Glad we went on this cruise but we will not do it again. My husband & I along with sister & husband with several friends booked this cruise as we thought seeing the Panama Canal would be a great experience. Think best way to rate ... Read more

My wife and I are Elite cruisers with Princess and, although we've cruised the Panama Canal several times, we wanted to see the new construction. So, we booked a ten day cruise that would allow us to do so. We were among the 40 most ... Read more

This review should probably get a 3.5. Better than average although not good enough to be rated a 4 for very good. The good news: the ship is pretty; she shows her age but wears the years well. Our inside cabin was lovely, well designed ... Read more

Overall, the cruise was fantastic. We've cruised at least 25+ times with various cruise lines and I can honestly say that the majority of the service on this ship was head and shoulders above the rest. In particular, the Internet Cafe ... Read more

We sailed on the 6 day cruise immediately after ship completed a two week dry dock. The last time we sailed on Princess was four years ago to the PanamaCanal. Boarding was easy since we could not dock until 1pm since the ship was late ... Read more

We too had a poor experience. I took my 81 year old mother and her friend on a cruise while they were visiting me. As previous reviewers have mentioned vacation time is precious and while I have never sailed princess before I expected ... Read more

Embarkation: Very smooth. It took no more than 10 minutes from check-in to entering the ship whether you were Elite or otherwise. Cabin: Our cabin had a nice-sized balcony, far bigger than the one we had on the Royal. The bedding and ... Read more

After being informed that this ship was dry docked for 14 days prior to our departure, I am a bit confused as to what they were doing!? Aside from being stuck floating in Cuban waters for two days because of engine failure, missing 2 of ... Read more

On the January 30th 2016 cruise this was truly the cruise from hell. First the cruise was late getting to port from dry dock and left the port 90 minutes late. At this time there were no pools or hot tubs. Some rooms had no operating ... Read more

Bucket list cruise to see the Panama Canal. Food was quite good on board. There were plumbing issues on board. Shower never did get very hot, but managable. What spoiled our cruise was the enclosed pool area. Management allowed ... Read more

We are two retired teachers in our early 60's. We choose this cruise as my daughter was able to house sit for us at this time. Otherwise we would have done it a few weeks later. That being said: The ship itself was very nice. (We ... Read more

Princess is our favorite cruise line, and the Coral had some things going for it. The ship is in good shape and very clean, although it "creaks" a lot in some of the staterooms and the stateroom shower is laughably small. The ... Read more

As seasoned cruisers, we were pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed our mini-suite with a window (Baja 202 - our usual balcony choices midship weren't available). It was large with a wonderful tub but be warned that you DEFINITELY ... Read more

Enjoyed our time on the ship. Panama Canal full transit is a must do except the 8 "at sea" days are too many. Staff for the most part were excellent. Most of the entertainment was very good. There were a couple of acts that were ... Read more

While I agree that the Coral Princess had the best production show cast I have seen on a cruise ship I was quite disappointed with the Coral Princess. I wonder if it had something to do with the Captain leaving the ship before the end of ... Read more

I wish there was a rating between poor and average. I agree with some of the other reviews I read on this site. The ship definitely needs a facelift, which I understand it soon to take place. Too late for me though. The shower was the ... Read more
