Paid the extra $$ for a mini suite as we were travelling with our 5 year old daughter. It was well worth it. Tons of storage, having 2 TVs was a great option and the bathroom was down right huge by cruise ship standards.  Read entire member review.
Cabin D310 was an excellent mini suite cabin. We had three adults in the cabin. It had excellent storage space, and actually having a bath TUB was enjoyable. Princess apparently no longer stocks the fridge. They would fill the PLASTIC picture with ice, but provided no water or drinks. There were two thermostats in the cabin, one for the main sleeping area, and the other for the sofa bed; a good addition for us since the third in our party did not like the same temperature as the rest of the cabin. It had an excellent view and a large balcony. One thing I personally did not like is that the balcony extended out so that all could see on your balcony from above. There was no privacy on the balcony.  Read entire member review.

Our stateroom is in the middle of the ship. With the big waves we just had a little shimmy. The bathroom in our stateroom had a tub, which was nice. It did provide more room than the small showers. So, if you don’t bring your glasses, here is how the tub knobs work. The top one is easy. It controls the shower head. Up is a shower; down it drains out the faucet. Next two knobs down. The top one is the off – on knob. The right directly below is the temperature. They are hard to see but there are temperature numbers on the knob.
The location of your stateroom is the MOST important thing to consider when booking a cruise. Think about what activities you think you might participate in. How far from the dining room do you want to be? How from the pool? How far from the shore excursion deck? If you are just going to eat, book a stateroom AFT. Excursion every day – Front. Wherever your stateroom is there will be LOTS of walking. We are used to walking every day, but there was a lot of walking on the ship. The boat is long. From room, to breakfast, to pool, to lunch, to excursion, to room, to dinner, to shows, to room. There is lots of area to cover. Wear not only comfy shoes but walk to get prepared.
Location is also important when the seas get rough. The crossings are in open water. WE had high seas with high winds. The winds were strong enough to cancel the Ultimate Deck Party one night. The water in one of the pools had 4 foot waves in it. It was crashing over the seating area that surrounds the pool. But mid-ship wasn’t that bad. Towards the front of the boat it rocks up and down, slowly heaving in and out of the waves. In the back of the boat there was a severe shimmy. Mid-ship you could hear the walls creaking and things shifting, but with just a little movement.

Across from the laundry but no noise or negatives about it. The size of the room is nice and loved having the extra room in the bathroom. The balcony was uncovered, but it wasn't too bad, since the temperature wasn't too hot during this week. It was really nice to have a full sky view at night.  Read entire member review.
Room D732 was an great room because we were able to enjoy an extra large deck without having to pay extra. I also liked how the decks are tiered. We were able to enjoy the sun without having to go fight for chairs by the pool and listen to music from our Iphones on a radio we brought. The negatives on the room were too low of a shower head for me and the pretty current movies were nice, but the TV selection was very very limited to news channels, love boat repeats and some ESPN besides the same movie being repeated over and over again. Lots of closet space was really nice. It is in the back though if that bothers you  Read entire member review.
Great quiet mini-suite. Did not hear any noise at all from Club Fusion below. Loved the covered balcony... Would book again.  Read entire member review.
Wonderful cabin. Did not mind the aft location at all. Very quiet and loved the fully covered balcony. The room size was great and liked the separate little closet area and full bathtub.  Read entire member review.

Cabin E726. It was perfect with plenty of storage space and lots of hangers. The bathroom exceeded my expectations as I had heard it was small but I guess it is all relative - we had lovely fresh towels twice a day and bath products. We were in the aft area and loved the quietness of the cabin - and privacy. It was handy for the elevators too with level 15 easily reached (for buffet breakfast). The laundry was close too - and usually available (I used it twice with no waiting). We also liked the stairway to the 7th floor where we could just go on the promenade .. I would book this cabin again !

You never know unless you go by cunardalltheway
E727 is a mini-suite, though comparable to the princess sized cabins on Cunards queens. A quiet enough and well sized room, but when the pods are in action when either docking or pushing off, the vibration is unusually fierce. Not just in the cabin, but throughout the whole of the rear of the ship. Not good for early morning docks; unplanned wake up calls. Balcony is average, not a lot of space and the furniture is so tired its starting to look well used by bums or all sizes.  Read entire member review.
Great family vacation by cruisequilter
The best balcony, lots of storage, quiet location, would book again and mark "no upgrade".  Read entire member review.
