The spacious approximately 210 to 234-square-foot Balcony stateroom is appointed with fine amenities and outstanding views from an approximately 35 to 72-square-foot private balcony. Some staterooms also have pullman beds to accommodate 3rd and 4th passengers.

Cabin BA 512. Worst bed ever. Very tiny shower. Great covered balcony suitable for even bad weather. Great unobstructed views. Plenty of storage.

Our fears of being right under the Horizon Court were unfounded. No noise from above whatsoever. In fact we were ideally located to fetch breakfast or anything else for that matter and return to our cabin in under a minute.  Read entire member review.

The Perfect Cruise by msoneday
Like I said earlier, we were extremely impressed with the cleanliness and new appearance of our room. No wear and tear anywhere. We were expecting a queen size bed in our balcony stateroom, but there is no doubt it was a king. My husband is 6' 4" and he and I fit fine with room to spare. The bathroom had a sink, toilet and shower all nicely fitting in a very small area. Twice a day the trash was emptied, fresh towels put in the room, and the bed straightened. The closet had ample room for both sets of clothes, our suitcases and shoes. We found the room comfortable and roomy enough with a desk, tv, refrig and small table. The air conditioner controls are in the room and adjustable, and we stayed plenty cold or cool and comfortable. The balcony was a nice size with two chairs and a table and partitions for privacy. I understand that the partitions can be folded/removed if you want to share with your neighbor or relative. Our room was right next to the stairs and elevators, and we were pleasantly surprised at how quiet our room was. Occasionally we heard a door slam, and we could hear our neighbors on their balcony if we had our door open, but we experienced no problems with noise.  Read entire member review.
Smooth Sailing cruise by Barb the travel lady
The shower was so tiny that if you dropped the soap part of you was outside the shower area. Water pressure and shower head were wonderful. Air exchange was excellent. Nice balcony with 4 chairs and a table. Chair framing needed help as the finish was corroding. Wood railings in all the rooms around us had varnish peeling.  Read entire member review.
Wonderful ship by lkrcanada

Bitten by the Cruise Bug by bitacruising

We had a great cabin, C502. No noise coming from outside at all and was close to elevators and stairs. Felt like we had plenty of space. View of glaciers was great since it was on starboard side on SB cruise

Large balcony. Lots of storage and lots of extra hangers. Did not like the "bump out" which blocked our view to the front of the ship.  Read entire member review.
Typical cabin with queen bed. Sufficient storage and closet space for all clothes, and storage of luggage under bed. Bathroom shower is exceptionally small but is typical of all Princess rooms that are not minisuites or suites. Balcony on Caribe deck is twice as large as on other decks; easily fits four chairs and a table large enough to eat breakfast on. The balcony is half covered and half open to the decks above. Great midship location, close to midship stairs and elevators.  Read entire member review.
Our accessible cabin was safe for me given my limitations. The bath had lots of grab bars which I greatly appreciated. The shower has a seat. There is sufficient room to store a scooter in the room. The bathroom floor does get wet when you use the shower. The shower can be hand held.  Read entire member review.
Good sized balcony but with a somewhat restricted view fore and aft. The balcony tended to be very hot in the afternoons. a higher stateroom would have had more shade. The shower was tiny. Good storage.  Read entire member review.

If you can swing it go with a balcony, or mini-suite (tub) included ! Midship is a smoother ride, bow is rougher, stern is noiser  Read entire member review.
