The room steward is a key crew member as he/she sets the tone and is the first impression one gets from the ship. In our case, she either needed more training or was overwhelmed by her duties. On arrival there were no hand towels in the room. She had to be asked twice for them to appear the next day She would remove dirty glasses but not replace them with clean ones. It took a day before we got our gifts cards (2) and our excursions booking. On the second day at sea I enquired at the Captain’ Circle desk about the cocktail for platinum, elite, and suite passengers only to be told that my invitation should have been in my room on arrival. The room was fine with ample storage space. The bed was excellent. The bathroom is small but quite acceptable except for the shower. The space is minuscule, the shower curtain is always clinging and who knows when it was last cleaned. In addition, there is no bath soap but rather two gel dispensers attached to the wall. We now carry our own soap dish and bath soap bar just like in developing countries... Princess can do better that that.

The cabin was in a great location on the ship. Right next to the stairs and elevators. We were next door to our friends, and able to open the balcony door, so it was shared. Plenty of storage space, although shower was hard to maneuver in. The bed seemed bigger than a queen. Possibly even a king? LOVED having the balcony!

This cabin is right off the elevator hall and we had reservations about it at first for that reason. As it turned out it was very quiet and not a problem at all, we were very comfortable. We think we had a bonus in this area because we were right next to three suites and had the steward who cared for those who we think was very adept at pleasing people and keeping the place spotless. Very good spot on the ship and we would book this one again.

B706 aft portside cabin -- quiet and smooth, near the laundry, good views while sailing south, nice small balcony with 2 chairs and small round table -- good for viewing, reading, writing, and relaxing.

The cabin attendant worked alone and kept the cabin clean and ready for us. We were given a handicapped balcony cabin, although we do not require it (we were on a BD guarantee and assigned this cabin). The only negative to this was that the shower was a large area with only a shower curtain and drainage track on the floor to define the space. Unfortunately, with each shower, the floor past the drains would flood and leave a wet mess in the bathroom. Talking with our neighbors who were also in a handicapped cabin we learned that they, too, had the same problem. The cabin attendant was very familiar with this problem and gave us each extra towels to place around the drain areas to "dam up" the water and then soak up the wet areas. What a mess for the cabin attendant, and an little inconvenient for us, but not enough to detract from the benefits of a much larger cabin and at least 50% larger balcony! Still, this drainage problem needs a little work (and redesign) by Princess.

You do lose a little aft viewing angle as the balcony to your left extends out past this cabin's, but it is still a nice large balcony. The extra space in the cabin, however, was just superb. There were two dressers with four large drawers each and two separate hanging closest with enough room for both DH and my items.

As a handicapped room, however, there were only two very tiny open glass shelves for items in the bathroom, so I kept only our toothbrushes and toothpaste in the bathroom, the rest on the full dresser on my side of the bed. Hair dryer worked fine, and I have long hair.

It was also only a short walk (maybe 15 feet) to the aft elevator bank, but a much longer walk to the dining rooms and café, which were both forward on the ship. Room was very quiet and private even though there was traffic going to the aft elevators that passed the cabin.

AMAZING ALASKA Shelpaint

Our cabin was Dolphin (Deck 9 - fore) 228, with a balcony. Quiet location, great view, 2 floors above the Princess Theatre. We loved our state room and had no issues or complaints.

Our balcony cabin is the last one towards the stern on the port side. There is a large public balcony across the stern. This public balcony provides extra viewing opportunities, especially when transiting the Panama Canal.

We thought this cabin was adequate in size and ammenities. We loved the half-covered balcony. We enjoyed this location at the rear of the ship - very quiet and really close to elevators and laundry.

Aloha 722 Last cabin at back of ship. Long walk to all the restaurants. No room for a sofa in the cabin and there was 1 desk chair and one small uncomfortable chair. We had sofas on both Celebrity ships in the past. Balcony small but OK. Tiny shower in bathroom. Big closet.

Amazing Panama Canal beachbaby830
Quiet cabin even though near elevator. Good balcony, but would have loved loungers on the balcony rather than just chairs.

We had a great balcony with plenty of room. Had four chairs and a small table. Had plenty of room in the cabin for our clothes. Closet space was more than adequate. Very small shower, but that's OK. We were next to an elevator and never heard any noise. Our balcony was partially covered.

New flat screen TV would have been nice. Shower, although serviceable, could be larger Loved the location - quiet, easy location, fantastic balcony view, absolutely perfect cabin stewardess. Would love to try mini-suite for balcony (or less) price. Wonderful decor in cabin. simple, easy-on-the-eye color. Loved the non-skid flooring on the balcony.

Perfect size for two people, with a balcony big enough for two chairs and a table. It was great to have through the Canal. Big closet, small shower and hard beds.

Quite a good location, near the aft stairs but noise free. Short walk to the Atrium for the dining room, but a bit longer for Horizon court. Good sized 7ftX9ft balcony with 2 recliners, 2 chairs and table. Short walk to the aft Caribe Laundromat.
