This stateroom has a balcony with patio furniture. It offers two twin beds that make up into a queen-sized bed, a refrigerator, television, closet and bathroom with shower, plus a spacious closet and desk.
Our daughter's stayed in an Interior Stateroom across from our Balcony room. We had a good view from our balcony and were glad we had gotten it. Our daughter's room has a fair amount of "creaking" noises on two nights we had some rougher seas. Read entire member review >>
Cabins above and below, no noise other than from adjoining balconies when door open. No vibration noted. Convenient for aft lifts to get direct to Horizon Court for breakfast! Standard layout for this type of ship, small shower cubicle with curtain. Dressing area with long wardrobe rail and plenty of hangers (regular hooks not those hotel style with sliding rings). Good size bed when used as double. Fridge not stocked so usable for your own choice of drinks. 7 drawers. Continental and US electric sockets. 2 chairs can make area a bit crowded. Balcony small with no room for 2 chairs to recline fully but fine outlook one deck above lifeboats. Read entire member review >>
The cabin steward did a fine job. The balcony was small and just above the tenders, which kind of took away from the ambiance. There's never a good spot for the side chair, but otherwise nicely appointed. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was clean to the eyes, but when you really investigate the carpets were dirty and the balcony was never cleaned unless you asked them to be cleaned.
Just a standard 2 star room. Read entire member review >>
Beautiful, huge for a ship, incredibly comfortable bed and nice, smooth linens. Great bathroom, roomy shower, plenty of space for all the toiletries. Our own climate control, and they have in room entertainment, an on demand system on the flat panel tv, that let us watch movies and tv and news and the all important bridge cam.

Great basic cabin for 2 people - we're too busy with on board activities, we hardly stays in our stateroom except to sleep, great balcony view, housekeeping staff was excellent, his name was Wee from Thailand - we can't make out his last name but very attentive to our cabin needs & does a great job making our room very pleasant.

Well arranged. Good closet space. Good bathroom design (better than prior class ships except for Island and Coral - which are also better than other ships). Smallish balcony (we always got the big balcony on the older ships - that doesn't exist on the new ones). Great new on-demand movies on the new wall mounted HD TVs. AC control seems to be improved. Otherwise about the same as the older ships - similar good bed, plenty of dresser drawer space, etc. Read entire member review >>
We had a room with a balcony. It was small but extremely good. The balcony was great. Wardrobe and safe were also in the room. Washroom could be made little better though. In-room television was also excellent with lots of options to view from. Read entire member review >>
Clean, modern spacious, modern attractive decor. Very comfy bed and pillows. TV was ok plenty of choice. Bathroom no problems other than slight lack of pressure from the shower, however after a couple of day the maintenance man came to check it and it was much better. Plenty of storage space, plenty of hangers. Hair dryer. Shower Gel & shampoo/conditioner in pump dispensers in the shower. Balcony same as any other balcony 2 chairs and table, more than adequate. Quite happy with the cabin, nothing to complain about. Read entire member review >>
It was nice having a balcony as the weather was made to make use of the balcony.We had our breakfast most days on the balcony served through room service.
The sad part was that the cabin was not vacuumed nor the balcony cleaned regularly. The towels were not not fluffy nor were they full size towels. We travelled for two weeks before the cruise staying at different hotels this was the worst in the towels we used. Had to tell the cabin attendant to clean the balcony as a few nail clippings remained there for over 2 days till asked to be swept. Read entire member review >>
not quite as big as we thought it would be but it was very nice. WONDERFUL bed and pillows. In fact - would love to get some of those pillows - they were fabulous. Smaller balcony but we could sit outside with no issue Read entire member review >>
Stateroom A534 Mid Aft: Three decks down from lido and about 7 decks above promenade. It was about mid-way between the middle elevator banks and the aft ones which was good but you do walk a bit more due in part strategically due to no mid staircase as mentioned many time (flaw on this ship for sure I agree). That said we always got where we were needing to go. The room is nice basic, was quite most of time but I found to last few days of the cruise I could hear more rattling & vibrations from the ship. Not sure why as the first 5-6 days wasn’t as noticeable and think maybe due to lower fuel load/weight? The balcony is small but worked just fine for us and I use the balcony a lot. However getting 3 on there would be standing room only. I found the washroom smaller than I recall on the ruby/Crown & often would have open the door to dry off. We had excellent room steward Maynard. All soaps excellent lines on bed excellent and room was clean. I know some rooms have a couch in them and wish this was the standard to all rooms.

