Favorite Cabin on Princess and Why

Since I have only been on one Princess cruise it would have to be E-303 on Grand Princess. It is a partially obstructed view cabin which is wheelchair accessable. We were upgraded last minute from an inside cabin so the partial obstruction didn't bother us one bit. The wheelhouse of the lifeboat was not in front of our window so we could look straignt out over the top of the boat. Because of the wheelchair access the cabin was HUGE. Almost twice the size of regular cabins.

We prefer a midship balcony on Caribe Deck. We like the 1/2 covered 1/2 open balcony and they are really large. We're booked on the Island Princess on Oct. 21st and are in C620. It's aft not midship but it's a wheelchair accessible room so it's HUGE compared to a normal cabin so were excited to try something different.

Found the following run down online:

Dawn, Ocean, Sea, and Sun Princess "Outside cabins 222 to 237, 311 to 314, and 712 to 749 on the Dolphin Deck have huge windows that are almost three times larger than those in comparable cabins. Another good choice, if you don't want to pay extra for a veranda, is the Baja Deck's foremost cabins (B206 to B225), which are a very short walk from a deck area that's almost always empty."

Grand Princess "Cabins 752 and 753 on Caribe are corner balcony rooms at the stern - on a vessel this big, you needn't worry about motion. Their triple-exposure views are a photographer's dream, yet they cost thousands less per person than the larger premium suites next door."

On the flip side, we had a forward Lido deck balcony cabin on the Grand that I dubbed the "cabin from hell" - it was a BA class cabin, situated directly under the treadmills and from 7AM to 10 PM everything vibrated with the thumping and bumping from the fitness center. To be fair, my husband, who is far less noise sensitive than I am, loved this cabin because it was so close to everything, and from our balcony, we could see into the bridge and watch the crew working.
I agree on the large windows on the Sun Princess. Back in 2005 we were scheduled to sail for ten days in two inside cabins. A few days before leaving, our TA said that Princess had offered to upgrade us both to OV cabins near the front of the ship. When I looked at the deck plans and saw how forward they were, I asked if there were any OVs available nearer the midship or aft. We were given D717 and D723 on the Dolphin Deck. When we boarded the ship and walked down the halls I saw into several of the other cabins. The windows were small and ours were so large. Luck of the draw! It was a terrific upgrade for us.

Aloha - A422 Emerald Princess - small balcony
Caribe - C422 Caribbean Princess - larger balcony (preferred this one even though its a lower deck)
We liked the above cabins because they are close to the panoramic lifts and most amenities.

Dolphin - D318 Sea Princess - outside - was ok but wouldn't do that again unless desperate as a balcony is definitely preferrable!

We're not bothered about suites as they seem pointless - even if you can easily afford them (unless you get a free upgrade of course :) )!!

I am telling Sunflower about this and then watch the beatings begin!!!


Our favorite is any "AD" mini-suite on Emerald Deck on the Grand Class ships. Big room, large bathroom and tub but best of all the only mini-suites with fully covered balconies!!!

You guys are out of luck. SunFlower doesn't beat me (anymore). She decided long ago that I'm a lost cause and she's given up all attempts at reformation ......

We have had C304 on the Grand twice. Grantes its a disabled cabin, but its a great mid ship loation and the Caribe deck big balcony can't be beat.

We also like the James Cook suite that is down the hall from C304. We have a little chuckle each time we pass it. A good friend of ours is named Jim Cook. Oddly enough the grumpy guy who answered the door was not Jim.
