Default Plaza Deck

We are going to Alaska in June and wondered if anyone has had a room on the Plaza deck on the Star Princess, or any other Princess ship? It's outside and has a window, not a porthole. Any comment would be really appreciated.

Great location close to all the ship's official business! Cruised on that deck numerous times on various Princess ships.

Thank you, Captain. I was beginning to worry a bit that it might be "not quite right" as we have some good friends going with us on their first cruise and I really want it to be a good experience for them, as well as us. So it's not too noisey or anything being close to the public areas?

If you can get a cabin forward of the "Plaza", that's great! It's nice walking out of your cabin in the evening all dressed up and you make your way across the "Plaza", elegantly walking up the "Grand" staircase where all the formal portraits are taken, also the "Plaza" area is where Princess has that famous Champagne Fountain Party.........it's also the spot where they ususally have the Captain's welcome aboard stint. I guess you can call it the Town Hall of the ship! Only time it gets a bit noisy is when when there are activities being held there, other than that, it's dead quiet! Plaza deck forward is one of my favorite locations for a cabin.
Just my opinion.

Captain

I agree 100% with the Captain. Plaza deck is our absolute favorite, for all the reasons stated above. You will love it! Have no fear.

Have a great cruise,

Ken
