Cabin E421

While our balcony was supposedly obstructed we had no obstruction. Since I had sailed Royal Princess before, I was aware of the balcony cabins on Emerald deck that are over the seating areas on Deck 7 just outside Crooners and Facets. We are on the starboard side over Facets and had beautiful views with no obstructions. It was a regular balcony cabin so we had plenty of storage with a desk and cabinet that held the refrigerator with mirrors over both, which was handy for getting ready in the morning/evening. We had an angled balcony, so it was nice to have the extra outside space. Since we were so far down from the seawalk, it didn't provide any privacy issues. Loved the convenience of this location and you can't beat the price.

Cabin E310

Though the cabin was pleasant enough, and the bathroom/shower acceptable, the "obstructed view" was pretty much "NO view". I appreciate the lower price, but it should have been advertised more precisely--the lifeboats are all you see except for about a 2-foot width from Emerald Deck. I would have paid more for an upper deck balcony. Because of the big push to add revenue, the quiet hours are not enforced. The VIPs are allowed to book the disco until all hours. Our cabin was 2 decks above Club 6, and we had to complain, in person, at 2 am more than once. Still they did not stop the music, find us another room, or offer any compensation. The "consumate host" values VIP money above honest nights' sleep. The sound/feel of the bass was delivered straight to our bed, and even when you couldn't hear the music, the beat pounded our heads from 11 pm to 2:30 am. Needless to say, this made our excursion days very trying, and we ended up with head colds and sinus infections--no doubt because of the lack of sleep. We were repeatedly told that there was no way around the policies, due to the need to keep the revenue-generating casino open. (And we were even told that this bar was the only one in the Casino area, which is not true.) Had we tried to cancel excursions we would get no refund. Because of this greedy and short-sighted set of policies, I will be wary of ever cruising with Princess again.

Cabin E-610

Picked this cabin because of its location on Deck 8 and toward the rear of the ship. Also, liked the value that an obstructed view cabin provides. This cabin has a great location, near the rear elevators, which are less crowded and one deck about the entertainment and two decks above our dining room.

Our Favorite By: tbaxter33
I don't remember our cabin number. It was an obstructed balcony. Don't let that scare you. The view is not obstructed that badly and they are a great value.

Cabin E228
Dec 2016
Cabin was clean and comfortable. Small balcony with the lifeboat obstruction to the left but the view facing outward and to the right was good. Need to carry a small magnifying mirror as one is not provided. The shampoo and conditioner in the shower is mixed together and as a female with long curly hair is wasn't good.

Cabin E106

Rough around the edges By: Bourbon Believer
Have stayed in this category of cabin on the Regal so I knew exactly what I was getting. One of the refit items for the Royal was to install doors between the balcony cabins. This cabin is of good size and has a small love seat sized sofa in it. I did notice that Princess have reclassified this cabin as a Deluxe obstructed cabin. They are charging a higher price than I paid on the Regal and the only difference I saw was the addition of foot stools to the two chairs on the balcony. Still price was less than a non obstructed deluxe balcony. The obstructed portion is the bottom is actually solid hull steel. Views above the hull are unobstructed.

Cabin E 439
Jul 2015
As for the cabins, I had an obstructed view (E 439) which sits directly above the smallest life boat just one deck below. The view was O.K., but once again, the life boats were placed between deck 7 & 8 so that most of the balcony stateroom are obstructed. Not really a very good view if situated just above one of the larger life boats. As far as the balcony staterooms go, the balconies were cramped and smaller than most other cruises /cruise lines on which I have sailed. It seems that the architects were scrimping on cabins in deference to larger public spaces (with the intent purpose of revenue), and with the exception being the Princess Theater which was smaller than other ships (Grand / Golden). The showers were outfitted with the standard dreaded shower curtain. The bedspreads I believe, were noted to be duvets. These duvets were rather heavy and did not have a sheet separating them from the fitted sheets.

Best holiday ever! By: Aussiehoneymooners
Great size, spacious, generous luggage space. Bathroom was quite small but it was fine for us. Balcony wasn't really obstructed, had nothing in front of us. Really recommend this cabin.
