With room for up to four guests, these Oceanview Staterooms come with two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed and additional bedding to accommodate up to two more guests, as well as a picture window with a great view. These are mid-ship staterooms, which means you'll be right near everything on board.
Small and compact with more space than you would think. En suite very small even for the average person, a tight squeeze.
Alwaays serviced to a very high standard by the staff. Read entire member review >>
As expected,nice square window with unobstructed views.
The steward Adil made it special for us.
Floor five so when reach ports ,it's very easy to walk down to 4 for diembarkation as lifts overcrowding with everyone trying to get off. Read entire member review >>
Cabin is just okay. It is a good location, but is really designed for 2 beds. Put the beds together and there is no room for dressing and you keep bumping into things. We were promised an upgrade by the NCL Rep at a travel show, but she got fired/or quit before we sailed, so no upgrade. Read entire member review >>
Loved the bathroom design and functionality. Hated the shampoo and soap. Bed was huge and comfortable. Window was large. Sound proofing was average. Main cabin space was limited due to extra bed on the wall. TV system was ok. Read entire member review >>
The only way we could silence the TV was to unplug it. In the ten days we were there we didn't have one hot shower. It was reported to the steward but nothing happened. I had to ask for toiletries even thought they were supposed to be provided. We ran out of feminine hygiene bags on day two and were not replaced. The toilet had a constant bad smell and was only relieved by leaving the light/fan on. Read entire member review >>
Space and storage was adequate. Bathroom was sized as expected but nice layout with good size walk-in shower. Clean and well maintained. Bed was hard. Comforter was too warm. Lighter blanket would be better. Read entire member review >>
Room was spacious and perfect. Quite happy with the view. Smelled like smoke in the afternoon though. Also last day I think something was spilled in the hallway as they had air handlers blowing right outside our room. Read entire member review >>
Terrible. Very small, no fresh air, air conditioning not functioning properly. No way to walk around the bed, no luggage storage under the bed. Very small closet. Uncomfortable beds. Walls are made out of cheap sheets of plastic with no insulation, so one hears everything that is going on or being said in the next cabins. Read entire member review >>
After going through the onboarding processes we found our room, 5120, an oceanview picture window cabin, and the first word out of both of my wife's and my mouth was "small". We took a spin standing still, got the logistics of the room down and the urge to use the potty hit me. Well, if I thought the room was small, the bathroom was even worse! I sat on the toilet, unable to close the partition and by the end of the cruise, my thigh had a nice red indentation from leaning on the partition wall. To dry off after the shower I had to step out into the room. IT WAS SMALL! Read entire member review >>
The cabin was always kept clean by the magnificent man who kept it clean. This cabin was on deck five and had a picture window so one does not feel claustrophobic as they would in single solo room. Read entire member review >>
Loved our cabin 5102, with big window and spacious room, comfortable bed, and great cabin steward Raj. Because of the cooler time of year, we didn’t choose to have a balcony, but could sit in the window and look at the sea each day. We could go one level up to get to restaurants (no rooms above us kept noise down) and one level down to exit ship for excursions. Calm seas helped. Read entire member review >>
In order to get from Deck 5 amidships, you have to go to the forward elevator, take it to Deck 7, walk the length of the ship rearward, and then down one flight to the Dining room on Deck 6. Brochure does not reflect that aft stairwell from deck 5 to deck 6 is now permanently blocked off and not accessible by elevator or aisle way. May be unique to Norwegian Star & Sun or maybe not.

Upper decks forward seemed very noisy when seas were rough. Our Deck five cabin amidships was fine, especially when we pulled the bed away from the wall to cut down on transmitted hull noise. Read entire member review >>
We had a mid-ship ocean view cabin on deck 5 to minimize any motion if we encountered rough seas. the seas were mostly glass smooth in the Baltic. The cabin was very good, except we heard noise overhead from the walking corridor and especially from the Art Auction moving their stuff around using a "Cart" with a flat spot on one of the wheels.
For our next NCL cruise, we are moving to the same type cabin on the opposite side of the shop under one of the specialty restaurants to minimize the overhead noise. We think this will make it a very good location near both elevators at a good price point. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin functioned very well for us. We used the drop down upper bunk as a storage space for our large rolling duffle bags and our coats, etc. The cabin was in good condition and kept very clean by our cabin steward. This location was convenient to the two main elevators allowing easy access to wherever we needed to go. Read entire member review >>
Located midway between front and mid-ship elevators. Under a walkway; sounded like elephants stampeding every evening at bedtime! Mattresses had big gullies, leading to difficulty getting out of bed and morning backaches. Read entire member review >>
5082 which was about mid-ship. Word of caution! - if you are a light sleeper, DO NOT select this cabin. It is below the Art Gallery and Gatsby bar, and passageway between Stardust and Spinnaker. Read entire member review >>
We were impressed with the size - it was bigger than it appeared when we looked at the pictures online at NCL.com. We were able to unpack our entire suitcase and fit the contents in the drawers - there were 6 or 7 deep drawers and a closet for clothes. We brought a door hanging bathroom back for all that and it was put to good use. There was also a room safe which we also used. The TV is a small, maybe 10" screen - runs a map of where you are, current weather/sea conditions, pool temps, etc. There were a few TV stations, and one station playing movies (new movies!) throughout. We didn't watch a lot of TV, just before bed and when we were getting ready. The showers were odd - not a lot of water pressure, and it was hard to get the temperature right, but it got the job done! There was a close line you could pull out in the shower too to hang up wet swim wear and towels.
We were on deck 5 with a picture window, right below a high traffic area and it was very loud at night sometimes. We were also near the crew spaces, where they came out with carts and such, but that wasn't as loud as the people walking overhead. The picture window was great, but was covered with salt from the water so hard to see out clearly. We would like to try a balcony room, and definitely would do a picture window room again, nothing less than that as it was nice to have natural light and a view. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 5632 - sleeps 4 with one pull-down bunk, and 3 singles (2 made into a king-size? for my wife and I) across the end - think one gigantic bed across the end of the cabin with your head against the window and your feet toward the door). Plenty of storage, pretty quiet except for occasional metallic clanging noises coming from way down below (not really a problem unless you're a super light sleeper, and mostly only seems to happen during docking maneuvers). I don't think my wife or kids even noticed them (I'm the light sleeper and it really didn't bother me). Might be bit cramped with 4 adults, but I'd do it - we don't spend much time in the room. Nice ocean view window. Close to the Aqua and disembarking. Read entire member review >>
Family room sleeps 4, with trundle bed and folding bunk. Great location, right next to the gangway for getting off at ports and close to the elevators. There is quite a bit of noise from the foot traffic on the floor above. Read entire member review >>
It would be nice to have a sitting area however, the stateroom is adequate for two people. Bathrooms have glass doors to devide the toilet from the sink area. Showers are HUGE! Read entire member review >>
5592 was good and had a decent size picture window. It has a bunk bed and a pullout bed that turns the two twins into a king bed. It was comfortable; and, initially when we came in, it was clean. The dressers are real wood and nicely placed in the room. For a cruise cabin, it was a good size. For an old ship, the decor was good. Read entire member review >>
Plenty of room for me and my 6'4" husband. Sheets were a little stiff and noisy, but we had plenty of pillows. A great view from the picture window on Deck 5. Closet was big enough with enough hangers for 2 people for a 1 week cruise. The cabin was generally pretty quiet except when people let their children run loose in the halls.
