An oceanview stateroom with balcony offers a scenic view and more space. This cabin has two twin beds that make up into a queen-size bed. Other amenities include a refrigerator, television, large closet, desk, and bathroom with shower. Approximately 232 to 274 square feet, including balcony.
Well looked after by excellent and friendly cabin steward, Cabin well appointed and reasonably quiet so had a good night's sleep every night. However, although everything was there and working, carpet rather worn and balcony rusty ; fixtures and fittings looked a little past their best. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was so pretty, and clean when we arrived thanks to Arvan our room attendant. The hanging space is superior, as you have room even for all the clothes I manage to carry on a cruise (I overpack). Lots of nooks and drawers to store stuff.....plus I take the plastic hooks (that don't leave a mark on the walls0 to use for hanging hats, etc. DON'T FOR GET YOUR CLOCK as we did. Did you know you can not find a battery operated clock in any port to purchase....oh well, guess we didn't need to know what time it was. The balcony was so nice and private on the upper level. We always like having a balcony with the sounds of the ocean to lull us to sleep.
Crown does need a bit of freshning, but we did not find it unpleasant. Will love seeing it when it comes OUT of drydock next year. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was accessible and very large and enough room for all of our clothing. The bad part was the bathroom smelled terrible. Like old and musty cigarette smell. The sliding door had a terrible squealing noise which we had to get fixed. Also if you are in this room be very very careful walking in from the balcony. If you step on the metal piece it caused another piece of metal to pop up blocking the door and two of us tripped on it. We called to have it fixed and it was for a few hours and it started doing this again. We called again and the same thing happened. This is a big hazard so be careful. Read entire member review >>
Have been on Princess 33 times, the Crown 3 times.....however this time the ship seemed very "shop worn", room was not cleaned very well, bed linen changed rarely, food overall quite good....however SABRATINIE'S RESTURANT WAS A BIG DISAPOINTMENT! Will still go with Princess as I enjoy all the perks that come with ELITE statis! Read entire member review >>
This was an accessible cabin, located immediately off the elevator lobby. It was generally quiet, with a little noise from teens partying in the hallways and stairs, but otherwise quiet. The ramp to the balcony did not work and had to be manually lifted every time we went back into the room from the balcony.
Smoking is prohibited on balconies but Princess did little to enforce it. We noticed at least two other cabins decided to light up. We were not able to enjoy the balcony due to the lack of fresh air. Read entire member review >>
Portside cabin, midship was small but adequate. Good and quiet location on the ship. Sliding door onto balcony with two chairs and small table was an added bonus for cruising Alaska. Bathroom shower very small with no space to put your shampoo bottles or soap. Separate closet/storage area separated from the main cabin which kept luggage out of the way. Cabin equipped with one TV, small bar fridge, desk, safe and hairdryer. Comfortable bed. Read entire member review >>
Large closet small balcony comfier bed on Crown than the rock hard one on Grand. Not enough electrical outlets as usual. Lots of noise from pool deck one level up when late night party vibrates through the ceiling. Toilet got plugged up but they quickly fixed it. Efficient room steward. Read entire member review >>

The cabin is more than adequate. Great closet space, could use a bit more shelving but not that much of a problem. The room gets a bit cramped with four in it, so i would recommend two or three. The balcony is terrific and private, as opposed to those you are looking down at. I would recommend this room and category on this ship. Read entire member review >>
This room was way bigger and more airy than I thought it would be. It was very clean; I only noticed one light scuff mark on one wall. We had a comfortable queen bed, make-up table and mirror, 2 bedside tables and lamps. The balcony has two chairs and a small table that often doubled as an ottoman for us. The cool thing about this balcony was that the levels above it extend as far from the boat as ours did, so no one above us could look down on us. Read entire member review >>
Very spacious and comfortable - better than most hotels. Lots of storage space. Very good thermostat. Great access for wheelchair user. The only problem was that the electrical outlets were across the room from the head of the bed, where my husband needed to plug in his power chair charger and CPAP machine.

There is low level noise and vibration but not annoying. At the worst time, we turn our pliilows the other way and feel no problem. That only occurred once for a few hours. The toilet is vaccum operated and worked fine. Read entire member review >>
We had a aft-facing balcony cabin on the Dolphin deck (D735). We chose this cabin after reading some reviews advising that aft-facing cabins are better than side balconies. The balcony is bigger and it is nice having a different view and less wind. Also, this cabin only has a neighbor on one side so it is quiet. On the down side, I noticed a smell of sewage when I opened the door to the shelves that contain the safe. It was especially bad the first couple of days, but was only a problem when standing near it. The other negative of the aft cabins is the time and effort it takes to get to the front of the ship. It's like walking a block or so. I had read that the third person in our cabin would be on a roll-away bed. That didn't happen. I slept on the pull down bed. Those beds aren't bad, but I recommend asking the cabin steward to add an egg crate to make it more comfortable. Also, in this cabin, the ladder to the pull-down bed was difficult to place without blocking the path to the bathroom. Bottom line is, if money is anything of an issue, I won't pay extra for the aft-facing cabin in the future. Read entire member review >>
Room nice. but small. Like the room split from bathroom by closet & gives some separation from the hallway. Bathroom tiny but met needs. Shower is small & if your 6"FT and above god help you. Beds are beat up. Not very comfortable and seem well used. Wife's side of bed must have had some heavy people and seemed bent in middle. I don't know why they cant have a 2 person couch.

Princess is one of the best cruise line in regard to wheelchair accessible cabins. They are spacious, comfortable and easily accessible, mostly located near forward elevators. Nice balcony, although the ones on Caribe Deck are more spacious. Read entire member review >>
Balcony was nice. We had a quad and sardined all of us into the one room. I would NOT recommend this! Nobody could watch TV once the upper berths were down, and it was claustrophobic. Kids did not like the upper berths, so my poor husband slept up there -- and I slept in my mother's room! The outer edges of upper berths were so sharp, we cut our arms and the kids kicked their heads. We started putting them up when we got up - not difficult to do. Read entire member review >>
We liked our 2 mini suites on Dolphin. In particular we liked the bath and extra room in the bathroom and the sitting area.
Negative? The balcony chairs were worn and had holes and the deck matting on the balcony was dirty - it was stained and needed replacing. Read entire member review >>
