Ushering in a new era in design, this exciting ship is one of cruising's most advanced passenger vessels. Coral Princess offers the same vast array of public room space as Princess' renowned larger ships but, in a twist, spread over two decks and with fewer passengers aboard and offering the most staterooms with balconies in the Princess fleet.
