Overall a good cruise tigergirl09
As I mentioned above, the layout of the room made it seem smaller than the Carnival ships we've been on. The bathroom was nice, however, and had a plexiglass shower enclosure, instead of a curtain. Also, plenty of shelf space in bathroom.

Our cabin was fine for us two. Now our balcony was AMAZING! Very spacious!!! Can't see myself going to a regular balcony again.

Just Okay JoeKwonDo
Adequate space and design. Bathroom was fine and the shower was larger than most though there was no water pressure and the sprayer had only one setting. Toilet flush was on way to breaking so you had to bang on it.

14278 AFT
The cabin had pros and Cons. Pros: Great view, very private as the walls between balconies are straight up. Unlike the aft balconies on lower decks. 2- lounge chairs and a small table on balcony. Quick access to the buffet for coffee, breakfast and late night snacks. Cons: 14278 has the smallest balcony, try to get balconies adjacent. Spice H2O on deck 16 is where all the late night parties happen...Either stay up all night and participate or make sure you have ear plugs!!! The bass sound from the music travels right down to your cabin and will keep you up all night. Not sure how it affected the lower aft balconies.

The ABC's of the Getaway Bradley Wilson
We had Aft Balcony Cabin 14278 (B1). There were pros and cons to this as well. I will try and list as many as I can. Pros – its location works both for it and against it. You’re at the back of the ship so if you want anything at the front of the ship, it’s a walk. However, the view off the stern is amazing. We didn’t notice any noise from propellers or thrusters or anything, even on port days. Deck 14 is the top deck at the back for the aft balcony cabins. As such, it is located directly below the Garden Cafe buffet which was great. In the mornings, I would go upstairs and get a couple of coffees and some sweets and bring them back to our cabin where we would sit outside on our lounge chairs (this cabin came with two chaise lounges and a small table) and have our morning coffee. When we were ready, it was about a two-minute walk up one flight of stairs and we were right in the buffet. We didn’t notice any noise per se coming from the buffet in our cabin at any time. The balcony of this cabin is probably one of the smallest of the aft balconies. We could tell as we looked over the side it was the width of two panes of glass, whereas the balcony adjacent to ours was two and a half panes of glass wide. The other thing about the balcony is unlike an aft balcony on one of the lower decks, the walls of the balcony go straight up which makes it even more private. Our cabin steward was Sudesh, an amazing young man who really made our cruise. He was so helpful and responsive. The cons to the cabin was primarily the noise coming down from Spice H2O on party nights which was just about every night of the cruise. One other person mentioned this but I really feel it merits mentioning again. If you are sensitive to noise, you will absolutely need ear plugs. It wasn’t so much the music we heard, but the pounding of the bass beat that came all the way down through the walls. I didn’t hear it on the first night because I was so exhausted, but by night two, it was starting to become a problem. However, once I had the earplugs in, I couldn’t hear it at all. The other thing I found useful from other reviewers was to make sure to bring some sort of extension plug or an outlet extender that has more than one socket in it because there is only one plug in the room (2 sockets) and if you’re charging tablets or phones or a camera and you need to charge multiple devices at the same time, you will definitely need one of these. Your cruise card needs to be inserted in the slot immediately inside your stateroom on the wall to turn on your power (the mini bar is independent from this – we stored bottled water in here).

Wheel chair accessible. Shower had low pressure & too close to wall. Comfy bed & pillows. Nice black out curtains. Big balcony and fantastic views--had two chairs & 1 small table. Room has automatic door that open/close. Have to open door to hear announcements. Bed can vibrate but didn't try it.

Nice and clean. Plenty of storage space! The bed is harder than I am used to but I slept like a baby every night! There was a lot of vibration in the room and I felt the boat rock. It was due to being in the back of the ship because when I was walking around the ship, I never noticed the movement, only until I got back into the room. After a while in the room you sort of forget about it and not think about it anymore, so it was fine. There's a coffee maker in the room which was a plus! The balcony was a good size for us. We had 2 lounge chairs, 2 regular chairs and a small table on the balcony. There was a roof so the sun was on the chairs for part of the day depending on the position of the ship to the sun. It was everything I imagined it to be!

The cabin was fine - plenty of storage space. It was quite noisy when something was going on up on deck 16 but earplugs worked well. The bathroom was well laid out and a good shower with plenty of hot water. I was pleased that I could charge my electric toothbrush with a european 2 pin plug!

11912

We had 3 aft staterooms on deck 11. Cabin #’s 11912, 11314, & 11310. The deck plans online make you think each cabin may be a different size or shape. They are not. All the cabins were the same size and layout of any balcony cabin on the ship. Cabins 11912 & 11314 had the bed next to the closet. Cabin 11310 had the bed next to the balcony. Now for the best part of an aft cabin, the balcony. They are LARGE. About 10 feet deep. Each aft balcony had 2 loungers, 2 chairs, and a small table. Nice and private too. You could only see up or down to the balcony above or below you if you came out to the rail otherwise no one could see you sitting down. They provide a great view of both sides of the ship and the wake behind. Plus the Captain backed into every dock which gave you a great view of the islands at port. NOTE: if you like to hear the ocean at night but want your AC to stay on just unlock the balcony door and keep it closed. Not sure if I can go back to a regular balcony again! It was so nice to be able to make a cup of coffee and layout on the balcony every morning. Yes I said make coffee. The balcony cabins each had its own small coffee maker. A first for me on a cruise. RCCL and DCL do not have in room coffee makers. Nice benefit NCL!

Great cabin! Huge balcony! Only problem was you're right under the tropicana room and on Latin night is loud! But some of the best views on the cruise ship!:)
