Sail date: Nov. 12, 2011 Ship: NCL Sun
Paid a lot extra for a penthouse balcony aft of ship BIG MISTAKE!
The room and balcony:
NCL SUN Cabin 9278
Don't pay the upgrade for these rooms. The balcony patio floor is flooded or covered in soot from the smoke stack. Debris from the outdoor eatery above gets dropped down onto the patio floor or you if you are on your balcony. The room shakes and shudders from being right above the engines. Basically an overpriced oceanview room because you will have a hard time using the balcony. The smell from the fuel and the debris or soot from the smoke stack is terrible.
