I am trying to find the configuration of the Coral's mini suites (assuming they have them) and the decks they are on. The Princess site deck plan doesn't show any and the Cruisestateroom site does not yet show the ship.
Could anyone tell me where I might find the information?
Thanks

If you can get a hold of Princess' Fall 2002-Winter/Spring 2003 Panama Canal brochure, it shows the Coral Princess layouts. However, even in that brochure is a caveat that these are estimates and that the deck plans were not in the final form yet.

We have a mini-suite reserved for the April Panama Canal repositioning cruise. You've got your twin beds which can be made into one, a separate sitting area with sofa bed couch and desk, private balcony, 2 TVs, purportedly large closet, tub and show plus a refrigerator. Sounds nice.

Looking at that brochure to which Frank is referring, the Mini Suites are spread out a bit. AAs are forward on Baja, ABs are forward on Caribe and midship on Dolphin, AC are aft on Dolphin, ADs are midships (4 per deck) on Aloha and Baja, AEs are midships (4 cabins) on Caribe, and the AFs are extreme forward (4 per deck) on Baja and Caribe.

It's a *very* interesting layout, to be sure. The Coral isn't a "smooth sided" ship - the mini-suites are in areas which are a bit wider abeam than the rest of the ship. Or perhaps it's better described to say the regular balcony cabins are slightly inset into the ship, while the mini-suites are at full width. I can't wait to see her!

Princess has the Panama Canal brochures available right now (or did a couple weeks ago) and are getting them out pretty quickly. I'd give them a call at 1-800-PRINCESS.
