Balcony (BB)
Decks: Deck 10
loved the location of this. Two floors up to the buffet to grab coffee in the morning from the GOOD machine. Aft of the stairs, so no one walking by. Plenty of storage, and the balcony got a lot of sun.

Comfortable bed, everything was in working order. Arthur, our steward, was friendly and makes some great towel animals! I especially enjoyed the monkey the night the ship was rocking a bit. Gave us a chuckle when we entered the room.

We had two twin beds and a sofa bed in our room. There was a good amount of room during the day but when they put the sofa bed together for sleeping, the balcony was not accessible. I traveled with my 76 year old grandma and she could not crawl over the bed to get to the balcony at night. Since we went to Alaska, the sunset is after 11pm and our sofa bed was made at around 7pm.

We were in cabin 10642, which is a handicapped balcony cabin aft. It was wonderful. Very spacious. The bathroom had a fold-down chair in the shower, which was my main concern. It was roomy and convenient. The mirror tilts to your needs, and there are rails all around. We had the two beds pushed together to make a queen. The only problem with this arrangement is the emergency call button is then located between the pillows! We accidentally pressed it twice - once while we were asleep and once while watching TV. Very embarrassing! On a positive note, I can report that the desk calls almost immediately to see if there is an emergency! :D From a practical standpoint, there are two 110 outlets right next to the bed on the vanity. This is very convenient if you have a CPAP or other medical appliance which needs to be plugged in. There is a third 110 outlet across the room, but this is where the coffee maker is plugged in. Some (my husband) would say this is another medical appliance! :D

This was a handicap balcony cabin. When the two beds were joined to make one bed, the alarm button was in the middle of the bed. My wife and I each set it off by bumping into it.

CABIN We wanted a balcony cabin and didn't really care where it was on the ship so we decided to go with a "Balcony Guarantee" (purchase the least expensive balcony cabin and a few weeks before sailing you will receive your cabin assignment. You are guaranteed a balcony cabin or better). The NCL website states the balcony cabins are 205 sq ft, I figured I can't go wrong with that. How I wish I had brought my tape measure. It sure felt small. My 184 sq ft cabin on RCCL Mariner of the Seas felt much bigger than what I had on the Pearl. Perhaps it was the layout? The bed was right at the end of the hallway. One bed was against the wall. The bedside table was literally wedged between the two twin beds. Then the sofa was wedged up against the other bed and that was against the balcony slider. It all felt very crammed. Plenty of closet space. Too few hangers and they are those awful detachable ones. Three drawers. Shelves. A few hooks outside the bathroom. You certainly have room to store things. And large luggage even fits under the beds. The bed was short, but the most comfortable I have had on a cruise ship. The vanity area is small. We were never able to use the vanity since the corner of the bed was in the way of where the stool would go.We had a coffeepot which was great. The sofa was comfortable. The tv was tiny. There was a table and chair under where the tv was on a shelf. I'd have preferred to not have the table and chair and just had space. It was very difficult to find a spot to dress without bumping a wall or a bed. The balcony was spacious. Enough for two chairs and a small table. Plenty of room to move around. The bathroom was wonderful. I wouldn't have minded a smaller bathroom to give the cabin more space. Large sink with plenty of counter space. Three small shelves for personal items. Two towel racks. 4 hooks. The shower was large enough for two people. It wasn't the typical cruise line shower that looks like a capsule. It even had a clothesline. The toilet area had a gliding door you could close. Before booking I had read that the room had a mini fridge. HA. It was a mini bar that was crammed with items to sell, no room for my own items.

I travelled alone, but found my cabin to be more than ample of space. I like the way the bathroom is laid ouit where the toilet is seperated from the shower with a mirror and sink area as a divider between the two. Also, I found the bedding to be plush...always crisp and the linens smelling freshly cleaned. I really like the HUGE throw pillows to accompany the standard sleeping pillows. A wide selecton of movies available for free day and night in the cabin. Balcony was more than adequate, comfortably accommodaes two people.

Cabin was nicely appointed. Many drawers and shelves for clothes. Bathroom divided with glass doors to separate the shower, sink, and toilet. Only one person can fit in there, so you really cannot shower, when someone is using the sink. The beds were fine, but if you used the fold out bed that was a sofa, you could not get to the balcony. We didn't use the sofa bed. It really should not be in there. there was a table, and chairs, also. A nice touch. also a coffee pot, and TV, and refrigerator/mini bar. Water is filtered and OK to drink. The balconies are close and you can see everyone, and hear them, but the location was quiet and away from the public areas and lounges. No noise what so ever from working staff. Near the elevator, which was convenient. We were on deck 10, which was great.

Not enough space between foot of bed and wall. Tough to get around, especially if you have some mobility problems. An extra 8 inches would have been nice. Lots of storage. When sofa bed is out, it's impossible to get around. And there's absolutely no table or desk space. If you want room service, you can't put the tray anywhere.

The actual cabin space was fairly good. It was a little tight at the end of the bed area - two people could not pass each other, as the room was too short. Also, there is a divider separating the toilet from the rest of the bathroom. At first glance it looked like a good idea, but when using the toilet we realized that when sitting on the commode, your knees were agains that wall and your arms were squeezed at your sides. Have no idea how overweight persons can cope in that tight area. The shower area however, was more spacious than most we've encountered on other ships.
