So disappointing. cllucas44

Odder placement of furniture (blocking the balcony) and more deferred maintenance than on other similar balcony cabins. Huge closet but you don't live in them.

Disappointing Sunandfunseeker

The stateroom was small and the shower was so small that if you were a large person and dropped the soap, you would need to step out of the shower to pick it up!! Dispensed shampoo/conditioner provided was of poor quality.

Coming home mcphail

On deck 12, balcony with overhang, which was good if it rained you could still sit out, also not overlooked, we could look down on the suite balconys which I felt, although bigger didnt have the same privicy. We were just below the Horizon Grill,but we never heard any noise or chairs being moved about.

balcony: smallish but enjoyable; as we were on Aloha Deck, we overlooked lower deck balconies and were not overlooked by anyone. storage: great closet and drawer space cabin condition: looking somewhat aged with dents and marks on wood trim bed: major disappointment as bedding was old and pillows "lumpy" - replacements were not an improvement location: great location just rear of midships; quiet and no noise heard from hallway and public areas above; just a few doors down from clean laundry area

C114
C114 is a balcony room located in the forward, left part of the ship. Since the room is located in the front of the ship, we really felt it when the sea was rough and the waves were high. The room itself was super nice. Very roomy and the balcony was big too. Lots of room to hang your clothes.

We enjoy a rear corner cabin because of the privacy and the extra large balcony for this category of cabin. The disadvantage can be noise if you dislike the ships wake or noise of thrusters. No wake noise with balcony door closed. Aft of ship will have motion in rough seas. We had very smooth seas for 28 days.

Nice closet space, safe, small bathroom, great balcony space, half covered, half uncovered, private. Convenient to aft elevators and laundry, quiet (never heard the elevators or people getting off). Comfortable bed, uncomfortable pillows. Nice robes! Best side for southbound inside passage. Never felt much movement from the ship.

C239
Sapphire Princess cabin C239: The cabin is divided into two parts. The closet and bathroom are separate from the sleeping and sitting area. I really like the layout of the cabin; though I wish the shower was bigger (it is bigger than the standard Royal Caribbean shower but not as big as the standard Carnival shower). To be fair, I've also been on NCL twice, and although the shower size is generous, I don't like the layout of the bathroom (I have not been on the Epic). The cabins on the Caribe Deck (deck 10), which is what I am on, have big balconies that are about one third covered and two thirds open. The balconies above me (the Aloha and Baja decks) have smaller balconies that are completely covered. The mini suites below me have completely exposed balconies (don't even attempt to join the balcony club if you are in a Dolphin Deck mini suite).

C252
C252- category BB. Room seemed small but the last two cruises were on balcony minisuites, but for one night, it was fine. Caribe is in a good location to go down to the plaza level or up to the buffets & pools. C 252 was relatively close to elevators/stairs, and did not have excessive noise from any source. An ok room despite the open balcony.

WOW!!! Abbiet33
Great cabin. Very firm bed. Tiny but adequate bathroom, lots of closet and storage room. Space under the bed for luggage. Amazing rounded corner balcony with two chairs and two loungers with small table. Great aft views and soothing sound of the wake when the ship is moving. Very quiet hallway but a long way to the elevators and dining rooms. Would suggest you use formal dining in the main dining room unless you enjoy lots of walking :) Right next to emergency stairway.

Right up at the front and little more movement was felt, but nothing terrible. At night, there sounded like a lot of "something" striking our back wall. Never figured out what it was. Everything was good.

A611 Sapphire Princess......Located right across from Laundry room and right below Buffet.....We could hear neither from our room. Room was the same size as the Inside staterooms that we had had. Loved the balcony it was covered but we still got full sun while travelling down the Mexican Rivera coast. Bed was really really hard so we had a foam topper put on which helped abit. Lots of hangers and space to hang up and put all of our clothes away :0 Loved this room.

C119
C119 is a balcony room.  Great view from room looking towards balcony.  Also great to have access to balcony for watching glaciers and whales.

Room is forward and does have more motion than one in center.  We did encounter a storm and ship rocked a lot..in that case no area is calm.

Closet is very adequate.  Bathroom is functional but small.  Bed is a little hard. Watch the step into the bathroom!  Climate control is good.

Aloha deck mid ship balcony. Balconies are very enjoyable but are only big enough for two people to enjoy comfortably. Mid ship we rarely felt any ship movement. The Aloha deck on the Sapphire is below the Horizon court buffet. You can hear trolly's going back and forth occassionally. Mid ship is a nice area as the front and back of the ship are easily accessible.

Who am I on Sapphire Princess? Amelia aka ibfern
Our room was okay; the drawers were broken and had to be messed with to get them closed. The beds seemed smaller and shorter than on other ships but this is my first balcony room and I am used to mini suites so I was in bathroom shock for the first few days. Everything worked except our toilet started to back up and delay the flush (don't know why this happens) but it never got bad and we did not have to have it repaired.
