Far east cruise Feb-Mar '18 from Shanghai to Singapore. Our first time with Princess.
I liked the ship and we had a good holiday, but the overall experience was not good enough to say that we will definitely sail with them again. For us it is usually the itinerary that entices us, and certainly is never based on cruise line loyalty, as we have yet to see this returned by any company.
Good and standard obstructed balcony cabin layout E607 on deck 8 (pictures attached as I hope these will help others considering choosing this category) and, being quite a new ship, all amenities worked well, though my wife reported that there were almost always cubicles out of action in the public ladies toilets.
Good and standard layout obstructed view balcony cabin E607 on deck 8. Our TA had told us we would be looking down on the lifeboat, which was technically not incorrect, but "at the same level as the handrail" would have been more accurate.
That said, having a lifeboat there was not a problem. It did not creak or bang at night and it didn't stop the sun shining in. Choose carefully if you want this price level to ideally to get a balcony in the gap between lifeboats and not with the superstructure bang in front of you. E607 is a happy medium between these two extremes.
