Good cabin location to all areas of the ship. Cabin service was great. Quiet! Great balcony to see outside activities.  Read entire member review.
The room was pretty standard with lots of storage. The bed was very hard and by 2am your back would be hurting. We didn't use the balcony as much as on other cruises because of smokers in other cabins around and below us polluted the air to the point we couldn't stay out. Some of the cabin furnishings were in need of replacement; i.e., the bedspread had cigarette holes , the duvet was ripped in several areas, and the refrigerator didn't get things very cool. We normally stay on Deck 5 or 6. I can't see how being on Deck 12 was any upgrade from Deck 5 - I wouldn't pay more to be higher up on the ship. Princess must be assigning more rooms to each Cabin Stewart. Our Stewart worked pretty fast, but it still took him a long time to get to our room most days. It didn't used to be that way. We got good Internet reception in our room (free because we're Platinum).  Read entire member review.

Yes, the cabin is a little small, but it works for a couple. The balcony was a pleasant space to sit and enjoy the waters.

Spacious cabin. Great storage space even for 2 heavy packers with 3 large suitcases and carry-ons. Although located next to kids Fun Zone, no noise at night.  Read entire member review.
Alaska inside passage by
Baja deck cabin B323. The room size was good. About the size of a motel room. The shower is very small. If you are over 200 pounds and not over six feet tall it is tight. The balcony is very good, but if you are not a smoker you have to watch for your neighbors who will come out on thier balcony and light up. The views were great. You are high enough to see for a long way. The cabin is toward the middle of the ship so you don't fill the movement of the ship as much as our friends that were at the very back of the ship.  Read entire member review.
Partial Transit of Canal by Love2Dance4Me!
Perfect location, center of the ship just off the elevators. Very quiet.  Read entire member review.
Amazing by 21mel
Wonderfully view. Covered balcony was nice in the rain. I am so happy we got this room with the balcony. Beds were pretty comfortable, but the comforters need to be replaced. We used the third bed that pulled down from the ceiling. It was just as comfortable as the other beds but my pillows kept sliding thru the gap between the bed and wall. Getting up was no problem. Getting down the ladder took some practice, but by day 3 I was a pro. Tons of closet space for three people and enough hangers to go around. There were 3 shelves in the bathroom so our toiletries fit just fine. Luggage fit under the beds and in the closet. The shower is small. The curtain kept flipping out and we flooded the bathroom more than once. There is also 1 tiny shower shelf that will fit 1 body wash and the ships small shampoo and conditioner. Best tip I got was to bring the shower baskets that suction to the wall. And shaving your legs was challenging but doable if you turned the water off. Other than flooding the bathroom, LOVED IT! It's mid ship, so we had no traffic noise. Smooth sailing also. We didn't need the Dramamine we brought.  Read entire member review.
We loved our cabin....great views, quiet, not much hall noise.  Read entire member review.
Reasonable size cabin, good balcony, great wardrobe space, small shower. Balcony is double sized - partially covered and open area overlooked fro decks above. Shame that no tea and coffee making facility provided (we have had this on every other cruise we have been on).  Read entire member review.
