Norwegian Epic Aft-Facing Balcony Staterooms feature floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open to a private balcony. With room for up to three they include a separate bathroom with shower, two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed, a sitting area and additional bedding to accommodate one more. These Balcony Staterooms are aft-facing, so the view from your balcony is amazing.
The view from our aft facing balcony cabin was spectacular! We had an 180 degree view of the ocean and all ports of call. We will always book an aft cabin for any future cruises.
Mark, our personal cabin steward always made sure that we had everything we needed. Read entire member review >>
Clean Cabin and spacious for 2. Great storage place and our stewart Gilbert was prompt and always available. The highlight was the balcony. Breathtaking view of the ports leaving every time. Could have spent hours and hours together over there. Was extermely calming and romantic. Overall a big thumbs up! Read entire member review >>
The stateroom worked fine for us. I love the balcony. The furniture and carpet were a little worn out but not bad. Despite the large ship, it is quiet most of the time. The separate bathroom and shower was not a problem. The sink is in the middle of the room and not in a very convenient location.
The bed was OK but not very comfortable. Read entire member review >>
This cabin was amazing. It is an aft-balcony handicapped cabin. This provided us with a wider cabin, a wider balcony (we had two chaises, two chairs and a small table out there), a boat load (pun kind of intended) of storage space (even our big suitcases fit under the bed). The bathroom unlike regular state rooms has the shower and toilet in the same "room" and the sink in the cabin area.
The only issue that I can think off was that since the shower and toilet were on the same level, the water from the shower would move over to the drain near the toilet. It make the entire space wet. It would dry quickly if we left the door open after a shower.
The bed was very comfy and I didn't seem to find the length an issue as other cruises had mentioned about bed length in the standard cabins.
One thing to mention is that there was no sofa here. Instead a long desk with a chair and another chair that never really seemed to find it's place in the cabin. If you are one who enjoys sitting on a sofa in a cabin as opposed to on the balcony, that would be the only reason why I would say this room is not for your.. Read entire member review >>
The stateroom was fine for us. The strange lay out wasn’t a problem for us as a couple. Only the bed wasn’t long enough for my 6.3feet tall husband. Did he sleep worse because of that? No he didn’t.
There could have been better cleaned, or better maintenance be done, the mirror from the closet was dirty. There was rust at the mirror by the sink and one of the drawers was broken.
And every night we heard the sliding door from the toilet that made noises... Read entire member review >>
The view is just as good even if the balcony is smaller than what you'd normally expect. Small, but roomy enough for 7 days or less. We did appreciate the extra storage areas once we discovered all of them. If there's no smoking allowed in staterooms or on balconies than please enforce it, especially after its been reported.

Cabin steward friendly & experienced, but room on small side, modern looking but functionallly not useful. Bed too short for two adults, storage not easy to use & bathroom facilities extremly difficult for senor's to use, especially at night in the dark. Rear facing cabin was great experience, but noisy with reading or napping difficult while on balconey. At 1,000+ feet long it is a long walk to everywhere for everything. Modern design of facilities NOT an asset. A good example of looking good, but not being useful. Read entire member review >>
We had a nice Aft Balcony room, there was a lot of storage (we were able to completely unpack suitcases and store them and still had lots of room). The layout was a bit odd, but it didn't bother us. I think I would have preferred a room with the bed closer to the balcony. I liked that the shower and toilet were separated. The sink in the living area was not a problem. The glass walls might have been more bothersome if I wasn't traveling with my husband. Read entire member review >>
Not a fan of the wave. Would have been O.K., JUST O.K., if it was just my wife & I, but we had my sister-in-law along & the cabin is not suitable for 3. DO NOT LIKE THE NOISY TOILET. Do not like the glass door. Do Not Like NO insulation between the toilet & the cabin. Can even hear how much paper is coming off the roll.
This cabin is small. Lots of storage, electrical, mirrors. Poor lighting. Just O.K. Balcony.
