- For each category we will list the sub categories. Unless noted the only difference between the sub categories is usually price and location on the ship.
Princess uses the stateroom type and location for its category codes. The following letters are used for stateroom type: M=Mini Suite, D=Deluxe Balcony, B=Balcony, O=Oceanview, I=Interior. The location code is A to F for standard cabins with A being the most desirable location. 1 to 6 for premium cabins with 1 being the more desirable location. U to Z for obstructed staterooms with U being the more desirable location.
As an example MA stands for a Mini Suite (M=Mini Suite) in a prime location (A=Most desired location - midship, quiet location).
You can expect between 3560 to 4272 passengers on a typical sailing. This means that at the higher number (usually peak and holiday sailings) Royal Princess III has a space ratio of 33.4 . (A space ratio less than 33 means that you may find the ship crowded in areas. A space ratio greater than 39 means that there should be plenty of space for each passenger.) When this ship isn't sailing at capacity the space ratio can be as good as 40.1.
The Royal Princess III has 1350 crew members on board. There are 3 passengers for every crew member on board. There are no self serve laundromats on this cruise ship.
The ship last major refurbishment was in Oct 2016 .
There are 18 decks on this ship. The highest deck number is 19. The number of decks with passenger cabins is 8.
The following ships share the same class as this ship. This means the basic design and layout of the ship is the same. For the most part the cabins will be identical among these ships, but may be decorated differently.

2014 - Regal Princess
2017 - Majestic Princess
There are 39 special needs cabins on this ship. These cabins have been modified for accessibility purposes.
The Royal Princess III is a new class for Princess. The new ship design has come under fire from critics because it lacks features found in older model ships. For example the promenade deck does not circle the ship. There are no midship stairs on all decks. There is no aft pool. The main pool is small for the size of the ship. Princess also did away with the Explorers Lounge on this ship. However the Piazza is much larger and the Retreat area has been expanded.
During Oct 2016 drydock stairs were added from the aft of Lido deck to aft of Sun deck. Crew stairs in center of ship were converted to passenger stairs.
