Corridors nice and wide on this deck, but there is an outward-opening cabin door plus a potentially dangerous pillar right smack in front of the cabin! Cabin storage does NOT include drawers. Theater noise bleeds through to the cabin.

TOO MANY PEOPLE! by denjohn

We were "upgraded" to a cabin (#5138)which happened to be a handicapped accessible cabin. It was huge with a nice sized porthole window. Lots of closet and drawer space, with many handicapped accessories, which we didn't need but if you did, it would be good to have. The main problem was the noise - we constantly, and I mean all though the day and night, heard slamming of doors. We think it was because we were across from the crew space with large doors, and it was very loud, and intrusive - especially late at night or very early in the morning.

May 12th cruise by pedsednurse

small cabin as compared to other cruise lines--especially princess or carnival

We had a mini-suite, which like other cabins was well-appointed and tastefully designed. It does not have the curtain that we have enjoyed in mini-suites on the Jewel-class chips. Our bathroom included an upgraded shower with sliding door (no tub) and a double sink (albeit one that was very shallow front to back). Cabins include a mini-bar fridge and small coffeemaker (! - I think that's only in mini-suites and above). Even the mini-suite was a bit cramped, and there wasn't enough room to unpack clothes and store suitcases, so we used the sofa as a luggage rack all week and weren't able to enjoy the sofa. Were it not for booking a large balcony, we would have felt claustrophobic. Even though we weren't really able to take full advantage of a large balcony in the north Atlantic, it was a great place to escape the cramped room. As you've read elsewhere, most balconies are small don't even have room for you to stretch out your legs.  Read entire member review.

Plenty of closet space. The balcony door was hard to get open and closed. People on the decks below could see into the balcony. The room was over the theater so there were times when you could hear music, but it was not late night nor constant.

Disappointed by LilWifey

Crew was constantly walking this hall....there was a crew door at the very end. Otherwise very quiet. Big bathroom with double sinks and big stall shower. Nice big balcony with 2 lounge chairs, a table and 2 chairs. No drawers, just shelves and hanging space. No magnifying mirror on vanity.

Amazing Trip! by Artsy215

Our room was directly above the theater. Twice a night we got to listen to the show in the privacy of our own room. Seriously, don't book on the 8th deck. Go with 9 or higher. I liked the balcony. Lots of hidden storage. Bed was hard as a rock. Beautifully decorated!

An excellent cabin, quiet, elegant and comfortable. lovely elegant deck 9 cabin, nicely furnished in beiges and with touches of deep turquoise, set off by curved rosewood cabinetry. The bed was blissfully comfortable, and the bathroom well planned with good shower and pelnty of shelf space.  Read entire member review.

Timing is everything by hsprincipal

Great location. Easy to get around the ship. Plenty of storage for two people. Nice bathroom and comfortable bed.

The room is located in the back near the elevators. The bed is near the balcony and the bunk beds block the closet.
The room is the most expensive we have ever paid for on a cruise... and it was the SMALLEST. I realize that you don't spend much time in your room but with 4 people and the bunk beds out, 2 people could not walk at the same time. The bathroom is large with good water pressure.
We were on deck 9 which is above "The Waterfront", the roof of the Waterfront is below, so when you look directly down you see an 8 foot roof. During the cruise I saw a couple of items that people dropped from above accumulate on the deck including an ipod. I was in my room and I saw that there was a woman looking in my room! It scared the $#@1 out of me, it's not something you expect to see on a cruise at sea. She was picking up the ipod that was dropped.
The room is directly above Cagney's Steakhouse. We never had a problem with noise or odors from the restaurant.

Interior cabin was WAY too small even if you only had 2 people. We had 3 and were VERY cramped, I can't imagine having a 4th in the same room. We could hear the Cirque show rehearsing and putting on each show which was very loud and annoying. Bunk beds were partially over the lower bed making it pretty claustrophobic.

This was a Haven Forward Suite. The room was a 1 bedroom with a king bed, living room dining area combo with a spacious bathroom. Plenty of storage and 2 very large closets with lots of hangers. The bathroom had a spa like tub with a separate walk in shower with more jets and shower heads that I knew what to do with! Double sinks with sleek hardware made this bathroom an envy to my bathroom at home!

We had 2 flat screen tvs. One in the bedroom and one in the living room. I loved having a cappuccino machine in the room (Lavanza). Our Butler, Mark, always made sure the machine was always stocked with espresso pods.

The only downside to this stateroom was the balcony was super super small. I was pretty surprised at its size.

