Great cabin location. Central location. Small window, but adequate.

Comfortable in size, unacceptable bedding and A/C that wasn't working at optimal performance. The sink was stopped up, the shower curtain smelled of mildew.

Our cabin was very nice. Princess has a good layout with the bathroom & closet on one side, separate from the bed/desk/chair area. Our cabin steward, Freddie, was friendly, helpful & was quick to clean our room & tidy up. I got frosting on my jacket one day, so I did a load of laundry near our room. Also discovered they have ironing boards in there! The bed wasn't the most comfortable bed I've slept on, but it was ok. I heard after our week, they were doing some upgrades: new mattresses, carpeting, etc. Read Less

Our obstructed ocean view cabin was of nice size and well laid out. The picture window was larger than I expected it to be. We had found pictures of the ship's cabins on the internet and thought the obstructed view was okay, but in person we were happy to find the view better than expected. It was obstructed, but I didn't have to stand on tip-toes in order to see over the tender boat...so I was one VERY happy cruiser!!! The closet location was excellent - right outside the bathroom door. It was long, open, with more than enough hangers for us. Shelf storage above the hanging items (life jackets located here). Below the hanging items is ample floor area for luggage storage, shoes, and room for our small pop-up laundry hamper to sit (very convenient!). A storage cabinet with a door stood between the open closet and the bathroom. It had approximately six or seven shelves - the safe was located on one of them. The bathroom was of good size, a nice counter top to sit things on while showering and getting ready. Three small shelves along one side. A couple of glasses were on one and the other two could be used for keeping items in the bathroom, if desired. The shower, however, was dinky! It's adequate to shower in if you're small to moderately plus-size (which we are), but would not be fun if you are very plus-size or want to shave your legs while showering. Thank goodness I shaved them before the trip, and I’m old enough the hair doesn’t grow as fast anymore :D. You may end up bumping the walls, knocking yourself out, or covered in shower curtain :o. I wasn't too crazy about the placement of the wall bottles of shower gel and shampoo/conditioner - a little too low. The room wasn't too far from a set of elevators. There was a crew area across from our cabin door. There wasn't much noise coming from this area except for the last night when luggage collection was going on, but really the noise wasn't bad and didn't last too long into the night. Since it was a forward cabin, it was quite a walk to and from the buffet, but that can be a good thing :-) . Read Less

This is officially an obstructed view cabin, but I thought the view was fantastic. There are no lifeboats or other equipment in front of the window; just a platform above and below the window.

Princess ships do a very good job in the cabin layouts. I actually chose the same stateroom as the one we had 10 months ago. Even though it was an obstructed ocean view, the window is large and it located above a storage container, not a lifeboat. There is quite a view from this cabin. I especially like the closet/dressing area right off the bathroom. It gives a person plenty of privacy, while allowing for access to shelves and closet. Appreciate that the safe uses a password instead of a credit card, etc. It was much faster and easier to use. Read Less

We had an obstructed view cabin (Category FF) on the Emerald deck. Our cabin number was E415 and it is exactly in the middle of the ship, directly above the shops. It is right next to the middle elevators, but we didn't hear any noise from the elevators or people waiting for them. Even though the cabin is supposed to have a "fully" obstructed view, that was really not the case. We had ZERO obstruction outside our window, unless you were on top of the window and looked down. Then, you could see a landing and some of the Promenade deck. We had no problems seeing the water below or the islands from our window. A big "knock" against this room was that at random times there would be a LOUD metal clanging coming from outside. It happened quite a bit in the early morning and was quite disturbing. Also, we had the air conditioning set to the lowest level throughout the cruise, and mid-day the temperature was a bit warmer than we would have liked. Other times it was comfortable, but you could never really say it ever got cold in the room. The room was laid out well, and we had plenty of storage space. I definitely liked the large space to hang things up. The bed was definitely firm as stated by many, and we had a hard time getting restful sleep. The bathroom was extremely well laid out, but the shower was tiny. I'm a pretty big guy and it was definitely claustrophobic. Plus, the shower head was at my neck level, so I had to do a limbo-like act to wash my hair. The room had a refrigerator in which we stored our own stash. Read Less
Aruba and more.... : Cabin E416

Loved the cabin - our view was not obstructed. Initially worried that it was too close to the elevators and it would be noisy - very quiet.
