These staterooms are perfect if you want to bring the whole family. With room for up to four guests, there are two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed and a convertible sofa sleeps two more. Also includes a sitting area and floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open to a private balcony.
This cabin is not the traditional balcony cabin. The cabin is located on Deck 8 in the front starboard (right) side of the ship and the balcony is enclosed and has a smaller railing and square/portal type of opening. We still had a great view. We knew this prior to boarding so it was not a surprise. Read entire member review >>
Refurbished balcony stateroom that offered great unobstructed views. Room was quiet and in great proximity to the theatre and casino. Bathrooms are a little tight with the layout. of the two "mini compartments". Room offers one closet and ample charging places. There are two hidden usb chargers in the lamps above the bed.

Clean but worn carpet. Very narrow sofa and lacking in table top space. Worlds smallest end table next to bed! Make up desk for the wife was small and crowded. Only 3 drawers to stow clothing. Good size shower, but toilet too close to wall for tall people. The TV sucks! 13" screen and no HD! Read entire member review >>
Small, as all cabins are. TV, refrigerator stocked with beverages and booze. Balcony was very nice, two chairs and small table. Aft facing so good views. Main bed comfy. Pull out sofa bed was small and meant for kids, it is extendable but uncomfortable for adults. Deck 10 very quiet, but it is further away from the ship's activities so you do trade views and quiet for accessibility. You will have to walk a lot to get to mid-ship. Read entire member review >>
I slept on the pull out couch and did well until the 3rd night. It was rock hard, so I had to get another blanket to cushion it. Then it was lovely.
Despite being small, we did not feel squished in. Really enjoyed it. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was a little small, but perfect for two people. There was plenty of room for both people on the balcony (chairs and a small table included). However, there was a weird noise when the balcony door was open. It sounded almost like there was an owl in the room. Lol. However, the room was always clean and comfortable. We did peak in to a few similar rooms set up for 4 people (couch pulled out into bed, bunk bed lowered from ceiling). That definitely seemed tight, but doable. The bathroom was definitely small (the toilet area especially tight) But the shower was amazing. We brought a small car air freshener to keep the bathroom smaller great. Read entire member review >>
It was on a smaller side as noted by other reviewers. But the balcony and bathroom were of nice size. A different layout would have been more convenient but we had no major complaints about the room or the storage space. Everything was adequate. Read entire member review >>
We enjoyed our stay in this cabin. It was a hull balcony, which means the balcony was surrounded by a metal overhang. That wasn't my favorite thing, but we still enjoyed the view. The bed was very comfortable. It was nice having a sofa and a little extra room. It could have used a good dusting, and the carpet was worn/stained. Other than that, it was great.

The room was attractive. The bedding was comfortable and the bed was OK. Little less storage than we had had on other Norwegian ships but enough. Bathroom arrangement was good but seemed my husband and I were always crawling over each other with the bathroom and closet being so close together. Read entire member review >>
We were in the Penthouse Aft Cabin - 8630 and it was wonderful - very beautiful design & extremely spacious. The list of amenities were EXTENSIVE! We will never go to a lesser category than Penthouse. The views were great and if we wanted to see the view from the ship's front in the morning, we just turned on the web cam on Channel 24. We were worried about being above the 'new' bowling alley on the Pearl... although we could sometimes hear the pins; and it might disrupt extremely light sleepers - it did not bother us at all. We did make our friends with a couple on Deck 11 who had smoker come down from the outside cafe on Deck 12 (never thought about that). However - everyone should check out the amenities which come with the Penthouse Suites! Read entire member review >>
Near front of ship with hallway that was twisty which made navigation to it a bit difficult. We found it easier to go to deck nine and walk to end of hallway and go down a level to navigate more easily Was very quiet and had nice hull or cove style balcony. Tended to have more wave action because of forward location on ship Read entire member review >>
The cabin itself was fine once the smoke smell was extinguished. Our cabin steward Manny was excellent and unfortunately the only stand-out crew member we encountered on the entire ship. We had a "sheltered balcony" which meant it was enclosed inside the hull of the ship and had steel around the balcony rail (see the pictures link). This proved to be a perfect set up as it did a great job of blocking the unwanted wind and cold while we were out on the balcony. It was also very private. The beds were excellent and we enjoyed many great nights sleep. The TV was super small (smaller than my computer screen) but it did the job. There was tons of storage space and at least three outlets which were great for charging PED's. The bathroom setup was one of the best with a large shower that has a door instead of a curtain, and a toilet area that also has a sliding door. Unfortunately the shower water pressure was dismal so extra long showers were in order. The cabin location was great being close to the forward stairs and only one deck above all the lounges. It was always quiet too which encouraged afternoon naps after exploring the ports of call. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was ready by 2pm. We usually go cheap and get an inside room but with the 2 little ones we decided to splurge and get a balcony. So glad we did as this gave us a space to hang out while the kiddos slept or needed down-time.
The cabin was nice. Small, as to be expected, but with plenty of storage for our things, including under the beds. There was no space for our stroller inside the room so we stored it on the balcony which worked out just fine.
The room was very clean, but there were stains and signs of wear and tear on the carpet (which did not bother us). The room was well appointed but we had too much furniture in the room with a crib so we moved the coffee table out to the balcony (which our room steward had no issue with). The crib was a fold up pack n play so when it wasn't in use we could fold it up, which was great. With the crib in the room, the fold out couch was not an option so DS slept in the pull-down bunk bed. He had no problems with this and loved it. The rail on the bed was short but he did not have a problem staying safe.
Our bed was super comfy, we love NCL bedding. The bathroom was adequate and the shower was roomy for a ship shower and we love the sliding glass door and retractable clothes line in the shower. The vanity and sink area had plenty of storage for our stuff. Read entire member review >>
Comfy beds, very clean, great balcony. The TV is too small. One thing was there was nothing good on the tv. All ship stuff and news. 1 movie channel and no guide.
Pearl and Ari did a great job with our cabin....Thanks guys! Read entire member review >>
