NCL Star Deck 6 OceanView cabins 6500, 6502, 6506, 6508

Recommended Posts

We sailed on NCL Star for 2 week Panama Canal cruise in January 2019 - We had cabins 6500 and 6502 near the casino and theater on Deck 6. This was quite convenient as there was a short-cut into the casino, we just had to walk down the passage straight into the casino (just past the rest-rooms). No need to walk to the starboard side and then enter the casino on that side. We did not find any noise drifting from the casino (although we did expect there to be some casino noise before we cruised this was not the case). If we stood in the passage when a show was on in the theater we could hear some of the show performance, but once in the cabin very little noise bleed occurred. Shows end by 10.00PM or 10.30PM latest and we were never in bed before that time anyway. So overall - very quiet. These are not connecting cabins, but then being that they were at a dead-end passage, we could leave the doors ajar so that the kids could go back and forth between the cabins.  


There is no cabin 6504. At the end just past 6500 is a storage room although the crew are rarely in there. The door was open once or twice when I saw a crew member in there, but we did not hear any noise coming from there even when they were in there. The angled "wall" next to cabin 6500 is actually a door from the theater. We used it to short-cut from the theater to the cabin - especially if someone needed the restroom. 



Looking down the passage to the casino. Light green carpet was the cross passage to the elevators, after which you can see blue carpet where the casino restrooms are and then red carpet where the slot machines are in the casino. Never heard any noise from the casino.



From the elevator lobby (casino door is right behind me), you can see the short passage for these 4 cabins The dark area on the right is the entrance passage to the theater, and this runs behind the wall to our passage.

6502, 6500, storage room and the secret door to the theater (below the green light on the ceiling).



All 4 of these cabins are OV and the same. Could sleep 4. Two in beds, 3rd in bunk and 4th in trundle bed.









Toilet cubicle and shower cubicle.



No more door hangers for DO NOT DISTURB !! There is a dial behind the number and you can turn it from WELCOME, to DO NOT DISTURB, to MAKE UP CABIN, or TURN DOWN.
