Overview

Designed to navigate smaller ports of call, the Coral Princess travels to remote destinations along the Panama Canal, the West Coast and Alaska. Although it debuted in 2003, the ship's most recent refurbishment in January 2019 helps it stay on par with mainstream competitors.

With 895 crew members and 2,000 passengers, the ship offers a more intimate setting than its larger siblings. Standout amenities include the Lotus Spa, a poolside theater for Movies Under the Stars and a nine-hole putting course.

In terms of lodging, 80 percent of outside staterooms are equipped with balconies. You'll find flat-screen TVs and minifridges in all staterooms, while those in Mini-Suites and Suites are granted more space and larger balconies. What's more, each guest aboard Coral Princess now receives an OceanMedallion wearable device to unlock his or her stateroom, make onboard payments, track down friends and family and more.

When it comes to dining, guests can choose from nine venues, including two main dining rooms, five informal eateries and two specialty dining restaurants. Guests can also splurge for a private four-course meal on their balconies (for an extra fee).

In 2019-20, Coral Princess departs from ports in AnchorageVancouver, Fort Lauderdale, Buenos AiresSan FranciscoLos Angeles and more for sailings in Alaska, California, South America and the Panama Canal.
