Coral Princess Cruise Review by cr0886
- Sail Date: April 2019
- Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
- Cabin Type: Mini-Suite with Balcony
We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a mini suite in which our room steward, Winston, kept very clean. Although we chose anytime dining, we chose not to do it. Instead, we ate breakfast and lunch in the Horizon Buffet where the food was great (sometimes a little too good), but one thing that bothered me was that various passengers refused to wash their hands even when prompted by a crew member. We had huge, delicious meals at both Sabitinis and Bayou restaurants. I would definitely recommend going to either one. You won’t be disappointed.
We booked excursions at all our ports of call but would’ve rather done our own thing on a majority of them. We didn’t find them up to Princess standards like others we’ve done on other ships. A special shoutout to the amazing staff in Crooners. Putu, Parban, and Bo became very good friends and I hope that we will cross paths with them again soon.

Magnificent CartegenaThis excursion was marked as moderate, but turned out to be strenuous. Passengers with bad knees or hips could not make the long hike up to the fortress. Disappointing!View All 15 Magnificent Cartegena Reviews
Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)We arrived a day early and stayed at Hilton Ft. Lauderdale Marina hotel. Our room had a balcony with a view of the marina and ocean. Very close to the port.View All 1,922 Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades) Cruise Port Reviews

HuatulcoVery pretty place. Did the land and sea excursion. On the boat tour we were offered refreshments and snacks. It was a bit frustrating at times because other passengers stood at the front taking pictures while limiting the view for those with limited mobility.View All 167 Huatulco Cruise Port Reviews
Bus tour was okay. We stopped at a small market before heading back to the ship.

City TourDid not care for this tour. The guide did not interact with us except when lecturing us on being on time. She ended up leaving a couple at Hollywood Boulevard! The city has a real problem with homelessness. We didn't need to see that.View All 41 City Tour Reviews
