Norwegian Joy cabins review

On the Breakaway-Plus class NCL Joy ship:

  • The total number of The Haven suites is almost doubled in comparison to the Breakaway-class ships – 95 Suite accommodations, including 2 more Owner’s Suites (each with 2 balconies and floor-ceiling windows).
  • The Haven Spa suites’ location is close to the Thermal Suite (complimentary) and the Fitness Center.
  • The ship has no Studio decks (2-deck complex of single-occupancy cabins for solo travelers, keycard access only) with its own exclusive Studio Lounge & Bar (accessible by Studio cabins passengers only). Instead, NCL Joy has "Family Interior Suites" (positioned in clusters forward on decks 10, 11, 12). This is a new category Family Suites, each with 2 bedrooms and virtual balconies.
  • The Haven Suite can be connected with an adjacent balcony cabin. There are a total of 308 Mini-Suites, 1088 Balcony and 374 Inside staterooms. NCL Joy also has more connecting cabins (in all categories).

Passengers exempted from the new (uncommon for the industry) room service fee are only the occupants of “The Haven” suites. Still, as an exception, all passengers can order (for free) their room-service morning coffee and Continental Breakfast. After implementing the new service charge, NCL upgraded the room service menu, adding more hot food items for Breakfast and a wider food & drinks selection (available for ordering 24 hours a day).

Among the NCL Joy’s cabins related news are:

  • New cabin category will be introduced – these are the NCL’s first Concierge-grade rooms.

Replacing the Studios (single cabins) there will be new Interior Suite category cabins each with 2 bedrooms and a virtual balcony (live outside views). Dedicated concierges will make onboard arrangements (entertainment, dining, spa, special events, private parties, etc). There will be also an exclusive-access Concierge Lounge with its own bar.
