1 bath same layout as an AF mini. The AA has 1.5 baths. AB 2 full baths.

The perks are what make the AE and the aft view.

All the same perks as any penthouse.

VIP embarkation and disembarkation
VIP Tender Tickets
VIP dinner reservations
VIP cocktail party
Free breakfastand lunch at Cagney's ( outstanding)

Butler service - In suite dining with food from any restaurant onboard.

Consierge - dinner reservations, shore excursions, etc

Espresso machine in suite

The list goes on and on - you will be spoiled.

Default Thanks

Thanks for your reply but let me tell you trying to get stateroom info. is confusing.The layouts on NCl website show all penthouses w/ 1 1/2 baths, you tell me AB has 2 full (which would be ideal for the 4 of us) and I called NCL directly & they are telling me only 1 bath in AB?
Has anyone actually stayed in a penthouse on the Dawn & give me first hand knowledge? I would really appreciate it.
Thanks in advance

What ship are you talking about ? That would help ?

I have been in every penthouse on NCL. If you are talking about NCLA POA the anseres may be different.

If you are talking AE on the Star,Dawn,Jewel, Pearl, Gem they only hold 2 passengers with just one queen sized bed and no sleeper sofa

AB has two bedroons two paths and a living room. The master bed/bad is to die for. The second bedroom and bath very basic.

Sorry if I had you confused, I've been tossing around so many options in my head. The ship will be the Dawn. It will be my husband, myself & 2 teengers. Trying to decide if we should get a larger penthouse (AB) or 2 ajoining rooms.
If we are all going to stay together I would want 2 baths.
I called NCL directly & the guy told me all the penthouses are 1 bath only? I figured he didn't know what he was talking about. Seeing as you have personally stayed in them please give me ALL the info. you have as well as your opinions
Thanks so much

I think the AB penthouse would be perfect. My favorite. Exactly the same layout as the courtyard villas on the newest ships. If the price is close the value is outstanding all the perks listed above and you will have all the privacy of two cabins plus a lving room/dining to enjoy together. Here is the floorplan



Enter in a hallway, second bed and bath to the right, thru another door to living room with master suite separated by a sliding door.

The second bedroom/bath perfect for two teens. Both my adult sons have stayed in the "kids" room.

Thank you sooooo much. I think that is how I'm going to book it. Why the guy from the cruise line told me it had only 1 bath is beyond me!!!!

If you are planning to book direct with NCL and not a TA I have a personel cruise consultant at NCL that knows what he is doing. Far better then calling the general reservation number.
