With Princess Cruises you have plenty of choice when it comes to family-friendly staterooms, ranging from luxury to value options. For great value there are the three and four berth inside and outside staterooms, though you have to remember these cabins consist of pull down beds, meaning a twin bed option is available but a king size configuration is not. The balcony cabins usually consist of a king/twin bed option and a double sofa bed. This is usually suitable for adults, though sometimes cabins can involve pullman beds so it is always worth double checking with your cruise specialist at the time of booking.
You can also choose from a variety of interconnecting cabins which are usually two cabins of the same grade, so inside to inside or balcony to balcony. To book interconnecting cabins an adult is required to be booked into each stateroom and they are often booked up very quickly during school holiday periods.
