Princess Seaways Cabins

When it comes to cabins there are not that many options to choose from on Princess Seaways.

Commodore cabin

Princess Seaways offers just two types of cabins to choose between - Seaways Class and Commodore Class.

Seaways Class

Available as a budget inside option or as a sea view option, Seaways Class cabins are the most economical choice onboard.

Bunk beds mean the cabin can accommodate up to four passengers. The cabins come with all the necessary bedding and towels. There is a small table and a wardrobe which is handy for stowing your luggage away, which is handy given the limited floor space. The cabins are also en-suite with a compact shower, toilet, and small sink.

Seaways Class cabins are basic, but that reflects in the price. These cabins are popular with those looking for a budget sailing from all walks of life. They are particularly popular with students, families with young children, pensioners and regular travellers.

Commodore Class

The Commodore Class cabins offer more space than the Seaways grade, plus a few more amenities.

You still get a small table and a wardrobe, bedding, towels, and an en-suite shower room. The differences between Seaways and Commodore classes are that you also get a range of amenities such as soap, shampoo, body lotion and a vanity kit. There is also a hair-dryer fitted too.

In the cabin there is a flat screen television with a range of TV channels, including a stream from a camera mounted to the front of the vessel - this offers an alternative view on top of your sea view window.

A complimentary mini bar is available in the cabin, with a selection of bottled waters, cans of soft drink, cans of beer and bottles of wine.

The price also includes a buffet breakfast (worth £9.50pp at the time of writing).

This type of cabin is typically booked by those travelling as a couple or as a party of three, or with those looking for a few creature comforts. These cabins do cost more, but they come with more space, more amenities, and an inclusive breakfast and mini-bar.

Onboard Princess Seaways there are two choices of Commodore cabin, but they all have double beds. The cabins accommodating three passengers includes a pull-out sofa bed.

Commodore Class Cabin Review

I stayed in a Commodore Class cabin with a double bed. It was spacious and comfortable if a little dark. The sea view (during daylight) was a nice addition.

The bathroom featured a space-saving sliding door and was as compact as I expected. The rough sea on the outbound sailing ensured I made good use of this.

The television was a welcomed feature, as was the mini bar. Breakfast was delicious too.

The disappointing aspect, compared to Commodore cabins on King Seaways, is the lack of a dedicated lounge. I missed having access to this sanctuary.

  • Variety of cabins
  • Comfort and cleanliness
  • Noise insulation


Who needs a bewildering choice of cabins anyway? On Princess Seaways the choice is simply between Seaways or Commodore class. Job done!

David first found his sea legs on a cruise around the Caribbean in 2009. Since then he's looked for any excuse to get back on the water which led him onto creating Mini Cruise Reviews as a way to showcase short min breaks that sail from the UK (on ferries or cruise ships).
