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.
Dated carpet and bath tiles. Bath area had many stains on walls both in and outside of the shower. TV monitors are so dated they malfunction often and the remotes are so worn you have trouble knowing what you are pressing, lol. Read entire member review >>
The cabins on the Grand tend to be smaller than other ships I've travelled on. However, our room had the perfect Princess Bed and a good balcony without the problem of people looking down on us. No noises from the ship or activities above or below us. Our room steward was the best yet. He kept our room tiptop.... Everything in the room functioned perfectly..... Read entire member review >>
Comfortable beds, balcony on the small side but satisfactory. Television system antiquated. Cabin was towards the aft end of the ship and the pulsing from the engine could be "felt" even when lying in bed; it wasn't predominant and didn't stop us sleeping well. Read entire member review >>
Don't take a cruise to stay in the room. It was big enough, much roomier than our RV. Balcony is small, room for 2 chairs and table. TV is terrible. New mattress, now includes sheet and duvet. The shower has a shampoo and body wash dispenser but couldn't see which was which, and I'm picky so I bring my own. Read entire member review >>
I like our cabin. The size is just right, it's not big it's not small. I enjoy the balcony especially when I woke up in the morning I can see right away if we are getting close to the port or already there. It brightens our room. Read entire member review >>
Typical Princess Cruises cabin. Not too big, not too small. We did put our suitcases under the beds. Beeing on the top floor we feel the motion of the ship. But better view especially during the cruising at Glacier Bay. Good thing I read some reviews for the robes. They do not give them automatically. Rico our cabin steward did outstanding job in taking care of our cabin. He did deserved extra tip. Read entire member review >>
I am used to a mini-suite but chose the cabin with balcony since I was cruising alone. I found the decor dated and the same as when I cruised the previous times on Grand back to 3 years ago. I found the cabin to be bumpier being more forward than I am used to. Read entire member review >>
Spacious balcony easily accommodated 5 of us. One bed was very uncomfortable on the first night but when we told our cabin steward he returned with a brand new mattress which was quite acceptable Read entire member review >>
The mattress is terrible and the pad our room stewart added didn't make an improvement. Mold in the shower, bathroom vent is full of dust YUCK!! Rooms above and below so pretty quiet, but couldn't sleep on the junk mattress! Read entire member review >>
Very small closet compared to other balcony rooms on Princess. Not enough room for all of our clothes, jackets, shoes etc. We brought extra jackets and warm clothes for Alaska and shore excursions.I also gave a poor rating for fitness only because 200+ passengers show up for the Zumba class that will accomodate about 40 people. It was impossible to get a workout crammed so close togeter. Passengers were trying to exercise all over the room on carpet, between tables of the Vista Lounge. This cannot be the only time this has happened. As a matter of fact I talked to Zumba instructor after class. If Zumba is so popular and passengers obviously want a fun workout during their cruise, why not offer it a few times per day since there is not a venue with enough space on the ship??? I would have even paid for the class to just had a chance for a real workout. The gym is available but also very crowded. What does that tell the cruiseline?? Some Passengers like a little exercise to continue with their normal routine even during vacation. After all, everyone wants dessert on vacation right?? Read entire member review >>
Very small closet for a 49 day multi climate zone cruise. Excellent location and views into the bridge. Balcony was private and nice for two people. Starboard was perfect for the cruise around South America from Ft. Lauderdale. Strange water sounds in bathroom, but quiet outside. Sink seemed larger than in the past. Cupboard shelves were extremely small and much smaller than on previous ships. Some noise from people running on the 15th deck above. Read entire member review >>
We found the room to be quite quiet. It is above the Princess theatre, so if you go to bed early that may be a concern. We never got to bed that early so we didn't have any issues with noise. The balcony is fine. The promenade deck does pass in front, but at a lower level and the balcony glass is mirrored so no one can see in. At dusk, that portion of the promenade is closed off.

C753. Fabulous cabin as nobody walks passed it, but every morning around 4:00 you can really hear the engines on the ship start up while the ship prepares to dock. Shakes the bed and woke me up every morning for over an hour. Read entire member review >>
Dirty and moldy cabin...worst bed ever and was probably used by the Margui de Sade. Smallest cabin ever...smallest balcony EVER...3 feet by 8 feet. We asked our Steward 3 times for a robe....never got one. Read entire member review >>
