This is our second trip on Coral Princess. I grew up on ocean liners so my expectations were high and I was disappointed the first time. This time, I knew what to expect so it was fine. However, it would be nice if the ship didn't look like a Hyatt hotel.

Pros: The friendly, professional staff

Cons: Decor

Recommends Coral Princess? Yes!

Shows were average but the dance band was excellent.
Ship Quality
The layout was very nice - it never felt crowded except in the buffet lines.
Food and Dining
On our first Coral Princess food was not always hot but this time everything was perfect
Cabin / Stateroom
All good. Decor could have been more interesting
Service and Staff
Loved the staff: In particular: Calean Richards, Grenada (Crooners); Vinod Thakur, India (Wheelhouse); Francois (photo); Dumitru Marvis, Romania (Crooners); Vaume Beader, South Africa (Waiter Buffet); Jose Tusan (Waiter); Marquez E Sanchez (Asst Waiter); Maureen Rivera (Waitress); Ekno Borbath (Head Waiter); Savio, Portugal (Photo); woman from Serbia at the desk
