Up to four guests can stay in these Oceanview Staterooms. Includes two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed and additional bedding that sleep two more, as well as a porthole to enjoy the view.
The cabin was actually fairly well laid out and in very good condition. The "couch" was obviously intended to serve as an additional bed for someone with a small child along as it was quite deep and not very comfy. The tv reception was really bad, even for their in-house programs which, considering the advances in audio/video was truly surprising. Grainy picture and terrible sound. Did not matter much as did not spend much time watching. Read entire member review >>
As we explored the ship my wife's bag made it to the cabin, and I popped in to see if my bag had, it had not. The cabin steward introduced himself to me and said he would skip the nightly turndown since I was in the cabin, I tried to tell him I was leaving for dinner but he disappeared as fast as the strawberry man. This set the tone for his work or lack of the rest of the cruise. I have been on 20 or more cruises with 4 different lines. This was the worst cabin steward I ever had. He left the shower drain out leaning against the wall 4 days of the 10 day cruise. He did not leave mints or turn down the beds and the floors were not vacuumed clean on several days. I know because the electrician had to replace the light over the vanity and he left stripped wires all over the vanity and floor. The next day the light failed again the repairs done again and more trash was left. After 3 days I struck the light with my hand and it worked the rest of the cruise. The TV was small 13 -15 inches. The toilet area left me with my knees against the wall and getting up required the use of the handicapped bar and a difficult turn to flush maneuver to exit. Read entire member review >>
Tiny closet tiny room no room to more around desks from beds. Soap and shampoo in shower were very low end.We did not share more then 10 words with our room steward the entire trip. Read entire member review >>
Avoid FWD Deck 4. Cabin 4500. I had originally booked a Window Cabin on deck 8 with obstructed view. My Internet consultant talked me into a porthole window. Beware, that these forward cabins are located over engines the are used to steer into the dock and to leave the dock. If you are sleeping or sitting in your cabin at these times a noise similar to that experienced when standing directly next to a jet engine will engulf you.
There are no coffee makers in the rooms on deck 4. Ask your steward to supply one and it will appear.
Close you porthole at night otherwise if you dock at night you may have a forklift operator on the dock at the same eye-level as you. Put some clothes on!
During rough seas the water pounds against the side increasing the noise level inside the room. Its like sleeping in a car wash with three people trying to tip over your car.
Get a room mid ship or aft. Less rockin. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 4516 has plenty of storage a tight but adequate bathboom and a small deepset porthole. At night we would hear a sound similar to a large printing press. This would continue until 3 or 4am. Read entire member review >>
Cabin: Nothing special about them, granted beds are exceptionally comfortable. The T.V set is very small and there is hardly anything to watch. Almost 90% of the channels are dedicated to NCL advertising. It could only get E, CNBC and ESPN2. No option for pay per view or DVD. Read entire member review >>
Very quiet - a huge plus. Very cramped (smallest we've had). Beds very comfortable. Nice bathroom. We had inside cabins. Not much space at all compared to other inside cabins we've had. I'm 5'5", slim, and my knees kept hitting the wall when I tried to sit on the toilet. Read entire member review >>
ROOM 5061 - You've heard it all already. The rooms ARE small, but if you have traveled to Europe or cruised before, you are used to small accommodations. The rooms were very nicely finished and had mahogany detailing in the cabinetry similar to what you might find on a fine yacht. Although small, the bathroom in the cabin was so well appointed, I would have been happy to have it as a bathroom in my home. The cabin and bath were spotless and were maintained that way the whole cruise. Again the mahogany trip was carried into the bath and although it was a vinyl covering in the toilet area and shower, it was well done and looked good. Both the toilet and the shower had sliding privacy doors which would have made it possible for two people to be in the bath at the same time. There was shower gel and shampoo provided in the shower, liquid soap dispenser in the vanity area, and a bottle of premium lotion provided in the bath. The room was quiet and enjoyable, except for the last morning, due to it's proximity to the bow thrusters, docking back in Miami was an early morning wake-up call, whether you wanted one or not.
