Tiniest toilet space ever!! Uncomfortable toilet space; nose up to the wall! Sink faucet just a trickle. Can hear the splashing of waves outside cabin 5014 at nighttime sleeping.  Read entire member review.
First NCL Cruise by CruisingFans

Great location which is aft and right by the elevator. We were worried it may be noisy, but was the quietest cabin we have ever had. Very convenient to the theatre (one floor up) and the open deck and buffet, as well as the casino. This OV cabin is small, especially the bathroom, but has plenty of storage area. Beds are comfortable.

Best vacation ever by shamrockkim814
Ocean view cabin. Thought it was more than fine for what we were using it for.  Read entire member review.
Cabin 5026. Close to elevators. Anchor noise can be bothersome to people who sleep in. Pull down bunk for 3rd occupancy.  Read entire member review.
We actually were in two different staterooms on this cruise due to noise issues which I will explain later. Our first room, 5608, was mid-ship, port side and at the end of a dead end hallway. These oceanview staterooms are of average size and well designed for storage space. I usually overpack and travel with numerous pairs of shoes and jewelry and was able to find places for all the stuff I brought. The bathrooms on this ship in the Oceanview category are the largest of any we have experienced. Showers are large and have sliding doors to alleviate the inevitable blowing shower curtain that is usually so annoying. Separate toilet, shower and sink areas make it easier for the bath to be used by more than one person at a time, particularly helpful for a family or sigles traveling together. Stateroom 5608 is only two doors away from an entrance to the crews quarters and there was continual noise noticable in the hallways(billiards, music, laughing)but it was not noticeable once inside the stateroom. However, noises outside our window were indeed a huge issue from the day 1. We awoke the first morning to what sounded like metal hammering sounds that lasted for over an hour. It happened again on the second day and then again the second night when the noise was somewhat different but nonetheless annoying. A crew member was sent and unable to determine the source of the noises. On the third day the morning noises were again noticeable and persisted for quite some time enabling a crew member to visit and actually hear the banging himself. Again, no source was dicovered and we were offered a move to another stateroom, which being three decks higher was considered an upgrade even though the room configurations was exactly the same inside. That was appreciated but of course entailed our time to repack, move and unpack all over again. This probably took up about 3 additional hours of our on-ship time after an already exhausting day in port and no additional compensation for our inconvenience was even offered! The second room, 8514, was acceptable but right above the anchor near the bow of the ship which also brought with it noise issues when porting and leaving. Thankfully, for the most part, these were during waking hours and did not really cause issue.  Read entire member review.
I was in an outside cabin on 5. Space was excellent for one person. Bathroom was larger than most. Closet and drawer space was ample.  Read entire member review.
STATEROOM: The room was small. The AC was perfectly working. The bathroom was also small. The toilet has a door but you have to be a pretty skinny person to be comfortable without leaving it open. Our room steward and assistant were great. They always kept us with a supply of 2 bottles of water as asked. And, of course, those towel animals.  Read entire member review.

Room was nice although a bit small. Bathroom was well designed but tiny. We did have some constant engine "hum" which was more noticeable at night and did affect sleeping.l I would probably choose a different location in future. The advantage of the location though was the proximity to O'Sheehan's where we spent a lot of time.

We were in an Ocean View Category OC on deck 5. This cabin did not disappoint. There was tons of storage. It was quiet and we loved the location. We did not have to take the elevator everywhere. We just walked up one flight of stairs and were at the Stardust Theater and the casino and Bar City. Walk up two flights and we were in the Atrium with the shops, lounges and service desk. I actually loved deck five. I did not think I would ever say that considering we stayed in the Deluxe Owners Suite once and an Aft Penthouse twice, but I really loved the location. The picture window was large and the cabin was bright. The location made for a smooth ride with a bumpy ride for a couple of hours. The only down side was on disembarkation day it was a little noisy from below, I would imagine from moving around luggage, etc. although I'm not exactly sure the reason. Other than that I would stay in this cabin category in this location again without hesitation.  Read entire member review.
