Overall Member Rating
Family of 12 70th birthday Christmas cruise
Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
First let me say our travel agent in Barbados has to make our arrangements with agents in Santo Domingo who do not speak English so that most of our special requests were lost in translation in spite of repeated phone calls and Emails. Princess Management PLEASE look at this.
Our family ages were from 15months to 73 years. Kudos to our Dining room waiters Chris and Denmark ,Table184 When we first went to dinner we were split up in spite of request to be seated together. This was rectified the following evening.
The ship was beautifully decorated for Christmas and the programes for the teenagers and 8 year old good. The evening Shows were awful. Lacked any imagination at all We have travelled on several cruise lines and Coral Princess`s shows were by far the worst.Having said that movies under the stars were good and I found movies in cabin good and destination lectures very informative.
Our cabinD421 was very comfortable and spacious. Did not like the fact More that before we had disembarked on our return from breakfast approx 8.00am. the bed in our cabin was already made up for the next passenger
Dinner was average but we did enjoy our breakfast in sabatinis Less

Cabin was satisfactory and up to our expectations
Port and Shore Excursions
We walked into town and took a tour with a local driver $20 US per person Clean vechicle Knowledgeable driver Very happy with our choice
Tour to top of Fort for over 60 too much in the heat The baby was sleeping so I stayed on the bus to which my children all said good decision mum The palacio de la inquistion was interesting but our guide gave way too much information .Cartegena a very attractive city Would have liked an hour or two just to wander around
