Balcony Stateroom Cabins 166 Reviews
These mid-ship staterooms can accommodate up to three guests, with two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed and a convertible sofa to sleep one more. They include a sitting area and floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open to a private balcony. And because they are mid-ship, you'll have easy access to all of the exciting options on board.

Cabin 0012 Balcony cabin below fitness room. Quiet cabin other than the working out going on during the day. Little to no hallway noise. Very little drawer space. Nice to have the tiny fridge. Excellent location for being near everything!  Read entire member review.

Size okay for 2 adults. Some noise from the running feet around the pool deck. View is awesome. Would never go back to a non-balcony room.  Read entire member review.

Compact but comfortable balcony cabin with sufficient storage space and available mini fridge  Read entire member review.

This stateroom was very nicely located midship. I walked out of my door and a turn left to just a few steps away from the hall leading to the glass panoramic elevator along the atrium. The cabin was well apportioned with all the niceties and necessities. Including a mini fridge, a safe, and robes. My only complaint would be that the pool deck is right above. So if you sleep with the balcony door open, as I do...then you will hear the crew setting up the pool lounge chairs around 6am. The lulling sounds of the waves against the ship was a fair trade for the occasional bump above.  Read entire member review.

Balcony room was great. The room was clean and there was plenty of closet space. The bathroom was small but efficient. We had plenty of towels for the bathroom and for the beach. It was really great to have the balcony to open up and to sit out on.  Read entire member review.

Very small but clean. Bathroom is extremely small. A little noisy at times, could hear people talking and coming in late.  Read entire member review.

Balcony for 3 people. Impossible to get to balcony when tiny couch is open for bedding. Bathroom ok but toilet seats are very old and dingy and scratched up. No lotions, soaps, etc. As always, the fridge was full of their bar stuff. T.V. was full of their advertisements on at least 4 channels. T.V. was a tiny old old t.v..not even 19 inches. They need new pillows (ripped, dust mite infested as my allergies acted up horribly), bed was fine, slept fine beside the pillows.  Read entire member review.

Great Time on the Sky!!!! by luvitwhencruisin
Small cabin, little drawer space, bathroom is tiny as is shower.....but all are adequate. Hallway was quiet, balcony was clean and enjoyable.  Read entire member review.
0076
adequately sized room for a short cruise with bright decor, comfortable bedding, clean & efficient lavatory with shower, spacious balcony, tv with plenty of channel selections, stocked refrigerator, constantly replenished ice bucket, courtesy fruit basket upon request, loaner bathrobes in closet, in-room electronic safe, & three small in-closet drawers with additional storage space in the two nightstands. Can hear periodic scraping of chairs from Garden Cafe aft deck area above cabin, usually in the morning around breakfast time then later in the evening when staff tidying up.  Read entire member review.
0205
Balcony cabin, forward, starboard side, deck 10. Quiet because it was directly under the spa and not too near an elevator. Boat movement/rocking not an issue for us. Closet & drawers were ample for a 4-day trip (stuck our suitcases under the bed). Could not open closet and bathroom doors at the same time! Bed was way too hard; could use extra padding; nice to have extra pillows. Comfortable chairs on deck -- I believe we had the newer (mesh) ones. Safe was adequate size, but would not fit a laptop, fyi. Decent supplies in bathroom: shampoo, conditioner, lotion, body wash. Hair dryer in desk drawer, tho' of poor quality. Liked that we had robes in the closet; sad we couldn't take them home :-)  Read entire member review.

Pleasant Surprise by Emeraldgal
Decent sized closet. Could hear the parties at night though since we were on deck 10 and all of the activity was on deck 11.  Read entire member review.
0219
Great location...near the forward elevators, but not close enough to be noisy.  Like all the non-aft balcony cabins on this ship, my cabin (0219) was tiny, tiny, tiny.  The lack of double floor to ceiling glass doors made the tiny cabin feel even smaller.  I wouldn't travel in this ship again unless I could get an aft balcony cabinthey have double glass doors.   Read entire member review.

Tiny room, worn out. Clean. Should not have gotten room directly below the main pool deck. Could not sleep the night of the White Hot party.  Read entire member review.

For me, the balcony stateroom was ideal....we were mid-ship so close to everything. Being able to walk out onto our own balcony made my cruise!! Loved it!  Read entire member review.

