Food and Dining

Pretty good. Some hits and some misses. Sabatini experience was great atmosphere but only OK on the food.

Mostly typical cruise entertainment. Met expectations. Piano man Tom Florek, however, is not to be missed.

Can't beat an upgrade from an AA mini-suite to a full suite, with its attendant perks.

We went river rafting. Had a lot of fun.

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.

Volcano photo tour. Spent way, way too much time on the bus. Try getting a private guide instead.

Pros: Excellent service & ship's cleanliness

Cons: Nicaragua tour was a lost day

Recommends Coral Princess? Yes!
