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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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, ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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. ... Read more

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. We ... Read more
