Coral Princess - Cruise Review May 10 - 13, 2008 San Francisco to Vancouver
My friend and I joined the Coral Princess for the short (two night) trip from San Francisco to Vancouver. The ship departed at 4:00 PM on Saturday, and arrived in Vancouver at 10:00 AM on Monday. I have cruised a number of times before, and this was my friend's first cruise.
Overall, this was a very nice experience. We enjoyed the ship itself, the facilities and the food. My comparison for this cruise is with a similar (three night) cruise I did last year (2007) aboard the NCL Norwegian Star, from Los Angeles to Vancouver.
Our cabin (D229) was nice. Good space for hanging clothes, and a nice balcony. The cabin was also quiet, which was appreciated. There was relatively little motion felt, since this cabin was moderately close to the center of the ship. There was some walking involved, since the restaurants are more to the stern of the ship, but it wasn't bad, especially once you got used to the layout of the ship.
