Aft cabin caution by lovethatdirtywater
Tight quarters for two people to move about. Beware the droppage onto your balcony!  Read entire member review.
Great shower, small toilet (for a 6ft 7in. Baby giant!), immaculately clean, shame it's a CRT TV!  Read entire member review.
Small bathroom, Good location  Read entire member review.
Super Jade by Ray Singleton
Our balcony cabin was first class and the best we have experienced on all of our cruises. The balcony afforded great views, plenty of room for the 2 of use and great to leave the large sliding glass doors open at night and sample the fresh air, great for helping to sleep to. The bathroom was roomy and included a walk in shower which had loads of space. I guess you would call the toilet area compact. Not a problem to us though, after all, how much time do you spend in there. Our cabin was situated forward of midships. It was very quiet, no noise from the bars or ships engines, in fact very tranquil  Read entire member review.
Good position with nice balcony. Cabin was adequate, kept clean with sufficient storage space. Would have liked better lighting especially over the dressing table area and also a bedside table on both sides of the bed. Very happy to have the coffee maker. Old style TV was fine for us as we don't watch it apart from ship information and occasionaly the news!! Bathroom was very small, especially the toilet cubicle. This could be improved without great cost by removing part of the wall between the toilet and washing area. That would make drying yourself after showering much easier. Always plenty of hot water and good water pressure. Bathroom products, although in dispensers, were of a decent quality.  Read entire member review.
BA9068 - quiet location, toilet a little on the small size and could be a problem for a large person but the rest of bathroom ok. We had a wonderful cabin steward called Dinesh.  Read entire member review.

Great but skint by Andrew Price
Balcony perfect, living space adequate, bathroom on the small side, overall good  Read entire member review.
Getting on the ship, I was very surprised at how beautifully appointed it was. I don't really know what I was expecting, but my expectations were blown out of the water. Our room was either bigger or arranged in such a way that it seemed bigger than we have had on other ships. We were in a balcony stateroom. What surprised me (and elated my wife) the most was the size of the shower. Norwegian has figured out a way to fit an almost normal sized shower into a stateroom bathroom. I was impressed. The room was nice other than that. Storage was good, nice use of mirrors to help increase the illusion of more space. TV was a bit older, but that is generally to be expected. They had a pretty good movie selection, but only one channel in english for the movies. Not that big of a deal though, considering the limited amount of time that you watch movies in your room during a cruise.  Read entire member review.
Our first cruise by theinternationals
We were in cabin 9100 BA we had a balcony and the room is pretty much in the middle of the ship so we could get to everything pretty easy. Even though we had the elevator right in front it never got loud. Bring extra clothes hangers because there aren't enough and the ones they have are the big wooden ones that take up all the closet space. I took them out and just used ours. There was plenty of space under the bed to store all of our luggage. The steward came twice a day to lower a bed that was in the ceiling for one of our children the other slept on the pull out couch. The steward had it all done every night and morning despite our wacky schedule of coming and going.  Read entire member review.
Mediterranean Wonder by yodasmom1148
Cabin was small but met our needs. The balcony was a must for this cruise. We heard very little noise and we were mid ship near the elevators. We heard nothing from the cabins on either side of us. The bed was comfortable. We overpacked so there was limited room for luggage. This was our fault. You live and learn.  Read entire member review.
Busy, busy, busy by sandybee
Cabin was fine, enough room to take everything, Toilet a bit on the small side, shower great and balcony was a nice place to relax.  Read entire member review.
Mahalo Norwegian Jade by CruzinFamilyof5
Starboard balcony 9118 was a good location in almost all ports, near elevators at both ends of buffet on 12th floor and the kid's club. Our 2nd cabin, 9121, was a sideways cabin which appeared larger. You can have the bathroom or closet doors open without interfering with the cabin door.  Read entire member review.
Mid ship and perfectly located to elevator/stairs. Nicely sized room with a fabulously comfortable bed. Balcony was nicely sized and good chairs but suites have MUCH nicer furniture both inside and out! Need to update to flat screens and also provide a menu to access the movie schedules on your tv instead of coming into the middle/end of them.  Read entire member review.

