NCL Cabin Information Compilation -NO CABIN QUESTIONS POSTED HERE PLEASE!

Recommended Posts

Ship - Sky

Deck - 8

Stateroom # - 8201

Stateroom Category – SB (Owners Suite)

Starboard or Port Side – N/A – only view is forward

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Yes, very quite

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? – Yes, but we did not use that feature

 

Balcony View (Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue.) – Amazing views 180 degrees. Sunset and sunrise are the best. It can be a bit awkward when pulling in to dock and other ships are backed in you end up being the spotlight and tend to be waved to from the other ships guests.

 

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? – Oversized as it had a private hot tub, held two loungers and a small coffee table. We ended up taking one of the high chairs from the bar out to the balcony so that we could sit and see above the rail. (Solid steel bottom with a wood handrail due to being on the front of the ship).

 

Was wind a problem? – At times but it seemed to depend on which direction we were going. Not as much of an issue as we pretty much stayed on the balcony the whole trip.

 

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

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? – Sliding door was very heavy, carpet was worn in a few spots, hot tub was a big let down as the faucet was the size of a standard kitchens and took forever to fill. The heating element must not of been working while we were there as it didn’t stay hot.

 

Any other comments? - You can look up to the bridge from the balcony. When sailing at night you are required to keep the blinds shut (or white lights off) while using the balcony so you don’t hinder the view of the bridge. Our neighbors were reminded of that on the second night. Stateroom comes with your choice of 3 liquors. (We are not big drinkers so they became gifts to those that attended the meet and greet.) Side partitions extend enough so that if you were standing at the rail or leaning slightly over your neighbors to your sides would not see you.

Ship - Epic

Deck - 12

Stateroom # - 12312

Stateroom Category – B1 (Aft Balcony)

Starboard or Port Side – N/A – only view is aft

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Somewhat but it was due to our neighbors so that can vary.

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? – No

 

Balcony View (Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue.) – Amazing views 180 degrees. Sunset and sunrise are the best and listing to the water turning while underway.

 

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? – Normal for an NCL aft balcony. We had the chairs replaced with loungers so we could really enjoy the views and sounds

 

Was wind a problem? – Not on our balcony but you do feel the wind gusts effecting the Epic due to its height and sometimes we felt like the boat was "shuddering".

 

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? – Not that we noticed

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? – I believe it’s a common Epic problem that occurs when you turn the faucet on. If you turn it all the way on it will hit the bowl at just the right angle so that it skips out of the sink. We just kept a towel on the side for when we forgot.

 

Any other comments? - The swaying of the boat does not match the direction of the bed. Not a problem for us but I have a friend who likes sides because the bed faces fwd/aft and when the bigger boats sway in in the wind it somewhat rocks you to sleep.

Ship - NCL Dawn

Deck - 8

Stateroom # - 8020

Stateroom Category – BD

Starboard or Port Side - Starboard

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Mostly. Due to its proximity to Stardust, you could hear the music, but there was not usually anything going on in the Stardust when we were trying to sleep, so not usually an issue. Some noise when getting to some ports.

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No

 

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – No obstructions. However, this is a hull balcony, and I will try to add a picture to show. This room is just about on top of the W of Norwegian. To get the best view, you had to be standing, but you can see while sitting.IMG_0207.JPG

 

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - Normal, I guess, this was my first time in a balcony room, so I was excited by it no matter what!

 

Was wind a problem? - Never

 

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? - Not aft.

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - None, whatsoever.

 

Any other comments? - There was some rust on the balcony, but nothing that detracted from how wonderful it was!

Ship - Breakaway

Deck - 14

Stateroom # - 14196

Stateroom Category – MA

Starboard or Port Side - Port

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Paper thin walls, we were next to a connecting Family Cabin and it appeared the parents slept in one cabin

and their children in the one next to ours, very noisy kids. Also below the Garden Cafe/Outside Pool Deck, would occasionally here running and chairs being

moved around at 6:30 AM each morning

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No

 

 

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – Under the superstructure of Deck 15 Garden/Cafe and Outside

Pool Deck/eating areas. Still got plenty of sun, couldn't see the fireworks from our balcony due to the overhang. Only smelt cigarette smoke a few times from

those smoking outside on the balconies

 

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - Tiny for a Mini-Suite!