Decent size, a little tight. Cabin 9730 was a larger cabin and a larger balcony. Good A/C control, take a spare hotel room key to keep the power in the room going. Take a power bar as limited outlets and with all the hair devices, electronic needs you will appreciate it. Quiet cabin, big shower, crappy shower gel...take soap.

NCL Breakaway - Bermuda by LItravelmaiden4

9800 - bathroom great size. Room nice size. Closet was nice size. Balcony was on the small side but good for two people to play cards. Great view of Statue of Liberty! Some music can be heard from Fat Cats Blues Club in the evenings but we didn't mind. The white "awning" from the Waterfront was directly below. Did not really obstruct view. Close to Forward elevators. Good location.

There are no draws for storage and the closet is less than half the size of those on other cruise lines. You cannot use your lights unless you put a room card in a slot at the cabin entrance. Inconvenient and very European and stupid. Cabin door opens outwards into the hall rather then inwards as shape of the cabin entrance is not totally straight. The bed was so short my husbands feet hung over the bottom, he is 6' 1", not overly tall for an American male. The only outlets are at below the mirror'  Read entire member review.

Great 150 SF balcony, that had room for 2 chaise lounge chairs, two tables and two chairs. The 170 SF room was well-appointed with plenty of shelves and storage areas. The beds were heavenly! We had a problem with our TV one day, but called for a repair and it was fine when we returned to the cabin 2 hours later. Our room steward, Christian, from Costa Rica was so nice and helpful. He got me an extra table on the balcony so we could have breakfast out there and have enough room to put out all the plates and coffee. He also got us down pillows. My only complaint was the room above us that seemed to move their balcony furniture often.

The stateroom: I had a balcony stateroom on deck 10 I must admit that it was set up very nicely and roomy. The bathroom was larger than any other bathroom on any other ship I have sailed on. I just love the fact that I didn't hit my elbows once when I showered. The stateroom had more than enough closet space and hangers. The only draw back in the stateroom was the lack of draw space. Hair dryer, soap, shampoo, electrical outlets etc. are all in the stateroom. Three important notes if you've never sailed on Norwegian, there is a slot behind the stateroom door that you insert your key card into to turn the electricity on, the do not disturb/clean the room signs are electronic and lastly the A/C shuts off when the balcony door opened. I realized that the staterooms are larger because the corridors are narrower; for me the trade off is worth it.

Cabin 10132: Small balcony. Heard cabin doors slamming very clearly and voices in the hallways and neighboring cabins. Also, heard neighbors flushing their toilets.

Rooms were good size. Defiantly not small. The balcony was roomy. We had 5 people out there plus two chairs and a table and it was roomy. I also noticed the showers may be bigger. Not 100% sure but seemed like it to me!  Read entire member review.

The studios are tiny but well worth saving the money you'd spend with a 2nd person premium! Especially if you are like me and never spend time in your room.

First time on NCL by Tamara Meaux

We stayed in a mini suite. We have stayed in suites on other cruise lines and found them to be much larger than the one we were in on the Breakaway. There is a pretty good amount of storage, room for your luggage under the bed, a sliding closet that just fits a weeks worth of clothing for 2, several shelves in the closet and a security box. There are also drawers under the sofa. On the side of the desk there area few more small shelves which are very handy too. The bathroom is very nice and in there are several drawers and a place to put your items on top of the sink. Our room was Starboard side, midship and it was in a great location.

I had a balcony room and thought the balcony space was typical. The friend I traveled with was a smoker so we did spend quite a bit of time out there and never felt that there wasnt enough space. Youre sitting how much space does a person need?! The room layout was pretty comfortable. Our beds were split into two twins which put one of the beds very close to the closet. Yes, it was a tight space but I could sit on the bed, pick out my clothes and off I went. If I was a large person I suppose it could be difficult. There was plenty of space in the closet and lots of shelving. There was no drawer space, per se; however there were more shelves under the TV area behind cabinet doors. There are shelves and cabinets everywhere. The bathroom was a comfortable size as well with two large shelves for personal items. I liked the center-frosted shower door vs. the usual shower curtain that can suck fast to you when youre wet. They have added the foot step in the shower for ease of ladies shaving legs. I still dont like the shower gel provided I prefer bars of soap. I actually went down to the shop to purchase a bar, but they didnt sell them. Guess I need to buy a travel soap dish and bring my own next time. The non-fog mirror is always a nice touch too. The interactive TV in the cabin was nice you could get show and dinner reservations without even leaving your room or picking up the phone. The system even showed you what was available in real time. In an effort to conserve energy there is a new lighting system in the cabins on this ship (new to me anyway) wherein you place your cabin card in a slot at the door and the lighting works when you leave the cabin and you remove the card the lights go out. There is also an electronic system above the exterior of the door for Make up Room  Read entire member review.

