The cruise line seperates the different categories (Inside, Oceanview, Balcony) into subcategories. The only difference in the subcategories is usually location on the ship. The detail above shows subcategory color, category name, and subcategory name. For detailed information, mouse over a cabin on the deck plans and a pop up window will appear. You will find diagrams, pictures and information about that cabin category including square footage and features.

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).

The following is a listing of all the cabins we have pictures or videos for on this deck for this ship and also on the sister ships.

Deck: 8 - Emerald
* Balconies on this ship tend to be narrow. If you are interested in larger balconies consider those located midship where the shape of the balcony varies.
* Cabins E206 to E228 on the port side and E207 to E229 on the starboard side are above the main theater and may experience noise during rehersals and shows.
* The balconies of cabins E101 to E109 on the starboard side and E102 to E110 on the port side are extra large. You can see straight down to the sea from the railing. However there is a metal wall up to the railing which will restrict the view when sitting down or from the cabin. These balconies are also open to view by the cabins above and offer no shelter in the case of rain.
* All other balconies on the starboard and the portside of the ship will have obstructed views (deck, lifeboat) when looking straight down. The lifeboats from the deck below will go up to the height of the railing on the balcony.
* Cabins E712 to the aft and E711 to the aft area above a lounge on the deck below and there may be noise from that area during shows and activities in that lounge.
* Cabins E512 to E524 are above Princess Live and may have noise issues from there during activities in that location.
* Due to fail in design of the ship, there are no central staircases for passengers. Cabins located around the midship elevators may find those elevators busy and therefore difficult to get to other floors. (UPDATE: MIDSHIP CREW STAIRS HAVE BEEN CONVERTED TO PASSENGER STAIRS)
* Aft facing balconies are open to view from deck above and vary in size. The largest aft facing balconies are on Marina, Riviera,and Dolphin decks. The smallest aft facing balconies are on Aloha and Caribe decks. Baja and Dolphin aft balconies are partially covered.
* There is a self service laundry room on this deck. It is best to avoid the cabins directly near this room as there tends to be traffic and noise related to the use of the laundry room.
* Cabins that face the aft of the ship have had reports of soot issues. Soot can be a issue depending on wind and weather.
