The Owner's Suites with Double Balconies are great for up to four guests. They include a living room, dining room and separate bedroom with king-size bed. Along with a mini-bar, luxury bath with whirlpool tub and an amazing double balcony. Includes butler and concierge service.
Expensive, but worth it. Great layout with plenty of space. LR, DR, separate BR, dressing room, bath & a half and two balconies. Nicely decorated. Butler (Clint) was terrific. It's a 'suite life'. Read entire member review >>
The Suite is great. It was supposed to have refurbished, but clearly that is corporate propaganda. It had new carpet, but the wood, ceiling, plumbing, exterior and interior doors etc. remain from when she was built in 2002. The fare has been jacked up in the last year, and frankly its not worth the $3500 they're asking now.
The positive is the dual balconies. That is a very positive feature allowing you to be outside in any weather. Read entire member review >>
Small and enclosed without a window. Kept immaculate and tidy the entire cruise! I thought they could have designed better space for storage. Not enough space to lay out suitcase except on bed. Limited TV stations, but who sits in their room on a cruise! Read entire member review >>
The owner's suite is fantastic. There is a sitting room, a dining area and a wet bar with a coffee machine. There was a separate bedroom with a king bed. It had a guest bathroom and a full bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub, a shower with six shower heads and a full walk in closet with two safes and a dressing table. We had two balconies. One with two lounges facing forward and another off the sitting room on the side with a table and chairs.
Orlando, our butler, was great. He kept our bar and coffee fully stocked. He brought us a treat each day such as chocolate strawberries or other goodies. If we ate in, he would serve us.
Vilma kept our room up and left us a different towel animal each night. Patrick, our concierge, make sure we received our dinner reservations. Read entire member review >>

Our suite, 9006, Owners Suite with two balconies was beautiful and it provided enough space for three adults. The side balcony had a dining table and four chairs and the front balcony had two padded chaises, a table, and a side chair. This was our second front facing balcony and only at full sail was it unusable due to wind. The rest of the time it was great. Just be aware that there is no privacy due to the Bridge and an upper viewing deck located directly above. My mother slept like a baby on the pull out sofa in the living room. The stateroom had a full bath and a guest bath with a sink and toilet. The main bath had a walk-in shower, Jacuzzi tub, double sinks and plenty of plush towels. Off of the bath is a "strange" little walk in closet with two safes. The closet seems like an after thought and it offers very little storage. NOTE to anyone booking this cabin...there is very little storage space so you have to be creative. We were able to close the doors between the bedroom and living area to give everyone privacy. There was a Lavazza coffee maker in the bar area and we thoroughly enjoyed the coffee on demand. The OS comes with three bottles of alcohol and our butler delivered OJ and Tomato Juice to us daily and he kept the refrigerator stocked with soda's, tonic water, limes and lemons. There were three "older" poor quality televisions and one DVD player. This cabin is not like the OS on the Epic; however, the service more than made up for the lack of technology and WOW.

The owners suite we had (10006) was well maintained , more than we expected, and a bargain. The king size bed is wonderful as well as providing a place underneath for storage of your luggage. The two balconies with different perpectives are a definite plus. The LaVazza machine is a great amenity. One of the unique features of the cabin is the sliding glass doors and curtains between the bedroom and living room. Considering that the living room has the extra lavatory, the opportunity for one occupant to slumber undisturbed while another occupant is active and has access to a balcony and a lavatory, is a great feature.

Beatiful, large suite!
When we opened the cabin door we were all pleasantly surprised! The owner's suite is quite impressive and the Penthouse was quite nice. We must have spent a good half hour just exploring everything in the suite. The suite had lots of beautiful wood paneling. At the entryway was a beautiful, wood paneled half bathroom. Once you walked into the suite you were standing in the living room/dining room area which was good sized. We had two sets of sliding glass doors off the living room that lead out to our side balcony with a table and four chairs. The living room had a sofa, which I have to say is quite hard. There was also a comfortable sitting char, an ottoman and a lounge chair. The TV had a built in CD and DVD player, and we were stocked with a selection of CD's and a book to order DVD's from our butler. The dining alcove had a nice wooden dining table with 4 chairs. We also had a beautiful bar with nice glassware including champagne glasses, wine glasses, martini glasses, high ball and old fashioned glasses and brandy snifters. We were given an alcohol menu to select our three bottles of liquor and our butler, Ravi, asked what types of bottled water and sodas we would like for the week and took our orders for "snacks." At 5:30 each evening Ravi delivered something yummy... cheese and crackers and grapes, pretzels, nuts and dried fruit, chips and salsa, veggies and dip, and chocolate covered strawberries. We also had a nice fruit bowl filled with the items we had requested. The bar area included a mini refrigerator and a very nice espresso/cappuccino maker. A nice bottle of champagne was on ice, waiting for us. Who could eat or drink all this stuff? Not us.
The bed room and master bath was separated from the living room with sliding glass doors and curtains. We had a comfortable King sized bed, a desk with an NCL lap top computer provided and a sitting chair. A TV was built into the wall in front of the bed. Our second deck was off the bed room, on the front of the ship and had two lounge chairs and a small table. It was separated from our friends' deck, but we could see them and talk to them from our deck. This deck not only had a regular door, but what appeared to be a water tight bulkhead door with a wheel you turned to tighten down the hatches. This came in handy when we were moving as it was quite windy and without the down tightened, the air whistled as it came thru the tiny open spaces.
The bathroom and dressing room were incredible. The bathroom was bright and sunny with two windows and blue tile. It included a bath tub with Jacuzzi, a walk in shower and separate water closet and two sinks. The dressing room is all beautiful wood paneling, with two safes, two areas to hang clothes, and lots and lots of drawer and cubby space. It also included a mirror and sitting area for make up, a hair dryer and a pants press.
Our friends were in the connecting Penthouse suite. We had a tiny, private, interior hall connecting our two rooms. Their penthouse was lovely, just smaller, and with a Queen bed and one bathroom. The color scheme was bright and cheerful. They had a small table and chairs and a sitting area with a love seat and a chair. They also had a cappuccino maker. Read entire member review >>
