Fiji Princess Cabins

All cabins, which are on the small side when compared with big ship staterooms but are about average on eco-oriented vessels, are air-conditioned with ocean views, furnished with king, double or twin beds, safe, minibar, TV/DVD, and hair dryer. The six staterooms on the Saloon Deck measure 117 square ft. Sixteen cabins on the Lounge Deck and a dozen cabins on the Bridge Deck average 142 square ft. Four of the Lounge Deck cabins have triple or double and single bed configurations, nice for families.

Our inviting Lounge Deck cabin featured a double bed with a yellow, blue and green striped bedspread, a blue fabric headboard, and a large mirror behind the bed. Walls are paneled in handsome acajou wood, and wood shutters adorn the picture postcard window. We enjoyed the four black and white photos of vintage motor boats and one larger sailboat photo.

Guests are welcomed with a bottle of complimentary Matthew Lang champagne from Australia. The bubbly is set in an ice bucket atop a wood unit with a built-in lamp and mini-fridge stocked with soft drinks ($2.25),water ($3.25 for a 1.5 liter bottle), Fiji Bitter Beer ($4.25) and assorted snacks ($1.75 to $4.40).

DVD's are available free of charge and include an assortment of recent movies as well as children's titles. Passengers are welcome to bring their own movies.

Beside our mini-fridge was a dark blue ottoman and sleeper sofa with pull-out drawers underneath for storage and TV monitor above. Our ample closet featured a hanging area, four shelves, and safe. There were three additional shelves next to the closet, as well as two night tables.

Our well-lit bathroom was equipped with a white sink and shower stall with peach curtain. Though the shower was small, hot water never felt so good as after a day of snorkeling. We found that our bathing suits dried better on the sundeck than on the retractable clothes line.

Bath amenities included shell-shaped soaps in two soap dishes, conditioner, shampoo, and moisturizer. We also made full use of the towel rack and medicine cabinet; a pair of door hooks was provided for our comfy blue cotton kimono-style robes. Daily cabin service was efficient and well-timed to correspond with snorkeling excursions.

The cabins were great, small yet functional, the beds were very comfortable (shame we couldn't take the mattress home with us really!) Air conditioning was great for evening to ensure a great nights sleep. Bathrooms were small yet functional as well, all amenities worked...continue

Cabins are nicely appointed but modest in size. Pack light, as the casual nature of the cruise experience lends itself to this manner of dress. Duffle bags that slide under the bed will help. You won't spend much time in your cabin, so we found the cabins to be only a...continue
