Cabin Rating

The mini suite was a nice size. Bed was fair but the linens were old, gray and the bottom sheet had a hole in it. No top sheet, just the comfort ! Bath towels were like sandpaper and only one robe. We would have enjoyed having a balcony with no one right over us looking down. We were close to the elevator, which was great.

Disappointing by kathleen3630

Room was spacious and comfortable. The only complaint was that there was no cover over the balcony (we were on Dolphin (9). I did not realize this when booking. Last year we had a room on 12, which was great as you have a roof over your head and people cannot look down upon you.

Cabin D719. Please see my survey report as I pointed out all the noise problems with this room. There are lifeboats suspended below this room and they were doing maintenance on them during our cruise. The noise from all the hammering were unbearable at times, and paint thinner fumes filled our room on the third day. The laundry room is right across the hall and it was convenient for doing our laundry. The balcony was great and the view was wonderful.

E 728
Our mini-suite has a very large closet, with additional shelves in yet another closet. Rather small bathroom, but it had a tub. So who stays in a bathroom for too long anyway? :-) The space-usage was very well done in our cabin. Lots of drawer and counter space. Very nice-sized cabin.  Read entire member review.
April Fools by BaciX5
Average balcony room. Have had better.  Read entire member review.
We had an AD Mini-suite with covered balcony. Sitting area, queen size bed when two beds pushed together. Two flat screen TVs with remotes, bathtub. Plenty of room for clothes and luggage. Our large suitcase did not fit under the bed as it does other lines. Never enough outlets! We took a plug that had five more places to plug into it. Location was quite and right around the corner from elevators. It was a little distance from the laundry room.  Read entire member review.
First Princess Cruise by Queen of the Queen
We had a mini suite, great closet and storage space, two TV's! Nice size bathroom with a tub. Enjoyed the separate seating area with more shelf and drawer space. Nice size balcony with two chairs, foot rests and a table. We were on the deck with a covered balcony and it gave lots of privacy.  Read entire member review.
This was my first experience with a mini-suite on Emerald Deck 8, one of the 12, which are the only mini-suites aboard ship to have COVERED balconies, and I found it to be an excellent choice. Although near the aft of the ship with a bit more sea motion than midships, Emerald Deck 8 is the lowest passenger deck offering balconies, and the lower the better as far as sea motion is concerned. Mini-suites, of course, have about half as much more space than a balcony stateroom, with a sitting area furnished with a triple sofa, chair and table. Also the TWO flat-panel LCD TVs - one facing the "living room" and one facing the bedroom are most convenient. A major asset of a mini-suite is the LARGE bathroom complete with tub and shower. The over-sized closet area is also a definite plus. We had much more storage space: closet and drawers, that we could use. I will never be happy with an ordinary balcony stateroom again!  Read entire member review.
Great cabin, balcony was covered, private and quiet. Large bathroom and closet, plenty of drawers and shelves to store belongings. 4 of us stayed in this cabin. My two sisters on the twin beds, I slept on the pull out couch and my teenage daughter slept on the upper birth. We had plenty of room for all our belongings. The cabin is at the back of the ship and we could hear the ship's engines. We were also over one of the theaters and if we went to bed early we could hear the late show. It did not bother me but it might bother a light sleeper. Ear plugs should be considered. The cabin is also a rather long walk from the elevators but with all the good food we ate, walking was a good thing!!  Read entire member review.
Cruising to Hawaii by Kruising Katt
E728 is in a quiet location and close to the aft elevators. There is plenty of storage space and a large closet. The balcony is extended but can be too cold and windy for comfortable use on sea days. The sofa sitting area makes things much nicer than having just the bed and a chair to sit on like the balcony rooms. The bath is small but adequate. It has a tub with shower.  Read entire member review.
The interior of the cabin is a standard mini-suite. The balcony is extra-long (about 2x normal length)and provides an unobstructed view to the rear as well as to the side. It is completely covered and very private - only your immediate neighbor to the right can look around the solid partition. The stage of the Vista Lounge is immediately below; noise is an issue on nights when there is a musical act in the that Lounge.  Read entire member review.
Golden Princess Cabin E728 has an amazing covered balcony. It spoiled us for other future cabins.  Read entire member review.
Nicely sized, ample bathroom. Quiet location. Convenient to our favorite places, traditional dining room, buffet, Vista lounge. Able to unpack for 3 people in closet and shelves no problem and all suitcases fit under the bed. Did not feel excessive movement towards aft as I had feared. Laundry nearby was not a factor at all.  Read entire member review.
