Ship Facts: Coral Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Coral Princess Deck Plans
Panama Canal Experience - 12/15/12 Sailing - 14 days
A really good 14 day experience. My Stateroom number was C309, one of the staterooms with the small curved balcony.

STATEROOM: The room was typical in size and in great condition. The balcony was small but was just fine. I liked the curved balcony because it offers a wide 180 degree view of the canal transit. Yes, you lose privacy, as other passengers on their balconies can see you, but for the canal experience I recommend this balcony type; also note you can see the other passengers. Bed was comfortable... bathroom shower was small; When one is on a cruise one should know that showers are smaller than in your house. No problem.

STEWARD STAFF: A+. The room was tended to twice per day, on schedule, and quickly. Moore was the name of the steward... he was very professional and polite.

FOOD: The food was good in all locations. Fresh, pleasing to eat, great to look at. Note, I did not say the food was "great,"... I said it was good. Nothing to complain about. The service however was excellent!

ENTERTAINMENT: Very good, and was changed throughout the duration! I attended all of the choices, and was completely satisfied. The Scholarship@Sea program was fantastic.

SHOPPING: I did not do any on-board shopping, and I did not feel pressured to by anything.

SHIP TOUR: The behind the scenes ship tour (there is a fee) is well worth the cost. It lasts about 3 hours and is very informative.

CONS: 1) This itinerary has many "continuous sea days." 2) The stateroom television had a faulty ship's course tracking system, therefore, one could not track the ship location.

BE AWARE: Internet service on ALL cruise lines is very slow and very expensive.

Princess Cruises did a good job of providing activities and its up to the passengers to take advantage of the offerings. I would do this cruise again and will sail with Princess again.