When the ship is idling, at anchor, as in Great Stirrup Cay, it is noisy with the thrusters vibrating...& for some reason I did not expect to feel waves hitting a ship of this size...but you do!
Housekeeping staff were excellent, always above & beyond...& always smiling & cheerful. Read entire member review >>
We did not like the layout but loved the aft balcony. The bathroom layout was not comfortable for us as the shower water poured over to the outside floor. Uncomfortable seating on curved couch...which took up much cabin space. The curved walls made everything seem tight...not spacious for a balcony cabin. Plenty of storage space. Horrible lighting. Would never want to be in an inside cabin on the Epic. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was bright and airy with plenty of cupboard/ wardrobe space. The TV is a great way to book shows, restaurants and keep an your onboard account
Our steward introduced himself straight away was was always on hand
The simple signage outside the cabin could easily be change if you wanted not to be disturbed
Noticeable noise from bow thrusters when docking but a very peaceful part of ship as nobody walking past en route to their cabins
Be warned..... mini bar is not included in Ultimate Drinks Package and pretty pricey Read entire member review >>
Great cabin, although furniture veneer was broken at ground level. Shower (nice and big) and w/c was no problem for us and there is a dividing curtain between this area and rest of cabin if you need it. Plenty of storage space. Did not like small sink as forever mopping up water after shaving or washing, but not a deal breaker. Some vibration and noise when docking but nothing to complain about. Nice quiet area and no outside noise at night. Layout not quite right as we never used the sofa. Nice to have the bed near the balcony. Read entire member review >>
There cannot be a better Cabin than this one or same ones in floors below or above. The View, the tranquility, the relaxation, all come together. It is a Wheel Chair assist cabin, I went with Dad, we needed more space, if you can book this one, Pls do it, U will never regret it.
The sound each morning when docking made the cruise experience even better. Listening to the roar of those massive engines below, just incredible, no rocking no nothing. Just smooth. We had smooth sailing all the way from the beginning. Read entire member review >>
Aft facing balcony with a slightly larger balcony . A lovely quiet cabin with not much passing traffic and the entrance to the outside secret staircase right next door.Our cabin assistant Pax was great.We asked for an iron and an ironing board and ten minutes later they were delivered. A great service we never had available on other cruises we have been on.. Read entire member review >>
Spacious cabin with masses of storage space. Lots of wardrobe space and three big deep drawers. Plenty of room under the bed to store empty suitcases. Bed was really comfortable and views from the balcony spectacular. Yes, there is some vibration when docking or leaving port because you are at the back but I can't say it bothered us at all. The shower and toilet doors may be opaque but that didn't bother us and there is a curtain if seeing a body outline bothers you! However, the plus side is that the shower and toilet compartments are spacious. We actually loved the curved design. We did take an american multi-point extension with us and this was a really good tip for charging multiple devices (kindle, phone, tablet etc). There's also a european plug point so you could take a european multi-plug as well / instead. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was nice enough although the glass shower and commode would be a problem for people traveling as friends. Because of trying to create atmosphere the bed was curved causing it to be way to short. I'm 6'2" and if I laid normally on the bed my legs hung over from shin down. Read entire member review >>
Floor plan is mind-boggling. Bed in the middle of the room made for very little space to maneuver, draw curtain to separate the room was very cumbersome and made no sense, couch faced closets, we had to get in bed to watch television, bathroom defies logic; couldn't reach towels from shower and the separate commode with frosted glass offered NO privacy. We really splurged to enjoy and aft balcony cabin. What a mistake. Room actually vibrated whenever the engines changed speed causing the drawers to slide open and shut. We had to move luggage in front of drawers to keep them shut during the night. Read entire member review >>
We got a handicapped aft balcony which was a dream come true for someone with a broken ankle. It was large. The bathroom was easy to access with a fold down seat in the shower. There was a small ramp to the balcony too. The motorized scooter chair easily fit and could charge. The bed was great and the sheets soft. After spending 8 weeks in bed at home, getting out... really out, and having such a great cabin, was greatly appreciated. Read entire member review >>
Looked big on paper but in reality one of the smallest cabins I have had. The bathroom / shower set up is very strange and I did not like it. They seem to have learned from this as the NCL Getaway has reverted to a more traditional layout.
