Cabin A437
Nov 2016
Great location close to lifts. Adequate size although the bathroom & shower are a little small. Whilst not shabby the cabin is ready for a facelift.

Cabin A437
Aug 2016
Far too small for two adults and one child but fine for 2 only. 3rd bed is lowered by steward each evening and is immediately over the main bed! It is unsettling for the sleepers who may as well be in a small bunk bed. You also feel it may collapse under certain sea conditions. Balcony was in need of painting and repair with rust and broken/corroded lock to next cabin. Could not get balcony door to lock. You can hear the next cabin's toilets flush and TV, etc. Hairs and dust in drawers and clothes storage.

Oh Dear ! By: koonard
Broken chest of drawers. Toilet got blocked 3 times. Balcony was dirty. Also funny sort of sheet things which were folded over the duvet and kept getting untangled ... you'd have to be there to understand. Lovely pillows and mattress.

Cabin A423
Apr 2016
A decent enough size, well laid out but not cleaned properly. Dust, dirt and things left from previous passengers under the bed and in the cupboards - they obviously do not check or clean thoroughly. There is no kettle or hot drink making facilities in the cabin and no iron either which is a nuisance.

Cabin A406
Mar 2016
My hubby and I stayed in balcony cabin A406 and it was roomy, clean and comfortable. The balcony had room for just a small table and two chairs, but it was mid-ship and covered. Our room steward kept our room tidy and took care of us the entire time. My only complaint was the shower curtain- it was at least 6 inches off of the floor causing the water to splatter everywhere. The shower had great water pressure and a shower head that actually sprayed water.

First Holiday Cruise By: najanaja
nice, very clean, all electronics worked perfectly. A/C initially not super cold, but one statement to the room steward and we had a very cold room. Fresh pitcher of ice in the room fridge every day was nice. Our guy was at the top of his game, always came back to a clean room and fresh towels.

Cabin C-753
Jan 2016
As stated, there were new mattresses - very comfortable. However, one would think during a 13-day dry dock they could have at least dry cleaned the drapes - they were filthy and soiled. Had an outstanding cabin attendant.

Fantastic First Cruise Experience By: anderson.iowa@gmail.com
We were upgraded to a balcony and loved it. The rooms were sufficiently big and the service was outstanding. We enjoyed the view from the balcony on the 12th deck.

5 Star Emerald Pricess By: LAsailorgirl08
Mid forward location on Lido was a bit rocky but we don't mind the motion and seas were heavy! Erika was our wonderful stewardess, kept our cabin tidy and ice bucket filled. Wonderful vies from so high up, would stay again. One negative, it's time for new mattresses, hopefully next refurb will be after her time in Houston.

OK, but By: 71Bruin
Typical Balcony Room. However, very good closet space but the room itself felt small, with only a chair, no couch. Bathroom was adequate and very typical. Their design cuts off the room with the back wall of the closet and no view to the door from the bed chamber.

Balcony Cabin was located on Deck-14 in the AFT Section of the ship and was a 5 minute walk to the Horizon Buffet on Deck-15. Lots of Rattling noise inside the cabin itself and was rocking/swaying at night from left to right. Shower area was rather small but adequate. Lots of closets and sitting area in the Balcony itself was quite large.

Cabin C619
Oct 2012
On the Emerald Princess the Balcony cabins on the "C" Caribe deck are larger than on the other decks; I don't know why. We had 2 chairs, 2 lounge chairs and a nice table on our balcony. The closets are large and if your suitcase doesn't fit under your bed comfortably you can store it in the closet and it will not be in the way. There are no drawers except 2 small one in each of 2 night tables but there are plenty of shelves to store clothes. The refrig is large and not loaded with sodas, etc. for sail so you can put what you want in it with no problem. The cabins have flat screen TV's that offer many channels with movies and several channels for children.

