Ship Facts: Coral Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Coral Princess Deck Plans
Coral Princess: Pros and Cons
First, HUGE thanks to all who post. You all are soooo helpful!

A short review: Coral Princess:

PROS

Beautiful ship; excellent staff, esp. the dining room.

Roomy even with a full ship.

(Long narrow design for Panama Canal made it seem so)

Food was terrific, esp. main dining room dinners.

Highly recommended: Sabatenti's ... great experience.

Best cabin design, esp. for inside, of all.

Closet faced the bathroom with no doors. Very convenient.

Closet back served as a room divider. Flat panel TVs.

Excellent, well-paced itinerary.

Smooth disembarkation on port days, even with tenders. Very well-organized.

Excellent fast check-in and end of cruise disembarkation procedures.

Check out Wheelhouse Bar private rooms off main -- little musuem full

of nautical history.

CONS:

(hope Princess is reading this.)

Skip Bayou Cafe ... unappealing spicy menu; no one ever in there.

(They should stick to a straight steakhouse concept)

Worst casino ...old machines, very few penny slots, very small smoking section. One penny machine was out the whole cruise.

Entertainment ...yawn. Unfunny comedians, old hat singing and dancing shows.

Misuse of Maurizio ... a terrific keyboarder who had them dancing in the aisles in Crooner's Lounge while Wheelhouse Bar was empty at night.

Very restrictive smoking policy on ship.

Expensive spa: $19 for polish change; $50 for a manicure!

That said ... worth the trip on this ship. Very enjoyable.

p.s. Forgive any mix-up on ports ...didn't take great notes and they seem to run together.

-- Didn't take ship shore excursions. Plenty of pier side drivers anxious for our business. Bargain with them.
