Family Balcony Cabins

34 Reviews
These staterooms are perfect if you want to bring the kids along. They sleep up to four guests and include a sitting area, two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed and a pull out sofa to accommodate two more. Not to mention the floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open to a private balcony for the whole family to enjoy.

Southbound Alaska By: iamqueenbecca@hotmail.com
The pull out bed was very hard. Good for my sister and I who are 5'5", but anyone taller wouldn't fit. Lots of storage space was really nice. The shower is tiny!

Good located, closet door did not close properly, during rougher sea door opened in between and bang-closed after. Shower has only curtain, whole bathroom pretty small. Cabin itself good size for two as it has an extra pullout-sofa. With 4 persons not really spacey. No table on balcony just 2 chairs and small stool. TV reception on ships own channels very bad.

The cabin was very functional and we were upgraded by Norwegian to the family balcony which seemed to be just a little bigger than the typical balcony.

The Hammonds in Alaska By: Ashleyhammond
SMALL! Bed was comfortable, but far too little space for clothing and unpacking. Fortunately we spent very little time in the room as it was purely for sleeping. To quote my mother who was on the ship with us.... "You couldnt swing a cat in here" Our room was kept very clean and tidy by the steward (Sam) who was delightful.

Never Thought I'd Be A Cruser! By: bjonel@shaw.ca
Our room had more than enough room for two. We appreciated the closet, and the multiple drawer space.. Shelving also great. I particularly appreciated a desk.

It was a wonderful trip! By: Princess7878
Everything was very well maintained in our cabin and throughout the ship. We enjoyed having a balcony, but really didn't use it much.

Very comfortable for two. It would be very crowded with four.

The Sun Shines in Alaska By: grapehound
Nicely laid out room with lots of storage. Big balcony with lots of privacy. No noise from adjacent cabins. Great location for Seven Seas or restaurants/bars on 11 and 12.

Wonderful time on the Sun! By: TravelLove69
We had a "family balcony" cabin. I think these are the same size as normal balcony cabins, but have a fold out sofa that sleeps two more. The cabin seemed similar in size to balcony cabins on Princess and Carnival (some people say they are larger). There was plenty of room and the balcony was a decent size. Plenty of storage space too (bring some extra hangers). Restroom seems smaller and the shower is tight. Cabin steward did an OK job, but we only got three towel animals on an 11 night cruise. Also, the mattress pad was stained and we asked him to replace it, which he did. Beds are quite comfortable.

Cabin was quite adequate for one person with too much storage space for one person. Drawback was that bed was too big for the room. I did not notice any noise but I live across from a hospital with a helopad so that probably has something to do with it. There is a line in the shower for drying clothes which came in handy when I was drying my underwear and socks at night.

Norwegian Sun Adventure By: sailorlady
Our stateroom (9262) was aft on Deck 9, with balcony. It was clean and well tended by the stewards. However, it was small and crowded. One twin bed stuck out in the passageway so that we had to walk sideways to get to the bathroom, closet, or door. There did not appear to be any way to reconfigure the room to prevent this. We loved the towel animals the steward left for us each day. Our cabin steward was very efficient and pleasant.

OUR CABIN WAS WITH A BALCONY AND ALBEIT THERE WAS A FEW MINOR MATTERS TO PUT RIGHT SUCH AS SOILED BEACH TOWELS AND DIRTY FINGER MARKS OVER THE MIRRORS AND DOORS THERE WAS LITTLE TO COMPLAIN ABOUT. THERE WAS ADIQUATE STORAGE WHICH IS SAYING SOMETHING AS MY WIFE TENDST " TO TAKE THE KITCHEN SINK WITH US ON HOLIDAY " ,AS WE SAY IN THE UK. THE VIEW WAS VERY GOOD INDEED AND THE BALCONY SAFE AND AS I SAY THE CABIN WAS VERY GOOD WITH NO NOISE AS VERY FEW CHILDREN WERE ON BOARD.

Our cabin was near the Stardust Lounge. It was almost impossible to go to sleep before 10:30 at night or while the entertainers were practicing. There was plenty of storage space and the bathroom was well equipped.

Close enough to aft elevators to be handy but not too close to be noisy. A little cramped between the foot of the bed and the wall. Good storage space. Quiet - no noise from adjoining cabins.

AVOID AT ALL COSTS: Aft cabins on the port side. They are over the sewage processing exhaust fan. A disgusting smell permeates this part of the ship, whether running on the promenade deck or sitting on your balcony. It ruined our trip
