These Oceanview Staterooms that have a porthole with an obstructed view, can accommodate up to four guests. Includes two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed and additional bedding to sleep two more. And of course you'll have access to room service and tons of other great amenities on board.
Good size, shower in particular, view was obstructed by a lifeboat, but better than an inside cabin. Can't really complain as we had a good deal from Voyage Prive. Ryan, our steward was brilliant, some lovely towel art! Read entire member review >>
cabin was roomy and clean and tidy. only bad point which was a problem was the heat during the night, sometimes unbearable. The A/C appeared to be turned off during the night. during the day, no problem. Read entire member review >>
I had requested a large window when booking our cabin and was told that the room selected had a large window. When we got to our room, it did not have a window, just two narrow, elongated portholes. The room was very dark and we were not pleased. The first night we had one steward but the next day, another steward said he would be cleaning our room. Two days before the end of our cruise, another person said that they would be our room steward. Our room did not get cleaned that night . Read entire member review >>
Handicap cabin. Noisy does not describe it. You are in the hall that they use to push carts back and forth for the OSheeans 24 hr restaurant. There is doors banging, carts bashing into your wall right where on of the beds is, and workers singing at 5am.
Shower roll in, we had to put towels all over the floor or we would have had a swimming pool.
No chair or couch. Yes a larger room, but not very functional if you are not handicapped.
Also light came in from the lifeboats through the window, always looked like day light. Hard to sleep with the bright light. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was the long way, it was fine. Closet door and bathroom doors hit each other, but not really a big deal. The toilet area has a siding glass door, it felt very cramped. The view was fine. Two life boat met in the middle in front of the window, so you could see plenty of the ocean. Read entire member review >>
We were OK with this cabin because we didn't spend much time in it, we were pool side most often. On other cruises we've opted for a balcony since we planned to be in the cabin more often during fall or winter cruises. Location was great, very easy to get to the stairs and only one level down to dining. Plenty of storage in this cabin. Did have a few negatives though: Workers were often outside the window working on the lifeboats, no noise but no privacy unless drapes were closed. Location is above shuffle board court so often lots of activity could be heard through the closed window. Cabin to the right of us was occupied by some seniors that spoke extremely loud all through the day and even very late at night. We talked to guest services, although there was nothing they could really do. It really was almost as if we were sharing our cabin with 2 other guests, we could hear every word the man said. It was loud enough to wake you up out of a deep sleep at 1:45 in the morning after taking a sleeping pill. We stayed out of the cabin as much as possible to avoid listening to them talk constantly. First time we've even encountered this on a cruise, it was frustrating and very disappointing. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 8620 is over the 5 o'clock somewhere bar. They do karaoke at night. Do not take this cabin if you go to bed early. The room and bathroom are really big because this room is handicap accesible. Read entire member review >>
Tight squeeze getting in and out of the double bed. Lots of storage, mini fridge, safe, TV worked well. Cabin steward was pleasant and cheerful and took great care of the cabin. Read entire member review >>
Nearly perfect cabin. Yes we did look out onto a life boat; but above it we did have about 16-20" of starboard viewing. Very, very quiet entire voyage!! The best bathroom layout we've seen. To the left a large shower with sliding smoked-glass door. To the far right the toilet, again with a privacy sliding panel. In the center was the sink with plenty of shelf space above, counter space on either side of the sink and a full-width shelf beneath. A nice desk with large mirror. To the right were three stacked drawers and two shelves above the desk extension. NOTE: There is only one electrical outlet. Bring a surge strip of 6 plugs for all your charging needs. We had a large closet with appx. 15 hangers, a shelf below and floor space beneath. There were another three drawers. OH, we each had large suitcases: they DID fit easily beneath the beds--which were quite comfortable. We had a nice sized refrigerator (we just put all of their stocked items in the top cabinet shelf during the trip. Our cabin steward, Jaime, saw to our every need, from two wine glasses by mid-day, every day and fresh ice twice daily in addition to the cutest towel animals and mints each evening. Just one deck above the wrap around Promenade, Deck 8 was quirky--no walking down endless hallways--see deck plan. Through it mid-ship area it is right above the Grand Atrium and features the Blue Lagoon 24 hour restaurant with menu items (fantastic chicken wings, delicious tomato soup, and PB&J from the kid's menu to give you a peanut butter fix) and the Moderno Churrascaria speciality restaurant (think Texas de Brazil) which was delicious from appetizers through desert.

Cabin 8086: Ample closet space.
Ample space for 3 guests but not for 4.
Nice bathroom layout with doors separating shower & toilet areas.
Ample space under beds to store luggage.
Ample desk areas and drawers, mirrors, shelves.
Cabin 8082: Same comments as for cabin# 8086 BUT noise in morning (0630hrs)because across the hallway is crew stairway/space & storeroom. Read entire member review >>
8118 was close to the activity but still quiet; small but adequate; adjacent to stairs and elevators. Obstructed view means that you're looking at a lifeboat and slice of ocean, and that's enough view for me to avoid seasickness. The bathroom is adequate but would be awkward if not impossible, for plus-size people. I was annoyed to get a bill after drinking the bottled water on our desk, and I said so and it didn't go on the bill. There was virtually no engine noise, no issue with music as the nearby lounge act ended at midnight. Another time I'd consider a balcony suite, well worth it to have a private shaded spot to relax.

Cabin 8572 with an obstructed view was very nice. The obstruction was minimal in my estimation and we only lost the bottom third of the view to a life boat.We had a window, not a port hole in this cabin. We had great ocean views and were very pleased. Mattresses, are in dire need of replacement. Six large drawers plus a large closet with additional shelving inside and over the vanity area provided ample storage. Professional-type hair dryer at vanity. Only one outlet for electrical items. Bring an outlet extender or small extension cord. Bathroom was among the nicest I have experienced, as it was divided into 3 sections by plexiglass sliding doors, allowing for privacy. Television was old tube style and very small. There was a mini-fridge with bar items for sale. This cabin is in a very good location, near enough to everything and far enough away to avoid noise.

