Coral Princess

March 2015 - Coral Princess to Panama Canal, Central America

Panama Canal Cruise

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.

Caribbean Princess

November 2014 - Caribbean Princess to Caribbean - Western

Costa Maya and Cozumel

This was a very relaxing cruise out of Port Everglades, Fl going to Costa Maya and Cozumel Mexico for the week of Thanksgiving.

The ship was very clean and the crew were fantastic. Extremely comfortable mini suite and the steward was wonderful.

Food was so so but I don't have high expectations cruising in the Caribbean.

I would recommend this cruise due to the ship and crew.

Ruby Princess

March 2014 - Ruby Princess to Caribbean - Western

Western Caribbean Cruise

My husband and I took this cruise out of Ft Lauderdale for our 27th Wedding Anniversary.

This was our first time on the Ruby Princess and we were not disappointed.

The staff made us feel very right at home and were very polite and friendly.

Went to Cozumel and Grand Cayman, both interesting places to visit.  

I am looking forward to taking this cruise again so we can explore different areas of each port.

Food and the entertainment were good.

Princess truly knows how to conduct a cruise and to make sure we were pleased.

Caribbean Princess

October 2010 - Caribbean Princess to Canada, New England, New York

A Fun Time Ship Experience

We just completed our first cruise on the Caribbean Princess to New England and all I can say is "Wow!". The ship is much larger than all our prior ships we have sailed on and we had no idea what to expect. The piazza in the center of the ship was the main stay for nightlife. Lots to do throughout the cruise either by day or by night. The ship's beautiful decor was not overbearing and the ship was extremely clean. Our balcony cabin was comfortable and had plenty of room for all your needs. This is our sixth cruise overall with four sailings on Princess. Princess is tops in our book with their friendly and exceptional staff. Whatever you need or want, they are there for you. The food was great whether you went to a restaurant (anytime dining is the way to go) or to the buffet. If you are celebrating something then you need to cruise with Princess for they make your celebration very special. We love sailing on Princess.

A trip worth remembering

turkeypb's Tips

Key West, Florida - Not enough time in port. Did the hop on hop off trolly, which was nice because you learned some history on Key West.
Carnival Victory Carnival Victory - Don't have any expectations and you will be pleasantly surprised.
Cozumel, Mexico - Went to a 5 star all inclusive resort and had a great time. Food was marginal, but staff were very friendly.
Colon, Panama - taking a boat ride and seeing sloths and monkeys were a highlight
Coral Princess Coral Princess - visit Lloyd the bartender by the grill for great drinks. visit the smiling woman at the ice cream bar. book a mini suite for a bigger bathroom and shower
Caribbean Princess Caribbean Princess - Ship is extremely easy to maneuver. Wish there was no smoking in the casino as the smoke tends to linger throughout the ship.
Cozumel, Mexico - beautiful beaches with plenty of great shore excursions