 

Was wind a problem? - Yes, first and last days at sea but that was due to the weather, otherwise ok

 

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

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - Sub-standard A/C, even with our Cabin Steward and Maintenance checking it out. Carpet stained, vanity scratched up,

stains in the bathroom sink, very slow Interactive TV and TV remote hardly working unless you sat right in front of the TV. Only heard sporadic ship announcemts

in the cabin, however that was probably good not hearing about bingo, art shows, gold by the inch sale, etc announcements

 

 

Any other comments? -Good location, not too far a walk to the aft elevators and up one flight of stairs to deck 15 and the Garden Cafe and pools

(note comment about noise from the Garden Cafe and pools). We had the best Cabin Steward ever of our 20+ cruises: Renson! Nominated him to the

Hotel Director as the "HERO" of our cruise. The next morning the Hotel Director sent us a plate of decadent chocolate and a signed Thank You note

Ship - Gem

Deck - 8

Stateroom # - 8024

Stateroom Category – Balcony

Starboard or Port Side - Starboard (Forward)

 

Quiet Stateroom? – Very quiet. I had thought there would be more noise during evening performances in the Stardust Theater below, but it was not bad at all.

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No.

 

Balcony View - "Hull balcony" type, but no obstructions.

 

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - Normal.

 

Was wind a problem? -No.

 

Any other comments? - Great stateroom. No specific problems. I really like the Gem's bathroom layout: the 3 compartments for shower, sink, and toilet. The Gem shower size is luxurious compared to that of the Sky!

 

Having just read a couple of threads related to staterooms with a "hull balcony", I should qualify that Gem 8024 has a hull balcony, as do all the Deck 8 cabins. Obviously the full-view balconies are nicer, but nevertheless the hull balcony view is still very nice (and has no real obstructions) and I enjoyed it.

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? -

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? -Our toilet wouldn't flush for much of the cruise. We were led to believe that this cabin frequently has this problem because of where it's located in the plumbing design. I would never get this cabin again.

Ship - Breakaway

Deck - 14

Stateroom # - 14858

Stateroom Category – BX (Regular Balcony)

Starboard or Port Side – starboard

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) –Yes. We very rarely heard any noise from the Garden Cafe above or from Spice H2O. Slight "noise" on the balcony with an evening party at Spice H2O.

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? – No

 

Balcony View (Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue.) – No obstructions, although the lifeboats do stick out a little for the straight down view. We did have a generous overhang (above) which was wonderful for keeping out the rain and sun. Sun worshippers may object to the overhang, but we loved it.

 

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? – Normal for the Breakaway. Two chairs and a very small table. Perfectly adequate for two people.

 

Was wind a problem? – Not normally.

 

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

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? – Only with the closet. About half of the hangers didn't work (the top of the hanger slipped all the way through the opening on the part attached to the closet rod). Bring your own hangers.

 

Any other comments? - The bed is by the balcony. If the bed had been by the closet, it would have been quite difficult to access the closet. For storage, don't overlook the two drawers under the sofa and the inside of the hassock (ottoman). Plus lots of storage in the bathroom. Cabin is conveniently located not too far from the aft stairwell.

Balcony View (Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue.) – Amazing views 180 degrees. Balcony under bridge, so when standing at the rail you could see all around.

Stateroom # - 14014

 

 

Stateroom Category – H5 Haven Courtyard Penthouse with Balcony

 

 

Starboard or Port Side - Starboard

 

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Very quiet. Because it's at the end of the hall and around a corner, there was no foot traffic and felt even more private.

 

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No

 

 

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – No obstructions. Only has one balcony/suite next door (left side).

 

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - Normal for NCL. Even though we are used to larger, there was more than enough room for the two of us. If we were on a Caribbean cruise, it would have been nice to have a lounger as opposed to two chairs, though the table worked for propping up our feet.

 

Was wind a problem? - No

 

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

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - None

 

Any other comments? - We would definitely book this great cabin again.

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

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No

 

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

Great port-side view, very quiet and relaxing.

Was wind a problem? - No

 

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

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - None

 

 

Any other comments? Because it is an accessible cabin, the door is automated, and the floor slopes upward to the balcony. VERY limited counter space, and only three 110 outlets - two by the vanity and one on the wall by the door for wheelchair recharging. If you do not have a wheelchair, bring in one of the tables from the balcony and position it under the outlet for charging.

