Cruise Ship Cabin Size sqft Ranges

So we all know when the cabins are all labeled "Balcony cabins are approximately 300sqft" and when you call the cruise line (as the website advises if you want to know more about cabin size) the rep will SWEAR to you that all balcony cabins are exactly 300sqft. Is there a website or other way to get cabin-specific info on the actual size of the room or your just left with approximately 300sqft? (if you do some digging you can get it to a range, say 280-364sqft)

Actually no, I am going to be staying in a room like this on the Royal Princess this summer. It was listed for a price between an obstructed and unobstructed oceanview. Listed as Obstructed balcony. I suspect this was an error but a cheap(er) cruise

Now this is a balcony. LOL---Had to take two pictures to get it all in. Probably never get one close to it again--Owners Suite. On the stern port side. You could look off the port railing and see everything forward. The balcony almost went to the aft center of the ship, so you could also see sights on the starboard side aft.

I like it! Would enjoy staying there for any cruise. Thanks for sharing!

OMG! you could LIVE out there....

Nice, would consider that prime real estate right there.

Now somewhere up in here someone made a statement that its hard to get the same cabin more than once...When I said we've already done it, on at least two ships, let me bring that up to speed. Cruised on BREAKAWAY this past nov, and of course, we're going again ..leaving for NO tomorrow am...same cabin...cant remember how far in advance we booked the thing, its a primo bumpout top deck starboard forward. Now then, it just so happens we're going on GETAWAY, her sister, TWICE after that...same cabin number as BREAKAWAY, bump outs again. In the midst of this we're gonna try to book one onboard this trip if we can get what we want, but I digress. About a month or so ago, NCL's new schedule came out for 2020 and a piece of 2021, so we booked two more on BREAKAWAY again. This time, being a genius, and not consulting the MISTRESS of the UNIVERSE, I decided I wanted to stay portside, bump outs, and so that's what I did. Forgot to mention it until she spotted it in our paperwork this am. (suicidal tendencies)..Told me if I wanted a different view, she made some colorful suggestions on how to accomplish that, and proceeded to call NCL bright and early this am. She was able to change one of them right back to the same cabin we had before (in NOV) and will have this that's THREE sailings, same cabin, and a limited number of bump outs available to boot. The other she couldn't change, but claimed since we've never sailed portside (I have no real idea why) she'll put up with it once, just so she can prove how wrong I was in the first place. Compared the cabin deck plans for GETAWAY and BREAKAWAY, and theres so little variation that we even have the same number on GETAWAY,,,So I guess you could make the case we've done it FIVE times, on two ships, not counting doing it on SPIRIT back in the day.

Just so happens the mega ships always port the same way, even if they tender, and the view is usually better, including in NO both ways. The smaller ones usually turn around, but not always.

Gawd I need this cruise..hope that feeling NEVER changes...even if Im a hammock...well...not...

Yankee47, have a wonderful cruise! I'll check out your review in March because you return about the time we leave.

Thankyou dear...determined to try a few venues we didn't do last time...we have 10 days to do it. Mostly included so what the h. Also, as usual, start out intending to stay up later, sleep later, never works that way.