Very well maintained cabin.

The balcony was great. We had a quiet location, great view. We could have used a litle more desk time room.  Read entire member review.
Typical balcony cabin. Port side cabin gave us welcome coastal views throughout the trip. A bit cramped but with sufficient storage space. Toilet seat was broken when we boarded. Fixed within an hour. However, we had to live with a noisy shower the whole trip; reported repeatedly but never attended to. Not a trainsmash - more irritating than anything else.  Read entire member review.
great location easy access to all the main areas, very nice balcony, nice sized cabin  Read entire member review.

Our cabin was located midships and was ideal for ease of access to the main atrium, Garden cafe and Blue Lagoon Bistro. It was just right for our needs in terms of space, cupboard space and comfort. The bed (Queen sized) was very comfortable. The balcony was a pleasure to sit at day & night and again had ample space. The cabin was continuously kept pristine by the cabin steward and he certainly earn his service charge in providing a sufficient service to our needs. The only thing we would say was out of all the staff on the ship he was the least friendly hardly spoke a word and never smiled. That being said it was a great experience to get the famous towel animals and all were kept as a growing zoo throughout our cruise.
The TV system was a little limited and it was rather annoying to have to tune in to one channel just to hear the majority of the ships announcements especially if you couldn't find the remote. Desk space was a little limited for writing/ make up etc but the bathroom was superb. again clean and functional throughout our stay. The cruise newsletter delivered daily provided ample information on the day's activities, weather and excursion tips.

Great balcony, midships so quite stable.  Read entire member review.
On a positive note, the double bed in our balcony stateroom was huge [bigger than our king size at home] and comfortable. We enjoyed sitting out and reading on the balcony when the sun was out but, as we were able to make use of the balcony on only two days of our 9 days cruise because of the weather, we did wonder if we should have just booked an oceanview stateroom instead. On a negative note, the lavatory in the bathroom is a tight squeeze to get in and out. And when you are sitting down, your knees are in toching distance with the wall - and we are not big people! There is only a 14 inch CRT TV which is adequate if you just want to watch the BBC World news whilst sitting on the sofa but not if you want to watch a film whilst in bed. Anyway, in this day and age, you would have thought NCL would have larger flat screen tvs. Also, although there is a coffee maker with sachets of coffee for coffee drinkers, there is no kettle for tea drinkers, although tea bags were provided. Obviously, you would not want to make tea in a coffee maker.  Read entire member review.

Don't Panic! by ajb1605
9626 - balcony cabin aft; between two stairwells/lifts, and nice and quiet without being too far from anywhere. Very impressive storage for a smallish space; adequate bathroom/shower; very comfy bed; nice little dressing table and perfectly fine sized balcony.  Read entire member review.
Lots of storage bins, drawers, etc. Bathroom had 3 sections (toilet; sink; shower) which is great, plus a large, moveable faucet in sink (easier to hand wash some clothes). Shower stall has a clothesline. Two USA electric plugs. One European plug. Coffee pot and refrigerator in cabin. Fridge stocked as a mini bar. We only purchased one item. Cabin is just slightly forward of mid-ships. Very convenient for getting around. Room very quiet, but balcony could be noisy if our neighbors were also on their balcony at same time. Cabin has a safe, that comes in handy for passports and cash. Hair dryer was great, lots of power, did not need my own.  Read entire member review.
Disappointed by COLIN SENIOR
Outside with balcony. Rooms are small and spotless but the balcony made up for it. Nice to sit outside in the sun with your morning coffee. Tidy bathroom with a great shower. Friends had an inside cabin ---dark! They spent most of the time outside it. We were happy to use the balcony. Very useful to have tea and coffee making facility.  Read entire member review.

10058 and 10060. Quiet location, nice balconies, easy to get to elevators. Smooth sailing...

