Deluxe Balcony Cabins

10 Reviews
A larger version of a balcony stateroom includes all the same amenities, plus a comfortable sofa bed to relax and rejuvenate. This stateroom also offers some of the same amenities found in a mini-suite stateroom, including upgraded bathroom amenities, waffle bathrobe, terry cloth towels, and an upgraded duvet insert.

Deluxe Balcony (DB)
The deluxe balcony cabin (class DB, Dolphin Deck 9) was bigger than we'd been led to expect, and bigger than most outside view cabins that we've had on other ships. No problem for two people. Our cabin steward "Freddie" was great; one of the best stewards we've ever had. He made an effort to introduce himself within a few minutes of us entering the cabin, and he keep our cabin as neat as a pin the entire time we were there. We asked for terry cloth bathrobes and he had them for us the first night. There was a surprising amount of drawer space and a huge closet with more than enough supplied hangers for two on a 10-day trip. Plaudits to Princess for the storage space! The bathroom was large enough, don't care for the stick-to-you plastic shower curtains but at least they were clean and somewhat hygienic appearing. The supplied shower gel and shampoo/conditioner were of good quality. The TV channels were marginally OK, but OTOH we don't go on a cruise to watch TV. Having said that, we would like to have two additional TV channels available, something like CNN for general news and the Weather Channel for weather. There really isn't much need to provide both MSNBC and CNBC, one financial new channel would be enough.

I found it very comfortable, but with just me in there, it wasn't crowded. With a second person it might have been. I used all the storage space, and the whole (very generously sized) closet. The bathroom is small, but there was space for all my "stuff". Not a fan of the shower setup--shower doors would be much better. The balcony is small, but there was room enough to stand out there and view the port, or watch the sea. The thermostat didn't seem to do anything to change the temperature. I picked the same cabin for my next cruise on the Royal.

Disappointing ibcasper
The cabin was larger than average with the deluxe category.

Cabin drawer, hanging and shelf space superb....bathroom awful. Not sure why they would still have curtains not a door for a shower. As many have said, balcony or two can sit straight up (but not if one is overweight!!!)....and forget eating on balcony...not sure how one would be able to.

As mentioned in review the cabin is same size as "regular" cabin on the Ruby and balcony was smaller. Good location on Dolphin deck and generally quiet just forward of front staircase. Thought walls a little thin as could hear TV next door some evenings.

Wonderful cruise cubfan0725

deluxe balcony room....adequate balcony size. Bathroom shower was actually larger than expected with a ledge in it

This deck is right in the middle of the ship. 4 decks up to the Lido buffet and 4 decks down to the Atruim. Unless you need to use the elevators, this room is not worthy of the delux rating or price. Go aft or forward and save money if you plan on using the stairs a lot.

This cabin was listed as a deluxe cabin. It was bigger than a regular balcony cabin, but not as big as we expected. However, we enjoyed the cabin just the same. There was room to walk around. It was clean, the bed was comfortable, and our steward, Carlito, was very just great. There was lots of storage space which was a real plus. We enjoyed this cabin very much.
