Cabin # A633

Category BE Balcony

Port/Starboard/Bow/Stern Midship starboard

Connects With Cabin # n/a

Accessible No

Quiet Very. On our Alaska itinerary, I heard no noise from above on the Lido Deck. Large overhang does produce some echoes of loud sounds on other balconies.

Balcony Size 5x9

View Unobstructed both forward and aft. The overhang does prevent looking straight up to the sky, but even in Alaska we didn't find this an issue.

Privacy Issues None, other than the usual adjoining neighbors who could be a foot away on the next balcony. No one can look down onto this balcony (including probably the bridge).

Wind not a problem

Soot not a problem

Problems Children's area is just aft of this balcony but on a summer Alaska cruise with several kids we noticed no noise or problems associated with this.

Comments Nice to be just one deck below the Lido for quick access to more expansive views of either the Panama Canal or Alaska. Conveniently located near stairwell.

Comments This window minisuite includes the square footage that would have been the balcony, so it's very spacious, with a little extra storage in an additional end table. Very convenient access to the open deck viewing area.

There is a housekeeping storage area in the nearby cross hallway. Although the cabin door of 204 is paired with C206 and thus appears on the deck plans to be opposite that, it is actually a little forward and there was no noise/disturbance in 204.

Comments Door to crew area is one cabin away at the end of the passage, but no real noise factor, just some random crew traffic up and down hall.

Occasional tugboat or barge would choose this location to park itself meaning sometimes noise and/or light from their searchlights filtering in the window.

Wouldn't want to book anywhere else -- loved this location and this cabin!

Sorry, but when I open the link the only thing I see is a copy of the initial post describing what the spreadsheet will be. There is no cabin information. Am I doing something wrong?

Hmmmm. Try this link https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing

Wait for the spreadsheet to load then look for the tabs at the bottom. The tab you want is "Princess Cabin Compilation".

You can e-mail me at [email protected] if that doesn't work.

Problems A few vibrations depending on manoeuvres in and out of port but nothing very much. However, July 2015 the bath (this is a mini suite) is in a very poor condition and looks more like a 1* than 5*.

Comments This mini suite is immediately under the bridge and at the end of the corridor so a bit of a walk to the stairs/lift. The balcony space is in the room therefore gives plenty of space at the seating end of the cabin. As we were under the bridge so were not going to have anyone looking in through the window we were able to leave the net curtains open during the day so always could see where we were.

Comments Loved this ship although not for everyone. Plenty of storage. The 'guest bathroom' consisted of toilet and hand basin which was very useful.

Comments Perfectly comfortable, light came thru bottom of door (rolled up towel solved that!), really wish the closet area had doors (reminds me of a cheap motel), unable to access HDMI or USB port on TV (unable to change input with remote). Easy access up to Horizon and gym, also down to Allegro dining room.

Comments Disappointing lounge area. No Wet Bar; small fridge that did not accommodate large bottles. Plenty of storage. Only a washbasin in the guest bathroom - no toilet. Lovely large balcony, part covered, but with Soot issues. We had noticed soot deposits, although comparatively minor, right from our first day at sea. However, the deposits at Naples were excessive and it took the room steward most of the day to clean (not nice for him). Great view from the stern.
