Princess Cabin Reviews – NO CABIN QUESTIONS POSTED HERE PLEASE!

Recommended Posts

:)Ship: Royal Princess

 

Class: Royal

 

Deck: Lido

 

Stateroom L215 (sideways inside)

 

Category: IC, I think

 

Port/Starboard/Bow/Stern: Forward, starboard

 

Connects With Cabin: No

 

Accessible: No

 

Quiet: Yes, for the most part

 

Balcony Size: Wishful thinking!

 

View: N/A

 

Privacy Issues: No

 

Wind: No

 

Soot: No

 

Problems: Take care as passersby can see directly into sleeping area when door is opened. Occasional unidentifiable clanking sound in night-time, but not bothersome. No sound from Retreat pool above except some slight noise during a Latin party night (only one of us heard it).

 

Comments: Excellent location on Lido, lots of storage, roomy in twin bed configuration; would get this cabin again in a heartbeat.

Dec:k Emerald

 

Stateroom #: E111

 

Category: IF

 

Port/Starboard/Bow/Stern: Bow

 

Connects With Cabin #: No

 

Balcony Size: No Balcony

 

View: None

 

Privacy Issues: No

 

Wind: : No

 

Problems: Upon arriving in every port, there was noise from the thrusters and anchor(s). One morning we were awake at 5 AM from the noise. When walking to our cabin also noticed some "machinery noise" about midship. Would not book an inside cabin on this deck again.

 

Comment:: This was about as far forward in the bow of the ship that one could be. We did notice some movement one night. However, we had a very calm sea on this trip.

Comments At various times of the day and night, we heard rushing water. After several telephone calls found out that we were hearing discharge water from the Horizon Court dishwasher. If you like to sleep with the balcony door open to hear the water, this won't bother you. If you like a quiet cabin, better choose another cabin.

Class Grand

 

Deck Baja

 

Cabin # B419

 

Category BA

 

Port/Starboard/Bow/Stern Starboard Midship

 

 

Connects With Cabin # N/A

 

Accessible No

 

Quiet Yes. The cabin is conveniently near the elevators, but not so near that you get noise from the elevators or other passengers.

 

Balcony Size 5'x9' (Standard size--I didn't measure)

 

View Unobstructed

 

Privacy Issues None, although I could see down into balconies on decks below

 

Wind I took a Transatlantic cruise so there was always wind. The wind varied by the course of the ship. Most of the time, wind was not a problem, but a couple of times the wind was heavy.

Soot None

 

Problems I had no problems with anything in the cabin.

Comments Cabin B419 may be close to the perfect balcony cabin. It was very quiet, with no noise from elevators or decks above or below. Depending on the wind, I sometimes could smell hamburgers from the Salty Dog a couple of decks above, but the smell wasn't strong or unpleasant. The cabin was a perfect location for a Transatlantic cruise--midships on Deck 11. There was no vibration of any kind, and I felt less ship's movement in the cabin than in other parts of the ship.

Ship: Regal Princess

 

Class: Royal

 

Deck: Dolphin

 

Stateroom #: D726

 

Category: S3

 

Port/Starboard/Bow/Stern: Port Aft

 

Connects With Cabin #: N/A

 

Accessible: No

 

Quiet: Yes.

 

Balcony Size: HUGE. Partially covered. Wrap-around from port side to aft. IIRC it's 150+ sq. ft.

 

View: Amazing aft wake views.

 

Privacy Issues: Partially covered balcony means people on Caribe deck can look down onto your balcony.

 

Wind: None on the aft side. Normal winds on the port side.

 

Soot: Yes, a slow and gradual build up of soot over a week-long cruise.

 

Problems: Minor inconvenience of soot. Wife mentioned vibrations a few times during our week-long cruise. I chalked it up to her being over sensitive as she came from an earthquake prone area.

 

Comments: Great balcony. One of the largest balcony on a ship where most balconies are unusable. Cabin is close to the aft bank of elevators and stairs. Only 2 decks up from Promenande meant no elevator traffic jams (used stairs). We liked the layout of this cabin, as the "bedroom" is separated from the "living room." If you want/like an open floor like those in mid-ship suites, avoid all S3 cabins on Royal-class ships. Regal's suites already had the new Princess Luxury beds and they were dreamy.

I would imagine many will tell you that it will be horrible due to noise from MUTS and chair scraping, etc. However, we did 15 days in A408 (same warnings of horrible stuff) and had a great cruise with absolutely no noise issues. Many may tell you not to book the cabin. I'd book it and not worry at all.

 

Maybe we got really lucky but... Like I said, we had no issues.

Thank you for getting back to me. We are pretty easy folks so we will only put positive words out there and I am sure we will be fine! Thanks again.