Very clean and tiny and much bigger then we had imagined (but still small). Balcony was a nice feature. Stayed on deck 10 so we had beautiful views.  Read entire member review.
0232
We were on the starboard side this afforded great views of the islands we were also on the 10th floor mid ship. we had the noise of the music especially thee booming bass of the music from the pool right above us. would not choose this area again our room was 0232 the ship was kept very clean and dishes in the hall were cleaned up quickly also the dishes and glasses left around the pool were cleaned up quickly too  Read entire member review.

We had a balcony room and thought it was adequate for the amount of time we spent in the room. Our room steward was great and always gave us excellent service. We were on the deck below the outdoor cafe and pool but didnt notice alot of noise or anything.  Read entire member review.

0254
Adequate, not too big, not too small closet. Location was quiet. Dresser drawers were small. The safe was kind of confusing to use, but it worked. The bathroom had lots of shelf space for my things and was of a decent size. The shower did not have a place for bar soap to rest without falling off. It was also, of course, very skinny so don't expect much of a place to put your leg for shaving. The balcony was a good size. We had plenty of room for the 2 of us. The door took some trickery to open the first time and we had to call for help, but after that we had no problem. The bed was fine.  Read entire member review.

Loved it! by cincele
We had balcony 1027 and loved it, especially the big round window next to the balcony door. We were able to shut the drapes at night and it blocked the light so completely, we slept in very late. The mini bar is a great asset and we emptied it and used it for our own stuff. The bed was perfect with very soft sheets and nice pillows. I had heard the showers were tiny, and I am not a small person, but I found it very adequate in size and everything was very clean. Not many drawers but plenty of closet space and lots of hangars. I could hear a very distant boom boom from music near the pool but it didn't bother us in the least. It is a cruise, after all. The service was impeccable with fresh ice and cleaning twice a day. It was a great cabin!  Read entire member review.

Cabin 9024 - excellent location but a small bathroom. Carpets, drapes and furniture do show some wear.  Read entire member review.

We had a guaranteed balcony and we could not have picked a better stateroom ourselves! There was no noise above, below, outside or next to our stateroom It was bigger than what we were expecting. The fridge was such a bonus! I hope you never decide to take them out. The outside balcony is perfect for two people. The shower is a great size also. What I am saying I guess is that everything was perfect! THANK YOU NCL SKY!You made our first cruise a memory not soon to be forgotten.  Read entire member review.

Our Wonderful Trip on the SKY! by AerynSun_JohnCrighton
Not enough draws and clothes space. Also... when sofa pulled out to bed, no walking room to get to balcony except to climb over the person sleeping on sofa bed. Like I mentioned... I think NCL needs to do a curfew of teens w/ out supervision late at night. They were out of control.  Read entire member review.

Happy in the Bahamas by umpiresmom
Tiny bathroom , small shower  Read entire member review.
9034
Cabin 9034. This is a balcony cabin in the BC category on the Fjord Deck (deck 9). It was okay for three people but would be better suited for just two. When the sofa bed it out it cuts off access to the balcony. The stewards never closed it up. We had to climb over it to get to the balcony. We had to fold it up partway to get into the fridge (we had them empty everything out and we had our own sodas in it). The shower is basically circular and very small. Water pressure was amazing! It is in a quiet location across from some crew space.  Read entire member review.

LOVED the Sky! by Jenfaith4
Small cabin, dirty carpet, but GREAT balcony! Awesome room stewards that kept our room clean! Comfy bed and pillows. More bathroom space and drawer space could be added! The lack of electrical outlets made for charging electronics an obstacle!  Read entire member review.

Definitely splurge for the balcony. Do this every time you cruise.  Read entire member review.

