We had booked CAT OK - Mid Ship Obstructed View with a window on Deck 8 but our agent booked us in a guarantee (by mistake!) and NCL "upgraded" us to an Ocean View CAT OG with a PORTHOLE on DECK 4 Forward - NOT where we wanted to be...
Our steward was nice, but we had to keep asking for things like our water (latitudes perk), a bath mat, soap - things that should have been in our cabin but weren't until we asked. This cabin is small but comfortable for two people - the pull down bed is somewhat in the way when the beds are pushed together to make a large queen sized bed. The person on that side of the bed has to side-step and bend slightly to get into the bed.
There is plenty of storage in this cabin. 6 drawers, a full closet with some shelved and a few other shelves as well. Our very large suitcases fit under the beds for storage. The bathroom is average for a ship - split with toilet on one side of the sink and shower on the other - small but workable.
This was a quiet area with little "pedestrian" traffic in the halls, BUT when the seas got rough at nite we had waves crashing against our porthole! The last nite was the worst - around 3:00 am we started hearing a lot of random loud banging noises - I thought we hit something but found out it was the crew loading luggage into the cages for disembarkation! These cabins are very near Crew Quarters and CREW ONLY working areas and this was very disturbing on our last night aboard. Read Less
