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.
As previously noted, it appeared the cabin was slightly smaller, although it could have been due to the fact of the larger TV mounted at foot of bed on the wall. Balcony was definitely smaller. Bathroom layout is different to provide a larger shower area. Carpet definitely needed to be cleaned, but was told if it was spot cleaned, the chemicals used would permeate the cabin for several days. We had problems with our toilet twice, but was fixed quickly. Cabin is okay for two people. We'll definitely get mini suite the next cruise. Read entire member review >>
I am need of wheelchair accessible cabin to accommodate my electric scooter and for the convenience of the walk in shower . The cabin is larger than the standard cabin and it works well for me. The cabin stewards are always ready to do or get whatever you might need . We book far in advance to make sure we get the cabin we want with a veranda. The cost is slightly more but well worth it.

The towels in the cabin seem to have been retrieved from the discards of a third class hotel, thin, harsh and I even got one with a big hole. I could not believe my eyes!
We received 2 small bottles of lotion for 2 persons for 14 days.
From that I can surmise that Princess has become very frugal. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was kept tidy by the steward. He was always smiling and easy to work with. We had hoped for a fresher feel to the cabins, after two weeks in dry dock, but they were about the same, nothing new. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was a typical cruise cabin, spacious enough. The balcony was nice. Services in the cabin were excellent. We had a very good cabin steward. One thing to note is that the shower was bigger than many cruise cabin showers, and allowed more room that usual to move around. Read entire member review >>
Very small. The duvet is too heavy and short when tucked in. We pulled it out at night in order to have it long enough. We asked for a top sheet the first day which was provided that night. Read entire member review >>
The cabin is on the small side, but I didn't find the balcony to be terribly tiny like some other reviews. The bathroom, while not large, is larger than on the Caribbean Princess, and certainly has a larger shower. It was clean, comfortable, and had loads of storage. Read entire member review >>
Did not like the aft location. Because of the lack of stairs and elevator access, you have to walk to the mid ship area to go down to the atrium. I would recommend booking mid ship or forward on the Royal. Read entire member review >>
Not sure if that is the right category! Modern but midships as per review means either a long wait for the lifts or a long walk to a staircase. Headboard is towards the front of the ship, but no longer an issue for us as the TV is on the wall at the foot of the bed.
No UK power socket and no socket on one side of the bed.
Balcony is small, but a glass screen makes viewing OK. Two decks above the lifeboats, so an unobstructed view.
The only external noise was from adjacent passengers where they had three cabins together and linked the balconies. Read entire member review >>
Well kept room by our steward. She was very cordial and pleasant. We had a minor problem with the shower and she had it repaired well before we even mentioned it. The balconies are a bit small but we don't spend much time in our room. Read entire member review >>
Lovely room. VERY small balcony. Nice having a love sofa instead of just a chair. Nice large flat screen tv. Very comfy bedding. Love the improvements to the bathroom--roomy shower, ledge for toiletries & leg shaving :)
Less shelf & drawer space than before.
Funky system for turning on lights in room (must use room card).
Chose this room because it was one of the few that does not lose its privacy to either the "peeping tom" skywalk or the captain's bridge...and does not look down on lifeboats. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was tastefully decorated, immaculate, and while a bit tight, certainly up to our expectations. We don't spend a great deal of time in our cabin when we cruise, but do enjoy having a balcony to have the occasional breakfast on or just watch the world go by from. If I had a complaint, it would be that the table on the balcony could be larger to make meals easier.The location of the cabin was good..we might have preferred one closer to one of the staircases, but this was a quite spot, no excess hallway noise, and none from above or below.

Problems in the CabinI had been on the Royal last year for 30 days and experienced some issues so I was ready to embrace a new and improved ship. This was not quite the experience I had. The toilet in my room (A718) was clogged first thing the morning, and you know how that goes when you are traveling. This caused extreme discomfort to us and I spent the morning calling for help. Just like last year, nobody came to fix the toilet until I called 5 times, not my favorite way to start a cruise. We had to vacate the room and race to use the public bathrooms, then to the front desk to ask for help in person, this being the most effective method of eliciting help on this ship. Good grief, I swear I am not doing anything different on this ship than I do on others so I don't understand what the problem is. Could it be related to the power blackout we had yesterday right after we boarded? Read entire member review >>
The Cabin was fine, the toilet did not work on the first full day of the cruise, this was eventually repaired by the afternoon and I never had any other problems with this cabin. The bed was a bit hard, had to ask for extra toppers (they don't have egg crate style toppers on this ship) and once I got them it was more comfortable. The room was a little worn, there were a few stains on the floors, and the TV intermittently didn't work so well, sometimes it would go dark in the middle of a movie making that experience very frustrating. Finally, the vent top on the side of the cabinet while holds the refrigerator was always falling off and finally I just leaned it against the hole, and because of this I could not use that storage area.

D148; great room no complaints except if you have friends in D147 (that was we could view everything on both sides of the ship) it's a lot of walking because of no cross overs. Also no going out the front of ship on our floor. Laundry was in the 600 section so once again a long walk. Read entire member review >>
