Ship: Coral Princess
Cabin Type: Inside

The itinerary was fantastic. Ship was very clean and servers were wonderful. Entertainment was seriously lacking, but that did not impact us too much. The instrumentalists were a highlight. All shows were only a half hour which was a negative, The food was exemplary, but they need to indicate healthy or low cal choices on the menu other than desserts. Our favorite excursion was in Panama where we rode dugout canoes through the rainforest to an Indian village where they hosted us with dancing and tropical food. The voyage in and out of FLorida was a definite draw so we did not have to fly cross country.

Ship Tip

Take the excursion to Embrara Indian Village in Panama, truly unique. We hired guides in Aruba and Columbia who were wonderful and much less than ship excursion, highly personalized. Make sure they speak English well, though!