Good trip by brdrawn
The bathroom is smaller than I have had on previous cruises but it does the job. Average storage space. The balcony is HUGE compared to what we had on the Carnival Fantasy and we really enjoyed spending our time here. We were however not very happy with the actual bedding. The mattress in our room was super hard and honestly felt like you were sleeping on a board with a thin layer of padding over it. The sleeping pillows were thin and not very comfortable. There were also 2 extra pillows in shams that were too hard and thick to use as sleeping pillows. If you are a light sleeper beware, they constantly play elevator type music quietly in the halls and at times you can hear it in your room ... which kept me awake on several occasions.  Read entire member review.
9225
Cabin 9225...very small closets, not enough space for two people to fully unpack. The bathroom is the smallest I've every seen. The balcony was wonderful, it could have been better with a glass front as opposes to the bars, but the mats kept the floor on the balcony dry at all times.  Read entire member review.
9226
Closet door to safe sticks at the top and you have to open the door next to it and bang it open. Close to central elevators.  Read entire member review.
9226
Surprisingly efficient use of space. NCL really makes the most of their cabins, utilizing every square inch of space for storage or organization. Only bad points.. the lights over the bed are EXACTLY where you want to rest your head when sitting up reading, meaning you will hit them many times, and there is only ONE outlet in the entire room (so if you and your partner use your smartphone for pictures and need to charge it nightly.. you'll have to sort out a schedule for charging).  Read entire member review.
9229
The cabin is really small for the category. It was big enough for a short 4 night cruise for 2 people but could never hold 3 people or clothes enough for a longer cruise. We were glad that our third person could not come along because we would never have fit into the room.  Read entire member review.
9232
Balcony room and wonderfully sized closets with more than ample hangers. Recommend as others have said to bring an extra bar of soap. Everything else was just wonderful in the room. Balcony was spacious for two people to relax and and enjoyed numerous cigars out there.  Read entire member review.
9235
Stateroom 9235 was a great mid-ship balcony cabin. Very quiet. There are only three small drawers for storage, so if you have many clothes, this may be too small. Plenty of hanging space and probably 20 wooden hangers.  Read entire member review.

Very small room with very little storage. The bathroom was extremely small. I did enjoy our balcony. The air didn't work very well. The beds were way too firm for my taste and had to ask for extra blankets.  Read entire member review.

Pleasantly surprised by littleducknj
The balcony was great. We left the door open overnight to hear the sea and have the sea breeze. Room was tiny, but well appointed. The shampoo's, etc. were top rate as well as samples of the spa products. Could use more than one towel per person, though. But when we asked we got extras. Bed was comfortable,linens were of fine quality. The cabin was near both the stairs and elevator. TV ok, more choices would be nice.  Read entire member review.

Good Winter Get Away by LAWTONCRUISE
Cabin was usual, stewards were nice and did a great job. Beds were hard, used the big square pillow under the mattress to raise the head for easier sleeping.  Read entire member review.
9252
Our room was around 200 square feet including the balcony - however we feel that having the balcony really opened up our room and made it look/feel bigger. The decorations were extremely tacky, pink/blue plaid curtains and watercolor paintings on the walls. The TV was probably around 15" - but it was an old school - not at all an HDTV (but who watches TV while cruising anyways...) The closet was small -but it was expected, the location was prime: not too far from the elevators, but not to close to them as to hear all the chattering and people walking around.  Read entire member review.
9252
We were in 9252, starboard side balcony. Me being 6'6" and my son 6'4" it was tight but no real problems. Our steward was polite and our room was always taken care of. 2 towel animals, one on Sat, one on Sun. We didn't fully unpack. Not much room to do so. No biggy for a 3 dayer.  Read entire member review.

Party Boat by Pitch26

The luggage was outside the room when we got there at 4pm to prepare for the drill. Usually the cabin steward will greet you and ask if you need anything during your stay. I always give them some money to ensure they are responsive to my needs - usually $25. This on top of the daily mandatory $12 fee for the staff. We never saw the steward at all during the 3.5 days on board so he/she missed out on an extra tip. Our room was cleaned daily and we even found animals on the bed nightly made with the towels which is always a nice surprise. I booked a balcony room mid to aft section of the boat. You feel less motion in this area and most of the dining rooms and show areas are in the back of the boat so this was convenient. You learn where the best rooms are on these boats after being on a few. The room was small but that is to be expected. My fiance who isn't a large person couldn't believe the size of the shower. He kept seeing big people on board and asking how on earth they use that shower as the curtain was all over him while showering and he is small.

Nice balcony. It had a flatscreen tv unlike many other rooms.It had some horrible paintings in there that were somewhat terrifying and NOT something you'd expect in a cabin. (I think they were paintings of hispanic people with down syndrome playing guitars and painting. It was really bad.)

Screws were coming out of the door frame.
