Picture a floor-to-ceiling window/sliding glass door that leads to gorgeous sunsets on your very own personal veranda. In this 244-square-foot stateroom, it's yours to enjoy--along with the sitting area, priority check-in and many other amenities.
The cabin was spacious in comparison to other cabins on the newer Cruise Lines. The Balcony was even more so then cabins on other modern cruise ships. It's a shame that its going to be retired. Read entire member review >>
1136 Century Suite, with the large balcony and loungers as well as two tables and two chairs. Some soot on balcony, and the area above was washed down every morning leaving the balcony wet then. A great place for breakfast.
9165 Concierge Class. Safe not accessible as on the top shelf above eye level. Nice large shower. Read entire member review >>
We had a category NS Celebrity suite which faced the stern of the vessel. The suite itself is no bigger than a normal balcony cabin but comes with a few benefits Be very careful about booking these suites. The balconies are entirely open to the sunset bar above as only the first two feet of the balcony is covered by an overhang. There is no privacy and the noise and music from above can be irritating. This was not a major problem for us as it was cold and rainy so few people set out at night, but it could become a huge issue for people travelling in a warm climate like Mexico or the Caribbean
More annoying was the filthy condition of the balcony itself. Apparently, carbon is blown off the engine stack at night. For some reason, this carbon tends to settle on the balconies at the rear of the ship. I understand, that soot residue from the engine may be unavoidable. What I don't understand is why the balcony was not swept and the furniture wiped off before embarking passengers arrived. Dime sized pieces of soot were very visible . Be careful if you have new cruise clothes. Balcony furniture had peeling paint and unvarnished tabletops. The balcony floor was soiled and discoloured. Read entire member review >>
Located at the stern, very center suite. Directly below Sunset Bar. Very deep balcony (10') but only 3' was covered for privacy from above. Looks down upon one other deck of balconies. Read entire member review >>
