Nice room no complaints but I would not put more that two in a room. They say it can sleep 4 but no way would I have survived a week with four of us in the room.

We overall loved our cabin. We were deck 10 forward - between mid ship and forward. For the most part it was very quiet and not too far from the forward elevators and stairs. The room was a decent size for two people, and very modern in décor. Lots of storage, closet space, nice bathroom and shower (especially for a cruise ship) and comfortable bed (like Marriott-style). Balcony was small, but we knew that from the other reviews, and we barely used it anyway. We enjoyed it more for being able to open the curtains and see out, and all the natural light that it brought in.

Since I needed a handicapped room because of my electric scooter we had plenty of room to move around and enough room to put our clothes away. Bathroom was very roomy.

As I stated in my overall review our cabin was great. It was neat and clean and very comfortable. Closet space is a little small for two people but we were able to fit all our clothing. The hangers in the closet should be replaced by some other type of hangers. Our steward Catur was great and took care of all our needs and requests. The first day we did have a problem with our shower being clogged and the water flooding the bathroom floor but we called and reported it and it was taken care of while we were out of the cabin and it was fine for the rest of the trip.

The cabin was a decent size. We had 3 people in our cabin and didn't have a problem. I find it very annoying that you have to keep the key in the slot for the lights and ac to stay on. We used our aaa card which kept the ac and lights on when we left the room. This caused our room steward to think someone was in the room which made him not turn down our room one night. I tried to explain to him about the card, but I don't think he really understood. He made towel animals every night for us.

The room was fine. Clean, comfortable bed and good storage space. The shower was fine for me, but a little tight for my husband who is 6'1". Good space for toiletries in the bathroom also.

Extra Large angled balcony on deck eight, just a tad bit smaller than the Large Balcony staterooms right next door. It fit 2 lounge chairs and two regular chairs.

Love this ship! Martinichick
Loved this cabin! Lots of storage, very comfy bed and large bathroom. We were on deck 9 which was an easy walk down to restaurants and up to pool. Right near the elevator which is what we prefer. Ironing board came quickly!

Plenty of storage but small, hard for two adults to get around at same time. Coffee pot was a nice touch even though we had to ask the room steard everyday to stock it. Bathroom was normal cruise ship size. Balcony was tiny. The air conditioning was great, the room was actually cold!!!

Cabin was well appointed. Bathroom was small but very nice. Especially liked the removable shower head. It was convenient for those mornings when I only wanted to wash my hair!

The cabin was spacious with cubbys and draws literally everywhere. It was a first for me to have the Cabin Steward re-clean the room before using. When we opened the room and we thought the room hadn't been cleaned yet. There was toothpaste on the morror and the shower had definitely not been cleaned. Within the cabin itself food was splashed on the wall near tv, remote was sticky and whole cabin needed a good gone over. The Steward claimed he had cleaned it but had difficulty getting shower to look clean. Huh? I asked him to please clean the room again. We returned about two hours later and it sparkled and remained so the entire week. In this stewards defense he more than made up for it in service each day and was still compensated.

Family of four fit, small but adequate. Clean. Balcony small but relaxing. Enough storage space for all of us. Bed was closer to balcony so made getting into the closet easier. Pullman bed from the ceiling but we didn't use it. Bathroom served its purpose. You can see the firework display from the balcony.

The room was small but adequate. A bit sub-par when compared to similar rooms on other cruise lines.

Cabin
Our balcony cabin was smaller than similar cabins on other cruise lines. The balcony itself was tiny, suitable for standing only. The room layout was quite strange. It contained a double bed, narrow desk built into the wall, and a sofa. The sofa however was obviously an afterthought as it completely blocked access to the closet. The only way to hang anything in the closet was to kneel on the sofa. The closet itself was quite narrow. So narrow, in fact, that when the ship rocked, the hangers banged alternately into the door and the back of the closet. We had to rig a towel to silence them. The height of the closet bar was so low pants hung by the cuff crumpled into the floor rather than hanging straight. There were only two electrical outlets in the room, both on the desk. Thus, one could not leave electronic devices such as e-readers charging by the bed at night. Nor could one leave a device charging when the room was unoccupied. The lights and outlets are live only so long as your key card is in a slot by the door. When you leave with your key card, the outlets go dead.

The bathroom did have a bright spot. The shower stall is glass, including the door. This provides a much more effective water containment system than the flimsy shower curtains we have experienced on other ships.

Great room for two people. Quiet. Balcony is on the small side (only about 3 feet deep) though, and not private. Guests walking on deck 7 can look up and see you, as can guests in balconies below you on decks 8 and 9, since those balconies extend out further than this cabin. Plenty of shelf space in the room. Bed is near the balcony, sofa if near the closet, making room seem larger and providing easy access to the closet. Room safe is small, will not hold an SLR camera. Bathroom is large enough to move around easily but shower is rather small; does not accommodate 2 people easily.

Great little balcony room in a fantastic location. Get off the aft stairs, turn left, and it's just around the corner. The location made it super simple to get places, and as someone who has zero sense of direction, I couldn't lose my cabin! Balconies are smaller on Breakaway than on most other NCL ships, but we didn't find the size diminished our use of it. This cabin is on one of the bump outs, it is NOT a corner one with a larger balcony, but because of its position on a bump, has a view that can only see a handful of cabins in either direction, not everything. There's not a lot blocking the view here, which is fantastic. You can see the lifeboats below, but it didn't bother us.
