2br Family cabin excellent for a family who has different sleeping habits, those who have a baby, or anyone who wants a little more space. 2 full bathrooms (1 average cruise bathroom and the master bath is AMAZING (rain shower and bath with a tv above to watch while overlooking the ocean). There is no door between the bed area and master bath which may be a problem for some but overall the cabin is great. Balcony is much bigger than 2br suites on the Breakaway/Getaway ad above ships but the livingroom/diningroom area is smaller (the table room is great even for dining for 4 people though. Storage can be an issue though if you have more then 2 people (we ended up storing clothes in the livingroom and bathroom) . Read Less

Sleeps 6 with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Large living room with expresso/coffee/tea makers. 4 t.v.s in the suite. Convenient location to Cagney's and Moreno restaurants. Private courtyard for Haven guests. Very private balcony. More than enough storage space. Two showers and a separate bathtub. Comfortable couch that can be converted to a bed. Just a wonderful cabin experience. If only all cabins could be as upscale as this one! Read Less

We upgraded to the PH family suite. We loved it! Our cabin steward Perfecto was amazing. Our butler Lea was equally amazing.

This cabin was perfect for our family. Never felt crowded and gave my wife and I, and three kids (4/6/8) enough space. The smaller room was bigger than I thought and we left the beds "open" the entire trip. The master bathroom shower was fantastic especially with the six small shower heads that worked with the large shower head all at the same time....wow!! Negatives about this room....each night we heard loud swishing noises near the smaller bedroom...I never figured out where the noise was coming from other than when they drain the pools at night I think the plumbing was above our cabin...I could also hear feet running at night above our room...Our room was directly below the game room and library so I am not sure how we could hear "feet" running at night, but we did.... The pre-cruise concierge provided us with false information regarding DVD players in the room. We were told that there were two DVD players in the room and after arriving with our collection of the kids favorite movies we found out that all the DVD players had been removed from the ship.....this was not good. We were then forced to watch one of four kids movies from the ships in house system... The location of this cabin was perfect. The gym, pool, and bars were very easy to get to Read Less

The room, a 2 bedroom family suite, was beautiful. I found this to be exactly like the NCL Dawn layout, only the Gem was refurbished with new carpeting and linens in October of 2015. It is beautifully laid out with a jet tub and glass shower overlooking the ocean. The sleeping area is very large, while the children's area is much smaller, yet very practical with 2 bunks - a full and a twin. The sitting area contains a table with four chairs and a sofa, as well as a coffee pod machine and a refrigerator. Read Less

The room was very spacious for a cruise ship. The master bedroom had a king size bed that was separated by a curtian from the bathroom. The bathroom has a double sunk, a soaking tub with a television at one end an a nice picture window with a shade for privacy. There was a nice shower with a big window again with a shade. There was a separate toilet with a phone, wow. The second bedroom is great for children, but my mother in law stayed in that room and said it was fine for her. There is a pull out double bed and a drop down twin bed with ladder access. The room steward turned down the beds every night and left us cute town animals every evening. Read Less

This is our favorite cabin and the fourth time we've had a penthouse in this location. Even though there were just two of us, we like having the extra space and the price for this suite for this particular sailing was quite reasonable. I've posted pictures of the suite on the NCL forum. When one enters the cabin, there is a short hallway into living/dining area with a door to the children's/guests' bedroom on one's immediate left. This room has its own bathroom and two fold-up beds. There's also a television in the room, some drawers, shelves, and room to hang some clothing.The dining area has a table for four, a china/crystal cabinet, a mini fridge, and a large coffee/espresso machine. The first machine didn't have a hot water dispenser, which my wife needed to brew her tea. Putu, our butler, tracked one down that did and lugged it back to our stateroom. These gadgets are about the size of an old-fashioned cash register. Straight on past the dining area is the living area: a couch which contains a pull-out sofa, an easy chair, coffee table, and flat-screen television on the wall opposite the sofa. The television has a DVD player. Beyond that is the glass slider leading out to the balcony. This time our balcony had two chairs and small table. Previously we've always had one chaise lounge and a sitting chair.Adjoining the living/dining area to the left are the bedroom and master bathroom. The bathroom features two sinks, a makeup table with hair dryer, a large storage closet, several drawers, and two safes. The WC has a clear glass door with some painted stripes, providing zero privacy, which explains why we dubbed the guest bathroom pooh corner. There is also a phone in the WC for some reason. It mostly served the purpose of getting knocked off the hook during last night visits. The shower is one of the great features of this suite. It's very large, features a floor to ceiling window against the side of the ship, and has spa features. The shower/spa has a rainfall head, a removable shower head, and four body nozzles. It was slightly disappointing that the body nozzles in this particular shower were tiny, as opposed to the very large ones on other ships. Also puzzling was the fact that all of the outlets couldn't be turned on at once. Instead of multiple valves, there was only one, which meant one could have the handheld head on or the handheld and body nozzles, or the rainfall head. Again, in this type suite on other ships of this class, it was possible for shower a deux, if you get my drift. Not so here. On the bulkhead (outside wall for you land lubbers) between the shower and the sinks is a large picture window over a bathtub. At the foot of the tub is a television, which is great if you can't bear to miss your show while bathing.Opposite the bathroom is the bedroom. The bed is incredibly comfortable and you can lie in your bed and gaze out over the bathtub window, if you're so inclined. There is room underneath the bed to store your luggage. There is also another television in your bedroom, complete with a DVD player.Prior to sailing we asked that the minibar be emptied, because we never use it. Instead, we stored our own things in the fridge, such as milk for Sarah's tea, bottles of champagne, and drink mixers.Inside your cabin you can't hear the ship's announcements, unless you have one of your numerous televisions tuned to the ship's navigation channel.Every day at four, Putu delivered snacks to the room. On some days it was canapes, sometimes it was chocolate-covered strawberries, and on others it was assorted chocolates.On the whole, this suite was terrific, as usual. If you ever have an opportunity to sail in this category cabin, you won't regret it and you'll be completely spoiled. You can fit four people in it but it's best if the second two are either children or munchkins, because the second bedroom is really designed for small people. I don't know how large or comfortable the pull-out bed is. Read Less
