smaller then we expected, very quiet, nicely located.  Read entire member review.
10012

10012- were worried about wave motion being so far forward, but no problems. Room was clean and well cared for, no visible signs of wear. Storage was well designed and accommodated all our stuff well. Closet was of a good size, and had lots of hangers, which was appreciated. Bed was large and comfortable (king size, I think, definitely larger than queen.) Personally, I would have preferred a smaller bed, it would have given us more cabin space, but that's just my personal preference. Shower was bigger than most cruise ships, with sliding door, and a retractable clothesline (which we used). 2 outlets in main cabin, 3rd outlet above mirror in bathroom (said "for razor only"). Individually switchable reading lights on each side of bed (nice!), as well as other good lighting throughout cabin. Balcony was nice, 2 chairs, with room for 2 more if desired (took chair and stool out of room when viewing glaciers for more seating). Nice!

Disappointing by Lscruiser
Tiny stateroom. You could not walk around the end of the beds without bumping the walls and feet of anyone sleeping. Balcony door whistled and when we complained we were told "if you closed it properly I would not do that." Finally when we persisted, the maintenance person discovered a bent lock that was preventing the door from closing properly. Only 2 outlets in the entire stateroom. Nice refrigerator but it was filled with "mini-bar" products. No coffee maker. Excellent bathroom - best I've ever seen on a cruise ship.  Read entire member review.

Mighty fine cruise by CruiseLunatic
Well appointed Cabin (10022) A bit smaller than some other lines, but not a show stopper by any means. There is a refrigerator, stocked, with a bit of room for personal items. TV, Balcony (with 2 chairs and small table), Toilet and shower area both have sliding glass doors. In room safe. One full length closet and a number of shelves. Bedside stands are just that and have no drawers or such. There is a 2 cup coffee maker in the room as well. I would suggest bottled water for a good cup. Bed is for two and there is a small couch that makes into a bed.  Read entire member review.

Our cabin (10022) was quiet. We never heard any noise in the hallways nor from our neighbors. In fact, housekeeping was using the vacuum cleaner in the hallway and we didn't hear it until we opened our door to leave the cabin. The cabin was small but we had a balcony.  Read entire member review.
10038
BA is a 215 sq ft stateroom with 2 twin beds together as a king. Very comfortable sleeping. Too hot & humid for balcony door to be opened & AC worked great. Towel animals every night. No choclates on pillows anymore. Water boiler instead of coffeemaker with instant coffee offered. Bathroom has shower with dispenser of shampoo & shower gel, then center is sink with hand soap dispenser & to the far left is toilet with sliding glass door. So using the toilet while someone is in shower is fine. Sliding glass doors make privacy. Closet with sheving for storage. TV has 3 drawers for clothes and the hair dryer is left of closet with mirror and small wooden shelf for makeup. Mini bar that steward will clar our for you to use as fridge with safe atop it.  Read entire member review.

Room 10038 (Starboard Balcony) Location convenient to elevators serving Garden Buffet, Spinnaker Lounge, Poolside. Quiet except for one late night neighbor party. View of pier in Port Canaveral and Nassua. Sun rises on way back to NY. Beautiful early morning view of NYC skyline coming back into port.  Read entire member review.

NCL not so Grand by FLATLINE13
Good middle cabin without the extra charge. Never felt the Sea. Quite, no public rooms around. Newer room,ship (10/2011). T.V. is small and no (well some) programming,bring a DVD player.  Read entire member review.
10044

My Cabin was 10044 great location. large bathroom and room. Very clean. The view from the balcony was fantastic... The seals were on our side when we got to Sawyers Glaciers... there also were whales sightings on my side of the ship. It was chilly at night so too cold to sit out but lots of room if we did.

Good size. Room under bed for suitcases. Like the bathroom layout. Sink in middle, shower on one side and toilet on the other. Husband is 6'2" and it worked fine for him.

The cabin we had was on Deck 10,aft of midship, locatred about halfway between teh midship and aft elevator banks. It was in a quiet section of the ships. It was large enough for the two of us. It had a sofa-bed, which we didn't use, and the two single beds weer oushed together to make one queen size bed. The bed itself was very comfortable. We had a kettle and a supply of instant coffee adn teabags along with creamers and sugar/sugar substitute. These were replenished when used. It also had a mini-bar fridge which we didn'yuse and we never use them. Our cabin was kept spotlessly cleaned by our attendants. Fresh towels were supplied daily on request.  Read entire member review.

Stateroom 10132 - decent size room with balcony that is perfect for two people. Lots of closet and drawer space. Small desk/work area was nice for our laptop. Sofa for 2, not very comfortable, but who spends any time there anyway...?  Read entire member review.

It was okay by Umbarger

A lovely larger cabin with ample storage and drawer space. The shower was kind of small by handicapped standards. Bathroom flooded as is the norm for handicapped cabins. The balcony has a ramp but the ramp is so big it takes up all the spare room in the cabin. As with all handicapped cabins please only book this cabin if you are disabled.

Last cabin starboard side on deck 10. Smaller cabin width wise by 6-10". Odd, but it was noticible. VERY quiet, little "foot traffic". Love the balcony.  Read entire member review.

