Our cabin was as expected (based on Cruise Critic reviews) and comfortable. The bed and pillows were pure bliss. Plenty of closet and cabinet/drawer space. The bathroom is too small. Our cabin steward, Rudi, was excellent. He was very attentive without being a nuisance and immediately responded to our needs. We especially appreciated the acknowledgement of our anniversary...very cute. Read entire member review >>
The steward was very friendly and attentive. I believe he did the best he could considering the circumstances. He is the only person on the cruise that actually earned an additional tip. The cabins on this ship are begging to be cleaned and updated. Read entire member review >>
Good sized balcony with some overhead protection, obnoxious neighbor next door kept smoking on his balcony even after I took him to task and the security staff warned him not to smoke...selfish inconsiderate dolt. Very comfortable bed, adequate storage space for 3 weeks, superb cabin attendant (Liliana), HVAC worked well. Read entire member review >>
Good. Our stateroom server was ninja-like. He came and went but I never saw him, but our room was always immaculate and prepped, with fresh towels, clean sheets, and chocolates on the bed. No one told us, however, that one of us would have to climb a ladder and sleep in a loft. The drain in the shower clogged. The hairdryers provided have no power and no cool shot. Anyone who styles their hair with a hairdryer had better bring their own because the ones provided were useless. If you ask, they will bring you a bathrobe so you don't have to pack one. We had a balcony, but for the most part while you are at sea, all you can see is the sea; no scenery. I thought we would spend time out there but we didn't. Read entire member review >>
Great to finally have a balcony. Our room allowed for a 3rd passenger, the bed dropped down from the ceiling.
Not a huge room, but the balcony made if feel bigger as we had a second sitting area. Read entire member review >>
Clean small, but enough room for two, any more would be tight, especially for drawer space & the closet. The TV was fuzzy the whole time. Not many decent movies, & the music channel selections were lacking, & horrible choices for music to the age majorities. Much nicer mix on Royal & Regal ships. Our patio furniture was old & pretty banged up, losing paint, incl. the bottom railing, ugh. The Ruby looking a little old on the exterior nowadays. Our fridge spirits were not of our taste, had to exchange out 3 varieties. Toilet problems on several occasions not flushing over 3/4 days, & smelly. Our neighbors demanded to be moved, very upset, no excuses on this one Princess !Our room steward was a strange guy, who needs to retire, bad attitude ..... Read entire member review >>
We loved the location of our cabin, we were seconds away from the pools, MUTS,pizza,burgers,icecream, and bars. Very nice for when we wanted to enjoy food in our room. The views were incredible! We could see the bridge which was awesome. We could also see lovers beach when in PV, it was all very lovely.
We would recommend this cabin! Read entire member review >>
The cabin was serviceable, but needs an update and deep cleaning. The carpeting should be replaced among other things.
As with the dining service, I believe that Princess cut back on cabin steward staff. I wonder if this is the case on all their ships. Read entire member review >>
The cabin bathroom smelled of mold and the shower overflowed on the bathroom and needed to have the drain fixed. The toilet stopped working at one point but was fixed promptly. The balcony cabin was much smaller than on other cruise lines and the bathroom was very tiny. Read entire member review >>
Our room was a balcony, forward on deck 14. I like these “out of the way” cabins. No foot traffic. So the only people in our area were other guests that went there on purpose. The room itself is designed well. The “closet” – no doors, hence the quotes – is positioned fore to aft so that it separates the bathroom from the bed. Great design to keep the noise out of the bed area. One can go to the bathroom and get dressed without lighting up the whole room. Balcony was plenty big enough for two chairs and a small table.

Very comfortable room in good repair. Adequate closet and storage. Decent television programming that stood up well on a Transatlantic. The shelf area added in the shower to hold the shampoo dispenser was a good addition. We could hang razors there. Caribe Deck balconies are large. They have both open and shaded areas. The privacy partitions are effective wind breaks. Read entire member review >>
Riviera 238 port-side, deck 14, lovely balcony. Could see bridge well (Captain used to wave to us occasionally) very quiet, no disturbance. Queen bed, lots of wardrobe space and hangers, fridge etc. excellent quality fittings and fixtures. Read entire member review >>
C635. Great balcony. Big, lots of chairs. Confusing shower, water taps. Small shower. Location on ship good for access to things elsewhere. Service in the room good. Nothing mechanicaly wrong in the room. Read entire member review >>
A436- starboard side- good midship location, close to elevators but not noisy, small bathroom, fantastic storage space, no noise above or below, suitable for families had upper berth Read entire member review >>
A307 Covered BalconyClose to stairs and elevators but not heard from cabinStable, quiet. No noise from above.Close to Neptune's pool (two decks up)Only noise was night before disembarkation because luggage elevators were across hall from our cabin. Noise stopped around midnight.

R701. This room is directly below the Horizon Cafe and next to the fire doors, as a result you hear carts all night long as the wait staff moves them and the wheels hit the steel bar on the ground that seal the fire door when it closes.
On the other hand you go up one flight and boom you're at the buffet.
As a result I can't recommend this room at all, move two or three towards the back and it could be much better. Read entire member review >>
I loved being on deck 14 because deck 15 sheltered our balcony. The lower decks stuck out form the sides of the ship so they were not sheltered and we could look down onto those balconies. I also loved being far forward because I could look onto the cantilevered port side of the bridge. Read entire member review >>
we were on caribe deck room 601. right in the middle. had a balcony. was quiet except for day we were on princess cays. we heard them hoisting and lowering the tender boats to the water. but that was the only downside. was smooth and didn't rock much on the times we had some rough seas.

Great cabin and location in center of ship. Veranda was extra large probably because stateroom has bunk beds in the ceiling. Plenty of storage space and nice layout. Only complaint is that it was too warm and we had to leave the slider open at night. Read entire member review >>
The cabin is typical of a balcony cabin across the Princess fleet. The shower is quite small, but the arrangement of the closet makes it easy to get at your things. The beds are not as comfortable as HAL, but ok. We like the idea that the door to the balcony is a conventional sliding door which can be left ajar to enjoy the fresh air while sleeping.

The rooms are typical cruise rooms in terms of size. I will give a slight nod to Princess for how the closet is kind of separated from the rest of the room. It runs perpendicular to the rest of the room so that it has it's own little entry way, which is also shared by the bathroom. Makes you feel like the main room is really a living room with bathroom and closet separate. We've heard Princess mattresses are kinda' hard. We agree! Like the flat screen tvs, but no access to ship board account to keep track of expenses. Very clean! Read entire member review >>
