Coral Princess Cruise Review by beechbum530
- Sail Date: January 2018
- Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
- Cabin Type: Balcony
Crew as a whole are friendly and the three foot rule of speaking to you makes you feel wanted and appreciated.
Food is good, but not in my opinion as good as Celebrity, the always menu in the main dining room contains not steaks but burgers and bad pasta. Horizon buffet is constantly changing meals that are quite good, however, again due the age of the ship the food is not really hot but warm. Maitre d explained only heat lamps are used not latest technology.
Sabitni\s was excellent and on sea days pizza served custom made at lunch.
Entertainment production shows were excellent however, the individual acts ranged from a great comic to a ventriloquist and trumpet player (heard better in high school bands). Magician fantastic. Cruise director was shrill and shouted at audience at shows, and I found her really annoying. Question? Why is no music played on ship by live bands that was written in past 40 years?
Embarcation and departures well handled and easy.. Appreciated that late dining has been moved to 7:30 but early dining at 5:30 on shore excursion days is tough to understand.
All in all we prefer Celebrity for travel and will probably only return to Princess if price and
itinerary cannot be found on Celebrity.

SubmarineBORING. Promised a wreck and reef went around the wreck for 40 minutes and then went to rock garden (seriously) just rocks and a bumpy dirt road ride for 30 minutes to look at seascape of rough water. Save your money.View All 55 Submarine Reviews
