We have no negative comments about the cabin. For a week's cruise it is fine. The balcony gives "escape" space for kicking up one's feet and reading in quiet. We have always had balcony cabins for one-week cruises and had a mini-suite on a 2-week Panama Canal cruise. The extra mini-suite interior room was fine, but not always used. We find that clothes storage space is ample in a balcony (non-suite) cabin for one or two week cruises. We plan our clothing carefully based on climates and combination options, something any thoughtful traveller will do. We carry several cameras and electronics that require outlets for recharging. Princess has ample 110V outlets. Also, climate control in the cabins has always been good. Beds are comfortable. The mini-suites have extra padding over supportive mattresses. Worth the extra cost??? Cabin stewards have always provided excellent service, and get our appreciation beyond the daily add-on charge. I provide a negative rating for departure. It was less than smooth and lacked organization. Our Platinum status should have provided expedited check-in. Not so. Then, there was someone in the check-in line who vomited in view of Princess staff, but was not removed for a health check. Passengers dodged the mess on the floor.
