Dawn Princess has five types of cabins: insides, outside, balconies, mini-suites and suites. Of the 975 staterooms, 603 have windows and 410 have balconies. Most cabins are decorated in a peachy-orange color with hints of blue (though inside cabins are predominantly blue with beige highlights). All standard cabins come with a small TV (not a flat screen), mini-fridge, telephone, desk/vanity, hairdryer (attached to the wall by the vanity, not in the bathroom) and closet. Nice touches in inside and outside cabins are a shelf behind the bed and individual reading lights. Bathrooms have reasonable storage space and showers with the dreaded clingy shower curtain. They're stocked with bottles of Lotus Spa shampoo, conditioner, lotion and shower gel.

Inside cabins range in size from 138 to 148 square feet. Standard outside cabins with picture windows range from 135 to 155 square feet, while deluxe outside cabins are larger at 173 square feet. Dawn Princess has a wide selection of staterooms with private balconies, nearly 70 percent of all outside cabins. Balcony cabins measure 151 square feet and come with a 31.5-square-foot balcony, which has space for two chairs and a small table. Space inside these cabins may feel tight, particularly if shared with children.

Mini-suites are actually two-room suites with the bedroom and living room separated through an archway. These staterooms feature a split bath with toilet and sink in a separate room from the tub-shower combo (with massaging shower head); a walk-in closet; and TV's in both the bedroom and living area. These cabins come in a wide variety of sizes, from 366 to 538 square feet (including long skinny balconies ranging in size from 66 to 117 square feet).

Six suites are 538 to 695 square feet, including large private verandahs that vary in size from 150 to 204 square feet. The suites feature a sitting room with a pullout couch and dining table, separate bedroom, a large marble bathroom, whirlpool, and walk-in closet.

Nineteen ADA cabins (seven outside, 12 inside) range from 213 to 305 square feet.

Each cabin deck has a self-service laundromat with washers and dryers. The cost is 1 AUD per load in any machine (so 2 AUD to wash and dry one load). Detergent is available in machines for purchase, and each laundry has an iron and ironing board. They're most crowded on sea days or the last day of the cruise, but beware, these machines are tough commercial units and should be used with care on delicate garments.
