A private balcony is just one of many fabulous features. These categories also include twin beds which make up into a comfortable queen-size bed, a refrigerator and TV, a spacious closet and a bath with shower.
The stateroom was fine with all the amenities you'd expect. However, there was a bit of what looked like mould on the bathroom sink grout which was a bit off-putting. The bedding was old and threadbare and a funny off-white colour. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was quite small but adequate with good wardrobe space and good lighting. Shower very small, don't know how some people manage. US power points, no Australian 240v. The balcony overlooks several balcony decks below and is private. This cabin is quiet and in a good position, towards the middle past the front stairway. Read entire member review >>
Comfortable but definitely worn out. Day and night from our 2002 inaugural maiden voyage on the Golden Princess. A renovation is in order. Black mold in the shower is unacceptable'Once of the desk drawer did not function, sliding mechanism was damaged. TV remote could barely operate the TV. Read entire member review >>
Walking into the cabin, the first thing I realised was the size. There is a lot of well-utilised space! I've never seen so much hanging clothes and storage space on a ship before. Other reviews I'd read criticised the bathroom space for being small. I actually found it to be quite sufficient. Read entire member review >>
Large balcony cabin with large shower. This room is about 150 sq ft bigger than normal balcony cabins because it is designed for wheelchairs. It's the size of a motel room, with lots of storage. We didn't need the wheelchair room, we just got a lucky upgrade. The balcony is also larger. The bed was comfortable with a pillow top mattress. Read entire member review >>

We had a great location with our cabin mid aft. Very quiet hallway, with a great balcony location. We had plenty of space in the room for all our belongings. The bed was wonderful! We slept like babies every night! The pillows were a little wimpy, but we managed. Read entire member review >>
A423 standard balcony, covered, could look down at all the other balconies. Very noisy hallway and you will hear all kinds of chairs being dragged around above you. This noise goes way into the night. do not book this cabin if fingernails on the chalkboard bother you. Mid ship
L234 very close to the front, quiet but can get very rough. Read entire member review >>
Nice balcony although rail was loose. Quiet room but bed was very hard and uncomfortable and bedding smelt stale. Cabin assistant was very good and very helpful. Large area for clothes. Read entire member review >>
Princess has the most poorly designed cabins for space, in my opinion. I have cruised on Holland, Norwegian and Celebrity and all have much better layouts for storage of your clothes, etc. Holland's bathrooms have a full tub. We also had a group of 3 families from the UK with boys next to us who kept their balcony doors open between cabins and the noise was not relaxing so we were eventually moved. I could not sit and enjoy my balcony. Princess was very accommodating; they actually went the extra mile, in my opinion. I just asked them to talk to the families and they said, let's just move you. On my next cruise, I will request to not be placed next to families for that reason. Our cabin location was great and our steward could not have been better. Read entire member review >>
B433 was midship, which is fabulous. Altough this cabin is between the opening for the stairs and the elevators, I was anticipating some noise from that, but I would say it was negligible so NOT an issue.
Balconies on the Baja deck are not directly visible from the Aloha deck (above), but the Caribe and Dophin decks ARE directly below. Good for privacy, but not if you wanted to look over the side into the water - that could ONLY be from the Dolphin deck. Read entire member review >>
Being the very last balcony stateroom on the starboard side of Caribe Deck, I was surprised with the sea motion caused by the frequently high winds during our cruise; the motion was side-to-side, like a airliner "fish-tailing." The vertical "pitch" was not noticeable, nor was there much "roll" - even though we were on Deck 10; just this "side-to-side" motion. Strange!
Being on the Caribe Deck, our balcony was DOUBLE sized, being above the Dolphin Deck 9 or Mini-suites. Unfortunately, the strong winds prevented much of our use of the balcony during our days at sea.
Otherwise, there is plenty of closet space, plenty of clothes hangers, plenty of drawer and shelf space. The bath tubs in the mini-suites are very nice, and their absence in regular balcony staterooms was noted. Read entire member review >>
Nice closet with big open space for hanging clothes. HUGE balcony. Small bathroom with tiny shower. Room was nice and quiet. A little more movement felt being up front of the ship, but you don't hear the engine noise from the rear. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was wheelchair accessible and very large. We were told that it had the pull down rods in the closets prior to sailing but that was not the case. Still there was ample storage and the bathroom was large but a small bench is difficult for a person in a w/c to use. Would have preferred a tub option (much safer) The drawers were always loose and falling out but I worked around them.I was disappointed that the balcony was small and covered. This would have bothered us more had the weather been better.Room convenient to elevators. Read entire member review >>
C202: Oversized balcony, though not very private (terraced) and had smokers nearby. The location at the front made it a bit choppy, and difficult to sleep at first. The cabin was extremely quiet. There were stains on the carpet. Nice, flat screen TV and good lighting. Plenty of storage space. Read entire member review >>
Perfectly located by the aft elevators & the nice, roomy balcony that we had heard about! There was plenty of storage between the ample closet and drawer space in the closet, desk and night tables. The bathroom was a little small, but sufficient. I do wish the shower was a little roomier. Read entire member review >>
This cabin, as all on the Caribe Deck, has a very large balcony. 2 deck charis, one table and 2 recliners with room to spare. But where they give you extra space on the balcony they take up in the interior and bathroom. The shower is so small you can barely turn around. Read entire member review >>
