These Large Balcony Staterooms can accommodate up to three guests. They include two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed, a separate bathroom with shower and additional bedding to accommodate two more. Not to mention the large private balcony that offers you an incredible view.
Great cabin, nice big balcony! It seems that all balconies have 'tops', which means you only have the sun right in the balcony for a short amount of time every day.
Bed kinda takes up the whole width of the room and when you're with two people, you can't walk behind the bed together.
We loved the bathroom and shower being separate. Lots of storage. And great location on the ship! Right by the elevators, but didn't hear no noise from it! Read entire member review >>
Pro's - The cabins have a lot of storage! Our cabin steward was excellent!!!
Con's - I do not like the bathroom set-up. We had 3 in our cabin and it was awkward. If someone wanted to leave or enter the cabin, they walked right through the bathroom. The cabins are quite small. It's very crowded for more than 2 people (and we have cruised 20+ times, so I have realistic expectations of average cabin sizes). The large balcony is not worth the extra money. Though it is very large, there are still only 2 chairs and a very small side table. I would have preferred a smaller balcony to be honest. Read entire member review >>
No space to move. Large curved sofa is in the way. I would have loved to remove it. I liked the shower and toilet, but having the sink in the bedroom doesn't work for two people who wake at different times. The storage is not accessible. Read entire member review >>
Layout of the bathroom is bad. The room has the bed near the door, the other option is the couch near the door. Get the couch near the door if possible, more room in cabin. Read entire member review >>
very small the bathroom is weird I did not see where this design saved space at all. There was lots of storage but you couldnt seperate the beds more than 6 inches. Its good we were good friends. The light is underneath the vanity weird place for a light switch Read entire member review >>
Loved our cabin! This is a "cove-style" balcony which some folks don't enjoy but we really really did! it gives you a lot of privacy along with much appreciated shade. AND... IT. IS. HUGE. Read entire member review >>
Deck 13 Midship Large Angled Balcony with Superior Forward View.
Bed near the balcony was not as roomy as sofa near balcony we had on prior cruise.
Stupid split bathroom layout.
Limited storage - enough for two but crowded for any more that two.
Bed was comfortable but too short. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was adequate but tight. We had the bed first configuration and then couch which is a waste of space but very doable. Balcony was half the size of the room and amazing as long as you don't mind visablity to the upper decks. New configuration of the shower and toilet configurations, curtain there but semi privacy. All in all, no Cruise stateroom is spacious but is functional. Read entire member review >>
The staterooms have curved walls with short curved mattresses and a curved sofa that just takes up room. You can't sit on it to watch TV or do anything else. Two chairs would have been such a better choice.
Lots of storage for your "stuff". Unusual bathroom arrangement was OK.
Only one plugin, so be sure to take a power strip. Read entire member review >>
Balcony was huge! We had a lounger, 3 chairs and a small table with room to spare. The cabin on the other hand, was extremely small. It was hard for my husband and I to move around with banging into each other. The curvy design makes it seem very small. We weren't big fans of the toilet/shower configuration, but we made due.

B6 cabin, 11075 which was a large balcony. We were fully aware of the non-bathroom set up which personally was not a problem, but my Wife was less than impressed. She suggested that the designer should be sacked and that is probably why the Epic has no Sister ship.
The balcony had 2 loungers, 2 chairs and 2 small tables which was fine. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was nicely appointed with moderate storage. No room to walk around. Only one person could pass while the other got out of the way. Very large balcony made up for the tiny room. Comfy bed/ Read entire member review >>
There was plenty of room in the cabin. The balcony was roomy (but not cleaned at all during our 20 days). The bed was extremely uncomfortable - I ended up not being able to get out of bed without help and had to go for a very poorly done and over priced acupuncture treatment. After asking my cabin steward for 10 days to please find a foam to put on my mattress ( he finally did and I slept much better for the remainder of the trip).
