Crown Princess offers a limited variety of cabin categories but its 880 balcony cabins (out of 1,532 total cabins) means that plucking up an oceanview room is decidedly affordable. Decor is a little on the mundane side, with light pink, blue, cream and beige dominating the color scheme. In line with the subtle additions, Princess has added a dedicated romance channel, which features many an episode of the "Love Boat" and movies like Sleepless in Seattle, as well as a Leonard Maltin Movie Channel, which shows a combination of new stuff (Benjamin Button, Star Trek) and older classics. Each cabin comes with a little booklet outlining the options.

Each standard cabins (insides on up) is uniquely laid out with a little hallway off the main hallway that leads to an open-door closet and to the bathroom. It's like having a walk-in closet! Cabins include shower-only bathrooms, queen beds that can be split into twins, small sofas (some are sleepers), a desk/vanity area and flat-screen televisions. Further, all come with private safes and (empty) mini-fridges.

Cabins, especially at the lower levels, are a little snug. Insides measure 163 square feet, outsides are 168 square feet, and standard balcony cabins run about 233 square feet, including the verandahs. Those opting for more room should start by looking one of 178 mini-suites, at 323 square feet, which include separate living nooks and full-length couches, along with chairs and extra, remote-operated televisions. Mini-suite bathrooms come with bathtubs, though the ceiling is rather low-set. (At about six feet tall, I had just a couple inches of clearance.) The balconies for the mini-suites on the controversial Dolphin Deck jut out from the ship's superstructure, so they're exposed to the sky and the prying eyes of fellow passengers above. A similarly situated Cruise Critic reader had an interesting solution: She brought a beach umbrella.

Princess has a raft of names for its other suites (Vista, Penthouse, Owners), but they all come in between 468 and 591 square feet. Other suite perks include a separate sitting area, DVD and MP3 player (DVD's are available to borrow), free laundry and dry cleaning, and a more elaborate bathroom. Interestingly, there's no over-the-top, 1,000-plus-square-foot suite onboard.

There are two family suites onboard, which are, in essence, interconnecting cabins that share a living space and large balcony with a table, four chairs and two loungers. Bedroom one has a queen bed and tubbed bathroom within its walls; the second bedroom has two twin beds and a shower-only bathroom. Family Suites measure 607 square feet, which includes the balcony.

Thirty-one cabins are designed for the physically disabled, including 21 balcony, four oceanview and six inside.

   Cabin R404
September 2014

R404 is typical Princess PH suite. Size is standard suite and layout is as pictured in literature. The balcony is not as large as the one we had on the Island in Alaska two years ago, but still adequate. We especially like the way the bath is split-up. The furniture...continue

September 2014

This is officially an obstructed view cabin, but I thought the view was fantastic. There are no lifeboats or other equipment in front of the window; just a platform above and below the window.

September 2014

Our obstructed ocean view cabin was of nice size and well laid out. The picture window was larger than I expected it to be. We had found pictures of the ship's cabins on the internet and thought the obstructed view was okay, but in person we were happy to find the view...continue
