Norwegian Epic Balcony Staterooms have room for up to three guests and feature floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open to a private balcony with an incredible view. 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.
Poor - service calls with waits twice for safe second time almost an hour of our day. Air conditioner failed .and required service.Our sink leaked and yet another service call. all these issues detracted from our vacation time and experience. Pool crew rude twice never encountered this on nine previous cruises. Read entire member review >>

Nothing to complain about at all Read entire member review >>
I loved the balcony cabin, it was a little tight on space, plenty of storage though. I did not like the bathroom layout, it would be awkward with more than one person. There is a curtain you can pull across but it someone comes in the cabin door they are immediately in the bathroom space. The closets are on the other side of the curtain. No privacy at all.
the engine vibration was really bad when coming into port. On sea days it was fine, I never had to worry about setting an alarm for port days because the shaking and noise always woke me up early. Read entire member review >>

Cabin was nice. I really like the separate bathroom areas. Otherwise, it was small and crowded.
Room steward was attentive and kept everything clean and organized, but he was kind of invisible to us. Saw him twice.
Coffee in the room is a nice thing to offer, but try to offer regular coffee instead of decaf all the time. Read entire member review >>
These are their new cabins that have the sink and shower in the cabin and not with a closing door. The lighting in the room was very poor and dark, but we thought the size was average. Read entire member review >>
Balcony Stateroom 8012 was narrow meaning that two people could not get dressed at the same time without bumping into each other.
Ian was our steward and did a very good job. Read entire member review >>
The cabin on the Epic was wonderful with everything that I needed right where I needed it. I used the wake up call system on the phone to keep myself on schedule and not miss any shows or excursions. I loved the night lights on either side of the bed and the shower with 2 different levels and a handheld showerhead. There was plenty of storage area and a queen size bed and nice couch. The only thing that I didn't like was that the movies on the TV cost $10. Needless to say with all of the entertainment options on the ship I wasn't going to pay $10 to watch a movie in the room.

Not enough storage.
Toilet and shower fine.
Entertainment on TV bit limited, but I do not watch TV so not a problem
Cabin steward was brilliant. Read entire member review >>
The room was fantastic! We were in 8024, which is towards the front of the ship and has a balcony with no covering above, leaving it exposed to the sun which was nice. We didn't hear much of Bliss nightclub below, despite people's complaints about this. We were always so wiped by the end of the day anyway! We also didn't have any negative experiences with people throwing trash/cigarette butts from upper balconies onto ours below. Also, there was nothing wrong with the bathroom! So what if the toilet and shower are separate? There was a curtain to separate the toilet/shower with the rest of the room if you're concerned about privacy issues. It wasn't a big deal at all - it seems like people will find anything to complain about. Read entire member review >>
We were in cabin 9056. For a balcony room it seemed very small. Two people could barely pass by each other. The carpet in our stateroom needed to be replaced. Like most people have said the bathroom situation is very weird, but we managed through that. Our room said there could be up to 3 people, there is no way an adult could have slept on the couch that was in our room and if it wasn't just me and my husband it would of been very awkward trying to get ready and change clothes.

We booked with a balcony guarantee, and got a great room on the tenth floor. As with other reviews of the Epic, the cabin is tight and the bathroom situation a bit awkward, but we made do with it. The balcony itself was a nice size. There was plenty of storage with all the various cubby holes around the room. Our room steward Mark was really a great help! Read entire member review >>
We were on deck 9 Forward (9001, the most forward room on port side) with an extra large balcony(about 110sf), thank goodness, at least half the size of our state room. This balcony is closed in more than most but had plenty of room for the 2 chairs, small table and a lounge chair. We didn’t care much for the room design which made it difficult for two people to move around at the same time. It took some getting use to. The bathroom arrangement was unusual but had some positive aspects. Our room was in a very quite location and we spent more time than normal in the room to get away from the crowds and other people's kids and our Stewardess did a good job servicing our room.

We didn't have the same problems that other posters have spoken of. Yes, the sink was small. Yes, it wasn't in a room with the toilet. But you're on vacation. If the location of your sink is going to crush your view of the stateroom, then look at something else for pity's sake. We never had a problem with water getting places it shouldn't have. Even if you did, there's a whole mess of towels right next to it. Balcony was amazing. For this particular itinerary, having the room on the right side of the ship was phenomenal. Got to see the best of the sunrises and sunsets. Read entire member review >>
This is the last cabin on the starboard side by the handicap entrance to the Italian restaurant. It was quiet and although the kids area is on the same floor, we never heard a thing! The cabin itself is fine - except for the awful lighting throughout - but we didn't like the balcony. It has a solid bottom, so you couldn't sit and look out at the water or the port - you had to stand up. Our steward (Eduard) was great - always smiling, always pleasant and unobtrusive.
