the Cora princess is a bit older and much smaller than the new ships, but it offers the no crowd problem, short waits for shore exploring, very fast on and off the ship and may I put in CAPS, the entertainment was above first class, I have been on about 37 cruises and seen tons of shows, the group on the Coral Princess was the finest ever, three standing ovations! The ship size lets you enjoy the ample deck space, fast service and great ports and the buffet is full and complete if you don't want to dress for dinner in smart casual wear. Remember you can always find your cabin, the carpet on the the even numbered cabins are in red and the odd numbered cabins have blue carpet, Also the IT staff is young and very friendly with all your needs. Everything you like to eat is available on deck 14 every day, duck to turkey to lamb to steak!!
