Cabin L226
Sep 2016
Our cabin was not quite as big as cabins we have had recently of a similar grade on newer Celebrity and Royal Caribbean ships, but it was not cramped (apart from the shower) and had a vast amount of hanging space. There were two chairs, one an easy chair and the other a desk chair. There were lots of mirrors, but no triple mirror. Toiletries were basic but adequate. Bath towels were on the small side but did the job. The bed was very comfortable.We found three accessible electrical sockets, all flat-pin US 110V outlets, but two of them were too close together to be used simultaneously with most adapters. The balcony was modest in size but adequate, with two reclining chairs and a small table. We like being on the Lido deck on cruise ships because we can amble out of our cabin at breakfast time and along the covered but partly open deck to the buffet restaurant rather than negotiate long corridors and stairways or lifts. But as another reviewer has said, look hard at the deck plans to see what is above and below the cabin you have chosen. We deliberately chose the port side under the massage room rather than the starboard side under the gym, and we heard very little noise from above. We were also glad that we had chosen a cabin well forward on this ship as the stern areas are prone to a jiggling movement that we find uncomfortable. The cabin was also far enough forward that it did not have much corridor activity which might have been a slight issue for cabins aft of the forward stairs and lifts (L301-312).

Nothing special, clean and comfortable. Enjoyed balcony access with sliding door to outside. Shower small and water usually spilled out into floor. Reasonably comfortable beds, wish there were a sheet and blanket as duvets get hot and if thrown off, you then get cold!

Nice balcony cabin. A bit towards the rear, but a great location because close to the back set of elevators. Quiet.

Very tired, cleanliness average only. No housecoats without at least four requests and then if you wish to have it changed you have to ask four times again, not good enough. Verandas never cleaned at all.

Nice size cabin and bathroom. I really enjoyed the balcony. It was so cool to wake up and look outside each day while the ship was docking.

New Years Eve Cruise By: #1cruisecoach
Cabin was small and rather old. But...you are hardly ever in it so it does not matter. They need to remodel the bathroom.....shower curtains are horrible.

You can do better, Princess By: txgalcruiser
Cozy cabin with a great view and a wonderful cabin steward, Yeniz. The bed was hard and the A/C never got the cabin really cold, but it was OK.

Emerald Princess Review 2013 By: travel bug 2013
Overall a very comfortable accommodation with a decent size balcony. Since the cabin was located on the same floor as the bridge and toward the bow of the ship, the bridge actually blocked our view at times. The closet area was adequate, although a few more hangers would have been helpful. The bathroom was typical of any cruise ship with a small shower with a curtain that just met the frame of the shower area on the floor. If you were not careful, you would knock the shower curtain out of the base and soak the bathroom floor. The sink had adequate room for toiletries and there were 3 shelves at the side of the sink area for items. The cabin had electrical outlets for both 110 and 220 current, so an adaptor was not needed. There was a bar fridge in the cabinet under the bar area that came in handy. Your ice bucket was refreshed twice and day, and was kept in the fridge. On the wall above the bar was a flat screen TV that lacked stations for US news. Only European sports were covered through BBC.

Happy As Always. By: crazygal65
Cabin was a standard with balcony. We found our balcony smaller than the one we had on the Star Princess. We don't know if that was because we were on the 14th floor this time instead of lower down. It was nice to be near the elevators and it wasn't noisy at all.
