The Coral Princess Northbound Cruise and Land Tour - Day 1 & 2

The Coral Princess Northbound Cruise and Land Tour
Embarkation and the Ship

After the last cruise I took on the Norwegian Breakaway, it was almost a relief to be on a smaller ship once more with the Coral Princess.  This time however, would be the first time we wouldn't have a balcony.  Yes the room was a wee bit smaller than I'm used to, but with the small porthole window (which was almost always dirty from sea spray) it brightened up the space, but hey,  we were going to be in Alaska so it's  not like I would be spending much time other than sleeping there.

Finding the port was just as easy the embarkation process. After dropping off your luggage curbside and a couple of quick lines (there's even ice cold water and paper cups for your convenience on a cart) to pick up your door key/credit card for all ship purchases you're on board before you know it. 

 The Crab Shack is only open during certain sea days, check the Princess Patter to see when.

Anytime dining, dining room.

The Horizon Court.

Princess Theater

The next day was a sea day, which was also the first formal night, I decided to skip out on the fancy extravagances that a formal night entails and get my geek on with a Movie-Under-the-Stars viewing of X-Men First Class

And for anyone curious, here's a sample Princess Patter from the cruise.

                      Up next, the third of my Alaskan adventure in the coastal town of Kethickan. Stay tuned!
