We chose a back to back cruise to celebrate our birthdays. The first 12 nights we were Club Balcony and the second 17 nights on Princess Grills. I will talk about dining later.
The Club Balcony we chose was on deck 7 with an extended very large curved balcony, the stateroom is similar to most other balcony cabins but at an increased cost due to the Club Dining. Most Club Balconies offered are on Deck 8 and having taken one of those on a previous cruise I can only say never again, very noisy with very early morning cleaning on the deck above and late evening pool repairs. Upon arrival we were not greeted by a cabin steward until late in the second day when we were told there would be no stateroom turndown service, in fact our steward came to to service our room from another area of the ship.
The Princess Grills suite we chose was midships on deck 6 and was a very average stateroom, the bath had what appeared to be black mould in the tiles and it was very difficult to shower under the fixed shower head. I much preferred the Deluxe Balcony on P&O Iona which had a very large walk in shower. We did get a turndown serice whilst in the suite but again you could tell the steward was under pressure.
