Cabin 9006
I always reserve a balcony. The room was adequate. It was in the front of the boat as we didn't want to pay double and took run of house. Smaller in size than the usual balcony. The bathroom which usually is very small with a shower curtain was much bigger on this boat. Plenty of space to store toiletries. No shower curtain!! It had a sliding glass door. It was nice to have an actual shower. Usually the curtain sticks to you when the water is on and the thought that comes to mind is wonder who this was stuck to last week!! The sink in the middle and the toilet on the other side with another sliding glass door. This explains why the room seemed a bit smaller. The bathroom had an awful sulfur smell which they rectified by putting a wet paper towel over the drain. It worked somewhat. There were plenty of towels, tissues and toilet paper at all times. They cleaned the room twice daily Kudos to Eugene!!

Rooms are small and the drawers are tiny. If you like a hard bed you will like the mattress. The electricity outlets are European so bring a converter. The bathroom tile can use some updating. I like the solid shower door as opposed to a curtain. The balcony glass and ledge gets very salty- ask them to wipe it down occasionally. I heard they are dry docking the ship in January to update it....

Love having a balcony and the location was quiet. This room wasn't as nice as the one on the Norwegian Jade which is a newer ship.

Cabin 9000
I'd stay away from cabin 9000. Quiet location. Toilet did not flush consistently. Could take up to 5-10 minutes to flush. They did a repair and it was better but still an issue at times for the whole cruise. The cabin steward didn't seem very concerned . Always flushed but at times there was a delay. With 3 in the cabin this was an issue. Sink was chipped. Stains on the bathroom floor. One US outlet in the cabin area but if you had converters you had 3 outlets. Smallest patio I have ever seen but I think that was the ship not our cabin.

The bed was very, very comfortable. The couch was in very bad shape. Bathroom had very bad mold problem. It was great to have a desk in the room. Would have liked more comfortable chairs on the balcony

Other than the bathroom which had a super small potty area that is enclosed the room was great. The balcony was a nice size and our steward John took excellent care of us. There were no odd smells and it was nice to be in a room separated from other rooms and near the elevator. We never heard noise. :)

Cabin 9686
Our balcony cabin was clean and comfortable. It is located above the Stardust Theater and while you will hear some noise from there while a performance is going on, the shows ended usually by 10:30-11:00 PM and then the cabin was quiet. There was ample storage for our clothing and items, but the walking space around the bed was rather tight. There was a refrigerator (mini bar) but it barely kept anything chilled, let alone cold. There is only one outlet to use by the desk, which could double as a vanity. The bed, which was outfitted as a queen for us, was one of the hardest beds I’ve ever slept on. The balcony had two chairs and a small table on it. That is all would fit on there. The bathroom area is segregated into 3 sections, the toilet in one section, the sink in the middle and the shower in the other section. I’m a bigger woman and the shower section was fine, but the toilet section was a tight squeeze.

The cabin was plain and felt tired. The room steward was, of course very attentive and personable. The layout seemed to be less organized with less storage space than other ships we have been on.

Cabin 9030
Very good sized wash room and balcony. The room itself was big enough for me, my fiancé and our daughter but i think it would be a little tight if we had another child staying in the room.

Cabin 9522
The balcony with connecting room to our other family members was lovely. The bathroom is well designed but struggles with mold and mildew. Steward was very friendly but asked repeatedly about the same needed follow up with ice, clean towels. It seemed like the cramped halls were always full of vacuums and laundry carts. I don't seem to remember it like that on other cruises. Just enough closest space and walking around room. Decor is very dated. Pictures so faded you can't make out the images. WIFI is very expensive. The ports themselves did not disappoint and I will remember it always which is what saves this from being poor overall, but the NCL cruise line was a real let-down.

Standard for a balcony room, although the balcony railing was rusty, it also seemed smaller than other cruises.

Cabin 9030
The cabin was a little cramped for 3, but the bathroom was bigger than the bathroom in our hotel in London. The balcony was very much worth the $$. It was kept very clean, Our steward was very attentive and sweet. This cabin was close enough to the elevator but not the least bit noisy. Floors 7 and 12 were where we spent the most time, so the 9th floor was perfect.