Too many kids!! by Waldorf

Winter Cruise by connorfam
average size room, needs 3pin sockets for uk passengers  Read entire member review.
Ocean balcony was quite nice .. have to say, one of the highlights of the trip with given the variety of stops. Stayed in our room > 1/2 time on the ship. Was a double bed .. 2 singles put togther but more comfortable than expected. Had a couch, desk table and chair. Bathroom had a nice size shower and the toilet area had a slide door. TV was fairly small but didn't really use it much .. read, sat on balcony all hours of night and day.  Read entire member review.

Room 10076 was excellent--quiet, nice balcony, good closet space, plenty of

room for 2 people.

Terrible cruise by tqvirgo
Being in the middle of the ship put us VERY far from common areas and elevators. Was also where all the smoke from the cabins seemed to linger the worts. Could here our neighbours tv and having sex. If you have hip or knee issues, the bed will kill bad.  Read entire member review.

Room was in excellent location. Midship, 2 doors down from elevator with no noise from hallway at all. Only issue I have is people seem to talk very loudly, so sometimes balcony was unusable for me. Even though it was starboard due to nature of itinerary, we had land views and port views.

Good size and location - midship and handy to the elevator. Quiet. Less organized storage space than an outside cabin but the pleasure of a balcony to offset storage.  Read entire member review.
Great balcony, just aft of midship so close but not too close to elevators. Quiet hallway. Lots of storage in closet, three good-sized drawers and several cubbies. Luggage fits under bed for additional storeage. Bathroom very nice sized.  Read entire member review.

The stateroom was kept perfectly clean by our steward, June. This cabin is in a great location, as it is the last cabin on the starboard side, towards the aft. Very quiet, as there is only one cabin adjacent to it and essentially nobody passing by the door. Although in the aft, there was no movement to speak of, even in Gale Force 8 winds!

More than acceptable. We recommend it.

Very small quarter for an Ocean view mid-ship balcony room. The bath room is so small that I cannot make a turn inside it.

Budget Cruise by msarkie
Nice cabin, close to midship elevator and stair. Quiet, nice view from balcony.  Read entire member review.
Small balcony cabin, located mid-ship near the mid-ship stairs and elevator. Very convenient, less motion from the sea than at the ends of the ship, and on the best side for port photography. Garden Cafe was up two floors, easy to reach.  Read entire member review.
I always thought that cabins like ours directly at the staircase would be loud and noisy but we were nicely surprised how calm it was and made ways to other venues very short.  Read entire member review.
Good position on ship with a nice balcony . Easy to get to the other areas of the ship without needing to use the lifts. The bathroom is good but the cabin is one of the smallest I have been in. It is ok if your neighbours are quiet ,if they are not then it spoils the cruise. Its time NCL banned smoking on balconies nobody wants that horrid smell drifting into their cabin.  Read entire member review.
Our cabin was great. I loved the storage. We had two robes. I picked a balcony room on the left side of the ship because I wanted to see us coming into port from the bedroom. The televisions need to be updated. The bathrooms are a great size. I think less things in the refrigerator would allow more space for personal items.  Read entire member review.

Adventure in Egypt by king_richard
GREAT...Our balcony room was much nicer than we had expected. Thank you!  Read entire member review.
Avoid cabins right at the elevators.  Read entire member review.
Our mid-ship balcony was quite lovely. Overall we were quite comfortable there for the week. A good amount of storage. It was relatively quiet. Unfortunately, we did seem to be getting cigarette smoke from the room next door through the vent in our closet and of course, from the balcony. Yuk. Would love to have a non-smoking area of the ship next time.Bathroom was a bit cramped in the toilet and shower stalls, but very well appointed.  Read entire member review.

Mid ship with balcony. Deck 11. Choose wisely some of these rooms are underneath the kids club (deck 12). Spacious enough, with enough storage room. Balcony is good. Somewhere quiet to go to. Happy with bathroom, with a bathtub!  Read entire member review.
