Our balcony cabin seemed a bit smaller than other cruise lines, but the balcony itself was large enough for 2 chairs, 2 chaises and a small table (of course, we paid for the extra space). The bed was comfortable and we had just enough closet/drawer space to hold our stuff. The bathroom was clean and there was just enough room to hold our toiletries. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin (9502) was wonderful. We loved being at the front of the ship (very little traffic and far from noisy elevators). We got to watch a pod of dolphins playing just beneath the ship's bow off the Na Pali Coast. Our room steward was there when we needed him, and out of our way otherwise. Read entire member review >>
Cabin #11014 is on the starboard (right) side of the ship. From the right side, you will see all ports coming in and going out.
Recommend a B6 cabin on deck 11 because the balcony is larger than most of the other balconies. Our cabin steward brought us 2 add'l chairs and we were able to fit 4 comfortably each evening for sail-away. Cabin #11012, 11014, 11024 & 11026 as well as the same cabins on the port side have the larger balconies. I got an extra small table from the pool and put it on the deck to hold extra drinks and snacks.
Very quiet floor and on the same deck as the pool, hot tubs and buffet. The cabin has plenty of storage space with 4 drawers and shelving in the closet. Bring a power strip to charge phones, cameras, laptops etc. My husband has a c-pap and our cabin steward, Eston, brought an extension cord for his use. He was very attentive and the best at making towel buddies as we returned one day to find them playing cards on our bed! The bed was very comfortable and made into a small king. Good cabin value for the money on a 7 day cruise. Read entire member review >>
Bathroom storage space small for 2 people. Wasn't thrilled with metal cage shelves in closet, rather than shelves that other NCL ships have in closet. Cabins quiet, though. Read entire member review >>
Our room and balcony were beautiful, we had a breathtaking views of Hawaii's beautiful islands.
I strongly recommend booking a balcony room if you are taking this cruise because the views are so majestic, you don't want to miss out!! Read entire member review >>
Cabin was as expected, large bed, sofa bed. Plenty of storage for a couple who were travelling for 3 weeks. Suitcases and golf clubs stored under the bed with no trouble. Balcony had table and 2 chairs. Room was clean and well organised. Bathroom was adequate, again had enough storage. Shower was compact but more than enough room to wash easily.

Small. Bathroom is extremely small. Could only stand in shower, no bending or cleaning. No air circulation/vent in bathroom, which leads to a smelly cabin. Steward was excellent! Very limited storage. Great views. Lol Read entire member review >>

Guess cabin at 170 sq ft with large balcony. Read entire member review >>
Well appointed cabin with a large balcony. Cabin was narrow but functional. Balcony fit two lounge chairs, patio chairs, ottomans and tables. A bit crowded but nice to have options. Read entire member review >>
Cabin had plenty of storage space and very comfortable bed. Bathroom small with not much space to manoevure for someone on the larger side but was adequate for us with plenty of supplies such as shampoo, shower gel Etc. Towels and bed linen were changed on a daily basis and each evening when we returned to our cabin we were greeted by turned down bed and a lovely toweling animal figure created for us by our cabin steward, nice touch! Really appreciated having the largish balcony to relax and view each port as we arrived or departed. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was clean and there was plenty of storage. We had the mini bar cleared out so we could stock the fridge with water. There is a coffee maker in the stateroom. The balcony is huge, but cavernous and has a bad echo. Read entire member review >>
We were located all the way to the front on the Port side. For most of the trip we faced out toward the ocean. For the Friday afternoon ship tour of the Na Poli mountains, the view was amazing. It was so nice to sit on the balcony and enjoy the beautiful mountain and rainbow scenery. The balcony was also nice when I wanted to journal or read while she had the television on.
At 233 sq ft., the space was arranged in such a way that my room mate and I had enough access to drawers, closet and other storage and shelving.
Bringing magnets along was helpful for keeping important notes and papers posted on the metal walls.
I easily stored two empty suitcases out of the way under the bed. My roommate kept her luggage open on the sofa. That worked out okay because every day included an excursion and so we didn't spend a lot of time in the room.
The bathroom was spacious enough, although the shower felt pretty small. It still worked well enough with the flexible shower nozzle. There was a clothes line hung in the shower that helped with drying swimsuits and hand washables.
Because the blow dryer was attached to the dressing table on my roommate's side of the room I hardly ever had access to the blow dryer. It would have been better to have the blow dryer either be portable or be located in the bathroom for easier access by both cabin mates.
I took a power adapter along so that I could easily charge two electronics over night. I'm glad that I was able to keep my phone charged because I used it daily to send texts and post pictures on social media. I didn't use the phone on the ship because their Internet packages are prices. I did use it daily when on land. I almost always had access to free wireless Internet at all the ports, so I was able to communicate without using much cellular data.
Henry, our cabin steward, was kind, friendly, and helpful. This was my first time cruising in a Large Balcony stateroom and I liked it a lot. Read entire member review >>
Close enough to forward elevators but not so close to be busy. Quiet area, did not here engines or any other noise except when side thrusters used. King size bed takes quite a bit of room, but didn't need much room anyway as large veranda was used for sitting if not sleeping or out and about. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was a marvelous use of limited space. It was clean, neat, and well appointed with wood accents and lovely island art. Because it's on a ship, my wife and I had to do the "cabin dance" on occasion. This led to some much needed intimacy. The balcony is a must! the views from the balcony are incomparable and it enhanced a feeling of space and tranquility. Sailing into Hilo Bay in the early morning, I was sitting on the balcony watching a mother and calf humpback breach and play as the sun came up. Read entire member review >>
Our Disney cabins were exceptional as we "splurged" on a family vacation and a comparison would be unjustified. However, both my wife and I felt we should have opted for a basic suite rather than go with the oversized balcony. Cabin had a hand shower nozzel but shower was small and a larger person would have a rough time (don't drop a soap bar!). Cabin stewards on both cruise lines were exceptional; definitely a highlight on the Pride compared to other ship personnel. Thank heaven we had storage underneath the bed on the Pride; NO place else to put two suitcases in the room. Pride bed mattress was ok. Read entire member review >>
Our forward starboard cabin was small, as expected, but very efficiently designed for storage. We had no trouble putting all of our clothing and small items away. The only really tight space is that at the foot of the bed; passage for one person at a time. The sofa and table were functional. There were two separate reading lights; very important. The fridge-mini bar left a little bit of space for my water bottle and fruit. The large balcony made the room seem bigger; I sat on it every day. The bathroom was quite functional and roomy, given the size constraints. Linens and towels were quite satisfactory; there were two waffle-cotton robes in the closet and pool towels every day.

