Cabin A614
Aug 2017
A Great Cruise By: jaystuart
Our room had a standard balcony. It was plenty big for my wife and me. We could sit outside and enjoy the view or just read or relax. Two lounge chairs, a table and some space to move about was just right. I thought we settled for a queen bed but got a king instead. Bathroom facilities worked fine once I figured out how to get hot water out of the shower!

Old and tired By: crackerbit
The Cabin, as is the rest of the ship has seen better days. The main problem was the mattress. The hump in the center running top to bottom was clearly visible. Both sides sloped down to the edge. When the staff were made aware of this, the mattress was replaced with one that wasn't as bad, but still bad. The padded headboard, with mirror, has stains from where people have rested their heads. The carpet is brighter in color at the edges and in places coming away. The sheers are dirty where people open them, there's no pole to use, and the shower has mold growing in the seams. The grout on the floor and around the sink is dirty too. The sheets were nice however. The chairs on the balcony were chipped and shabby looking, put it this way, I wouldn't have bought them in a yard sale.

WHAT A GREAT SAIL! By: Sailing Ellie
Our cabin was pretty standard but clean and inviting. We had a balcony with curtains and drapes we could open wide to let the view of the sea and sky and we like to keep them that way during the day. Sometime we would stay on our balcony soaking up the streaming sun and breathing the fresh ocean air.

Great cabin, and our cabin steward Renato always kept our cabin in impeccable manner. He is very attentive to our needs and always cordial, smiling, and just pleasant to converse with. I give him a rating of 10.

Thanks Princess! By: LreedCA
The cabin was as expected as far as size and layout, but it definitely needed some detailed cleaning and repair. There were signs of mold in the shower that was covered up with caulking and the shower curtain was in desperate need of replacing, as it had orange mold all along the bottom of the curtain. The first night we were kept awake by a balcony door that was in disrepair. That was corrected the next day. The shower temperature was never right. We had maintenance come twice to fix it, but had to settle for luke warm water the entire cruse. There was no adjusting the temperature at all. The bed was comfortable and the location was perfect. It was always quiet due to respectful neighbors. Again, hopefully during dry dock, these things will be taken care of.

room was smaller than I imagined. Service was exemplary in so many ways; timeliness, friendly, personable, clean. Teofilo, our steward, was excellent!

First Time Cruiser By: piratequeen2
Loved having a balcony. Room was small but we had plenty of places for our things. Take something to hang on the towel rack for your personal items as there is not much room to store things. We took extra hangers. They do supply you with some but we hung most of our clothes.

Very clean and comfortable temperature. I use a CPAT machine for sleeping and they had a gallon jug of distilled water that I had requested on my personal profile waiting for me when we unpacked.

A Very Mellow Cruise By: renee_t
The bathroom is surprisingly spacious. There were 3 decent-sized shelves above the sink area to store toiletries and a big shelf below the sink. The shower is pretty tiny though, and there isn't much shelf space, so you'd be smart to go to and buy their cruise accessories to help with this problem. Upgrade to a balcony cabin if it's at all possible in your budget. Our balcony was great, and included two deck chairs and a small table. It was very nice to be able to go outside. The room itself included a queen-sized bed. The linens were of a very high thread count and were very comfortable. The duvet was fairly thin. You may wish to ask for more blankets. There were 2 night stands with lamps, a good-sized desk with chair, an occasional chair, and "entertainment area" including a small built-in refrigerator and small flat-screen TV. The dressing area includes a 4' wide closet with plenty of hangers, and an 18" wide by 7' tall shelf unit that includes a small safe.

Cabin A335
Jul 2015
Our balcony cabin was gorgeous! Our steward, Cesar, was fabulous. The only thing was that being on the Aloha deck midship, there was a pool deck I think above us and every evening we could hear them dragging the chaise lounges around. We could also hear kids running on deck. We were on the Land side which I would recommend if possible for Alaska.

Cabin A402
Apr 2015
Smaller than some we have had on other cruise lines. Bathroom was very small and in need of updating. Floor tile was worn & cracked. Vanity was worn. Vacuum toilet malfunctioned three times in two weeks - reset itself once and fixed by technician twice (quick response). Cabin is below Lido deck entertainment area - frequent night-time noise of equipment being dragged across deck above. Interior walls creak often during night and moderately rough water.

NOT SO GRAND By: mnoga@cruisecritic1
It was ok, but tired and colorless.

Cabin B339
Nov 2012
B339 Standard balcony room. Smaller wardrobe hanging space than Ruby or Emerald. On our sailing, prone to knocking, banging and eventually loud clanging noises due to a dislodged pipe. Shower had more shoulder space than Ruby or Emerald as it is set in the corner. Nowhere near any launderettes or creaky stairwells. If they sort out the plumbing the the cabin location is fine. The balcony does not have any matting to raise you up from any rainwater. This can be slippy. This applies to all staterooms.

Grand Princess 12/17/11 By: zookeeper17
We liked this cabin. Quiet and close to exit by the aft pool. We never heard anything from the Lido deck. The beds could be more comfortably. We did sometimes get some vibration while at higher speeds. And the balcony is covered so we could sit on it while it was raining, though we never got any sun on it.

Cabin C-222
Nov 2011
C-222 No problems. On the port side so those travelling west enjoy the day sun. Those travelling north enjoy sunsets. Balconies on the top section are staggered in wedding cake fashion. Those in cabins above can look directly down onto your balconey.

A739 and A743 - aft cabins. Great location, but rather noisy from the creaking movement of the ship.

Great mate By: kangarooer
Great balcony, quiet room bathroom bigger than some other Princess ships. Did not like mini bar as drinks were missing and it was my responsibility. If you want drinks order them

Other Princess ships seem to have smaller bathrooms and bigger closets. A742 was perfect location for us.

Cabin B433
Dec 2009
Cabin B433 although sold as a BC category was terrible. It was designed for a room with children with bunk beds that drop from the ceiling. No night stands or night or night stand lamps. Closet area is about 4.5 feet long. There are 5 rooms adjacent to the elevators on both side of the ship that are the same. Princess sells them for full BC Category Price but they are far below the level of their normal BC Category Rooms.

Distroyed suitcase By: snowbirdsatlast
Cabin was a good size (I had room to do my daily exercises)with a balcony however it was not very clean, shower had black mould, hair dryer was so dirty I didn't want to touch it I was glad I brought my exercise mat because I would not have laid on the floor to do my exercises without the mat. Desk had a sticky dirt all around the edges. Water dripped off the balcony above us so had to make sure it didn't land in our coffee.

Cabin adequate for three to four persons. Ample storage space ideally situated for stairs and lifts and access to remainder of ship.
