Stay away from cabins 10006 or 10506 on NCL Spirit
Do yourself a favour and stay far, far away from cabins 10006 and 10605 on the NCL Spirit. They have a hideously small floor plan.
10006 is by far the WORST cabin I have ever had to endure on any cruise line or ship. Definitely not enough room for 3 people, barely enough for 2. There is no sofa, there is no desk. Only place to sit in the cabin is on your bed. And there's so little room between the bed and the wall only one person can walk through the tiny cabin at a time. There was no more than 6 inches between my bed and the balcony door. You have to warn the other person when you exit the bathroom because of lack of space. Getting ready for the day or dinner was a nightmare.
I believe NCL is engaging in deceptive, misleading and erroneous advertising in its own description of balcony cabins. This is how they describe the BC, BD and BX category cabins:
"With room for up to three guests, Norwegian Spirit staterooms have two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed and a pull out sofa to accommodate one more. Along with a sitting area, floor-to-ceiling glass doors and a private balcony with an amazing view."
I took one look at our cabin and tried to get moved. Guest services acknowledged the obvious problem with the cabin and were sympathetic, but could not move us because the cruise was full.
I booked far enough in advance that if there had been truth in advertising about this cabin I never would have chosen it. If a cabin is sold as obstructed view, then that choice is made clear. Similarly Norwegian should make it very clear that 10006 is not like the rest of the BC balcony cabins. They tell me 10506 has the same layout.
Thanks for the heads up, what a horrible surprise for you....I would of hoped your travel agent would have had a clue about that cabin and its size...Just wrong advertising....especially if they are not the same size as the other cabins in that category...shame on them.
