These Oceanview Staterooms have two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed as well as two pull down beds. Because they are mid-ship, you'll have easy access to everything on board. Plus an incredible view from the big picture window.
The cabin was a bit larger than we normally get, so that was nice. Our stateroom attendant did an fantastic job keeping us supplied with towels, etc. The "view" from our window was obstructed by one of the lifeboats (or tender boats?) but we still were able to see the skyline which was nice.

We had an ocean view cabin which is small in comparison to Celebrity, Princess and Royal Caribbean cabins and they all seem to accommodate and extra 2 beds which fold down from the walls. As the cabins are narrow the only way to get into bed is bending forward at the waist as the wall beds do not allow you to stand straight. If you have a bad back this might be difficult. The bathroom is small but manageable but luckily we brought our own toiletries as there was very little given by NCL.
We never saw our cabin staff in the week we were on board and unlike most other cruises we have been on, they did not speak to you as you passed them but carried on working or talking to their colleague. We found this a little strange but it didn't affect the overall experience in any way. Read entire member review >>
Very nice as we had a mid-ship inside stateroom with a great ocean view. We had a king size bed which was very comfortable. Temperature was easy to control. Overall we were very happy with our accommodations. Read entire member review >>
Plenty of storage space.The queen bed was comfortable but access on each side was limited due to bunks on each side that were clipped up against wall,The cabin could be configured to 4 single beds,Shower cubicle was little on small size.There wasn't a bed head so we had to squash spare pillows down gap between the head of bed and window to stop our pillows falling off.We had an excellent cabin stewardess called Catherine who kept our amenities clean and well stocked.Unfortunately there was a sewage smell in the corridor most of the time which we reported to guest services Read entire member review >>
Cabin was well set up but cabin steward was very erratic. Some days no glasses...some days cabin not made up by noon. She was very sweet but might be better utilized in another area. Read entire member review >>
Good location on ship, being amidship but a little bit forward. Far enough away from stairs and elevators so no noise. Yet not too far to walk to either amidship or forward stairs/elevators. Read entire member review >>
The cabin is cramped with no where to sit except on the bed or one foot stool. There bunk beds attached to the side walls. I don't see how four people could stay in the room. If there are only two occupants ask the staff to split the bed so you'll have room to get around. Read entire member review >>
Room was decent size (of course bathroom tiny), bed comfy, plenty of storage. Good location to steps and elevators, Overhead light above bed was hanging down for last 3 days of trip (guess maid and steward did not notice), took 3 days to get tissues in room, and bathroom faucet leaked.

Our stateroom had a large window with drapes that were closed every time the cabin steward came into the room. The room was very small and we had to crawl over the bed because the upper bunk beds did not allow you to stand upright on the sides. There were only two of us in the room. I can't imagine having four people there with all the luggage. We barely had enough room. We put the luggage under the bed to get it out of the way. It would be nice to have a soft comfortable chair for reading or watching TV but of course that would be impossible in the small cabin. The bed was fairly comfortable though. Our cabin steward, Gerry, did a good job of keeping things cleaned. The safe in our room did not work and the door did not close without pulling it shut tightly. Read entire member review >>
Overall good, very roomy but window was very very dirty. The room is under a bar I think and a couple of times around 11pm you could hear noises but it didn't last too long. Read entire member review >>
the cabin was ok, small and efficient like most other cruise ships. It was in good condition, and we really didn't have too many complaints on it. We got the ocean view room, except the large window was very dirty (and oddly spotty like someone tried to put a film on it and had air bubbles in certain locations) so that was kind of irritating (I understand windows on the outside get dirty from salt, but the whole weird film which further obstructed any clear view was irritating). Plus, though we weren't on passenger walking deck, we saw people (I assume Crew) walk by on several occasions, so we left the curtains closed most of the time. Would probably save the money and get a lower level room next time. The room wasn't bad, it just wasn't worth it.
It was kept mostly clean, but we must have interrupted the lady who was making up the rooms on more than one occasion (though her supplies showed she'd moved on to other rooms). on 2 of the 6 nights we were on board (we preplanned to leave a night early), we came back after dinner to a room that had no bath-sized towels in the bathroom?!?!? one of those 2 times, we took apart the towel animal on the bed which contained one larger towel and shared). on the other time, we rinsed off and used hand towels to dry instead. SERIOUSLY? Also, every day we'd hang our 2 towels up to dry following use (following the mounted sign that said if we do that, they would not be replaced (ie more ecofriendly). following making up the cabin, they were always mysteriously gone and there'd be 2 folded ones up on top again. whether she just replaced them every day, or she refolded the used ones (so that we couldn't figure out whose was whose, I don't know).

I was expecting our room to be TINY and I was pleasantly surprised! There is heaps of room to store your belongings in drawers and cubby holes and there was plenty of room underneath the bed for luggage. The cupboard had plenty of room for our clothes and shoes, we just divided the hangers equally between us and folded the rest of our clothes. The bathroom was small but not as bad as I'd thought. The shower was pretty small but not an issue, and comes with soap and shower gel dispensers. The bathroom also had soap on tap dispenser which I much prefer to the bar of soap in hotels. What I loved about our room the most was sitting up in bed at night, lights switched off and the curtains open, watching the ocean go past. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was very nice. We were at mid-ship on deck 7, so it was a great location. We chose the picture window rather than a balcony. Ship cabins are small, it is a given, unless you spend on luxury accommodations. I did wonder how large people managed the tiny shower. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 4048: Very comfortable outside cabin. Quiet and in a good location for stairs. On starboard but possibly a port cabin would be better for views when in port - especially while Kilauea is not giving a lava show on the Big Island. Read entire member review >>
We were in an Ocean View cabin. VERY tiny & barely enough room to move around. But, hey, we didn't go to Hawaii to sit in the cabin. It was clean & well maintained. Great location amid ship. Made it easy to get to either end of the ship Read entire member review >>
Great big picutre window with no obstructions. What a great view. The room was well laid out. It didn't have a lot of storage room, but for Hawaiian cruises it was more than enough. I didn't need a balcony with this room. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was an Oceanview room. Believe it or not being on the 4th level was actually perfect. We walked down one flight of stairs to get on and off the ship. We walked up one flight to eat at the Cadilac and up one flight of stairs and down for the Liberty and Skyline. And the Hollywood Theatre was up one flight of stairs as well! We loved were are cabin was because after being gone all day we didn't have to get on the ship and wait for the elevators we just walked up one flight of stairs! Read entire member review >>
We were on the 4th level and our cruise travel agent made it a point to put us in an area that was away from the noise. She said we would be just below the jewelry store and we were away from the bars, restaurants, and the elevators and bathrooms. We had an extra barricade when we were docked in Maui that was like rubber barrels as bumper guards, and those made noise as the ship emptied or filled up. It was squeaky as rubber would be against the steel of the ship, but otherwise it was quiet, even as we were as close as we were to the water too. We had enough room, and was able to do okay in the small showers too. No complaints all around. Read entire member review >>
