Mini-Suite with Balcony Cabins 37 Reviews
A mini-suite with balcony is substantially larger than a balcony stateroom. Accommodations include two twin beds that make up into a queen-size bed. A separate sitting area features a sofa bed and desk for lounging, entertaining or writing. Other amenities include a welcome glass of champagne, two televisions, a refrigerator and a walk-in closet. Your full bath includes a combined tub and massage shower head. Approximately 323 square feet, including balcony.

Always cleaned. Spacious enough for three people. Bunk bed creaked a lot even when the ship was on fair waters, and the noise from the deck above made sleeping impossible until 2-3 am...when the dropping and dragging (of what sounded like heavy furniture) stopped.  Read entire member review.
The balcony cabin on crown is just perfect for 2 people. Small bath room and shower but we made out fine  Read entire member review.
D317 - Dolphin deck, convenient location to the elevators and stairs, quiet. We enjoyed the exposed balcony.  Read entire member review.
Our category AB mini-suite D317 was located quite near to mid ship and was convenient to both the forward and middle stairways and elevators, although NOT very convenient to the rear stairways and elevators down to the Botticelli Dining Room. The mini-suite had the standard extra living room with triple sofa, chair and table, as well as two large flat-panel TVs - with one remote, spacious refrigerator that worked quite well. Our twin beds were really quite comfortable and the duvet coverings were very nice. Closet space was more than ample and the large bathroom boasted a standard-size bathtub with shower. The linens were very fine and the towels were thick and plush. Shower curtains were new and efficient. Furniture appeared to have been recently reupholstered. The FOUR chairs and table on our standard size balcony were in good repair and the railing had recently been refinished. Sounds from either side neighbors were almost non-existent: good sound-proofing. Overall, the cabin was in excellent condition.  Read entire member review.
Cabin D326, Dolphin deck is in an excellent location midway between the forward and center elevators. It was very quiet. The only thing wrong with it would be the sofa. It was not very comfortable to sit on for long. It looked like it needed to be replaced. The drawers in my bedside table were a bit sticky but otherwise everything in the cabin was good. They must have replaced the mattresses because they were very comfortable.  Read entire member review.
Not all good by pauline cocker
We had a mini suite which was excellent, plenty of space and the balcony was an added bonus. We were looked after excellently by our steward who catered for our every need without even asking him. Brilliant.  Read entire member review.
D330 - midway on port side of Dolphin deck. Like all Dolphin minisuites, the balcony is uncovered. Roomy enough for two so we didn't feel crowded. Two thermostats - we didnt find the second one for two days and froze since it was set to maximum cold.  Read entire member review.
Ida Didn't Stop Us!!! by luvbermuda
Close to elevator and stairs. Very small bathroom. The people above you can look at you from their balcony. Our view was the sea belwo us.  Read entire member review.
We had a mini suite on the Dolphin deck and it was great. Lots of room, lots of storage for clothing and stuff. A huge(by cruise ship standards) washroom!!! Had an extended balcony. Lots of room but lacked privacy because there are no balconies over head. Also, meant we got wet when it rained but these disadvantages were far out weighed by the extra room on the balcony. We comfortably had four chairs and a table on it. We were cruising with friends and the stateroom attendant opened the divider between our balconies so we could visit back and forth easily. It was great! We were really spoiled with this stateroom. May never be able to go back to a standard stateroom again.  Read entire member review.
Low ceiling in tub area. I am 5'10". Sag in middle of queen bed (I realize it's two twins pushed together). Lots of storage area for clothes and knick knacks. Not enough outlets. Bring a power strip  Read entire member review.
D603 - uncovered balcony, but not a problem on a port intensive cruise in a cool climate. Typical Princess minisuite, but the first night, was very noisy since we could hear the stabilizers grinding. Also this is a deck or two above the tenders so you will hear those being deployed early in the morning.  Read entire member review.

D 615 - Lovely and spacious. Easy access to back elevators and stairs. A breeze to get to the Botticelli Dining Room. I would never, however, stay on Dolphin deck again. No covering on balcony. No privacy whatsoever. People peer down at you. No shelter from rain or sun. Do get a mini-suite, just not on this deck. Mini-suites offer much more room, two televisions,an extra long couch and a great big closet. The vanity area is tucked to the side so you can do your hair and your partner can still walk around. You'll never want a regular balcony again.

Good cabin and location on the ship, but staff/service elevators were right across the hall and occasionally there was noise coming from there. If you book a Dolphin balcony, remember there is not a roof on your deck.  Read entire member review.
D308 Handicapped only Wonderful cabin with a wall of closets, perfectly located steps from the forward elevators. Great balcony, wide open without the covering, which we love.  Read entire member review.
Decidedly Mediocre by ruthhawkins
Large couch, good storage, nice to have full size bath.  Read entire member review.
Very close to elevators - just off little hall. Fairly quiet.  Read entire member review.
