As noted, it's a genuinely large cabin, wheelchair accessible, with roll-in shower (no tub). Plenty of storage space, except in the bathroom. It has twin/queen, pullout couch and pullman beds, so sleeps at least 5. The biggest issue is noise, as a major crew area door is across from it. The door slams every time someone goes in or out, which is a lot. A lot of crew conversation in the hall as well, which carries in. There is noise from 6, apparently props or something like that for the theater. Unless you are dead to the world when you sleep, bring earplugs. Read entire member review >>
We were sailing on the cheap, so we had five people packed into the stateroom. It actually worked out pretty well. They do need to include some electrical outlets, though. Had to get creative in order to plug in a CPAP machine for sleeping. Read entire member review >>
Great cabin for just 2 adult. Plenty of room, basically a balcony cabin without the balcony. Two closets, one regular size and another smaller size. Plenty of drawer/shelf space. Bathroom had double sink and full bath/shower. Space between foot of bed and cabin wall was a little tight, but no problem. Cabin condition was excellent. Everything working properly, temperature was fine. Read entire member review >>
The family oceanview cabins offer a little more space than the regular oceanview. There is a large window, not a porthole. The window ledge is quite large and is good for extra storage. The cabin itself is very narrow. From the edge of the bed to the wall, there is only about a foot of space. This must make things very difficult for the poor stewards to get around. The bathrooms in the family oceanviews are very large for a cruise ship. They actually have bathtubs. Kind of strange that a bathroom this size has no outlets though. We did have trouble with getting our toilet to flush. We called maintenance and we were told that we weren't pushing the button is the right place. The button is not that big and we were able to successfully operate every other flush button that we came in contact with throughout the ship. The one in our cabin had to be pushed 10-20 times for it to flush. We just learned to deal with it. There are only 2 outlets in the whole cabin and they are both on the desk. On the second day, I plugged my hairdryer in and shorted out both outlets and the tv. There is no sign or any indication that you can't plug in a hairdryer. Maintenance came and told me not to use my hairdryer and that there was a travel dryer under the desk. Never had this problem before on any other ship. Weird. The family oceanviews have 2 closets, which was very nice. We had plenty of room to hang things up. I brought a few extra hangers because I knew we had 2 closets. Other than the closets though, there really isn't any other storage. The closets have a few shelves in them, but there are no drawers in the entire room. There is a couch by the window and a tiny storage cube as a seat by the desk. The tv is a pretty good size flat screen, but aside from the 10 channels that are just Norwegian trying to sell you things, there are only about 4 other channels and 2 of those are news. There is a slot to put your key card in when you walk into the cabin and the lights do not work unless a card is in the slot. This gets annoying really fast. Thanks to prior reviews though, we knew that you could just put any card in there (thanks CVS) and have access to your light switch without having to fumble for your key card in the dark. Beds were very comfortable. Cabin steward provided excellent service and we had towel animals 6 of the 7 nights. Read entire member review >>
The first cabin was a normal ocean view cabin. More than enough for one person. Bed was large and comfortable. Plenty of closet space and decent bathroom. The second cabin was the family ocean view. This is a cabin for up to 5. Large bed, full size couch that could open as another full size bed. Full bath and double sink. Plenty of closet and drawer space. Read entire member review >>
Our room (family OV) was TINY. Certainly, the smallest family category room we've ever had. There were no drawers for clothes, just a few shelves. The wall was about 8 inches from the foot of the bed. Read entire member review >>
Spacious for a cruise cabin - larger than a standard one. Couch turns into a comfortable bed for the kids and a dividing curtain gives a little bit of privacy. Lowest deck with rooms, deck 5, meant a lot of decks to get up to the action, but it was quiet and we had nearly no issues with sound or other problems. Has a double vanity and a tub , really awesome for kids / getting ready. Room has a built in hair dryer and good storage. Read entire member review >>
