I liked my cabin but couldn't use the balcony as the weather was so bad throughout the voyage. This has happened before, so be sure to check out the weather forecast before you book this expensive option. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom larger than on previous cruises. The TV was okay - I saw some good free movies, and there were some watchable TV stations, but not many. The Port Talks on the TV were unwatchably boring.As always, my steward was amazing, so no faulting of service there. However, room service was terrible! No attempt to present food in an appealing way. I used it only twice, then gave up. A final warning - don't book a cabin too far forward! I had to walk the length of the ship to get to any of the food venues, which are ALL AFT. Read entire member review >>
Usual standard that we've come to expect from Princess. Cabin steward fantastic, shower curtain ugh!, balcony a little worn, bed comfortable, plenty of storage.
Wow! A kettle in the cabin and a plug socket that fits a UK plug. No noise from outside. Slept really well. Read entire member review >>
Very happy with our choice of cabin. Balcony is small but does give the option to spend time outside when you don't want to go to a public area. Wardrobe and storage space was great. Shower is a little small. Bed comfort is certainly enhanced if you ask for an "egg crate" mattress topper. Our cabin steward was unobtrusive, friendly and extremely helpful - in fact he could not have done a better job.We found that we had to leave our AC set at the coldest temperature to feel any benefit and also asked our steward for a sheet rather than the normal comforter.

The Aloha Deck Balcony was roomy for 2 and located on the portside midships. IT was convenient to the Lido Deck for glacier viewing and the pool and buffets. I might switch to Deck 11 since there would be less noise from the public decks above. Read entire member review >>
