stateroom
We opted for a balcony cabin with a bathtub and it was very nice indeed. We were well looked after and the cabin was always clean
Service and Staff
Truly excellent! My wife does not tolerate garlic very well and most everything seemed to contain some garlic. Maitre d' Henrique brought her the days menu and they selected dishes that would be garlic free!!!
Very very good. Some comedians who were terrific
Puntarenas, Costa Rica
We took atour here and enjoyed thoroughly. The highlight being the visit to a coffee plantation that also produced the finished coffee products. We were up as far as 6000 feet.
Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala
we toured the old city of Antigua. A very enjoyable informative tour
Oranjestad, Aruba
We had been there before so we just stolled around town
Huatulco, Mexico
We just wandered around on foot in the shore area of shops and retaurants