Being an Aft balcony cabin gave us fantastic views so that element is highly recommended. Read entire member review >>
Stateroom - We were in 10318, an aft balcony. It was nice looking but the smallest stateroom we have ever had. Next time we will spend the extra money to get a bigger room. Pros - quiet with no foot traffic. As we made the very long walk down the corridors, we noticed a significant difference in the noise levels. Little movement except when pulling into port and during high sea weather. Cons - Half of the days we had high seas and for some reason, the waves would slam against the back of the ship causing the ship to jerk with a loud banging sound. Also, several days we could smell cigarette smoke on our balcony. It is possible someone was smoking on their balcony or on the staircase on the back corner of the ship. Read entire member review >>
The rooms have some clever enhancements compared to other ships, including:
-Well designed notification signs outside the door-clean for: room/make up room/welcome/turn down bed;
-A clothes hamper under sink and lots of storage in the room;
-The sink in bedroom, providing better access
We have been disappointed by our cabin stewards on recent cruises, but our cabin steward Yennie was very good and personable; she even knew our names before we met her.
If you like to use the stairs, cabins on deck 11 are half way between action decks of 7 and 15.
Things to consider on this ship which are not ideal:
-The toilet and shower offer little privacy, so know cabin mates well!
-Select room with bed close to the deck as the entrance too cabin is tight when the beds are close to the door.
-The is not much to watch on TV
-Select a room with no door adjoining the next room if you want more storage and more closet space
-Nice large balcony on aft balcony cabins, but lots of water noise and shaking from propellers. Read entire member review >>
Wasted money. I love walkin thru my bathroom to enter to cabin. The curved surfaces are neat but total unfunctional. The lighting is horrible, the only place to read is lying down in bed. The couch is uncomfotable, you can't see anytrhing from it. The curves have you facing the closet. The cabin Stewart eas terriffic. Read entire member review >>
Terrible room configuration. Very limited space to move about. I HATED the shower and toilet closets. The designer should be taken out and flogged. The sink is in living area is ridiculous and not a pleasant sight. The bed is uneven and uncomfortable. The carpet was stained and in need of repair. The only redeeming factor is the balcony Read entire member review >>
This is a handicap-accessible room, which is very large. The balcony is much larger than some we have had on other Norwegian ships lately. The bathroom is accessible, so it is not split like some of the bathrooms on the Epic. The toilet, shower and sink are all in one room. Read entire member review >>
As many other reviews have shared, the shower and toilet are not very private, I traveled alone,so it was OK, but would have been very uncomfortable if I had had a roommate. Also having the sink in the main cabin was kind of weird. With the shape of the room, they have made the bed rounded, so it is very short. Here is my biggest complaint with the cabin, the lighting around the mirrors was horrible! But .....there is a huge amount of storage in these cabins. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was great! The only noise we ever heard was the ocean sounds! The room was well kept, Reggie our cabin steward was great and each night we had a cute towel animal/chocolates waiting for us. He was awesome, attentive and made us feel special! Read entire member review >>
An aft balcony is the best... we will choose an aft balcony cabin any day. We enjoyed the use of the two reclining loungers and the quite experience of being at the back of the ship with passenger cabins both above and below us. Good cabin! Read entire member review >>
