Am trying to decide what deck to book on the Island Princess. Have cabins picked out on Emerald Deck and Baja Deck. I have read that Baja deck balconies are not covered and am concerned that I may miss the privacy that I'm used to. I do enjoy being higher in the ship but would like your opinions please. Thanks.

We stayed in Baja 304 and 306 and they are covered. Good location (stairs) and quiet.

Princess representative assured me that A-429 is totally covered. Another poster said it is partially covered. Your comment above indicates that A-429 is uncovered. I now have three versions of my booked cabin. Guess we'll just have to wait and see what we get when we board the Island next year.

Thanks for the info. It appears I'm going to be booking B506. I haven't been able to find any good photos of the deck coverage, even on the Princess web site.

I believe you are referring to Sun Class ships.I have sailed the Island four times and have had uncovered balconies on both Caribe & Dolphin decks.There are also some uncovered balconies on Aloha and Baja in the rear of the ship.

Colo Cruiser--looks like you've been on the Island Princess. Would you happen to know about whether cabin B506 has a covered balcony? Thanks.

I was in C328 on the Island, which was partially covered and thought it was perfect for Alaska. It was twice the size of the totally covered and totally uncovered.
