Stateroom #: E301

 

Category: OW

 

Port/Starboard/Bow/Stern: Starboard

 

Connects With Cabin #: na

 

Accessible: Yes

Balcony Size: none

 

View: obstructed

 

Privacy Issues: none

Comments: We were assigned this cabin as a GTY, so didn't require accessible cabin. Cabin is huge, would expect you could fit 2 wheelchairs/scooters in the cabin.

 

Mid-forward, lower deck, super convenient to Piazza, theatre, anytime MDRs. Straight up the lifts to Lido, trident grill and gym/spa.

Problems Bed worn and uncomfortable. Cabin Steward could not replace the mattresses.

Comments Other than the mattresses, we were very happy with this cabin and location - perfect for cruising Alaska. The Lido deck over-hang kept the rain off us on the balcony. Inside the cabin we never heard any noise from the Lido deck. We did hear some Lido deck noise when on the balcony but it was not bothersome.

Comments: This cabin door opens up, looking into the elevator area on this deck. There is sometimes a little more noise that can be heard when in the living area as people enter & exit the elevators, and gather in that area. It was not noticable in the bedroom at night, only if sitting on the sofa in the living area. This room could be a plus for someone with mobility issues as when you go out the door, there are no hallways to navigate through to get to the elevators. As of 2/2016 after the drydock, this cabin does have the new mattress. When in bed, you are facing the front of the ship. More pictures in the review in our signature of the room and ship on the PC 10-day

We just returned last week from our Alaskan Cruise aboard The Crown ship.

 

Although for the most part our Mini-Suite was clean it was also very dated. It's time a major update on this ship. I've posted pictures on a blog entry from today so that you can see what I'm referring too. Here is the link. . .

 

http://susansutherlindesigns.com/crown-princess-our-stateroom/

 

Next time we are thinking about taking a smaller cruise ship that offers more of an educational experience, which will also be a much more current release. :)

Since the Ocean Princess is no longer in service with Princess I have removed the entries for the two reviews from the spreadsheet located at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1iJDFCtotsFNUvSNFzZ3LXomW95WX7R0svO7JhGRBvpo/edit?pli=1#gid=530283129.

 

The actual reviews remain on the Cruise Critic thread.

 

Thank you to the authors of the two reviews. Please continue to post reviews of other ships when you sail.

Comments

I was nervous about this cabin after reading some reviews on the forum here, but all of those were alleviated very quickly upon arrival! This is a great stateroom. It is quiet, despite being beside the staff quarters and under the Princess Theatre. It's at the very end of the hallway, but we didn't mind the extra walking.

Hard to decide which cabin to choose so if you are familiar with them, input would be great. We cannot afford a balcony and do not like Emerald Deck above the clubs stc. due to noise

 

DECK 12 ALOHA A511, inside

A339 inside

A721 inside

 

DECK 14 RIVIERA R241 inside

R747 THE MOST STERN OV PORTHOLES NEAR AFT POOL

 

DECK 15 LIDO L241

L245

 

Any help re: convenient location, quiet, somewhat stable in wind.

THANKS

We just returned from an Alaskan Cruise aboard the Crown a Princess. We were on the Emerald Deck right below the major dancing club and never heard a peep!

 

For pictures of our room go to www.susansutherlindesigns.com and take a look at the BLOG.

 

 

Thanks for the info.

Also close enough to grab a drink at Mermaid's tail or Calypso if you want to take a drink back to your room. We loved this location/stateroom, we'd do anything to book here again!

Accessible Great Access to Princess Theater By Elevator

 

Quiet Mostly quiet

 

Balcony Size:Balcony was tiny.

 

View OK, Room itself was quite small.

 

Wind Very Windy so Balcony door very difficult to open or shut.

 

Soot

 

Comments We very much enjoyed the new set up with wall mounted TV Screen, and the on-demand movies best watched from bed. The cabin was very small, and there was really no place to sit but the bed.An extra chair was provided, but it had to be costantly moved from place to place so the balcony doors could be accessed, or the window drapes opened or closed. Also there was no place to put a breakfast tray, or for a meal in the cabin. Laundry room was miles away at the other end of the ship.