Most balcony rooms have the curvy shape I guess is practical in some way that is less than obvious to me. The aft-facing balcony is very private. Hardly any traffic. With the doors closed, you can't hear a sound and on just one or two occasions I could hear music coming from the 15th deck but only on the balcony. The complaints about the bathroom situation I feel are overblown. The shower and toilet areas are good size. The smoked glass is smoked but you can still see what one is doing in there. That is why there is a curtain separating this area from the rest of the room. The sink in the main area we actually found convenient. We had concerns about seasickness hence the aft room. We did notice the front of the ship does rock more. There is some vibration from the engines in the back but just like being in a car. It doesn't go away except at port which might annoy some but personally I like hearing the water and the privacy. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was somewhat quirky as the sink was in the main part of the cabin. A really quite unnecessary quirk in our opinion. Other than that, the cabin was adequate, the air conditioning was good, and it was serviced well. A decent balcony too. Being aft facing it was really very quiet as there was little passing "traffic". Read entire member review >>
Cabin: I was in cabin 8211 an Aft – Balcony. The look of the room is beautiful. The wood and curve design. The narrow passage through the cabin is even forgivable. The major problem that I have is the toilet setup. You have a glass sliding door similar to an enclosure on a bath tub at home but it is from floor to ceiling. The toilet is positioned right next to the bed with a curtain that blocks off the toilet and shower on the opposite side of the room, both at the entrance to the cabin. Ok, all the sounds and smells that occur in the toilet will be in the entire room. If you are a big person, as I am, closing the door will result in very tight quarters.The sink is in front of the bed and water splatters all around it when you wash. The shower is not so bed, larger than many that I have sailed with including my recent Sun voyage. My shower head was cracked resulting in water spraying from the sides of the head, it just meant keeping the sliding door only open enough for me to stick my arm in to test the water before getting inside.I found my coffee pot with coffee still in it from the previous guest. I had to ask my Steward to clean or replace the coffee pot (he rinsed it and put it back- it still had water droplets on it and didn’t look clean – I never used it.) and to clean the toilet as there was a smell of dried urine. There was some bird poop on the balcony railing but I just cleaned it off, I can’t fault the steward because that could have happened while the ship was in port.There is a lot of storage in the cabin. Two large closets, three very large drawers below the closet (I only used one drawer and still had plenty of space). There is storage above that couch and below the sink (not sure what you would put in the one below the sink). I brought a nightlight as I usually stay in inside cabins but the light from the phone illuminates the room enough that you really don’t need it. I placed my large suitcase under the bed.I use a CPAP machine and because of the shelf design on the bed I had to improvise its location. I pulled the stool from the counter next to the bed, placed the luggage protect between the top of the stool and the machine. I brought a long extension cord and surge protector but there is such a small distance between the counter and the bed that I didn’t need the extension cord, I just plugged right into the surge protector on the counter. The bed was two twins put together for a queen sized. It was uncomfortable to lay in the center of the beds because the crack between the two mattresses was very noticeable. I thought that cruise lines put a cover over the cracks for comfort. I never noticed that on any other cruise where the beds were put together including previous NCL cruises. There is a safe above the counter with more storage around it. To set the code press reset and enter a four digit code then press lock. To open, re-enter the code. Above the sink is a place for your toiletries (behind the mirror) and a plug for a shaver. There is a hair dryer next to the stool at the counter. A mirror is across the counter.

