Find Your Cruise
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.
Thanks Jean Thats answered my question.
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.
