Ship - Crown

Class - Grand

Deck - 9

Cabin # - D736

Category - St. Thomas (Vista) suite

Port/Starboard/Bow/Stern - completely aft

Connects With Cabin # - not a connecting cabin

Accessible - no

Quiet - yes

Balcony Size - massive with enough room for a table, 4 chairs, and 2 loungers. Note that it does have a support beam toward the left of the balcony but it really wasn't an issue.

View - aft 

Privacy Issues - none

Wind - very little

Soot - none

Problems - The vibration upon docking was absolutely ridiculous. We have sailed in many aft cabins and have never experience this level of vibrating - the entire cabin rattled the whole time we were docking (at one point I got up and separated the classes on our bar setup because they were clinking together so hard I thought one would break!) Also, no shelves by the bathroom sink. 

Comments - this is the second time we've had an aft suite on this ship and due to the vibration both times (the first time wasn't as bad as this time), I will not be booking aft cabins on this class of ship again. For the cost of a suite it's rather frustrating to be rattled awake every morning! (granted, it really made us appreciate sea days even more since we could sleep past 6/6:30 am!)

Ship  - Regal Princess

Class  - Royal

Deck  - Baja (11)

Cabin # - B525

Category - Mini Suite

Port/Starboard/Bow/Stern - Starboard midship

Connects With Cabin #


Quiet - Yes

Balcony Size - Smaller than the minis on Grand class ships.

View - view directly below is blocked by the lifeboats along the promenade deck, otherwise unobstructed.

Privacy Issues - We liked the fact that the balcony was covered unlike our previous cruises on Grand class ships where we had a mini on the Dolphin deck which was open and viewable from above.

Wind - some depending on wind direction

Soot - none

Problems - none

Comments - In general we liked the layout of the minis on this ship vs Grand class. Having the desk opposite the sofa opened up the sleeping area somewhat. One drawback is the only outlets are on the desk so it you have a CPAP you may need an extension cord.

Deck 4


Stateroom #4035


Category IB


Port/Starboard/Bow/Stern NONE


Connects With Cabin # NO


Accessible YES


Quiet Somewhat, depends on the inconsiderate neighbors who let their door slam and occasional noises from the medical clinic on the opposite side


Balcony Size NONE




Privacy Issues NO






Problems YES! Not enough cool air circulation



The lack of cool fresh air is bothersome. If you are asthmatic or have claustrophobic issues you should think about booking another room. Even after adjusting the thermostat to the coolest setting, it still isn’t cool, the ship often automatically cuts the air flow after 1am to economize, assuming passengers are sleeping. You may awake sweating and unable to sleep. Ask for a fan, if you didn’t bring one! The air flow has been addressed several times, however, the engineers don’t know how to fix it, they claim 75F is “acceptable by their standards.”

Deck 3 is only accessible from the Aft elevators. There is diesel fumes just outside the elevator hallway area on this deck. This problem has been addressed at least 5 months ago! Nothing has been done. The guest relations ass’t acted like he didn’t know and says they will address it. The cabin doesn’t have enough cool air circulation. Typical small bathroom/shower facilities.

Deck 7


Stateroom # 7053


Category IB


Port/Starboard/Bow/Stern None


Connects With Cabin # No


Accessible No


Quiet Yes


Balcony Size None


View None


Privacy Issues None


Wind None


Soot None


Problems Yes



This cabin has wonderful cold air circulation. The problem is the room is VERY small. There may be less than 1 foot on each side of the bed (when the 2 beds are pushed together to make a queen sized bed). The small marble looking table is in the way when trying to use the bathroom at night, you could easily fall. This deck is higher and that means you WILL experience a lot of movement. This inside room should be set aside for guest entertainers, not passengers. If you are cost conscious and think this inside cabin may work for you be aware that the rough seas (most of the time) will be a problem navigating within the small confines of this cabin. Typical SMALL bathroom with angled toilet. Very little closet space.
