Stateroom # - 12016
Stateroom Category – SJ (Suite)
Starboard or Port Side - Starboard

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Yes very quiet. No rooms directly across the hall so no banging of doors across the way. It was forward so the only foot traffic was the other 8-10 rooms down that hall way.

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No


Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – No balcony but incredible view. Floor to ceiling windows across the entire suite and high ceilings. Nothing obstructing the view except the sea .

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - Did not have one but it wasn't missed because of the enormous windows that made up the entire wall of the suite.

Was wind a problem? - No

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? - No

Any specific problems with this cabin? - No

Any other comments? - Loved this cabin! It is the most reasonably priced of the suites and perfect for a splurge for two people but can easily fit 3 or 4 comfortably. It states you can sleep 6 but that might be a squeeze and there would not be any privacy for the group. We loved this cabin so much we booked it for our 14 night Panama Canal cruise too!

To the moderators, I would appreciate if we could make this a "sticky" at the top of the page for all to see.

Twice a month - I will try to post a PDF for all the ships and cabin information compiled here.

Forgot to add this important aspect of cabin #14138 on Getaway, it has the infamous pole in front of the in room jetted tub. Wasn't an issue for us but thought it should be in the cabin info

You weren't asking me, but now is as good a time as ever to post one of several NCL cabin reviews; this one's about the Alaska trip:

Ship -Pearl
Deck - 11
Stateroom # - 11030
Stateroom Category – SC 2-Bedroom Family Suite with Balcony
Starboard or Port Side - Starboard

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Very Quiet

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - yes...to a haven suite

Balcony View - unobstructed view. Balcony railing in the way when you were sitting in one of the chairs

Balcony Size? It is fairly large, comparatively.

Was wind a problem? Not at all. We were close to the coast for just about the whole journey.

Any specific problems with this cabin? - nope

Any other comments? We were a married couple and two friends. I slept in the child's room (it is just perfect for a small person, like me) where it was pitch dark just to my liking; my friend slept comfortably on the couch; the balcony breeze was soothing; the couple took the master bedroom which is outstanding in all respects. Gorgeous large four poster bed, bath with two sinks, a shower and a real tub with excellent view outside (don't bathe when you're in port!). We loved our concierge and cabin steward and had the time of our lives!

Ship - Jade

Deck - 15

Stateroom # - 15000 (Black Diamond Suite)

Stateroom Category – H2 (The Haven Deluxe Owner's Suite with Large Balcony)

Starboard or Port Side - Both...midship deck 15, spans port to starboard



Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – no neighbors...music and noise primarily from pool deck below. This actually can be a bonus when the live band on the pool deck is very good.



Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - no





Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – port and starboard balconies with amazing views. The forward view from the windows is a sweeping view of the pool decks and forecastle.



Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - oversized and one if a kind for NCL. Multiple loungers, table for four, high end furniture. A deck attendant puts out the cushions and takes care of the decks daily.



Was wind a problem? - very windy or stormy conditions will be problematic, but cruising at 14 kts is no issue.



If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? - n/a



Any specific problems with this cabin? - you must be able to climb a long flight of stairs from deck 14. There is no elevator access. This would be a problem for people with mobility challenges.



Any other comments - this suite is decadent and opulent, huge living room, curtains separate the bedroom, allowing the huge space to be opened up for port to starboard views. Large walk in closet with dressing table. Huge bathroom with separate tub and shower. Separate powder room near entry. Great sound system you can plug into using your own device. Generous area for in room dining or balcony dining. Great for couples on honeymoon, special anniversary, birthday milestone, or who just want a unique and elite experience.

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Inside the cabin was always quiet as long as the balcony doors were closed and locked. Sound from upper aft decks were clearly audible, especially at night when there were parties. Occasionally in the mornings there was vibration and shuttering noises when the ship was docking.

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - no

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – Aft, though you could see starboard as well at the edge of the balcony.

