The ship is older but the food was good, the service was excellent. We never felt like we were imposing (like the bigger ships you can be). We joined up with a Great group of people (from cc) and it felt like family (in a good way). The ...
We arrived at Ft Lauderdale the day before the cruise so we could rest for cruise day. Ft Lauderdale was fun as we used the water taxi to sightsee the area and explore the beaches and restaurants.
Embarkation on the Coral Princess was ...
We chose this cruise because we liked the ports of call and were looking forward to sailing with Princess again. This was our 5th Princess cruise but it has been 10 years since we sailed with them. The ship itself was small and would be ...
My parents chose this itinerary as a Panama Canal cruise was on my father's "bucket list" (he's in his early 70's). As I normally make all my parents' travel arrangements and the cruise fare offered by Princess last October was ...
We chose this itinerary primarily because of the opportunity to go through the Panama Canal locks. The rest of the itinerary was fine. We used the ship's shore excursions for the ports except for Cartagena (private tour). Surprisingly, ...
Food was excellant . CABIN STEWART WAS VERY GOOD WITH ALL OUR NEEDS
SHIP WAS RIGHT SIZE FOR US HAD AN OUTSIDE BALCONY AND THE VIEWS WERE
Great. Comedy show was great and had great deserts!!!!
The 2 onboard pools were right ...
We have cruised over 30 times, but only once before on Princess, in Alaska. We gave it rave reviews. So we talked another couple (first timers) into traveling with us to the Panama Canal. The first two days at sea went well, except for a ...
This is our second cruise to the Caribbean on the coral princess. While the ship is starting to show its age on a lot of different levels, we feel it is very well-designed.
This is the second year in a row that some of the ports ...
We had a very enjoyable cruise on the Coral Princess partial transit of the Panama Canal. The ship is beautiful and we found almost all of the staff to be friendly and eager to please. We enjoyed the food in the Main Dining Room, the ...
This cruise is billed as the Panama Canal cruise. If you accept that then the abbreviated shore excursions in other places become acceptable. If not, then the extremely short layovers will not be satisfactory. That being said, this is an ...
We went especially for the Panama Canal and it was great.Our 6 th time going thru the canal but got no certificate this time as we had in the past..Our balcony was D 516 and Jeffery did an excellent job.He always had our cabin finished ...
BEST CRUISE EVER! We took the Panama Canal Cruise out of Fort Lauderdale. We had been on a couple more Princess cruises that were good, but this one exceeded our expectations! This one was over the top SPECTACULAR!
ONE: It is extremely ...
We sailed on the Coral Princess for the partial Panama transit from January 17 to 27, 2017. This was our twelfth cruise and our ninth with Princess. Having encountered a poor all around experience on the Star Princess in April 2016 for a ...
1. $12.80 +tip cab fare from FLL to the cruise ship.
2. Suites are nice and not claustrophobic.
3. Bed was very comfortable.
4. Head Chef and Maitre D were very nice. Chef's Table was excellent. ($95 each)
We went as part of a group of friends.
My wife is scooter-bound. We were initially told that because of my wife's mobility issues, we could not go on any of the shore excursions. However, after discussions with the shore excursion ...
I was with a group of Physician friends and I did not make the choice of Princess.. I am a vegetarian and the ship did not cater to special diet needs.. The fruits served were unripe and lacking in quality.. Bananas,melons and pine apple ...
Cruising to Panama Canal with 19 others.
The ship is very nice. Of course, the shower is tiny as all cruises. One night there was the odor of varnish in our hallway. We called the desk and they had the crew stop painting ...
Was very excited to go to Columbia, Panama, and Costa Rica. The Coral Princess is an older ship and the cabin bathroom was unbelievably small. The Cabin and restaurant serving staffs were excellent, friendly, and professional. The front ...
My wife's 60th BD loomed large in our planning and we always wanted to go to the Panama Canal so this was a great way to combine the two. On top of that, she was and still is a New Year's Baby so just any old First Night party would not ...
There were some good and bad aspects to this cruise. Here are the bad points:
Terrible food- worst we have experienced on any cruise line. I had read previously about the poor pastries on Princess -none of which are made with butter. ...
This was the first time we’ve cruised with Princess as we’re a fan of NCL. So, I was quite hesitant after reading all the negative reviews. However, we liked the itinerary and figured it was worth a try at least once.
This was our second cruise on the Coral Princess. Our first experience was cruising Alaska on the same ship. For this cruise the ship was quite fully booked, with many families and children aboard for the holidays. The ship was festively ...
3 generations of our family travelled together on the Coral Princess for Christmas, Grandparents (70s), Parents (50s) and kids (20s). We have been travelling on cruises all together for the past 15 years and have been on more than 20 ...
This was our 9th cruise on Princess, and 12th overall.
We were going to be home alone at Christmas and decided to go on a cruise instead. We'd been to the Caribbean several times before, but not to the Canal. We selected this ...
The Coral is a lovely ship and the perfect size. It never felt crowded.
In the past, we’ve been on the Caribbean, Grand, Royal and Regal.
Due to it’s size, and quality of service, the Coral is our new favorite.
