Panama Canal - great itinerary

Coral Princess Cruise Review by hobbyfarmer2

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jan 2019
  • Destination: the Panama Canal & Central America
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

This itinerary has been on our bucket list for a long time. The enrichment activities provided by Chris Roberts and Dr. Angel Colon were most enjoyable and greatly increased my awareness on the topics covered. Please continue these enrichment lectures with fine speakers like these two gentlemen.

The crew was awesome and provided perfect service as well as exhibiting tremendous good morale. Special thanks to bar staff, Shailesh, Komang, Edgar, Mario, Geraldine & Sheila. Thanks to IC staff as well including Papa Ver, Anoop, Lito and Yehven.

We loved the numerous spaces for the passengers to sit, eat something or have a drink. Our faves were the Wheelhouse bar (biggest fave), Crooners, the IC, MUTS, Explorers bar.

The Blue Jade band was the best entertainment and dance band we have heard so far on a ship. We closed the Wheelhouse bar every night due to them.

The ship's band was the best we have experienced to date as well.

The theatre really need two more exits. Many somewhat disabled people took a lot of time using the two available exits making me really hope that there would be no emergency that required the theatre to vacate.

Cabin Review

Cabin BE D230

Very nice cabin with two chairs, a desk and large cold mini-fridge. TV on the wall would be nice and we hear this is planned.

Puerto Vallarta

Charming city. DW uncle gave us a tour of the old town which including some great shopping and lunch on the beach.

A must for any ship or military buff.

We spent the day on the very nearby beach which was a 5 minute walk away.

San Juan del Sur

The Nicaraguan countryside is beautiful and the the architecture in Granada is a must.

One of the best tours we had. Our guide made coffee one of the best tours we had.

Charming to see how the oxcarts and their wheels were made along with the history.

Fuerte Amador (Balboa)

Panama City is most unlikey with its mix of very modern skyscarpers, the original colony and the old town which was gorgeous.

Magnificent Cartegena

Beautiful old town. Sidewalk vendors were numerous and very persistent but we do not criticize as they are just trying to make a living and put food on the table. We also bought three items from them as well.
