Great cruise that could use a few improvements
Coral Princess Cruise Review to Alaska - Gulf of Alaska
Review summaryWe had an amazing time in the views were absolutely spectacular! The captain did a great job making sure we spend plenty of time seeing all of the sites, of which there were many. The food on the cruise was only so so. There was plenty of it in the all you can eat dining rooms and the ramen night was our hands down favorite. The omelettes for breakfast are made to order and that was a nice touch. The restaurant we were assigned was called Bordeaux and although the service was great, the portions were too small and the food was only average at best. You could certainly order more but we usually didn’t. I would recommend getting the drink package or at least the coffee package, so you can get espresso drinks as the regular coffee on the ship was not great. This was our first time to Alaska and we will definitely go back as it was spectular. To sum it all up, the ship was fine. The food was so-so but the staff was great. Also, the state rooms were very comfortable, with large balconies. The bed was extremely comfortable and the pillows were too. We had a group of 9 and everyone commented on the beds and pillows.
Food and Dining
Crooners Martini Bar
Great little spot to sit and talk and have a drink. Almost like a throwback little lounge which is a lot of fun and very comfortable. Great drinks too
Fine. Trivia and a listening to the guitar player were really what we would do in this space.
Great service and a gluttonous amount of decent food. Certainly better than the Bordeaux dining room, but also a $25 charge per head, plus we tipped pretty well as the service was really great. That was a very fun night!
Bordeaux Dining Room
Fantastic service with average food. Great deserts though.
Small, but a ton of fun. Lana, one of the craps dealers, is great!
My wife and daughter went but in fairness I never did, so this review is really secondhand information. I walked through the spa a few times and it looked beautiful.
