Mini-Suite with Balcony Cabins

6 Reviews
Substantially larger than a balcony stateroom, a mini-suite includes all the same amenities of a balcony stateroom, plus the added luxuries of a welcome glass of champagne, separate seating area, sofa bed, two flat screen televisions, marble top furniture, a closet and bathroom tub.

Our mini-suite was fine, with a couple of qualifications. Perhaps some would be more bothered than we were by being right under the Lido deck near the pool, if it annoys you to hear deck furniture moving around during the day, and some footsteps. The balconies on this ship are a joke, though. It isn't so much that they are downsized from other Princess ships, but that they aren't even large enough to pull the footrests out from under the chairs. If the weather had been better I am sure this would have a major gripe. Suffice to say I would prefer a different ship for a warm-weather cruise.

The cabins are nicely appointed but the Royal has small mini suites compared to other Princess ships; you really shouldn't waste the extra money on a mini suite unless you find an absolute bargain. The cabins have cozy bed linens but interestingly no traditional sheets/blankets (we didn't miss them and thought this was innovative). The bath towels though were harsh to the touch especially after a bit too much sun at the beach or pool. A number of other passengers noted this and we later found out from the crew that the chosen bath linens take less time to dry thus provide significant energy savings.

What a wonderful cruise! Dackelprincess

I was surprised that our mini-suite really was mini. The cabin in narrower, than the one we had on Ruby, but she still was nicely appointed. I must point out that the new flat screen TVs and optional movie, TV, ships channels, live news, and new movies, made the entertainment in our cabin really nice. At the end of a long day, we would climb into bed, and watch a little TV. Our mini-suite also had a full bath tub and shower, and I decided to take a bath twice! What a pleasure that was. The balcony was narrow, but we did sit outside and read during one of the sea days.
I would recommend this mini-suite and book it again.

Our mini-suite on the Caribe Deck (Deck 10 mid-forward/starboard) was very good, with a nice layout although the balcony was tiny. It was very quiet. There was lots of storage and a large closet. The bed was very comfortable and there was two large flat screen TVs - one in the seating area and one opposite the bed. The bathroom was spacious and the shower had good water flow.

R335/339

Our adjoining mini suites--R335 & 339--were spacious and nicely decorated in beige with blue and gold. The mini suite did not seem any smaller than the ones on the Crown and the smaller balcony was no big deal. On the balcony, my husband and I had plenty of room to lounge, often eat breakfast, and enjoy the view. The bathroom had plenty of storage area for all our toiletries, and the tub/shower combo was a nice addition. We never had trouble with water pressure or availability of hot water. The queen size bed was very comfortable and the pillows plush. Our wonderful cabin stewart Dennis was always smiling, eager to answer questions, delivered any additional items quickly, and kept our room immaculate. Our cabins R335 & 339 were conveniently mid ship forward so we often headed to the forward stairs to get to the deck we wanted and then proceeded aft.
