Cabin 5656
Nov 2016
One caveat about our room…you may read that it is next door to the crew bar which it is. At night you may hear noise in the hallway from the crew bar, but you will NOT hear this noise in the room. However, there was some noise in the middle of the night of some carts moving through the kitchen which was on the deck above us; we told guest services and they did their best to improve the situation.

With a single queen bed, the corners of the furniture can be an obstruction. Our cabin steward fixed a temporary solution. Adequate room for storage, but the bathroom was tight - have you ever heard one that wasn't! Overall, it was about what we expected for space.

Bermuda children ruled By: hladygirl
Too far forward. Very noisy due to main theater below and rough weather causing major huge banging noise of waves hitting the hull

Had an obstructed view cabin. Was very obstructed view, but was what I expected. I just wanted the window to have some light in the room and didn't care about the view. Room was smaller than most ships but was okay. Bed was very hard and uncomfortable.

Cabin 5112
Aug 2016
We had a beautiful view of the ocean once we sailed. The room is designed for three, but I would not recommend as space is limited. There are 2 twin size beds with one bunk above one of the twins. The room is close to the elevators and located next to a crew door. Unfortunately, each night you can hear what sounded like a metal ball and chain being dragged. Most annoying was when others above you or around you slammed their door shut, you heard it with a slight shook at your door.

We slept four in this small cabin easily. Sure it's not a suite but who wants to stay in their room when there is so much going on? They cleaned and arranged it twice a day so it was easy to live in it.

Good First Time Experience By: dumpster0915
lots of storage. Used the bed as a king but different bed heights made that uncomfortable. Each bed seemed to have bars across them. Neither was really comfortable. Could've use plugs next to the bed. But since I took a International Adapter with me I had plenty of outlets. Lighting was confusing with hidden switches all over the place. Location was close to some stairs that were sadly crew only. Kind of confusing. But a pretty quiet location. Room staff should pay more attention to refilling soap/shampoo and changing out glasses. Big window was great. I stayed in my cabin more than most people, reading. I liked it a lot and would stay in it again.

We booked an ocean view porthole guaranteed and got an ocean view picture window. Not too bad for a last minute booking. Room was clean and had enough space for 2, 3 might have been a little crowded. Room steward did a great job

Repositioning - Boston to New Orleans By: quiltangel@comcast.net
Our cabin was on the small side but had plenty of storage and a nice big picture window. Soundproofing wasn't great. Even with a white noise machine I could hear the guy in the next cabin snoring! We had a few problems when we first got on board, refrigerator wasn't working and there were some wear and tear issues. But between the head housekeeper and our great cabin steward, they were quickly fixed.

The room was good. The stewardess could not have been better. I pointed out 2 minor issues with the room and they were corrected within an hour by maintenance.

First walked in our cabin and there was a terrible odor to the room. I called for assistance and someone did come and deodorized it wasn't as bad. The dresser draws need some WD-40 and the faucet to the sink kept sticking going from hot to cold water. My cabin steward did follow up on the smell and he seemed concern about it. The rugs need a good steam clean.

Great location, very quiet on a lower deck with less motion during rough seas. Bathroom was bigger than other cruise ships we have been on. Plenty of storage for our clothing and suitcases. Bed was a bit hard, but we brought a 2 inch foam pad with us to soften it up.

Cabin 5526
May 2015
Cabin 5526 is an adjoining family ocean view room located directly under the casino bathrooms. We got lucky and had quiet neighbors. We were unlucky with the bathroom noise. Frequently, more frequent at night, we would hear a noticeable swishing noise that was from a toilet being fused directly overhead. It sounded like a rolling cart was being raced back and forth above us the whole time. Occasionally the had air dryer would go on as well. We brought a small fan for the white noise, and the noise from the bathrooms was still very noticeable. Other than the noise the room was very nice. It was a nice size and had a beautiful window. It was close to the sitars and elevators. The location was nice if you get seasick easily. The carpet had a few stains and looked very worn, like most of the stateroom carpets on this ship. We got this room as a GTY room. Next time I will be picking an actual stateroom.

Good Time, Great Crew; Could Improve By: retrevr@yahoo.com
Cabin was super clean and plenty of room for us, we drove to New Orleans so we had a ton of luggage but it all fit fine. Our steward was fantastic. I called him the Magician. We would leave in the am and turn the wheel to Make up room and stop back by for something and "poof" it was made up. Same in the evening for turn down. We were always excited to see what towel animal was greeting us each night as we came home. Gusti was our steward and he was great, when he saw us in anther hall way he knew our names and greeted us.

