Just Booked Coral Princess

Recommended Posts

I just booked the Coral Princess Panama Canal cruise for next March. I usually sail with Celebrity, but the dates for this cruise were better for us. Does anyone have any information on this ship, good or bad.

We were on the Coral Princess for our Alaska cruise last August. Nice ship, good service. You'll have a great time.

I'm glad to hear you both had a good time. We're really looking forward to this cruise, even if it is almost a year away! I've never been on a cruise longer than 7 nights so this will be great.

We cruised this itinerary in late February/early March this year. I posted a review at:

In short, it was a wonderful cruise!

Just returned from Coral and it was the best cruise we have done. Great crew and beautiful ship. Food was very good and mini suite was awesome. Price was unbeatable. We have done 2 Celebrity and 2 Princess, 1 Costa (arggghhh) and 1 Renassaince.

We were on the Coral just this last Feb and had a great time. The Panama Canal is a engineering marvel and Costa Riva was very luch. If you are planning your excursions look at the Ports of Call board for info on the stops you will make. You will have a great time.

Just returned from Panama Canal on the Coral. It is a beautiful ship. Service was excellent from both our cabin steward -Zaldy- and the dining room waiters. In fact all the crew we came in contact with were great. Food was very good and the shows were great. Only disappointment was the ocean-to-ocean tour. Too long, too hot, and too crowded. Did PC dining. Had the same table and waiters each night. Had a minisuite which was wonderful. Ask your steward for feather pillows as soon as you meet him as the pillows are not the best. By far the best cruise we ever did.

Hi teedee,
My wife and I first cruised Princess
on The Golden a little over a year ago.
We were very impressed. We had previously
sailed with RCCL, Celebrity and HAL. Princess
outshined them all. We are booked for a relocation cruise on the Coral (15 days-Ft. Lauderdale to San Francisco) departing Apr 21, 2004. I've been surfing the sites for over a year looking for reviews and the like. Here are a fewlinks:

I would be very surprised if you do not have a great cruise experience.
