Sail Date: Apr 2019
Cabin: Mini-Suite with Balcony

Destination: Panama Canal and it did not disappoint! Very impressed with this cruise. The Coral Princess was our first ship to sail on with Princess a few years ago and it still is one of our favorites. Small enough to enjoy everything, yet large enough to not feel cramped. Love this line!

Service is superb in every venue. I don't know how they do it, but everyone remembers your name on these ships. I can't say enough about Club Class dining. Truly a great experience and so worth a few extra dollars. We also enjoy specialty dining once each trip, but really don't need it as the menu in the dining rooms are extensive and varied.

From Embarkation to Disembarking the ship, everything about this repositioning cruise was great. Only wish our travel agent with Princess had told us we could continue on to other ports of call. We would have gone on to Vancouver as the ship headed for Alaska. Thanks Princess for making everyone feel so special on your line!

Cabin Review

Mini-Suite with Balcony

Cabin MD

This mini suite, picked because we signed up for Club Class dining, was very nicely appointed and well kept by our cabin steward, Adelo. As we are persons who 'pick up after ourselves', we didn't leave lots of messes for our steward to have to deal with. I appreciate all of his service to us. Everything was in working order and we had a great 'in cabin' experience. Sleeping was a dream! Rocking of the boat at times through rough seas was very soothing. As boaters, we enjoyed it all.

Port Reviews

Fuerte Amador (Balboa)

'We took the Panama 'Canal Railway train from Fuerte Amador, Panama City, through the countryside to the new locks and watched some ships transit. Time to see a small film on the canal and tour around the new locks was fun.


Huatulco could be named the Hades of the north, as it was hotter than ........ We did not take a tour here, but understand from others that there was nothing especially significant to see. As with other points of interest on Mexico's west coast, development is still happening.

San Juan del Sur

this port of call was canceled .