Category: Suite

 

Port/Starboard/Bow/Stern: Starboard Stern

 

Connects With Cabin # none

 

Accessible: Yes

 

Quiet: NoNoNoNoNo. Engine noise is TERRIBLE!!

 

Balcony Size: 1 table, 2 chairs. NO chaise

 

View: OK

 

Privacy Issues: None

 

Wind: Not problematic

 

Soot: Yes, when nearby exhaust fired off

 

Problems: Does NOT have advertised suite features: chaise, tub, walk-in closets, divider.

 

Comments This room is basically a mini-suite with engine noise added for free. It is in NO WAY a suite, and Princess should be ashamed to advertise it as such. (Hint: they are not.)

Ship: EMERALD PRINCESS

 

Class: Grand

 

Deck: 15 - LIDO

 

Stateroom # L210

 

Category: Balcony (BF)

 

Port/Starboard/Bow/Stern: Port

 

Connects With Cabin #: Next to L206 & L214

Accessible:

 

Quiet: Yes. Some minor noise when on balcony from people walking on decking of Deck 16, but never noticed in room, only when outside on balcony.

 

Balcony Size: Standard (See pictures)

 

View: Great views. Can see Port-Side bridge from balcony but still enough privacy to not feel like they were looking in at all.

 

Privacy Issues: None

 

Wind: Not an issue with the room and surprisingly not any more than expected on the balcony.

 

Soot: None

 

Problems: Not really see comments below.

 

Comments: See our information below!

 

 

Room Features& Amenities

·Bed – Very comfortable.

·Pillows – 4 (Down) pillows. Great and comfortable. 2 extra throw pillows.

·Mini-Fridge

·TV – appears to have an hdmi hook up butextremely difficult to access. RCA jacksare accessible for tall people.

·Closet – enough space to hang all our clothesand jackets. 17 hangers, but reallyneeded like 25.

·Safe – worked. Standard 4-code hotel safe. Not enough room to store laptop, but camera,phones, passports, etc. not an issue.

·Robes provided (upon request and arrived Monday(Day 2)

 

Bathroom

·Shower – small, but to be expected. Had shampoo & conditioner available inshower pump bottles.

·Sink

·Towels: 2 bath towels, 2 hand towels, 2 wash cloths. Standard hotel quality.

 

Balcony

·2 Chairs

·1 small round table

 

Needs Improvement (Room)

·No Clock; Phone had time and TV had time when turned on to certain channels.

·Wish it had a small love seat but space would not allow with desk and room layout.

·Larger TV would be nice, especially if they could mount it on the wall instead of the small TV in the corner above“mini-bar.”

·TV channels did not have a “ship tracker” map to see where our cruise ship was during its travels.

 

 

What You Can Do to Make It Better

 

  • ·Electric candles. We brought 6 of them. Placed 3 in corner by TV, 1 in bathroom, 1 bybed side table, 1 on “bar area” above mini-fridge. Nice subtle ambient light without the fire hazard.
  • ·Bluetooth speakers. We brought a nice portable Bluetooth speaker which was great for music on the balcony and in the room. Some nice relaxing music on the balcony is anice addition to the sound of the ocean. Connected it via my cellphone.
  • ·Magnets. Now I had heard a bit of this on the CruiseCritic forum before we left,but am definitely a fan now. We put our one magnet we bought in Seattle on the wall and later added all the others from our ports and tours. Would be nice to put “where we have been” magnets on the wall on future cruises too. Might also be nice to get family photos made into magnets (flat so they are flush with the wall) so that you can enjoy seeing those who you love that couldn’t come along. Might be good for kids too if traveling with Grandparents, etc. of their pets, mom & dad, etc.
  • ·Bring a thermometer. We were always wondering how cold/warm it was outside on our balcony. There were little ones on magnets in the gift shops, but we were never too sure how accurate they would be so we didn’t buy one. Wedidn’t like how they looked either.

Decks 9 (Dolphin) & 10 (Caribe) as seen from our balcony. (Don't let the reflection confuse you.) Be aware that if you do a balcony on those decks everyone from above can see in your balcony. Also seagulls may do "their" thing when in port.

Ship: Island Princess

Class:

Deck: Baja

Cabin: #416

Category: MI Mini Suite

Port/Starboard/Bow/Stern: Port Mid Ship

Connects With Cabin: #none

Accessible: No

Quiet: Not as quiet as some

Balcony Size: Very Small - barely enough room for two chairs and foot stools. Had to move the table into the cabin

View: Unobstructed

Privacy Issues: Glass rounded corner balcony. Not as private as most.

