These balcony staterooms are located either forward or aft. They include two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed, a sitting area and floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open to a private balcony with amazing views.
Clean and comfortable. Loved having a balcony! WE had coffee and juice brought to the cabin every morning and sat on the balcony.
The shampoo and body wash were watery. Bring your own conditioner. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was loud and we got little sleep most nights. One reason is that it was next to cabin stewards area where the stewards were talking and bumping carts into other objects. One other reason is that the flushing toilets are suction-based and are very loud. You can even hear toilets flushing in other cabins. There was a creaking railing on the ship that sounded like someone was moving deck chairs all night long. This was never fixed even though it was reported. Read entire member review >>
This was our first time in a balcony cabin and we enjoyed it very much. The cabin was on the port side which allowed us to view the shore. The cabin steward was excellent by being very attentive to detail. Read entire member review >>
Cabin is small by new cruise ship standards. King bed was adequate as was the sofa. The flat screen TV is at an angle to the bed and makes it difficult for viewing with someone walking around on that side of the bed. Wish they would have put the flat screen tv in the wall in front of the bed! The balcony was adequate for everyday needs. There was barely enough shelf/drawer space for two people. My wife spent the greater part of the cruise using her luggage as her drawer space. We never met our room steward. We would recommend calling housekeeping to get to know the name of your room steward, just in case you need him/her. Read entire member review >>
We had a standard balcony on deck 7. It was probably the smallest balcony room we’ve ever stayed in but the ship was built almost 20 yrs ago. There was adequate storage in the room, plenty of drawers and shelves, plus room under the bed for our 2 large suitcases. The bathroom was fine, about similar in size to other cruise ships. Unf they do not have junior suites on this ship so it’s either this or larger suites.
The new TV in the room was nice although a little small. They offered nearly-first-run movies on 2 channels (ex: Spectre). The balcony was very comfortable with a table, 2 chairs, and 2 footrests. You definitely need a balcony for cruising Hawaii! We never used room service as there is now a $5 charge for each order. Exception was you could use the morning order card to get a cold breakfast without a charge, but if you ordered a hot item, it was charged. Read entire member review >>
The cabin location and layout were pretty good. I commented earlier about the state of repair on arrival and the temperature control issues. But it was comfortable for the 7 day cruise once things were squared away. Read entire member review >>
SMALL! Limited channel selection on a limited screen (size). It's 2016 folks, There was a large wall space (only large thing about cabin and it was underutilized) at foot of bed where decent size screen could be placed. Read entire member review >>
Great cabin, did not know it was handicap and we are not handicap but I guess the ship needed to use the room. It had a bit of an odor when we first boarded but they quickly resolved it.
Wider room due to access and nice size balcony as well. Could not complain at all about the room! Much better than the last NCL cruise with a category of balcony stateroom. Read entire member review >>
The cabins are very small. So after asking the cabin steward, we kept the wheelchair folded in the hallway outside the cabin door because there is not enough room in the cabin. Fortunately we did get a cabin with a balcony, at least there are two chairs and a small table on the balcony. Beside ship information, the TV has news (CNBC, MSNBC) but not regular broadcast channels (ABC, CBS, NBC). The cabin steward was very friendly and attentive. Although he was not very forthcoming with important information unless we asked a direct question. Like when we asked for more glasses, he said "Housekeeping and kitchen are two different departments. So don't put glasses on the room service tray in the hall for the kitchen to pick up. Just leave them on the desk and I will wash them for you". Read entire member review >>
We enjoy being towards the back of the ship and 7666 was a basic balcony cabin. The cabin was clean and the bed was towards the closet. There was a coffee maker, but we had pastries and coffee delivered via room service every morning. The bathroom was basic, with your typical little round shower with the curtain that tends to want to stick to your body. The balcony was a basic size with 2 chairs and a small table.

We had a handicap cabin which means our cabin was very, very spacious. The bathroom was immense. For all of you who have cruised you know how small the showers can be. Not this one. Two if not three persons could have fit at the same time. Read entire member review >>
We had a balcony room on the 7th level and the room was very nice and having a balcony to sit on was a definite plus on the trip. The room was clean, well designed and comfortable and the staff very nice. Read entire member review >>
