Up to three guests can stay in these Oceanview Staterooms. Includes two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed and additional bedding that can sleep one more, as well as a picture window to enjoy the view. These staterooms are mid-ship accommodations, which means you'll have easy access to everything on board.
I had cruised before and this was the same type of room that I had on the other cruise line, with the exception that I did NOT in fact have ocean view this time- there were 2 life boats that obstructed my view as well as having lights on outside the window each night. Read entire member review >>
Prices for balcony rooms were a bit high for my liking, so an oceanview room was the perfect replacement. Honestly, it rather chilly most days so I don't I wouldn't enjoyed a balcony as much I previously had sailing in the Caribbean. Read entire member review >>
Very happy with the cabin and cabin service. We normally select a cabin with a balcony for warm weather cruises but decided against it due to the colder climate. We saved nearly $1,500 for two and based on the weather on our trip, we would have spent little or no time outside. Too cold and windy. The picture window was more than adequate for viewing outside. The cabin attendant did a very good job and was very friendly. Room size was good with ample drawer and closet space. Bathroom and shower were clean and fairly roomy as cruise ships go.

This cabin was located just right...Elevators were near and easy access to everything.
Lots of storage space....and I had the beds separated into two twins...Gives you more room to move around and look out the window... Read entire member review >>
Although small it helped to have the window. Slept like a baby every night. No noise at all. tV is very small however I a, not there to watch tv... Upgraded hairdryers were a big plus! Read entire member review >>
Although the cabin was small (300 sq ft) it was very nice. The steward kept the cabin clean and was extremely attentive to our every need. Frank James was our Steward and an awesome fellow. The cabin window stayed dirty the entire trip though. Read entire member review >>
We booked a guaranteed ocean view and were given room 8600, a family room that was handicap accessible. This was a good thing. After seeing a couple other regular rooms I realized how much wider our bathroom and doorway were due to the accessibility component. Our daughter loved the pull down bed on the wall, and the view was unobstructed. We lucked out. There was more than enough storage space, which we were worried about heading into this cruise. My wife over packs and I am a raging metrosexual that brought more outfits than you would think could fit in our luggage. But suits, peacoats, too many pants and everything plus our daughter’s clothes all fit perfectly. I was very pleasantly surprised. We tried to keep the room tidy ourselves and left the do not disturb sign 3 of the 7 nights. Those guys work crazy hard and I kind of felt better giving him one less room to clean a few nights than I would have about coming back to a perfectly made up room. Read entire member review >>
Plenty of storage for clothing. Sufficient walk-around space. Very clean bathroom all the time. Cute towel art animal shapes nightly. Window was spacious to sightsee attractions. Read entire member review >>
Bigger than I thought and comfortable. Very quiet and easy to sleep in. The TV was a little small and I could not read what was on the screen unless I got up and got closer. I really like that there was information on the channels that told about what was happening on board. Read entire member review >>
Oceanview stateroom in a fairly central location. The stateroom was fairly small but considering the price we paid for the cruise, the size was bearable. Bathroom was tiny - not sure how an oversized person could fit in the shower or in the WC/on the commode. On the plus side, the shower had the best water pressure I've ever had on a cruise ship! The TV was VERY small and VERY far from the bed...we like to watch TV while falling asleep - this was tough as we could barely see it. Good size window. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was verrrry tiny. The carpet was worn and dated. The lady who took care of our stateroom was really sweet and did excellent work. There was nothing she could do about the carpet which was so worn and nasty lookin I didn't want to take my shoes off. Read entire member review >>
Our stateroom is smaller than the ones we enjoyed on the Carnival ships, but was very convenient for our interests. The forward part of the ship allowed quick access to the spa, theatre, casino and Spinnaker lounge....some of our favourite places to be! This stateroom is efficient and with a view through the picture window is all we need to be happy. Besides...with Arlan looking after us, who could ask for more?! Read entire member review >>
5th floor Aft. Big window was nice, very quiet even though your under one of the main dining halls. The excursion disembarking took place down our hall so it was convenient for us to get off at the ports. The room was in great condition, shower looked great and we always had hot water Read entire member review >>
Small and cozy for 2, it would be tough for 3. A completely functional room with plenty of storage space. Just a shower in the bathroom. Small TV and limited choice of what to watch. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was clean but very small. The bathroom about the size of a port-a-potty. The only thing smaller than the bathroom was the TV. The TV was about the size of an cell phone. If you are over 50 and have 50 year old vision, you will need to set on the end of the bed to watch TV. Read entire member review >>
Our state room on deck 5 was spacious enough, and we had no trouble fitting our stuff into the closet and our four suitcases under the bed. The ocean window was big, the bathroom was comfortable, and the state room service throughout the cruise was perfect Read entire member review >>
Oceanview Stateroom #5048: Very small of course and about what we expected. However, we would prefer not having to sqeeze between the wall & bed to get into one side of the bed, nor having to squeeze into the toilet area. There was adequate room for our belongings (2 adults). The TV screen was too small and disappointing. Read entire member review >>
The cabins are well appointed and have plenty of storage for up to 4 people. The baths are the best of any mass marketed line, but the cabins also are very small. We would have liked about 20 to 30 more sq feet. Read entire member review >>
We loved the cabin and I really loved the bright colored cabin doors, there were noises from below, I do not know what that was all about, great view great windows we had adjoining cabins and loved that.
Very comfortable and lots of storage space! Read entire member review >>
The room was very clean and well maintained. The house keepers promptly emptied all the items from the fridge when we asked them to and cleaned the room every time we left the room. They also had towel animals on some days and our son enjoyed playing with them. The bathrooms were very well laid out and had great fixtures. They even had a cloth's line for hanging wet clothes in the bathroom and we were pretty impressed with that. The room was well furnished with excellent cabinetry for all our things and every bit of the 160 sf cabin was well utilized. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was small, but immaculate. There's a perfect amount of space for two, but it would be a real trial trying to fit four in there! We spoke with a family on board who did so, and though they still had fun, it would have been tough for us. The restroom is nice, since one can shut the sliding glass door to separate toilet from sink/shower areas. The shower has several very handy features: sliding glass door, clothes-line, and removeable, handheld showerhead. The water is desalinized onboard and was delicious. Read entire member review >>
I realize that cabins are not large but the toilet area of the cabin of Norwegian was so small you could barely get up from the toilet. If I were overweight I think you could get stuck in there. Read entire member review >>
We loved our ocean view room. We did not hear any hallway noise or noise from the rooms next door. We thought it was near the elevators and that would make it noisy, but there was a wall between the room area and the the elevator area and it was very quiet. We have a king size bed at home, but we asked to have the beds separated so that we could get good views from our window. The only reason we might get a balcony or an 8th floor ocean view next time is that not all the elevators went to the 5th deck and sometimes we had to walk a little further to get to the correct elevator. We were glad we had brought extra hangers for the closet. Read entire member review >>
Rooms 5040 and 5042. Nice connecting cabins. Huge picture window that you can sit in and look outside. Great bathrooms with sliding doors to toilet and shower. Lots of drawers and closet space. Quiet location. Would book again. Read entire member review >>
