The two ships are literally a carbon copy of one another. In addition to the same dimensions, they each both sail the Panama Canal and Alaska. The Island Princess is newer by about 6 months.

Same except for the casino. The Coral has an English theme, the Island a French.. Both are usually sold out so the capacity is the same..

Sailed both within six months. No difference between them except the casino . I can't remember where both had Movie Under the Stars (MUTS)
Also they might of had different specialty restaurants as well.
