Island, Coral Princess Update
Princess plans to debut the fleet’s newest ships -- Island and Coral Princess respectively -- next summer in Alaska. The 88,000-ton sister ships, smaller than the cruise line’s Grand class -- will basically offer the usual Princess traditions -- high ratio of balcony cabins, the Personal Choice dining program, the popular Wheelhouse Bar, wedding chapel, huge kids center, and a comprehensive Internet cafe but there will be a few new additions. Among them? One (of three) show lounges will be equipped with full television production capabilities and high definition projection and will have three revolving stages. Island and Coral will both be home to a new “ScholarShip at Sea,” which will organize shipboard activities like crafts, cooking, visual arts and computers into some semblance of an enrichment program. And the “other” alternative restaurant (in addition to mainstay Sabatini’s) this time will be New Orleans-inspired and called the Bayou Cafe; plans are to offer Cajun cuisine and live jazz.

The 1,950-passenger Island and Coral Princess will be sailing 7-day “Voyage of the Glaciers” Gulf of Alaska (Vancouver - Seward or vice versa) itineraries.
