Cabin 8058
Oct 2016
Cabin was'bijou'....that is, small but beautifully formed. Everything was there, including bathrobes (though they were very small). There was a safe using four number pin of personal choice, a TV with ship channel plus Sky News and Sky Sport and English film channel. There was sockets for Uk plugs as well as European plugs. There was a little settee which was useful and although we never used the contents of the mini bar, it was useful to have the fridge and a bucket of ice was provided twice daily which was great. There was also a coffee maker, again we didn't use. It would have been better just to have a kettle for either tea or coffee. We never used room service. The steward was great, very conscientious. We were pleased we had upgraded to a balcony although it was the type that was slightly enclosed rather than just partitioned from next door.

The cabin was on the small side, but I went with a friend and we were able to make it work just fine. There was plenty of closet and storage space for two women which was a concern of mine. The bathroom was smaller than most, but certainly do-able. Having the balcony made it much roomier!

Hold on to your wallet! By: Bill Jones
Very efficient use of a small space. Everything worked as it should. Luggage could be stored under the bed. Bedding was ok. Hairdryer included. TV was minimal.

Like any other balcony cabin, really. We slept 3 (my wife and I and our eldest granddaughter). The couch/pull-out bed was too big to pull all the way out and still have access to the balcony, so our room steward kept it one section short, and our grand slept diagonally. That way we could use the balcony at night, which I did every night. Our steward was kinda borderline passive-aggressive about our 'do not disturb' wheel, like he was offended the 2 times we didn't need service. But he was good with other cabins in our party, so maybe it was us being sensitive...

Most cruise cabins are snug but this one seemed a bit cozier than the last balcony cabin I had on NCL. Please keep in mind that there is only one electrical outlet; so you may want to bring a power strip and/or extension cord with you.

Loved it! By: TTBrad
The cabin was average - bathroom had a good size stand up shower with room to move around unlike other balcony showers I've had! Lots of storage and closet space. Balcony was nice, especially going in and out of ports like Stockholm.

Excellent Honeymoon By: jonesnj
See the review up above for more. The cabin was everything we wanted and more and having the balcony made the trip that much better. I don't know if we will ever be able to take another cruise without having a balcony room.

Cabin was just fine for cold weather in the North Sea and North Atlantic. Other than having an enclosed balcony, it was a normal balcony cabin.On deck 8 right at the forward stairwell.

Cabin 8058
May 2013
My room, which was a balcony room, was quite large and roomy and very inviting. My bed was extremely uncomfortable and felt like I was laying on metal rods. I ended up sleeping sitting up for 8 nights. My friends slept well so it may just be what you're used to. It was a quiet location and near the stairs and elevator. I rarely heard noise from outside the cabin. There was plenty of room to hang clothing and store bags. The shower was really good and there was a really good hairdryer. The balcony was pretty nasty looking. I wouldn't walk out on it barefoot. It was rusty looking and had flecks of paint everywhere. It was like really rough beat up flooring of some sort. I took pictures of it because it was so nasty looking. But as long as I wore shoes and sat on a towel I was still able to enjoy time on the balcony.

Cabin 8030
Dec 2011
Cabin 8030- balcony. Also cabin 8025 inside. The bathroom in the balcony has a divider between toilet and sink area. There is no divider in the inside cabins. This may seem a plus but makes the bathroom very tight. Much roomier without the divider. Could hear rhythmic music late at night but with balcony door open, not an issue. When we first got on the A/C kept the room nice and cool. Towards the end it was warm--even when the A/C was turned up all the way.

Never Again! By: thepplking
Stateroom: Very hard beds. We had to request extra padding for the beds two times so we could sleep. Clean, but we did find a pair of black panties under the bed on day five that did not belong to either of us. Also, if you select a cabin with a balcony, be careful where it is located on the ship. The balconies near the front of the ship where we were located had a more confined view than the others located amidships. Smoking was our number one complaint. Every time we returned to our stateroom it reeked of smoke and it was not from the cabin steward. We had smokers in the rooms on both sides of our cabin and it was nasty. We could not believe that NCL still allows smoking inside the staterooms! Especially when they make a point of telling you during the first lifeboat drill that FIRE is the NUMBER ONE Danger aboard a ship! DUH!

Cabin 8560
May 2011
room was overall a good one. the bed which is 2 twins pushed together, kept coming apart sometimes. little cabinet space. this is a corner room so we only had one other cabin to our right. hallway did get a little noisy sometimes and you could even hear people running above use but at night it was quiet. the balcony is very small but it's the shielded kind so we had no noise, wind or sun hitting it. we quite enjoyed it by sitting on the 2 chairs and reading. pillows are European style which is wonderful :)

Our cabin was perfect for us. We had a balcony and had no issues at all. Tv worked fine, bathroom was good too. It was tiny but they all are but our bathroom had a seperate are for the actual toilet which was pretty cool. Location was mid ship on the 10th floor and quiet. Elevators were a little crowded but the steps are easy enough.

The balcony suite we had was typical of a cruise suite. Other than smelling smoke from the people next door when on the balcony, there were not complaints about the room itself.

Nice balcony, decent sized room for three people, comfortable beds (even the sofa bed), tiny bathroom. Above the promenade and near the theater, so slightly loud when shows would get out.

Cabin 8032

Star review By: 1980dory
8032 Rather small for a balcony cabin. Very nicely decorated. Thermostat worthless except for setting either heat or A/C. Adjustment not possible. Very, very comfortable bed! I sure wouldn't want to put more than two people in this cabin though! This cabin has the smallest TV I have ever seen on a cruise. Too much furniture. Extra chair and table make it all but impossible to use the settee. Settee makes a great nightstand for one who sleeps on the left side of the bed though. Balcony is just fine for only two people.

Great Cruise - Feb.14-21/09 By: thunder_lin
Cabin was located near the forward elevators. Sometimes in the evening we could hear the music from the Carosel Lounge wharfing up the stairway but it didn't bother us. I liked the location so close to the elevators and stairs. Lots of storage space within the cabin. There seemed to be a lot of cubbyholes to store stuff. We had 3 people in a cabin and had no problems storing all of our stuff.
