Spa Balcony staterooms have a queen-size bed (that can be separated), pillow top mattress, a television, vanity, full closet with sliding doors, sofa bed, private shower, and a shaving bar. Guests also enjoy complimentary access to the Thermal Spa Suites.
The spa balcony included access to the thermal suite which is divine on the Breakaway. There were no other perks other than proximity to the spa with the spa balcony room. This particular room is quite noisy. Overhead there are the ping pong tables outside the spa next to the main adult pool.. However it does have an expanded triangular balcony due to being on the "hump" of the ship. I probably would not choose this room again due to the noise. But it did get me up early -you can sleep when you're dead :) Read entire member review >>
Kept very clean. Had very little drawers for clothes. Room attendant while very nice forget one day to replace towels when removing dirty ones. Tv remote was replaced 3 times and still barely worked. Took cruise with 26 other family members. All 12 rooms had same problem with remotes. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was roomy and clean. Steward was average at best, but did his job. Not friendly, nothing over the top. No reason to add to his pre-paid gratuity. 5th cruise, first time the cabin steward wasn't an integral part of out experiences. Having already sailed on the Epic, having a sink in the actual bathroom was heaven! Shower was roomy - wish the water power was stronger. Wish the water was colder in the sink for brushing teeth. Wish the towels were softer and more plentiful. Loved the spa balcony amenaties - Bvlgari Shampoo and Conditioner - amazing! Access to the thermal spa - spectacular (though an extra worker at the desk would make the check in/check out process much quicker). Read entire member review >>
Cabin is decent size with lots of storage--someone actually left a bunch of white plastic hangers so I put them to use. You can hear people playing ping pong at certain times but other than that quiet. Read entire member review >>
Plenty of room. Good sized bathroom. Kept well stocked and cleaned. Steward attended to all needs (and we had several requests) Steward always around when needed, easy access. Wish you could still smoke on the balcony though, my only gripe. Read entire member review >>
Clean, average size cabin. Has a dressing table/desk combo. EXTREMELY SMALL balcony. Bathroom decent size. Nice shower. Enough closet space and storage space for 2 people traveling for 7 nights but no extra. Comfortable bed/bedding. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was large enough for three of us and had plenty of storage space. Very clean, with access to the Thermal Spa which was awesome! The balcony was small but sufficient. Coffee maker was available in the room which was nice, there was also robes and toiletries. Read entire member review >>
Cabin had more than enough space for 2 people and it was kept spotless by our room attendant.
It had a nice view, and it was the last room before the bridge entrance so not much hallway traffic. Read entire member review >>
Decent size my only complaint was one side of the master bedroom you had only 18" of space to enter or exit the bed. closet doors open into the bed and you had to stand to the side to open them to get ones clothes Read entire member review >>
Loved our room . would have liked the balcony to be larger but it was still wonderful. Noel did a great job of keeping it clean and tidy. Ice twice a day, honor bar was nice to have. we had room service once for dessert late one night it was prompt. there is a ton of storage space albeit it is odd . the closet was not well thought out but it worked. plenty of hangers ,shower was a decent size, water pressure great, water temp perfect Read entire member review >>
The Spa Balcony rooms were not as nice as expected. The TV was small and could not be moved to be seen by the person on the far side of the bed. The TV quality was poor and had only a few channels, all generated from a European satellite. I definitely was not interested in European soccer and cricket.The bed was reasonably comfortable, but there were no firm pillow options. There are no outlets near the bed so if you have a medical device or wish to have your phone charging and nearby you will need to obtain an extension cord from the guest services desk and avoid tripping over the cord if you want to walk to the balcony. The shower was tight for an average person. It would be very difficult to use for a large person. The same applies to the toilet, both in size and ability to flush. The hair dryer is hard wired and located at the end of the room near the balcony, far away from the bathroom, which is a little strange. There was plenty of space to hang clothes, but little to put folded clothes. There was little room to maneuver in the room with 2 people, much less if there were others with you.

Cabin was nicely appointed but a little bit smaller than we were expecting. We didn't feel cramped, but it was definitely cozy. The balcony however, was rather cramped, with barely enough room for the 2 chairs and tiny table. The bathroom was a nice size, as was the shower, with plenty of shelf space for all of our toiletries. The bed was very comfortable and there was plenty of storage creatively worked into the room design. We had great weather and calm seas so despite behind high up and in a forward cabin, we barely felt the ship move at all. We chose the starboard side so that we could watch the sail away from our balcony and still enjoy great views of the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Scenic New Jersey, and the Verrazano Bridge.

Port side cabin, Forward, right off the elevators. Queen size bed next to the balcony with a couch. Balcony was small, just plenty of room for 2 chairs. There was a coffee maker and refrigerator and safe in the room. Just enough room for 2 adults, plenty of storage room for your clothes and stuff, no so much for your bags, but we stowed them underneath the bed. Bathroom was nice, just enough. Shower is a good size, not too big, but plenty of room. Read entire member review >>