Studio cabin closet were small but functional, it's a matter of being organized, I had a few organizers with me. Store luggage under the bed. The square table I put against wall under the phone served as a night table. And it also a good storage spot for small things. I placed all toiletries on shelves. The bed is very comfortable.

The toilet area is very small can quite close the door, flushing is a bit delayed, the sink is small and when you wash face or brush teeth some water falls on the floor these things have to do with poor design not much that you can do about it at this point. But these things did not ruin my cruise I was there to have a good time and that is just what happened.

I had a single cabin in the Singles Lounge area on Deck 11. The room was "hip" in styling and provided an amazing amount of storage. There is a double bed and two closet spaces. The beds are incredibly comfortable. The shower is a bit small, but not overly inconvenient. I appreciated the ability to have my own room without paying the single supplement that is so often the only option. The only thing about these rooms is that they are all interior state rooms with no windows. That was a bit of a bummer. But I would definitely do it again. The value for the dollar was more than worth it!

Breakaway or bust by roses_rem
11603- handicapped inside, location right off the forward elevator.... room very wheelchair friendly. My sister had no problem with the toilet or the showerchair. There was a large closet as well that included a shelf and 3 shoe shelves. There was a desk and chair with 3 drawers. The only thing missing was cosmetic shelves in the bathroom and vanity area. Since our room was handicapped, everytime the door bell was rung or we received a phone call, an alarm rang, a buzzer buzzed, and a light flashed. the first few times scared the crap out of us.  Read entire member review.

This inside room is small but well laid out. All space is used wisely. We are a family of 4, with 2 large bags... everything squeezed in okay. Would book this room type again and use the money save over a balcony for other activities.  Read entire member review.

Cabin was clean, lots of storage, loved the colors and having the balcony was a plus, but we barely used it because we were always busy outside the room.

11th floor studio

Studio smaller than I expected. Sliding closet doors from all surrounding cabins kept me awake because they banged when opened and closed. Headboard from my cabin and cabin next door was connected and separated only by a thin wall. I had to deal with a man snoring all week in the next room so I lost a lot of sleep. Guest services told me to get ear plugs to solve the problem. Are they kidding? I paid a lot of money for my privacy and never it had. The studio lounge for solo travelers never had a crowd on any given night. Really a waste of space on the ship. Nothing was complimentary in the lounge except coffee and cookies. They only changed the sheets maybe twice on the entire trip and I had dust under my bed.
Heard people in the narrow hallways all night. Good luck staying in these rooms.

Major letdown! by Deltaflot

Very appealing aesthetically however, bed smelled like ben-gay and nothing was done to make this better except a bottle of champagne, two books, and two tote bags!

Not worth the extra money. Smaller than a regular balcony cabin on other ships. Balcony so small that you cannot sit forward because your knees hit the barrier. Very disappointing!

12679
Our cabin was 12679. It was an inside handicap cabin at the back of the ship. The room was very spacious because it was handicap. The bathroom was also spacious, but shelf space was lacking in the bathroom. We used our carry-on luggage as shelves. My friends had inside rooms next to us, and they were very small. I would strongly recommend bringing your own wire hangers to hang more things. Inside rooms are VERY quiet as doors are not opposite outside rooms but instead in their own hallway.  Read entire member review.

Loved my cabins mini suites 12802 and 12834 (children's). Beds were so comfy. I slept so well. The AC was great and the water pressure and shower were awesome.
We could not hear the Splash Academy, I could hear my neighbor a few times, but nothing too much. Had tons of storage and closet was a great size for a cruise ship.

Ask the steward to take out off of the sodas in the fried so you can add your own water.

Hair dryer is under counter in living space, couch is big enough for an adult to sleep on, my 18 year old slept on it fine, just ask for more bedding. They split the larger bed in two for my other two sons.

The key entry buttons were great for privacy. A red light means do not disturb, green the steward can come in, a blue white means someone is in the room. If you don't need your bed pulled down or cleaned twice a day, leave the do not disturb on. My steward was so busy he didn't have time to go ashore like the Casino and some other staff did. I'm and adult and don't need my bed turned down.