Sorry if I break the format requested but I wanted to post the cabin numbers of the obstructed oceanview cabins on the Jewel in which the windows have been opaqued for some reason. You will have filtered natural light but NO VIEW whatsoever! It makes these cabins much less desirable IMO.

 

This information comes directly from the Jewel's hotel director.

Stateroom # - 10712

Stateroom Category – BD (Forward Balcony)

Starboard or Port Side – Starboard

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems)Yes

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? – No

 

Balcony View (Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue.) – Typical balcony view & nice. View of extended balcony below on deck 9 and extended mini-suite on deck 8.

 

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? – Normal as a regular balcony for Breakaway/Getaway ship class. Room for 2 chairs only plus a very small table, barely the size of a room service tray.

 

Was wind a problem? – Not on our balcony

 

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? – Not applicable

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? – I believe it’s a common Epic problem that occurs when you turn the faucet on. If you turn it all the way on it will hit the bowl at just the right angle so that it skips out of the sink. We just kept a towel on the side for when we forgot.

 

Any other comments? - Stateroom is 4th. one from the front of ship, Haven corner FWD suite is just ahead of this pic. Very quiet location & minimal foot traffic. Just a long walk - good for exercising several times daily. Corridor is narrow & not easy to pass thru if service cart & equipments from housekeeping are in the hallway - passage to the Studio Lounge is thru the same hallway - about 145 steps from the FWD elevators & stairs to this balcony cabin, so it is a long way. With ocean waves at 14.5 ft. or "large" waves & cross wind, some motion are felt but a smooth ride overall at light to moderate seas of waves under 10 ft. Noise & vibrations are felt when ship is in port or tendering and steering sideways to turn tightly.

 

This is a room for 3 with the sofabed near the balcony door, the bed is next to the closet & close to the bathroom & entry - the official deck plan & layout is misleading suggesting the sofabed is next to the closet.

 

Aside from attached pictures, full pictorial review is linked here - please direct comments & questions to the review, thanks.

Ship: Jewel

 

Cabin 8583, Inside

 

Port

 

Not connecting

 

Quiet? Mostly. This cabin is next to the steward's supply closet, even though it is not shown onthe deck map. We heard the cart being taken out and put away put it was not bothersome. Otherwise very quiet.

 

It is a sideways cabin with the bed to the left of the door and the athanor closet to the right. A bit snug, but plenty of storage. The toilet is angled and does not having a sliding door which makes the bathroom feel larger and affords more comfortable seating.

 

There is one electrical outlet which is at the vanity area. The location is quite convenient even though deck eight canbe a bit of a maze.

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – for the most part yes. Some times would here scraping of deck furniture above in the morning as they were setting them out or putting them away

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? -no

 

 

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – Great! The only thing some people might not like is the fact that there is an over hang right below the balcony, so you can see straight down to the water

Was wind a problem? -no

 

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

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - the only thig we noticed was that the sliding door that separates the master bedroom from the living room sometimes rattled when the ship was really rocking

Stateroom # - 8657

 

Stateroom Category – IC

Starboard or Port Side -

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Yes, OH said he could hear slight noise, but I could not. I felt it was quite quiet and it was on the quiet part of the ship.

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No

 

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – N/A

 

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - N/A

 

Was wind a problem? - N/A (No)

 

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

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - None that I found. People on other parts of the ship were reporting water problems, but we did not have any. Everything was clean and worked as well.

 

Any other comments? - If booking this cabin, please note that there is only 1 bed hanging on the wall. Other is a pull out bed, which will join with the other 2 beds. Might be bit cramped if booking more than 2 people. For 2 people this cabin does its job, a bit far to walk (you have to cross Blue Lagoon) and go to the other end of the hallway, but other than that, very quiet, not much traffic on that part of the ship, room service was not a problem (10-15 max). Would book this cabin again without hesitation.

Ship - Breakaway

Deck - 14

Stateroom # - 14104 (Spa Balcony)

Stateroom Category – B8

Starboard or Port Side - Port

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Mostly yes

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No

 

 

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – This room is the third from the front. The bridge sticks out in front, so there is no view looking forward. Otherwise, the view is great.

 

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - Normal (and bigger than I expected based on other comments). We found that placing the chairs sideways (facing each other) gave us way more room.

