Oceanview (obstructed view) (OV) Cabin Reviews

It was a nice cabin. Typical of the line, small, but functional. The shower is TINY, and the assistance bar is right in the middle of the back wall, which blocks 4-5 inches of space you could use to get showered without getting tangled in the shower curtain. The room had an obstructed view (lifeboat), but I could see the ocean and I consistently opened my curtains to let the light in. The steward was attentive, friendly and helpful. The Chocolates, unfortunately were all mint chocolate, which I don't like mint, so that's unfortunate. Plenty of room for hanging clothes and drawer space for folder clothing. It would be nice if the AC could take the room a little cooler as I tend to run warm. I'm glad I wasn't in the 600-612 rooms as they were right over, what sounded like the engines and it was a loud buzzing sound accompanied by a very noticeable vibration. Read Less

The cabin was so small it had no chairs in which to sit. If you wanted to read a book or watch tv you had to sit up in bed - which is murder on your back. It had the usual small round table whose only discernible purpose was as a tripping hazard since there were no chairs to place beside it and no space to place such chairs if same had been available.

The rooms carpet was old, but the REAL problem was the horrific smell that permeated from the hallway in to the room. We had to leave often it got SO BAD. This was reported, but not resolved. We were told it was "gray" matter ... Read More
The rooms carpet was old, but the REAL problem was the horrific smell that permeated from the hallway in to the room. We had to leave often it got SO BAD. This was reported, but not resolved. We were told it was "gray" matter from the engine room. Others on the ship were complaining also. Also, there was a distinct sewage smell in the elevators at times. Read Less

Sight seeing. : Cabin E525
Very small bath room. No shower cap, hand lotion, etc. It was like a motel room. No complementary water in the room. No drinking water in any floor.

The cabin was clean and well-appointed, but excessively noisy. The noise was frequent and loud enough to keep us from getting to sleep easily and to wake us up when asleep. We know that the people in the neighboring cabin, #314 had a similar experience and also complained. This was easily our 50th cruise on a variety of cruise lines...and we have never experienced such noise in a cabin. Read Less

We booked an Obstructed Ocean View Guarantee. The ship sold out and we ended up in an Obstructed Ocean View cabin. At least there was some natural light. Our first impression was that the cabin was someone's very big closet (remember this was our first cruise). We adapted. We were the cabin closest to the Internet Cafe and Atrium but only noticed noise when the door was open. Even foot traffic was not invasive. One minor irritant was our steward's insistence that he be allowed to enter the room and make it up before 11 AM, even when we had the do not disturb sign hanging up. If that is Princess policy, they need to change their policy. Our cabin. We get to dictate if and when employees enter. Not them. We don't always need our cabin made up every day. Of course we could have used more room in the "closet" but I guess minimal room for our two suitcases is pretty much standard in the cruise industry. Read Less

Our cabin was nice. I appreciate that the 3rd and 4th bunks were in the ceiling so they weren't in the way during the day. The shower floor was cracked a bit but other than that we had no trouble
