Princess Needs to Follow Holland America Bathrooms

Recommended Posts

The newer (2016 )  Holland America  Koningsdam  bathroom(balcony)  has   a decent sized walk in glass shower with a metal foot rest & a removable shower head (not stationary) . The glass is also the new spot free type .Thus ,no spots after drying  .There is also a clothes line  Holland has gotten a lot of  praises  for their design of their cabins 

 

 The 4  Soltice class ships of  Celebrity have convex  shower stalls  giving more room for a comfortable shower 

 

   The showers on Princess ships are far too small  .Soap the walls & spin  is their design LOL

Glass shower enclosures are a terrible safety hazard.

I know a surgeon who had a glass shower enclosure shatter on his hand.

 

Princess has clothes lines.

The cabin bathroom on the Nieuw Statendam was my favorite thing about the entire ship. Princess should consider bigger showers.

Ain't happening anytime soon. Can you imagine the cost to refit 17 plus ships.

I think maybe the OP meant that Princess should consider this design for the showers in their ships still to be built.

Yeah I agree.

Aside from the surgeon who had a glass shower door shatter on his hand (?!), I would say that the vast majority of people would much prefer a shower door to a clinging curtain, especially in a shower as small as those on Princess.

All the other cruiselines I’ve been on have glass doors.  Far superior to that moldy, smelly shower curtain.  Those curtains smell rancid at least 75% of the time, at least to me, and I request to have a fresh one on those occasions.

On all the cruises I have been on it’s been the curtain. I think I would prefer no curtain and a glass enclosure.

Our last 4 cruises have been on HAL's Pinnacle class ships - Koningsdam and Nieuw Statendam.  They have great bathrooms with large glass showers.  We loved them.  Next year we have another Princess cruise booked,  and we are not looking forward to going back to the clingy shower curtain in the tiny shower.

I am not sure that the "glass" wall of the new showers on HAL is actually glass.  I think it is more likely plexiglass.

 

The comment of a previous of poster that the Princess showers are "soap the walls" and spin caused a chuckle from this recent Coral Princess guest.  Had not considered that bathing technique!

The showers on Royal and Regal are larger than older Princess ships and do have a ledge that works well for leg shaving and also works as a shelf, it does however still have a curtain.

I have stopped sailing new HAL ships because no bath tub any more... I only book Princess mini... love a bath tub.

 

 

So I don't want Princess to follow HAL.

A larger shower with glass doors instead of the butt hugging shower curtain would be great.  Maybe a good time to reevaluate HAL.

All cruise lines need to get away from bath tubs. 

Ain’t that the truth.

What’s not to understand; a bathtub on a moving vessel is a danger.

Agreed...sailed on  NS in January of this year and was thrilled with the bathrooms (and quality of the food). If HAL can provide this type of quality, so can Princess if they are motivated.

Assuming total cabin size does not increase, a larger shower will mean less space somewhere else in the cabin.

 

Which part of the cabin should be smaller so that the shower can be larger?

How could you miss it? It's a standard joke from almost every comedian on Princess.:classic_ninja:
