Oceanview Double with Balcony Cabins 8 Reviews
A private balcony is just one of many fabulous features. These categories also include twin beds which make up into a comfortable queen-size bed, a refrigerator and TV, a spacious closet and a bath with shower.

Cabin was smaller than a similar cabin on Princess. Also, items were dated and worn. There were stains on the sheets, shower curtain and room curtain. Yuck!

Room B230 The cabin was small, but quiet. The balcony was lovely and when we were in port I could watch as we left the dock or came in to dock. I have to say that it wasn't "private" because they could see from the bridge if they looked. So nudity and sexy nightwear isn't a good idea.  Read entire member review.

B239- Baja Deck Starboard Side near the front of the boat. It was a nice location because it was a 3 stairway walk up to get to the Lido Deck. Or, you could go 3 floors down and be in the middle section of the boat. We were able to walk 90% of our time rather than spend time waiting on elevators that may never come. I might go one deck lower next time. We did not notice any real movement in the boat by being on the front-my wife was worried about that. It was a nice balcony cabin.

Caribe BE Balconies on the starboard side. We had C227 and my aunt and uncle were C231. We had them open the small connecting door on the balcony which made it very nice. The Caribe balconies are half covered half open. You can be seen from above but we really liked them. These balconies are really large about twice the size of the Baja and Aloha decks. Really worth it if you can get one. There were two chairs that the backs reclined along with foot type stools and a table. The cabin was great. Carpets were clean and without spots. The closet was big with lots of room for storage. There is a cupboard with many shelves to store your non-hanging items along with a small safe for valuables. We stored the luggage under the bed. The bathroom is very small with a shower curtain. I figured out that you could attach the pants hangers to the bottom of the shower curtain to keep it from touching you. The flat screen TV was nice and with lots of room to charge our electronics. The hair dryer attached to the wall is not powerful and did not dry my hair. I did bring my own so no worries there. I asked first thing for egg crates which made the beds very comfortable. We slept with the balcony door open every night. It was not cold enough for us in the room.

The Golden Princess is very similar to several other Princess ships we have been on (the Sapphire, Star, and Emerald) and, like the others, a very attractive ship with good use made of the cabin space. This was our first time booking a balcony, and we were surprised and pleased by how large it was, with plenty of room to accommodate all 5 of us traveling together.

We had B215 on deck 9. Bathroom usual . room looked slightly smaller than others we had stayed in but this may have been because of the balcony. Having the balcony was lovely especially on this type of holiday. It was our first and wont be our last. On other 7 day cruises we have not bothered with views and always had inside room. TV choice was good and they repeated the live talks from the rangers etc in the theatre. Daily "princess patter" giving low down on whats on that day. Plenty of hanging and shelves. Our hairdryer started smoking but was replaced asap. steward was great.  Read entire member review.
