If you have a look at this photo of the Breakaway you can see the mini suite with large balcony M6 on deck 8 (at the bottom - front) then the large balcony B6 cabins on deck 9 (directly above those M6 balconies) then the smaller standard balconies above those. A really good photo for comparing balcony sizes.Great photo - thanks for posting. Now I know exactly where 8732 is and what it looks like. We will be 2 down from the guy in the blue shirt for the 12/29 sailing and loving every extra inch of that large balcony.
Just back from Breakaway. We had a BA toward the front and those minisuites and even the other deck above them (9?) had huge balconies. Wished I had paid more attention when I booked and gotten the deck 9 balcony cabin instead!
I agree it looks silly with the tiny furniture. They could've sprung for loungers on those larger balconies for sure!
I have to say the balcony cabin's balcony wasn't as small as I thought it was going to be. We fit on it just fine. Just wish one of the chairs had a reclinable back.
Mizlorinj- I am considering those larger B6's on deck 9..also the Mini suites forward deck 8 with the huge balconies...did you feel alot of movement up there, and what cabin# were you in? Also, did it look like those cabins on decks 8 & 9 were pretty worthwhile if you want a decent balcony size? Thanks!Yes you will feel more motion farther forward. I don't mind that though, and we only felt motion after we left Bermuda due to the swells.
Can anyone tell me what the mini suite on the 12th deck M2 looks like? I'd love to see photo's, we just got upgraded from 10th floor balcony to this and I'm super excited.How was the M2 balcony? Was it standard or slightly bigger?
I am a balcony gal...it is my respite.This is my first planning of a NCL, prior have been sailing Carnival....any insight into if mini suite on breakway 8th deck has a private full balcony? Talks with NCL staff keft me confused.....said not private.What cabin category? If It's M6 I am pretty sure it's private.
What cabin category? If It's M6 I am pretty sure it's private.Only about a the rear third of it is "private". The rest of it can be seen from anyone forward on that side of the ship.
Only about a the rear third of it is "private". The rest of it can be seen from anyone forward on that side of the ship.This is correct. However, Breakway is really tall. Someone from the upper decks would almost have to look straight down over their balcony to see you sitting on a M6 or B6 balcony. Didn't bother us at all.
