Cabin was more roomy than we thought it would be, but we weren't traveling with kids either. Comfy and had everything we needed.

Fun Cruise! Diann24
The room was very nice. I liked the location. We did not hear any noise. The bathroom was a good size. I slept on the couch, which was also a bed. It wasn't as nice as sleeping in a bed, but it was very very firm. Lots of storage. Wish that we had a better room steward who was around.

The cabin was everything we expected. Big enough for a family of four with plenty of room to move around. Sure, the balcony wasn't big, but large enough for us to sit outside and enjoy the view and cool ocean air. Our room steward, Dennis, was always cheerful and made a special point to meet the whole family and learn our names, There was never a point when we arrived/departed our room and Dennis didn't have a greeting using our name. Our cabin location on Deck 13 was perfect. Right by the stairs, it was only two flights to the deck with all the fun and food. It's really nice to be able to pop up to Garden Cafe and get coffee in the morning or a snack in the evening.

Beautiful cabin! Very clean the bathrooms were bigger than I expected (Both cruise experiences). The staff responsible for cleaning the rooms were very pleasant and did a great job.

Average cabin. No complaints except they need a sign over the toilet to push the button and release very fast.

Cabin 13290
The bump-out balcony was great. it was at least 50% bigger than a regular balcony. The cabin was big enough with lots of storage space and a well designed bathroom. The decoration was plain. A lot of beige made it look like a medium price motel room more than a cruise ship cabin but it was perfectly acceptable. It was equipped with a refrigerator and a coffee maker that was replenished daily by the steward so we could have fresh coffee without having to wait for room service. A nice touch. The major issue was the location. It was quite far aft and fairly high up on the ship. The music from the late night dance parties on the aft deck could be heard past midnight some nights.

Our cabin was fine. Just one problem with the air conditioner. After a trip to guest services and several phone calls our air conditioner did get fixed. Only took about 4/5 hours.

Not what was expected madmarvin23t
Cabin was fine. Seems like our normal stewart was not there it took till 3pm to make up our room and it was never turned down at night and no towel animals. Other than that the room was fine. They had problems with the tv stations so basically when we went to our room to relax there were no channels.

The bed was comfortable but the pillows were like pieces of shredded rubber. The couch was a piece of wood with a very thin mattress, definitely not comfortable for sleeping for a week. Give me a pull out couch anytime.

As above, we thought it was quite good but were informed it was on the small side due to space saving to get more rooms built

Very comfortable. Bed mattresses are already quite soft and sagging. They already need to be replaced.

Cabin 11292
Much larger than I anticipated. Spotless. The bathroom was incredibly large, beautiful shower and plenty of space for toiletries. The outside patio was perfect. Noise level outside was almost non-existent. Daily service was perfect. My best compliment goes to the dry-cleaning service. Not expensive, one-day service, better than the dry-cleaning service I use at home. Unbelievable!

The cabin was pretty small, I think they're smaller on the newer ships, but perhaps not. The closet space is very limited... however, the bunk beds for the kids were great. Yes, they take up a lot of room but they were very comfortable for the kids.

The cabin was a nice size, and housekeeping was top notch. They kept the room tidy, provided us with our Freestyle Daily each evening, and left mints on the pillow. The balcony was fantastic, and not too small. Even the bathroom was well laid out.

Good space, largest showers I ever had; I am 5'10" at 270 lbs. Best bathroom layout I have seen so far as well. There is a lot of storage. Luggage goes under bed, storage under couch, storage in tables, desk, etc. The balcony is very small, fits two chairs and a miniature table. Flat screen TV.

We had 4 people in our cabin so it was a little small but we figured that anyways. We had a balcony and it was defiantly worth the extra money. It is great to sit outside at night or in the morning.

NYC on a Ship realvermonter
Spacious, comfortable bed, well maintained, plenty of room in the shower. Good water pressure on the ship. Look for the card that tells you where all of your storage is, we found ours mid week after we were struggling with the small cupboard. Overall we were happy with the room.

Cabin 11168
Cabin itself is fine...but plumbing wasn't working properly and so the shower water didn't drain and instead flooded the whole bathroom....and the AC didn't ever get cold enough. When I called to ask for someone to fix both...the stewards mailbox was full! I had to go down to guest services. He was not apologetic or compassionate about it at all. This caused us a three hour delay in getting ready for dinner and the shows we were to attend! The cabin steward was furnished with VERY beige and very badly stained towels and our first set of lines as well had a huge 10 inch cirlce of stain! Our cabin steward didn't leave Toilet Tissue or other things like Customs form or Final bill in the room or door either.

Cabin 11892
Small but adequate al long as you aren't going to spend a lot of time there. The TV didn't work at first but was quickly fixed. The string across the shower stall was helpful for drying wet things but was not sufficient by itself. I like the idea I read here about bringing a portable clothes line to string across the balcony. We did bring a few of our own clothes pins.

Surprisingly impressed katlovestocruise
Cabin was perfect for the four of us. Had no complaints about the pull down bed or couch bed. Our stateroom attendant Jeff was awesome and had the pull out put away during the day so the room didn't seem so busy. Key points about the room- overall space & storage was fine, it's a connecting room, balcony is small and it is almost all the way forward, very quiet location.

Cabin 9272
Room was very spacious for 2 people, with lots of storage space. Balcony was small but nice. Tip: on the air conditioning, do not push the snowflake, it gets the room cold and shuts off. If you dont touch the snowflake and just turn it down it will stay running and keep the room cold.

