A true do nothing vacation day to pack and read instructions on how to disembark. Everyday Princess gives you your Princess Patter, a four page newsletter to tell you what happening, where you are, the weather, what shows are going on that night, and as many other little things as you could possibly want. For me, being a slow and slightly dyslexic reader, if I had read all of it my entire voyage would have been taken up reading.
We did get lots of pictures very late as we made our way through College Fjord, because there are eight glaciers that are called tidewater (they come all the way down to the water level). Many others that are visable up on the mountain sides.
So with only pictures to show for the day I will try to also tell you a little about the ship and show the pictures we took of our stateroom, and other places around this ship. The Coral Princess holds nearly 2,000 passengers and a crew of 1,000. Our stateroom was one of the 700 balcony rooms available and although not huge, sufficient. Well, except for the bathroom. The shower is quite small and had only a very small lip so it was difficult to keep the shower curtain inside, if it wasn’t trying to plaster itself against you. Also, the handicap or safety handle stuck out to give you even less room. Around the ship are some very nice lounges, showrooms, and public areas, and the atrium is spectacular. The atrium is four stories tall with two glass elevators and curved staircases.
Oh, there was one other nice thing today, and that was my wife’s birthday!! We were able to celebrate it at dinner in the main dining room with two other couples. After a very nice meal she was presented with a small multi-layer cake with a rose and candle on the top and several waiters sang her Happy Birthday, and the one special waiter sang her a love song right over her shoulder.
