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.
The cabin was well laid out, and yes the bathroom was small, and yes the cabin is dated, and its lived in, but overall it was well maintained by our steward and was comfortable. The balcony was something of a disappointment, but purely because of the cabins position on the ship - it was impossible to lie in bed and see anything other than the wall of the balcony - which given that stunning scenery surrounded us constantly would have been great to be able to see something.

Beds are comfy, shower small, but really good water flow. Balcony chairs not too comfortable, that would be my only complaint I think. Liked how it was totally covered. Steward did a great job. We liked the location. Read entire member review >>
Bedding was used and soiled when we arrived. Our room steward changed the bedding upon request. Trash on the floor, hair, old food, baby crackers and previous passenger's personal information left in the room. Air Conditioning was turned off for a couple of days, so very hot. Lacquer Finish was pumping into the room through the Air Conditioning system for a couple of days, so nausea and headaches. Room steward was very nice though. Read entire member review >>
Found the bathroom/closet area smaller than anticipated. Appreciated the safe and the closet space itself was roomy. Beds were relatively comfortable and enjoyed getting Fox News all away across. Adored our room steward Mychelle. Read entire member review >>
We had the mini suite which we thought a good investment for a 15 day cruise. Turns out we needed the extra room. We really enjoyed having coffee on the balcony! We had plenty of closet space and even a bathtub!
We had new carpet and the room was kept immaculately!! Thanks Elmer! We love how Princess has a traditional turn down service complete with chocolates!
Beds need to be updated as well as the pillows, Read entire member review >>
Cabin was clean and comfortable, could have used a bigger closet. Balcony was average sized, but big enough for two people. Bathroom clean and functional. Linens replaced daily by cabin steward, Extra items quickly given upon request. Room was well cleaned seemingly every time we left the cabin. Read entire member review >>
This cabin has an extra large balcony, and as we was traveling with family, we were able to open the door between balconies and make our living space larger. The cabin was kept clean and was more than adequate for our needs. Read entire member review >>
We had a balcony cabin and found it to be adequate in every respect, but smaller than balcony cabins on Celebrity and Holland America. You have to upgrade to a mini-suite on Princess to get a "standard" size balcony. The balcony itself was adequate, as was the bathroom. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was all the way aft on the Caribe deck. There was an extra little area on the balcony but not used. The balcony furniture was adequate but the balcony was rather unappealing as described above. The room was average with a couple of malfunctions that were quickly remedied. Not a great room choice for an unstable ship.
the curtains blocked out the light very well
furniture was in good condition
bed was ok but could have been softer, pillow top was added to make it more comfortable
tv worked well with a nice clear picture
plenty of drawers and shelves for storage
closet is about half the size of the other Grand and Crown class ships but definitely adequate
bathroom tiles and sink were in good condition
air conditioning system worked well
no noisy fans but could feel the walls shake from slamming doors of surrounding cabins Read entire member review >>
Cabin attendant was very helpful and kelp our cabin clean. He was a really hard working young man. He was very, very attentive to our needs. He respected our privacy and learned our names right away. (this is a big deal for us). Martin is a keeper for sure. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was nicer than we expected, although the bathroom counter and shower curtain left a lot to be desired - very cheesy (especially compared to the Celebrity Silhouette). The balcony was quite large - they took some space from the cabin to enlarge the balconies. The bed linens and towels were very nice and you can request an egg crate and featherbed to soften the otherwise hard mattress which does not have a boxspring. Read entire member review >>
Good location for us. Like the Caribe balcony best. Fairly quiet as it was near the stern. Queen bed, usual cabin amenities. Smaller than what we expected closet. The safe will not fit an Ipad either. Overall, we managed to find spaces for our clothes, but the shelves are narrower that what we had expected.The Grand needs renovations and seeing our cabin, it too needs sprucing up (carpet, lamp bases are scratched extensively) Being experienced cruisers we noticed these areas that could be better maintained.

Great location, larger balcony where one can be in the sun or under shelter is a great option and worth the expense. Comfortable bed with a mattress topper and a smallish closet but for a week we did not have any inconveniences in that regard. Read entire member review >>
Tired and worn out. Small. moldy shower. Old furniture, worn out carpet. Bedding is worn and stained, comforter had holes it, same with sheets. Steward was only true plus for the cabin. Read entire member review >>
Adjacent to elevators and stairs, but no noise; cabin could use more closet and storage space; plenty of shelf space in bathroom; balcony is totally covered; lots of rust and stains on balcony floor which is an ugly blue metal surface. Princess needs to install floor covering here to make it more appealing. Bedding was hard but covered with an "egg crate". Read entire member review >>
C641 near crews storage area. Larger balcony than those on decks 9,11,12. Half of balcony covered. People on balconies above could look down on us and we could look down on those below us.We could hear gears grinding as they were lowering the lifeboats used for tendering.

We were happy with our cabin. It was forward but on rough days it was still comfortable. Plenty of storage. Just a desk chair and a lounge chair. Convenient to the elevators. You could walk the length of the ship and exit aft for the aft pool or go up 3 floors to the Spa pool. The room was quiet. Read entire member review >>
B737 The balconies on this deeck are slightly smaller & overlook those below.
For us Baha deck was great as we use the stairs all the time to try & offset the extra food & booze. It's two decks up to Horizon court & the decks & four decks to the central area Read entire member review >>
Deck 14 cabin L254. Balcony cabin not overlooked but can look down on others. No settee but quite spacious, with good closet and shelves. The shower room was larger than some I have had. Very quiet, close to elevators and door through to the deck area. Read entire member review >>
The cabin did need either the carpet shampooed or replaced.
The location was near lifts but quite.
Small balcony but adequate but chairs covered in paint
Ample cloths space but closet needed doors on it
No tea/coffee making facilities in cabin Read entire member review >>
Our cabin (C108) was a fair location at the front of the ship on the Port side on the 10th deck (Caribe). The location was fine but you can feel heavier seas from this location. The cabin was old and needed renovation. The shower had some mold stains. The balcony was dirty and grimy but the view as fine. Read entire member review >>
We were in cabin A710 which was on deck 12 and in the back. The balcony was completely covered, but smaller then some of the other balconys. On the plus side, it was very close to one of the rear swimming pools which often was a quite place to go. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was comfortable and offered plenty of space with no noise disturbance from the cabins either side or from the hallway. The balcony offers more than enough room for the two chairs and table provided and always felt private. Most importantly, the bed was very comfortable! Read entire member review >>
Cabin B708 - across from the laundry so very convenient when you want to throw in the quick load. After the last set of elevators, so fairly quiet. Love the location. Smaller than the same cabin on the Crown, but totally adequate. Covered balcony. Read entire member review >>
