Family Balcony Cabins

37 Reviews
With room for up to four guests, these Family Balcony Staterooms are great if you want to bring the kids. They feature two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed and additional bedding to accommodate two more, in addition to the separate bathroom with shower and private balcony for the whole gang to enjoy the view.

Disappointed with NCL. By: ksobot23
Cabin was comfortable with lots of storage. The balcony was great and really liked to be able to make a cup of coffee and sit out there in the mornings.

Everything we hoped for. By: raining cats and dogs
Very well laid out for the space available. PLENTY of storage space even with 3 adults in the cabin. Our cabin steward was excellent, a tribute to NCL.

Second Epic Cruise By: Traveler4k
Not a good location as it is in the aft and it is "indented." I would much rather have a clear view of the ocean and not look down and see other people on their balconies.

Not comfortable. Frosted plastic doors for toilet and shower, you can be seen. Washing basin in the bedroom so if you wash your hands late at night, you wake the others up.

Epic by name and by deed By: JohnShashi
Interesting room size. As you enter the balcony staterooms you see the shower room on your left and toilet on your right. The bed is king size and there is great storage space. The balcony is a good size. I heard some people complain about the size of the rooms, but for a 7 day cruise, I had no problem with the cabin

Great stateroom - storage hard to find (behind sofa back, and under sofa) but once found it was great! Balcony very nice and we had adjoining cabins with friends so we had the steward open the divider so we could share the balconies. Best shower I've had in a ship cabin.

Epic Disappointment By: Michaelb821
Nice cabin design, but a bit small. Would have rather had some of the extra room from the large covered balcony. Tall patio doors nice touch. Was able to store luggage outside on balcony as it was completely secured and covered and kept the room uncluttered.

When booking, pay close attention to where you will be staying and inquire about this in advance. For example, we would advise you do not stay in a stateroom that is under a restaurant, over a nightclub, near the children's club (Kid's Crew) or under the pool deck - unless you like A LOT OF NOISE. We were on the 8th deck, opted for a Family Balcony room and for the 3 of us, it worked out very well. It was quiet and comfy. Decoration is modern, with curvy lines to help you pass one another on the way to the balcony or the shower (opposite ends of the room). The bed is somewhat of a short bed. If you are 6' tall or more, you will notice this. The toilet (loudest flusher I have ever heard in my life) is separated from the shower which is helpful. The sink is across from the toilet which is somewhat strange and is also at the end of the bed. Surprisingly, a lot of storage in the room (under the bed, behind the pull out couch, over head, etc). There is a mini bar in the room with mini bar prices and for some reason, the mini bar was not replenished during the week. The room was kept very clean each and every day. Balcony was lovely. Seats were adequate, not great.

Tiny family balcony cabin, with half of the space taken up by a settee and an Open-plan loo: shower, toilet and wash basin positioned so that one walks into the loo first on entering the cabin. The announcements over the ships Tannoy start off early in the morning and do disturb the peace of those wanting a lie in.

Cabin 12035
Feb 2011
12035. Excellent view, very happy with the balconey. We liked the location as it was toward the front of the ship where most of the attractions we used were. If you tend toward using the adult pool area and teen center choose a cabin at the back of the ship. We heard no noises coming from anywhere that you wouldn't hear in any other room. Never heard people in the hallway or heard any crew facilities around us. We were very happy with our cabin. But keep in mind you will not be doing any waltzing in these rooms, they are tight. Aside from that, they fill the bill.

Freestyle-more like By: mommyjill
tiny everything, but great storage space-couldn't figure out who would need so much storage!!! we needed room to breathe, a bed where our feet didn't stick out....worst cramped space ever! too small in order to cram more people on the boat and bilk them for ever nickle and dime they have!!!

The balcony cabin is long and narrow. The curved walls were interesting. In spite of the bad reviews, we had no problems with the sink, toilet and shower locations. There is a lot of storage space. The TV and telephone were excellent. The bed is very short, but it wasn't a real issue. We always have slept well on cruises.

Our cabin was in a quiet and convenient location I would try to avoid Deck 14 between Recess and Fitness suite.

The Epic is amazing By: cornbeltgirl
I thought the room was more than adequate. I don't have anything to compare it to. Rounded bed, which our feet did hang off, but I didn't put much thought into it. Shower and bathroom area are big enough. I am a large woman and felt like there was plenty of room in these areas. Tons and tons of storage, we didn't even use it all. Two huge closets. Three large drawers. Two storage cabinets under counter. Our room had bunk beds for the kids. One in ceiling and the other the couch. All fit just fine, absolutely no complaints.
