Emerald Princess was Fine & Dandy houstoncruisers2001

We had a balcony cabin. I thought the balcony was rather small. The cabin was set up well, with a table and chair instead of a little couch. The storage area of HUGE. Biggest closet we've had on a ship. The bathroom was a cruise ship bathroom. Our room guy, Rocard did a good job. We like our cabin cold and it was cold. No cabin complaints.

Great room with plenty of storage. We over packed...a LOT, but suit cases fit under the bed. Cabin steward was wonderful. Really enjoyed the room service in the mornings for coffee on the balcony.

We were in a balcony cabin on the Baha (11th) deck. The cabin was faily spacious and laid out to our liking. There was plenty of storage space. The bathroom and shower were a bit cramped, however. The balcony was roomy and well-appointed with two chairs and a small table. The cabin and balcony were clean and well-maintained. The only material deficiency I noticed was the inability of the TV remote controller to turn the TV on or off. This was reported to maintenance by our cabin steward but was never rectified during our cruise. The location of the cabin was far aft, starboard side of the vessel. It was convenient to dining but a very long way from the theater and fitness center. The room was quiet but susceptible to ship movements.

We opted for cabin assignment at check in and were assigned a handicap room which was more spacious than standard.

Nice cabin; plenty of storage space. Showers were very small though and the beds were extremely hard.

The cabin was nice! It was considered mid-ship but really I think it was aft.

Happy Aussie Cruisers Miss Penguin
Great Cabin, Great Room Steward (Jim), Pillows and bed need replacing. Good Closet space, a bit too close to the bathroom door.

We're done with Princess Mahina Linaka
We've been on 2 Princess ships: Star and Empress. The best feature of these ships are the closets! Because they are open (they have no doors or dividers) it is possible to place any number and size of suitcases in them. Great!!

Plenty of Room Southwoods
Our balcony stateroom was the last AFT Starboard side, where we had an extra large balcony. It would hold a lounger and an extra chair, but we still only had two chairs and a tiny table which doubled as a ottoman most of the time out on our balcony! Princess's open closet alcoves off the entrance hallway are always appreciated. The bathroom, in regular balcony rooms is, contrarily, small. A one person bathroom. This room has room for only chairs. One at the desk and one other in front of the balcony door. Amble storage space, though. No make-up mirror, and the lighting was just not good for putting on detail work for aging eyes. However, the hairdryer is affixed to the wall and was more effective than other ship lines we have experienced.

B751 is a stern cabin and has an unusual large metal support on the balcony effectively dividing the balcony into a front 1/3 and back 2/3. It worked for us although some may be put off by the support partially blocking the view from inside the cabin.

Wonderful Trip AgouraTraveler
Baja 607 was spacious, with a comfortable bed, 2 nightstands, chair and desk with U.S. style electrical outlet, tv stand with refrigerator and another outlet, small table, large open closet, shelves with safe, nice-sized balcony, bathroom with outlet for 2-prong U.S. plug. Note: European plug used in Copenhagen hotel didn't fit ship's outlets. Mirrors on wall behind bed, over desk, behind tv, and by the door made room brighter and seem larger. We could hear voices from adjoining rooms but not loud enough to understand conversations. Eucalyptus scented bath products. Plenty of of hot water in shower. Didn't like slight salty taste of faucet water when brushing teeth. Convenient extra light switches on wall behind bed. A/C control worked fine. Didn't like oil smell on balcony(from smokestack?) when entering or leaving ports.

Terrible beds!

Attention needs to be paid to the bedding. The mattresses are hard, sagging in the middle. Request an egg crate topper, but there are not enough for everyone. Other passengers told of covering the bed with pillows and blankets to build up the mattress. The closet is large; may need extra hangars. The drawers are difficult to open.

We booked 10 adjoining rooms together on the Baja Deck, where the balconies all could open up to each other's - an added PLUS for our group, we loved it, our own Meet and Greet area!

Cabin: Cabins were satisfactory: You give some and you take some and Princess gave extra closet space while taking bathroom and shower space. The shower was so small that at six feet tall I almost had to shower half of my body at a time. To bend over and wash my feet and legs while in the shower I had to stick the upper part of my body out of the shower which caused my face to almost go into the toliet bowl. The balcony was larger than our last cruise ship but the chairs did not reclin which was a real disappointment for me since I spend a lot of time on the balcony.

Very satisfied with the cabin, balcony, and location. I particularly liked having adjoining balconies for our children.

B607-nice size room with balcony but located right across from galley kitchen. Crew talked loudly and crashed dishes in the mornings.

Another Great Princess Experience Pleased with Princess
Our cabin at the aft end of the Aloha deck was accomodating and very quiet. It was adequately spacious with all the amenities. Our cabin steward kept ice in the refrigerator and there were always clean towels for bathing and for the pools. The only negative comment was with the sink water. It was either hot or warm, but not cold, which made simple things like brushing your teeth a little odd! The balcony was great for viewing and picture taking.