Cabin D734
Sep 2012
We had a balcony cabin in the back of the ship and there was plenty of closet space, the bed was comfortble, and our balcony was very large. For us there was enough drawers and the location was very quiet-which is a very important factor for me. There is a desk which we used for the computer and a refridgerator which we used for our soda and water bottles. There was a filled ice bucket at all times. The balcony has two chairs and a table and makes it great to sit outside and either read or just watch the water and scenery.

Cabin c608
Apr 2012
Caribe cabin 608. Great 9x9ft balcony, 5ft covered and 4ft uncovered. Very comfortable bed. Great open closet, resembling a walk-in closet. Good storage space. Very tiny shower in the bathroom, with fabric shower curtain that leaves water all over the floor. Loved the chocolates on the pillows at night!! Loved the mailbox at the door. The room was very quiet and well located to everything above and below.

Cabin A205
Jul 2011
Cabin A205 on Aloha deck was great. Nice roomy balcony. The queen bed was comfortable, more than enough room for 2 people. very quiet being that far forward and up high. Convenient to stairs and elevators. Roomy bathroom, the enclosed shower was a bit tight, but the bathroom was fine. TV/info was fine, nice desk and comfortable side chair. The closet and storage area was roomy and good sized. Great cabin, would book it again. Was in easy view of Starboard bridge wing and got to watch the capt get us in and out of some ports. A/C worked fine. Cabin Steward was Fantastic.

Cabin a310
Jul 2011
Emerald Princess: A310. Very well laid out. Plenty of space for two of us to hang clothes, put clothes in drawers, and store our suitcases out of the way. Bathroom had plenty of space for our stuff. Balcony was smaller than some of my fellow travelers had previously (no lounge chairs would fit, but two sitting chairs and a table, which was fine for us). We did not experience hallway noise or any other issues of noise. Because we were on the A-deck, we had great views from our balcony - I had no problems with our room.

Cabin C509
Jun 2011
C509 Caribe deck 10 Standard BA cabin with larger balcony. Balcony furniture includes one round table, two fixed chairs and two reclinable chairs. You could use the fixed chairs as foot stools. Balcony is half private/not overlooked and half overlooked by cabin balconies above. We noted that the balconies for the mini suite cabins below us were not as big as ours and were totally overlooked. Shower room is compact but adequate. Noted pull-out washing line in shower area for hanging any small clothing items you may wish to wash. Shelf below sink area is useful extra storage space. Plenty of hanging space and hangers for clothes.Plenty of room to store suitcases. Tall narrow cupboard in the same area incorporates a safe for valuables, cash passports etc. Adequate hair dryer available in main cabin area. Bed and pillows very comfortable.Bucket style chair and small table available in main cabin area. Plenty of storage cupboards in main cabin area. Fridge includes items for purchase but is also useful for chilling your own wine and water. Location of C509 was good for any ship movement as it was fairly central and was very quiet. Noted that when passing cabins around number 611 on the same deck there was noise from above as they were below the funnel area.

Cabin C630
Feb 2011
C630 - Large Balcony which we enjoyed. Cabin size was the same as regular balcony cabins as far as we could see. Cabin was comfortable. The bed was hard, but steward helped correct with an extra pad. Beds on Princess have always been very comfortable before this cruise. Shower - missed the European shower head as the one in the shower was not movable. Small shower, but used to that. Plenty of closet space and drawers. No noise, but fairly close to rear elevator.

Cabin C428
Dec 2010
Good location - right off the elevators but we never heard them or the people using them. Having a Caribe deck balcony (extra large) was a nice surprise. Even though the bathroom at first appeared small, there was plenty of storage room and it served its purpose well. The "tiny shower" people talk about was small but not too small. The shower curtain could have been an inch longer - water would drain onto the bathroom floor when the curtain was opened and now and then if it was hit during the rinse down. Plenty of storage space in the cabin. Stored all of our luggage under the bed which left plenty of room in the large closet area. We asked for more hangers (got about 20 more) and there was still room on the bar for more.