Bed was by door, sofa by balcony. Room steward was Ricardo. We had three adults in the room and it worked fine for us even though the space was small. Epic has so many storage spaces that we were able to easily able to keep all our misc junk/shoes stored out of sight. My dad wakes up multiple times during the night to use the bathroom, so we wanted the bed to be closer to the bathroom to make life easier for him.Ricardo brought us a third chair for the balcony. My dad found that the distance to the aft elevators was close enough for him (12 -15 rooms away) that his knees didn't bother him. Read entire member review >>
This cabin is located in the aft, starboard corner. Our cabin had one light over the couch that we could never get to come on. The only real usable outlet is under the desk. We brought an extension cord which was necessary, but we found it unplugged every day after the cabin was made up. The outlet itself was pulled out of its housing and hanging by wires...which we know our cabin steward had to have seen since she unplugged our extension cord daily. One would have thought this safety item would be tended to. The in cabin mini fridge was a nice perk but the temp inside was barely cold and we didn't see any way to adjust it. The lighting above the sink and the make up mirrors is terrible! I had a hell of a time putting on make up as you cannot really see what you're doing. There is only about 18 inches of space between the sink and the bed. We always had to plan who was going to be on which side of the cabin as you had to coordinate walking around the bed. In this cabin, the bed is next to the toilet. Would have preferred the opposite where the bed is next to the balcony. Since the cabins are all in a wave pattern, the cabin directly next to ours (10319) had the preferred arrangement. Our friends were staying in that cabin so we were able to see it.This cabin (in the corner next to the secret stairwell) has a slightly larger balcony than the other aft cabins. The partition part that swung open between our cabin and 10319 where our friends were staying was only about 1/3 of the size of the partition itself. Its important to note that not all partition openings are equal! The partition between 10319 and 10321 was very small (about a foot wide) and was situated in the rear of the balcony, against the cabin - as opposed to in the front/water side. The partition was locked but based on CC comments, we brought the perfect tool to open it - the handle side of a small pair of nail clippers. Our steward never locked it during the week which we partially expected to have happen since NCL frowns on them being open.We didn't particularly mind the toilet/sink/shower configuration but it is different and may be uncomfortable for those who are more modest. The sink is quite small and shallow so some may have difficulty shaving. We did like the glass shower doors which eliminated the dreaded water on the floor outside the shower curtain. There is an in cabin small coffee maker with cream and sugar. The shower has wall mounted shampoo and soap only. There are no complimentary toiletries.The storage in this cabin is insane. Storage and hidden compartments everywhere. Too bad they couldn't have taken some of this space and turned it into usable cabin space.This will be our first and our last aft cabin. While we love the quiet in the hallway as there is no traffic going by, we really enjoy sitting on the balcony while sailing. The noise from the water spray is so loud that it made it quite difficult to talk or listen to our music at any level other than LOUD. There is also a bit of a rumble when coming into or leaving port. It's not terrible, just something to point out. Read entire member review >>
Extra large cabin similar to suite as it's a handicapped cabin. The shower has a bench seat and safety bars. Loud engine noise when sailing. The whole cabin shudders when entering the port. Read entire member review >>
Our room service staff was so nice, he learned our names from the day we arrived and greeted us everyday and made sure everything was always a-ok. All the staff on board were very nice and offered exceptionnal Customer service, they all seemed to go the extra mile for us. Thank you for an amazing stay! Read entire member review >>
Room was nice with a ton of storage.
Beds were terribly hard and uncomfortable. You either lie on your back or front or get bruises on your hip bones.. reminded me of camping in a tent.
Balcony was really good but because we were at the back of the ship the engines and oceans were really loud - couldn't really talk to each other. Regardless of the noise of the engines we spent a lot of time on the balcony because the ship was so crowded. Read entire member review >>
Great cabin and large balcony, but having the bed near the balcony is definitely better. Location on deck 9 convenient to elevators and walking all around the ship. Elevators were not crowded as some have experienced. Read entire member review >>
We had an aft-facing balcony, room 8213, and it was super small. I mean tight. And the shower and head were at the end of the room where the door was. So if the housekeeper or room service knocked when the other person was taking a shower or using the bathroom, you could see their sillouette. The head had a frosted glass door and it was a bit uncomfortable if you had to go when the other person was sleeping because you can hear everything. I was with my husband, but have a little bit of modesty and would rather have privacy while doing my business. I can't imagine sharing a room like this with someone you are not intimately familiar with. There was a lot of hidden storage, which was cool, but I kept forgetting where I put stuff. The light switches were in odd places and there was only one outlet for electronics. Hair dryer was good, I am very picky about my hair and was pleased that I had not packed a dryer and there was a good and strong dryer in the room. No iron or steamer, expensive to send clothes to be pressed. 2 beach towels that you got charge $25 each if they were missing from your room at the end of the trip. I put one in the hamper one night and they didn't replace it so I had to ask the housekeeper to replace it.
