The cabin was kind of tight, as most NCL cabins seem to be, but also like most NCL cabins they seem to design them so there is ample room for storage. We had no problem putting our clothes and belongings away and actually had tons of extra space. We didn't have a couch to sit on. The room was in excellent condition... no wear and tear. The bed was very comfortable. We had cabin 5024, which is located at the front of the ship near, but not next to, the front staircase. It was very convenient for us to get to the Stardust Theater (one floor up) and also the South Pacific Spa (a short elevator ride). There was some noise from above us, which is the casino, I believe. We just heard the vacuuming mostly. We did hear the random hallway and adjacent cabin noise as well, which was what you would expect on a cruise ship.
