With room for up to three guests, these staterooms have two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed and a pull out sofa to accommodate one more. They also feature a sitting area, floor-to-ceiling glass doors and a private balcony with an amazing view.
Other reviewers were right about the NCL Sky: without a doubt, the *smallest* balcony cabin we have ever had on any cruise. This ship dates back to 1998 and it shows. Overall, the ship isn't bad but the cabin size was painful for three people to move around in.. errr.. dodge each other. Our 33 year old daughter came along which made things tighter than it might be otherwise for just two. Still smaller than by today's standards. Read entire member review >>
Great cabin, quiet and enough space. View from the back on the balcony was lovely and the whole cabin was spotlessly clean. Bathroom compact but adequate and I would go for 9078 again if we sailed on the Norwegian Sky. Read entire member review >>
Small rooms, not much storage, good sized closet. Under pool deck and quit noisy with deck chairs being dragged all over. Thank goodness I can sleep through just about anything. Not recommend for light sleepers! Read entire member review >>
The balcony cabin I had was smaller than some inside and outside staterooms on other ships I have been on and the clothesline in the restroom is not located in a good place so that if you wanted to hang wet swimsuits it would drip right above you if using the sink or toilet. The sink stopper did not work. Not very important, but it would have been nice if there was a spa menu in the room and there was very limited desk/vanity space. The sound on the TV in my cabin was very distorted, even at low level volume. Read entire member review >>
Small old cabin but clean. Has either 2 single beds with a sofa or a queen size bed with a sofa. Small flat screen tv. Desk/dressing area. Only 1 outlet so bring a power strip. Very small closet. Very small bathroom. Small balcony. Hard beds. Safe in closet. Read entire member review >>
Worn out cabin. Cracked lampshades, visibly worn furniture that was threadbare in places. Clean but very cramped cabin compared to other ships I've sailed on. Phone didn't work throughout the entire trip. Read entire member review >>
We loved our cabin steward he was wonderful Alejandro. He was kind and provided advise, our room was cleaned daily and everyday we had a special animal created with towels. Even with the cabin being small, always having it cleaning we did not mind the small space. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was just perfect, there's nothing like waking up in the morning to the first light of the sun as it rises out of the ocean, gorgeous sight to see really. And Jimmy our Cabin steward was just amazing, very prompt, attentive and always making sure we were happy with our room. Read entire member review >>
Room was fine, not new but worked. The sliding door is only on one side, the other side is a port hole, I think this has changed on newer ships. The décor is not as "rich" looking as other ships, but all is clean and in working order. Bathroom and shower were fine. Read entire member review >>
Ok so this room DOES exist!!! We were a little worried about it when we saw this room was assigned to us, there are pros and cons so read on. First this room is a little bigger then all of the other standard balcony rooms onboard. It was added at a latter date I guess but the one big difference is the bathroom. It is smaller and does not have any room around the sink to set down anything. When you open the door there is a sink and no counter around it at all! There is a wall vanity with a little storage behind the mirrors but thats it. The shower is also smaller the shower curtain was clinging to my back the whole time I was in there and the toilet is almost in the shower with you!! There are towel racks which are overflowing with the towels, hand towels and wash clothes because there is no other place to put them. You literally have to use the toilet to set something down unless you want to put it on the floor! That said the overall room is bigger then the others, because of the bathroom layout and the door comes out more into the hall giving you a little extra space. So if you can deal with the bathroom then you will have a little more overall space. Its a personal preference I guess, but no matter what it was fine for a 3 day cruise, not much noise at all and the elevators are close. I am basically writing this because there were no reviews of this cabin which made us worry even more, if you book it dont worry its really there and not too bad of a cabin for a 3 or 4 day.

0253: again, great location
plenty of room in closets & I always over pack! I think for my 4 night cruise I brought 8 pairs of shoes! But, again, I am an "over packer" and I had plenty of room.
2 good points to remember......
suitcases can be stored under bed
and I saw someone said in another post the water did not get hot. Well, I thought that too until I figured out, it's opposite of what you are used to H vs C. Read entire member review >>
Very quiet, balconies are perfect, bed was comfy, room decent sized overall, clean and simple bathroom, water wasnt that cold in the sink but not an issue, Small but ok TV and small couch that pulled out. Overall was perfect and we loved it! Read entire member review >>
Was small (smallest balcony stateroom we have ever had). On top of the tight quarters, it lacked sufficient storage space for 2 adults, even though it was listed as able to accommodate 3 people. As a result, one of us had to keep our clothes in our suitcase the entire cruise. The space around the bed was inadequate for one person, let alone for more than one to circulate.
The Bathroom shower was equally inadequate, including a shower curtain that would not stay in place, which we believe explains why, upon our arrival, our Stateroom's carpet was wet! The carpet was also worn and dirty, the room could have been cleaned better, the edges of the carpet near the walls were very dirty and dusty, the room did have a refrigerator with beverages for purchase, the hairdryer was very old and provided very little heat and power, the TV in the cabin was very old, storage is very limited in the cabin with a very small closet area and only 3 small storage drawers for clothes.

This cabin was on the wrong side of the ship to see the islands when the ship pulled into and out of port. It was nicely located near the elevators and the main dining rooms and pool deck. The furniture was falling apart and in need of repair and cleaning. Average in the way of room size and balcony. Read entire member review >>
Room 0222 (10th floor)
Right around the corner from the elevator, this room is a good size for a typical stateroom. The large round window and sliding glass door allows for plenty of sunlight. The balcony has a full size privacy panel between other stateroom balconies. The doors on this particular room don't close easily and I'm sure my neighbors always heard us slamming the door. Plenty of closet space with drawers inside. The hairdryer is hidden in the top desk drawer! The shower water temperature fluctuates somewhat, so set it on the cooler side at first. Plenty of storage room in the bathroom for toiletries. Read entire member review >>
We had a balcony room on Deck 9 and we really like it. The room was small but the balcony made it feel larger. I was thankful that we had our own bathroom, television, sofa and comfortable bed to ourselves. Read entire member review >>
Our room was located directly under the spa - very quiet. Rooms were VERY SMALL!!! However, the room next to ours 0201, is the same category, but is a handicapped room, and was HUGE!!!!!! Showers were maybe 18-24 inches and circular....very wierd. Read entire member review >>
