During fall, winter and spring, the Coral Princess runs 11-day Panama Canal partial-transit cruises with stops in Cartagena, Colombia, Colon, Panama, either Ocho Rios, Jamaica, or Grand Cayman (alternating cruises), Limon, Costa Rica, and Oranjestad, Aruba, with Fort Lauderdale, Florida, as its turnaround port.
Accidents and Incidents
On May 2, 2013, Coral Princess suffered a fire. It was quickly extinguished without anyone onboard being injured. The fire itself was confined to a storage locker in the engine room. While there were no injuries, a suite stateroom on Deck 9 was flooded when the in-room sprinkler went off following the fire.
