Cabin: Mini-Suite with Balcony

Overall, we had a good time and do like Princess. This was our third Princess cruise, and we're booked for another in January.

Embarkation was swift and efficient ' in fact, maybe too much so for our steward! He seemed shocked when we entered our room as he was still getting it ready. We went for lunch, and all was good when we returned. My suitcase arrived shortly thereafter, but alarm bells were ringing when my husband's hadn't turned up by dinner. Thankfully, it was there when we returned afterwards.

For the Mediterranean Medley, we were in a mini-suite (D228, I have a video up on YouTube of it), which has probably ruined me for anything less. There was plenty of space, good storage, and a big bathroom (with a shower over bath). It had a balcony, but unfortunately with mini-suites on Dolphin deck, there is no privacy as they're all overlooked. No wandering out in your nightie! No matter, though ' it was either too wet or too chilly most of the time to use it.

Cabin Review

Mini-Suite with Balcony

Cabin MB

Mini-suite D228 was very comfortable, with plenty of storage and a good-sized bathroom with a shower over bath.It contained a big desk with lots of drawers, and the living area had a large sofa.The room had two TVs - one faced the bed, the other faced the sofa.It had a balcony, but it was overlooked by all above it.
