Recommends Coral Princess? Yes!

Mostly typical cruise entertainment. Met expectations.
Piano man Tom Florek, however, is not to be missed.
Food and Dining
Pretty good. Some hits and some misses. Sabatini experience was great atmosphere but only OK on the food.
Ship Quality
Everything kept clean and orderly
Cabin / Stateroom
Can't beat an upgrade from an AA mini-suite to a full suite, with its attendant perks.
Service and Staff
Huatulco, Mexico
We went river rafting. Had a lot of fun.
San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua
Volcano photo tour. Spent way, way too much time on the bus. Try getting a private guide instead.
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Tubing on the river. Van to the launch site took us through some interesting, non-tourist areas. Shopping areas were nothing to write home about.
Puntarenas, Costa Rica
