Would do it again

Sail Date: August 13, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Suite

Staff and other guests were friendly and warm and had a great time. Would have more hooks in the room to hang things and the lights above not in the center of ceiling so someone could sleep while the other person read etc. I decided that traditional dining was not a good choice...liked meeting new people each night...however liked the early seating very I could go to early shows etc.

Pros: the glaciers and side nature trips in port and dancing

Cons: too much food and more healthy choices

Recommends Coral Princess? Yes!

Ship Quality
Thought was very clean and liked decor very much. Would have liked a smoke free room however..could detect smell. Ship size was perfect!
Food and Dining
For the fine dining it was fine. I dine out a lot. So the quality was ok a few items exceptional. Overall food quality above average. Staff and service were excelllent!
Cabin / Stateroom
Room was okay except for tobacco smell. Very clean and steward was superb.
Service and Staff
Steward and waiters went above and beyond and very friendly and helpful.
Entertainment was fine. Liked the violinist trio the best and the natuaralist talks and park ranger and Libby Riggles were super! I loved the dance classes and Zumba.
Skagway, Alaska