First Timer Impressions By: new2cruisex2
We were surprized to see how large the room was. (aft picture window view). My expectation was much less so the room and the comfort was great with nothing else to compare to. The room was up to date and the bed linens were very comfortable. There was pleanty of storage space. The only issue I had was the soap and shampoo dispensers. Would have liked to see higher end aminities.

Loved every moment! By: mfedyk
We loved our cabin. It was so spacious. A king sized bed and two side-type benches to put things on or under. A desk on one side of the cabin with a little table and one chair on the other side. Built in shelves and drawers on both sides, a little refrigerator with drinks to purchase, a small shower, separate commode and tiny vanity. I brought a over-the-door shoe hanger (recommended by a cruise critic) which I used to place my toiletries, meds, comb/brush, sprays, etc. in. Wow that worked out great because there is no real vanity in the bath area to store things. We did not lack for space. Surprise!!! I brought magnetic hooks to post my dailies, etc. on the walls (another great tip). Nice size closet with safe. We didn't want for anything at all.

Great Family Cruise By: Redrobin23
We had 2 joining cabins, 8656 and 8658, which was great for us, 3 kids in one room and husband and I in the other. Plenty of room for storage and the bathroom and showers were very large considering. Beds were comfortable and hardly any noise from theater below at all. Only heard noise 2 nights from a bar crawl that was going by, we weren't too far from stair/elevator area. But other than that, quiet relaxing rooms. And having a bathroom in each room was very helpful for a family of 5. Mark, our cabin steward kept room cleans and was always friendly whenever we saw him.

Cabin 8508
Oct 2014
Adequate room, plenty of storage, no comfortable chair in the cabin. The bunk on the wall limited my husband's access to the bed - he had to crawl up from the bottom rather than enter at the side. The sliding door to the toilet is a real pain - literally - we both scraped our arms on the metal edges going in/out of the toilet room. The Bow location is noisy in the morning if the ship anchors or uses it's thrusters, and noisy in the afternoon/evening due to the Showroom location just below. We chose it because we like to feel the motion of the ship, and with the Force 11 winds and 18 ft seas near Sydney, the ship really moved!

Beautiful Bermuda By: auntiekiki
Our room was clean and pleasant. A bit tired. The comforter and sheets were comfortable and we slept pretty well (except the night the seas were rough, but that is mother nature.)Why can't they add plugs to the rooms? One is just not enough.

IMPRESSED WITH NCL By: getupgo
I don't know what cabin category we were in but it was an aft, unobstructed view outside cabin. First of all, the bathroom is the nicest I have ever seen on a ship. I loved it and my husband did too. The size of the bathroom compromised the size of the cabin, but it was worth it. At first impression, the cabin looked too small, but it was very functional. For the two of us, it was fine; but it would have been impossible to add another person. We take turns getting out of bed and getting dressed (my dh gets up earlier than I do) so it worked fine for us. The closet space was very small but again, it worked for us and was functional. In spite of taking too many clothes - many more than I used - we found a place for everything. The bed was fine for us, but it may have had an extra pad on it because I have read where others thought it was hard. The walls are very thin. We were lucky that our neighbors did not snore or talk loud because others said they had problems. Our location was great. Aft deck 8. Make sure your cabin is not under The Spinaker lounge because you can hear the boom boom boom of the music and that is a VERY active lounge, A lot of fun stuff goes on there pretty late at night. WE were happy with our cabin but it was just lucky that our neighbors were quiet. We tried to keep our tv low and be considerate of others. There were no children in our area. I loved the magnifying glass which I have never seen before.

Could be better By: capitalmom
Nice room, well laid out but it is really really loud with noise from the theatre. I also disliked being so close to the front of the ship as it is the least stable.

NCL Dawn to Bermuda By: rosebud210
Our cabin was an ocean view. We had an obstructed view and the ocean could only be seen through a rescue boat hanging outside our window. We were unaware of how obstructed it was when making the reservation.

8138 Great Cabin, Nice large Window. Very easy location to access the ship. I have nothing but positives from this Cabin and would use it again if available. we had the 2 beds put together as 1 big bed. This room has a bunk bed folded up on 1 wall but it is not in the way while it is folded up, also had a rolling cot under one of our beds, so the room could sleep 4 although that would be a bit crowded. This room is perfect for 2 or even 3 travellers. There was a strange banging sound durring rough seas, almost like a hatch was not fully closed above the room (on the outside of the ship). Front desk was willing to relocate us, but the banging did stop so we stayed in the room and enjoyed our 7 day cruise!
