Hi Nan and Anysys, (?)
No worries, you are in for a real treat. The Coral is truely beautiful and I have a 2 important tips.
If you plan on getting hair etc done for the formal nights, book the day of boarding. The Spa is extremely popular on these nights so booking is essential. I was lucky enough to be wandering around on the day of boarding, peering into all spaces and stumbled into the spa. While there I booked for all of us firls for all the formal days and it worked out beautifully, besides earning brownie points with the rest of our gang. It is worth it.
The Horizon buffet can get really busy. We only ate there twice due the sight of 100s of psgrs lining up for food is to much for me to bear, but when we did the food was great. Tip - send a scout to secure a seat and protect it with your life if you plan on eating at busy times.
The Explorers lounge has one of the best Jazz musicians I have ever seen or heard. A true treat.
You all have me back at Princess web site looking for a South Pacific cruise now.
I have written a more in depth report at www.cruise-chat.com
