Just My Take....
Coral Princess Cruise Review to Alaska - Gulf of Alaska
Well...to be fair, I'm not really a "cruise person" and would prefer to visit destination not via a cruise ship. But I will say the trip was decent. For the most part, the trip delivered on making sure all of the locations were visited and the Ports of Call were explored. I really enjoyed my Port excursion trips...but will say, they are totally OVER-PRICED! As far as the boat is concerned, it was just average at best. A few items needing improvement included -
1.) Better "anytime dining" experience (stood in long lines to eat & when seated, always had to share a table with others)
2.) The other ship restaurants charge you a fee to eat, but the food was not BETTER than what you get in the regular restaurants, included in your price.
3.) Too much of "pushing sales" on the boat! Raffle this-raffle that...etc. Too gimmicky!
4.) The "days at Sea" were somewhat boring.
5.) Need MORE variety of shows at sea (i.e. Live Jazz groups, Broadway plays, etc)
6.) I understand the package DID NOT include alcohol as part of the package...but, WHY do you 'nickel and dime' passengers and make them pay for fruit juice, sodas, etc. Haven't you made plenty of money?
7.) So I got my ice-cream cone as part of my package...but was charged $2.50 for my ice-cream malt? ("nickel & diving" again)
...That is all.

Nice locations. Good Excursions. Boat is just Okay...but expect to be "nickel & dimed."
