We just got back from a cruise on the Coral Princess roundtrip from Ft. Lauderdale to panama Canal. FANTASTIC!!!
I will post a complete report if anyone wants it, or will answer questions.
The ports were carefully selected and security was well in force, but invisible.
The Ship's shore excursions were Fantastic. I know people say you can save money by booking your excursions yourself, but there are logistic, liability and security reasons to book with the cruise line. In this post 9/11 world, why take chances?
I recently returned from a Panama Canal trip on her sister ship Island Princess and am in the process of posting ship pictures on this sites photo gallery. Just follow the links under interactive features. Superb ship and I agree with the comments about the itinerary.
