When are you cruising? We'll be on the CB in just over 2 weeks. We have a balcony cabin on the Caribe deck. I was really hoping for a mini-suite on the Dolphin deck but have been told that we'll like the balcony much better on Caribe - they're half-covered (not totally exposed like those on the Dolphin) and larger from what I hear. I'll post a trip report when we return!
I think you'll be happier in a Caribe cabin rather than the Dolphin. I heard more people voice their dislike for their Dolphin balconies. Aloha and Baja balconies are covered but the Caribe and Dolphin ppl can look up into the balconies. IMHO, I would rather have a mini-suite on the Emerald deck, below the Dolphin. The balconies are private.

We had 2 adjoining bal on Baja, they where ok, I don't like the fact that you can look down on people and they can look down on you. But i'm not a big fan of CP. Hope you have great weather and a great trip.
I just wanted to let you all know that we just got off the 2/25/06 sailing we had an inside cabin on the lideo deck. Great location right off the pools and horzion court buffet and the trident grill. We love this ship, it was a fabulous cruise, the entertainment was the best, and the food was perfect. We couldn't of asked for anything better, it was such a relaxing cruise had no problems of any kind, except an emergency evacuation of a patient that needed surgery. Hats off to Princess, as they did a great job getting it all under control, for the hellcopter to evacuate the patient they also kept us all informed about the patient.
I must tell you all that we will book this same cruise again, as it was the best and the ship is beautiful and in great shape!!
who paid u 2 say that. True the Caribe Deck is better than the rest. I'm n my 30's but I felt like I was in the "Cacoon" movie. I am still young at heart but love classy and fun things. Ihear the steakhouse was ok. thanx
The balcony is humungoid. 9' x 9'. Yeah I measured. Room enough for four chairs and two small tables, has a glass wall, and is half covered. The room is a nice size with something of a walkin closet. Bathroom is pretty small though.
I too have issues with the ship/cruise from when we were on it last Sept. but the balcony and room cant be beat. By far the best in that price range I've had yet on any ship. You'll have to weigh that against any other issues you may potentially have.
I posted here about our general experience after getting back.
