Upon entering the room, I immediately noticed there were small pieces of trash/paper and pistachio shells all over the carpet. No luggage mat(s) on bed(s). Walked out onto balcony and noticed patio furniture was covered in paint splatters and/or bird droppings. As we began to unpack our luggage, our room steward came in and the first words out of his mouth were, "I haven't vacuumed yet!" (while I was relieved that he hadn't vacuumed and he was apologetic about the mess, it still made me wonder what else may not have been done since the room all-clear had already been given by the cruise director). He never introduced himself, the only reason I knew his name at all was because later that night when he knocked on the door, I read his name tag aloud and asked if I was pronouncing his name correctly (either I was or he was being polite). The next day we asked that our patio furniture be either cleaned or replaced due to the unknown stains on the chairs, but our room steward advised that the stains were permanent (not bird droppings, but unremovable paint/other substance) and there were no replacement chairs available. We didn't spend too much time on our balcony this trip (for other reasons outside the ship's control, e.g. loud neighbors regularly playing card games on their balcony, someone on a nearby balcony above ours that insisted on cutting their fingernails and/or toenails outside on an almost daily basis, etc.), so the stained furniture ended up not being a huge issue but definitely not ideal. On one of the few afternoons that we did sit on the balcony, I saw what appeared to be a dried chicken/animal bone (perhaps from a chicken wing) just under the balcony railing. I wasn't about to touch it so can't say for sure, but again, not ideal. Mattresses seemed worn; way too soft for our taste and no support. Flat sheets were used in place of fitted bottom sheets so everything came untucked quickly every evening and (if you move at all while sleeping) became wrinkled and bunched uncomfortably while sleeping. Pillows were feather (or down alternative) and offered no support whatsoever. We didn't get a good night's sleep any night of the cruise. On a positive note, the mattresses, pillows, and linens on Princess ships will give you a newfound appreciation for your own bedding at home! There were rusty screws hanging out of the cabinet facing around the refrigerator; I tightened them by hand so as to not snag our clothes or legs (it's one thing to get Montezuma's Revenge while in Mexico but I didn't want tetanus too!). Room steward was efficient throughout the cruise; other than the patio furniture, we made no special requests but he cleaned our room well every day and supplied us with plenty of towels and ice. Space in shower and bathroom is serviceable and comparable to other ships (i.e. not large). Plenty of hangers in closet/wardrobe area and lots of shelving for folded clothing. TV was tiny, not many choices, remote worked only intermittently or only if standing right in front of TV (and battery cover was sloppily taped on), and no on demand or PPV options (I realize this is tricky while at sea/depending on satellite reception, etc.). Room slept hot every night, air conditioning (if you can even call it that) basically non-existent; no specific temperature control in room (only "warmer/cooler" adjustments could be made, but even on the lowest "cooler" setting, room was stuffy and warm at all times).

The room, configured with two twin beds and an upper bunk, was very comfortable for three people. It did become difficult to maneuver around the ladder to the upper bunk, but we stowed it behind the cabin curtain when not in use. The cabin was also pretty quiet except for the occasional door slamming shut from a neighboring room. The bathroom is fine but pretty dimly lit -- there are only two light bulbs near the mirror, leaving the shower in permanent darkness. Storage was OK for three people, although I don't understand why the closet didn't have doors. Read Less

Cabin was smallish, closet was the smallest we have seen. More like a 7 day cruise size but we were able to sqize our stuff in. The room was very clean the bed was very comfortable and the noise was very low. Not much of anything could be heard. We were in the aft center of the ship. Baja deck. Great views, very little movement.. the ship had some heavy seas but hell its Alaska seas. The views of Tracy Arm was excellent. Our steward was world class and helped us out on several user error problems. Overall I would get this cabin again. Read Less

Great Alaskan Cruise : Cabin A301
We were on a waiting list for an handicapped cabin and it made my cruise much easier. Shower was a godsend and we had enough room to maneuver around.

We had a Premium Balcony which was nice for the extra balcony space to move around and having a full sized table where you could have breakfast in the morning. Our stateroom was kept spotless. The new beds are excellent.
