Hi Gladys.  Sounds like an awesome cruise!  We’re thinking about a river cruise in Portugal for that time-frame, but we haven’t booked anything yet so you never know!  Happy Anniversary and Happy Cruising!

Hi, Jan, we actually did that same cruise several years ago and the Coral is a beautiful ship. We really enjoyed the excursions especially the one we did in panama, we choose the excursion that bused you into the interior and then we were taken by canoe to a native village where we experienced how the Cuna indians live, it was a great cruise.

Thanks for the feedback, Gladys. I've been wanting to sail Coral for a long time and happy to finally get my turn. What time of year did you go, and how was the weather? I wish our time in Aruba was going to be longer, but we're all excited for this cruise!

Hi Jan, we actually did it one year for New Years and the weather was great. The funny thing that happened to us while on the cruise was that we had an ocean view room, so when we were going through the locks we had went back to our room and to our surprise was looking at the inside wall of the lock and was looking at the little creatures that made the concrete wall their home, we watched as the ship slowly raised up from the lock as the water in the lock was being equalized for the ship to enter into the next lock. What an experience,  we still laugh about.

Our daughter at the time was actually working for Princess, she was one of the pier operations supervisor in Ft Lauderdale and the Coral was actually one of her ships. She told us that every time the ship came back to port it had to be repainted due to the sides sometimes rubbing the inside of the walls of the locks. The Coral was her favorite ship with all the beautiful teak wood that is found throughout the ship,its a beautiful ship through.

Little creatures - what a bonus! I heard they open the forward and stern crew-only areas for guests to view the canal as they go through the locks. Was this the case on Coral when you sailed?

I don't recall  them doing that when we sailed on her back in 2007, but then they could have changed it in the past 10 years.