Your key card is your electricity, but the AC still works. So your phone or I pad will not charge if the key isn't in the slot.

Norwegian has a phone App to use while on board, so a cell phone is handy while on board especially to keep updated on events etc. The daily planers were great. They are left outside your door.

Only 1 negative feature for our cabin (12910)Aft. We were several decks below H2O Spice Entertainment/Dancing. The music was extremely loud from 11pm to 1:30am on a couple of nights. Was difficult sleeping (had to use earplugs) on those nights with fireworks & late night dancing.

Breakaway Rocks by jerseygirl1968

Our room was sufficient. Plenty of storage in the closet, under the bed for luggage and even under the sofa bed. We also found cabinet space in the desk, entertainment area. Mini-bar fridge and individual coffee maker were nice too. Ask your steward to remove the booze and you have a fridge big enough for some water bottles. Balcony had two seats and small table. Nice to sit out in port and in the early mornings. Bathroom had plenty of storage, shower with a glass door and foot pedals for shaving.

Was really impressed with the staterooms. Had a standard balcony room and thought it was really well-designed, in our room the couch was next to the balcony and I think it made the room feel even more spacious. There was TONS of storage for 2 people- way more than we used. Two big drawers under the couch, shelves and hanging room in the closet, storage in the vanity and in the bathroom. You could ask for more hangers if you needed them. The bed was comfortable, and while the balcony was a little small, it was fine for just sitting out there for 2 people. The bathrooms were a major improvement over all other ships I have been on- really big! Not bumping into everything in the bathroom was a major plus on this ship. We felt some slight ship motion on the 13th deck (aft, port side) especially in the rougher weather you can get with this itinerary but nothing major. We did hear some noises in the room at night that I believe was our neighbors flushing their toilet, but overall room noise was pretty minimal. The location behind the aft stairs/elevator lead to only minimal hallway noise which was nice. Once or twice we heard bass from Spics H20 at night but it wasn't bad and was easy to ignore, even for light sleepers. Deck 13 was a good location for walking up to 15/16 or down to 6/7.

We had cabin 14104. ASpa Balcony cabin. the cabin was ok, smaller then we have expereicned prior, but funcational. The balcony was very small, almost a joke. An extra foot or two would have gone a long way. The cabin can accomodate three but i do not believe 3 could have fit on the balcony.

Cabin was small but efficient. Some quirks were the card insert to keep the electricity flowing. Remember to bring a card to keep inserted and tell the steward that you need the card left in when you are charging your devices, otherwise you will find that they have not been charged. The balcony edoor must be locked in order for the A/C to work in the room. This took a little getting used to.

We had an inside family cabin, category I1. It was small but adequate. You have to use your key card to turn on the lights. If you take it out of the slot, the lights go out. You can leave it in and then manually turn on and off lights for the room and bathroom, but without a card, no electricity in the room.

The lower bed is two singles pushed together. Plenty of room. The kids' beds are above on either side. They fold up for storage and lay flat, suspended, when in use. They provide a ladder for each bed which can be moved around and out of the way.

Nooks and crannies all over for storage. In the walls, on the left side of the desk, storage for luggage under the big beds, nightstand on either side of the big bed, storage and lights near the headboard which is accessible to the kids up in the beds. Just be careful if you're in the lower bed not to sit up and bang your head on the bunks.

Plenty of ventilation in the room. Vents everywhere and in the bathroom. Plenty of light. Magnetic walls so bring magnet clips for papers and other very light items. Hooks on wall, spacious closet with hangers, shelves and a small safe for your passports, jewelry, etc.

The bathroom had plenty of storage shelving. The shower is a nice size with a height-adjustable shower head which can be removed to be used as a hand-held. Clothes line in shower, so no need to bring one.

The deck plans that were available at the time of my booking, listed my balcony room as one with the bed near the balcony. (This is what I specifically requested) After seeing my cabin on YouTube, I realized it wasn't (or the review was wrong.) I wanted to double check and my NCL Rep (Maggie) called the ship and got confirmation. The bumpouts on the original template were wrong. So if you have your heart set on a particular layout please double check it! 14710 and 14706 are both oriented so the beds are by the balcony.

Cabin 14750. Spa balcony. Good location, close to elevators and stairs. This cabin is considered a forward cabin but it is seemed more of a midship cabin. The angled balcony was larger than other balconies however not as private as others. We found storage to be adequate. The bed is next to the balcony and the sofa next to the closet. This makes access to the closet much easier.

