Don't go for the food! By: Looking4somethingspecial
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.

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.

Cabin R 630
Mar 2016
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 .....

Romantic and Relaxing Cruise! By: mrswallace2012
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!

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.

Not Worth It! By: 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.

Cabin R209

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.

Sweet September Crossing By: pointpetre
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.

Someone Kill Me Please! By: Omega_Man
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.

Cabin R210
Apr 2011
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.

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 By: 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!