Our housekeeper Roberto was phenomenal. He was super accomodating and greeted us every morning with a smile and well wishes, even remembering our names!
I had read that it was noisy on the 8th floor, because you were close to all the activities. But it was not, you could only hear the wonderful noise of the water. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 11317: B1 category, aft-facing balcony. Ample storage space on wardrobe closet and drawers; suitcases easily fit under bed for extra storage. Balcony has great views and is covered, which was great for people who like the shade. Very quiet (aside from the sounds of the waves coming out of the back of the boat) -- at least two floors of passenger cabins both above and below this cabin.
We had a great trip in this cabin and would recommend this particular cabin without hesitation. Read entire member review >>
The stateroom was plenty big enough, the shower/toilet configuration was no issue for us, and the aft-facing balcony was perhaps the best choice we made. Views were spectacular coming into and leaving ports of call. The stateroom steward was incredibly helpful and attentive. Read entire member review >>
Lots of storage. Bed is next to entryway which makes for cramped moving around when getting dressed. This configuration works well when you have a sleeping child because they are not disturbed by moving around. Cabin is in the aft and has a great view and large balcony. There will be significant vibration and noise when docking and undocking on port days. Read entire member review >>
13286 - AFT FACING - Great location, awesome view, more than enough storage space and lots of room to move around; excellent balcony; some vibrations - especially when ship turning of docking. Read entire member review >>
10322, Aft-Facing Balcony
NIAGRA FALLS! Incredibly loud prop/wake noise (no, not a waterfall gently trickling, Niagra Falls!). Strong vibration when the ship approaches a port; be prepared to be awoken early on port days as you and everything in the cabin will rattle as the ship is slowed.
The cabin does have a great view, especially when leaving ports. Don't expect a lot of sunshine on the balcony, only in late afternoon (southbound) and early morning (northbound).
Very small/short bed and even shorter sheets. If over 6', you will not fit on the bed.
Tons of storage space for hanging clothes. Super clean and neat.
If looking for tranquility, book a balcony facing either side, not on the back. Read entire member review >>
The cabin itself was too small for comfort. The smallest of any cabin we've experienced on any NCL Ship. The bed was too short. The balcony was OK, about 6'X 9'. Plenty of storage in cabin. Probably the best we've experienced. Read entire member review >>
#11316--aft cabin overlooking stern. Poor layout-supposedly for three persons but two only comfortable because we are good friends. Larger than average balcony. Not a problem for us, but long walk (obviously) from fore of ship.
Sink splashes, shower steps out in back of door, translucent barrier around toilet not suitable for two strangers. Read entire member review >>
We had an aft facing balcony (9297). It was in a wonderful location and offered fantastic views and a fine place to get away from everyone and everything. The closets were plenty big and there was more than enough storage. Read entire member review >>

Port-corner aft-facing balcony. Very noisy with lots of vibration while underway. Hallway outside is quiet since it's the very last cabin. Larger than average balcony. Not reccomended because of the noise and vibration. Read entire member review >>
The toliet situation in the rooms. It is a bit weird and small for a 250lb man. I can see some peoples complaints on it, as if you are going #2, and have people in the room, you are sh** out of luck. Crank the tv and hope no one is close by. Shower is small but was ok. We enjoyed our room, even though it is a bit tight at times. We loved the balcony, adds space to the overall room.

# 11320: Tiny cabin facing toward the rear. The balcony was actually adequately sized, but the furniture consisted of two cheap chairs and the tiniest table imaginable. No sunbed.
In this cabin there is a door on the wall towards the bigger cabin next to it. This door can be detected on the deck plan if you know it beforehand. I didn't find out until I got there. The consequence of this door is the loss of valuable cabinet space. Also, the location of the bed in the middle of the room isn't good.
After having had numerous malfunctions of the safe, I came to the conclusion that this cabin was cursed.
My advice: choose a different cabin or a different cruiseline altogether. Read entire member review >>
