Coral Princess Cruise Review to Panama Canal, Central America
Sail Date: March 17, 2013
Ship: Coral Princess
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 5 years ago
This cruise was diappointing mostly because of the excursion at the Panama Canal. It was promoted as a 6 hour cruise and the most desired by customers.
The 6 hours turned into 9 hours, 5 on an uncomfortable boat sitting in plastic chairs and not even allowing our party of 6 to sit together. (Cram as many people as possible onto the boat is their motto) 4 hours on a bus, returning us at dark at 8:00PM and unable to go to the evenings entertainment we were most looking forward to. Also food was horrible (advertised as a light lunch --white bread with a square of ham, american cheese (made by the captain's family as I saw them bringing it onboard.
Worse when we discussed with the shore excursion people they were unsympathetic and the Shore Exc. mgr was rude and undignified for Princess.
