Default Cabin Help - Crown Caribe or Dolpin ?

We're booked on the Crown Princess and presently have C702 on the Caribe deck which is towards the aft but on the side. I saw tonight that there is D734 on the Dolphin deck which is at the VERY back of the ship looking backwards.

Question: I know the balconies are larger on both, with the Dolphin's being even larger than the Caribe's, but which is the better location?

Thanks in advance everyone. Since there's only this one left on the Dolphin in this category, if I'm going to change I'll need to do this straight away so anyone in the know, please let me know!

The Caribe deck balconies are more appealing I think . They are larger, and have a partially covered portion, and partially open.

The Dolphin Deck balconies are open to above.


I'd stay where you are.

The better location is D734. However, being on deck 17 aft many nights last November looking at the ships wake, there is a vibration at the back while the vessel is in motion, so for that reason, you may want to stay on the Caribe Deck, which is prime property to many I've spoken with.
We were in D715 (1 deck below the Caribe) and felt the vibration of the thrusters when they were manuvering the ship into port, so you may feel that in C702, but it is livable. That was my wakeup call most mornings.

We actually made the switch to D734 so hopefully the extra vibration will be in the form of lulling us to sleep at night! That big big balcony should be a bit of a compensation too I would say.
