A mediocre Cruise

Sail Date: December 01, 2012

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Not being kept up.In defense\,The ship is scheduled for DryDock makeover in January 2013...This was our third cruise on the Coral Princess and did not rate as high as the first two. The cheapness shown: No playing cards available except for purchase\,no salt and pepper shakers in the buffet area\,had paper packets like a drive-thru.

Pros: visiting ports

Cons: Non activity of the cruise staff and Captain

Recommends Coral Princess? No.

Ship Quality
The ship has become a litte rundown
Food and Dining
The quality was below Princess standards of times gone by and the wait staff seemed bothered that they had to work and serve.
Cabin / Stateroom
Our cabin steward\, MA\,Christina made our cabin more livable by taking care in cleaning and supplies. The balcony had an obstruction(E207)that kept the wind out but had limited area.
Service and Staff
The Captain did not meet guests at Captains Circle and was not seen except for ten minutes at the CC party\, he did not make any daily announcements or mingle.
Shows were Ok\,only a few performers were better than ok.shows were same as four years ago.It was quite boring with only four ports in 14 days.
