Nice cabin but found it smaller than other cruise lines. Very comfortable bed and well thought out cabin, plenty of hanging space in the wardrobe and sufficient drawer and shelf space. TV system needs upgrading, unable to access on board account.

Cabin 9035
Our room was ready quick and it was very nice. I'd say better than an Carnival ship - maybe on par with a Carnival Spa room. We just had a regular Balcony room (#9035). The bathroom/shower is SO much bigger than Carnival or Princess. The balcony has cigarette butts on the floor but that lack of attention to service/detail was on par with the rest of the ship. My wife was using the hair dryer, sitting where the make-up station is and our phone rang saying there was a fire alarm in our room. We had to explain that my wife was blow drying her hair. Turns out the heat sensor is right above where the hair dryers are. Dumb. Our room steward was disinterested and even rude at times when we asked for information. We had the soap dispenser fall off the wall one day. We called to have it fixed - which they did in a couple hours...but for the rest of the day until the next day they left the repaired dispenser empty, so no soap or shampoo.

Do not accept this cabin as it has plumbing issues. The line is clogged and had to be taken apart in the hallway four times. Cabin and balcony are normal sized. Television very limited channels.

Uninspired ship Tandoorii
Forward Balcony. So why cant they put in a few more shelves and cabinets? Other lines do and it would be so easy. Shower stall one of the most spacious we've seen. Worst bed ever! Best pillow ever! See, something for everyone to praise and complain about:)

Cabin 10628
We had booked GTY Inside and were assigned this cabin the day before departure. Location is directly off main hallway within 20 feet of elevators. Initially we thought this location would be noisy however we were pleasantly surprised. This room was very quiet. We were never bothered not even on New Years Eve. Nice sized balcony with 2 chairs and small end table. Bed was a little hard--learned from other reviews to ask for a foam mattress topper which was promptly put on by our great room steward Jose. Bathroom is split meaning toilet area is behind separate door. This was a great convenience. Shower was spacious with plenty of hot water and large enough for two. TV selection was minimal but that is not why we were on the cruise. Storage was ample, enough hanging space and shelves for all of our things.

Uncomfortable bed and seating. Inadequate lighting in bathroom and vanity area. Attendant was excellent. There was no conditioner or lotion or bar soap in the bathroom. Everything worked OK. There was only one 110 V outlet.

Cabin 10572
The cabin was big (bigger than the other balcony rooms I've been in) and it was nicely maintained and cleaned daily. Our cabin steward was very friendly and kind, and did a wonderful job cleaning the room and the origami towels were very cute!

Small balcony cabin with little storage. We left much of our clothing in suitcases and tucked them under the bed. Our room steward was polite, but distant and we did not ask much of him.

Cabin 9700

It was wonderful and situated perfectly on the port side aft of the ship, same floor as the internet cafe and we were close to the stairs/elevator. The balcony was so wonderful for happy hours and dolphin spottings.
Everything was in good repair. My traveling friend requested an 'egg crate' for her bed which helped her.

Cabin 1076

The balcony was a little more cramped than most. The bed arrangement did not allow you to walk past the beds to the balcony when the second bed was made up for a third person. The table was in an awkward position by the balcony door.

Cabin 9062

Small, cramped. Not enough room for three people. One will be living out of a suitcase under the bed for two weeks, and when the third bed is put down, there is absolutely no space to move around.

Cabin 9508
Wonderful madveninc
We were in room 9508, an forward balcony on the NCL Star. There were just two of us in the room. We had plenty of storage space. The bathroom was a little tight, but not unexpected. The staff was accommodating to remove anything we didn't need in the room (coffee pot, mini-bar items). Only one electrical outlet to plug into, however (we came prepared with an adapter to expand). We would have like more more UNDER the bed to store our larger suitcase. Small suitcase fit ok, but large one would not. Noise from outside or the neighbor cabins was not an issue. We met our neighbors next door and across the hall and had no issues. The balcony was large enough to enjoy. Signage on the ship was adequate to find our way as well. No complaints, we already have book our next two cruises, on NCL of course :) :)

Cabin 9710

9710- nice bathroom. roomy for 2 people but a 3rd person, it may become cramped. it was great for just the 2 of us. There was some outside noise of people carrying on in the halls late at night. but nothing major and it was just the people, not the location of the cabin itself.

