This cabin is a "hull" or "enclosed" cabin which means that it is not as open as the typical balcony. I absolutely LOVED IT!! So much so, that if I cruise on Norwegian again, I will seek out this balcony type over the traditional cabins. It provides more privacy so that you cannot look out and around into your neighbor's cabin, and you cannot see them (or they, you) reflected in the glass. Also, you cannot hear your neighbors on the balcony because it is more enclosed.
This cabin's downside: it is over the Stardust Theater which means that you can hear the thump-thump of the performances every night. If you turn in early, this is definitely NOT the cabin for you. It is noisy. Also, it is over the Promenade deck 7 which allows smoking, so if you do not abide smokers, you will find this to be a problem as well. But for privacy, you can't beat it.

Very small and colors very gaudy. Had maintances work on vanity twice before they finally fixed it. Closet very small, we had to fold clothes and put on shelves. Bed so close to wall you had to crawl into bed.
We had the First room when you walked into hall from elevator but never heard any noise. Read entire member review >>
Our room was clean, it had a coffee maker, mini frig, and hair blow dryer. The view was okay but closed in with metal as it is near the life boats. The channels were few but they did show movies. Read entire member review >>
Nice side view balcony. Bed was comfortable, AC worked very well and cooled the room off fast. Really like the bathroom arrangement with three compartments for shower, sink, and toilet. Read entire member review >>
The balcony of cabin 8022 is smaller than the typical balconies, but we found it adequate. Cabin was quiet, with adequate closet space for a 7 day summer cruise, and beds were comfortable Read entire member review >>
Cabin was adequate. Bed comfortable. As ship rocked and rolled, some walls creaked. Smokers smoke from adjoining cabins came into our cabin through open balcony door, so we couldn't really enjoy being on the balcony or to leave our door open. Restroom was small, but it was ok. Being on the port side allowed us to watch most of the docking process. Some noise from occupants in next door cabins came through the walls, but we weren't there that much so it wasn't a big deal.