We really disliked the bathroom set up in the room - NO PRIVACY! Very poorly planned. That could even be enough to make me not want to go on the epic again. Read entire member review >>
Room needs some minor repair. Laminate under the mini bar has come off. Not to keen in the way the bathroom/shower is setup. Both are right in the room, no door to separate them from the room. Sink is right in front of the bed. Putting that aside, it's a typical cruise ship room. Not a lot of space but you don't spend that much time in the room anyway. Pretty good storage space (closet & drawers), Additional drawers under the couch. Nice size balcony. Read entire member review >>
Cabins are a little tight for space, but they are just used for showering and sleeping, as there's so much to do on the ship and on excursions. The location of this cabin is excellent as it is just beside the elevators for the back of the ship and also near the medical center in case of emergencies! Read entire member review >>
The cabins are an ergonomic disaster. Whoever designed these cabins should be locked in one and forced to stay there. There was no comfortable seating. Be sure you get along very well with your roommate, as you will be climbing over each other any time you are in the room. Plan more time to get ready because you have to wait for the other person to finish something in order to squeeze by. Read entire member review >>
Cabin with "open floor plan with bathroom as part of the cabin" - We knew what to expect from the previous cruise. The shower stall, the toilet stall, and sink part of the cabin. The shower stall and toilet stall can be separated by a curtain for some privacy. This is annoying even for a married couple. The privacy is limited unless someone goes on the balcony or leaves the room. (We were in cabin 9240 - exterior with a balcony.) Read entire member review >>
The cabin was quite small but there was plenty of storage space. The balcony was angled and quite large although we only had the standard 2 chairs and a table. The double bed was comfortable but my daughter didn't enjoy her "sofa bed". Read entire member review >>
Much more spacious than anticipated. Large balcony had two chairs and two loungers. Some may find the shower, toilet arrangement a bit intimate, but hey, surely you're pretty close to those you're travelling with anyway. Very comfortable beds. No noise from other rooms. Great service by our room steward. Read entire member review >>
Shower-sink-toilet arrangement on Epic is atypical and widely criticized. It is however manageable. Cabins are very tight and extremely difficult to maneuver from one end to the other when more than one person is dressing and/or selecting their clothes. Read entire member review >>
Coffee maker in cabin was a nice touch. Balcony was large, and there was lots of storage.
Poorly designed stateroom-frosted glass around toilet and stall shower (which were separated) gave too little privacy (especially if the door to the cabin was being opened). Tiny sink, across from the foot of the bed, splashed over on tissue box installed below sink. If you use conditioner for your hair, bring your own. Ditto for hand/body lotion. Read entire member review >>
I'm really not a fan of the curved shaped staterooms nor the semi private shower and toilets. (my stateroom was 11245) . It was very difficult passing one another at the foot of the bed, with its curve, and knowing what ones doing in the toilet isn't difficult to guess (being its only covered by a sliding glass door}.

Our room was ready about 12:30 and we were very impressed with how clean and beautiful it was. Our steward Romel was there to great us and answer any questions we had. After reading all the reviews I was worried about the bathroom/shower but it was fine, different but we had no complaints. It was clean so I was happy! Room was great size for 2 people, we had an extended balcony cabin 10111. May be a bit tight for 3 adults. Plenty of storage, we had drawers and a closet we didn't even use! Nice refrigerator, we took the mini bar items out to put our own things in. Read entire member review >>
Wow what a cabin. There were 3 adult women in our cabin and we had plenty of storage space. In fact we did not fill it all up. On the last day of the cruise we discovered even more storage that we did not know we had. The balcony was unbelievably large and we spent a lot of time in the morning and then again late at night on it. It had 2 lounge chairs and 2 regular chairs and a small table on it. There is actually room for 3 lounge chairs. The bathroom situation is a little awkward but we managed. If you have not been on Epic, there is no separate room for the shower, toilet and sink. There is a curtain you can pull closed across the toilet and shower. There is only 1 outlet in the room so we had an extension cord with us and that worked fine. We found the location of the cabin to be a good one. We were close enough to the stairs and elevators but just far enough to not hear anything in the night. Read entire member review >>
