These Balcony Staterooms have room for up to three guests and have two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed plus a pull out sofa to accommodate one more. Along with a sitting area, floor-to-ceiling glass doors and a private balcony with an amazing aft-facing view.
Showers are very small with outdated curtains that hamper any feeling of ample size. The splash pans are damaged ( Sun attempts to keep them repaired), but the look is that of " one star hotel". Room are tight, so layout efficiency, and redesign would drastically improve the flow......as well as new curtains and blockers. Come on NCL.....put some $$$ back into this otherwise fine ship!

We had an aft facing balcony. The room was nice enough but needed updating. The couch showed a lot of wear and the mirror in the bathroom was losing its silvering. I also did not like that the TV was sitting on the desk and was very small. One other thing to note is that there was only 1 plug in the room and it was by the desk. There were no plugs next to the bed and indeed no nightstand by my side of the bed. If you have a breathing machine, getting power to it could be an issue. The rumor amongst the guests was that there was one medical evacuation that stemmed from this setup. Still, for our needs the cabin was fine but not great.
Our steward Tedi did a great job keeping things in order and helping out. Read entire member review >>
Excellent cabin for Alaska. The cabin size is pretty much standard for a balcony. However, an aft is perfect for Alaska, since you can view the glaciers and sights without enduring the cold winds. The ship is 15 years old, but in good condition. Women did not like the location of the hair dryer in the bathroom. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was great! Clean and spacious!! The bathroom was much more spacious than I thought it would be, as was the shower. I liked all the little nooks and crannies for unpacking your luggage. The balcony was amazing! You cannot beat the view, nor the luxury of having your own private balcony. I liked the gentle war of the engines far below us, and I did not have an issue with any fumes from the smokestack. In fact I had the best nap of my life one day with the sunshine into the balcony window, and the gentle rumble of the boat. Read entire member review >>
I know it was a huge suite, shower stall, huge jet tub bath, vanity with blow dryer, twice a day room service, super comfy beds, clean linen, impeccable cleaning and room service, free breakfast, massive menu to choose from, adjoining mini suite, plenty of closet space. Balcony views were phenomenal. Private quiet and relaxing Read entire member review >>

We were in a deck 9 aft side balcony near the very back. Pleasant room, mostly quiet with some awareness of engine noise. Firm but comfortable bed, only used half of the generous storage. Enjoyed using the robes provided. Loved views from the balcony. Would stay in this area again. Read entire member review >>
AS mentioned above we were in state room 0066, an aft balcony. This was a BD balcony but had wonderful storage and plenty of room. This was our first balcony cabin but the aft location sheltered us from the wind and provided a beautiful panoramic view from the back of the ship. I am a big guy and the shower was more than big enough even though at first glance this looked like it might be a challenge. Lots of storage, great view and shelter from the wind will have us start our search in this area again. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was a balcony cabin on deck 8 on the back
of the boat. The view from our cabin was
great as we had a much wider view than a room on the side of the boat. The room size was adequate, though if we did
not have a balcony, we would have felt claustrophobic. The shower is tiny and bar soap was not
provided. So, unless you want to use the
liquid soap dispenser in the shower, I would recommend bringing your own soap. There was also a faint smell of urine in our
room coming from the toilet. We always
kept the toilet seat down, and the bathroom door shut to try to limit the odor. Read entire member review >>
