Cabin B704
Jun 2013
This cabin was fine. It was on the Port side and for this sailing/itinerary we always seemed to be in the sun in the afternoon which made it hot to sit out on the balcony but we were able to use our balcony a lot due to the time of the year. Stateroom is the same on all the Princess ships and is big enough. One of the features I like is the big closet with room enough to sit your suitcase or extra bags if they don't all fit under the bed. The beds were comfortable.

Birthday Cruise By: Perfect Storm
Very compact with nice furnishings, very clean bathroom, great veranda. Everything worked, nothing broken or torn, no dust or dirt. Housekeeping does a good job of maintaining the cabin.

Overall, a Nice Trip By: CaliforniaDon
Fine. We ask NOT to be upgraded, since that often means a slightly larger "mini-suite" at the cost of less balcony. Staying toward the rear of the ship means shorter walks if you want to bring some buffet food to your cabin.

Cabin B509
Feb 2015
Staterooms are pretty much the same on all Princess ships and on the Ruby we had a balcony cabin on Baja. I specifically chose this deck because of the balcony configuration. The decks above do not look down on our balcony as opposed to those below, which we over looked. We had no cabin complaints.

Cabin A243
Jan 2015
The stateroom was an upgrade from an obstructed view room so obviously we were happy. The room was clean, though a bit dated. The size was ample for the two of us. The bathroom was a tight squeeze but, of course, we didn't spend a lot of time there.Our steward was great. He was quiet and unobtrusive but responsive when we needed help. (As first time cruisers we needed a lot!)The level we were on was fairly quite outside of the revelry of the New years celebration. The views from the balcony were amazing. I had several days were time was spent reading on the deck.

Extended balcony. Now the only thing is there lots of room on the balcony but the furniture was only to chairs and tall table. NO Lounger No way to put up your feet. And the it was floor was hard- So not happy to have paid a lot for a balcony that we could stretch out

Good room. Balcony offered combination of sun or privacy (but too cold to spend much time).

Cabin A 734
Sep 2013
Balcony cabins at Aloha deck 7 aft port side A734, A738, A742. Category DB. 285 sq ft / 26.5 sq m room with Queen-size bed, or 2 twin beds. Clean, nice cabin with everything we needed. Open closet with lots of hanging space, but somehow limited shelf space. Could be more clothes-hangers, but our room attended got it for us. Bath was tiny, but OK. Balcony had good view, 2 chairs and a small table. Mostly shaded by roof located 2 decks over us and therefore protected from rain.

Cabin B342
Mar 2013
B342, Baja deck, very good for two adults. the bed is a little firm but request the waffle pad to be put on it. Surprisingly ample storage for clothes. Shower is tiny, and if you bend over for the soap, wither the shower curtain will go out over the floor, or the faucet will get you in the behind. No bathroom fan so the mirror will fog every time. Beautiful view form the balcony, very pleasant to sit and enjoy the water. Quiet location but close enough to the elevators for easy access.

Cabin B326
Dec 2012
Our cabin was okay. The bathroom was very small with very limited storage in the shower area as well as the shower being small with a curtain! Storage for clothes was good with plenty of hangers. The good thing about this cabin was that the balcony had an overhang that covered the balcony so when we did have a slightly rainy day, we still could be out there, unlike the cabins below us.

We usually book mini-suites, but booked a balcony room this time to save money. I found the room to be perfect. It had a flat screen tv, mini-fridge, hair dryer, plenty of closet space, night stand with drawers for storage, desk with drawers for storage, an in room-safe, and storage under the beds which we did not use. The balcony had two chairs and a small table. The beds were comfy. I found the location to be convenient. Our cabin was about four cabins from the main elevators in the middle of the ship so it was a quick trip to everything from our room and not too noisy. We were in bed every night by 10 pm and never woke up to noisy people in the hallway.

On the Ruby Princess take a cabin on deck 11 or higher. Those below have exposed balconies. Cabin was as expected with adequate storage and comfortable beds.

New Years Cruise 11-12 on Ruby Princess By: PrincessEliteCruiser
B701 is a balcony cabin. Both the Aloha and Baja deck balcony cabins are recessed a little. For a bigger balcony cabin, book on Capri or Dolphin deck. Also B701 was a little farther back then we usually book. I'd try a little further forward for a better "ride". The fulcrum on the "Ruby" class ships is about 2/3's back.

Cabin A722
Dec 2011
A722 was located near the aft of the ship. Adequate size but the sacrifed cabin space for a larger closet area on the other side which I think was wasted space. Would have liked a larger room instead. TV is flat screen but very small and hard to see. Night table are a good size and have two drawers. Balcony was a good size but glass partition is high and once on the balcony you need to stand up to see over it.

Our stateroom was right at the entrance to the elevator lobby and it was still quiet. Lots of closet space (for two women). Air conditioner worked wonderfully well. Shower has curtain closing and is small. We wondered how some very large people could cope in them.

Cabin B431
Aug 2011
Cabin was a little tight when two people are walking around at the same time. The balcony was great to have. Closet space was adequate for the amount of clothes we brought. Cabin location was on the port side in the center of the ship right next to the elevators which was very convenient. The washroom was a little tight.

B230 BEOur cabin was fine--good storage--decent bathroom. Lounge chairs on the balcony would have been real nice instead of just the chairs. This room was close to the forward elevator--no noise from the elevator or stairs.

Cabin B631 was clean, bright but floor vibrations persisted throughout the cruise while other rooms had none. Would not book this room again on this ship.

Anniversary Cruise By: Cubbles8
We had a balcony cabin on the Aloha deck. The room was small compared to other cruise ships we have been on. Instead of a couch, you get a chair. The room was clean except for the duvet comforter cover. We had to request a clean one. Also, Princess does not give you a top sheet unless you request it.

Nice cabin, large closet, could use more shelf space. Occasional cigarette smoke on the balcony, and could hear conversations of those on nearby balconies too easily.

Tiny shower stalls, private, but small balcony, close to elevators and easy access to Horizon Cafe and Lido Deck. Pleasant room. Will have a problem if want a king bed with the bunk down. Have no idea why this is a "safety issue", but apparently is.

Our Ruby Princess Adventure By: chasinraynbowz
Smaller than Carnival, but roomy enough for just the 2 of us. Having a balcony helped! Great location, near the midship elevators. Very quiet.
