Mid-Ship Inside Cabins 26 Reviews
With two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed, these Mid-Ship Inside Staterooms can accommodate up to two guests. They also feature a separate bathroom with shower and access to some really great amenities. And because they are mid-ship staterooms, you'll have easy access to everything on board.

We really liked the new cabin style, but can understand how people wouldn't be comfortable with the translucent glass between the room and the commode. But we were fine with it. I like the shower, but someone who weighs over 250 pounds probably can't wash below the knees. The only complaint we had is that the mirror needs a light. I was looking around the mirror on our last day when I discovered that it opens into a medicine cabinet. I wish I knew that on Day-1, so maybe NCL should put a sticker in the corner to say "open me".  Read entire member review.
Room is small, but good location as elevator to garden cafe is close by  Read entire member review.

12183 is a Handicapped Accessible room. It's extra wide so you can get a walker or wheel chair in. Some people had powered scooters provided by the line, but they did not fit in the rooms and had to be taken to a central area to charge over night. The room could be converted between one full or two single beds and had all the standard amenities. There was no balcony, but I'm sure there are other accessible rooms which do for those who can afford them. The bathroom was fully accessible with bars, a shower seat, and a panic cord. It was perfectly nice for a windowless room that wouldn't hold still. The only bad part was that they had gotten the extra space from a feature of the layout midship and that put us about equidistant, and therefore as far as possible from both the fore and aft elevators. We managed, but it was trying at times, especially coming back when mom needed to lie down.

Room 12191 No complaints. Bed very comfortable, room quiet. Love the unique style.  Read entire member review.
The room (inside) was one of the biggest disappointments of the cruise. Space was relatively tight and we were constantly (we are not Twiggy's) moving each other aside to get to something in the room. My husband could hear me flushing on my 3-4 trip to the bathroom each evening. We missed the cabins where there was a heavy door with the sink, toilet and shower in one room. The card in the door to put on lights were interesting. The last day, we figured out we could use the casino card to keep the lights on.  Read entire member review.

Quick and Dirty review by OneFoot in Sea,One in Sky
The EPIC interior cabin looked like any other cruise lines interior. No wavy wall. The flat screen TV was non-movable. The only viewing angle that did not distort the picture or colors was standing on the bed in the opposite corner of the room. The "lightly frosted" glass shower enclosure was way too translucent for a family ship.  Read entire member review.
EPIC by DavidTran15

Cabin was unique. I say this because the mirror and sink were in the room while the shower/toilet were a separate section. Normally, you would see these three combined into a single room called the 'washroom' but this was the not case here. I can understand efficiency, if you're a couple because one person can shower while the other can do make-up but this does not work out very well when you're not a couple. A friend and I, were sharing the cabin so it was kind of awkward at times. I personally would have preferred the traditional washroom style. Closet was spacious and locker available inside. Plenty of drawers for the desk area. Reading light by the bed and a fancy Mitel IP Phone that was more annoying then good.

Our cabin was pretty small. There was only about 2 feet in between the bed and the wall on each side. The shower and the bathroom are separate which is nice, but the set up is strange the sink is in the room on the desk so you have to be careful not to splash water on your things, because this desk is the only flat surface except for 2 small nightstands. One of the jokes that Second City told during the Murder Mystery lunch was about the cabin size and the sink location. We opted for a mid ship cabin and it was a long walk to the cabin from the stair wells, but the ship was very easy to get around on.  Read entire member review.
The cabin was inside, the first time we ever got an inside, and it was clean, and I must say quiet. It was a block of cabins at the elevators and stairwell. Easy to find. Otherwise this ship is a maze to walk around. There were carts in hallways food trays etc. But this little block of cabins are kind of isolated. We were in cabin 13237.  Read entire member review.
OUR LAST NCL CRUISE by cruzcruzcruz
13239 TERRIBLE Design  Read entire member review.
Enormous amount of closet space, loved the inside brackets to toss stuff. Hated the hard to detach hangers. Mid ship was close to both elevator banks. Quiet! I did notice an air purifier in one of the hallways of my floor (room 12300s?), it did have a funky smell in the hallway when I walked by. I actually like the sink being detached to the rest of the "washroom". There was plenty of counterspace to put belongings so nothing got wet from the sink. TV was TINY!  Read entire member review.
It met all of my expectations. I don't understand what the big deal is about the toilets; you can pull the curtain if you need more privacy. But I did hear others complain about it. The beds were comfortable. Housekeeping services were great. Appreciated the safe. The TV channels are a bit limited, but I liked the classic movies. Pay per view movies weren't outrageous.  Read entire member review.
We let Norwegian choose our inside cabin and it was a bit out of the way. We were on deck 12 forward. We already knew that Norwegian has small cabins so we were not surprised. What did surprise us was the sink inside the room and the shower on one side of the room and the toilet on the other. We did not like this arrangement at all, especially since the enclosure was a smoked glass and we felt we didn't have enough privacy. Nor was there enough light in the room.  Read entire member review.
Nice cabin, smaller than similar on other cruise lines, tiny sink, adequate shelf and drawer space, no seating facilities other than bed, TV only can be seen from bed.  Read entire member review.

The cabin was small but perfect for a child and adult. two twin beds in 10-101. it was right by the elevator and mid ship. the bathrooms are equipped with hair dryer, shower gel and shampoo only.  Read entire member review.
