Anyone stay in an angled balcony cabin

Recommended Posts

Looking at an angled balcony cabin (10784) on Escape. If you've stayed in one of these cabins, is the balcony slightly larger than the other balcony cabins?

They are a 'bargain' on NCL, since they are in the same category as standard balcony's adjacent...unlike RCL, which puts them in a higher category....

You can see the extra space on the balcony in this picture. Being deeper on one side gives the extra space.

 

Some angled balconies "face" another angled balcony (10258 and 10276) while some face forward (10184) and others face aft (10296) with a clear view along the remainder of the ship.

 

10784 is the starboard version of 10184.

We’ve stayed in many angled balconies and they are great. Extra space and you can even request a lounger from your room steward (don’t forget to tip).

We got luck on one of our advantage upgrade bids and had one one Escape, so nice room for lounger 2 chairs n tiny table. Our upcoming bliss cruise we have a beautiful angled balcony on deck 10 forward, great hidden deal

We always get angled, and have been in them on Escape 3 times. Plenty of room for a lounger with your chairs. It's the best bargain on the ship.

as others have said, we have had one on both Getaway and Escape, and have one reserved for our upcoming Getaway cruise.  Nice bit of extra room for no extra charge.

We have had them a lot and besides the bigger balcony size if you have a forward facing one the view to me is another great reason to get one. In my opinion a lot better than a standard side facing cabin. We have one coming up on the Getaway for 18 nights on a TA April  2021.

I always stay in an angled balcony (except for my first cruise when I didn't know better and my most recent cruise when I sailed in an aft balcony). You get half again as much square footage as a normal balcony, because it is twice as "deep" on one side than the other. The deeper side can accommodate a full sized lounger, so if there is not already on there, I ask my room steward for one on the first day.

PS: I never understood the privacy claims. You have exactly as much private area on your balcony as a normal sized one... maybe even more because of the extra privacy of the longer wall from one direction. If you stand out at the deepest part of the railing, people on the shorter end of the balcony can see you, but if you are seated in a chair back towards your door, they can't see you any more than they can see you when you are seated in a chair on a normal balcony.

we've had angled balconies and adjacent balconies. Truth is , on a port day, i'm off the ship and if at sea , I'll find a lounge on an upper deck , nice and quiet anyways...

Curious-has anyone asked for two loungers in place of the two chairs?

I don’t think a 2nd lounger would fit on the short side of the angled balcony.  It just fits on the longer side.

I had the angled balcony on the Breakaway a few years ago.  
Didn't like it too much.  Was disappointed at the blocked view on one side 
and being able to see all the balconies on the other side.

Thanks! I did not think there would be enough room without being squeezed so but thought what the hey perhaps someone has done two loungers.
