11 Night Roundtrip Panama Canal (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 26, 2014
Ship: Coral Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 4 years ago

Positives: Handicapped cabin and room steward very good. Food and service in main dining room quite good. Passage through the Panama Canal very interesting. Daniel Oliver, entertainer in Crooners Lounge, as good as it gets!!!


Diappointments: Stage shows not up to the standard of other Princess ships and Carnival Liberty experienced this past summer. Food in Sabitinis and ambience in Steakhouse; service in both very good. Relative lack of major movies in the theaters versus on-deck during sea days. Relatively limited shore excursions for someone who is handicapped.


Strategy for us for the future: Book larger ship (such as the Regal or Royal or RCCL) with more interesting on-board activities and entertainment and more limited number of, but easily accessible, ports such as St. Thomas and St. Maartens