The cabin has pleating of space for your stuff, but anyway mayor complain "BATHROOM" this is ridicules, toilet, shower and vanity in separate areas, and not too much privacy. Balcony with nice space SERVICE !!!! Please, horrible, !!! remember is Free Stile including the staff.Location: very good, close to elevator. Be sure do not use floor # 8 very noisy, but # 9 is fine. Read entire member review >>
The large balcony room was a nice option to get away from everyone and relax. The room was spacious enough for two, but had a weird privacy curtain for the bathroom and shower, but worked fine. Lighting was good, closet space perfect, bed comfy, but the room was never cleaned to my liking...from hairs and gum on the balcony floor to the glasses having stuff on them. Made me have to rewash them myself everyday. The floor was not clean enough for me to walk without at least socks on, room was dusty too. The tv station options were horrible. I believe almost all of them were either the news, kids, 1 movie channel and everything else was NCL related. Read entire member review >>
This was our first balcony room and we loved it. The size of the balcony was great, the room size was great, and the location was great with zero noise issues. For the price point it was a bargain. The only complaint is of course the bathroom. I didn't mind the layout but the sink drove me nuts trying to shave. My wife did not like the bathroom layout at all. My in-laws had the same room further forward and they also loved it. Read entire member review >>
Good balcony...large triangular shape. I did not really care for "wavy Shape" of room or bathroom setup.There was storage room, but still very difficult for two people to negotiate room at same time, a lot of "Excuse Me" required Read entire member review >>
Regular sized-cabin but huge balcony. Wonderful location on deck 10. No facing cabins as the medical center is on the other side. Very quiet. Very near back set of stairs and elevators which were much quieter than those at the front of the ship. No complaints at all. Would definitely recommend. Read entire member review >>
Cabins are adequate for what you need, bathroom and shower facilities are not ideal but are doable, plenty of drawer space but not much space to move about in the cabin, but then again you don't spend that much time in it. Read entire member review >>
Good storage to unpack your things, and suitcases fit under the bed. The bathroom is terrible with see through doors to the toilet and shower, and a sink in the bedroom. The sink is tiny and there isn't enough room for more than one person to turn around in the entire room. Very constricted on space and claustrophobic. The deck is nice. Read entire member review >>
Very small room, not a fan of the "wave" design. Standard room would have offered more useable space. Storage was great. Large balcony was awesome, room for 2 chairs, 2 loungers and a small table. Split bathroom not a huge problem, but prefer standard set up. Small sink not efficient. Read entire member review >>
The cabin only has two AC outlets that are hidden away under a "desk." After a week, we still couldn't find the location of all the cabin lights. There was some sort of tapping noise that recurred every time we were underway. That was especially annoying when trying to sleep at night. Read entire member review >>
Great cabin with the bed by the door set up. The balcony is huge and private. Loads of storage space. Very convenient to get up to the Pool Deck, Garden Cafe and Splash Academy. Read entire member review >>
Not a clear balcony, had to stand for view of ocean. Large balcony has only two chairs.
Tight squeeze, no privacy in bathroom.
No hangers in one of the wardrobes - cannot move from one to another. Read entire member review >>
Cramped cabin versus standard balcony cabins on other ships. Much-debated bathroom layout was not a big deal to us (married 24 yrs, not too modest). Balcony was huge. We asked steward for 2 loungers. He delivered them before sail away. We spent a lot of time here. Closet space and storage was excellent, specially considering the size of the room. Although we loved the big balcony, in the future we'd likely opt for a larger cabin, even at the expense of a smaller balcony. Read entire member review >>
SMALL ROOM, NO ROOM BETWEEN BEDS AND COUNTERS. HAD A LARGE BALCONY ROOM-BALCONY WAS LARGE AND VERY NICE. LIKED THE SEPARATE TOILET FROM SHOWER. QUIET LOCATION, HOWEVER LOTS OF SMOKERS AROUND OUR ROOM. Read entire member review >>
Epic Cabin #11169 BF Large Balcony
Bed was close to balcony. Was narrow for 2 people to pass. Great Shower. No problem with sink splashing. Entrance to toilet area would be very tight for larger people. Read entire member review >>
Cabin balcony had a steel plate that restricted the water view when inside the cabin.
Also, there was more swaying movement probably due to being the first cabin in the front of the ship.
The bed was comfortable, and I liked the shower, toilet setup, although my wife did not like having the sink next to the bed.
