This stateroom has a balcony with patio furniture. It offers two twin beds that make up into a queen-sized bed, a refrigerator, television, closet and bathroom with shower, plus a spacious closet and desk.
Standard mid-ship balcony room. The balcony seemed a bit smaller than on other Princess cruise ships. Surprising since this is the largest Princess cruise chip in the fleet. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was nice, the bed was very comfortable. The only real disappointment was our balcony. There is an overhang above the balcony that messed up a lot of our pictures. Read entire member review >>
It didn't feel as small as I was expecting. We had twin beds and there was space between them. There was plenty of hanging space and coat hangers and drawer space. Our suitcases stored perfectly under the bed. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was at the front of the ship on the starboard side. It might have been a little choppier than mid or aft, but not that bad. I found there was plenty of room in the cabin - enough for two people anyway. It was well layed-out, with lots of closet space and shelving for clothes. The bathroom was a good size and I loved that there was a seat in the shower. Regarding soundproofing, the cabins were pretty good. Unless the people in the cabin beside you played the tv loudly, you couldn't really hear your neighbours. Balcony was fine, however, I've heard it's smaller than some other cruiseships.

Midship accessible cabin. Regular balcony cabins 222 sf including balcony. Our cabin was about 333 sf including balcony. Large handicapped bathroom with turning circle adequate for wheelchair or small scooter. Switches for lights and climate control good height for seated or standing passengers. Large closets, plenty o shelves and drawers. Suitcases, even our 30" behemoths fit under each bed. Beds are cot size, not twin (30x72 vs 39x72), but together do equal a standard queen in width if not length. You will need extension cords for CPAP, available from front desk. Distilled water available from room steward, we requested this prior to our cruise, a good idea. Good central location but no passenger stairs mid ship. Allow extra time for elevators as most will come by fully packed. Large desk space, small mini fridge and room safe, deep enough to hold 15" laptop. Read entire member review >>
Room was okay, about what we expected. Bed was very comfortable. Flat screen TV was nice but nothing to watch unless you like cricket. Bathroom was okay. Balcony was smallest of any we have had.We were forward on the Emerald deck. Read entire member review >>
A standard balcony cabin was much smaller than in the past and there were many changes that were not pleasant. The bath linens were worse than a budget rate hotel. I use better towels when I wash my dogs – seriously. And you would think they would get a clue from the sister line, Carnival, and provide comfortable beds for the passengers, but no, same old rock hard mattresses. The acoustics were substandard as well. We had continuous noise in our original cabin M501. It was so bad you could hear the football games from the big screen on deck even with the balcony door closed. Finally on the second leg of the trip we were moved to cabin B238, which was far better but we could still hear the TV in the next cabin and anytime a door opened or closed you could hear that as well. Kudos to Monica with the Hotel staff for staying on top of this. Read entire member review >>
Nice but small. Pretty much standard cruise ship fare. Enough room for two...balcony small but in no way as tiny as everyone makes it out to be. Plenty of closet space...could use more drawer space. Bathroom OK...pretty much standard again. TV in room very nice...lots of on demand stuff...live TV somewhat lackingSteward service was perfect...no problems...everything as we like it.

Very small cabin and tiny balcony. The shower stall was slightly larger than other Princess ships of the same cabin category. Thin walls, can hear conversations in adjacent cabins. Read entire member review >>