Cabin was cramped and balcony was small. Closet and shelf space pretty good. Bathroom was tiny with poor shelf space and shower that was too small. Fairly quiet. Very good location. Read entire member review >>
Wonderful cabin. Plenty of room for using a wheelchair. Bathroom very accessible. Balcony easy to navigate in wheelchair.
Location near the elevator, but not so close to have noise. Read entire member review >>
Great aft cabin! Quiet, well layed out with very comfortabled bed. The flat screen TV was fabulous! The bathroom is larger than usual as is the shower. The balcony is a bit small for the Caribe decks but was perfect for relaxing. Read entire member review >>
Our balcony stateroom was mostly like the balcony staterooms we had on the other ships. There is not a lot of space and I noticed that a set of drawers has been removed. The bath has a much improved design but it is still a small bathroom. The bed was too firm for my wife but we asked for a mattress topper and they brought one to us and that worked well for my wife. I understand that the entire fleet is converting to pillow-top beds. If you need more space you have to get a larger stateroom and pay for it. We don't spend much time in our stateroom except to shower and sleep so the lack of space wasn't a big deal for us. Read entire member review >>
This was a very good cabin with a great cabin steward. It is a short walk to the aft elevator and longer walk to the middle elevator. We did not notice the ship was even moving. The cabin was clean. Looking down from the balcony you do see the tender boats . I think if you were on the deck below this cabin you would have a partial obstructed view . We liked this cabin very much.

The cabin was very adequate for us, a couple. We weren't in it all the time and we did enjoy having the balcony. The balcony is smaller than on other ships but was fine for us. We were right above the tenders/lifeboats so could not see straight down to the water, but did have an excellent view straight ahead. We liked having a slightly bigger shower stall with the small ledge that we hadn't had on the Island Princess or Crown Princess. Read entire member review >>
They seem to get smaller and smaller, although it's nice having a shower curtain instead of the sliding door like reminds me of something out of Woody Allen's movie Sleeper. The balcony barely fit two straight chairs and a small table. Dining on the balcony? Hah! Read entire member review >>
Rooms were nice and clean. Bathroom were a little bit smaller than other ships. The rooms were poorly soundproofed, we heard the next door's couple talk very clearly, the TV and some morning there alarm. They were a loud noice (like a huge fan pushing air into our room) coming from the ventilation when we openned to balcony door. Read entire member review >>
A little smaller than the cabins we have had on other ships but, ample room for comfort. There was plenty of storage for toiletries in the bathroom. The closet and drawer space was sufficient to allow us to empty our suitcases and store them in the closet with our hanging clothes. The balcony was small but private and accommodated two chairs and a table with enough room for two people to sit comfortably. The (queen) bed and pillows were exceptional. The room was in good repair and always clean. Read entire member review >>
Smaller than the balcony cabins on the previous Princess ships we've sailed on, especially the balcony itself. The closet and drawers are smaller as well. If you want space, book a higher class of cabin. We won't book this class again. Read entire member review >>
Quiet room in a great location mid forward near staircase. An easy place to navigate throughout the ship from. If you are doing a lot of shore excursions, just a quick and short flight down the stairs to the Princess Theatre where many shore excursions meet. A long walk from the laundry room if you plan on doing laundry. Read entire member review >>
A701. Double balcony cabin set up with a queen size bed. Near elevators. Good size. Clean and quiet. Shower was larger than previously experienced with good sized wall mounted shower gel and shampoo dispensers. Adequate storage facility. Great wall mounted TV with lots of choice.

Comfortable, balcony on the small side.Lots of hanging space and hangers, not that much drawer space.Don't think the extra space of the deluxe balcony is worth having, will probably go for standard balcony or mini-suite next time.Shower a bit bigger than on other Princess ships, which is good, also corner shelves bigger.Positioning of toilet roll dispenser seems badly thought out to me.TV very good, when they get over teething troubles with the loading time for on-demand programmes.

M434 Balcony Cabin Deck 15. Nice room but on the small side, open wardrobe, shelved cupboard with safe (easy to use), decent sized shower, lovely smelling toiletries and nice large square basin. Very small balcony area. Although close to the lifts, there was no noise at all. Read entire member review >>
