I couldn't believe my luck when a trip to the Antarctica came up. I was saying the night before to my husband that we would not be visiting this part of the world because it was way too expensive, then BINGO the Coral Princes was cruising down this part of the world with a few stops on the way and on the way back. (at an affordable price) Our cabin was extremely comfortable and we were on the 8th level which was very convenient. The laundry was also on our level which was a bonus to be able to wash and dry our clothes. The ship was spotless and the crew looked and behaved very professional. Our Captain Todd McBain was absolutely amazing. He kept us totally up to date with the conditions and travel day. He made the trip an absolute adventure and ensured that we got the best of all the sites. On the bridge daily whilst in the Antarctica there was a commentary regarding the surroundings, ice and sea life which was fantastic. Never been on a cruise before with so much forthcoming information. We received a map detailing the areas we had cruised with the dates of the Antarctic and a certificate to say we had completed this journey. Very nice touch! The Captain also was concerned with the comfy of his passengers,went out of his way to cruise waters which were calm and not expose us to rough conditions. This resulted in cruising the Patagonia which was an absolute delight. We received a map detailing this leg of the trip which was so nice. We stop at Port Stanley and visited Gypsy Cove to see the penguins then walked around the town taking in the history. Ushuaia was another port visited which is known as the "End of the World". We loved this place such a great ambience and people were extremely friendly. We went to Tierra de Fuego National Park, place of beauty. We had an amazing day exploring absolutely beautiful. The Antarctica was a wonderland of white, blue, ice bergs and sea life. This place takes your breathe away with its beauty. A Must See. We loved cruising with this very professional team on the Coral Princess.

Cabin Review

Oceanview (obstructed view)
Cabin OV
Our cabin was extremely comfortable. The bed and pillows are super super comfortable so cuddly. The cabin was cleaned everyday and felt fresh on return from time on the deck etc.
Very happy with our accomodation.