Waste of space for the large balcony, there is still only 2 chairs and a table, would have been nice to have a chaise lounge or 2, the balcony was completely covered and the cabin was far forward, unfortunately being so far forward the seas were quite rough 2 of the 7 days and we really felt the ship slamming down on the waves. The cabin was on the small side, closet was too small to hang both guests clothes, however there was a few drawers and shelves in the closet for more storage. The ships tv is poor, only 2 channels to watch other than reruns of the previous days activities. Read entire member review >>
Cabin OK, it has a connecting door to 12506. Refrigerator shelves to close to store small water bottles. Nice size balcony but only had low sun loungers, it was large enough for 2 chairs as well. Read entire member review >>
Room was a bit small compared to other cruise lines I've been on, but the balcony was huge! There were both lounge chairs and regular chairs and room to spare. Could see into the wing of the bridge from the balcony, which was neat. Although the room was small, we did have plenty of space for all our stuff. We didn't really sit on the couch and instead piled stuff on it. Typical stateroom amenities--safe, hair dryer, glasses and ice bucket, robes. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 9028 on the Starboard side is adorable: comfy king bed with storage underneath for luggage, end tables, reading lights, a love seat/extra bed, coffee table, flat screen TV, a table (with a pull-out blow dryer) next to the beverage-stocked frig (NO freezer section for ice packs), coffee maker and mugs, ice bucket and glasses, a safe, and plenty of closet/drawer/shelf space. Mirrors are everywhere to give the illusion that it is roomy, and the cabin has its own AC/Heat Control. (Bring a power strip for electronics.) The bathroom is petite, but functional with shelves behind the right mirror, a long shelf under the sink, hand soap, and a holder with glasses. (NO electrical outlet.) Inside the shower stall is a pull-out clothesline, dispensers for shampoo and shower gel, and three shelves for personal items. The cabin's sliding-glass door leads to a large balcony with plenty of space for two chaise lounges, two chairs and a small table. Cabin 9028 has an advantage because it is at the end of a row of cabins with large balconies in the Aft section, with neighbors only on one side with a partition and a solid steel wall opposite.

11024 ~ Large balcony ~ Absolutely loved the space of the balcony. The cabin certainly wasn't the largest but it worked for two people. I wouldn't recommend anymore than 2. Toilet area is tiny and I hate the shower curtain but perhaps that will change with the renovation. We actually showered in the gym a couple times because the showers there are so nice. We've cruised before and somewhat have a routine. It was located on the pool deck and we loved the convenience of that and the proximity of the Aloha Cafe. We booked it purposely to be on the pool deck. We didn't experience any noise or issues with our cabin. Good size balcony, good location !! Read entire member review >>
Our cabin 11514 was great. No noise, wonderful room steward. Great huge deck. If I had to do it again, I would choose a little more mid than forward just to save more walking. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 11026: I prefer the balcony on my large balcony category stateroom on POA to the one in the same category on the Oasis of The Seas. There the balcony was a big disappointment. It felt claustrophobic. This one on POA was really large, equipped with two loungers, 2 chairs and a table. The floors were wood not that bilious green AstroTurf. And there were railings so you could see the ocean properly as opposed to that Plexiglas stuff.
I was also pleasantly surprised by the stateroom itself. I was expecting something very garish-looking, but it was actually very pretty and cheerful. I think they had redone the cabin recently because bedding, drapes et al looked very new. Read entire member review >>

8012 forward port side. Huge balcony, room and balcony is slightly larger than other balcony rooms on rest of ship, Small bathroom, but functional, air conditioning worked well, more than enough outlets for charging stuff. Daughter said the TV worked just fine (kids!) Bed was comfortable, had two twin beds; my sis had three in her room with two twins and the couch that rolled out into a bed.
Fantastic Views! Great maid service. Read entire member review >>
Our fore, starboard balcony cabin afforded a larger balcony with more room than we ever could have used. It was more enclosed within the ships hull which meant that anything spoken, or doors slammed three cabins away echoed and seem as if they were right next to our stateroom.
