Crown Princess cabins are decorated in a classic, neutral color palette of taupe, cream, green and gold. During a 2018 refurbishment, all the carpeting in the rooms was refreshed and all cabins were outfitted with the line's Princess Luxury Bed. The comfortable mattresses (some passengers describe them as “cloud-like”) combined with ultra-soft sheets and pillows added up to a truly restful night's sleep.
Standard cabins feature two twin beds that can be pushed together to form one queen-sized bed, two bedside tables with drawers and table lamps, and a vanity/desk and chair, with a wall-mounted hair dryer and phone. The recent refurbishment also added large, flat-screen TVs in every room. Near the TV, there's a small cabinet housing a mini-fridge, and there's also a small table.
Storage in the closet area is above average for a cruise ship, with large, open closets with ample hangers and lots of storage space overhead, even in interior rooms. You'll also find a safe in the closet area.
Bathrooms all have showers with curtains and wall-mounted shampoo and soap dispensers (no conditioner), plus a retractable drying line. There are several toiletry shelves along both sides of the bathroom mirror, toilet and sink. You can request to use complimentary waffle-weave cotton bathrobes and slippers during your voyage. Stateroom attendants leave behind chocolates on your pillow during evening turn-down (no towel animals), and you can request fresh fruit, as well.
We loved the comfortable beds and felt the rooms were a decent size -- and in particular, we were surprised by the amount of closet space for a standard-sized stateroom. The only negative was a lack of outlets for charging phones and other devices: There's just one at the desk and one in the bathroom.
There are 31 accessible cabins, as well as two family suites with balconies, which are the only adjoining cabins available on Crown Princess.
Interior: There are 436 interior staterooms on Crown Princess measuring 160 square feet, and they sleep two to four passengers. Select staterooms can accommodate a third or four person with pull-down beds, murphy beds, sofa beds or rollaways. Interior cabins include an additional chair for seating. Bathrooms include showers only -- no bathtubs.
Oceanview: Crown Princess offers 222 ocean-view staterooms, ranging from 158 to 182 square feet. These cabins sleep two to four people, and offer the same layout and amenities as interior rooms, just with a window overlooking the ocean and no mirror over the bed.
Balcony: Balcony cabins on Crown Princess (there are approximately 677) offer 168 square feet of interior space, in addition to a 46-square-foot balcony area, with two chairs and a small circular table. Balconies have glass-paneled railings overlooking the ocean. Bear in mind that due to the tiered deck configuration and the position of the navigation bridge, which juts out on both sides of the ship, most of the balconies along the sides of the ships do not offer complete privacy.
Club Class Mini-suite: Mini-suites (there are 168) measure 277 square feet, with a standard 46-square-foot balcony (a few have an oversized balcony). You'll enjoy footrests on the balcony, and an inside seating area with couch, coffee table and a flat-screen TV (there's a second TV facing the bed). Bathrooms also include a bathtub/shower combination. Passengers staying in Club Class also have exclusive access to the Club Class dining room for dinner.
Suite: The 26 suites onboard Crown Princess average a spacious 329 square feet, each with a 166-square-foot balcony, sleeping up to four people. Suites offer a separate sitting area with a sofa bed, two flat-screen TVs, a wet bar and walk-in-closet. The roomy bathroom includes a separate bathtub and shower stall. The balcony includes upgraded loungers.
Cruisers staying in full suites have access to complimentary laundry and use of the Lotus Spa Thermal Suite (offering saunas, heated stone chairs and shower facilities), plus a one-time complimentary mini-bar setup and use of an exclusive disembarkation lounge. Other perks include an exclusive breakfast (with a free mimosa) at Sabatini's restaurant every day, and complimentary hors d'oeuvres later in the day. Suite passengers can also request in-room afternoon tea or canapes in the evenings. There's also a dedicated guest services line for those staying in suites throughout the cruise.
Suites mainly differ from each other based on the size of balcony available. For example, Vista Suites measure 329 square feet with a 166-square-foot balcony. Premium Suites are 304 square feet, with a 169-square-foot balcony. The Penthouse Suite is 381 square feet with a 155-square-foot balcony. And the Owner Suite is 411 square feet and includes a 180-square-foot balcony.
The Family Suite measures 335 square feet, can sleep up to six, and comprises a mini-suite plus an interior stateroom that are connected together, each with two queen beds or two twins, plus a large living room with two sofa beds and a 92-square-foot balcony. The suite includes two bathrooms, one with a tub/shower combination, and one with a standalone shower, plus two TVs.
