We loved our cabin. It was so spacious. A king sized bed and two side-type benches to put things on or under. A desk on one side of the cabin with a little table and one chair on the other side. Built in shelves and drawers on both sides, a little refrigerator with drinks to purchase, a small shower, separate commode and tiny vanity. I brought a over-the-door shoe hanger (recommended by a cruise critic) which I used to place my toiletries, meds, comb/brush, sprays, etc. in. Wow that worked out great because there is no real vanity in the bath area to store things. We did not lack for space. Surprise!!! I brought magnetic hooks to post my dailies, etc. on the walls (another great tip). Nice size closet with safe. We didn't want for anything at all.

Could be better by capitalmom
Nice room, well laid out but it is really really loud with noise from the theatre. I also disliked being so close to the front of the ship as it is the least stable.  Read entire member review.
8138 Great Cabin, Nice large Window. Very easy location to access the ship. I have nothing but positives from this Cabin and would use it again if available. we had the 2 beds put together as 1 big bed. This room has a bunk bed folded up on 1 wall but it is not in the way while it is folded up, also had a rolling cot under one of our beds, so the room could sleep 4 although that would be a bit crowded. This room is perfect for 2 or even 3 travellers. There was a strange banging sound durring rough seas, almost like a hatch was not fully closed above the room (on the outside of the ship). Front desk was willing to relocate us, but the banging did stop so we stayed in the room and enjoyed our 7 day cruise!  Read entire member review.
Beautiful Bermuda by auntiekiki

Our room was clean and pleasant. A bit tired. The comforter and sheets were comfortable and we slept pretty well (except the night the seas were rough, but that is mother nature.)

Why can't they add plugs to the rooms? One is just not enough.

Great location in quiet corner of the ship. Very quiet, lovely view, good service.  Read entire member review.

Adequate room, plenty of storage, no comfortable chair in the cabin. The bunk on the wall limited my husband's access to the bed - he had to crawl up from the bottom rather than enter at the side. The sliding door to the toilet is a real pain - literally - we both scraped our arms on the metal edges going in/out of the toilet room. The Bow location is noisy in the morning if the ship anchors or uses it's thrusters, and noisy in the afternoon/evening due to the Showroom location just below. We chose it because we like to feel the motion of the ship, and with the Force 11 winds and 18 ft seas near Sydney, the ship really moved!

I don't know what cabin category we were in but it was an aft, unobstructed view outside cabin. First of all, the bathroom is the nicest I have ever seen on a ship. I loved it and my husband did too. The size of the bathroom compromised the size of the cabin, but it was worth it. At first impression, the cabin looked too small, but it was very functional. For the two of us, it was fine; but it would have been impossible to add another person. We take turns getting out of bed and getting dressed (my dh gets up earlier than I do) so it worked fine for us. The closet space was very small but again, it worked for us and was functional. In spite of taking too many clothes - many more than I used - we found a place for everything. The bed was fine for us, but it may have had an extra pad on it because I have read where others thought it was hard. The walls are very thin. We were lucky that our neighbors did not snore or talk loud because others said they had problems. Our location was great. Aft deck 8. Make sure your cabin is not under The Spinaker lounge because you can hear the boom boom boom of the music and that is a VERY active lounge, A lot of fun stuff goes on there pretty late at night. WE were happy with our cabin but it was just lucky that our neighbors were quiet. We tried to keep our tv low and be considerate of others. There were no children in our area. I loved the magnifying glass which I have never seen before.  Read entire member review.
Great Family Cruise by Redrobin23

We had 2 joining cabins, 8656 and 8658, which was great for us, 3 kids in one room and husband and I in the other. Plenty of room for storage and the bathroom and showers were very large considering. Beds were comfortable and hardly any noise from theater below at all. Only heard noise 2 nights from a bar crawl that was going by, we weren't too far from stair/elevator area. But other than that, quiet relaxing rooms. And having a bathroom in each room was very helpful for a family of 5. Mark, our cabin steward kept room cleans and was always friendly whenever we saw him.

NCL Dawn to Bermuda by rosebud210
Our cabin was an ocean view. We had an obstructed view and the ocean could only be seen through a rescue boat hanging outside our window. We were unaware of how obstructed it was when making the reservation.  Read entire member review.
First Timer Impressions by new2cruisex2

We were surprized to see how large the room was. (aft picture window view). My expectation was much less so the room and the comfort was great with nothing else to compare to. The room was up to date and the bed linens were very comfortable. There was pleanty of storage space. The only issue I had was the soap and shampoo dispensers. Would have liked to see higher end aminities.
