Amazing scenic alaska By: onstage
This was the first cabin on the Aloha Deck at the front of the ship. This gave us a nice open view to the front of the ship, but also allowed the captain and crew to see us on our balcony, so wasn't quite as private as I had hoped. Bed was hard as a rock; I like a firm mattress but this was not comfortable. Shower was so tiny that I bruised my elbows trying to shampoo my hair, can't imagine what it would be like for a taller or heavier person.

Panamacanal -full passage By: Cruise4ever68
Our Cabin C404 was nice, but not clean. We found leftovers from passengers in the drawers and in the bathroom ( used Q-tips!) and the balcony was really ugly with food in the tiles on the floor. As other passengers wrote before, the bathroom and shower are small and a shower curtain is nothing anyone likes these days. The aircondition blew on one side of the bed, but we used a small towel to block that corner of the air outlet and then it was fine. The balcony is double the size of other balconies on other decks and it is half covered from above, which is nice, you have a little privacy. There almost no power outlets in the cabin, especially for european plugs.

This cabin was very nice. It was convenient to the elevator which only went to the 7th deck so we always had to walk to the next set of elevators to go to the dining room. It was great for the Promenade deck and Theater though.

We had a platform hanging the made impossibleible to take pictures from the balcony yet they claimed and charged us for an unobstructed view. When we asked they were rude. Cabin was very tired

"Premium balcony" was true - balcony probably x2 the size of the one last year. Room was small but okay. Very clean. No obvious defects. Plumbing and AC worded fine. Shower microscopic like all Princess non-suites. Enough room for our clothes and to store all our bags.

Cabin B420

This is a balcony room that is mid ships and juts out a bit. It was the perfect place to spend the day as we went through the Panama Canal. We ordered breakfast in the room and it arrived on time. It was the ultimate excursion, not having to move at all and having the conveniences of the room available at all times. Everything in the cabin worked fine. I love this grade of cabin. Close to the stairs/elevators and being mid ships means no real long walks to get anywhere on the ship.

The cabin was small, but adequate. Having a balcony helped --as the weather was nice, we used it often. The bathroom was very tight, and the shower almost impossble to use. Unless one was very thin and short, it was very, very cramped.

Clean, comfortable, Shower was unreasonably small and tight (I am 5'10 180) Balcony was WELL worth it. Great cabin Steward named Imran. Nice to be up that high. Beds were very comfortable. Decent sized bathroom, good storage space. Intermittent TV while at sea. Good to have a room safe.

Bitten by the Cruise Bug By: bitacruising
We had a great cabin, C502. No noise coming from outside at all and was close to elevators and stairs. Felt like we had plenty of space. View of glaciers was great since it was on starboard side on SB cruise

Our fears of being right under the Horizon Court were unfounded. No noise from above whatsoever. In fact we were ideally located to fetch breakfast or anything else for that matter and return to our cabin in under a minute.

Large balcony. Lots of storage and lots of extra hangers. Did not like the "bump out" which blocked our view to the front of the ship.

Smooth Sailing cruise By: Barb the travel lady
The shower was so tiny that if you dropped the soap part of you was outside the shower area. Water pressure and shower head were wonderful. Air exchange was excellent. Nice balcony with 4 chairs and a table. Chair framing needed help as the finish was corroding. Wood railings in all the rooms around us had varnish peeling.

The Perfect Cruise By: msoneday
Like I said earlier, we were extremely impressed with the cleanliness and new appearance of our room. No wear and tear anywhere. We were expecting a queen size bed in our balcony stateroom, but there is no doubt it was a king. My husband is 6' 4" and he and I fit fine with room to spare. The bathroom had a sink, toilet and shower all nicely fitting in a very small area. Twice a day the trash was emptied, fresh towels put in the room, and the bed straightened. The closet had ample room for both sets of clothes, our suitcases and shoes. We found the room comfortable and roomy enough with a desk, tv, refrig and small table. The air conditioner controls are in the room and adjustable, and we stayed plenty cold or cool and comfortable. The balcony was a nice size with two chairs and a table and partitions for privacy. I understand that the partitions can be folded/removed if you want to share with your neighbor or relative. Our room was right next to the stairs and elevators, and we were pleasantly surprised at how quiet our room was. Occasionally we heard a door slam, and we could hear our neighbors on their balcony if we had our door open, but we experienced no problems with noise.

Cabin C531
Mar 2009
Typical cabin with queen bed. Sufficient storage and closet space for all clothes, and storage of luggage under bed. Bathroom shower is exceptionally small but is typical of all Princess rooms that are not minisuites or suites. Balcony on Caribe deck is twice as large as on other decks; easily fits four chairs and a table large enough to eat breakfast on. The balcony is half covered and half open to the decks above. Great midship location, close to midship stairs and elevators.

If you can swing it go with a balcony, or mini-suite (tub) included ! Midship is a smoother ride, bow is rougher, stern is noiser

Good sized balcony but with a somewhat restricted view fore and aft. The balcony tended to be very hot in the afternoons. a higher stateroom would have had more shade. The shower was tiny. Good storage.

Family Alaska Cruise By: katisdale
Our accessible cabin was safe for me given my limitations. The bath had lots of grab bars which I greatly appreciated. The shower has a seat. There is sufficient room to store a scooter in the room. The bathroom floor does get wet when you use the shower. The shower can be hand held.