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - Larger than most in this class, believed to be second largest (deck 9 is largest). Balcony does have a large pillar in the middle of it, but it didn't affect our enjoyment of the balcony. There was a dining table with 4 chairs, two loungers and two regular chairs, with enough space left over for the boys to play tag

Was wind a problem? - definitely not.

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? - no, though we found the occasional cigarette butt on the outermost part of the balcony.

Any specific problems with this cabin? - none. Some may complain that it is far from the Haven, however we enjoyed the walk. We also enjoyed how our cabin was located near the pool and aft activities.

Any other comments? - fantastic cabin, will definitely book it again though the price has gone up significantly since people have discovered these cabins

Starboard or Port Side - Starboard Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – It was directly below the treadmills, but was NOT loud at all. On occasion, you could hear an extremely soft rhythmic thumping, but did not disturb us.
Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No
Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – Only thing out of the ordinary is the window washing machine runs on a track at the base of your balcony. It is in use on port days.
Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - Normal
Was wind a problem? - no more than usual
If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? N/A

Any specific problems with this cabin? - An entrance to crew facilities is diagonally across the hall, but did not bother us. They do tend to park the towel cart in between this cabin and another, which is a bit annoying.

Any other comments? The tub was awesome and I used it several times, usually with a glass (bottle) of wine. Very nice sized room for a couple. Spa and Haven access were well worth it. Honestly, the tiny inconveniences would not stop me from booking this particular cabin again.

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – for the most part, yes. This is a 2 BR family villa in the haven. The master bedroom was very quiet. Some mornings we heard chairs being dragged on the sun deck above, but it was very minimal. Anyone sleeping in the living area may hear some noise from the deck below where the ping pong tables are. This was only once, and it was mid to late morning anyway.

Deck 13
Cabin 13772
Starboard
Forward Midship..2 doors from stairway elevator entrance and quiet!
Bed near closet not balcony ( thought I'd hate this but actually really liked it)
Non connecting

Balcony size was normal tiny breakaway sized accommodating two chairs and a tiny table, the lifeboats did not obstruct the view to the water which I liked.

When docked in Bermuda during summer this side is shady...
Wind not a problem.


Booked late...and was disappointed in no cabins with bed near balcony. Considering we are up for sunrises, it hardly mattered.
People kept complaining about their walk to elevators which is why I think this cabin is an excellent choice...up two flights to garden cafe and pool. Down 5 to breakaway theatre. From this location, all MDRs and most speciality dinign required a walk through casino or atrium but only manhattan was at farthest end.
I'd book this cabin again in a heartbeat.

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Yes. The only noise we heard was the moving the deck chairs on the sundeck above -- and this was only one morning.

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No.


Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – Nice view, no obstructions.

Any specific problems with this cabin? - Nope.

Any other comments? -We like the location of this cabin because it was right where the hallway "ended" before going into the forward part of the ship. We never had to question if we were at the correct cabin or not. While I believe that there was a staging area for the stewards nearby, we never heard anything.

I'm now posting for my parents' cabin.

Ship - Epic
Deck - 14
Stateroom # - 14034
Stateroom Category – B4
Starboard or Port Side - Port

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – The only noise my parents commented on was that one night my Mom heard them rolling carts above her in the Garden Cafe. It didn't bother her enough to keep her awake.

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No.


Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – Good view from the balcony.

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - Over-sized balcony. This is an B4 (family balcony), but has as huge balcony. My parents had two loungers and a table out there and there was definitely room for more furniture. The balcony was also covered with an extra overhang.

Was wind a problem? - No.

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? - N/A.

Any specific problems with this cabin? - Not really a problem, but the bed is by the door.

Any other comments? -This is a great location -- very close to the elevator and stairs, which was important because my Mom has some mobility issues. There was no noise from the kids being dropped off/picked up at Splash Academy. This cabin is excellent if you want a large balcony, but not pay the upcharge for a larger balcony.