A Fun Time cruiseenthusiastic2
Our cabin was a balcony on deck 11. Having read other reviews and seeing YouTube video of the balcony rooms, I was very pleasantly surprised. We were satisfied with its amenities...we found there to be ample space for clothing and storage (shelves and drawers). They one draw back is that there is only one electrical outlet on a small desk. One review suggested a power cord...we had one but never used it.

Clean, reasonable size and in a good location. It was close to Windows and the Raffles buffet. It was quiet too. The shower drain was a bit slow but the maintanence man showed up and fixed it.

Cabin was fine for the canary Cruise I would recomend the other side of the ship as the port side didnt offer the best views but it wasn't a big deal to us. WC is tight but manageable. Euro, US and GB power outlets, take a 4 way strip adapter! best bit of advice I read on here!

Price war! Calland

The Cabin was very good, extremely comfortable bed. Storage was aplenty.The attendant kept it spotless daily, fresh towels were in constant supply. The shower was more than sufficent, Toilet and washroom were adequate. The balcony is a godsend and a must !

Cabin 10126

cabin was a nice size for one or two people, but while it's available for 3, it would be awfully crowded. The bathroom could not have been smaller and still be called a bathroom. it was hard to get in or out of, and I think anyone weighing more than about 200 lbs would have trouble getting in there! the shower was fine, roomy and had a sliding door which was very nice!!! didn't get the floor all wet like with a plastic curtain! other than that, the room was very nice! There were several channels on the tv but so many were in foreign languages that the options were limited. Lots of sports and a couple of news channels, and 1 or 2 movie channels.
The weather was perfect except for one day when it was windy and cold! other than that, in the 60s and very nice! a sweatshirt/or light jacket would be perfect.

Cabin 9160

Our major disappointment was the up-grade of our balcony stateroom. Expedia agent had mentioned an up-grade. We were looking forward to a large room/suite at the back of the ship. We got a tiny room, tiny shower, no tub. There were 3 of us. When the sofa bed is pulled out, there is no room to turn around.

Cabin 9502
Only so-so The Scar

Nice room. Small but efficient and worked for all our needs. It is forward on the port side. It is right up over the jets used to dock the ship so there is a lot of noise when docking or pulling away from the dock. We had a serious noise problem with the adjoining room. If they had there balcony door open the door adjoining the two rooms made a very loud wind noise, like having the car window open on the highway. A supervisor came and the only solution was to tape the door seams with bright red tape. It looked crappy but it worked and we were able to sleep. The balcony is small but a good place to sit with a coffee and watch as the ship leaves the ports. Cabin steward was very good.

Cabin 9510
Cabin 9510 was at the front of the ship and situated in a quiet corridor near the elevators. Only small criticism was the narrow balcony which just, and only just, managed to accommodate two chairs and a small table. Otherwise, an excellent cabin

Cabin 9500
Cabin 9500 Full forward on port side, deck 9. Next door to a hotel supply closet. Some noise in the evening and early morning. Not a problem for us, but would be for late sleepers. No foot traffic, so quiet in that regard. Balcony right beneath the bridge extension. Would not book this cabin again, but wouldn't refuse it if it were the only thing available. Bridge above so it's quiet, cabins below, so that's quiet.

Cabin 9026
The walls were a little thin and we could hear our roommates loud TV at different times during the day and the coughing from their cabin. This was on the side of the cabin with the connecting door to their room so that's why I think it was louder. We didn't hear our neighbors on the other side. The cabin was in pristine order and everything worked as it should have.

Cabin 9530
Cabin 9530 (BE category, with queen bed) - quiet, close to the elevators. First cabin in the category on the port side. Deck nine is relatively quiet since there are no activities on the deck or above or below. Good choice.

