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.
Loved having a balcony. Room was small but we had plenty of places for our things. Take something to hang on the towel rack for your personal items as there is not much room to store things. We took extra hangers. They do supply you with some but we hung most of our clothes. Read entire member review >>
Very clean and comfortable temperature. I use a CPAT machine for sleeping and they had a gallon jug of distilled water that I had requested on my personal profile waiting for me when we unpacked. Read entire member review >>
The bathroom is surprisingly spacious. There were 3 decent-sized shelves above the sink area to store toiletries and a big shelf below the sink. The shower is pretty tiny though, and there isn't much shelf space, so you'd be smart to go to www.favorsbyserendipity.com and buy their cruise accessories to help with this problem.
Upgrade to a balcony cabin if it's at all possible in your budget. Our balcony was great, and included two deck chairs and a small table. It was very nice to be able to go outside.
The room itself included a queen-sized bed. The linens were of a very high thread count and were very comfortable. The duvet was fairly thin. You may wish to ask for more blankets. There were 2 night stands with lamps, a good-sized desk with chair, an occasional chair, and "entertainment area" including a small built-in refrigerator and small flat-screen TV. The dressing area includes a 4' wide closet with plenty of hangers, and an 18" wide by 7' tall shelf unit that includes a small safe. Read entire member review >>
Our balcony cabin was gorgeous! Our steward, Cesar, was fabulous.
The only thing was that being on the Aloha deck midship, there was a pool deck I think above us and every evening we could hear them dragging the chaise lounges around. We could also hear kids running on deck.
We were on the Land side which I would recommend if possible for Alaska. Read entire member review >>
Smaller than some we have had on other cruise lines. Bathroom was very small and in need of updating. Floor tile was worn & cracked. Vanity was worn. Vacuum toilet malfunctioned three times in two weeks - reset itself once and fixed by technician twice (quick response).
Cabin is below Lido deck entertainment area - frequent night-time noise of equipment being dragged across deck above. Interior walls creak often during night and moderately rough water. Read entire member review >>
Dirty stained carpets. Dirty drapes. Mold in shower, dirty looking and bad condition floor in bathroom. Balcony had corner molding cracked and some substance which looked like termite substance Read entire member review >>
B339 Standard balcony room. Smaller wardrobe hanging space than Ruby or Emerald. On our sailing, prone to knocking, banging and eventually loud clanging noises due to a dislodged pipe. Shower had more shoulder space than Ruby or Emerald as it is set in the corner. Nowhere near any launderettes or creaky stairwells. If they sort out the plumbing the the cabin location is fine. The balcony does not have any matting to raise you up from any rainwater. This can be slippy. This applies to all staterooms. Read entire member review >>
We liked this cabin. Quiet and close to exit by the aft pool. We never heard anything from the Lido deck.
The beds could be more comfortably. We did sometimes get some vibration while at higher speeds. And the balcony is covered so we could sit on it while it was raining, though we never got any sun on it. Read entire member review >>
C-222 No problems. On the port side so those travelling west enjoy the day sun. Those travelling north enjoy sunsets. Balconies on the top section are staggered in wedding cake fashion. Those in cabins above can look directly down onto your balconey. Read entire member review >>
Great balcony, quiet room bathroom bigger than some other Princess ships.
Did not like mini bar as drinks were missing and it was my responsibility. If you want drinks order them Read entire member review >>
Cabin B433 although sold as a BC category was terrible. It was designed for a room with children with bunk beds that drop from the ceiling. No night stands or night or night stand lamps. Closet area is about 4.5 feet long. There are 5 rooms adjacent to the elevators on both side of the ship that are the same. Princess sells them for full BC Category Price but they are far below the level of their normal BC Category Rooms. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was a good size (I had room to do my daily exercises)with a balcony however it was not very clean, shower had black mould, hair dryer was so dirty I didn't want to touch it I was glad I brought my exercise mat because I would not have laid on the floor to do my exercises without the mat. Desk had a sticky dirt all around the edges. Water dripped off the balcony above us so had to make sure it didn't land in our coffee. Read entire member review >>
