Went on Island Princess last April, sister ship to Coral. There were plenty of sunbeds and deck space, so I would assume it will be the same on the Coral. The sunbeds near the pool do have pads but those on other decks do not - they are the plastic, fabric type material (hope you know what I mean - difficult to describe). Hope this helps. Enoy your cruise.

Hi, We sailed on Coral Princess in October and although we had a balcony cabin we used the sunbeds most days. On the first few days, there were no problems finding sunbeds or space on deck near the pool but as the week went on it became much busier. Often you couldn’t find space around the pool so we went to the quieter areas or onto the higher deck, where you could usually find some. It was good to be near the pool but as we just wanted to read and lounge in the sun the quieter areas were fine. Hope this helps a bit but I’m sure others will reply to your question. Enjoy your cruise-the staff on the ship were brilliant and the friendliest I’ve ever come across.

Thank you for your comments.Like you we really only want to lounge about and read on deck in reasonable comfort.

We sailed on the Coral Princess in November. All sun beds had pads on them. We found a quiet area at the stern near the splash pool very peaceful away from the children (little darlings were a little bit fiesty).

Probably different at Christmas coz it was really busy, but we had awful trouble finding 4 beds together if we hadn't claimed them early in the morning all I wanted was somewhere on the shady side of the boat , not many of them and no umbrellas either for those who don't want to be fried. The beds were comfy though and had stripey plastic pads on them.

A Cruiser? Me Sir? No Sir?...

By Jodie Baldwin

My last blog was about my partner actually taking his first cruise . My blog today has been done by Mike who tells us about his first cruise experience. Today is part 1 with part 2 to follow next time. Here goes!The idea of a cruise never really ‘floated my boat’. Hundreds actually thousands of people lumped onto a vessel, fighting for space and corralled for a least a week . No- not for me. On the other hand , if your partner is employed by one of the largest cruise travel agenci...

Well I am back from my Italian holiday and I paid a visit to Trento, the capital city of Trentino Alto Adige in the north of Italy nestled between the Alps. The drive to Trento was lovely and the view driving through by car was amazing, we were surrounded my mountain by their white tips all the way there. Verona to Trento is about 1 hour and there are good train connections.We visited an Aeronautical museum of Giovan Battista Caproni, one of the most important engineers of Aeroplane’s h...

It seems to me these days that people spend so much time moaning and whingeing about this and that, nothing works like it should and nothing is ever good enough, I thought it nice to share the thoughts of this refreshingly positive chap recently stranded on the NCL Star out in Australia.Francis Lahue and his wife were passengers of the Norwegian Star as it faced engine problems last Friday morning after leaving port. The luxury cruise ship was forced to bob without direction 30km off the coas...
