Mid-Ship Balcony Stateroom (BA)
Decks: Deck 11 | Deck 13 | Deck 14
Cabin was very nice. I would choose one with the bed next to the balcony next time for easier access to the closet. I did not find any drawers which I thought was unusual, but I did use the larger drawer under the couch which held all of my clothing other than what I hung in the closet and my husband used the shelves in the closet. We were able to store both suitcases (one large and one medium sized one) under the bed. Our cabin steward was available and we saw him several times a day.

My cabin was great. I travelled with my sister and there was more than enough room for the two of us. Our balcony was also roomy enough for us. We had room to sit and also had a small table if we needed it. Our cabin was always neat and clean and our cabin steward Gilbert was very accommodating and always available if we requested anything that we may have needed.

Typical balcony room, maybe a little smaller but not noticeable. Bed was very comfortable, bathroom was a good size and plenty of storage. Very quiet, hardly had any noise, nothing above or below.

Cabin was small, but storage was good. Smaller than balcony staterooms on Carnival ships.

No chair, no table, only a box as a "chair" OR a minor table. The safe is not big enough for an i-pad. The balcony is not big enough for breakfast.

Average size but balcony was smaller compared to other cruise lines. Great service and steward was attentive. Sofa bed was broken...drawers underneath did not open properly.

Cabin was nice. Our steward, Remi, was very attentive. Only complaints - air conditioning didn't stay on all night and balcony VERY small. We barely had room to put our legs.

Very spacious with tons of storage! We were very comfortable all week long. Some other passengers mentioned that the size of the balconies were too small. We did not find that at all. There was plenty of room for the two chairs and small table and two people to sit comfortably. Our steward was great and he kept everything super clean. There was a problem with the speaker on our TV - nothing major, but it sounded as though one speaker was starting to go - there was a crackling noise. Hopefully they check those things and correct that for the next passengers. Overall, super cabin and very happy with the whole experience.

Buyer beware gazuccio
We had a larger cabin that was well appointed. Came with a tub and two sinks. Bed was near closet vs balcony...I like the bed near the balcony...allows for better access to closet. Plus you can hear the waves breaking with the door open at night. Small tv

Tuesday we arrived in cape Canaveral...gorgeous day, sunny. I decided to rent a car, great idea. Went to manatee park and then Cocoa beach. You can rent chairs on beach. On way back to ship, stopped and picked up bottled water. Car rental cheap 50.00 for the day.

The cabins aboard the ships are beautifully designed.... the shower herads were nice, the closet space plentiful for a short voyage, and the room attendant attentive. Very nice.

The stateroom was adequate and well cared-for by the staff.

This was our stateroom for the cruise to nowhere. It was spacious but could have been little bit larger, The stateroom was always clean. Our steward did good job to keep it looking clean.

Smaller than average room. Small balcony. Only 3 feet wide to accommodate two small chairs and small table to sit drinks on.

--We had a balcony room. Absolutely lovely. SO MUCH STORAGE SPACE!! Those Norwegians know how to create space. There are actually draws under the couch if you need the space. The mini fridge is in a cabinet but was locked for us for some reason. We didn't inquire. Don't know if that's normal or not. But it was nice to have one if needed.
-The room is quite spacious. Nice bed. Fun to have a balcony. Although cold, I stood out on the balcony and watched the sun rise. It was so beautiful. Quite a different perspective.
-The bathroom was lovely. Again, TONS of storage space. Only negative was the water pressure from the shower. Oh least it was hot when I wanted it to be.
-The rooms were fairly quiet. Seemed like you could hear more of what was going on above than in the rooms next door. I brought a fan with me to create a little white noise. I would probably bring earplugs next time too.

Our balcony stateroom was small, but adequate. There are NO amenities in the room. No basket of toiletries, no robes, getting pool/ beach towels replaced took tracking down the room steward 3 times, again, just not what we are accustomed to. And our balcony? It was barely large enough to accommodate the two of us standing, plus the upright chairs that were there. No lounges. Nothing.

