coral/connecting cabins?

Yes, and Yes

 

Cabins that connect inside are most of the balcony cabins on the Aloha Deck, aft, A624 to A722. There are a few in this area that don't connect. This area is next to the youth center and under the gym. You can see them on the deck plans by searching for old deck plans that travel companies post. Princess no longer shows this detail in their general on line deck plans.

Most balcony dividers can open between balconies except those that are at the end of the fire zones. You can determine where the fire zones are by the change in the first digit of the cabin number. Opening the balcony divider does not provide a double size balcony. The opening is a two foot door that allows you to pass between balconies.

we had connecting rooms once and loved it.

we booked with an adult (my daughter and myself) and a child in each room.

our steward sent cookies up as a treat for the grandkids. the poor room service person went to one door and delivered cookies then went to the other door, my daughter answered that one too! he was a little bewildered!

Are you speaking about particular balconies on particular decks

on Coral Princess?

 

This truism is repeated here frequently; which doesn't make it true.

Another poster graciously attached a picture to a post:

Additionally, the balconies at the 'bump-outs' don't connect on coral.

ok, what about D630 or D702 port side in a Vista suite, is this a good choice if I can afford it :rolleyes: Is it covered? Thanks again

My 'old' deck plans do not show any interior connection between the two vista suites. Call Princess, they can check for sure. According to the deck plans it does not appear that the Aloha deck aft cabins mentioned are covered. It appears that the section of cabins bumps out beyond the Lido deck above.

 

Here we go again:rolleyes: ....isn't there an open deck for viewing in one of these areas?

If you walk all the way forward on deck 11 you can walk out the door onto a forward deck. Believe this feature is also available on decks 10 & 9. Doors may not be open at all times. Standing only, no seats, windy when ship is in motion. I have been there, but didn't stay long. In my opinion the best views are from the upper open decks with a 360 degree view, and where there are chairs and refreshments. I have been on the Coral twice and the Island twice and always view from the upper decks. The Coral also has good forward views from the Horizon Ct. Buffet, if you can obtain a seat.

Wow, you couldn't be more wrong about viewing areas. Those forward decks (only on Caribe and Baja, by the way) are the best viewing of the Canal locks, especially for watching as the rowboats approach the ship. Nor is it windy, since the ship is just inching along.

 

And please don't encourage people to use the Horizon Court as a place to obtain good views. Some of us would like to be able to use those tables to eat our lunch, not have them hogged all day by sightseers.

Unless I was with the party in the adjoining room I don't think I'd like a cabin with connecting doors. It seems like it wouldn't be nearly as soundproof as a regular cabin. Of course I haven't been in one of those rooms so I don't really have anything to base that on...

I agree....I think the Coral/Island have the most offenders for this because of the HC being forward. Especially in Alaska. :(
