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.
Cabin, small and not suitable for wheel chair but with help from cabin steward we made do. Designers of ships really need to consider the bulk of their passengers are aging and getting frail. Beds were bent but mattresses were new immediately prior to the cruise (allegedly).
Balcony was small but serviceable and made up for the lack of space in the cabin with the door open. Lighting is a little poor but serviceable, decor is dated and faded, and the mini-bar fridge is wasted space as there is no ice, nor drinks, nor places to acquire or purchase drinks etc. to put in the fridge.

This was our first cruise.
Jeffrey, our cabin crew staff member was an absolute credit to your cruise ship.
He was polite and helpful, he kept our cabin clean and refreshed without being asked, his sense of humour infectious, he was courteous at all times. Jeffrey is an asset.
The waiting staff for Traditional dining in Canaletto Table 262 (Mars and Brian) were excellent, no complaints there, and for breakfast we were well looked after by Andriy and Ganna on Table 107 in the Donatello dining room. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was comfortable and loved walk in robe however the lack of a seatee as we have had on other ships was a downside. TV was however old and had limited programming. Bathroom was typical tho of lower quality than we had found on other ships Read entire member review >>
Our cabin C705 was located on deck 10 just across from the aft lifts. It was perfect for us handy to everything. It had a comfy bed was clean and fairly roomy. Our balcony was larger than our friends who had a mini suite on deck 9 and large than the balcony on 11 and 12. we had half covered area and half open it was a bit more private than 9 as we looked straight down to theirs. ( not that we used it very much but probably would of if travelling alone) Read entire member review >>
We had 3 Balcony Cabins in a row on the Odd Side Aft of the Caribe Deck (deck 10)Room C739, C743, C735. It was at the very end of the ship, last three cabins.They were lovely and quiet! Read entire member review >>
Not quite clean room, stains on walls and bed skirts. Bed were so hard, might as well sleep on the floor, pillows, little puffs of nothing, most likely because they seemed rather old. Carpet was grungy, dirt streaks from shoes. Balcony chairs were filthy covered with paint chips. Glass on balcony was dirty, not just watermarks, filthy dirty (although they did finally clean them while docked in Skagway). OVerall the room was in sore need of refurbishing/update.

Big balcony but you can be seen by people on decks above you so no nudity! Smallish cabin and tiny bathroom and tiny shower (no tub). Mid-hallway between elevators so relatively quiet area. Read entire member review >>
Great spot! Big closet with plenty of hangers, bathroom small but was still very adequate. Water in shower was hot and had nice water pressure. Quiet location...not near elevators.....yet was still convenient as it was just slightly aft of the middle of the ship. Nice big balcony (paid extra to be on the Caribe deck to get this feature....well worth it!). Read entire member review >>
Great cabin. Loved the balcony. Wonderful big closet - we loved the open closet and the large number of hangers. Also, plenty of shelf space. A small sofa would be nice. Good location near the middle of the ship. Very quiet. Great bed Read entire member review >>
Cabin A243 on the starboard side, Aloha Deck (deck 12) forward was comfortable and very quiet. Small bathroom and shower, but plenty of storage. Asked for a pillow top to be added to the bed which made it quite comfortable. Very convenient to the Lido deck which was the next deck up and the fitness center which was two decks up. The balcony is small but offers a great view. Not a busy hallway. Read entire member review >>
B305. The bathroom is just too small. The shower stall is just ridicuouly small. The closet area is a nice size. They should have turned the closed closet shelving around into the hanging space and extended the bathroom shower. I would have preferred the larger balcony on the Caribe deck, but this was fine. If the price was right I would get a mini suite next time just for more room. Wish the little desk was closer to the batroom. Read entire member review >>
Cabin B-334 is great and balcony is very nice. It is completely covered and no one can look down at you. As the other balcony's are open and we could look down at them. It was a good location to the elevators. Lots of closet space. Read entire member review >>
It was in a nice quiet location....not next to an elevator...more aft on the ship. We had a balcony which our steward opened the door between our balcony and our other family's balcony. The cabin was a bit tiny but there was plenty of space to store things. The Refrigerator kept things cold. Read entire member review >>
Cabin Aloha A743.
We felt the closet was plenty big enough for all of our clothes even with our luggage and my camera gear stowed there. The bathroom of course was small, no way two people could share it. But the room was cozy and comfortable, clean and the fellow taking care of it was very attentive and always seemed to be just outside our door. The balcony on the Aloha deck is small but plenty big enough for the two of us to sit comfortably. We could see down on multiple balconies below us, but folks couldn't look down on us. The buffet's are right above Aloha deck so we had a "roof" over us. The nice thing about our room is that it's on the back right of the ship (last room on the right). Just a few steps up one deck to the buffets. Read entire member review >>
Aloha 314 Room has a smaller balcony, but is completely covered. This is a good feature for those times when it might be raining and would make the balcony unusable. Room seems to have been right under the Horizon Court deck area. Lots of chair scraping noises throughout the day and evening. Close enough to elevator banks to get around. Next cruise our room choice would be mid-ship, mid-deck. Read entire member review >>
Small but efficient bathroom. New carpet and balcony mat. Excellent flat screen tv in each cabin but still not interactive. Beds were comfortable. Heating and air worked perfectly. Very satisfied overall. Read entire member review >>
Balcony Cabins on Princess are very small. If you have more then 2 people try and get a mini. We had no storage space and for 15 days it was a mess. Bathroom was tiny. Balcony small not as pictured on brochure. Not even a couch. Chair, small table, horrible beds, dirty furniture...Just a big dissapointment from Princess. They were my favorite until this cruise.
