Cabin was clean. The room steward was very kind and easy to communicate with. He was very attentive to our needs. The balcony was in need of upkeep. There were salt water stains on the glass. There was dirt (from hands) on the railing. Otherwise, it was a nice cabin. Bed was comfortable. Read entire member review >>
average, linens were gross (holes in the sheets and stains too), steward was hit and miss; one time he put away the bed that turns into a sofa and other times he didn't, shower nice but the sliding doors rattled due to motion of the ship (not so good when trying to sleep), dust build up on the counters throughout the week.

Water pressure was good, bed was comfortable and clean. A bit cramped for three people, but manageable. Plenty of fluffy towels and pillows. Carpet shows wear and tear. Had three large suitcases and all of them fit underneath the bed. Bathroom was clean, but small so beware if you are larger in size. Read entire member review >>
The room was wonderful ! It had lots of storage and I particularly loved the bed and the bathroom. I actually liked the shower and I really prefer a tub ! The shower doesn't just pour down like a falls, but can be lifted down and controlled! There was more storage than I anticipated and I always pack too much! We never heard any noise. Beautiful views!! The bed was the most comfortable of all! Read entire member review >>
The last balcony on the starboard side was very quiet. It was a long walk to the front of the ship, but we didn't mind walking off some of those desserts. Deck 9 has cabins both above and below so there is no noise from public areas to worry about. It is also mid way between deck 7 and 12 where the majority of the places we wanted to get to were located. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was great, and we had a super steward. However, we could not use the balcony as much as we would have liked because there were smokers on either side of us, including chain smokers forward of us. If you are sensitive to cigarette smoke, be warned that NCL allows smoking on all balconies! Read entire member review >>
9656; port, aft.
Convenient to aft elevators, without heavy traffic in hall; seemed to be made-up early by steward.
Lots of places to store your stuff.
No external noises or distractions. We had boisterous neighbors on both sides of us, but once we closed balcony door we could barely hear anything.
I recommend this stateroom. Read entire member review >>
Good sized room for 2 adults and 1 child. Clean, tidy, although initially the balcony was not clean on arrival, but the cleaners were still working when we boarded the ship.
Nice and quiet location when we needed a rest from the crowds of people. Great view from our side of the ship. Very happy with the room and location of the room. Read entire member review >>
Great bathroom, awkward vanity area, great cabin location in proximity to stairs, elevator and ship activities. Would probably upgrade to mini-suite if possible on next cruise. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 9632--Cigarette burns on carpet. Loved having the coffee and robes in the room. the room was small, but quite adequate. Lots of space to put things. Loved the bathroom. Shower was nice and big. Great location. Very quiet. Read entire member review >>
Our balcony cabin was ample for 2 people - area was exceptionally clean and tidy and kept that way by our stewards who were always happy and eager to please ie extra teabags, milk etc. The balcony area was bigger than on Ocean Village and was glass fronted so you always had a great view. Could not fault either Balcony or Cabin itself. Read entire member review >>
Balcony stateroom which is a must for Alaska. Ample space under bed for large suitcases. Closet space and drawers were adequate. Toilet, sink and shower were adequate - always hot water when I took a shower. Couldn't hear loudspeaker announcements until well into the cruise we were directed to turn the volume all the way up on the TV channel that showed a picture of the bow of the ship.

Cabin 9520- balcony was good. We were near the very front of the ship so it's a pretty long walk to the back of the ship (ie. Summer Palace) but really close to the entertainment areas. Organization of the room was excellent. Plenty of storage!!! Read entire member review >>
Cabin 9522 is in the perfect location. It is right by the stairs/elevator and very quiet. The bed is extremely comfortable. Storage for two was more than adequate; suitcases/packages fit easily under the bed. We would book this same cabin again. Read entire member review >>
Adequate size room for a 5-day cruise; plenty of storage, lots of hangers, roomy bathroom. The deck is adequate for sail away parties up to 6 people. The beds are just the best...as good as home! Stay aft if you want quiet. Read entire member review >>
We had a balcony cabin and there were two adults and one child. The cabin was very small and space was cramped. When beds were opened up in the evening, there was very little room to move about. There was not enough closet space for the number of people that we had residing in the room. I had expected the balcony to be larger. It was really only big enough for two.

Handicapped Aft Balcony Cabin. Good closet space, automatic light. Huge bathroom, roll-in shower with removable seat. Very stained carpeting over a large area. Nice balcony, automatic doors with locking device. Very poor lighting in the cabin. Phone is across the cabin from the bed. If you have difficulty moving, hard to get there from the bed. Easy access to elevator, not noisy. Cigarette smell if leave the balcony door open. Read entire member review >>