10506 - it's so close to the front of the ship that there's practically no traffic in the hallway! Secluded but not at a secluded price. The stateroom was tiny and the floor under the bed wasn't so clean. But we wouldn't have noticed if we hadn't been cramming the suitcases under it. We took extra plastic hangers which came in handy. But there was plenty of room for 2 adults who packed everything from parkas to bathing suits. By the way, we didn't need the parkas. The bathroom was tiny but fine. We got in the habit of showering in the spa so didn't use the stateroom's shower as much as we would have otherwise. This cabin being at the front is just an easy 2 flights down from the spa and fitness center. And it's just outside the spa and fitness center that you'll find the pools. We took a powerstrip and plugged it into the desk outlet and set it on the top shelf after we moved the coffee maker to the closet since we didn't need it. The perch of the shelf made a handy place for charging all our cameras and notebooks. Having the balcony was great. Waved at the crew on the bridge a time or two. If you want to watch the piers while the ship is docked, stay on the starboard side. Port side usually faced the water except in Victoria. This was fine with us though.  Read entire member review.

Cabins were very small, we were up front on deck 10 and the seas were so rough and we were going so fast the first couple of days. It was slamming down the waves and up the next wave and really BAD  Read entire member review.
10528
Good location, one of the cheaper cabins on deck 10 forward of mid ship, opposite the forward lift towers. Quiet room however and balcony useful. Liked the cabin position and definitely better than aft position when ship on the move at speed. Bathroom very small - be warned if you are tall or large! Bed a decent kingsize double. TV old fashioned and small. In cabin bar expensive.  Read entire member review.

We were in cabin 10628. No noise from above/below. Perfect room w/deck. Lots of storage space. Relatively small bathroom, but functional.  Read entire member review.
10642
Cabin 10642 is a handicapped cabin which is very well equipped. Even though it is located near the elevators/stairs, it was very quiet.  Read entire member review.
10642
We had a handicap room. It was spacious enough to house the scooter, while still giving us ample room to move about the cabin. The bathroom was large and easy to move around. It could use another shelf or two in the bathroom, but the storage areas in the cabin itself were aplenty!  Read entire member review.
10644
We actually had great rooms on the 10th fl. Hallways quiet and there were a lot of children and spring breakers aboard.  Read entire member review.

Disability by luigipasta
Spacious and thoughtfully well laid out beyond expectations. Though close to the elevators, noise was never a problem. Ease of wheelchair access onto the balcony was fairly easy.  Read entire member review.
10652
Balcony is nice. It would have been nicer if we could have used the adjoining balcony as we had the adjoining room. The bathroom sink was too big for the bathroom. The faucet is too big as well. If the basin was smaller you would be able to fit in better. The drain in the shower is very, very slow.  Read entire member review.
10656
Bathroom too small. Knees hit the wall when you sit on the toilet. Had to open door to be able to fully extend arms to towel off from the shower. Shower door is great. Could use a few more shelves in the bathroom. Closet ample space. Like the combination safe. Bed area a bit tight but manageable  Read entire member review.

NCL Hits a New Low by psudadx3
The cabin had some pluses and some minuses. The shower was a definite plus but that was offset by no leg room on the toilet (I usually went to a public restroom). The "couch" was so hard you couldn't sit on it for very long. Storage was adequate except in the bathroom, and the TV was AWFUL. I hate the hangers in the closets and was surprised of the lack of pen and pencil by the phone.  Read entire member review.

Excellent First Cruise! by 40thbdaycruz
I can't begin to rave enough about Norman, our room steward. He was a joy to interact with anytime we ran into him. The towel animals at turn down just made our nights. Every detail was always perfect. (He was leaving for his 3 months off and then going on the Norwegian Sky) We chose a Balcony Stateroom located in the beginning of the Starboard AFT section. Absolutely loved it! There was ample space after tucking away a small stool and adding an over the door shoe organizer to the outside of the bathroom door. There was plenty of room in the closet, drawers, and on shelves to unpack and store 4 suitcases full of stuff. (We know better now LOL). Then they all fit just perfect under the bed, even the huge one. The bed was two put together to make a queen. There was a big lump going down the middle that made it a bit uncomfortable to snuggle. If we each stayed on our own side it was very comfortable. The linens were of good quality. Another good thing is that there was no foot board on the bed so it allowed my my 6ft tall husband to stretch out. We spent a fair amount of time in the room and on the balcony. The room will accommodate 3 adults but it really would be too small if you enjoy taking advantage of room service or spending any time on the balcony or in the stateroom. If the third person is a small child that could sleep on the sofa without opening it, the room would also work. It was perfect for my husband and I. This will be the stateroom location I will always look for first if not the exact same room. The bathroom was also ample after adding the shoe organizer. (Thank you Cruise Critic members for that AWESOME tip! It is in my suitcase for next year.)The shower and toilet have glass sliding doors and the sink and vanity are conveniently located in the middle with a few small shelves and a large well lit mirror. There is a pull out clothes line in the shower. I brought clothes pins to hang our bathing suites after the spa each day. The toilet area was the only area that felt at all cramped, but it was fine overall.  Read entire member review.

Good sized stateroom for 2 people. Well-appointed with a great bathroom and wonderful amenities. Enouhg closet space, drawers and shelves. The stateroom, in my opinion, is not the main reason for taking a cruise; it is for sleeping, showering and changing clothes.   Read entire member review.

10538 - smaller than I have seen on other cruise ships. Bathroom was exceptionally tiny. Hardly any drawer space for clothing. Had to put a couple pieces of furniture on the balcony in order to have room to walk around in the room. Quiet and comfortable.  Read entire member review.

First Time Cruisers by Gcjcruisers
Cabins were adequate in size. We were on deck 10 Aft section and it was a very quiet section. The balcony were large enough to accommodate two people comfortably. The bed was very comfortable, having had a broken back, bed comfort is very important. Slept better in this bed than I did in the one I have at home. Bathrooms were actually larger than I had imagined, the toilet area was a little cramped but overall it had more than enough room. I was amazed at how quiet the rooms were. When you flush the toilet you'll understand why.  Read entire member review.
