This cabin is tight for two people. The balcony doesn't make up for it. Being aft on this ship is not a huge disadvantage, the whole ship layout is a mess. There was a fair amount of machinery noise along with the wake. There often was a nasty kitchen smell you had to ignore. Read entire member review >>
Our balcony cabin was probably the smallest we've encountered but shows that good things can come in small packages. The balcony itself was quite comfortable and the location of the cabin (A235) was very convenient. We were just around the corner from Fwd lifts, very helpful when going to and from the Princess Theater. Plenty of storage was available in the desk, bedside tables, and closet areas. Since we need to avoid smoke due to allergies, the best path to the dining rooms was to take the hallway all the way aft to the mid-ship lifts so we weren't subjected to the stench coming from the casino on 6. I would have no problem requesting the same or similar cabin again. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was fine. Not exceptional. Bathroom needed updating. Do.not like the way the soap,and shampoo are set in a large container. Feels more like a public gym than an hotel. Read entire member review >>
We had a lovely balcony cabin. The balcony was definitely an upgrade since having the sliding glass doors gave the illusion of the room being much bigger. The bed was very comfortable giving us the best nights sleep ever. The closest had shelves which were adequate since there was another area that had hangers for more of our clothes.

The state room was quite spacious with a comfortable Queen sized bed, corner unit housing a TV & a fridge, dressing table, table & chair.
There was ample hanging & drawer space in the cloak room area which also housed an in-room safe.
The small bathroom was supplied with some toiletries & had soap/shampoo dispensers in the shower.
A table & 2 chairs sat on the balcony.
Our steward made the room up twice a day, turning the bed down & leaving chocolates on the pillow in the evening. Read entire member review >>
Cabin C753 - a starboard/aft balcony (actually the back corner of the ship). Excellent location which is quiet and very private given that the balcony is covered and not viewable by others. Room was very comfortable and well equipped. Read entire member review >>
We had a lovely balcony room on the 14th Floor- R620- this spacious room had more than adequate storage space for suitcases under the bed and a huge walk in wardrobe area with plenty of hanging space for clothes. This floor was great as the buffet and main pool were only one floor up and if you walked all the way across the corridor you could get to the pool and bar at the back of the ship.The bathroom, like on most ships, is very compact- the running joke on the cruise was ‘what happens when you slip over in the shower? - nothing, you can’t go anywhere’.We never had any issues with water temperature or pressure. There was also a handy drying line in the shower where you could hang up any clothes you had washed by hand. We were not far from the Laundry room but this got very busy towards the end of the trip and we thought it was expensive.My word of advice is that if you like to use a hairdryer to blow dry your hair make sure you BRING YOUR OWN! The hairdryer in the room is useless, it was easier for me to sit on the balcony and let my hair dry naturally, this was quicker than using the world’s slowest hairdryer!We were only woken up a couple of mornings by people moving around the sunbeds on the deck above us- but never heard any other noise.I was glad we were not further down the corridor toward the laundry room- there seemed to be an unpleasant ‘smell’ from a cupboard which I can only imagine was to do with the toilets- it wasn’t pleasant and was there for the majority of the stay, I don’t know if anything could be smelt in the rooms in that area though.Our balcony was spacious and being the top deck meant that no one was overlooking us which we liked, we however could see down into everyone’s balcony’s (I think people forget this and we did spot a lot of people in their underwear!)

Beds on Princess remain uncomfortable! Cleaning practices are questionable. Smoking passengers on a non-smoking cruise were not reported! I think of the ship as mid- line cruise not bare bones but not luxury. Read entire member review >>
Really liked being in the aft part of the ship. Two floors down from the Horizon Court/Lido Deck and then just down the stairs to the Deck 7 or Deck 5 to eat. Very convenient. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was on the Baja Deck 239
Back to our room to unpack a few things. I LOVE the cabin set up. The closet is about 5 feet long, with plenty of hangers. There are several shelves for other clothing items along with the safe. The bathroom is standard for a cruise ship, it has a shower curtain - which clings sometimes. I certainly hope Princess goes to the sliding glass doors on their new ship as well as having a proper place to put your shampoo and soap so they don't fall in the floor all the time. A place to put your leg while shaving would be nice too. The refrigerator was very cold which is great! One thing Princess does is put your ice bucket inside the refrigerator. It is a thermas bucket, that you could keep outside if you want, but it helps keep your ice frozen longer while tucked in the fridge. Nice idea! Beds were extremely comfortable. Balcony had some type of blue material with a design on them that let water seep through to the bottom. The Blue was very nice although a bit tough on bare feet. Two chairs and a table made it really nice to sit outside and take in the view of Ft. Lauderdale before we departed. Read entire member review >>
Center ship is the place to be ,with a balcony .Our cabin person(toni) was the best .Always said ''Hi ,good-morning .Have a nice dinner ,do you need anything ! "" .If you are a big person the showers will be a problem .
Would like ship's beach towels that were embodied like other ships .The small beach carry bag given by the ship was useful Read entire member review >>
Closet configuration made it seem like we had more room than a typical enclosed closet. Third bed that folded down from ceiling while convenient may be difficult for some (head bumps and access); the ladder did not fit except by blocking access to the bathroom and hall. The sliding door to the balcony was great as it could be left open; some we have been on are 'swing open doors'. TV channel selection could be better and maybe bigger plus a wider variety of music. Pretty quiet except from the hallway in the morning when everyone is rushing for excursions (no worse than any other cruise). I'd give the cabin itself a 4.5 out of 5. Read entire member review >>
