A larger version of a balcony stateroom includes all the same amenities, plus a comfortable sofa bed to relax and rejuvenate. This stateroom also offers some of the same amenities found in a mini-suite stateroom, including upgraded bathroom amenities, waffle bathrobe, terry cloth towels, and an upgraded duvet insert.
Our cabin was situated above the Princess Theater. Three times a day for six days we could hear the loud music from the shows in the theater. The worst was at 10:00 p.m. when we were in bed trying to sleep. Sound deadening material must have been omitted from the ship design. In addition, when we were at sea during high swells, a very loud banging noise could be heard in our cabin. The noise seemed to be coming from inside the wall or the ceiling. We called the Passenger Services Desk and an engineer was sent to our room to investigate. Neither he nor his assistant could determine where this noise was coming from. This noise ruined our sleep for three nights during the cruise. I would think Princess would have compensated us for our discomfort, but instead ignored the problem and didn't get it resolved. I suppose the next passengers in that stateroom will have to go through the same experience we did until eventually the problem will be fixed. Our room was nice, but hardly any room to maneuver for two people. The sofa bed was very uncomfortable as the cushions kept sliding off the folding box spring. The bath was small, and the water pressure was so bad it hardly reached my body during my showers. It was also difficult to regulate the water temperature. Televison had a nice variety of movies to watch, and the high definition screen made watching TV better than those old TVs. Princess should invest in signing up for Dish or Directv so a better variety of programs could be available.
