Cabin R501
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.

Cabin 608
Shocking... worst room I have had on a cruise ship. Small, unclean, smelt of diesel fumes during the cruise.

Cabin D442
Cabin always clean and Cabin Stewart very cordial. Balcony partition was open, but blocked door to cabin. Needs redesigned.

Cabin C111
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.

Cabin A602
Odd layout made the cabin seem smaller than it was. Tiny balcony and bathroom. Great location, close to aft elevators and stairs.

Cabin B435
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.

Cabin C602
The cabin was a bit small but very efficient. However, even with out drawers, th ecloset and hanging space worked well. Our cabin Steward, Maria, was superb!!!!

Cabin E521

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.

Cabin M501
Less than Sweet Fountain

So noisy we had to continually escalate to be moved - do not book this cabin unless you sleep like the dead.

Cabin M501

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.

Cabin M236

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 TV somewhat lacking
Steward service was problems...everything as we like it.

Nice though a bit small for a balcony cabin

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.
