Tiny wardrobe with no doors and right next to bathroom.very few drawers.Wonderful balcony biggest on ship as has 4 chairs not 2 like other floors so best deck to be on. Quiet and near laundrette and lifts. Steward very good and cabin air conditioning OK but you can't turn it off.  Read entire member review.
A239
A239 - Has the same cramped bathroom and closet that you expect. The balcony was a little better than some because others could not see into it. AC was very variable.  Read entire member review.

Can I get a do over? by Outdoorguy236
Room with Balcony was dated, contained broken bedside lamp and shelf railing. Chunks of wood missing from furniture. Carpet overdue for replacement. Plenty of storage and hangers. Bath a bit small. The bed was like sleeping on a short slab of granite.  Read entire member review.
A335
No drawers at all for storage. Stable location, quiet. Tiny closet.  Read entire member review.
A418
A418 very close to the midship elevators but noise didn't intrude. Beware that the Lido deck with pool and buffet is directly above, so you will hear noise from movement there. Also, the balcony is completely covered over, so you won't get a lot of sunshine unless it is morning or evening when the sun is not directly above the ship.  Read entire member review.

I Love Sea Days by Sea watcher
B622 is a good cabin. A bit far from the elevators, but not too bouncy even in the gale, and very quiet. The balconies on Baja deck seem smaller than on the two decks below - which you overlook as the ship has staggered balconies - but that wasn't a problem.  Read entire member review.

good location near stairs and elevator but across from crew access door so can be noisy. balcony often had standing water. balcony door frame had what looked like a mouse hole in it, wind whistled in -- stopped noise by plugging with paper napkins. grand princess has small closets and shower stalls  Read entire member review.
C308
Typical cabin in decor and size. The balcony was nice and large but minimal furniture made it not user friendly. I found the shower a decent size and perhaps it was a mite bigger than the others? It was close to the laundry room but not noisy in any way. Very close to the forward elevators but a real hike to the buffet and the pool every day.  Read entire member review.

Cabin Caribe 324-category BA, midship, starboard. Bathroom seemed slightly bigger than previous ships, cabin itself slightly smaller, but balcony bigger.  Read entire member review.
C329
Caribe C329: a great location, just forward of midships with the great part-covered larger balcony with reasonable furniture. The only issue we had was while sailing through a storm in the Bay of Biscay it was very noisy - something 'upstairs' above our bathroom was banging very loudly. It went on most of the night, until the storm abated, so although it sounded like a heavy door swinging back and forward it wasn't (we were under another cabin and our steward checked with his colleague on the next deck up) There were no other problems with the cabin, plenty of bathroom storage, the clothing cabinet has tiny shelves, but we coped OK. The shelf in the shower is minute, no room for soap plus shampoos and conditioner, so I was pleased that I'd brought a really cheap 'over-the-door' organiser which I could reach from the shower.  Read entire member review.

Yes......But! by righttouch

Cabin is well located between two sets of elevator clusters. It is mid ship and easily accessible.
Décor is in need of renovation and updating. Very worn and old. Veranda was a good size, partially covered. Veranda furniture old and uncomfortable. Size of cabin is very good.

Cabin was perfectly adequate had the usual facilities. Wardrobe had no doors, not unusual but I prefer doors. Great balcony, large had a table and 4 chairs 2 of which would lay back almost flat. I liked the way the balcony cabins are staggered and not all on top of each other, seemed to mean more sun reached the balcony than my previous experiences. Balcony a bit weathered but ship is getting old, not a problem for me.  Read entire member review.

Norwegian Fjords by MainePrincess
Cabin C519 - The balcony is larger on the Caribe deck than on other Grand Princess decks - part of it is covered, and part is open. Being on the starboard side was a great advantage for the sailing into ports. The room has twin beds that do not make up into a queen, so it is great for two people who are not a couple to share. Caribe is Deck 10, so it is a convenient location to go up to the pool decks/buffet, or down to the dining rooms, lounges, and promenade deck.  Read entire member review.

Caribe 602. Surprised how quiet this was. Extended balcony to ones on other decks which maximised the sun opportunities for a port side but still allowing some cover from other balconies if you wanted it.  Read entire member review.

Great balcony and view. Shower is larger than normal cabins. A/C worked great. Bathroom worked great. Safe worked great. Closet smaller than normal. Mattress needs replacing. Everything was clean and worked without any problems.  Read entire member review.
L-231
We found our cabin, L-231 to be pleasant, nice location and quiet. We normally pick a cabin more aft and lower deck, so this was a pleasant surprise, although we had very calm seas during the entire cruise.  Read entire member review.

Great cabin, near the front, quiet hallway, away from main traffic areas, one floor down from Lido deck  Read entire member review.

Baja 504 - really well sound proofed from neighbouring rooms and corridor noise. Well maintained. Adequate hanging and cupboard space for 2 adults & 1 child on a week long cruise. Good, unobstructed view from the balcony. The balcony was showing some signs of rust around the partitions, but nothing unbearable.  Read entire member review.

The Grand that Wasn't by Sailawaynow
The cabin was spacious enough and the balcony is huge. The closet is small and the bathroom is typical princess. This mid-ship cabin was quiet as far as ship noise is concerned but the walls are thin so noise from adjoining rooms could be heard. The cabin is near the mid-ship elevators making getting around the ship easy.  Read entire member review.

On Princess ships, the Dolphin deck (mini suites) have totally uncovered balconies, which are overlooked from all balcony levels above.  Read entire member review.

C515 this is a balcony cabin on Caribe deck has a bigger balcony than others as half is under cover and other half in the sun quite a few balconies on other decks seen to be all under cover except Dolphin deck were the mini suites are but the mini suites dont appear to have any shade. Small bathroom with a shower but we are both tall and not tiny and it was fine every thing worked well. Bed was quite hard which suited my husband we would have liked a little more wardrobe space and did not like the fact that when the door was open all our clothes were on show but this is the same in all the cabins except the suites There was the same about of room as in a standard hotel double,but was fine for us as we made use of the large balcony. it was clean and kept clean and tidy by the steward. I wasn't expecting any thing fantastic as this ship is having a refit in April not sure if the rooms will get refits though ???  Read entire member review.
