Cabin 12075
May 2017
The cabin was nicely sized, but the bed was very short (our feet hung over the edge). There are issues with the water temperature controls throughout the ship (multiple cabins and all had scalding water that could not be moderated. The cabin steward was excellent.

Included above: Ours was a mini suite and it was tiny. I cannot imagine what the interior staterooms were like. Whomever designed those rooms should be stripped of whatever title they hold. The bathroom is right in the room with only a smoked glass rounded-shaped slider to put into place to use the toilet and another one to use the shower. They are about the size of the facilities in an RV. There is absolutely no privacy since you can certainly see (and hear) the person inside through the glass and see when they stand, sit or whatever. Ours had a curtain, but other people told me they did not even have that. There is barely room to walk in the cabin....tiny, tiny, tiny.

EPIC By: BstnCruiser
-mini-suite 10091 was a little bigger than the balcony cabin. Rug was worn; mirrors cracked, chipped and broken; balcony railing chipped; vent filled with dust, and bed quite uncomfortable because of sagging/worn-out mattress. Cabin attendant was efficient

If the bathroom setup wasn't so weird, would give the cabin higher marks.

Epic First Cruise By: dubaifoodie1974
Comfortably sleeps 2 adults and 2 children (one bunk bed is stored in the ceiling). The separate toilet, shower and sink can take a bit of issue but the curtain gives you some element of privacy. Lots of storage. Store your suitcases under the bed (lift bed if required)...we fit 3 large suitcase and 2 smaller ones comfortably. We found the cabin location perfect as the kids club, elevators were steps away and the main restaurant (Garden Cafe), pools, water slides etc were on Deck 15 so never had to wait for an elevator

Cabin was clean and spacious. M2 family mini suite. I think the term mini suite is misleading as there are zero suite benefits, I think it should be renamed superior or deluxe balcony cabin to avoid confusion. The fourth bed was always lowered when we went to dinner and raised when at breakfast, never had to ask. Plenty of room to get past the fourth bed even for us larger folk! The kids loved a bed in the sky!

Plenty of room for three - would highly recommend,, amazing storage not even we could fill it all up and we do not pack light, on our last cruise we had a balcony cabin this time the mini suite gave us that little bit more space, this gave everyone in the family that bit more personal space. The European bathroom arrangement was not a problem at all for us, so if a close family do not let it deter you at all from the Epic she will wow you in so many other ways.

Ten Fabulous Days By: Floydfan59
Plenty of storage space and nice comfortable bed if a little too small for my height. The main talking point in our group was the shower and toilet arrangement. Both cubicles had a frosted glass partition that gave an obscured view of the person inside. I think it's fair to say that there was a unanimous dislike of this by the 7 ladies in our party with the guys not really bothered about it. What this says about the way men and women think is not something that I'm going to get into in this review. The balcony was nice but as we had a four berth room It would have been good to have had 4 chairs on the balcony as well. The cabin was clean and well maintained and we received excellent service from Norman our cabin steward.

Housekeeping services were excellent. Room was too small and I am still not exactly clear what was "extra" in my upgraded cabin - it certainly wasn't square footage!. The position of the wash basin (right next to one of the beds) is inconvenient.

EPICally different By: hewent
the rooms are European styled and space is very limited. Dislike the fact that the toilet is part of the main space.

The cabin was OK but I wouldn't say I noticed a big difference between the mini-suite and the balcony room that my parents had. It was certainly better than the inside cabins that I've stayed in previously!

Cabin 13214
Jan 2015
The room was very much as expected. It was a long narrow passage from the hallway to the balcony, but the size only ever annoyed us a bit when preparing to go out. If you are on good terms with your traveling companions it should not be an issue to say "excuse me, can I squeeze by?" once or twice per day. The bathroom setup is unique as we all know, but my family's bodily functions aren't anything new to me, so I wasn't bothered. The huge shower was nice. There was plenty of storage as has been commented on endlessly, but I'll confirm it. The only real issue we had was that the hair dryer almost set the room on fire and then ceased to work.The drop down bunk from the ceiling worked well and the view from the balcony was nice and unobstructed by the life boats since we were high enough. This room is very convenient to the stairs and elevators without any of the noise that can accompany them. It is also just one floor below the spa and fitness center which was perfect for us. Two decks up from here was the aft bar which made for a quick place to run and get drinks from your room. I think we hit the jackpot with this room overall and we would stay in something like it again.

Great Ports, Ship was Fair By: pinkylee315
The suite is a pain, only one person can get through at a time. Lots of storage and a great view of the top of the little boats that take you back and forth since it is directly under your balcony. :-( Don't get on this floor if you were planning on taking pictures out of your balcony.

Wonderful Cruise! By: ohionana26
Cabin 13034 Great room! Really good location..very near the elevator (but never heard them) and steps (just two flights up to pool bdeck and food). Lots of room. With four in a cabin, I was worried, but there was more than enough room for all of our stuff (we literally had empty cabinets left over) and all four suitcases and backpacks fit under the beds. The upper bed pulled down from the ceiling, but there was plenty of room to get past it and into closets and out to the balcony. The grand daughter who slept in it said it was very comfortable. We personally liked the separate shower/toilet/sink area..made it easier for us all to get ready at the same time.

13061 had easy access to pool area and main buffet (just two floors up) and also the kids club (1 floor up). The cabin has plenty of storage compartments. Great shower. The balcony is a nice size with 3 chairs. Three decent size closets for hanging. Only two electric outlets to charge things.

The Epic Didn't Disappoint! By: lovethe24car
Apparently, some cabins on deck 14 vibrate; some don't. I would book on a lower deck, just in case.
