Princess Cruises Coral Princess Panama Canal November 9, 2003

The Coral Princess far exceeded our expectations. The ship was beautiful and all public rooms very tastefully done. The Crooners Bar was a lot of fun as each evening there was a sing-a-long with a very funny Gentleman piano player from England. Three Production shows were excellent with the fourth, unfortunately just loud and not as good.

The food was outstanding. We were surprised as there were 2000 passangers on board. We chose the "Personal Choice" dining room and had a table for two each evening, except the two we ate at the Speciality Restaurants, which were also very good. Everything selected in all restaurants came prepared as ordered, and hot which is a feat not accomplished on many of the larger ships

The Lido was also quite good. Not having to use trays but very large plates instead kept the lines rapidly moving. Selections were many and quite varied.

Bakery rolls, pastries and cakes were superb.

Only complaint,no omelette stations in the morning and the excessive charge for ice cream with no other choice on deck.

amount of stars:5
