Cabin was awful. Reeked of cigar smoke, was not a penthouse suite as advertised - was more like a large balcony suite, it was extremely old (1999) but yet advertised as a fully renovated penthouse suite and ship in general. The jacuzzi tub was old and broken, and the knobs on the tub were moldy and filled with nasty green sludge. Read entire member review >>
The room is killer! The bed was so heavenly, we actually wrote down the mattress name and will be purchasing one for home. We have never slept in a nicer bed ever! Pillows , fantastic. Our butler brought us all 2 memory foam ones each. Heaven. The balcony is huge!!!!!! Because this boat goes to the Bahamas and is not bookin it fast , there is absolutely zero wind out there at night. Some reviews said the front of the boat is windy??? I found that 100% false. We played cards, had some drinks. Woke up each morning with the first view, and at night saw amazing moon lit waters and cool lightning storms off in the distance. The room has one huge main room with curtains separating the little sleeping area with pull out couch but we never shut the curtains. My other two daughter loved their little nook that had a sliding door and their own TV. They had bunk beds. Large closets everywhere. The only thing I was not happy with was that the jets in the jet tub did not work. Having the exact same tub (by Jacuzzi) at home that is also broken, I was not surprised. The shower was nice size with 2 closing doors. Sink had lots of space. One thing I will say that was nice about this cruise.... no sea sickness. I think because you sail so slow to the next island. Only bad thing and I do mean the ONLY bad thing about the location of the room, your right above where the anchors go up and down. Kind loud in the morning but it was nice because it woke our lazy butts up to go eat breakfast:)My ratings below for the kids club are terrible only because my daughter injury on the first night In there..... so yeah that was terrible. I'm sure most kids have fun in there, no clue, I didn't make mine go back in there. They would rather hang with us anyway.
We are 40 and my husband 53, we would go again for the free booze with no kids next time. There are no water slides just one crappy kids splash puddle at the front of the boat. I do know its handicap friendly well because ...........:) Read entire member review >>
We stayed in a forward penthouse suite with large balcony on deck 9. It was a bit small in my opinion to be classified as a suite. It was one room with queen bed, there was a very small room off to the side containing a closet and a bunk bed which would be good for kids I suppose. The bathroom was small but did have a whirlpool tub which we never used. The shower was the average tube size for a ship with a closing glass door. The balcony was quite large with a table, 3 chairs, and 2 loungers. The views were the best in the house. It was so nice having a front row seat on the ship. I was initially worried about it being too windy while sailing but it was actually quite pleasant. The concierge and butler were excellent perks, they really took care of us.

Our cabin was a Forward Penthouse with Large Balcony, and that's no lie - the balcony was huge. The cabin was well-appointed and very comfortable. There was ample storage for both clothing and luggage. The bathroom was bright and clean, not overly large - but big enough. Read entire member review >>
We really had no issues with our cabin and found the size larger than anticipated. I did expect the larger bed to be in a room by itself and the twin beds in the more common area (it was the opposite) so that did make it hard in the morning to not wake my spouse but he lived.

Cabin 0064. Aft-Facing Penthouse Suite. This room has more than enough room for two people, and with a pull out bed, will accomodate 4. The wrap around balcony is to die for. Save your pennies, and enjoy the suite life. Once you do, you'll never look back. Read entire member review >>
The room was very large considering the size of most rooms on the cruise. Our room had a large balcony with 2 regular chairs and 2 layout chairs with 2 tables. One day we asked the butler to bring our breakfast from cagneys onto our balcony for us. It was fabulous!!! Our bathroom was also bigger than normal. It had a jacuzzi tub with jets and a glass shower instead of the normal small shower with shower curtain. The sink had granite or corian counter tops. There was a smaller room that had beds similar to bunk beds. I assume this was for kids traveling with you. Other differences I noticed from the normal rooms was the flat screen television, refrigerator with drinks, large mirror over the bed, 3 closets, and plenty of space. Read entire member review >>

Penthouse Suite Cabin 9002 and 9202-
Excellent. Plenty of room for everything. 2 closest in the main room and a spare closet in the bunk bed room. 1 more closet in the main room that had about 6 smaller drawers. Plus drawers at the desk. We did not use the coffe machine/expresso make but it was a really nice touch. There was plently of napkins and silverware in the room for when you ordered room service, or had a meal set up on your balcony. The mini fridge was smal and didn't have much room at all. The bathroom was great. The whirpool tub was a great touch and the shower was nice. Much better than a curtain like on Carnival Read entire member review >>
Front of the ship! Great view with spacious private balcony equipped with lounge chairs and table/chairs to enjoy morning coffee (espresso machine in room). Plenty of closet space. Quiet location. Extra services, such as butler and VIP treatment included with the room. Read entire member review >>
Great storage space. Terrific shower and jacuzzi tub (they are separate). Safe is hard to get into if you are short. The deck is to die for! Beds are comfy. You can hear the hot tub next doorsounds like a jet engine about to take off. As long as the neighbors from hell are not partying above you it is nice and quiet inside and out in the hallway. The most fun is watching the Jack-in-the-Box fellow who pops up on deck to raise and lower the NCL flag. Read entire member review >>
