Great size cabin, more than enough storage space. Decent sized bathroom with bath. Balcony double width, described as "obstructed" but really isn't. Window cleaning cage is stored to the side of the balcony, but does not restrict views. Shaded area to one side of balcony was useful for getting out of the very hot sunshine. Cabin steward excellent. Only downside is that it is quite a walk to the lifts Read entire member review >>
The cabin 1578 - A Junior suite. Plenty of space and storage for 2 adults and 2 children, and good sized balcony. A wonderful steward who serviced our room well and during the time periods we requested. He even obtained a 4th chair for the balcony.
I would however note that it is below the Windjammer buffet restaurant, and you hear no noise during service hours. However late at night or the early hours of the morning you will hear trollies being wheeled across the floor. One side of the balcony also has a divider which is only half width due to the shape of the boat. This means you can easily see directly into the neighbouring balcony. We did also have an issue with someone smoking on the balcony a few doors down, but after alerting the steward this ceased. This ship doesn't allow smoking on balconies. Read entire member review >>
This was our first time in a Junior Suite and we will not have anything less on future cruises. The cabin was comfortable and spacious with a walk-in closet and full size bath tub. The balcony was a good size with a table, two chairs and a lounger chair. Read entire member review >>
Absolutely firstclass with a bath tub and a walk-in wardrobe so more than enough space. Large balcony which unfortunately, had a hughe overhang which kept out the sun. Superb Cabin Attendant. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was spacious and bigger than I had imagined it would be. Suite attendant, Maxim, was amazing and had a wonderful personality. Truly wanted us to have a special honeymoon. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was lovely and seemed slightly larger than the Junior Suite we booked on Princess last fall. The hallways were quiet. The walk-in closet was very spacious with lots of hangers and storage. We thoroughly enjoyed the large balcony. I am unsure how typical the bed set-up was, but ours was a mattress on a metal frame. The mattress was not very comfortable. The bottom corners of the bed were rounded off which proved to be a bit of a problem for my 6'6" husband. His feet hung off the bed by 12 inches or more. In addition, our cabin was 100 yards from the nearest stairs/elevator. That's a LONG walk and cruisers with mobility issues should be aware there are no stairs or elevators in the back of the ship. The towels were soft and plentiful. There was oatmeal on our balcony that never got cleaned up. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was an un-obstructive view balcony Jr. Suite on the 10th deck, The bed was large and comfortable with the most wonderful sheets. Soft and cool. There was a tremendous amount of storage space and an abundance of closet room with plenty of hangers. There was a pull out sofa (which we did not use as such) and a nice sized side chair placed by the slider to the balcony. There were a good number of plugs but it never hurts to bring something from home. A coffee pot with cups/sugar/dry creamer as well as a small refrigerator/cooler were there. The bathroom was much bigger than what we have had in a regular balcony cabin with a tub/shower and plenty of hot water. Lots of counter space and good lighting. Such a wonderful change from the usual closet. Read entire member review >>
Great layout. Huge closet and nice separate sitting area. Bathroom is roomy for a ship with a nice sized tub shower combination. Be certain to review the deck plans and see what is directly above your room as the Windjammer was above ours (we were on deck 10) and the sound of carts rolling on the tile floor was evident until very late at night and very early in the morning. Good value for the money and our attendant was exceptional. Read entire member review >>
We booked stateroom 1528, a handicapped room, as we never know when the wife will need to be in a wheelchair. Thankfully the wheelchair function was not needed this time, but the room was very nice, and included a HUGE balcony with teak flooring, and the storage of clothing was very adequate.

1538: Under towel stand at outdoor pool, noisy starting at 5:00 am, nice bath with full tub, large walk-in closet, small TV (not LCD), large balcony shaded by Deck 11 overhang Read entire member review >>
As I previously stated we stayed in the Aft corner, room 1100 which is a junior suite. We loved the room, it was spacious, the balcony is very big, the bathroom is nice, the closet has ample space, and bed was comfortable. The TV is still the old "boob tube" tv which takes up some space. We had ample shelving space to store all of our items. Our room steward Erwin was great and took care of everything we needed.

Cabin was spacious - plenty of storage space...bathroom was large....deck was wonderful - no rooms across from us...only negative was when the Windjammer closed at night there was some noise from tables and chairs being moved around.... Read entire member review >>
Cabin offered lots of space. Walk-in closet and the full bath were great. Cabin is under Windjammer Restaurant and very noisy when carts are being moved in early morning and late evening. Sounded like a thunderstorm each night. Read entire member review >>
The junior suite was perfect for three adults. The bathroom had a full tub with a hand held shower head. The closet was a walk in so that you could change your clothes in the closet if you so desired. The balcony was large enough for three deck chairs and a small table. We were on deck 10 and did not have to go far to the Windjammer, solarium, or the spa. Read entire member review >>
We experienced a lot of noise in this cabin at all hours of the day. Windjammer was directly above us and you would hear chairs being dragged across the floor and carts rolling above. You could hear the people in the cabin next door often. Tap water was brown on several occasions. Read entire member review >>
JS 1100. Huge balcony, lots of room. Walk in closet. Full bath tub. People can look down from the Windjammer and see you if you are by the rail. Second best balcony we have had. Read entire member review >>
We were in a Junior Suite, deck 10 in the rear port side. The cabin is spacious with a walk in closet. The bathroom is standard. The balcony is larger than standard. Our location put us directly below one of the dining areas of the Windjammer and you could hear people dragging the furniture around from time to time. Read entire member review >>
