Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The food, service and entertainment was awesome. This was our fourth time on the Royal Princess. We enjoyed our table mates.

We had the misfortune of purchasing a balcony at the very back of the ship. We had large amounts of thick black soot on the balcony, furniture and railings each day. We were unable to use it before cleaning it with wash clothes. My clothes got ruined as I sat on the chair before realizes how black it was.

I do not recommend any rooms in the back of the ship. All rooms back there had the same issue! We were moved to another room with a much smaller balcony after the fifth day.

Cabin / Stateroom Please see above! Please do not book anyone in this room! The room was beautiful however the black soot that was bestowed upon us each day was terrible!

There are no midship stairs! Long waits for elevators!