Cabin: Occupied a Spa mini Suite on Deck 14 Cabin 14770. Lovely and nice cabin with large bathroom  tiny balcony but the overhang of deck 15 provided shade and shelter from rain. Lots of storage but the room still felt tight. The Bathroom was big and the shower was pleasant with the different spray heads; however would have preferred a tub/Shower combo at this price point. Utilized the spa pass everyday and enjoyed it. Nothing else very special  really liked the NCL EPICs Spa mini-suite much better.

Could be noisy mid-day from the entertainement above on Deck 15 and scraping of chairs. At night perfectly quiet.

The cabin was in a good location for the view. I like an aft balcony. It was also a great location for the buffet. Just one deck up. H20 and Spice were two decks up. The only negative was noise after 10:00pm from H20 and Spice.

Great balcony
Aft location. Great views and quiet location.
However, you do feel more motion there than other areas. Plus, it's a Haven suite but not in the actual Haven so you need to walk to the other end of the ship and go up 5 levels.
Comfortable beds.

The Haven family suite is smaller than similar suites on Jewel class ships. The living room area is noticeably smaller and the balcony is very small for a room of this type. The room has a lot of furniture which is typically appreciated, but the size of the cabin cannot accommodate all the furniture. The master bathroom is spacious. I would have traded some bathroom space for additional living room space. The second bathroom and bedroom are small, but the layout was good in view of the space constraints. Still a very nice room, but for the substantially price you pay for a Haven suite, I would expect a bit more room both inside and outside the cabin.

Cabin 12704:

Fantastic view. BIG window facing the bow of the boat. Lots of light. Away from the hustle & bustle of the ship. VERY quiet. Only downside is if you get seasick, you may be better in a cabin that in the middle of the boat. Bed was VERY comfortable. Plenty of storage space IMO.

Amazed at how quiet our mid-ship cabin was. Only sound was toilets flushing on occasion (sounds like ice machine dispensing). Bed was comfortable as were linens. Additional bed was too stiff. Bathroom had good storage and decent shower. Really like and felt comfortable in the cabin.

Waste of time & money by abctravler

We had a basic balcony cabin on deck 14. It was small, cramped, with a lack of storage space. The balcony was very small, too small to sit out there for any length of time comfortably. The bathroom was okay, bigger than on other ships.
The television offered several news channels, Nickelodeon, one channel for shows and one for old movies. And then they charge $10 to watch any other movie! This is a rip off!
There are no bathroom toiletries, so bring what you need.

Breakaway needs help by sportsmomtwo

We had two adjoining inside cabins on deck 12 mid ship. While the cabins were very small, the bathroom was a nice size. There is NO storage/drawer space. Luckily, we brought two large portable shelves that fold up that hang from the closet rod. Without that, there was not enough room for two people's clothes for one week. The room is very poorly designed - there is a table/desk with a mini-bar/refrig underneath which was never cold enough to cool even a water bottle. That space should have been used for a dresser. The shelves in the closet are barely wide enough to hold shirts. Pants had to be folded twice to fit on the shelf. Housekeeping was not a highlight of the cruise. I was very surprised at how "unkept" the entire ship was. Sailing on the fifth sail should have provided an immaculate ship - it did not.

We were blessed to have a balcony room, which was surprisingly well fitted for 4 people - tight, but doable! The room was kept nicely and always clean.

The ship is so large that if your room is on forward or Aft, you spend a LONG time going back and forth getting there... mid ship and higher levels the way to go.  Read entire member review.

Noisy room: Almost directly over Fat Cats. Floor vibrated with the music and you could hear the instruments and words of the song....that bad

Balcony is the smallest I have ever had on a ship.

Not enough room storage, no draws.

Prior to trip, I read the room reviews and brought the following extra's with me in my suitcases:
1. Bar soap
2. Shampoo bottle
3. Extra clothes hangers
4. Over the door pocket storage for socks, under ware, etc.

Hallways too narrow, balconies too small, balcony rooms too small, closets too small and situated in hard to reach part of the room. Also their usually is a coffee table in a balcony room but this room was too narrow they had to have a small bench which fit under the vanity in our room serve as seat and a coffee table.

We were pleased with our cabin. There was very good use of limited space. We are people that require limited space. The balcony provided a nice, private experience.

Had some issues with the AC -- make sure the balcony door and latches are completely closed or AC will not turn on.

No bath tub on 9th level -- we were told some on 5 and 12.

Also pool decks are very very slippery when wet was like walking on ice...use caution.