I am looking to get information on specific cabins on the Regal Princess but this document does not have the Regal listed. Am I missing something?

Ship - Grand Princess

Class - Grand

Deck- Aloha

Cabin # A746

Category - OE

Port/Starboard/Bow/Stern - Port side Aft

Connects With Cabin # - N/A

Accessible - No

Quiet - Yes

Balcony Size - Not a balcony cabin, but the stern is only a few steps away. Easy to walk outside and see the sights.

View - Porthole view, not that great

Privacy Issues - None

Wind - None

Soot - None

Problems - In rough seas, you'll get a bumpy ride. We were almost tossed from the bed the first night at sea!

Comments - Great location, just a few steps from the aft pool and one deck below Horizon Court. You're far enough aft that foot traffic from above is not an issue. Cabin is only 160 square feet so it's a little tight, but we would book this cabin again.

Try this site.......

 

Remember the Royal and Regal are the same so you might see cabin info for the Royal only.

Actually there are reviews of specific cabins on the Regal Princess in this spreadsheet. If you look at the tab "Managing Data" you can see how to filter the contents of the spreadsheet and drill down to Regal Princess cabins.

 

If you need some help e-mail me at princesscabincomp@gmail.com.

Category SUITE

 

Port/Starboard/Bow/Stern PORT, MID-SHIP

 

Connects With Cabin # NO

 

Accessible NO

 

Quiet YES? SOMETIMES SLIGHT NOISE FROM LIDO DECK; NOT DISTURBING ON ALASKA ITINERARY

 

Balcony Size NORMAL

 

View NORMAL

 

Privacy Issues NONE

 

Wind NO

 

Soot NO

 

Problems NONE REALLY: balcony was covered so sometimes difficult to get a photo; wind and precipitation well blocked most of time on Alaska sailing

 

Comments Enjoyed having a suite; too much storage--couldn't remember where I placed things! Only had time to use the tub once; nice not fighting a shower curtain. Suite seems smaller in "real life" than it appears in photos and the 360 on the website. Had to rearrange the balcony furniture to try to make it easier to move around as we had 2 friends spending time with us on balcony. Only 2 chairs with the table plus 2 deck chairs; blanket on each of the deck chairs too.

Ship Regal Princess

 

Class

 

Deck Lido (16)

 

Stateroom # L-106

 

Category Mini Suite (obstructed)

 

Port/Starboard/Bow/Stern Very Front, forward facing, closer to Port side.

 

Connects With Cabin # No room connection.

 

Accessible Not specifficsl designed for handicapped accessibility.

 

Quiet Very quiet. Can't hear neighbors or hall noise. At night can occasionally hear adjacent toilets flushing.

 

Balcony Size HUGE-- I would say 14 feet wide by about 10 feet deep.

 

View Fantastic view of ports etc from deck. Sitting in your cabin looking out of your sliding door you can't see ocean because it has a solid metal railing (obstructed view cabin for this reason). This was not a downside for us but others may like sitting inside and looking at ocean.

 

Privacy Issues Standing at railing, you can see cabin decks to right and left, and can see the front parts of the balconies below. The deck above this cabin cannot look into this balcony. Unless you are at the railing, you have total privacy on this huge balcony.

 

Wind VERY WINDY when ship traveling at 20 knots. I did not mind this but my wife did. You don't notice wind as much when seated because the solid from rail deflects wind, but definitely windy when standing. When ship traveling at 10-13 knots, not nearly as windy when standing at rail.

 

Soot minimal/ none

 

Problems none except the bathroom smells like a men's urinal despite cleaning by steward. Toilet always flushed fine. Smell not noticed in cabin, but when standing at toilet, is noticeable but not a big issue.

 

Comments Would book again but wind is a partial deterrent to enjoying balcony. Views are outstanding.
