Very Noisy Aft Balocny Cabin on 15th Deck.

Sail Date: January 30, 2016

Reviewed: 9 months ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

To get the best cruise experience, we upgraded to the more expensive AFT Balcony Cabin on the 15th Deck . To our surprize, the noise from the Cafe directly above was significant. The cause is a design flaw itself.  Most of the Cafe has carpet, but directly above this room there was no carpet so every movement of the heavy Chairs would carry directly below.  To the credit of NCL, once we brought this to their attention, they corrected it within 2 days by moving us to a lower like-cabin--I applaud NCL for their effort, but it does not replace the 2 days we ensured.

There was no mention of this when we purchased the trips and it obviously should have been disclosed. We would not have purchased this cabin if it was.

Tip

The debarkation on a large ship can take some time. Either get up VERY early to disembark on our own, or enjoy the Ship and get off last.
