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 porthole that offers a great view. These are mid-ship staterooms, which means you'll be right near everything fun and exciting on board.
At first we had booked a guaranteed inside but later took advantage of NCLs upgrade program which got us an ocean view on deck 4. These have porthole windows as opposed to the larger ones on deck 5. The way down location concerned us at first but it turned out to be really good. We were located midship, so it was an easy elevator ride up to the buffet and pools. We also had the added bonus of being close to where you disembarked at each port. We technically didn’t even need to get any tender tickets (though we did anyways lol) as there are checked on a higher deck. Essentially, we could have left at any time we wanted to. We were even able to disembark from there once back in Venice. And our steward was fantastic!
We also noticed that our cabin was bigger than an inside. The extra space was appreciated as we were two adults and a child. Another thing, there was plenty of space to unpack, more so than on the other ships we have been on. Read entire member review >>
Basic room. Bed split into two twins. Ice was filled upon arrival but we didn't use it so no need to have it refilled. Bottle of sparkling wine presented. Room Steward was attentive and took care of needs as they came up. We really enjoy the location of this room for excursion purposes. It's quite near one exit/entrance that is sometimes used. Other times we are at least already on our floor. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was okay. Our problem was that the windows faced the life boats so we couldn't see out. It wasn't a major problem was we like a darker room. We actually prefer inside cabins so that we can sleep better. This room, however, was a little bigger than an inside cabin. Read entire member review >>
Cabin fine - apart from finding used underwear in the drawers-rang reception to have removed-night porter came complete with gloves to remove but did not clean the draw-c/o a few days later and about the growing dust in cabin-cabin porter was hauled up in not a nice fashion and accused of not cleaning properly- We told supervisor that it was not the cabin porters' issue unless he had been asked to come and clean, it should have been cleaned by the night porter removing the soiled items!

Although small, our cabin proved adequate for our needs, including space for my collapsible wheelchair. The porthole enabled me to deal with my claustrophobia. The bathroom was quite small, but, again, adequate as long as only one of us at a time was in there. Read entire member review >>
The layout of the cabin was terrible. To get into the bed on one side you had to step over a table. To get in on the other side you had to lean forward as there was a drop down bed on the wall. Read entire member review >>
More spacious than I had anticipated. We had two huge cruise cases as well as four other pieces of luggage and had plenty of room to totally unpack and put away everything. Cabin always clean and bathroom was very roomy due to the split layout. Read entire member review >>
For a fairly cheap room on a low deck it was fine. We had to kneel on the bed to watch out the porthole. The head occasionally had a foul odor, but the crew kept working on it. The engine noise was the worst part. Sometime it sounded as if a jet was taking off just outside. The sound of the waves rushing by just a few feet below the porthole actually was soothing after the first night. On the one stormy night, the waves washed over the porthole every few cycles, which was scary at first but finally kind of exciting. Read entire member review >>