Room: We booked an obstructed oceanview room, which means that while there are 2 windows in the room, there is a lifeboat in front of them. We didn't want to spend the money on a balcony, as we figured we wouldn't be spending much time in the room anyway. The windows were nice because we could get some sunlight in. Additionally, we could see straight through the lifeboat on my boyfriend's side of the bed. The room itself is pretty tiny, but it works with 2 people. I couldn't imagine being in there with 3 people. There were two twin beds pushed together with one set of sheets and a duvet, but you couldn't really tell that it was 2 separate beds. I only knew from reading all about the rooms online. There was also another bed that you could pull down from the wall to form sort of a bunk bed above our bed. There was plenty of storage space in the room - a closet with 4 shelves inside, 6 drawers, a vanity, and another table. After reading all of the message boards on Cruise Critic, I brought an over-the-door shoe organizer, which I placed over the outside of the bathroom door. Super handy. I put all of the little things in there like sunscreen, our sunglasses, my little wristlets, etc. I don't like clutter, so it was nice to have a place to put everything. I had also brought a hanging cosmetic organizer which I hung on one of the hooks in the room. We (well, I) kept the room very organized, so I never felt like we were cramped. The bathroom was also very tiny, but it works. There was a sliding door between the toilet and the rest of the bathroom. The shower was fine, and there was a bit of storage space above the sink where we placed our toothbrushes and such. There was also a clothesline in the shower where you could hang wet clothes.

Cabin 8120: Handicap accessible/Cat.OK. Because of its layout the cabin seemed larger than it was. Plenty of storage, a very large bathroom, with a walk-in shower, and pull down shower seat. Plus plenty of safety bars. The cabin a a king size bed, a bunk bed, large picture window, fridge, safe, tv, and a ramp to get into the bathroom. One major drawback, was that the ramp was the same color as the flooring, hard to see. My wife tripped over it once, and slipped going down causing injury to her right ankle. This happened on the last day of the cruise. The ramp should be a different color and texture than rest of the flooring.
Except for the mishap, cabin 8120 was a great cabin. Read entire member review >>
Our obstructed ocean view vertical cabin that was across the hall from where the stewards and other crew would enter. Sometimes you'd hear noise coming from there but not much.
Any noise basically came from noisy passengers walking down the hallway. Usually they weren't too bad but there's always some obnoxious drunk, child that hasn't been taught inside voice, or perfectly sober adult that hasn't grasped that concept as well, being closer to the stairs and elevators meant that you'd hear them more than you would in traditional horizontal facing cabins.
What you do have is the lights from deck 7, even thought the drapes were light blocking some would still seep in from the bottom so I'd suggest a sleep mask. Read entire member review >>
We found our cabin to be very spacious. The bed was very comfortable, not like the reviews we had read that they were just a piece of foam over a mattress. We had an obscured view cabin and don't think we would pay extra next time for that type of room. The bathroom was not spacious but for the time we spent in our cabin, it was okay. There was plenty of space for out clothes. Our room steward bent over backwards for us. He was so pleasant and smiled all the time. He really seemed to enjoy his work. We always had fresh ice and a supply of soda. I really liked the animal figures he made with the towels. Very cute. Read entire member review >>
When three women travel together there is a LOT of stuff. Considering two are teens, double that amount. We were booked in an obstructed view outside stateroom on deck 8. The layout of the room was terrific (two lower beds, on Murphy bed on the wall), a small desk area, two separate banks of drawers (3 each), an excellent sized closet (that included MORE shelving and the safe), two small bedside tables, and a bathroom that totally ROCKED. There was also a small TV (I heard a complaint that it wasn't a flat screen but really??? We weren't planning on spending any more time in the cabin than what we needed to sleep so WHO CARES???) and a small fridge.
Let me tell all of you ladies out there...never in my life have I been on a ship with a bathroom that size. The area was SO well laid out. The toilet area was separated from the vanity area by a small sliding glass door. On the other side of the vanity was what I consider an oversized showed (for a ship) also enclosed by a sliding door. Really? No lousy shower curtain? Room to shave your legs? It was shear heaven! Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was very roomy. The biggest downfall for this particular cabin is having a trundle bed versus and additional bunk or pull out sofa. Thankfully for me, I shared a cabin with my daughters. If I was in a cabin with people other than family, I would be very uncomfortable and feel like we were all sleeping in one bed. Definitely not a good decision on NCL'S part.

8596...strange bed setup for four guests. A trundle pops out between the single beds and one bunk. Better hope you like each other because you sleep all in a row. I slept on the trundle next to my husband and our granddaughter next to me. Her brother was above her in a bunk. Read entire member review >>
Room 8070 is between a large and small lifeboat. You have a pretty clear view of the water from this one. The hallway for floor 8 is a bit difficult to navigate because of all the twists and turns it makes to compensate for the outside area. The room was poorly laid out, but I think that is the case for all the OV rooms on this ship. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 8112, obstructed view. Enough storage. Beds are pushed together and at different levels so a couple sleeping together has to negotiate the gap. No place to sit other than the bed and the desk and table chairs which were like kitchen chairs and uncomfortable. Roomy enough for two people. Read entire member review >>
Wonderfully laid out bathroom with large shower. We had obstructed view so had a great view of a life boat, but at least we had daylight coming in. Hallway was quiet. Not too many children or young people on this cruise. Read entire member review >>
