The cabin is more than adequate. Great closet space, could use a bit more shelving but not that much of a problem. The room gets a bit cramped with four in it, so i would recommend two or three. The balcony is terrific and private, as opposed to those you are looking down at. I would recommend this room and category on this ship.

This room was way bigger and more airy than I thought it would be. It was very clean; I only noticed one light scuff mark on one wall. We had a comfortable queen bed, make-up table and mirror, 2 bedside tables and lamps. The balcony has two chairs and a small table that often doubled as an ottoman for us. The cool thing about this balcony was that the levels above it extend as far from the boat as ours did, so no one above us could look down on us.

Very spacious and comfortable - better than most hotels. Lots of storage space. Very good thermostat. Great access for wheelchair user. The only problem was that the electrical outlets were across the room from the head of the bed, where my husband needed to plug in his power chair charger and CPAP machine.

Great Time Great Price cruise vacationer

There is low level noise and vibration but not annoying. At the worst time, we turn our pliilows the other way and feel no problem. That only occurred once for a few hours. The toilet is vaccum operated and worked fine.

D735

We had a aft-facing balcony cabin on the Dolphin deck (D735). We chose this cabin after reading some reviews advising that aft-facing cabins are better than side balconies. The balcony is bigger and it is nice having a different view and less wind. Also, this cabin only has a neighbor on one side so it is quiet. On the down side, I noticed a smell of sewage when I opened the door to the shelves that contain the safe. It was especially bad the first couple of days, but was only a problem when standing near it. The other negative of the aft cabins is the time and effort it takes to get to the front of the ship. It's like walking a block or so. I had read that the third person in our cabin would be on a roll-away bed. That didn't happen. I slept on the pull down bed. Those beds aren't bad, but I recommend asking the cabin steward to add an egg crate to make it more comfortable. Also, in this cabin, the ladder to the pull-down bed was difficult to place without blocking the path to the bathroom. Bottom line is, if money is anything of an issue, I won't pay extra for the aft-facing cabin in the future.

Room nice. but small. Like the room split from bathroom by closet & gives some separation from the hallway. Bathroom tiny but met needs. Shower is small & if your 6"FT and above god help you. Beds are beat up. Not very comfortable and seem well used. Wife's side of bed must have had some heavy people and seemed bent in middle. I don't know why they cant have a 2 person couch.

Princess is one of the best cruise line in regard to wheelchair accessible cabins. They are spacious, comfortable and easily accessible, mostly located near forward elevators. Nice balcony, although the ones on Caribe Deck are more spacious.

Standard cabin. No wardrobe doors - a great help and should be copied by all cruise lines in small spaces.

Double AA Mini Suite - old, dirty and almost everything not functioning properly if at all. Shame as on other Princess ships this did not happen! Just on the Crown.

Balcony was nice. We had a quad and sardined all of us into the one room. I would NOT recommend this! Nobody could watch TV once the upper berths were down, and it was claustrophobic. Kids did not like the upper berths, so my poor husband slept up there -- and I slept in my mother's room! The outer edges of upper berths were so sharp, we cut our arms and the kids kicked their heads. We started putting them up when we got up - not difficult to do.

We liked our 2 mini suites on Dolphin. In particular we liked the bath and extra room in the bathroom and the sitting area. Negative? The balcony chairs were worn and had holes and the deck matting on the balcony was dirty - it was stained and needed replacing.

Great balcony - half covered, half open. Cabin was small, but plenty of closet and storage space. Cabin was layed out very well.
