Caribbean Princess deck 14 aft stateroom question

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi, we are thinking of booking a Panama Canal partial on the CP and have a question about the deck 14 aft staterooms.  Is there much noise or food smell from the buffet above?  This is our first time on CP.

We like a quiet room but enjoy the proximity to the upstairs amenities.  Thanks in advance for your responses!

On the CB deck 14 aft is a great location. Close to the doors to the aft pool and 1 deck up to the buffet. We stay in the 700’s and have never had food odors or noise from above. The more forward you get the more chance of chair noise etc from above.

Thanks for the quick response! By CB we assume you are referring to Caribbean Princess,, correct?

agree - great location back there ... just be sure to check the deck plans to see if a potential cabin is a connecting cabin unless that is what you want ... not even really sure if they have those back there or not

Great location..We always try to book there.  No smell from the buffet and close to the aft pool.

Everything Keith said is very accurate.  We tend to be Deck 14 aft devotees, all for the same reasons

Yes CP (Sea Princess) was built before the Caribbean Princess so they gave  the Caribbean Princess the CB abbrev. Many of the ship abbreviations don’t make sense I know.  🤪

As Keith said, the abbreviations can be quite confusing. The abbreviation is included as part of the URL if you check out the ships on the Princess site.

Exactly what everybody else said. We just stayed in the same area and it was so convenient to the Terrace pool and the buffet or take the elevators straight down to deck 7 and go forward to the Piazza where all the activity is and of course International Café.

The Terrace Pool is my wife's favorite place. We wouldn't hesitate to book near there. Given her love of that area and the proximity to the buffet and Outrigger I like the location as well. (I don't hang out in the sun. I'm a fat boy and hate sweating in the sun and also worry about skin damage. I sometimes tell people I "sweat like a pig" but, in truth, pigs don't sweat which is why they like to cool themselves by wallowing in mud. There is your pointless trivia for the day.) The real point here is that we totally agree with the others here that this is a good location. I love a balcony but, if we ever get around to booking yet another cruise, (we have 2 this fall and a B2B2B booked for next fall) perhaps next Spring (?) we would probably be happy to book an inside in this area.

That is awesome location and no, you can't smell the food in your cabin, or hear the noise from the deck, don't worry.

We love the aft cabins on deck 14. Even the insides are fine as they are close to the aft pool which is almost empty of passengers in the early evening. We do hear lounge chairs being moved at around 0700 every morning. Not too loud but definitely some noise.
