Coral Princess, Cartagena
Coral Princess Review – Overview
In November 2013 we took a 12 day cruise on the Coral Princess roundtrip from Fort Lauderdale to the Panama Canal. The half transit of the Panama Canal was an excellent way to experience Panama. With approximately 2,500 passengers, the Coral Princess has the advantage of a small ship atmosphere combined with a beautifully remodeled appearance. Princess maintains a standardized decor, resulting in a similar feel on all Princess ships. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, which enhances the experience. They go out of the way to say greet passengers in a manner that’s contagious.
Coral Princess Review – International Cafe
The best feature of Fiesta Deck 6 is the International Cafe. This is a great place to avoid the breakfast crowds and enjoy a latte and pastry. I particularly enjoyed the hazelnut stolen and the macadamia brownies. After a warm, tiring day ashore, the White Chocolate Ice Drinks were amazing. The only downside to the International Cafe is its proximity to the Casino, which can be noisy at times. The pastries and sandwiches at the International Cafe are complimentary, but the specialty coffees are not.
Horizon Court Buffet
Coral Princess Review – Horizon Court
The Horizon Court Buffet on Lido Dec 14 is a highlight. It is located at the bow of the ship with floor to ceiling glass surrounding the entire eating area. It’s a great place to enjoy views in all directions while dining. The Horizon Court had nearly all the same options as the dining room. It’s also a wonderful place to have after dinner desserts and coffee.
