An oceanview stateroom with balcony offers a scenic view and more space. This affordable 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.
Our cabin needed a couple of repairs, leaky toilet and safe not working. You can notice that the cabin needed some TLC. It would be nice to have the big screen TV in the middle of the wall and on demand like the Royal and Regal. Read entire member review >>
We had a good one. However others were not so lucky e.g. comment one from cabin boy to another cabin boy overheard by passenger while placing room service tray out for collection “They must have been hungry – why can’t they eat with the rest of the passengers ?” Read entire member review >>
The cabin was aft on Baja deck, excellent position larger than average balcony with 4 chairs and a small table
Cabin was standard size bed and pillows were very comfortable
Large wardrobe with sufficient space for all my clothes and lots of my shoes
Bathroom was fit for purpose Read entire member review >>
Clean and reasonable size. Small but adeqaute balcony - which could have done with a clean... Bed and pillows were very comfy - had a great nights sleep. Best ever at sea, Loads of space to hang clothes as "walk-in" type wardrobe area by bathroom. Bathroom was small and shower was also small - manageable for us but others may find them cramped. Shower was hot, but not very powerful, controls - easy to use. Reasonable, but not luxurious toiletries (soap, lotion, shower gel, shampoo/conditioner) - although we always gtake our own. Towels changed daily - no plea to consider environment and re-use - which you generally find on cruise ships and you may take issue with this if you are"green"! Very pleasant and polite and helpful cabin steward. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was right next to the extended bridge on deck 14 - was quiet but quite a way from main activities - we didn't mind this. Was interesting to see the activity on the bridge and the view from the balcony is not limited by it.
Would like a sofa. Bed comfortable and lots of clothes and storage space. Read entire member review >>
Standard cabin as expected for this size of ship. Good size and comfortable bed. Fridge with water on arrival in the cabin but no tea coffee making facilities which is always nice.
Shower toilet as expected. Towels were changed twice a day and overall with the exception on one day the cabin was well cleaned. Read entire member review >>
I can't remember if that is the correct cabin category. It was one of the better balcony cabins, since it was aft. My parents were forward & heard the smashing of waves on the hull of the ship, and they said it kept them up a couple of nights.
My balcony cabin, Baja505 deck 11 starboard side closer to aft, was great. There was plenty of space and storage. The beds were very comfortable. There's an open closet area with a tall cabinet of shelves next to it, and I loved it. Bring wire hangers so you'll have tons of hanging space for clothing. The bathroom was OK. Small shower, but at least the curtain curved out. Bring an over the door plastic shoe holder, so you'll have plenty of toiletry storage space, since there's limited vanity/shelf space in the restroom. The balcony was nice and private. I could look down on balconies on decks 9 and 10, but mine was covered. My parents were in Dolphin201, a deck 9 starboard forward mini suite. They had an extra living room area with sleeper sofa, and their balcony extended out a little further, but it was 1 of those uncovered ones without privacy. Read entire member review >>
I rented a scooter for my husband which was delivered to our room. We had a handicap accessable room - A304 which was huge and was the biggest room we've ever experienced. It had a shower that could accomodate a wheel chair and the balcony had a little ramp that made it easy for him to go outside. The room easily held the scooter with room to spare. Also, it was right at the elevator! Our room steward, Christine, was delightful and always made sure we had a full bucket of ice. She also got a top sheet for me as the duvets get too hot during the night and the beds need a top sheet. Read entire member review >>
good cabin but wish they would hang the flat screen on wall at end of bed instead of corner wear you get a crick in your neck from watching it. Maybe they figure by doing that you need to get a massage> Read entire member review >>
The only positive thing about our cabin was our amazing attendant who was Not responsible for the unbearable conditions including poor air conditioning, cold water showers, no cold water in the sink so I washed my face and brushed my teeth with bottled water. Read entire member review >>
clean slightly cramped. Hardly ever used the balcony so probably wasted money here. Beware you are forbidden electric kettles. Pain having to climb 5 decks to Bring back coffee from the cafeteria but good exercise . Memo: next time bring dvd player and some movies. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was fairly nice, and the steward unfailingly excellent. The shower was too small to bend over and pick up the soap without getting water all over, but it was manageable. Read entire member review >>
Nice balcony; ours was 10' x 10' with four chairs & table - very nice; this is larger on deck 7 than other decks so if this is important, check carefully. The interior room, however, may be smaller but was fine for the two of us. Just around the corner from the elevators to make it convenient while also quiet. Read entire member review >>
This cabin is on the back Port side of the ship. The Caribe deck is nice as the balcony is half covered and half open. Cabin was fine, typical balcony cabin and only a few cabins from the elevator making it nice to make a quick run up in the morning to Horizon Court to grab some quick things to bring back to the room, if of course you do not use room service. We found the cabin neat, clean and everything working. Read entire member review >>
Being our first cruise, I don't have a point of comparison. The queen bed was quite comfortable which surprised me. Nice bathrobes provided were used daily. The room was not palatial, but nowhere as small as I worried it would be. Bathroom is small. No way around it. But, adequate for our needs. LOVED the balcony. Sheer bliss sitting out there reading or just 'wave watching'. Read entire member review >>
Great cabin! The balcony was covered. Princess balcony rooms are smaller than balcony rooms on other cruiselines, but the space is put to good use. We had plenty of room for our clothes and luggage. We even had a nice space for our miniature Christmas tree! The room was super quiet. We heard nothing from outside the room--no noise from the ship, no noise from other passengers; no noise from stewards' carts. The beds were so comfortable. Read entire member review >>
C753 a corner aft cabin. Our favorite location. Better view, absolute privacy and out of the wind. Some may consider the wake noisy but we think of it as a waterfall. No wake noise when balcony door is closed. Because entrance door is down short corridor there is absolute no traffic. Read entire member review >>
Nice quiet location at the aft end of the ship. There was more than enough storage space between the closets and drawers. There is a beam obstruction on the balcony, but it is off to the side and only juts out about 8 inches or so. Beautiful view from the balcony, nice and private. The bathroom was small, but sufficient with plenty of hot water in the shower. Read entire member review >>
Cabin C231 on Caribe deck is an outside balcony cabin. It has a double size balcony compared to decks below, partly covered and partly open to the sun. The cabin is normal ship size, with large storage and wardrobe space. No noise problems resulting from the location. Cabin was clean and sound, minor problems were quickly resolved by our Cabin Steward.
