Balcony cabin on Marina deck midship - only issue is there are no stairs, just elevators just outside our door. I believe this will be fixed in the near future.

Cabin D625
Cabin was fine. Very little noise. Good location right across from laundry. The lifeboats were right below us but didn't really detract from views

Midship worked well and we could easily hear the ships horn play the Love Boat theme every time we left port.

It was nice having a balcony as the weather was made to make use of the balcony.We had our breakfast most days on the balcony served through room service. The sad part was that the cabin was not vacuumed nor the balcony cleaned regularly. The towels were not not fluffy nor were they full size towels. We travelled for two weeks before the cruise staying at different hotels this was the worst in the towels we used. Had to tell the cabin attendant to clean the balcony as a few nail clippings remained there for over 2 days till asked to be swept.

Our cabin was very nice & comfortable. Once we unpacked & put away all luggage we enjoyed the space whenever we were in our stateroom.

Cabin C218
Balcony was about a foot and a half shorter than we have had on previous cruises but still ok to sit out on. No complaints on the room.

Cabin A505
not quite as big as we thought it would be but it was very nice. WONDERFUL bed and pillows. In fact - would love to get some of those pillows - they were fabulous. Smaller balcony but we could sit outside with no issue

Cabin A534
Stateroom A534 Mid Aft: Three decks down from lido and about 7 decks above promenade. It was about mid-way between the middle elevator banks and the aft ones which was good but you do walk a bit more due in part strategically due to no mid staircase as mentioned many time (flaw on this ship for sure I agree). That said we always got where we were needing to go. The room is nice basic, was quite most of time but I found to last few days of the cruise I could hear more rattling & vibrations from the ship. Not sure why as the first 5-6 days wasn’t as noticeable and think maybe due to lower fuel load/weight? The balcony is small but worked just fine for us and I use the balcony a lot. However getting 3 on there would be standing room only. I found the washroom smaller than I recall on the ruby/Crown & often would have open the door to dry off. We had excellent room steward Maynard. All soaps excellent lines on bed excellent and room was clean. I know some rooms have a couch in them and wish this was the standard to all rooms.

Cabin 601
see my notes above - the cabins on this huge ship are smaller than the ones on the Ocean Princess - a ship for about 670 passengers - go figure.

Cabin R529
Cabin was cramped and balcony was small. Closet and shelf space pretty good. Bathroom was tiny with poor shelf space and shower that was too small. Fairly quiet. Very good location.

I've been on Royal Princess before as well as five other Princess ships and all cabins are very much the same, spacious, comfortable and adequate.

Wonderful cabin. Plenty of room for using a wheelchair. Bathroom very accessible. Balcony easy to navigate in wheelchair. Location near the elevator, but not so close to have noise.

Cabin A530
Cabin was too small, we kept bumping into each other. Could have built less cabins and made them larger even a couple of square feet would have helped.

Cabin C737
Fabulous! badger1829
Great aft cabin! Quiet, well layed out with very comfortabled bed. The flat screen TV was fabulous! The bathroom is larger than usual as is the shower. The balcony is a bit small for the Caribe decks but was perfect for relaxing.

Royal time.....mostly traveldog97
Our balcony stateroom was mostly like the balcony staterooms we had on the other ships. There is not a lot of space and I noticed that a set of drawers has been removed. The bath has a much improved design but it is still a small bathroom. The bed was too firm for my wife but we asked for a mattress topper and they brought one to us and that worked well for my wife. I understand that the entire fleet is converting to pillow-top beds. If you need more space you have to get a larger stateroom and pay for it. We don't spend much time in our stateroom except to shower and sleep so the lack of space wasn't a big deal for us.

Cabin D609

This was a very good cabin with a great cabin steward. It is a short walk to the aft elevator and longer walk to the middle elevator. We did not notice the ship was even moving. The cabin was clean. Looking down from the balcony you do see the tender boats . I think if you were on the deck below this cabin you would have a partial obstructed view . We liked this cabin very much.

Cabin D523
The cabin was very adequate for us, a couple. We weren't in it all the time and we did enjoy having the balcony. The balcony is smaller than on other ships but was fine for us. We were right above the tenders/lifeboats so could not see straight down to the water, but did have an excellent view straight ahead. We liked having a slightly bigger shower stall with the small ledge that we hadn't had on the Island Princess or Crown Princess.

Cabin a 618
Good but not that Great 12dirtyturtle
Get a cabin forward of aft as there are stairs and elevators there. There are self serve laundromat Aft on most decks.

They seem to get smaller and smaller, although it's nice having a shower curtain instead of the sliding door like reminds me of something out of Woody Allen's movie Sleeper. The balcony barely fit two straight chairs and a small table. Dining on the balcony? Hah!

Cabin M501

Rooms were nice and clean. Bathroom were a little bit smaller than other ships.

The rooms were poorly soundproofed, we heard the next door's couple talk very clearly, the TV and some morning there alarm. They were a loud noice (like a huge fan pushing air into our room) coming from the ventilation when we openned to balcony door.

Cabin R-236

A little smaller than the cabins we have had on other ships but, ample room for comfort. There was plenty of storage for toiletries in the bathroom. The closet and drawer space was sufficient to allow us to empty our suitcases and store them in the closet with our hanging clothes. The balcony was small but private and accommodated two chairs and a table with enough room for two people to sit comfortably. The (queen) bed and pillows were exceptional. The room was in good repair and always clean.

Cabin C532

Nice and quiet location. We could see the tenders below our balcony, but it didn't block our view of the wide open sea.

Cabin D528
Cabin D306

Smaller than the balcony cabins on the previous Princess ships we've sailed on, especially the balcony itself. The closet and drawers are smaller as well. If you want space, book a higher class of cabin. We won't book this class again.

Not that Royal Collingwood2011

The cabin was nice, the only issues were that sometimes with the balcony door open a slight crack in the door frame made a whistling noise. Robe doors would swing open.

Cabin D224

Quiet room in a great location mid forward near staircase. An easy place to navigate throughout the ship from. If you are doing a lot of shore excursions, just a quick and short flight down the stairs to the Princess Theatre where many shore excursions meet.

A long walk from the laundry room if you plan on doing laundry.

A very good cabin with quality finish and comfortable bedding. The TV entertainment system sometimes falters put its fixed quickly.

Cabin A701

A701. Double balcony cabin set up with a queen size bed. Near elevators. Good size. Clean and quiet. Shower was larger than previously experienced with good sized wall mounted shower gel and shampoo dispensers. Adequate storage facility. Great wall mounted TV with lots of choice.

Cabin E222

Comfortable, balcony on the small side.
Lots of hanging space and hangers, not that much drawer space.
Don't think the extra space of the deluxe balcony is worth having, will probably go for standard balcony or mini-suite next time.
Shower a bit bigger than on other Princess ships, which is good, also corner shelves bigger.
Positioning of toilet roll dispenser seems badly thought out to me.
TV very good, when they get over teething troubles with the loading time for on-demand programmes.

Cabin M434

M434 Balcony Cabin Deck 15. Nice room but on the small side, open wardrobe, shelved cupboard with safe (easy to use), decent sized shower, lovely smelling toiletries and nice large square basin. Very small balcony area. Although close to the lifts, there was no noise at all.