 

Was wind a problem? - No

 

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

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - The only complaint is that the cabin is across the hall from the access door for the crew. We could hear the door slamming all night long. Otherwise - no other noise in the hall. The room is also directly above the shuffleboard court. So if you keep the balcony door open, you will hear the clicking noise from pushing the markers. Not an annoying sound - bit took us a few days to realize that was what the noise was.

 

Any other comments? - Would take this cabin again. It was wonderful to have access to the spa.

Stateroom Category – Minisuite

Starboard or Port Side - Starboard

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Yes

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No

 

 

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – We liked the overhang because it gave us partial shade, but some people don't like it. Close enough to the bridge that we could see what they were up to, but not bumping right up against them. We thought it was a a great view.

 

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - Seemed generous to us, but this was our first time in a Minisuite.

 

Was wind a problem? - No

 

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

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - No

 

Any other comments? - We like being at the forward end of the ship. We were just forward of the forward elevators. No Inside Cabin opposite us. Occasionally we could hear Housekeeping staff opening and closing door opposite us, but usually very quiet. To our Left is a Penthouse Suite, which was very quiet for our cruise. Very close to the Bridge Viewing Room, all we had to do was cross to the Port side and go a few cabins forward. My only concern was that our cabin steward had a LOT of penthouse suites to clean, so we always seemed to be last, no matter what our little sign said.

Stateroom # -12272

Stateroom Category – Angled Balcony (B4)

Starboard or Port Side - Port

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Yes

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No

 

 

Balcony View - Excellent view looking forward and straight out at the ocean. Great view looking aft if you stood at the railing. Looking straight down, you see life boats and the roof of the Waterfront.

 

Balcony Size? This cabin has an angled balcony which has more space than a regular one. We had one lounge chair, two regular chairs and a small table. We even had enough room to position the chairs in different ways as desired to block or seek the sunshine. We've already booked another angled balcony.

 

Was wind a problem? - No

 

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

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - No

 

Any other comments? The bed is by the closet. We had previously sailed the BA with the bed by the balcony and were disappointed that this cabin was reversed but ended up preferring the bed by the closet. We enjoyed sitting on the sofa looking out to sea (when it was too rainy to sit on the balcony). We had two night tables with different widths. The narrower one was placed between the bed and the closet, making a tight squeeze to access the closet. We asked the cabin steward to move the wider table (the one between the bed and sofa) and to move the bed away from the closet. We tried putting both between the bed and closet but didn't need that much space. With the bed moved slightly towards the sofa, the wider table by the closet and the narrower one by the sofa, we had plenty of space to access all of the closet.

Stateroom Category –regular balcony

Starboard or Port Side - port

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – My cousin was in this cabin. Since she's not on CC, I am posting on her behalf. First, you can sometimes hear music from somewhere (I assumed from the deck 8 venues). Second, there is a water pipe running down along the wall between the bed area and the balcony (it's on the balcony). Between 4 AM and 8 AM every morning, the pipe made a rhythmic tapping noise which woke them up. We assumed the deck crew was washing down the upper deck, and the noise was water draining from above. Bring ear plugs if you're a light sleeper.

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No

 

Balcony View - Excellent looking out to sea. Great view at the railing looking forward and aft. Looking down, you see the lifeboats and the roof of the Waterfront.

 

Balcony Size? This is a standard sized balcony for the BA. Two chairs and a small table.

 

Was wind a problem? - No

 

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

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - Just that water pipe!

 

Any other comments? The bed is by the balcony. My cousin liked being near the elevators (aft).

Stateroom Category – MB (Mini-Suite)

Starboard or Port Side - Starboard

Quiet Stateroom – Yes, no noise issues

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - Yes, but we didn't utilize.

 

 

Balcony View - No obstructions, there is overhang from Deck 12 that makes this a shaded balcony, which was fine with us.

 

Balcony Size? I guess it's a normal size balcony, but compared to other balconies I've been on this one was big. three chairs and a table, I could stretch my legs out and barely be touching the rail (and I'm 6' 3").

 

Was wind a problem? -No

 

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

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - None.

 

Any other comments? -We loved this cabin. The bathroom is bigger than some European hotel's I've been in. Like others, it has three sections, the tub on the left, and then the same depth as the tub is the sink area and then the toilet area, with a sliding door.

 

the room has plenty of storage in the closet and a few drawers. Bring hangers. And a flashlight might help when looking in the closet.