The room was a decent size for the four of us. We camp in a tow-trailer so we are no strangers to tight quarters. The shower was wonderful and adjustable to my short 5-year old. The bathroom stank a tiny bit and I'm not sure if it was the soap or the sewage, but air freshener worked well here. I had no problem with storage but I do prefer drawers over closet shelves. We had an angled balcony which was plenty of space. The beds were heavenly! We brought a power strip and an extension cord for all our electronics, too. The fourth bed drops from the ceiling above the sofa bed. Our steward pushed it half-way back up every day so we would be able to use the sofa during the day.

Cabin is definitely smaller than Royal Caribbean or Carnival but the bathrooms are larger.

No complaints. Room size was comfortable with adequate closet and shelves space. Yes there was drawer space under the TV console. Saw so many reviews that stated differently. All of our suitcases easily fit under the bed. Bathroom was large enough and the shower was fantastic with good water pressure. We enjoyed sleeping with the balcony door open to take advantage of the clean fresh salt air and we had noise from the bars on level 8 in the evening, so next cruise we will book a balcony on the opposite side. Problem solved.

Deck 11

The cabin was of adequate size but lacked soundproofing as we could clearly hear our neighbors conversations. Attendant was excellent.

I was travelling alone and my cabin was perfect for me.More than enough storage both in the bathroom and main cabin area.The balcony is tight.It fits 2 straight back chairs and a tiny table to hod a couple of drinks.There is no way you could put a lounge chair.

Lovely stateroom, smaller balcony than on previous cruises, bathroom beautiful, wardrobe too close to one side of bed making access awkward. No public areas nearby so very quiet.

We had a mid ship starboard balcony. Shipped docked (it's random) port side so we had a terrific panoramic view of Bermuda. The room is nicely appointed. Plenty of room for 2. Balcony is small but manageable for 2 people. Plenty of storage. Bathroom is a nice size for a cruise ship. Bed was SUPER comfortable. Couch was okay for a child/teen for 3 in a room if needed. Our cabin steward was great. Jose gave us towel animals (my wife loved them) every evening and kept our cabin immaculate. They did a nice job decorating for our anniversary and my wife's birthday. Very satisfied.

We had Balcony Cabin on Deck 13. Mid-ship balcony stateroom number 13162. Love the location! Very near the Splash Academy, Spa and Gym. We can use the stairs most of the time. The room was small, but clean, new, and totally adequate. Bathroom was great! We spent lots of time on the balcony and even though it was small. One of the biggest hits was coffee in the room.

My cabin(BA 11812) beautiful decor and lighting features. Closet was average, we asked for more hangers and received them. Plenty of storage throughout the room. Small balcony, but serves its purpose to enjoy a cup of tea/coffe, a glass of wine and just to sit out and relax.

Nice location- Bed by the balcony. Near the elevators and the buffet.

Beautiful room - We had a Spa Balcony and it was perfect! Decor was gorgeous and tons of space. The balcony was a little smaller than usual, but just fine. There was TONS of space for storage. We didn't even use all of it and we overpacked!

Our cabin and deck were very unsuitable for handicapped people. We were on deck 13 and the corridors were too narrow for two people to pass except at certain areas where the hallway widened. My mother with her walker could not get by the laundry carts which became increasingly tiresome. Guest services said the corridors got narrower as you went higher, but we are accustomed to having a balcony and uninterested in being on deck five. We did check the hallway out there and it was much wider. The cabins have no drawers whatsoever. We were in 13808 which was one of the cabins where the hallway widened so that was okay for entering and exiting, but the doorway was too small for the walker and there was no real hall space to store it. Also, we got smoke from the deck 8 bars which I hated.

NCL Breakaway - Cabin 13144 Comfortable size. Bedding and pillows were wonderful. Storage was ample. Bathroom was a great size. Basin was a good size. Counter was ample. Shower was hot and powerful. Cabin 13144 had a balcony (port side). I found the room better then Epic as the room had 90-degree angles (no curves). Storage was ample and the bathroom was a good size. In the shower hot water came up fast. Pressure was nice. Toilet flushed when needed. I appreciated that the inside cabins were not across the hall, but rather in corridors between Port and Starboard. Cabin staff was wonderful. My cabin was spotless at all times. "Robert" addressed me whenever he saw me. He was great.