This cabin is well forward, and though we prefer mid ship locations, we had no complaints about location. We did not notice any disadvantage to being on the 10th floor forward. The ride was smooth and comfortable. Read entire member review >>
Cabin C752 is a corner cabin on the aft. Beautiful and large wrap around balcony. Standard inside just like all other balcony cabins. But truly an oasis in the middle of a very large ship. Read entire member review >>
Had C723 on the Caribe deck which has a larger balcony, definitely would advise if you are going to get a balcony cabin, get it on this deck. The chairs were definitely great as they were the recliner type, which were definitely nice when you are sitting there in the mornings as you are arriving in ports or grabbing a glass of wine or cocktail as the ship is leaving port. The cabin was the normal cabin for a cruise, the beds could always be more comfortable, but room was clean and always made up per usual. We did hit some rough waters on the first few days on our way to St. Thomas because of the storm that was in the Atlantic. Could definitely feel the ship move at night, mainly the first few nights of sleep were interesting, then the seas calmed down. One thing about having an aft cabin is that you felt the thrusters in the morning and at night when we were docking. In the future, I might check into getting a cabin more towards the midship to see if it would make a difference. Was on the Ruby last year and did not feel the boat move, but was in the Mediterrean which did have calmer seas. Outside of that, really didn't have any complaints.
The entertainment was alright, the Beatle Maniacs were great cover band that were spot on and both shows were great. The comedians were good and some of the street performers were good. The production shows weren't the greatest. Two out of the four shows were good, the Motor City and Boots one were ones I could have passed on, maybe they were just off on the shows that I caught. Also make sure you show up about half an hour early or you won't find a seat for the early show. Read entire member review >>
We were booked in a lower obstructive view cabin midship, but were upgraded to the
12 deck (Aloha) in A218 which was only 4 cabins from the front. Strong weather proved that this was not a good upgrade. The cabin had a nice, but small balcony. The room itself was small with not even a small couch. The shelf space was very good and even offered privacy for the ladies to change. Most disappointing was a very small round shower that your backside had a tendency to stick out. Smallest cabin that we have experienced in some time. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was on the back corner of the 11th, Baja ,floor. It had a huge balcony, and a comfortable queen bed.The bathroom was standard cruise although not as small as some. Princess ships have a hallway off the bathroom which is perfect for clothing storage. Read entire member review >>
Up on deck 14 so the balcony was smaller than on some of the lower decks, but you get a great view.We thought is was spacious compared to what we expected and the double bed was huge, although it was slightly more firm that we would have liked.Storage space was very good and we had lots of hanging space and drawers.Temperature control is easy and we were comfortable throughout the cruise.The toilet and shower was compact but worked very well. I have experienced a lot worse in hotels, so we were pleasantly surprised.The only downside was the passenger in the next cabin. He was a chain smoker and was always on the balcony puffing away. This caused us to use our own balcony less than we would have liked.I would be happy to have this cabin again on any future cruise. Read entire member review >>
We had a balcony but after so many cruises we find that it is great to go out and have breakfast or sip some wine and read a book.
When you want to be by yourself once in awhile the balcony is perfect for that.
cabin has enough room for two people and everything is conveniently located Read entire member review >>
We had a Category BB, Aft Balcony Cabin on Deck 10. This was a quiet location, with a great view, with some privacy, long walk to the front of the ship. While the noise of the wake is relaxing, it can also make it difficult to carry on a conversation on the balcony due to the noise. Lack of a breeze on the aft balcony as compared to the port or starboard sides. Read entire member review >>
Nice size room. Plenty of hangars, Love the balcony on the Caribe deck, they are larger than the rest of the the balconies(even the mini-suites!). 20 in flat-screen tv. Refrigerator. Could get two bottles of wine and about 10, .5 liters of bottled water. When opening the safe, push on the right side of the door to open easier. Read entire member review >>
The BB cabins were well appointed by unusually narrow- we aren't large & could barely maneuver in the shower. This was one of the higher categories yet one of the smallest cabins we've ever had. Clearly, when they designed this ship, they shaved an extra foot or two off the width of the cabins to squeeze more in. We had a fantail (rear facing) location- they have outside doors between balconies, which is nice- but the balconies were very small. The beds were the hardest & most uncomfortable we've ever tried to sleep on. Read entire member review >>
