Regal Princess Inside Cabin Recommendation

Recommended Posts

If I were choosing or me, I'd go with a forward inside on Lido or Marina. I like top of the ship and forward. If you worry about motion, then maybe one of the sideways cabins on Baja or Caribe would suit you better. I've never had a sideways cabin, but people here are always saying how well they like them.

Looking to go the Regal Princess on a cruise next year and was wondering were you might recommend a inside cabin and best deck etc as I am new to the line.


Last November we enjoyed 28-days in an interior cabin (C411) on the Sky which is the same class as the Regal. It’s a sideways cabin (parallel to the hallway) midship on a lower deck for more stability. We never heard any sounds & preferred the sideways configuration to the standard configuration perpendicular to the hallway.
 

One word of caution...do not get a quad occupancy cabin where even the closed upper bunks can result in bumping your head. This photo is of the cabin next to our twin occupancy cabin.

We learned the hard way... do not book by a "blank" space. Ours (on the Crown) was

next to an "Engine Chimney"/ Engine type Room" and was SO NOISY basically all of the time.

This cruise was a spur of the moment booking to be with my sister. Needless to say, we now

only book our favorite aft balconies.

In looking at the Royal Princess for May, 2021 interior cabins aren't priced on the website. They may eventually, but I suspect they are still considering the possibility of having to quarantine folks and not wanting to "trap" them in an inside cabin.

The advice above is pretty good. I would also suggest you to watch some YouTube videos of interior cabins on RoyalRegal, or Majestic (the Sky has slightly different furnishings and decor) -- they should give you a pretty good overview of what to expect.

 

For the sideways cabins (they are horizontal on the deck plan when booking OR vertical on the deck plan when viewing ship deck plans on the website), they exclude the "hallway" aspect in the room like you would see in one of the conventional interior rooms, and instead, you enter right into the sleeping area. Because of that, the room comes off as much more roomy, especially if you choose to have the twins bed configuration instead of the queen. I think there is one drawback, though -- since the sleeping area is now right next to the door/the wall adjoining the hallway, loud people or other hallway noise could be a little disruptive. And maybe the light seeping in to the room might bother you, but it's not a huge deal (you can just get a pool towel and cover any gap).

 

Whatever you do, DON'T get a connecting room (unless you're traveling with loved ones) -- you can find which ones are connecting by looking on the website deck plan. If you're sensitive to noise or other possible disruptions (like a slight vibration from someone jumping from the bunk), I highly advise avoiding connecting cabins.

Alot of times you can book a balcony obstructed at the same price or lower on the Regal.

Not sure what cruise you are looking at.

 


We’ve had similar experiences on Royal-Class ships & sometimes decided an obstructed view balcony cabin was worthwhile for us even if slightly more than an interior.
 

We particularly enjoyed the midship obstructed view balconies where the only obstruction was looking down on the open Promenade deck (2nd photo) but no obstruction looking out. Those cabins in the bumped out midship area also have larger balconies than the standard 9’x4’ balconies. Some are concerned about people on the Lido deck Skywalk being able to look down on their balconies however that wasn’t a concern for us on the lower Emerald deck (8). The last photo shows the lifeboat obstructions for Emerald deck obstructed view balconies.

My friend and his wife stayed in this cabin and told me he loved it. (Inside Sideways Cabin on the Caribe deck C323).

He only books inside cabins and BTW he has been on over 140 Princess Cruises. Every time I was on a cruise with him he was the most traveled passenger.

I love the sideways insides, great cabins!  Some have mentioned the door opening into the main area but I travel alone, not an issue.  I also agree the obstructed balcony price for Emerald deck, good pricing and the mid-ship ones not really obstructed.

 

I like mid-ship on Emerald on Royal class ships, because I don't use buffet area, spend most time on decks, 5, 6, 7.  Being up high by pools, buffet isn't important.  I try not to use elevators, another reason I prefer to be no higher than deck 10.  I want to keep the number of stairs I have to do at one time under 75.

If I book an inside stateroom,  prefer the "sideways" cabins too.  I enjoyed Caribe 328 on the Royal Princess - it seemed more spacious. Since entry door is right there in bedroom I could here the crew preparing to service cabins in the a.m.  Didn't bother me too much since I like to get up early.  Mid-forward, decks 10-11, or 12 (Aloha is my favorite deck) are good for me...I'm in the Spa, Enclave and Casino a lot - so I want to be close to that far forward staircase.
