Family Balcony Cabins

18 Reviews
Norwegian Sky staterooms are perfect if you want to bring the kids along. Sleeps up to three guests and includes a sitting area, two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed and a pull out sofa to accommodate one more. Not to mention the floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open to a private balcony for the whole family to enjoy.

Fun Weekend in Bahamas MiamiBeachMom
We were in connecting cabins, which were 2057 and 2058. The rooms were on the 10th floor towards the back of the ship. Our room steward, Pilit, provided us with a door stopper to keep the connecting door open. Having young children, his was very helpful. This is the first time we were ever provided with a door stopper for a connecting room. The room were in a convenient location, because we were very close to the stairs and elevators and a short walk to the buffet, which was one floor above us. My kids easily went alone to the buffet because it was so close to our rooms. Our cabins were clean and nicely decorated. The room steward was very helpful. He made sure we had plenty of clean towels and he tidied our room daily. There was a small fridge in the rooms which we used to store bottled water. The rooms are on the small size, and there are only a few draws, so don't bring too many clothes. Having a balcony was nice and made the room seem bigger. It was smooth sailing the entire weekend. I hardly felt the ship move.

The cabin was smaller than the one I had on the Getaway. Smaller ship so not upset. We had Jose and he was fabulous. He remembered all of our names. We had 3 rooms for 7 family members. I was very impressed with him! The beds were okay and the pillows were super soft.

Over all this was a FANTASTIC ROOM! It's the last balcony towards aft of the ship, and there was NO noise issues it does have a connecting room, but again no complaints there. I like having the port hole, and glass door in the room. Located very near the stairs and elevators, just a quick walk to food, pool, spa, and gym! The shower was micro size of course, and the bathroom kind of smelled like pee on the first night. I rated cabin POOR because of the black hairs on the shower floor upon arrival, hairs on the bathroom floor, and on the bed top comforter. (This was cleaned up by the room attendant the first night) The case the bed sat on (boxspring casing) was also not clean, it appeared to have gooey yellow crude and fuzzies in\on it. The carpet had what appeared burn marks from cigarettes.We asked for an upgrade to compensate for the cleanliness, but we were told by the Guest Services Desk it was a weekend cruise, and none was offered since the cruise was full.

Balcony cabin has fold out "full size" bed. Other beds are two twin size or combined to a kingsize. Balcony has two chairs and small table. Bathroom was adequate and similar to other cruise lines. Small round shape shower. Shampoo, Shower gel, and Hand Soap provided in dispensers. The beds were very comfortable and the linens soft. You get two generously sized soft pillows. Only negative at times were you had one bath and hand towel (and washcloth) per person. Beach towels were provided. No cabin bathrobe. We loved our view from deck 10 and it was an easy walk up to deck 11 for buffet food and outside (AFT) eating. AFT dining room was convenient down to deck 5. Elevators close by to our location. Our room steward was awesome. Adjusted beds to accommodate my parents,my mom's swollen leg, a downdraft from a wall vent, etc. We had rooms 0257, 0258, and 0259.

Amazing! alonabatt

I booked a "guaranteed" balcony room for super super cheap just a week or so in advance, and ended up with a "family balcony" room. It was a pretty good size, and the balcony was so great. My boyfriend and I enjoyed breakfast on the balcony, as well as some drinks at night while looking at the stars. We loved having our own little private outdoor space. Only downside was having to smell cigarette smoke from the people on the balcony next door basically every time we were on our balcony. But it was worth it, especially for the inexpensive price. There is only one plug in the room, and one in the bathroom. The pull out sofa was a nice feature. We didn't actually use it for sleeping, but I did open it and saw that it wasn't the cleanest. There was some kind of sheet stuffed underneath out of reach, as well as dust and hair. Yuck. But since I wasn't going to be using it, I didn't care too much. We only used it for sitting. All in all, I LOVED the room for the price I paid for it. Can't imagine cruising without a balcony ever again!

0049

Our balcony was 10 AFT cabin number 0049. We had a great view of the ports and when were "parked" in the ocean.

The closet was not big and could only hold one large suitcase. There were plenty of hangers. The bathroom was small but worked out okay for us, we were near the elevator but chose to walk up or down at times, the hallway was quiet and although our cabin stated it can sleep three it was really suitable for two.

we where in room 0050. Deck 10. Close to the elevators and only one floor to food. We liked our room. We had a balcony room. I would get one of these if you can. 10th floor we saw every port, enjoyed our nights and mornings on it. Bathroom is a bit small, shower very small. But it was good and we didn't need much more.

9259 - had some issues with a "teakettle noise" when at sea thru the door of the adjoining room. Due to VERY high winds. Staff sent carpenters to address it but it continued off and on. Stuck towel under door -- helped. We were never in room anyway!!!! Great location tho and we loved the balcony. Had a queen bed rather than two twins. Hard bed but we like that. Pillows very big (I like small mushy) but my daughter loved them. Nice reading lite overhead for me. Sometimes heard people in adjoining room but not an issue...

Cabin number 9260: Quiet location that is sandwiched between decks with only cabins on them. Small room but adequate storage. Very small shower with a shower curtain. Small balcony but adequate with two chairs and a small table. This cabin is an adjoining cabin and therefore you can very easily hear what is going on in the adjoining cabin. This is due to the door between the two cabins. Would suggest not booking an adjoining cabin due to being able to hear what is going on in the next room.

Connected cabins 9267 & 9268: 4 tiny drawers only, air runs continually blowing directly on face in bed, all else good.
