Cabin was comfortable but I thought is was a lot smaller than suites on previous cruises done. Walking around and in bathroom we tripped over each other. Balcony only had seats and not lounges. Good wardrobe area with plenty of shelves as well. The cabin staff were excellent, but didn't do the towel animals, did like that on other cruises.

Avoid if you don't like noise. The luggage delivery door is right across from your front door. So for 2 nights it can be noisy. As stated, trash on balcony, refigertor dirty.

Good location, quiet. The mini-suite is good for longer sailings. You'll love the bathtub! Balcony is uncovered and visible from above.  Read entire member review.

Great room, like that we had a tub, gave us a little more shower room. Room steward was good

nice location but there was a loud banging sound once in a while under our cabin - we think it may have been the employee elevator or something.  Read entire member review.
This cabin was in a great spot. Midship so you don't feel the rolls so much and not too high up. This is Port side and we saw most places coming into port off our balcony. Not noisy, great cabin.  Read entire member review.
Lovely mini suite, close to centre of ship which means less movement if the sea is rough. The bed was comfortable with the enhancement of egg crate mattress. Sofa bed again comfortable but we understood that there were 3 egg crate mattresses on it. Balcony spacious, plenty of room for 3 adults, furnished with four chairs and a table. The balcony is uncovered which was fine for us as but could be a problem if you like privacy as everyone above can see into it. Bathroom average, very clean but in dire need of a refit. The bath was marked, the grouting between the tiles were discoloured but again spotlessly clean. The shower was looking old too but again clean. We found it very difficult to work out how the shower/bath worked. You had to regulate the temperature every time as from what we could see the only way to turn the water off was to turn both knobs off thus losing the heat setting. Toilet worked well. The cabin was in a really good position as you were never too far from anything. Our room steward Jimmy was marvelous, always happy and helpful. I would recommend this mini suite, especially after the refit!  Read entire member review.
The Princess mini suites are very very nice. There is a queen size bed and a separate sitting room. There are two flat screen TV's, a dressing table with hair dryer and a large open closet area with plenty of room. there are also some open shelves behind a set of mirrored doors. The bathroom has a tub - shower combination and a sink with space to put stuff as well as a shelf below for more bathroom things. For us, it is a perfect arrangement and we are willing to pay the extra $$ to have the space. We booked on the Dolphin Deck which is #nine. It is an easy walk up and down the stairs to get to the promenade deck where most of the action takes place. Our room was quiet, but we booked it because it was not near the elevators or the laundry. Balcony was big enough for 4 chairs. We did not mind that there were balconies above us where people could look down, but I talked to some people who did.  Read entire member review.
Good Service But... by illuminated2010

The cabin was a good size. There was lots of closet space. Good shower and good sized tub.
The sofa bed in the mini-suites were terrible. The mattress was not only thin but everytime you moved the bed wanted to fold up. I do not know how my kid could sleep on that bed for the whole trip.
Furniture around the room were very dusty, I know because I wiped down everything with Lysol wipes before storing my belongings.

Excellent view; big bathroom, nice balcony but can be seen from above; nice to have two TV's and a sitting area. D212

Speaker right outside - be prepared to be awakened up upon docking at a port!  Read entire member review.
