Panama Canal - awesome! by Steve Roberts
The two mini-suites were fine. Three people slept in each with ample room. We also made good use of the balconies.  Read entire member review.
I liked my cabin -- the balcony was perfectly located to give a panoramic view of the Panama Canal transit BUT it took the full force of any wind (no windbreak). However, I really do dislike the ships with the staggered decks where you can see everyone else, and my balcony overlooked a lot of people.  Read entire member review.
Excellent cabin. Quiet, close to the "secret deck" on the bow, tons of storage. Very comfortable.  Read entire member review.

More a large standard balcony room than a suite, with the only real differences being 2 TVs (why?!) and an actual bath in the bathroom (which at least made the shower more usable)
Somewhat dated decor (strange choice of French country prints on the wall) but fine for a short cruise.
Reasonably sized balcony with 3 chairs and table (partially covered)
4th bed (sofa bed) had very thin mattress - ok for children, but would be upset if I'd paid full fare and got it!

We were in a category AB mini-suite on the Caribe Deck, portside, room C708.  I would highly recommend this room for a family of four.  It had a pull down bed that came down from the ceiling and became a bunk bed over the pull out sofa bed in the room.  The balcony was partially covered, which we like a lot for both sun and shade options.  It also seated four people comfortably.  The room had two televisions and a fridge. The views were great from this room, as well.  We also liked the proximity to the back area stern deck for viewing which was just a short distance away.  Port side heading north to Alaska was also the best side for viewing glaciers and for late afternoon sun.  Read entire member review.
Cabin worked great for us. We were as far back on the ship as you can be which had it pros and cons. We were a far walk form most of the eating places which were at the front of the ship but after the meals the walks felt good. The pluses were that it was quiet, near the laundry rooms which is the only place there is to iron clothes and a 10 second walk to the bag decks of the ship so if there was a wild like sighting on the other side of the ship you could quickly move from your cabin to the back decks to view the other side of the ship. Closet was a good size, held clothes for four. Deck was roomy enough for four. This room was OK for four as long as two are children. I would not recommend it for four adults since one of you will be sleeping in a pull out bunk in the ceiling.  Read entire member review.
Panaramic Panama by Cayoooga
The cabin was very spacious. Lots of closet room. Bunk bed comes out of ceiling. Had a bathtub, 2 televisions, balcony with 4 chairs and table.  Read entire member review.
Great closet/dressing area. Balconies on decks 10 and 11 look over into the balcony in this cabin. Not great privacy on the balcony.  Read entire member review.
Room is well positioned,close to the starboard forward side of the ship, near stairs and elevators. Room is spacious, bed is reasonably comfortable. Nice large bathroom with tub, shower, sink and toilet, lots of nooks and crannies. The built-in closet has lots of shelves, a safe (will not hold a laptop), and a large closet with several wooden hangers. Beside the bed are two night tables and several remote switches for the lighting controls; this is handy at night to use the bathroom. There is a digital wall-mount thermostat for the temperature control; it was sometimes difficult to regulate. One can use the vanity/desk for both dressing as well as notes, computer work, etc., and it is easy for someone to get by this area to go to the sitting area, which has a sofa bed, a chair and small table, or the balcony. There is a large centre built-in holding two small TV's, fridge, shelving, as well as two additional 110 v outlets. The balcony is somewhat small and it is not covered so there is no privacy from staterooms above, and it is easy for nosy neighbours to peer around a balcony divider. All in all, well worth paying extra to get a 'super-sized' balcony room.  Read entire member review.
D319 is located in the forward part of the ship, starboard side. Use the closest forward stairs for the Princess Theatre. These stairs stop at Deck 7. To go to Deck 6 and below, the easiest way is to go Mid-ship and use the stairs there. Coral has a strange lay-out on Deck 7 & 6. Some public rooms are only accessible on the Starboard side. So always stay on that side on your walkabout.  Read entire member review.
We had a mini suite - quite spacious, lovely linens on the beds, 2 TV's, full size sofa and chair in sitting area, spacious balcony that fit 4 chairs and small table and still room to stand to take pictures. Closet area had enough space, but nothing spectacular. Safe was small a mini laptop did not fit in it. Bathroom has a full size tub with shower head - kind of hard for elderly or disabled to step in and out of tub to take a shower. Nice location as there was no noise from above or below.  Read entire member review.

We had a mini-suite, nice decor and fairly large balcony on deck nine. Our cabin attendant was pretty good and very amenable and friendly even though he was probably burden by way too many cabins to service which often does not translate into fine personal service. Complimentary laundry service was excellent.

North To Alaska by grams98
D330--midship minisuite, great balcony and cabin layout; very quiet.  Read entire member review.
Cabin D408 was quiet. We were close to the lifts but didn't notice the hallway noise. Chairs and couch were comfortable to sit on. We noticed at times the cruisers in the cabin next to ours smoking. The balcony wasn't covered but it didn't cause any problems for us. The toilet was hard to flush at times. The bed was hard until our room steward brought us an egg crate to sleep on.  Read entire member review.
The cabin was wonderful. There was plenty of storage space. The bathroom was huge compared to the cabins we usually stay in. The balcony was large with four chairs. Absolutely nothing to complain about.  Read entire member review.
HOT HOT HOT!!! by nlbrock

AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL. Toilet problems in entire quadrant, air conditioning problems, hot water problems. Stay away

Though it was a mini suite and it came with a shower/tub combo, you really have to climb up to get into the tub. Anyone who is 6' or more would have to duck down. Cabin location was quiet and view from balcony was perfect.

Being so far in the front of the ship resulted in long walks to the spa or gym, but it was a definite advantage while going through the canal. Right above room service, so orders were delivered in 5 minutes. Pleased that our balcony was covered as many are not- information that I previously learned from CC  Read entire member review.
