Not so sure about that declining the upgrade. When I got one, they already had made the switch and I asked them to switch back ... NOPE that cabin had already been reassigned. What I do now is pick out exactly what I want and tell them to not upgrade me. But, to each their own!!!
Do wish Princess would post the cabins on their web site for the Coral ... last I checked they still hadn't and that was only a couple of days ago.
I cruise the Emerald Princess, Eastern Caribbean on April 16, 2012
Here is a link to a photo album of someone that stayed in a category AD minisuite on the Baja Deck. There are shots of this type of room. There are also shots of various balconies in this album. The first two photos are of the Spa price list. (View full size to read the small print if you are interested). http://community.webshots.com/album/67864600XMdRcO
I've been searching and searching for Pics of the Island or Coral Princess. Thanks you. We are taking our first Cruise on Aug 9th to Alaska on the Island Princess and these Pics give us a good idea of what to expect.
We just recently got back from our cruise on April 13th to the Panama Canal, we got married on this ship.
We were in C537 normal outside room with bigger balcony, and honestly we saw some of the mini suites and their balconies and they were much smaller then the one we had. Be selective if they do offer an upgrade, I would even suggest getting a balcony on the Caribe deck as these have larger balconies then any other floor. The balconies on top overlooked us and we overlooked some and all were smaller.
It was our first time with Princess and we have nothing but positive things to say, service, food, entertainment, and pool activities were all great!!