Cabin 13276
Cabin was awfully small in comparison to other ships I have been on. Can't access the closet cause the couch was in the way. The Bed was next to the balcony and we had our two kids on the couch bed and one on the bed that came out of the ceiling. The mattress was a rock. Television service was terrible. The room is right off the elevator which saves some walking, it's close to the buffet and pool deck too.

Amazing ship and staff sandinmyshoes
Our balcony room felt large and the bathroom was plenty big. The shower was likely the largest we have had on any line and we always cruise Aqua Class on Celebrity. We had a cabin with the angled balcony and it provided so much more space! BEWARE THOUGH, the normal handle does not lock the balcony door like it says it does. There is a separate lock at the top of the balcony door that prevents anyone from on the balcony getting into your room. With the angled balcony, it is very easy to jump the rail from the balcony next door. The room layout and decor were lovely. Plenty of room for a week cruise and nice storage in the room and the bathroom.

The cabin in and of itself was great. plenty of room and storage. they had problems with toilets not flushing in our whole area. all cabins and public bathrooms were not flushing for the first 3 days. that was horrible, absolutely horrible. this ship was only 2 yrs old, 2013, whats up with that??

Cabin 9168
Two double beds and a couch for a third person (me). It was small, but adequate. Bathroom shower was tiny but designed well so you could put your foot up and reach everywhere. The room steward Dinesh was awesome! He helped us get organized, provided us with whatever towels we needed and even made sure to check on the one of us (not me!) that got seasick on our way back to NYC.

Cabin 13870

I had Balcony Cabin 13870. This cabin was bright, immaculate, and very comfortable. I truly enjoyed my balcony. My Cabin Steward, Junelle was fantastic, and Cruz Ton, the Cabin Steward Supervisor was a pleasure to deal with.

Enjoyed the Cruise CPT Trips

Typical layout for balcony. Close to aft stairway and directly under the buffet. We were concerned about noise due to location but it was totally a non issue. A couple of nights we heard the bass from Spice H2o, but it was not loud or a problem. There is an overhang (from the buffet), it provided nice coverage and protection from rain and also from the sun. Serious sun lovers might not be happy with that.

Significantly smaller than a similar cabin on NCL's other New York ship, the Gem, by almost 30 square feet. Attractive design, balcony a bit on the small side.

Cabin 11736

The balcony cabin had plenty of storage. The bathroom is ample in size. The balcony is a bit smaller than other ships, yet it fit 2 chairs & a small table, more than adequate for our needs. Saw 3 rainbows from our balcony, sunsets & sunrises. The bed & pillows were very comfortable.

Cabin 9910

Travelling alone my cabin was all I needed...but it had a couch that becomes a bed and it was not comfortable for sitting and watching TV and there were no chairs...there was a sort of stool that doubled as a coffee table. Bathroom was all you could need with lots of shelf space for stuff. Wi-Fi in room...great...Balcony for two...small but all I needed. Would hold up to four passengers with a closet that was full with my clothing so I have no idea how four would manage. Endless repeating T.V. films and shows...every news chanel so they could spend a few bucks on some more D.V.D's.

Cabin 11880

Nice room - comfortable - can hear through the walls - bathroom a little bigger - nice shower - finally put a door on the shower so that water does not go everywhere. Very disappointed that there are no drawers in this room anywhere. Very little room between the bed and the closet - sit on the bed to get in the closet - will make it easier.

Quiet room. Roomy enough for 2 people. Heard the balcony was small which it is but not really a concern. Would stay in that room again. We had our 2 teenage boys in an inside immediately across from us (13425) and it was excellent access.

Breakaway justinfcreasy

On our past cruises we have always had inside rooms and for this cruise we got upgraded to a balcony and it was AMAZING. We will never go back to an inside room. It was like having my own private deck where i didn't have to hassle with anyone else. I definitely suggest it.

Cabin 13724

The cabin was great. Lots of room in the bathroom. The bed was comfy. Lots of storage space. We loved, loved, loved the balcony. Our cabin was forward, not aft so I am not sure if I have selected the correct Cabin Categoy above. Can not think of any improvements, it was perfect for the two of us.

Cabin 11298

Cabin was very quiet. Balcony is small but OK for sitting and reading. Bathroom is compact but not too small, there is enough room for toiletries on the shelves. Cabin had a queen bed and large sofa. Flat screen TV was 32" and is interactive so you can check your account, make reservations for dinner, tours, shows etc. Good TV channel selection. Hairdryer is permanently plugged in under vanity with a holder under the vanity to keep it out of the way when not being used -- good idea. There is a clever footstool in the room that provides storage space and can be used as a seat or if you put on the wooden "cap" -- it can serve as a table. Lighting in room is very good, adequate storage space and closet space. Room has a coffeemaker and a refrigerator. Could have done without the coffeemaker but I guess some people have to have one. Entire ship is WiFI including the cabins so all electronics work -- there is a fee of course but still -- great convenience to be able to use a laptop or tablet in the cabin.

Cabin 13140

13140-Balcony BC cabin. Very nice, closer to front of ship. Port side so when docked saw the Royal Naval Dockyard as our view which was perfect. Didn't like that it was in a long hallway and the teenagers in our hallway (tons of them for a sweet sixteen) were loud. Would prefer a smaller hallway if one existed.
13609-Inside cabin, smaller, perfect for two teenagers, in a quiet area and more central to ship. Would not try to out three people in either cabin unless one was a smaller child.