Wind: Windy

Soot: None

Problems: These corner cabins with a rounded window on the deck have a good view but it was difficult to sit on the balcony when the ship was moving because of the wind. The balcony was very small. It's covered but so exposed with only two walls that any rain or sun would be an issue. There is also about 8 feet on one wall that does not have another cabins abutting to it so you could hear people in the hallway. It wasn't really a problem because people were considerate but it was noisier than any other cabin we have had.

Comments: Location was great. Right around the corner from the mid-ship elevators and stairs. I really like Baja deck. I would not book this cabin again because of the balcony size and exposure.

Balcony Size - Extended. Not huge, but big enough for us to do UBD or have morning coffee without feeling cramped. Clearly bigger than the standard Regal balcony.

 

View - Good.

 

Privacy Issues - Mostly private. We were several decks below the Skylight bar, so if we tried, we could look up to see the occasional passer-by. Though, this was no more invasive to our privacy than someone on a joining stateroom leaning on their railing and looking forward/backwards. We are extremely private people, and this didn't bother us in the least.

 

Wind - Very little

 

Soot - N/A

 

Problems - None worth mentioning.

 

Comments - Wonderful location, stateroom, and attendant. I would not hesitate to recommond, or book this stateroom again.

Problems We thought the designers overlooked storage...to create room for the love seat a lot of storage was eliminated. The vanity was very small and had only one drawer. It was fine for a week, but I would struggle with organization on a longer cruise. My relatives in regular balcony cabins had a much bigger vanity and more storage.

 

 

 

Comments We enjoyed the larger balcony. The location close to the midship elevators and stairs was fantastic. I would choose the cabin again for a cruise of a week or less. That said, I struggled enough with space that I just upgraded to a mimi-suite for our 12 night cruise next year. Yes, I'm spoiled!

Quiet as long as the seas are calm the room didnt creak. never heard neighbor noise except the typical open and closing of balcony. no issues from the retreat above except one day after 9 am. during normal sleeping hours i had no noise issues from above. dont know if you could sleep in all day though with chairs above sometimes being moved. being on lido was fantastic location and i highly recommend it.

 

Balcony Size need more knee room but same size as Breakaway so I was used to it. i had the ultimate dinner in the room because of weather but i think it would be extremely tight to do this on a balcony of this size

 

View standard balcony view.

Privacy Issues same as any other balcony. good unless someone looks over

Wind

Soot

Problems very slow tub drain and a smell which i dont think was the toilet. thankfully only had this in the bathroom and never made its way to the cabin. ive heard it may be the drain seals drying out

 

Comments if you have calm seas this room is perfect. however we had force 10 winds which the captain said was out of a 12 scale, and the room creaked horribly in the walls and ceiling. constant banging for 2 nights and virtually no sleep. would never get this room again because you cannot guarantee calm seas. also someone apparently had driven a piece of wood in the corner of the ceiling to try to presumably make the room more quiet. I've been on another ship with a storm and while it swayed just as much, i never heard this much creaking noise. would try another lido cabin next time

Cabin # 750

 

Category: B4 - Premium Balcony

 

Port/Starboard/Bow/Stern: Aft

 

Connects With Cabin #: NA

 

Accessible: No

 

Quiet: Yes

 

Balcony Size: Deeper than normal

 

View: Balcony partly obstructed due to support beam

 

Privacy Issues: None

 

Wind: No problem

 

Soot: No

 

Problems: Had problems with toilet not properly flushing on several occasions. Maintenance attended to rectify. Understand there was on ongoing plumbing issue in this area of the ship. Will hopefully be resolved during upcoming dry dock (if not before).

 

Not really a problem, but had to share - we had a ‘stowaway’ on our balcony. One of the maintenance team came, checked him out and saw him off the ship. Apparently, it happens on a regular basis and they have a bit of special training to deal with the ‘stowaways’, but a new one for us.

 

Comments: Love aft cabins for the wake view. Don’t find the ‘vibration’ bothers us. Liked the deeper balcony, especially as this was a colder weather cruise (Northern Crossing TA in September) as much more sheltered, meaning we still used it most days.

 

Chairs can be turned sideways to sit in front of ‘beam’ or loads of room behind it for the table and chairs.

 

Convenient to HC/Cafe Caribe & Outrigger Bar on Lido. Which meant we could go up get coffee, breakfast, lunch, snacks, beverages and bring them back to the cabin to enjoy on balcony.

 

Some may consider it a negative, that it’s a bit of a walk to mid and forward ship, but not an issue for us, gotta get those steps in.

 

While not our ‘favourite’ aft cabin, wouldn’t hesitate to book again. c297176b1156fbfe4842602b947faa6d.jpg7a5a4334350827063f4881db8de0637f.jpg54e0d171b635c4ffaee374e71292a6a7.jpg3cc348445a522b9903d2c5f86af02daf.jpg
