Pacific Princess Best & Worst Staterooms: Summary
Best Cabins on  the Pacific Princess are staterooms on Deck 7.
Cabins to be wary of on the Pacific Princess are staterooms on Decks 4, 6, and 8.

Deck-by-Deck Breakdown of the Best and Worst Cabins on the Pacific Princess

Deck 3

Ocean View Staterooms on Deck 3 of the Pacific Princess are going to be fairly quiet. Generally, most of the cabins have Deck 4 cabins above, which buffers noise from public areas. The public areas above the the few staterooms farther aft are not as rule noisy places, such as might be the case with a bar featuring live music and dancing.

  • There are only 15 staterooms on Deck 3 of the Pacific Princess.
  • Of these, only four don't have cabins above them, but the Pacific Princess reception area directly above 3025- 3031 is not likely to present noise issues.
  • Starboard, Ocean View Stateroom 3031 is near the tender boat. There could be noise from this as a result.

Deck 4

***CruiseAdvice.org Warning ***
Some cabins on this deck with potential problems.

While Deck 4 cabins on the Pacific Princess do have public areas above them, these staterooms are well situated to avoid most of the noise issues which can stem from being under lively places at night such as the forward lounge that dancing, and the casino.

  • The Ocean View Staterooms that are in a relatively quiet area are 4046- 4056 port side and 4045- 4055 starboard.
  • Forward on Deck 4 of the Pacific Princess, Ocean View Staterooms 4000- 4014 port side and 4001- 4017 are under the Cabaret Lounge. Noise until late into the evening could be problematic in these cabins. If you are light sleeper, you may prefer to find a cabin elsewhere on the ship, bring earplugs, or invest in a wave machine (a sound device available at a specialty retailer like Brookstone -- produces pleasant sounds that can wipe out the unpleasant sounds).
  • Ocean View Staterooms 4020- 4042 port side and 4023- 4041 starboard, and Interior Stateroom 4035 are under the general area of the casino. Noise could be an issue in any of these staterooms, but Interior Stateroom 4035 could be especially noisy. Again, light sleepers who desire inside cabins may wish to locate one on another deck on the Pacific Princess.
  • Ocean View Staterooms 4024 and 4026 port side and 4027 and 4029 starboard have the tender boat areas beneath them. Noise when the tender boats are busy could be issues in these staterooms.
  • Port side, Ocean View Staterooms 4020- 4044 and (starboard) 4023- 4043 are over the casino. Noise until late in the evening could be an issue in any of these cabins.
  • Staterooms 4052, 4056, and 4035 are designated as wheelchair accessible.
  • Some of the worst cabins on board the Pacific Princess are on Deck 4. While we are not suggesting the staterooms on this deck should be completely avoided, there are staterooms on other decks which will be more quiet.

Deck 6

***CruiseAdvice.org Warning ***
Some cabins on this deck with potential problems.

Staterooms on Deck 6 of the Pacific Princess have the main drag of Deck 5 directly beneath, so there could be noise from some of the public areas even into the wee hours. That said, many of the cabins have been situated away from the noisier venues and it is possible to find comfortable accommodations that afford peace and quiet.

  • Forward on Deck 6, Penthouse Suites 6002 and 6003 each have up to 756 sq. ft. including the balcony on the Pacific Princess. We do caution that, unless there is a tailwind, these balconies are going to have very breezy views of the ocean.
  • Between the Penthouse Suites, Balcony Staterooms 6000 and 6001 have forward facing balconies. 
  • Forward, Ocean View Staterooms 6004 and 6005 have roughly 30 sq. ft. more interior space than average! These staterooms also interconnect with the Penthouse Suites.
  • Ocean View Staterooms 6004- 6028 port side and 6005- 6031 starboard are over the Cabaret Lounge. Noise late into the evening could be problematic in any of these cabins.
  • Ocean View Stateroom 6036 port side and 6037- 6045 starboard are over the general vicinity of the casino. Noise late into the evening might disrupt sleep in any of these cabins, but 6036 is especially vulnerable.
  • Ocean View Staterooms 6046- 6056 port side and 6047- 6059 starboard are in a relatively quiet area on Deck 6 of the Pacific Princess.
  • 6058- 6090 port side and 6061- 6093 are over the Club Bar, the Club Restaurant, and the galley. Noise could be issues in any of these staterooms.
  • Aft, 6088 and 6091 are Owner's Suites. Each will provide up to 932 sq.ft. including the balconies, and will have superb aft views!
  • Between the aft Owner's Suites, Balcony Staterooms 6090 and 6093 will also have beautiful views of the ocean.
  • Some of the worst cabins on board the Pacific Princess are on Deck 6. While we are not suggesting the cabins on this deck should be completely avoided, there are staterooms on other decks which will be more quiet.

