  1. Thanks, I will wait patiently. Hoping it will be soon 😃
  2. Coral, How about the 2020/2021 New Hawaii itineraries from L.A., will you be getting the pdf. to post here soon?????
  3. Only one time we got Sabatinis suite breakfast on disembarkation morning was when the ship (can’t remember which one) was going into dry dock. And we even got to stay in our rooms a little bit longer, since only workers were going to board.
  4. Yes we did & it did help. It was better than nothing. I have to say I thought the customer service was excellent on the Coral. They followed up with many phone calls within one day of any issues that did come up. Usually on other ships the follow up was 3-4 days.
  5. You will be fine on the port side. I did a little investigating & checked it out. The reason being we plan to go on the Coral again. That side is perfect. No worries
  6. You are right the people right next to us in D701 were fine .😀
  7. The Coral is our favorite ship , even though we had a suite from hell. It was D703 on the Starboard side. It’s a Vista Suite. Not knowing what was across the hallway, due to it not being marked. Thought it was for the crew. It was for the crew alright. Just not what I expected. I especially wanted to warn everyone about the location of this suite. I should have taken the advice from many of you , that say to make sure above, below & next door are cabins. Now I know to add also directly across the hall . I did post a review here on CC under cabin reviews that appears @ the beginning of all these posts. I am posting here what I said : Directly across the hall is where staff brings all room service used dishes, glassware , trays & silverware 24 hours a day everyday to be washed “  Comments. D703 should never have been a Full suite because of this location. Very noisy with clanking dishes, glassware ,trays & silverware they put on a very large & high carts , that is used half in & half out of the hall directly across from D703, all day & night. If they would have been completely in the dishwashing room, might not have been such a noise problem, but 90% of the time they were in the hall with the huge cart dumping the dirty dishes. It was a little like being at a crummy table @ a restaurant , that is right next to where all the dishes are clanking right where all the dishes are being washed. We would probably all ask for a different table. But that doesn’t work on a cruise ship. They never have another suite to move to. So of course we make the best of it. Never ever have we had a noise problem on any Full Suite in all our 37 cruises with Princess. Just wanted to warn others , so none of you would end up with many sleepless nights or day naps. We love the Coral , it’s our favorite ship, just not this cabin .
  8. Ship. Coral Class Deck 9 dolphin Cabin # Suite D703 Category Full Suite Starboard D703 Connects With Cabin # Accessible no Quiet ( NOT AT ALL) See comments below “Beware “ Balcony Size. Quite Large View. Great Privacy Issues. Not the greatest Wind Usual Soot None Problems. “Directly across the hall is where staff brings all room service used dishes, glassware , trays & silverware 24 hours a day everyday to be washed “ Comments.

  9. Didn’t C749 have that fan motor running all the time that you could hear when you stepped out on your balcony. Or I could be wrong. It might have been on a higher deck. It drove me crazy🤔
  10. Yes, we had been on the same itinerary about a year and a half ago, but on the Island & this cruise was way better because of the ship (Coral)
  11. On our last few cruises on the Star & the Coral they claimed they were very busy ( called for the switch @ 12:00 on embarkation day) didn’t actually get the switch until way after 48 hours after boarding. And I kept calling about it. Coffee package was finally loaded to the card . Room service kept saying they gave info to the front desk & that they were the ones not putting it on the card. It was not a big deal as we still had the old paper coffee cards, so they punched those. So now after September, the 1st morning when my husband goes to get the good regular black coffee, I will just tell him to tell them just to add the per cup coffee charge to our ship board account, then deal with the passenger services desk about getting them to refund the charge. I know this doesn’t seem right, but we’ll be on the Star in November & that is the ship that took almost 72 hours for the coffee package to be added to the card. I kind of felt like we would have been gypped out of the perk because they were over worked or short handed. How else could this be handled????????
  12. We never could get anything on our balcony. So glad we just used our free 250 minutes each , instead of getting the unlimited use plan (they were really pushing) since our connection was so bad. But I have to say, I see why the Coral is such a popular ship. It has been awhile since we were on the Coral. We absolutely thought it was the best. Those elevators were so nice and fast & way less people. The size of the ship. Having that back theatre Universal Lounge, with the great On The Bayou show. It made us sick about what they did to the Island. My husband is really sold on the Coral. He said just booked anything on the Coral. He doesn’t care where.
  13. Our router was out in the hallway nearest our Suite on this same 19 day cruise on the Coral. They tried to fix it several times, with no luck ,after several calls by us. Just like the old system we had to leave our door completely open to get a signal. It was very annoying, at 1st because we would lose the signal & we were unable to clock out. We couldn’t understand why it was happening. Not sure but the routers might still be the same or the bugs are not worked out yet It was suite D703 . But as stated above the system was nice and fast, when we could get a signal
  14. I too am hoping to hear a little ahead of time for Hawaii fall 2020 r/t L.A. Spreadsheets from anyone would really be appreciated 😀 Thanks so much
