The stateroom was really beautiful! It was so spacious, and the balcony was amazing. It was really nice to have treats waiting for me, like sparkling wine and chocolate covered strawberries. The shower was also large and wonderful! Read entire member review >>
Stateroom #10666, SF (Aft-Facing Penthouse Suite), Port Side - - NOT HANDICAP A very quiet room... not a connecting stateroom. Excellent Aft panorama with one chair and two longers on the balcony. Wind was not often a problem, but we did have lots of rain keeping us inside for the first two days or so. Soot was a small problem on some days while heading back to Houston, and trash did fall from Great Outdoors (But, Jun cleaned the deck every day). We had plenty of storage space and a good-sized, lit, closet with about 2 dozen hangers. (We always carry extra.) Read entire member review >>
It was nice, but not that large or spectacular. On the downside, you get soot from the smokestack coming down on your rear balcony and we had a kid next door peering in our room from his balcony. Creepy! Read entire member review >>
The cabin was spacious and had a lot of plug in's that were 110 volts which is great coming from the U.S. so that we didn't need any adapters. The bed was super comfortable and we were able to pick out the types of pillows we wanted before the cruise started. The deck had a chair, table and lounge chair on it so it was perfect for the two of us. One night we were weren't feeling well and stayed in the cabin to watch a movie. The butler has a 2 page list of free movies they will bring to your room so that was great. He also brought us popcorn, shrimp and sliders as a snack :) The bathtub was spacious and shower worked well. The room had a makeup table outside of the bathroom which worked great. Closet was large and had plenty of hangars for all of our clothes. The room has a great espresso/coffee/tea maker and you can pick out before the cruise what type of coffee/tea you would like. The suite also had fresh fruit and flowers in it every day and the first day of the cruise there was a complimentary bottle of champagne. The bar area has champagne glasses so it was a great start to the vacation as we left Venice & had a toast on the deck. I would have loved to stayed on the ship for another week. I don't normally sleep well when I'm not at home, but this cabin was so quiet. When picking a cabin on a cruise ship, be sure to find out what is above you so you don't get stuck under a bar/restaurant part of the ship. I find that calling NCL directly and speaking to them about what you want in a cabin is very helpful. I would highly recommend the aft cabins for the great views off the balcony.

Great except for repetitive TV programming, bed slightly sagging in the middle. Canopes daily, well stocked mini bar and coffee machine. Large balcony. Quality linen. Spacious cabin and balcony Read entire member review >>
Great balcony with two plastic wicker-like loungers, two chairs and a large table. The balcony overlooks the stern and the sound of the ship moving through the waves is a real treat. You can leave the glass door open most days and nights if you want on a summer cruise because there is virtually no wind due to the forward movement of the ship. Bags of room, decent big flat-screen television with virtually no programmes on it other than a film channel and Sky and BBC news. There is a bath with a very effective shower, separate wash basin and a wc with a glass door to separate it from the washing area. There is a large walk-through wardrobe with lots of space and lots of drawers and cupboards. There is a digital phone handset that works all round the ship that can be sued to order anything you want to be delivered to your suite or to talk to the concierge to book anything. There is also a small table with four chairs. The butler will look after everything in the cabin and will bring small treats every afternoon - the chocolate coated strawberries are a real treat on one of the days! Read entire member review >>
Our cabin location was so quiet! No disturbances at all! We loved opening the balcony door during the day for the sound of the water. It was so soothing! I also loved the lighting in the cabin. There was a light down on the floor, so if you got up in the night it just lit your way, without lighting up the whole room. Read entire member review >>
We were in a Romance Suite (Category AD). It had plenty of room for two. We did not feel cramped at all. We had a queen bed, couch, chair, dining table with four chairs, desk (very small), great (but noisy) coffee maker, small fridge, lots of clothes storage, vanity (small but usable), wireless internet (for a fee), shower/tub combo in the bathroom. Balcony had two loungers, two chair a side table and lots of sun! We looked straight off the back of the ship and were on the end so no unit was to our right as we stood on our balcony. The people above could look down on our deck if that bothers you, but we could not see the balcony below. Read entire member review >>
Our suite was quiet, though small. My husband is 6'5" so had to duck to use the shower. The view from the balcony off the back of the ship was incredible and all in all we enjoyed the Penthouse Suite. Read entire member review >>
9172: Huge closet space, counter space, power glass door to balcony. Nice big room with king bed. Lighting inadequate and poorly planned. Great balcony for watching comings and goings; quiet room. Nice toiletries and linens. No comfy chair for reading. Coffee maker broke down daily but was great when it worked!
No exhaust fan in bathroom.
Horrible stench in bathroom which cannot be elimnated until plumbing is improved and completely re-done. Read entire member review >>
Great room with fabulous view but the bathroom was terrible. We had a handicapped room with a shower that flooded the bathroom floor every time we used it. Loved the espresso maker. Read entire member review >>
