This was a wonderful experience and we would highly recommend this cruise.  Starting with Melissa at American Airlines travel to leaving the ship,  it was all great.  The parking at PARK AND GO, the embarkation with our cabin ready immediately, the welcome buffet and the staff waiting for us and making us feel welcome,  it was all a great start and it just kept getting better.  The dining room,  we ate most meals there,  the varied menu and quality of the food was amazing.  Our waiters, Abdul and Marcos,  were happy and helpful making the dining experience way above average.  We did the CHEF'S TABLE,  well worth the $$$, a wonderful celebration of delish food and wine.  The entertainment was first class all the way. 
We are not smokers, and were pleased to not have to deal with smoke.  Our balcony was smoke free and no one smoking on theirs !! 

The main thing we noticed on the Coral Princess is that ALL the employees are happy, always smiling and happy and willing to help in any way possible.  We took lollipops with us and gave them out to many employees in every position, what joy we experienced from their appreciation.  A special thank you to Guedo, the head chef, Abdul, Marcos, and Joaquim in the dining room, Glenn our room steward, and  Carmen in the bar.  We hope to travel on the Coral Princess again.

Cabin / Stateroom
Glenn was efficient and very helpful. Our room was ready when we boarded the ship (12:30) which was a huge bonus. Thank you Glenn for all the extra things you did for us.

The food was varied and delish. The waiters and staff were happy and helpful, Abdul and Marcos knew what we wanted before we even asked. A great experience


If you are driving, look into Park and Go. Balcony room was worth the extra $, going thru the Panama Canal sitting on our balcony enjoying a beautiful room service breakfast was such a luxury. Would highly recommend the Coral Princess
