These Mini-Suites sleep up to four guests, making them ideal if you want to bring the kids. They have two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed as well as a sitting area, luxury bath with shower and additional bedding to sleep two additional guests. Because they are aft-facing suites, the view from your private balcony is truly amazing.
Cabin 11654 is not only an Aft-Facing Mini-Suite, it is also Handicapped Accessible. There is plenty of room to maneuver, and if you need a larger bathroom, this is the place for you! The bed was a little hard for my back and shoulder, but our room steward, Pablo, added padding until it was comfortable for me. I really appreciated his efforts! The room is quiet for the most part. A few mornings towards the end of the cruise, we were woken up around 5 a.m. by the sound of tables and chairs being moved around above us in the Great Outdoors. The seas got a little rough, so we think the crew had to secure them differently. Otherwise, this was a very quiet, spacious cabin, and we enjoyed the great view off the balcony.

Cruise ship cabins are small! This one is pleasant and you're paying for the aft facing view and seclusion. We noticed no appreciable noise from the Garden Cafe above but did sleep with the balcony door open... listen to the wake, very relaxing. No corridor foot traffic was a plus. Cabin has a decent tub and shower just like at home, no weird circular curtain arrangement! Bed was comfy. You can pay more and get more, or less and get less. This is right on the median of everything. Balcony has two chairs and a table but not sun loungers. Read entire member review >>
This is a very nice handicap cabin. The aft-facing view when leaving port can be quite beautiful, depending on the direction you're heading. and can give you a chance to see the entire island, assuming a late enough sunset. You will always see where you've been, not where you're going! It has a powered balcony door - so make sure you don't need to get outside or back inside in a hurry. The door also has a lock switch, so if the door isn't working, check the lock.The emergency call button is in the middle of the bed. We had the beds made up into one bed, so if they were separated, it might be be between them, which would make more sense. I set the alarm off while moving my pillows around one evening. Beware! If you do set the alarm off, you will get a call, and you have to press the all-clear button by the door to clear the alarm. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was very comfortable and the balcony made early morning and late nights snacks very romantic. Our steward was amazing! The step into the bathroom took getting used to but the bathroom was very spacious. Read entire member review >>
Great choice. We had ample room for all our luggage (2 persons), lots of closet and drawer space. Lots of hangers. The bathroom was a good size and layout complete with a tub. The balcony had room for two chairs and a small table. The view was fabulous and we saw the sunrise every morning except for the last day. The only downside was that the shower gel was not the best and we were glad we had brought our own bar of soap. Read entire member review >>
Loved this cabin and aft balcony view! We loved the location and using the aft elevators and stairwell because they were never crowded and very convenient to the Garden Cafe and Great Outdoors. Overall cabin and bath were spacious for just the 2 of us. Was a bit pricey but we splurged being this was our 30th Anniversary cruise! Read entire member review >>
Aft-Facing mini-suite -- when you're sailing east/west as we did, you get to see sunsets, sunrises, and even moon-rises from your balcony. And little-to-no-wind. Heaven! Great storage, generous bathroom, extremely comfortable bed, and convenient sitting-area that can be curtained off. Only drawback is that this particular cabin is slightly smaller than a couple of its neighbors -- check with NCL at the time of booking. No noise from the Great Outdoors Cafe upstairs, and a quiet corridor outside with little foot-traffic. Read entire member review >>
Room deck 11 dead aft if ship - room 656 - (mini suite) View is very good but balcony is not real large - 2 chairs , not 4 like other ships. Room is on top of buffet (nice) but under upper deck outside dinning . At night (midnight) noise for about 30 minutes as they clean upper area. Not real bad .Closet doors hits bed wont open all the way. Dinky TV with bad remote response. Tacky Pink couch- Wife said there was little room between wall and end of bed.Bath room was so-so. Shower temp moves around about 10 times while using . (might be cause its on the end of the plumbing run). Water is VERY hot, so watch out. Bathroom is a prefab plastic shell made as cheep as you can make one. The bed was nice an comfy. Room temp controls are good. Over all room was not as good as on others cruise lines.

Room 11154 AF mini suite: We had 3 adults and fit very comfortable. The balcony was AFT and I recommend that to all. Bathroom was very large with a tub. The view is outstanding from the back of the ship and there was virtually no noise and no foot traffic. Crew was great and always accomodated us with all our requests. We had lots of storage space and lots of hangers. Read entire member review >>
