This year my husband and I decided to celebrate our 28th wedding anniversary by going on another Princess cruise. We chose the Panama Canal 11 day partial transit. It was an experience I wouldn't have missed. The weather was beautiful and the 5 different countries we visited were educational and lovely. We visited Aruba, Columbia, Panama, Costa Rica and Jamaica. Princess cruise lines have always been our top choice in cruising. The Coral Princess ship is just the right size as the ship was not overcrowded. Food was good and fresh in all areas we ate (buffet, the grill and the dining room). Our balcony stateroom was clean but the size of the bathroom is quite small. I would recommend the mini-suite for all cruises (we are going to try to afford the upgrade on all our cruises from now on). The towels in the bathroom weren't the best quality. The daytime entertainment (or lack of) by the pool was very disappointing. Not much really was happening during our sea days. However, every night there was good entertainment throughout the ship.
The excursions were very reasonable in price and enjoyable.The seas were a little choppy and windy the first couple of days.
I would recommend this cruise - seeing the Panama Canal in action was quite interesting. I always recommend Princess Cruise Lines.
The employees in the photo gallery took the greatest pictures of us while on board. Lloyd the bartender next to the grill serves an awesome drink. The woman in the ice cream area was very friendly and all smiles. In fact all the crew members we encountered always had smiles. This is one of the many reasons we choose Princess.
