Experiences on a mega ship! By: sandralee01
Although unusual I liked the curvy design. There was tons of storage far exceeding any other ship I have been on. The beds were short as I am only 5 ft. and my feet hungover the end. The separate toilet and shower works. The balcony is larger than other ships. What I did like is the fridge in the room and the coffee maker, without an extra charge.

Cabin 8050
Apr 2017
We had MX minisuite 8050. The 'mini' is correct. The term 'suite' is not. This room was a tiny, claustrophobic tunnel. A third smaller than ordinary balcony staterooms we had on other ships. You can only squeeze by the bed, because they made it shorter than standard. I am 1.86m and my feet were hanging over by a good margin. The shower cubicle is great, but the separate toilet cubicle is smaller and narrower than that on a budget airliner. I am not sure how some of our more 'stately' fellow passengers got their back sides through the toilet door and on that seat. Consequently, the washing basin did not fit into the toilet, so they bolted it right next to the bed. Bad idea. Very bad idea. The balcony is of a decent size, but the very basic chairs do not invite to spend time there. There are no tables in the cabin. None. No idea how to do in-room dining. On the floor? NCL, if you are listening, here is an easy fix: Two reclining loungers and a decent table for that balcony. There is plenty space.

Norwegian Epic cruise By: debbscruiser
We had a mini suite with balcony. It was very nice. There was a lot of storage space which surprised us. There was actually three closet spaces to hang your clothes with lots of hangers already in the room. We had our own hangers but didn't have to use them. The walls are curved so it appears that the room is much bigger but its actually longer. The bathroom set up did not bother us. If one had to use the bathroom we just pulled the curtain shut. The balcony was quite large and deep and very comfortable.

Cons: Mini suite is barely bigger than regular cabin. Wave design makes much use impractical. Kidney shaped mattress makes bed smaller than queen size. Feet hung over edge. Sink next to bed is annoying. Small balcony. Mini suite not considered a suite.....in any way, or for any suite benefits. Open cabinets danger to heads. Lack of electrical outlets, and lighting system annoying. Pros: Good storage space.....volume wise. Shower big enough for two people.....not that I took advantage.

For a mini suite, the square footage was smaller than on other cruise lines, but there was excellent storage space. The shower was larger than most, and lighting was adequate.

Short but Sweet By: Jeanadcock
Not sure if category right but booked guarantee mini suite and got tub upgrade. Cruised Epic before and rooms are tight, but lots of storage. No place for room service tray but on love seat. Counter too narrow and no table in mini suite. Still a good value to me. But only if 2 in the room.

The Epic was fun but not what I would expect with the multitude of extra costs at every turn taking it down a notch in my opinion from the quaintness of the smaller (perhaps older) ships.

I honestly couldn't tell you what made this "bigger" than a regular balcony. We were on the 8th floor by the elevators. We booked it because it was $20 per person more than the balcony when we booked. I wouldn't pay a lot more for it. You don't get much.

Aft facing balcony Deck 9. Very small cabin for the price but has great views and is quiet because it is at the aft end of the ship so there is little traffic outside in the hallway.

Cabin 8049 is in a perfect location. Great size and very quiet. Amazing view of the top of a lifeboat.

The Epic was an epic disappointment! By: Phantom Droppings
I hated the layout where you enter the cabin thru the bathroom space. NO privacy at all! Room too narrow making it impossible to get around bed if someone was coming the other way. Bed was shorter than standard, which leaves your feet hanging over edge. Couch seemed pointless for anything other than putting on your shoes. I have been on other cruise ships that actually had a chair and table across from the couch to create a place to sit and enjoy the cabin. We had to either sit on the bed or side by side on the couch starring at the storage space. Cabin was beautiful at first sight then totally inconvenient, lacking bathroom privacy with the sink out in the middle of the cabin! I've had inside cabins on other ship with better floor plans. On the up side. I did like the balcony, about all that I can say good about the cabin!
