Small World Stories

After we first boarded the Coral Princess on January 24th for our Panama Canal cruise, we went to the Horizon Court for a buffet lunch. Of course we simply sat down at an available table, where two other people were already seated. Had a nice conversation and then we excused ourselves.

The following day was the Meet and Mingle for Cruise Critic members who had signed up on the forum roll call. Would you believe the couple we arbitrarily had lunch with yesterday were members of the Cruise Critic group? Out of 2000 passengers, we meet one of the 37 couples who had registered on the Roll Call.

Then I walked into the casino and recognized a dealer who I had met on the Pacific Princess. He recognized me too and even asked ‘where is the family?’ as we had traveled with a group of 14 on that sailing. He joined the Coral Princess same day we boarded.

And lastly, there were two big ships in port in Aruba…us and the Jewel of the Seas. We are walking down the street in Oranjestaad and my husband hears his name being called. Former co-worker is also in Oranjestaad, off of the Jewel of the Seas.

It’s a very small world.
