This will be short and to the point. I love Princess. I am a Princess Cheerleader. We received our Platinum pins on this cruise. I reached deep into my pockets and took my daughter, my son in law and grandchild on this cruise, hoping to make them Princess lovers, Keep the new loyalists coming home to Princess.
The Good. Getting on the ship and getting off of the ship was flawless. Princess should give lessons to other cruise lines on how to do it quickly and effortlessly. A+
The Staff. The Cabin Steward. The Wait staff in Buffet, MDR, Alfredos, IC....as nice as ever which is pretty nice. A+
Cabin E409 was sold as an obstructed cabin. I was worried when booking it as information on a new ship was scarce. So I am writing a review for those who have booked it.
You lucked out big time. The cabin has a small loveseat, a great 40 inch TV, the shower now has a barrier to water flooding the floor....storage space is fine. You have lost two drawers on the desk..but the storage space by the RR is way big. Ditto two drawers in bedside tables.
It was very clean. No signs of wear and tear. Very quiet. Cabin steward was excellent. The bed was good. We slept like logs. Two elevators were close. The Aft and the Main . We did not miss the Mid ship stairs. Seldom saw anyone on our deck.
The Balcony. Wow. Long. Wide. Two nice chairs. Nice Table. Walking around space for FIVE people. Me. Husband. Daughter. Son in Law. Grandchild. at Sail away.
View.............fantastic. If it is obstructed...give me obstructed every time.
Privacy.. when standing at the rail.....people above can see you. when sitting and looking out...Nope. No one looking at you.
MARK my words. These "jut" cabins..will be sold at a much higher price once Princess realizes how great they are.......................