Our stateroom, 9530, was forward on the port side of the ship. It was the first BE stateroom after the BD staterooms. We loved the location. It was very near the elevators, but not too close. It had much less wiggle than the aft rooms would have had. Also, deck 9 is very quiet - no restaurants or activities on this deck or the one above or below. Something we would not have known to consider, but which is really important if you are a light sleeper. Our room was "cozy," but we had plenty of room for our stuff, and we never felt cramped. Since this was a first cruise, I didn't know what clothing would be appropriate, so I totally over-packed - two 28" suitcases, a 26", as well as two camera bags and a laptop bag. I had packed wire hangers and the closet had 15 wooden ones installed. There were plenty for our clothes. (Yay, Cruise Critic members for that suggestion!) Inside the closet, there were cubby holes for clothes as well as a top shelf and a small safe for valuables. There was a small set of drawers under the TV as well. MORE than enough room for everything we had with us! (I could have packed more, but a. I didn't need half of what I did pack and, b. my husband would have killed me!) After unpacking, I put the 26" inside a 28" and put both 28" suitcases under the bed, where they fit perfectly. The bed was comfortable, and the couch and desk and chair were very useful. We LOVED our balcony! It was a peaceful retreat from the hustle & bustle, and we loved waking up and photographing sunrise in our pjs. It was a great spot to look at the stars, also. Opening the drapes and watching the ocean sail by was very soothing and a great way to unwind! The bathroom was "cute." The toilet and shower are each behind sliding glass doors with a sink area in the middle. Again, cozy, but enough room to move comfortably. The only negative is the hair dryer. It is one of the Elisseo dryers which you find in most European hotels. They blow air, but if you have curly hair like mine and want to straighten any part of it (like my bangs), resign yourself to a week of bad hair. I had asked on many boards before we sailed about using my 1850 watt dryer, and I was told it would blow the circuits. I left it home, but I did bring my flattening iron. I was never brave enough to plug it in, though! The room only has a few outlets, and all except for one are 220. The one that is 110 clearly says "Not for Hair Dryers." My husband uses a CPAP, so, again, thanks to previous travelers posting, we knew to bring along an extension cord. It worked perfectly.

9188: just below kids program and just above theatre. Noise wasn't too bad unless you go to bed early. 9819: Above theatre and lots of shaking during evening shows. Too small for 4 people!

Cabin 9006
9006 was forward and quiet. No noise from adjoining cabins or cabins above or below. The motion up front was not a problem. There was plenty of room for 4 pieces of luggage under the bed and we were able to stow all our belongings in the space provided. I found this a nice spot for getting around the ship as it was a few flights up for the pool an a few flights down for the atrium and dining. We were very happy with our choice of cabin and thought it was a good value.

Cabin 9500
We enjoyed our cabin immensely, and the service of our stewards was outstanding!!  I think the cabin was a bit smaller than our prior NCL cruises on the larger ships, but adequate for our needs, incl. a small child.  Our location was the first port side balcony, and being at the end of the hallway made for a quiet area.  With two beds together, we had plenty of room for our little one to sleep in the middle, negating the need to open the sofa other than the first night.  We requested the "egg crate" padding, and it was very comfortable.  Everything was in great working condition in our cabin, though we were not crazy about the safe on floor in the closet, due to my wife's double knee replacement.

Cabin 9680
Bathroom: Ample room in the shower which had a sliding door. Also there was a sliding door on the toilet side. When one walks in the bathroom to the right was a shower, to the left the toilet and in the middle was the sink and shelves for toiletries. Hair dryer was above the sink, on the wall. Closet: Shelves and plenty room for clothing. Shelves were in the corner. Safe placed on a shelf on the floor. We stored the suitcases under the bed because we wanted the floor space of the closet for shoes and laundry to be done. 3 bags fir under the bed. Room had a couch which I believe could be made into an additional bed. Coffee table in front of sofa as well as desk and mirror above desk. By the desk there is 1- 220V and 1-110 volt plugs. "Wall unit" adjacent to closet area but inside room, had 3 shelves ( one was for the TV) as well as drawers. Coffee maker is in the room ( on one of the shelves) with a variety of coffee and teas. Two plugs available there, one being for the coffee pot... One night table...1 shelf and one drawer ( very small drawer ) Balcony fit two chairs ( NOT RECLINING CHAIRS )and 1 small coffee table ( about 1 square foot surface space for the coffee table)

Cabin 9536
Overall a bigger room than I expected. Ample closet space and shelves. Balcony was on the small side, but consistent with what is on that ship. Location is really nice, right next to the stairs. Not too noisy. Overall a great cabin, if we sailed this ship again I wouldn't mind getting the same room.

Balcony was good; however, one day we came back and there were cigarette butts on our balcony and neither of us smoke! Stateroom was on deck 9 and big theatre was on 7 and 8. Room was very noisy at night. Also, there seemed to be a band and activities on Deck 10 late in the evening and they were extremely noisy.
