Let me start by saying that this is our 5th cruise on Princess.
We had read all the negative reviews posted recently on this ship and its cruise. And quite frankly, they concerned us. But we were already booked and there was nothing we could do about it.
NONE of the horrible things those other reviews said happened to them--happened to us...NONE OF THEM.
A perfect cabin on the 12th level (midship....Aloha Deck) of the ship. No noise whatsoever from the on top or from the bottom. Never a long walk to our room. And ten steps away from the elevator when we left our room. Total privacy on the balcony as opposed to many below us that we could see directly down onto their balcony from our balcony
