What a cruise!! By: ETdreamer
Very quiet and pleasant area; plenty of storage space. The balcony was spacious and gave us wonderful views. Our steward, Albert, was efficient and unobtrusive.

The cabin was very good. Balcony was a little rusty and old looking but it was fine. Shower was small and I hate those small showers with the curtain. The curtain wasn't long enough so the water just leaked out into the bathroom itself. The toilet stopped working on one day but it was fixed within the day. Apparently it was an issue on the whole deck we were on. Lucky we had family on another deck so we just used their toilet until ours was fixed.

Cabin C705

My Cabin was C705. I could hear the lift buzzer from the aft passageway in my room. The cabin was clean and comfortable and had no faults. The balcony is twice the length of all other balconies and has shade as well as an area that is overlooked and can overlook the mini suites on "D" deck.

We had drop down bed and cot for passenger 3 and 4. We were cramped of course and expected to be. The weather was cool most days and so were not able to use the balcony. We just used other areas of the ship.

Cabin 641
Dec 2016
As above...very good except for the shower. I am not overly big but do have some mobility problems and found it awkward. Our cabin attendant, Jovito a young fellow who was most charming and pleasant, who gave his all....from the very first moment of meeting he remembered our names and was there when and if needed. In all our travels we have opted for a balcony cabin and never been disappointed. As noted in the beginning the only criticism was the size of the shower recess.

No problems. Tons of storage space. Small bathroom, but expected. Not enough hangers, but only need to ask for more. 1 floor down from pool and buffet. Loved being close, did not find it noisier than any other cabin. Not too close to elevator or laundry room which I think would of been noisier.

Cabin air conditioning was not working well at all, despite four attempts by crew to fix it. It made showering/dressing for dinner very uncomfortable, a hot mess. Others were complaining about their AC too. Commode in bathroom smelled yicky and had to be fixed because it was leaking. We came down with Norovirus when we came home--awful!

Emerald Princess was Fine & Dandy By: 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.

Fabulous Getaway!!! By: mavswin
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.

A Pleasant Surprise! By: Bucky63
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're done with Princess By: 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 By: 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.

The Cruise to ????? By: M&M1981
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 By: 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.

Princess Cuts Corners By: piper61
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 A-223
Nov 2010
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.

Another Great Princess Experience By: 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.
