Inside Stateroom

Whilst inside cabins often get the unfair rep of being reserved for the penny pinchers, inside cabins with Princess Cruises offer you everything you need and more for the entirety of your cruise.

Interior rooms are small, but mighty, sleeping two to four people and help you save extra cash meaning you can opt to spend your money in the speciality restaurants or the spa instead, to name only a few examples.

If you are travelling as a family, don’t think that you can’t choose an inside stateroom as some of these cabins feature two extra Pullman beds which come down from the ceiling, sleeping a family of four easily.

Oceanview cabins give you that all-important glimpse to your next port of call, or those iconic never-ending sea views, whilst remaining an affordable option.

And you can either opt for a porthole or a spacious picture window so you can still enjoy the views that a balcony possesses.

Whether you are travelling with a friend or as a couple, you are covered as the bed in this room can either be arranged as a Queen or two twin beds – in fact, all staterooms with Princess can be arranged in these two ways.

The expanse of your room measuring between 146 to 206 square feet and you will enjoy the same interior features as an inside room, so wake up and switch your flat-screen tv on to see the itinerary of the day, before climbing out of your high-thread count linens and picking your outfit of the day out of your spacious closet.
