My husband and I were on the Island Princess in December for a Panama Canal cruise (15 days). The first few days were sea days and I wanted to read my book for a while. It was kind of chilly on the balcony so I sat in the desk chair. It wasn’t comfortable but the only other place was the bed. Something didn’t feel right but it wasn’t until I found this thread that I realized what was wrong. No barrel chair!! I really missed it! We did have the little table which we used for Patters, water bottles, setting up for the next day excursion., etc. We kept the garbage can under the table.
We have a cruise scheduled in April in Japan on the Diamond Princess. Those cruises are different so I will make it a point to check the furniture. I will be bringing in a balcony chair and/or the teeny balcony table if needed. We have 2 Princess cruises booked in 2020 and may reconsider. We are Platinum, btw.
