Not the Princess line I remember: Coral Princess Cruise Review by seait
Overall Member Rating
Not the Princess line I remember
Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
Embarkation: Los Angeles
The spa facilities and treatments were utilized on a daily basis. Service here was very good but of course at a rather high price but then to be pampered is part of cruising.
The cabin stewart was less than enthusiatic and I had to request replenishment of the shampoo etc. Not a big tip left for him! Speaking of tips, I much prefer to tip the individuals that I feel have provided good service and not this automatic More charge to the onboard account. I will say that when I went to the Passenger Service desk, they willingly credited back the automatic daily charge without even asking me for a reason. From what I gathered...I was not alone in this request. Does that tell you something??
I must say in all fairness, embarkment and disembarkment went very quickly and without any problems whatsoever. Taxis to the airport were plentiful and very reasonable...$12.00...much cheaper than the ship transfer!
I have not yet given up on the Princess line and have just booked passage on the Sapphire Princess for March 6th to the Mexican Riviera. If this trip turns out similar to the Panama trip, then it will be my last on Princess. Having travelled several other lines, I have come to expect a certain standard and we all pay enough for these cruises that we should not have to settle for a lower standard.
Cabin review: D335
Cabin size was good, nice large closet, bathroom tiny, we were near an elevator but it did not disturb us. Balcony neighbours heavy smokers so sitting out on the balcony was not pleasant and it was not utilized as I would have liked.
