2-Bedroom Family Villa with Large Balcony

I was looking at the 2-Bedroom Family Villa with Large Balcony on the Encore, what are your guys' thoughts on this stateroom? Is it worth the price? Please let me know!

Worth the price is subjective to your bank account and your willingness to part with it. Some of us cruise on a budget and would rather do twice as many cruises in an inside cabin while others would rather do 1/2 the amount of cruising in a balcony cabin.

For the Villa question is will you use the extra space ? Will the family hang out together in the living room all night or will you be out enjoying the ship ? Do you have a lot of sea days where you will be in the cabin and balcony ? Will you have the butler bring everyone dinner in the villa ? Will you entertain in the Villa ? If your not planning on using the the space of the villa, wouldn't 2 balcony cabins next to each other do the same thing for sleeping and showering for much less ?

The only times I have insisted on Balcony cabin or better is on Transatlantic cruises where I know I will be spending time on sea days in the cabin and on the balcony. I could also see the extra cost being worth it in places like Alaska where you want to see things go by. On my Greek Islands cruise we had a balcony and did not use it much because we were in port everyday but one sea day and at night we were in the MDR, Show room and clubs.

Sorry, I should have included that we would host a few parties, eat-in, and we would be going to Alaska. We also wanted a single room, but not super cramped, and we are okay with spending that much because it isn't financially a problem for my family.

Sounds like you will be using the space. Have a great time and enjoy the Villa.

Better yet, go for the family split level. The one with the internal staircase. BRs are upstairs, entertain downstairs. Well worth the cost.

I don't believe this stateroom is on the Encore.


NCL does not have the split level cabins, those are an RCL thing

Yeah, I was really confused by that, I went on the website, and there weren't any split levels, but I am in fact staying in a split level on my next oasis cruise!😂😂😂
