Great location - close to the stairs and elevators. Not too far to go up and down. Bed was closer to the door than the balcony.

We were on deck 9 Forward (9001, the most forward room on port side) with an extra large balcony(about 110sf), thank goodness, at least half the size of our state room. This balcony is closed in more than most but had plenty of room for the 2 chairs, small table and a lounge chair. We didn’t care much for the room design which made it difficult for two people to move around at the same time. It took some getting use to. The bathroom arrangement was unusual but had some positive aspects. Our room was in a very quite location and we spent more time than normal in the room to get away from the crowds and other people's kids and our Stewardess did a good job servicing our room.

Not So Epic by Bankergrl

We were in cabin 9056. For a balcony room it seemed very small. Two people could barely pass by each other. The carpet in our stateroom needed to be replaced. Like most people have said the bathroom situation is very weird, but we managed through that. Our room said there could be up to 3 people, there is no way an adult could have slept on the couch that was in our room and if it wasn't just me and my husband it would of been very awkward trying to get ready and change clothes.

We booked with a balcony guarantee, and got a great room on the tenth floor. As with other reviews of the Epic, the cabin is tight and the bathroom situation a bit awkward, but we made do with it. The balcony itself was a nice size. There was plenty of storage with all the various cubby holes around the room. Our room steward Mark was really a great help!

We didn't have the same problems that other posters have spoken of. Yes, the sink was small. Yes, it wasn't in a room with the toilet. But you're on vacation. If the location of your sink is going to crush your view of the stateroom, then look at something else for pity's sake. We never had a problem with water getting places it shouldn't have. Even if you did, there's a whole mess of towels right next to it.

Balcony was amazing. For this particular itinerary, having the room on the right side of the ship was phenomenal. Got to see the best of the sunrises and sunsets.

Not impressed! by beachbumjan

This is the last cabin on the starboard side by the handicap entrance to the Italian restaurant. It was quiet and although the kids area is on the same floor, we never heard a thing! The cabin itself is fine - except for the awful lighting throughout - but we didn't like the balcony. It has a solid bottom, so you couldn't sit and look out at the water or the port - you had to stand up. Our steward (Eduard) was great - always smiling, always pleasant and unobtrusive.

Great design, modern with a good use of the very small space. Prepare to scoot sideways in your room. Great size balcony!  Read entire member review.
