Our room was a balcony cabin with a door connecting to the adjoining cabin. We didn't request it and, going forward, I will avoid that option. Our neighbor was hard of hearing and his wife was insistent so their conversations competed with our TV volume. Our other neighbor was an early riser and didn't know that the cabin door and the balcony door could be closed gently. It wasn't a terrible condition, but after two weeks, it became annoying. Please remember that turning the balcony door handle downward will lock it. So if your cabin mate is reading on the balcony and you go downstairs for breakfast, he/she will be locked outside until you return. I often wonder if this is what happens when people disappear on cruise ships. To avoid the issue, leave the handle in a horizontal position. But during rough seas, turning the handle down will keep the door from sliding back & forth with the rocking of the ship.The refrigerator cabinet doesn't promote air circulation, so the wine and chocolates setting on top of the cabinet was heated beyond measure. We had to remind our room steward to leave the refrigerator cabinet door open so that the air would flow freely. The small refrigerator is adequate for the cruise, but it sets on the floor. It would be more easily accessed if it was raised to counter height. The beds are new and are touted as the best thing.... I was not impressed because I need a firm, solid support for a good night's rest. But the reaction from other passengers were mixed, but no bad comments. Medallion service is still not available on this ship, so we continued using our slide card for embarking & disembarking, drinks and room access. We don't do a lot of surfing or email communication, but since the cabin TV service has limited offers, we had planned to download or stream movies from the internet. That option vanished quickly as the internet was painfully slow. The TV can be paired with your media device to play music through the speakers, but the sound quality is not that great. We were glad that we remembered to pack headsets. You must remember to ask for bathrobes. In previous years the robes were automatically placed in the rooms for balcony, mini-suites, and suites. When they stopped putting them in the rooms, we didn't care because they were waaay too small for the big folks. But now I understand there is now a plush model that is available. Read Less

Our balcony cabin was very clean and in good repair. The carpet was showing wear, but consider how much traffic these cabins see. The only detail that struck me is that there is quite a bit of exterior rust showing. Each time the ship would be in port, the maintenance crew was immediately at work touching up white paint. However, all the touch-ups are showing and in places it looks rather patchy. This was most evident on many of the balconies. Overhead, bad rust was eating through the paint (despite evidence of past touch-ups). This certainly didn't bother us, only that every day our cabin steward had to pick up large flakes of old paint that would fall on the balcony floor and furniture. It also didn't make you want to eat outside on the balcony. I understand the Emerald Princess is soon to go into dry dock, so maybe she'll get a decent Earl Scheib paint job. Read Less

Our room steward Marlon kept our cabin done up beautifully. He fulfilled our requests immediately and was such a sweet, hard-working man.

We had connecting balcony cabins. The cabins had adequate space and the layout allowed privacy in a dressing area. The beds were as comfortable as advertised and a pleasure to get into at the end of the day.

We were upgraded to this cabin. What a quiet room. Very little noise. Middle section deck 11 (Baja) port side. The room didn’t look worn, it was very clean. Our Stewart was excellent. Plenty of closet space for the 15 day cruise. I’ve noted the cabin number for future cruises. It’s centrilized to the elevators areas. We did experience rocking but the seas did have a few days of roughness. Highly recommend this cabin. Read Less

Cabin was not roomy but space was adequate. Don't know what all of the classifications mean in the Cabin Category above but ours had a queen bed and a small balcony which was fine by us. The bed had quite a few "miles" on it as evidenced by the trench in the middle but was comfortable. The refrigerator was not working when we checked in but a call to the Passenger Service people got someone up to adjust the setting on it. However, it never got what you would actually call cold. Like the bed, the rest of the room showed some wear but was generally acceptable. The closet was actually quite roomy compared to what we have had on other ships. Read Less
