Cabin: Mini-Suite with Balcony

THANK YOU Princess for enforcing vaccinations, distancing and wearing masks! While others complained in their reviews about "medical terrorism", I hope they will never have to go through COVID-19 illness and find out the reason why we prevent in the first place (we have, and we don't want it again).

Basically everyone was compliant (crew 99%, passengers 95%), and not grudgingly - of course you had to be vaccinated to go on this cruise, so low chance of "anti-everything" people on board.

The staff did a terrific job with great service all around and we thoroughly enjoyed cruising again. Wearing masks is no big deal to us as we do the same at home. Any maintenance issue was promptly resolved. The buffet was smooth while getting served (however ship only 1/3 full, so it may be a problem if fully booked).

Cabin Review

Mini-Suite with Balcony

Bed large and comfortable. Bathroom nice (the bathtub is very narrow, good for kids and skinny people only).

Balcony uncovered unfortunately (no privacy - all upper levels look down on your balcony ..), we didn't know ahead of time.

Mini suites are quite large with ample space, 2 TVs (if you don't stand in front of the TV, both react to remote control commands). Super uncomfortable sofa (ordered blanket to arrange as cushions). Plenty of storage.
