Substantially larger than a balcony stateroom, a mini-suite includes all the same amenities of a balcony stateroom, plus the added luxuries of a welcome glass of champagne, separate seating area, sofa bed, two flat screen televisions, marble top furniture, a closet and bathroom tub.
We found our mini-suite to be exceptionally spacious with a full-sized sofa, two flat-screened TV's, a sitting chair, a coffee table, a desk and chair, a full bathtub, a separate closet area with tons of wooden hangers, lots of cabinet storage, and a small balcony. As this is a new ship, all of the furnishings were in great shape, with the exception of the lamp shades, which were perpetually askew. I always appreciate when the mini-fridge isn't pre-stocked, so this allowed us to fill it with sparkling water and other beverages we wanted. Things were kept very clean with the only hiccup being one day there was a blood spot on our bed linens (not sure from whom) -- we called to have them replaced which was done. Our cabin steward was very friendly and attentive
Spacious cabin, two interactive, on-demand 42" TVs, sofa, curtain between sitting and sleeping areas. Very comfortable bed. Nice bathroom with huge sink for a cruise ship. Plenty of very nicely arranged storage. Balcony is standard size.
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.
Cabin was well designed but seemed slimmed down. Balcony just big enough for two. Toilet worked well, drains were slow, shower flow low. Single steward handled toilet and room - Princess should note that this is a disease vector. Walls thing like a cheap motel - be ready to listen to your neighbor's TV.
