Stateroom # - 5066

Stateroom Category – Oceanview

Starboard or Port Side - Starboard

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Very quiet, even though it was below Maltings and the Martini Bar.  Only noise was on the last night.  I think we may have been above an area where they were staging luggage.  But it did quiet down sometime after 1 AM.

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – No balcony, but the view of the wicked waves out of the window was awesome!

Was wind a problem? - N/A

 

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

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - No.

 

Any other comments? - Storage space was greater than I expected.  We did not even use all of it.  Bathroom was a little small, impossible to get dressed in, but I liked the sliding shower door and the sliding door enclosing the toilet area.  Liquid soap dispenser and a small tube of lotion was provided, along with dispensers of shampoo/conditioner combo and body wash.

Ship - Bliss

Deck - 14

Stateroom # - 14880

Stateroom Category – H6 Haven Aft-Facing Penthouse

Starboard or Port Side - Starboard

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Extremely quiet. Outside of the occasional door slam down the hall we heard nothing.  

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - Yes, there is a door that connects the stateroom next door (down the starboard side, not the aft side).

 

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – The best part of the H6 stateroom is the balcony.  However, the window washing mechanism/device is just off the balcony so your view is impeded when you want to look off the starboard side.  (See pic.)  This was only frustrating during the Alaska sailing through Glacier Bay.  Eventually I was able to get the shots I wanted as the ship rotated but I wish I had known about it before selecting my room, I would have gone down a few decks.  

 

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - The balcony is large- plenty of room for two loungers, a table and four chairs. We spent a ton of time on the balcony, even on the cold days in Alaska.  

 

Was wind a problem? - Nope.  Best part of being aft. 

 

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? - YES.  Not sure it was soot, I think they were tiny beads of "asphalt" from the race track.  It became an issue when it rained and created black "mud" on the balcony and we had to be very careful not to track it into the cabin.  We ended up putting our bath mat down just inside the door.  Unfortunately it was at its worst when we were cruising through Glacier Bay and we were in and out to look at the map, change lenses, etc. and out bath mat was almost black by the time we were done. 

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - Outside of the muddy balcony and the weird device in our pics, it was really nice. 

 

Any other comments? - I liked being Aft but would pick another H6 on a different deck next time.

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Stateroom was quiet, no noise issues except for the next door cabin scrapping furniture on the deck.

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - NO

 

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – View was good, couldn't see directly down due to the cover on the waterfront but it was still very open.

 

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - normal

 

Was wind a problem? - No

 

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

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - No problems

 

Any other comments?

With the cabin being right off the forward elevator lobby it was very easy to find and access when needed. No real sound issues from being close to the lobby.  I enjoyed the shower and would pick a mini-suite again just for the larger shower with jets.

Ship - Breakaway

Deck - 14

Stateroom # - 14748

Stateroom Category – M9

Starboard or Port Side - Starboard

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Yes, close to steps and elevators, but NEVER heard them

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No

 

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – No obstructions. Nice view of the sky, ocean and if you stand at the rail, of the decks below.

 

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? -I would say UNDERSIZED. You have to sit the chair sideways on the balcony. Could not put the chair facing the ocean and have enough leg room to sit down in it, and NO, I'm not 7'3" or anything even close to that. The DW is 5'4" and couldn't face the ocean while seated in the chair. Greatly disappointing. We've never had that issue on HAL or RC.

 

Was wind a problem? - No

 

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

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - Despite the ships recent renovation, the balcony door curtain was majorly ripped in three locations close to the top. When we pointed this out to our cabin steward, someone came almost immediately to fix it. They thought they would do so there, but ended up taking it away to fix and then bring back (this was NOT a problem form our point of view). Sadly, when they came back, although it was fixed, the quality of the repair was underwhelming. Otherwise a wonderful cabin.

 

Any other comments? - Would take this cabin again

Stateroom # - 8632

Stateroom Category –SF

Starboard or Port Side - AFT

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – one deck above Bliss 

only heard the music really loud one night. 

Just rolled over and went back to sleep. Concierge says you can always call and they will lower it, but also they like to push the envelope until that call

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No

 

 

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – have always loved the AFT view. Sitting on the balcony with a book and just listening to the water below. 

 

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - normal for that size AFT, I hear Deck 10 has the biggest aft balconies 

 

Was wind a problem? - nope, but too chilly to sit outside on the ride back. 

