Staterooms come in six configurations: insides (156 - 166 square feet), outsides (162 - 212 square feet, some are obstructed), balcony cabins (217 - 232 square feet), outside mini-suites (300 square feet, no balcony), mini-suites with balconies (285 - 302 square feet) and balcony suites (470 square feet). Impressively, 83 percent of all outside cabins have private balconies. Twenty cabins are wheelchair accessible.
Our nicely appointed mid-priced oceanview double with balcony was roomier than some motel rooms we've stayed in -- with amenities that included a sizeable mini-refrigerator, a safe, complimentary slippers and robes, a flat-screen TV, a daily delivery of ice, and turn-down service. It also had a spacious closet. And while the shower-only bathroom is tight, it's efficiently designed.
The balcony was a real treat -- and with four adjoining cabins, we were able to unlock the doors that separate the balconies to create one long balcony for oceanview visiting and room-hopping. There also isn't the cascading balcony effect you see on Princess Grand class (and beyond) and because we couldn't see the balconies below us, we were able to maintain a sense of privacy.
Passengers looking for some added space without a suite-like price point should consider a mini-suite. But remember: These are really just jumbo-sized balcony cabins. Save for the extra leg room and a bathtub, they don't come with any additional perks.
Suite passengers get a few extra amenities. Suites are outfitted with two television sets, and passengers can enjoy complimentary laundry and shoe shine, a selection of pillows, daily in-room canapes and high tea, and free Internet access.
Decor -- in all categories -- is simple yet savvy, and features wonderful blues, greens and earth colors. Accents: Why coral, of course!
