Balcony Cabins

With room for up to three guests, these staterooms have two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed and a pull out sofa to accommodate one more. Along with a sitting area, floor-to-ceiling glass doors and a private balcony with an amazing view.

Cabin 9208
Our cabin on the 9th deck Starboard was considerably larger than others in the same category, as it was intended for physically impaired persons so we benefited with extra space. I booked a balcony X for a considerable fare reduction. and was not allocated a cabin until embarkation. It was very comfortable, a King size bed with lovely soft white linen, very nice pillows and a mattress topper. We slept incredibly well! There were total blackout curtains, conducive to good sleep! Beyond, a small but functional balcony with 2 chairs and small table. Two nice armchairs, a flatscreen television, vanity table and chair. Great hairdryer, coffee/tea maker, Jug of water and ice bucket replenished twice daily. Plenty of cupboard space, even for a much longer cruise. A large bathroom with fresh towels changed twice daily if needed. An animal towel created every night and left on our bed.The room was serviced twice daily.

Norwegian Star...Wonderful value! thomasjacobus@aol.com
Very comfortable, nice balcony with two chairs and table, good enough to sleep, relax and rest in. We stayed in port on all days so didn't need much more.

Terrible room steward. Didn't remove dirty dishes, didn't put away our luggage after they were emptied, didn't give us a towel animal until the 3rd day, had to continually ask for new towels, worst experience on any cruise ship.

Great Ship tampawalt
The cabin was in the front of the ship and sadly felt the motion of this ship. it was a nice cabin and was well designed. the only negative was the water pressure in the shower could have been better and there were only 3 or channeled on the TV. No one goes on cruise to watch TV but at night I like to watch TV to unwind.

Never Again Rachel454
Bathroom flooded every time we took showers, Not wet FLOODED. 2 to 3 inches of water. We went to the steward b/c it was getting into the room. He said its ok, no big deal. Maybe not to him but we ended up cleaning it ourselves every day just to keep it out of the room. We asked for a mop to help with the water but he wouldn't give us one, had to use towels. Nice vacation huh? Cleaning the bathroom everyday. I wish I could upload my pictures of it so you can see for yourself.

Cabin 8012
Cabin was nice but typical. This was our first time with a balcony and we were pretty excited about it. Ours happened to be Starboard, so the area to look out of was smaller. Our cabin was clean and our steward was very good. I must say he was the only person on the ship that impressed me service-wise.

Cabin 9072
The cabin was nice but there were three of us and it really was too small for three people. It would be fine for two. I must say that the bathroom layout is one of the best I have seen for a balcony cabin on a cruise ship

Cabin 10712
Cabin satisfied our needs perfectly. We had three adults for part of the cruise and we managed well. The room was quiet and the bed was comfortable, including the sofa bed. Location was perfect since it was close to elevators and to the dining and entertainment.

Cabin 9162
We were mid ships with easy access to an elevator and a few doors from the Internet Café which had convenient stairs down to decks 8 and 7 where most of the activities, information desk, shore activities desk, etc. and several of the restaurants were located. Plenty of room for all your stuff; even overpackers like ourselves. Very comfortable bed.

Cabin 9728
This is an aft balcony cabin on port side. It is almost as far from elevators and that noise as is possible. Being aft, it is closer to dining areas and moving forward to common areas. If you want to be close to the casino, this is not where you want to be. Our room steward was excellent. Almost invisible except for great smiles and welcoming comments whenever we would see him in the hallway. We never saw him in our cabin, but found his towel creations of cats, dogs, and mice on our bed nightly. The magic of cruise ships stewards to service your room but never be seen. Almost like elves.

Cabin 9724-I think
NCL is not for us! msboschman

Room was tired and old. The entire ship needs to be scrapped-NOT refurbished!

Cabin 10666

When we arrived on the ship in Copenhagen we were shocked to experience a ship in need of repair. The carpets were stained, dirty, and smelled of either urine or a heavy cleaning solution. There was what looked like dried blood on our balcony, mold in our bathroom, and our bedding was stained. Mind you, we booked one of the nicer, more expensive, staterooms. Also we ordered a queen-size bed in our room. What we got were two twin beds pushed together with a giant gap in the center. I’m sure it’s obvious that this causes problems on a honeymoon vacation. If you are planning to book a NCL cruise, I suggest you bring your own air mattress as the beds there were not only hard, they were lumpy and outrageously uncomfortable. Soldiers in war are more comfortable in their cots than a we were in the NCL bed.

The room is very quiet and well located. The ship is older, but in generally good condition. The closet has a light, which is a nice feature. You might want to consider bringing your own shampoo and conditioner if you are picky.

Families should note that the balcony rooms on the NCL star are a bit tight for 3 people and if possible should consider booking a more expensive cabin. If you have children who nap, please carefully check the deck plan prior to selecting a room since many of the mini suites are not above and below staterooms.

Cabin 9712

My cabin was spacious with plenty of storage, and my steward Jamie was most attentive. Even though he had a number of other cabins to service, I always felt that I was of the utmost importance. The ice bucket was never empty! The balcony was neat (smallish) but wasn't overlooked and I was lucky that I didn't have smokers anywhere around me!
