Not Worth It! chris1356
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.

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.

Great cabin, of course, I was alone in an accessible cabin. Tons of space, Closet big enough for 2. I didn't use an entire chest of drawers. Bathroom excellent.

A307 Covered Balcony
Close to stairs and elevators but not heard from cabin
Stable, 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.

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.

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.

STAMINA REQUIRED! Ruby Tuesday
A308 is opposite a crew space but not a great problem. We did get an early wake up call which we assumed was the gangplank being thrown out - shook the bed!

Princess vs HAL powderhorn
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!
