We cruised on Coral out of Vancouver on the July 23rd sailing. We arrived in Vancouver 4 days in advance and stayed in the Westin Bayshore Resort. This is a beautiful hotel and has a superb location.
This was our 7th cruise and our 3rd on Princess. My husband and I are in our early 50s and our friends that we were travelling with are about 10 years older.
We arrived at the ship at 11AM and were in our mini suite at 11:45. We met the couple we were travelling with and were having lunch by noon. This was a wonderful cruise. In fact I liked this ship better than the Star and the Grand. The food was good to very good and the service was excellent. I would say that our room steward was superb. There is a lot of selling going on but I just ignore it and enjoy my cruise.
