Coral Princess Cruise, April 2007 -- End of Cruise

Wednesday, Port Everglades, Fort Lauderdale

Sunrise, Coral Princess, Port EvergladesThe Coral Princess arrived at the dock on schedule at 7:00 A.M.

You leave the ship according to the color of the luggage tags they give you the night before. We were lucky this time and were in the third group to be called.

After a very early breakfast, at 6:30, we went to one of the lounges to wait and they called our color about 20 minutes earlier than we expected. We were off the ship and looking for the Park'n'Cruise van at 8:00. Before 9:00 we were on Florida's Turnpike heading for Pensacola.
