A private balcony is just one of many fabulous features. These categories also include twin beds which make up into a comfortable queen-size bed, a refrigerator and TV, a spacious closet and a bath with shower.
Caribe balconies on Grand class ships as the Star Princess is, are to me the most desirable. They are 9 feet deep versus 6 feet on other balconies. Also, they are half covered giving you the option of sun or protection against the elements. Read entire member review >>
This was our 1st cruise and we were upgraded to this room from a Starboard balcony room.
Balcony is shaded
Balcony is slightly bigger
Beautiful view from balcony
Only 1 neighbor to our right
Spacious room for 2
Amazing Stateroom Steward ( Adrian Burgui )
Right above the Vista Lounge (if you are a light sleeper, bring ear plugs for sure) some nights the music went until midnight and it is loud.
Small bathroom but was expected
Bed was ok to me but my husband was uncomfortable and woke up sore every day Read entire member review >>
I was “upsold” from an ocean view cabin on Plaza deck to a BD balcony on B (Baja) deck. Cabin B704 was close to the stern, and immediately adjacent to the elevators and stairs in stern portion of the ship. I was a bit concerned about noise from the elevators and people congregating there, but I only heard noise a couple of times. I will say that we had an older crowd on board for this cruise, and also being near the stern there was not as much traffic. If I was to chose again I would try to avoid the stairwell but I enjoyed the Baja deck, and liked the privacy (no one looks down from above) as well as liking the having an accommodations deck above to protect from the noise of Horizon Court. Also, the Baja deck balconies are fully covered, which would be very welcome in warmer climates. Read entire member review >>
Quiet location but quite far aft. Plus is that there were no other balconies looking down on us so it had privacy. We looked down on 3 more decks of balconies below us. Better to book a balcony on Caribe deck as these are much larger balconies, 1/2 covered and 1/2 uncovered. Would be nice if they made the closet area a little smaller and use that space in the bathroom. Toilet kept running (clean water) and overflowed onto the bathroom floor twice until maintenance was called to fix this. Also, water shot out of the facet towards the vanity mirror.

The room was pretty big, and the balcony was nice, however the way that the balconies are staggered meant that we (on the top deck) saw all of the lower balconies, more privacy would have been nice Read entire member review >>
Large closet with tons of wooden hangars. Lots of extra storage and drawers. Starboard the side to be on with this cruise. Large balcony with two loungers and table. Quiet stable location, just aft of midship. Good open view. Comfortable bed and also bar fridge. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin, B732 was a regular sized cabin with more than adequate space for us. The shower was small as usual but easy enough to get used to and there were magnets on the curtains to keep them away from hugging our bodies! Our port side balcony was smallish but perfect for the southbound cruise, we saw all the glaciers and other sites as well. The balcony had new furniture which was comfortable and the large table was a bonus, we usually get those smaller tables on the balconies. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was fine. The bed was good but pillows a bit sorry....maybe we should have requested replacements! Nice closet space with easy accessibility. Would have liked more electric outlets. With four couples in our party, they opened dividers between balconies and that made for so much fun! Read entire member review >>
BD Balcony cabin is essentially an outside cabin with a small balcony with two chairs and a table. It does have a roof which is a plus. The beds can be configured as a queen or two twins. There is a mini refrigerator. Also two extra chairs for sitting. Certainly there is enough drawer and closet space. The location- forward and Starboard on Baja deck- was great for us-quiet and we got the afternoon shade most of the time on the balcony-but with the roof there was usually a shaded spot. Bathroom has head ans small shower and enough space for toiletries. Read entire member review >>
