Family Memories by wethereyet
R507 was VERY noisy. My kids had it but I tried to sleep in it one night and it was HORRIBLE. I had to take down all the hangers in the closet as they were banging into eachother.  It is also right under the Lido deck and there is banging and dragging of chairs until about 2:30 each night.  It is big for an interior room but the size does not make up for the noise. I would have insisted to be moved if I was sleeping in there.

D411 was the antithesis. Quiet, and serene. We loved this room.   Read entire member review.
Nice midship location. No elevator noise at all. Typical Princess mini-suite.  Read entire member review.
Our cabin location was perfect. Close to the elevators so no racing around if you forgot something..absolutely no noise except for children running in the cabin overhead.  Read entire member review.
The cabin was really great - it had plenty of space, lots of storage. We were worried about how exposed the large balcony was, but that did not prove to be a problem, either for privacy or for shade. We were able to spend quite a bit of time out there, only driven indoors on a few occasion due to smokers on their balconies. That will change, however, with Princess's new smoking policy. Only problem was the bed was too soft. We will request a firmer mattress in future. I think it will be better if they simply remove the pad on top of the mattress.  Read entire member review.
D519 was in a great location. We heard NO NOISE whatsoever in the halls or in the surrounding cabins at night or early morning with the exception of one day. The morning we arrived at Princess Cays we heard a horrible loud engine sound directly outside our balcony. We discovered they were using one of the tenders that was located directly below our balcony. The noise lasted about 5 minutes. Our suitcases fit under our bed, the bathroom and shower were large, the closet was large, the bathroom had lots of space to store my toiletries, and the sitting area was large and comfortable.  Read entire member review.
We were assigned cabin D523 an AA category minisuite after booking an AE GTY. We were very pleased with the assignment. The location was very good as it was midship, but on the aft side, so it was very close to the mid-ship elevators while also not being that long a walk to the aft elevators. We found the space to be generous and thee overall layout to be excellent. The bathroom was decent-sized with a roomy tub and plenty of room for all of our toiletries. The closet and clothes cabinet was outstanding, with plenty of room for our hanging and folded clothes (and we are notorious heavy packers). The bedroom area was ample with plenty of room to move around the large bed and bedside tables, which also had a couple of drawers and a shelf for storage. The desk area was sufficient for all of our gadgets, including our laptop computer. The bedroom flat-screen TV was mounted in the top of the bar unit, which included a small refrigerator tucked away. Moving further into the cabin was the sitting area, which we found quite spacious. It easily accommodated a full-size sofa, an armchair and a cocktail table. There was another TV mounted above the additional storage unit that was the backside of the sleeping area unit. The flow was quite nice and there was ample lighting specific to each area that could be controlled separately. Moving beyond the sitting area was the balcony. The balcony size was sufficient and accommodated two chairs, two reclinable loungers and a cocktail table. While there is a great deal of debate over the dolphin deck balconies due to the fact that they are "open" in that they are staggered out, allowing those with balconies above to be able to look in, we really enjoyed the open balcony. On the transatlantic crossing, we used our balcony almost every day. Being on the starboard side, we had nearly full sunshine the entire day. Also, when I did glance up at balconies above, when I did see others on their balcony, they were gazing out at the ocean, not down at me. I would book another Dolphin deck balcony in a second. We experienced very little hallway noise and no noise from the cabins on either side unless we were both out on the balcony at the same time. The only downside that we experienced was, on the crossing segment of the sailing, when there was ship rolling from higher winds and seas, we heard a grinding/creaking noise from underneath our cabin. From our walks on the Promenade deck and a quick glance up, we realized that the tenders and survival boats were suspended below the Dolphin deck, beside the Emerald deck and overhanging the walking area of the Promenade deck. As the ship rolled, the tender under our cabin would move within the mechanism that held it suspended above the promenade deck, which caused the grinding/creaking. Fortunately, after the first tender port, when the tender below us was put back in place, the noise was no longer present.  Read entire member review.

Wonderful veiws from this cabin. Smaller than expected.

Spacious, comfortable, clean. Horrible balcony situation with total lack of privacy and exposure to elements and noise. Frequent smell of tobacco smoke.  Read entire member review.
great closet space, great balcony, across from elevator yet still very quiet.  Read entire member review.
We had AA with balcony on Dolphin deck. Absolutely no complaints. Perhaps having two TVs side by side is an unnecessary overkill. We were allowed to smoke on the balcony.  Read entire member review.
Lots of interior room, decent sized balcony, however it is totally exposed to the elements and anyone above.  Read entire member review.
