Mostly good, some bad and some ugly
"The other thing that has really changed in one year is that you get no paper receipts for anything you purchase onboard, and you do not sign for it - wine, beer, drinks just come with no prices and no receipt unless you ask for it.I loved walking around the promenade deck and that was one reason we chose this ship...."Read More

We chose this ship for the itinerary Buenos Aires to Santiago. Itinerary perfect but book your own independent tours for so much less money and far better - too many people on ship tours - think toilets! Staff were fabulous but the people on board lovely but so old i.e. most between 70 and 80 years . No one around after 10 PM . The poor band which were great but had an audience of 6 - quite ...

Been on 8 Princess cruises, this time wasnt that great, the ship was tatty, on our balcony (B531) the wooden rail was loose, the toilet seat was broken, the hairdryer cut out every minute or so. There was a lot of rust. Theatre shows dire, the dining rooms menu hasnt changed since our first cruise and above all we didnt go round Cape Horn as the Captain told us 50 minutes before we should have ...

Princess cancelled our Far East cruise and the same day we were booked on to the Coral Princess going from Buenos Aires to Santiago. South America has always been on the bucket list so off we went. Embarkation was fast and well organised and so was disembarkation. Two ports had tender boats which was well organised. The ship is a little tired in places but the service from all the crew was ...

Chose this as a preamble to an Antarctic cruise. Wanted to visit the Falklands so decided to do this first and if it got there great, if not I would ensure it was a stop on the Antarctic cruise... Embarkation was chaos. San Antonio check in did not open until 1135/1140. Through relatively quickly as Elite/suite. Had to be be bussed to ship.... :-( Ship is the opposite layout to most ...

We chose this because of the itinerary and because it meshed with our flight. We had done Princess cruises in the past and pretty much knew what we were getting into. The good: Food in dining room had improved. Production shows much improved. The Bad: Food in buffet probably gave one of us food poisoning. It was one awful night. The "tendering" to ports without excursion was painful, slow crowded, ...

We chose this cruise for the opportunity to see several landscape/wildlife areas of south america that we have always wanted to see. Tores del Paine National Park in Patagonia Chile was our primary reason for this cruise. We have cruised with Princess on four previous occasions- Panama Canal, Alaska, Caribbean and Rome to Athens. We have only had minor problems with Princess and thus the reason ...

We always wanted to see So. America. We had been on the Coral twice before and wanted to enjoy her again. Cabin was roomy and clean and we enjoyed the balcony (C226). Our room steward was wonderful and very helpful at times. Dining room was good most of the time. We only had one meal each that we did not love. Dining wait staff were very attentive and knew our likes and drinks etc. Desserts ...

The service was excellent, but the food was mediocre, both in the dining room and at the lido buffet. Loved the entertainment on ship! Santiago did not have much sight-seeing that interested us. We like eco-tours, and it's a very arid area. Buenos Aires was great! We particularly liked our gaucho excursion and tango lesson. Ushuaia was one of our favorite stops. We rented a car and went ...

We just got back from a wonderful trip on the Coral Princess from Santiago to Buenos Aires. This is the second time we have taken this cruise; the last time was 4 years ago. This time we booked a mini-suite, club class. The short review is that we loved our trip – even the second time. My husband and I have taken 20+ cruises and have cruised on Princess, Holland America, Royal Caribbean, ...

Background I'm a single 62 YO guy who usually cruises solo. I chose this itinerary for several reasons: 1. It was a continuation of a trip I made w/my Mom aboard Celebrity Millennium during the '05-'06 holiday season to South America; 2. I wanted to see more of Chile, and I welcomed the opportunity to also visit Argentina, the Falklands, and Uruguay; 3. I decided to give Princess another chance ...
