Balcony Cabins

48 Reviews
These staterooms sleep up to two guests and come with two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed. Also includes a sitting area and floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open to a private balcony.

Balcony (BC)
Decks: Deck 9
Too much furniture. Bathroom really small I read other reviews and Yes the bathrooms are really small unless you purchase a mini suite or higher. The room felt tight and you only get 8 tv channels which repeat after 2 days. Sorry not again.

Loved it! shrutisahu
Balcony room on the 9th floor right before the aft facing rooms. Was a good walk from the elevators but was a good thing for us as we ate alot and never visited the gym. The walk was very much needed after all the eating we did. The room location was great with respect to no disturbance, great room service, great room steward (steward in rooms near the aft facing balcony/suite was assigned to us and he was great). The best part is Steward makes the room twice a day and always left a towel art animal on the bed after the 2nd service.

Best Trip Ever! grannyp
The cabin was clean & well kept. Enough storage for two. When beds are twin it was tight, but when moved together a little more room. We used the balcony daily for continental breakfast and it was great. Also for the glacier viewing. Quiet deck, close to elevator, and Al Francis was terrific steward. I would chose this cabin again.

We were on the Jewel in July 2014 and stayed in an inside room (10077), but this time we spent the extra for the balcony. When opening the door the closet and bathroom layout are very similar. As compared to the inside the Balcony bed is placed on the side wall. The balcony has a convertible sofa bed, and this space is the biggest benefit as it allows a small seating area that doesn't exist in the inside rooms. The balcony room is nicer than an inside room, but I will continue to look at the price difference when booking as there are plenty of great views available from public areas, so I don't feel the need for a balcony for this. Also the balcony doors do not do as good a job at blocking sound, so we found it easier to sleep in the inside room.

As mentioned above, the cabin was the smallest we have experienced in our dozen or so cruises thus far. Bathroom especially tight although the shower door was nice instead of the usual shower curtain. Ship seemed to be efficiently run and well maintained.

Great room. Loved being on the port side. You could the ports of Cozumel and Roatan from our balcony. Room was not huge but was comfortable for 3. I stayed in this room with 2 of my children. My husband and daughter were across the hall in an inside cabin in 9507. 9514 was definitely tight when the sofa bed was pulled out. Not a ton of storage. But the location was great. Very quiet area. No complaints!

Had more room than other cruise lines and larger bathroom. Best facilities we have had to date ( have sailed on four different lines). Excellent house keeping.

Great deck to be situated . Close to the elevator. We were on the perfect side of the ship while cruising Sawyer Glacier and while coming into port,we could always see the ship dock which was fun.

the cabin was smaller than what the NCL video portrayed it to be. It shows a 19 inch or bigger flat screen in the video and what we recieved was a 13 inch or smaller dinosaur, it was very very disappointing AND DISGUSTING. there was no coffee maker in room. the steward for our room was awesome. 9016

Cabin 9522 is in much need of reupholstering and new rugs as this ship is really starting to show its age. We moved the couch to a different area of the cabin and the rugs needed a through cleaning. The balcony had a dirty, wet washcloth on it all week from the last cruise.

9150 Handicapped balcony cabin very convenient to AFT stairs and elevators including one designated to go to MDR ramp level (others go to stairs only level). Garden buffet 12 AFT also very convenient as Moderno/Blue Lagoon Deck 8 midships. 1 1/2 x the size of standard balcony cabin, 36" doorway fits scooters and wheelchairs, ramp to balcony available. Bathroom is ADA compliant with sink, toilet and no-threshold shower ideal for WC. Call bells and touch pad light switches also located at WC height. Quiet location between 2 decks of cabins.

cabin 9050 is a balcony located on the starboard side and forward. Cabin is quiet and offered easy access to the forward stairs and elevator. We didn't hear any noise above, below or outside the stateroom. Being on the starboard side offered great views of the ship arriving in Ketchikan and Juneau. No issues with the room.

This is a family cabin and sleeps 4 comfortably. However, it will not sleep 4 adults, but if you are traveling with younger children(below 10) this cabin is a great option.

Cabin 9654. Good cabin and balcony, quite close to stair well. No noise as located between 2 stateroom decks. Occasional 'ping' heard from the lift, but you get used to it!

We had booked 3 balcony cabins, 2 on deck 10 and ours on deck 9. Our cabin was right at the aft elevator bank, but it was larger and much more comfortable than the cabins on deck 10. It was still quiet, so we loved it.

Our room had plenty of space for two people. Bathroom also had enough space to move around as needed. Felt a lot of ship movement from the cabin. Could not hear noice from hallway noice.

I was in cabin 9046. It was very comfortable. The bathroom was not very clean when we first entered but, after we called about it, our stewards cleaned it again and it was satisfactory for the rest of the cruise. I like the balcony and sat out there and read quite a bit.

Balcony room 9008 forward. Great room, quiet, nice balcony. Probably would get balcony cabin mid ship next time, for less walking.

Our Cabin was a balcony and it is larger than other ships, the bathroom was a good size for the room, a little cramp getting in the closet, we were on deck 9 forward very quiet.

Cabin 9006 is very near the front of the ship. I'm told that the front is a little bumpier than cabins toward the middle and back. Since this was my first cruise, I have nothing to compare this to but a couple of nights, it was pretty rough to me. The cabin itself was small but very organized with enough storage space for both of us. The balcony was great and the room was very quiet. We had no problems with this cabin at all and our steward was absolutely wonderful. The room was spotless and and clean every time we returned to it.