We would not want this cabin again. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 9021-Great balcony very good size. 2 lounge chairs and 2 patio chairs with small table. Nicely decorated. comfy bed with nice beddings. If you are super tall your feet may hang out of bed since it was not the longest bed but it was adequate for me and my husband. Lots of storage. Big faults would be the lighting is very bad and the privacy level of the toilet and shower at the entrance is lacking but we got used to it and having the separate shower/ toilet/ sink made it easier for 2 people to get ready at the same time since all three were separate and not in the same room. I would have no hesitation staying in this cabin again in the future based on the large balcony and comfortable bed. Read entire member review >>
Tight layout made it difficult for two people to get ready. Bathroom and sink was near the bed, closets on other side with only about one foot to get by the bed. Room was cozy and quiet along with a large balcony. Highly recommend getting a cabin at end of hallway if you want peace and quiet. Read entire member review >>
Large balcony due to the "bump out". Room is a little tight. Sofa is worthless except as a place for a third person to sleep. Bathroom, sink, and frosted doors were not a problem for us. Plenty of storage. Nice lighting. Comfortable bed. Shower was nice. Read entire member review >>
I purposely booked a large balcony room, category B6, so me and the kids would have the extra room. However, I learned that my balcony room was cramped. It was hard for 3 of us to maneuver around the room at the same time. To be honest, the inside cabins as well as the solo cabins had more room to move around than our balcony room. The sink was a bit small. I didn't make a mess, I just wished the sink was a little larger. Other than that, everything was great. The bathroom set up didn't bother us. We actually found it quite amusing at times. I guess that just our humor. :-) The beds were absolutely amazing. However, the sofa that rolls out was one of the most uncomfortable places I have slept. We all took turns sleeping on that. GRADE -â€" C Read entire member review >>
Great cabin Not too far from elevators Completely covered and sheltered from wind and rain BIG BALCONy with lounge chairs Spent HOURS on Balcony LOved it
Great service from RODRIGO Read entire member review >>
Cabin 10016 - check out the balcony. We thought we had won a watch as it appeared on the deck plan to be twice as long as the others but it had no glass frontage therefore felt very enclosed. Open space felt like we had a window with no glass. So we were a wee bit disappointed that we had paid an extra 600 plus to enjoy a balcony. On the subject of the opaque glass shower and separate toilet...hmm, not too keen although you only saw the outline because it was opaque, however on a ship which on every corner squirted you with disinfectant (which is excellent to note!!) why put the wash hand (tiny) basin in the cabin itself. Obviously when you hmmm wipe yourself, you then have to pull open the door and cross to the basin to clean your hands?? Hey who thought this one up. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was too small. For this to be a new ship i would have expected the room to a little bigger than what the old ships cabins are. But this is the smallest cabin we have ever had out of 9 cruises. Read entire member review >>
Great balcony overlooking other balconies and no one overlooks you. Just one neighbor. Bigger than other balconies in the same category. Bed by the bathroom (would be better by the balcony) Not much room between the bed and counter. Lots of storage. Very efficient design overall Read entire member review >>
Hated the toilet and shower setup/location; I have been married 20 years and I had to ask my spouse to leave the room every time I had to go to the bathroom.
Our room was shaking/vibrating 5 out of 7 days; very, very annoying when you're trying to sleep. We were told the noise was the engine "revving" up, and we were given an option of moving to another room to sleep every night, which we gladly took!
There were a total of 37 people in our group, everyone that had 3 or more people in the room complained that the rooms were too small and there was no privacy for the bathroom. The toilet flushing noise was too loud, you cannot use bathroom in the middle of the night for fear of waking everyone up! The toilets and showers in the fitness center had more privacy! Read entire member review >>
The space between the bed and counter hardly big enough to roll suitcases through. Was not a fan of separate toliet, shower and sink... The BALCONY was BIG and beautiful, if you had family, you could have the partion removed so you could enjoy each other's company on the balcony. Loved the sliding glass door as opposed to the one you have to pull open. Read entire member review >>
Great spacious balcony, but enclosed, so have to stand up and look out to see everything. Room was on the small side, but storage space makes up for that. Child will sleep in a travel-sized pack n play, rather than a full-sized one. Read entire member review >>
great location. right around from the elevators. i asked my gf during the trip, do we have any neighbors? because I didn't hear one door slam shut or people in the halls. Wide balcony with reclining chairs. not every balcony had that. never felt her rock side to side. Read entire member review >>
We loved our location as our room was close to the elevator and it was very quiet. We had an extended balcony and I loved this as I was able to put two loungers out there so we could fully enjoy the balcony. I never heard any noise from side to side and above and below. I am a very light sleeper so this was very important to me.
There was plenty of storage room lots of cubby holes and plenty of space to hang clothes.
The bathroom set up was a non issue for us except when I did order a Pizza I thought oh my what am I going to if he knocks on the door while I am in here by myself? Read entire member review >>
We had cabin #12092 on the Norwegian Epic. It was located where the ship bumps out which made the balcony almost 3 times bigger than a normal BD balcony. Norwegian now has an up charge for such locations and are well worth the cost if you spend a good deal of time on the balcony. We found the storage adequate although not generous. This cabin would be a real squeeze for more than two adults. The shower was the largest in our experience. Read entire member review >>
