I agree with f-mattox that a family of three would be more comfortable in a mini-suite. I speak from experience... our son is a young teen. We were in a BA cabin on Diamond Princess (different ship, cabins pretty much the same) and it was tight as there was no sitting area. That huge balcony was wonderful, and became my refuge!

For our subsequent Princess booking, we selected a mini-suite. The cabin is much larger, still has the huge balcony, and would have given me much-needed privacy within the cabin.

I wouldn't be concerned about the uncovered balconies -- that's JMO, though. When we had our BA on Caribe Deck, we could see the mini-suite balconies below ONLY if we went to the rail and looked down. Everyone was respectful, for the most part.
Happy cruising!

My biggest worry is about the foot traffic and noise from the Lido deck above our Riviera deck cabin. After talking to a Princess employee, she said that the aft cabin in the Dolphin deck was wonderful and whatever we do, not to get a cabin on the Riviera deck because all they get are complaints about the noise. Of course, now we have a Riviera cabin booked, and I am concerned that it was a bad pick. I do like that it is close to the pools, MUTS, buffets, especially since my teen will be heading there every day.

Has anyone stayed on the Riviera deck? Is it as bad as she warned?

After planning all this time, I want us to be happy once we get there.

Thanks again!
We cruised on the Caribbean Princess in Sept 2006. About a week before the cruise we were upgraded from an outside on one of the lower decks to a balcony cabin on the Riviera deck. It was port side about half way from aft to mid-ship and we never heard any noise. It was a great location.
We are currently booked on the Emerald Princess for New Years, on the Riviera deck.

That is great to hear. It does seem like a good location, being close to everything.