Cabin 9032
Balcony Stateroom 9032- Great balcony on deck 9 with a quiet location. We loved being at the front of the ship away from the hustle and bustle of the public areas. Closet space worked for us as well as the bathroom space and our Steward Joel, couldn't have been better. We had great views all throughout our cruise. Loved having the clothes line in the shower to hang up wet bathing suits and excursion gear. Tip: bring clothes pins, as things dried a lot fast not hanging directly on the line. Best advice: Bring additional extension cord or multi-plugs to utilize the vanity area outside the bathroom for doing hair and make-up without trying up the bathroom.

Cabin 9566
Don't pick cabin 9566, which has incredible creaking when the ship goes through waves. But the ocean view cabin category is decent sized with a nice bathroom. Only one chair on the balcony though ...

Cabin -- We had a balcony cabin on deck 9. The cabin was adequate in space (for a cruise ship). It included a small 'desk', 2 twin beds pushed together to make a king (note-the space between the beds can get uncomfortable if you like to sleep close), a small dresser area with three drawers, a numerical combination safe, and a closet with 4 shelves. The bathroom had a walk-in shower with glass door. The toilet was in a separate area with a sliding door. Unfortunately, if you are a person of 'substance' navigating the narrow opening into the toilet can be tricky (especially during nighttime bathroom visits). We heard, and a couple we were traveling with, had some difficulties with this narrow space. Also important to note is that the bathroom does not have any bar soap. There is liquid soap available (the shower has both a liquid shampoo and body wash dispenser) but if you like bar soap, you better bring some. There were no other bathroom amenities available. Our room steward was adequate; he had limited personality (never spoke with us when he saw us unless we initiated it) and had days when he forgot things (ie. One day there was only 1 towel, one day no ice, etc.)

While smaller than cabins on other ships, it was well designed with plenty of storage space and hangers. It was clean and the cabin stewart,Sharek, was excellent.

Cabin 9012
Perfectly nice stateroom, on the small side but manageable for three people. My only complaint would be the sleeper sofa bed, which was three quarters hard as a rock, and the bottom quarter was squishy. The balcony is slightly enclosed due to being so far forward, but it wasn't a problem for us.

Cabin 9516
Quiet because it as so far forward (and a hike from the elevator), enclosed balcony (at the expense of the view), smoky when smokers are next door, broken closet that they attempted to fix and didn't successfully. Railing was peeling and the glass was missing parts of brackets. TV was maybe 13" and we couldn't hear announcements in the cabin unless we had the TV on channel 2. Bathroom was larger than expected and one of the few bright spots.

Cabin 9532
The location of our room, 9532, was just fine. This room was one of the smallest I have ever had on our 12 cruises, even though it is only the second cruise we have had a balcony cavin. There was also less storage space than I am used to on RCCL or Carnival. But we loved having a balcony. If you go on this ship, I recommend a balcony room, as there are few pleasant common seating areas. We really enjoyed being able to sit outside. Greatest fun was waking up at 6:15 as we entered San Francisco. I went out on the balcony just as we passed under the Golden Gate Bridge!

Cabin 9012
Great storage, bathrooms not as small as expected. Space under the beds was enough for our largest suitcases. Can sunbath on balcony. Odd RV-style latrine smells when the balcony door is left open (pulls air from the rest of the ship somewhere).

Adequate closet.  Toilet/sink/shower were quite adequate...unless you weigh over 300 lbs. then you might have some trouble.  Very comfortable bed.  Great place to relax with a nice balcony.
