Default Coral Princess Balcony

I just read the post about cabin choice of the Grand Princess.
I'm just curious about the balcony on the Coral Princess ( Aloha Deck.)
Is it covered or partly? It's to late for us to change. Just wanted to know.

Thanks,

Counting 3 month + 9 days. Can't wait!

We are booked on the Coral for August to Alaska. I never thought to ask if the balconies are covered or not. I just assumed that they were. Hmmmmm, something to ask our travel agent.

Karin:
It is my impression that the Coral class ships are similar to the Grand class except that they can squeeze through the Panama Canal. As such, I think they have that balcony situation. So, unless you are the top dog, folks can look down on you. I doubt this will be much of a concern as I doubt you'll have an opportunity to nude sun bathe in Alaska. (G)

BTW, I will be on the ship in about 9 weeks as I escort her from Fort Lauderdale to San Francisco. (BG) Most of our voyage will be in warm weather and we are in a balcony min-suite near the front of the ship on the Baja deck (B205). It looks like we don't have any Aloha deck cabins above us. I also think we will be away from the noise that was mentioned midship.

Call 1-800-Princess and they can tell you if you're balcony is covered and the square feet of both the balcony and the cabin.

Thanks for all the information. It doesn't matter much. We just like to sit outside
once in a while and enjoy the scenery.

I just came off the 2-12-03 sailing of Coral Princess. All cabins on Aloha deck are fully covered. The fully exposed cabins are on Dolphin. The partially exposed cabins are on Caribe (but there are some fully covered cabins there and on Dolphin too).

Hi,

One more question

Is there an ice bucket in the rooms?? I have seen some pictures of some rooms but never an ice bucket. I can't drink my rum and cokes warm. Please help.

Peter

Peter -
You can order ice from room service. They will bring a good size bucket of ice.
There is also an ice bucket in the room, but there are no ice machines on the decks.

Pete:
All the balconies that I've seen have chairs on them plus a little table. You will have a bucket of ice in your room that will be refreshed each time the steward does some work in your room. They will also replenish any fruit that you let them know you like to have.

Peter - you not only get an ice bucket which is generally filled twice a day, BUT you also have a refrigerator - where you can put your ice bucket if you wish ... or mixes ... or beer ... or milk/cream for your coffee ... or whatever else you want to keep cold. Last I knew, Princess was the only line that had a refrigerator in every cabin - including the inside ones.

The exception, I think, are the Renaissance ships they've leased as the Pacific Princess (R3) and Tahitian Princess (R4). The latest information I've seen is that they don't have refrigerators on those ships. I was hoping they'd add them as part of the remodel, but I don't think they did. I'll find out for sure in September when we take the Pacific Princess from SF to Papeete, Tahiti.
