Cabin A117
Room was sufficient; but bathroom is very tiny; and hard to maneuver around.

Cabin C206
Very clean and adequate space, with plenty of hanging room. Standard bathroom worked well. Very comfortable bed. The door to the balcony needed a bit of force to open sometimes and might be beyond more elderly people. Soundproofing still amazes me. The only noise you can really hear from elsewhere is the occasional cabin door. Didn't hear any noise from either side or above. The position of the cabin is good - about halfway between the front of the ship and the forward lifts, meaning not too people come past early or late, but it's not too far to walk from/to. It did seem to be at the exact point of the hull at which the waves broke directly below, making even calm seas sound quite noisy, but we quite like that particular sound, once we realised it wasn't the sound of wind and rain! The aircon/temperature control was on all the time we were in the cabin and was completely silent. I'd be happy to book a cabin in this position again.

Cabin R705
Cabins are a little smaller. The balconies are a real disappointment as they are at least a foot or more narrower than other Princess boats! Plus side are showers as they are a bit larger.

Cabin A629
It was fine. People have said things about how small the balconies are. Didn't bother us. They were fine. Lots of storage place. Lighting way better than on other cruises we've taken. I thought the beds were great. Fluffy pillows. Towels old.

Cabin E732
Fairly spacious, not much storage (drawers, etc), shelves in the closet. Old reruns of Love Boat, a few newer tv shows if you happened to get it at the right time. We were at the aft of the ship. It was fun to look out the back and see the port from that angle.

Cabin E706
No complaints about the cabin. Our steward was not the best we have ever had but otherwise we were happy. It is worth noting that the cabins in this area are above the side thrusters and these can be noisy when docking and sometimes we docked very early inthe morning. So, not a cabin for light sleepers!

Cabin B310

The stateroom room and balcony are small but for our needs, it was fine. Bathroom is a bit larger, the closet is larger, and the cabinets are less and smaller. Also note that on other ships, the main hallway carpet on the port side is normally a different color than on the starboard side to help passengers know what side of the ship their room is located. Not the case on Royal Princess. You have to look at the sign near the elevator to see if you are on the even room number side or the odd number side. So it may take a little time to get use to finding what side of the ship your room is when you get off the elevator.

Cabin E221

Location on starboard very good for sightseeing (e.g. the ship's entrance in Venice, allowing to admire San Marco sq.) Quiet enough. Close to the mid-ship lifts, although these elevators were very crowded.
Not very large, despite how it has been advertised. Still, a sufficient and well organized space for luggage and personal belongings.
The balcony a bit too small, unusable, except to stand and look at the sea.
In the bathroom, the location of toilet paper not handy at all!

Cabin E334

Ours was a DW grade which means obstructed view. We look at the top of the life raft.
Room and Balcony seemed on the small side. Chairs on the balcony had reclining backs which made up for the space. Hanging space was great, but no draws in the cabin. There is a cupboard by the hanging space which contains 6 small shelves and a safe. Should be enough room and longer cruises.
The 37" flat screan is fantastic. It has several channels with free movies. Only problem on this sailing it did not have a passenger menue for tours, booking tours of charges made to your stateroom. Hopefully this will be recitified.
