CABIN and storage

Cabin 30 feet x 8.5 feet.
a large cupboard (double width) with 5 shelves
Large hanging space , no doors
4 small drawers and 1 small cupoard near the bed

0hHis cabin is very long and narrow and rather like living in a tunnel. Seperate sitting area with 3 seat settee, bed, chair and coffee table, kettle and tea/ coffee making facilities re supplied.
It also benefits from 2 TVs , one facing the bed ands one facing the seating area. Though whether you could have both on , on different channels and still have good audio for each viewer was one experiment too far for me.

The cabin does however come with some "goodies"

Special touches:-
Mineral water on arrival, Luxurious pamper pack,
Bathrobe and slippers, Atlas and binoculars,
Flowers, champagne and chocolates on arrival, Fruit bowl,
Canapes once a week and a selection of magazines.
Size: Approx 317 square feet (including balcony)

Tea & coffe making facilities




BATHROOM

Bathroom 6 feet x 5.5 feet. fitted with a bath with shower over. Nothing more than a standard bathroom (NO IMAGE , SORRY)

BALCONY

completely over looked from above.
2 chairs,2 footstools, small coffee table

THe major drawback to this type of cabin is that the balcony, although an acceptable size, is completely overloked from above, having no roof area at all

The completly overlooked D deck balconies are uppermost in this view from deck 14

also in the picture are the C deck balconies (twice the size of our balcony, The balconies with the gent holding an umbrella) showing the outer (open) half . They do have an equal area under cover .

Apart from the décor its identical to the one on the Grand Princess that we had. Grand Princess Cat AC Mini Suite D716 (from 2009 pre refit)

I know is basically the same hull/ship but you would have thought the interiors would at least been different. :shock:

I'm a bit confused? (Nothing unusual there!), but there seems to be two televisions. One facing the bed and one facing the sofa area?

Yes I recognised the cabin layout too W. Like you we were on D.deck and Princess do call it a mini-suite. :roll:

We had previously had a Balcony cabin on C.deck (with the bigger balconies) but, for us, the extra space in the Mini Suite was worth the loss of balcony space. :)
