average size and layout, loud mechanical pump sound going on all day, many complaints on the cruise board about it, NCL ship staff said they were not aware of any customer concerns, it is all over the reviews. Balcony was very dated and in need of repair, table had multiple cigarette burns, floor was very stained and in bad condition. Read entire member review >>
Beautiful cabin. Had large balcony which was wonderful, but could not see ocean from bed. White dividers blocked view. Maybe if bed was in a different position.
Loved having lounge chairs.
People smoking on their balconies was a problem for us. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was more spacious than I thought it would be & extremely clean, bathroom was also bigger than I expected, balcony magnificent, our steward Arvin was absolutely wonderful. My husband had an accident while on vacation which required some special amenities & Arvin couldn't do enough for us. HE IS A WONDERFUL AMBASSADOR FOR NORWEGIAN!
Our 1 complaint was the a/c in the cabin. The a/c kept shutting off & we had to get up several times a night to turn it back on because the cabin got so warm! Read entire member review >>
Room was spacious, however, beds were uncomfortable, both twins bed( made into one queen) kept separating. I had to put a towel between the closet doors because of the constant banging when the ship moved. and the hanging had to be unhung, they were annoying at night sounding like bells jiggling. The closet is right next to the bed, so the noises may seem louder. Read entire member review >>
Fantastic room. Double bed, couch turned down into twin bed, 2nd twin dropped from ceiling. Clean fresh white linens. Comfortable mattresses and pillows. Lots of storage space for the 4 of us. Beautiful large balcony with 2 loungers and 2 chairs and a small table. Read entire member review >>
Nice and roomy for 2 people. Loved that the bed is near the balcony door (which we left it open during the night to listen to the waves during the night). Balcony is a little larger than average. The closet was ok, just enough hangers for us. Shelving above and on the side within closet to store clothes. Also, more storage under the t.v. and huge drawers under the pull out couch.

Located near the front of the ship and it was a bit rocky during the storm traveling down the Atlantic. My mom and I both got sea-sick on day 2. The bed was very soft and there was plenty of storage. The large balcony was worth the upgrade because it was able to fit 2-3 long lounge chairs. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was very nice and as a 4 time sailor with NCL was very happy with the quality and layout of the cabin. Plenty of storage, however the service throughout the ship was very lacking, not up to NCL standards. Read entire member review >>
We traveled as a family of 5 but we were in 2 cabins. 2 adults in the large balcony room 9118. If you're sensitive it can be considered a far walk from all activities but it was fine with us. The room was clean. It was small as expected. I believe they say it can fit 4 people but I couldn't imagine more than the 2 of us in there. I'm very glad we got the larger balcony. The kids were in an inside family stateroom (9441) which seemed to suit them fine. Read entire member review >>
The room was spotless, comfortable and had a large balcony, overseeing the ocean, Large bathroom with shower. Every day that we returned to the room, it was cleaned and they had made some figure out of towels that would be on your bed. If you had left something on the bed or floor, this figure would have it on itself. Mine was often found wearing my sun glasses. Read entire member review >>
The room was too small. The beds in this room, were pushed up against the closet, so much so that you needed to shimmy over to open them if the beds were separated. There is no coffee table to use if you order room service. The tv remote couldnt be used by the person closest to the closet. The sofa was stained in several places. The towels sometimes had makeup stains. The bathroom was clean and average size. The room was far down the hall close (from the front stairs) about 10 rooms from the front of the ship. I liked the size of the balcony and would not want a room with a smaller balcony. The balcony fit one lounger, 2 chairs and one table. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was nice with a good sized balcony. Only drawback is the closet can be difficult to access as the couch was right up against the doors. Decent size bathroom and the service was very good. Read entire member review >>
We had two balcony cabins, they were spacious, with plenty of storage space. In fact, even the bathroom was a nice size and meticulously kept clean by Velda. The balconies were more than enough for 2 pp and ours (9736) was slightly angled and set up for 3 with one long lawn chair and two deck chairs. Actually my kids had two long chairs and two deck chairs. I'm not sure why people complain about the balconies. Get a mid-ship cabin if you can, this ship is massive and many activities take place in the back of the ship. I'm no slouch but it's quite a walk from the back to the front of the ship.

We booked last minute with a GTY Inside and ended up in the BB category Mid-Ship Balcony. I thought the room was perfect size. I had a large balcony on the EPIC 2 months earlier and thought this cabin was way more spacious and I liked the bathroom better as it was one contained unit. The balcony is small though - just enough for a couple chairs and a small table. This room has the couch by the balcony doors which I thought worked out perfect. You have decent room between the couch and the counter area. Read entire member review >>
I loved the location of our cabin. Decks 6, 7, and 8 are where most things are located and we rarely took the elevator unless we were going to the garden café, which we did not go during peak times. Did not have an issue with the elevators except the last day. Had the mini-ste which is much wider than Epic's but the balcony was almost too long as could not see the ocean from bed because the side walls were so deep. Not a far walk across the ship that I noticed, as I tend to be directionally challenged, so saw more than I planned on. Read entire member review >>
Loved our B6 cabin the balcony was huge and we even had a lounge chair. It's in the front of the boat so if motion bothers you might not want this category. Cabins are narrow and a little tight but the bathroom was nice and modern. Read entire member review >>
