I was delighted with the position of the balcony (mid-ship) not far from the elavators which meant I did not have to search along long corridors and it was surprisingly quiet for its position. I was surprised how roomy it was especially the storage area. Ben my cabin steward was always cheery, helpful and efficient, respecting my wishes when I wanted privacy - I liked the evening turn-down service and the chocolates!

Everything you need except hair dryer with enough power to dry your hair. Alaska is the place to splurge on a balcony room!

We are medium sized people, the room was comfortable the bed was excellent - the best we had had on any cruise. Very quiet. We had been up graded from an Oceanview to this room with a balcony, so we were tickled pink.

We enjoyed the cabin very much considering it one of the best we have been in as far as layout is concerned. The double bed had plenty of room to walk between it an the wall and there was even a strip on the wall that would guide you in the middle of the night. The cupboards were adequate and as far as storage for shirts, pants, my suit, etc. it was good to have them out of the way of passage. Every once in a while it was close quarters when the bathroom door was opened, but that was an issue easily addressed. The cabinet for the safe was adequate to store lots of other clothes and I liked the way the safe operated. The bathroom was well laid out with plenty of storage place for toiletries. I had read the shower would be small, and it was, but it was manageable. As a side note, I did a lot of showering in the Spa, but my wife did all of hers in ours. I only hit the "grab bar" a few times and that really was not an issue. I loved the bed ... better than the king we have at home, so comfortable and I wish I could have taken the pillow. The balcony was small, but fully covered and that was appreciated. Two chairs and a small table were enough.

Our cabin was on the 12h th deck...close to the Horizon Court and pool. The room was quite and the AC worked wonderfully. There was ample space for our clothes and a very large closet. The shower was small but certainly adequate

Cabin A306 Coral Princess. This is a very standard balcony cabin on the Coral Princess. The room is directly outside of the forward stairs and elevators. We did NOT hear much noise at all with the door closed. The cabin is also directly below the bathroom outside of the Horizon Court Buffet and seating on Lido deck. We did ever hear any noise from above. Do not be concerned about the location of this cabin and noise. The elevators and stairs outside this cabin only go as far down as Deck 7. You end up at the theater and Wheelhouse Bar. Dining rooms, casino, some shops, are also on decks 5 and 6. You will need to walk aft to the center bank of elevators to have full access to decks or use the elevators outside of this cabin, go down to deck 7 and then walk to the center for other options to continue down. We did not find this to be a big deal but was a little confusing at first getting to know the ship. One deck up is the Lido deck. You are a quick flight of stairs and a few steps to the Horizon Court Buffet, Lido deck bars, pizza, MUTS, ice cream, and then only one more flight of stairs away from the burgers and great locations to view the glaciers, parks, etc. The balcony is a covered balcony and does offer great port side viewing. It is probably one of the more private balconies on the ship because of location. You could look down into several balconies but no one could really see onto yours except maybe your neighbors. There is a fairly large, 1 inch, gap in the privacy screen between balconies where the wall is hinged and can be opened if you know the people next to you and want to share balconies. Probably not a big deal to most but you may want to make sure your robe is always closed when you are making the trip out to see how warm you want to dress that day. There is nothing extra on size of this cabin. It is standard but does have adequate storage. The balcony is large enough for a small short table and a couple of chairs but if balcony space is important to you, this is not the one you should choose. Bathroom is small and the shower is even smaller. It did have great water pressure but as I'm a bigger/taller person, the handle and on/off valves do not seem to be placed very strategically. Everytime I tried to turn I would hit something with an elbow. There is a refrigerator and we thought it worked well. Lighting is fine with a few options for how much light you need. Night stand only, full room, over desk, balcony only, closet only, and bathroom. Finally the beds. Probably in my opinion the only reason I would not choose this room again. For us, they were hard, really hard. We sleep on a very soft bed normally and I did not have very good luck getting a good nights sleep because I thought the beds very very uncomfortable. This is the one aspect to the room that I would change. Other than that you will get a very standard cabin on a high deck.

Cabin was fine, good storage, and with the requested 'eggcrates' the mattrsses o.k. Shower TOO SMALL, I'm by no means the largest passenger, and it was not good. Balcony small, and IF you had a 'smoker' nearby, you had to shut the door quickly, it sucked the smoke right in! Thank you Princess, w/new rules, 1-2012, I, for one appreciate that. Bedding, duvet, over light down alternative, comfortable, and clean feeling. No shower gel, shower cap, or room Kleenex, and this is in a balcony! Steward says only in 'mini-suite' and above????? No ice, water, unless requested with room service? Room service trays had little 'medicine cups' holding 'paper salt and peppers'?? Whatever. I am not an elitest, but Celebrity, and HAL have spoiled me!

B727 - Inside. Quiet, handy to laundry, close to little used aft deck on Baja. B737 - Balcony. No overhang so not so private as those a little farther forward. Very quiet, handy to laundry, close to little used aft deck on Baja. Both cabins fairly close to aft stairs/elevator for access to spa/gym/Sanctuary up or Universe Lounge down.

Surprised that next door neighbors on the balcony didn't say hi when we'd all be out on the balconies.

Loved the location of our cabin, B418. We like the Baja deck the best because of the balconies; no one can look down on you from above so they are quite private. Also, the room was just big enough for two people to share, and we were close to the elevators. Our room steward, Morris, wasn't as attentive as some we've had in the past, but if we ask for anything he made sure to provide it. Quite surprisingly there is ample storage space in these rooms also.

D 208, 210 and 212 were cabins for our group. We had ample room for two in each cabin. Enjoyed being outside viewing the incredible sights passing by. I think that next time I would opt for a cabin more towards mid-ship.