 

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? - nope, but the bakery smells divine

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - nope. Close to O’Sheehans for a quick snack or drink. 

 

Any other comments? - have yet to be disappointed on the GEM

Any other comments? - This was my first interior stateroom (though not my first studio) and I loved it enough to book my next two cruises in essentially identical staterooms on the Breakaway and Encore. So dark! Quiet and cozy!

Ship - NCL Escape

Deck - 9

Stateroom # - 9280

Stateroom Category – Balcony (Guarantee)

Starboard or Port Side - Port

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – The elevators right next to 9280 weren't a noise issue because we were partitioned from them, but the cabin walls were thin enough to hear a cough from the neighbors or flip flops in the hallway. Especially door slams and toilet flushes, what a drag.

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - Had the option to connect the balcony to the immediate forward stateroom.

 

Balcony View - No typical obstruction, but the Waterfront ceiling overhang was flush with deck 9's floor, which we found collected stuff thrown or fallen from above decks. Get deck 10+ or specific deck 9 staterooms to help avoid seeing both.

 

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - Normal. Didn't really see the need for a larger balcony as it was decent in size. If we were entertaining however, an oversized would be a no-brainer.

 

Was wind a problem? - Even the slightest wind (and waves) caused the sliding door to creak. This never happened on RCI's Anthem of the Seas.

 

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

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - 9280 was smack-dab next to the elevators. The elevators weren’t a noise issue because we were partitioned from them. Problem #1: the cabin walls were thin and we could hear everything adjacent and in the hallway (see "Quiet Stateroom? above ^). Problem #2: the bathroom was OK in size, but the toilet paper roller is installed in a hidden place which doesn’t make sense. It constantly made us prefer using the nose tissue dispenser whenever we wanted toilet paper. Problem #3: 9280 had the bed closest to the balcony rather than the sofa (as some balconies do), which while it’s nice for couples, it didn’t work out at all when having guests over. When we did entertain neighbors, it was awkward and uncomfortable how the arrangement was. Problem #4: The dark wood and the sofa material were terrible design choices since the material it cheapened & the dark color visually confined the cabin. 

 

Any other comments? - The NCL Escape seemed to be cheaply assembled since it constantly creaked and rocked from the slightest choppiness at sea, and the walls also didn't seem well insulated or secured as evident by the constant creaking in the stateroom and several facilities. I’ve felt less rocking in smaller ships, on WORSE waters. The strangest thing was that the engine’s vibrating was felt all the way up to the 10th+ floor, with sometimes jolts of vibrations that would dissipate randomly. Why? How? Imagine having to sleep with that….NOT fun!

Deck - 14

Stateroom # - 14860

Stateroom Category – BA- Midship Balcony

Starboard or Port Side -Starboard

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Reasonably so.  Right by Aft elevators so a little bit of hall traffic, but nothing extreme.  I could hear the person in the next cabin if they were talking loudly or playing the tv, but not much.  If I had had loud neighbors, however, it might have been noticable

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? -Yes, though not to anyone we knew. 

 

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

 

Balcony Size? Normal

 

Was wind a problem? - No

 

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? -

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - None

 

Any other comments? Nice cabin - well designed with a lot of storage space. We did not feel cramped.    The only oddity is that when sitting on the couch i felt a constant vibration which made me a little queasy.  Other than that, all good.

Ship - Joy

Deck - 9

Stateroom # 9262

Stateroom Category – Mini Suite

Starboard or Port Side - Port

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – NO, well it was quiet before 7pm but then it was as loud as being *in* the Cavern (performance lounge).  It was so loud that the floor shook/vibrated and I could hear all the words and sounds from the music (mostly rock and roll) as if we were literally in the lounge.  It didn't quiet down until 10:30, and some music was still heard until 12am (karaoke).  It was horrible. 

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - Yes

 

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – Lovely view, directly under was the roof hanging out above the walking deck.

 

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? -Normal

 

Was wind a problem? - No

 

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? -

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - The horrible sound.  We complained immediately and had service staff come up to confirm the insane level of noise (and they agreed it was problematic).  As we were traveling with 2 kids it was impossible to put them to bed before the music stopped around 10:30-10:45.  They were able to move us to a new cabin after 2 noisy nights.  They told us adjacent rooms were also complaining.  

 

Any other comments? - Do not stay here unless you are hard of hearing, LOVE rock music and/or are out late every night anyway.