Deck 7

***CruiseAdvice.org Favorite Deck ***
Highly rated by our cruise experts!

Deck 7 of the Pacific Princess is the only one with cabin decks above and beneath that buffer noises from public areas. Staterooms and suites on Deck 7 are likely to be more quiet than most of the others to be found on this ship! Some of the best cabins on the Pacific Princess are on Deck 7! In our opinion, this is the best cabin deck on the Pacific Princess!

  • Forward on Deck 7, Penthouse Suites 7004 and 7005 each have up to 756 sq. ft. including the balcony on the Pacific Princess. We do caution that, unless there is a tailwind, these balconies are going to have very breezy views of the ocean.
  • Between the Penthouse Suites, Balcony Staterooms 7000 and 7001 have forward facing balconies.
  • Ocean View staterooms 7006 and 7007 do not have balconies, but have more square footage than average.
  • There are ten inside staterooms on Deck 7 of the Pacific Princess, and this is going to be a nice, quiet neighborhood! If this is your preference, we do recommend most of the interior cabins here.
  • Interior Staterooms 7068 and 7011 share walls with the Self Service Laundry. Noise and heat could be concerns in these cabins when the laundry is busy.
  • Balcony Staterooms 7076 and 7079 are across the halls from the Self Service Laundry. When this area is busy, noise could be problematic.
  • There are several Balcony Staterooms (7008- 7112 port side and 7009- 7117 starboard) on Deck 7 of the Pacific Princess!
  • With up to 932 sq. ft. including the balcony, each Owner's Suite (7114 and 7119) is the most luxurious accommodation on Deck 7 of the Pacific Princess. Each has that highly sought (less breezy) aft view of the ocean!
  • Aft, Balcony Staterooms 7116 and 7121 are between the Owners Suites and have that same majestic ocean view!

Deck 8

***CruiseAdvice.org Warning ***
Some cabins on this deck with potential problems.

On the Pacific Princess, Deck 8 offers plenty of mini-suites, and two aft facing Owner's Suites. However, several of these accommodations are located under the Fitness Center, the pool, open decks with sunbathing lounges, and the Panorama Buffet. All of these public venues are busy areas, so it could be noisy in these cabins as a result.

  • There are several Mini Suites from which to choose on Deck 8 of the Pacific Princess (8000- 8022 and 8026- 8062 port side and 8001- 8025 and 8029- 8065 starboard). Each of these has 322 sq. ft. including the balcony.
  • Past guests in 8000 have indicated that there was a smell of cigarette smoke in this cabin that came from the staff door area right by this cabin. This issue was resolved in the cabin, but the smell remained in the hallway. Also, noise from this staff door area was a concern.
  • Forward on Deck 8 of the Pacific Princess, Mini Suites 8000 and 8002 port side are in a relatively quiet area, because the internet cafe on Deck 9 is directly above.
  • Mini Suites 8004 and 8006 are beneath public bathrooms. Noise -such as hearing water rush through pipes-  could be issues in these suites.
  • Forward, the Deck 8 starboard suites 8001 and 8003 are under the Fitness Center. Noise when this facility is open could be a concern in any of these staterooms.
  • Starboard, 8005 is beneath a small public bathroom and a staff service area. Noise could be a problem in this suite as a result.
  • Mini Suites 8044 and 8046 are designated as wheelchair accessible.
  • Least recommended staterooms on Deck 8 of the Pacific Princess are the Interior Staterooms (8012, 8015, 8014, 8017, 8028, 8031, 8034, 8037, 8036, and 8039). All of these staterooms are directly below busy venues to include the pool and the Panorama Buffet. Noise issues could be a concern in any of these cabins.
  • The accommodations with balconies that are under the pool, the open decks, and the Panorama Buffet on Deck 8 of the Pacific Princess are 8006- 8066 port side and 8007- 8069 starboard. Noise could be a problem in any of these suites as a result.
  • Aft, Owners Suites 8064 and 8067 are the most spacious accommodations on Deck 8 of the Pacific Princess, and have majestic (less breezy) views of the ocean.
  • Two balcony suites, 8066 and 8069, are nestled between the Owners Suites. They will have that beautiful aft ocean view and be near incredible service!
