These Balcony Staterooms are mid-ship, so you'll have easy access to all the delicious dining and exciting activities on board.
I was not a fan of the cabin design. The shower/toilet split with frosted glass was awkward because it was in the doorway. Also, if you had the wardrobe door open it was impossible to pass. It just felt tight. There was good storage. Read entire member review >>
There wasn't a separate bathroom. The toilet was in one glass enclosed and the shower in another. NyQuil could hear everything that was going on. The beds were uncomfortable and the curved design while aesthetically pleasing took out precious foot space. Read entire member review >>
Cabin needed cleaning upon entering. Big issue with separate toilet, shower and sink areas. Not enough privacy. Poor cabin location - across from crew hallway - banging door as they would enter/exit. Great amount of storage. Good sized balcony. Read entire member review >>
We had balcony rooms (11175 and 11179 - starboard side). I read many reviews about the rooms, which I was completely okay with as they offered plenty of closet and storage space for our clothing, toiletries, electronics, etc.. Maneuverability in the room was a bit tight when my wife and I were getting ready to go out, but not enough to lower my rating. I was also okay with the bathroom set-up that had a separate shower and toilet. I wasn't initially fond of the curved bed, but we adjusted and we slept fine (probably due to the fact we were exhausted from excursions). I did not like the sink set-up as it was very tiny and was difficult to use when shaving. We also had some issues with the dimmed lighting in the room, which took some time to figure out which switch controlled what. Read entire member review >>
Our biggest gripe about this ship is the staterooms. We all had a stateroom with a balcony. There is a very odd arrangement with the toilet and bathroom being separate with a glass surrounding so although it is opaque, you have very little privacy as you can see the shape through the glass door which is a sliding door. The hand washbasin is in the room and is very small; there is no hand wash basin in the toilet. Some of the staterooms have the bed near balcony doors, making it difficult for you to exit the balcony doors without negotiating the bed while others had the bed right next to the toilet only separated by a sliding curtain near the main entrance door. The cabins are so narrow that there is only an 18inch walking area between the bed and the wardrobes or sink area therefor you cannot pass each other without moving to one end of the room. The beds are comfortable but curved to fit the room and the space. We had a double bed which was 6 foot in the middle, with the curved areas on the edge of the bed being only 5foot, so we had our feet hanging out of the bed all night! One of our passengers was 6’4” so found the bed very uncomfortable. Read entire member review >>
I like to have a balcony, but when I opened this door to this room I said "oh my God, how are 3 people fitting in here?" You walk in and you are standing in the bathroom. Toilet to right, shower to left, Exterior door does NOT open all the way because of towel holder for shower. Force luggage through opening (ridiculous). Where is the sink, mirror etc... Oh yes not there, in the living area right next to the LCD TV over by the bed. So if you are rooming with people that are friends, this cabin design does not offer privacy, not a door but a curtain that separates the bed from the shower/toilet area. This is the WHOLE ship design for all cabins, this is the "European Style" Horrible design. Bed was so close to small vanity area that luggage could not pass between, We had to pick up, slide across to couch area. Normal size luggage folks. Lighting horrible if the sun don't shine through from balcony. One outlet ( always bring extension cord ) for that reason. Very small cabin for being a balcony. The balcony was an ok size, but table was the size of a larger frisbee which was odd. Not impressed with this room at all Read entire member review >>
Cabin was very adequate for our needs. Lots of storage room, great service from our steward (always ice in the bucket) and despite complaints about the beds I've read we like a firm mattress so it was great for us. I requested a bath robe which which was delivered right away. Read entire member review >>
The balcony room was very nice, not sure who designed the bathroom, it was not all inclusive like we were used to but we managed. There was not much room at the bottom of the bed for two people to navigate. Bed was very comfortable. Read entire member review >>
We had no problem with the cabin. It was a little tight when we both were moving around. The bathroom configuration was fine for us. There is a lot of storage. They were really creative with that. Just keep exploring and you will find it all Read entire member review >>
The weirdest layout I have ever seen. Potty right inside the door. Sink at the foot of the bed. NO space between bed and sink. Two people cannot pass through at the same time. Potty is at the head of the bed. Better know the person you are traveling with well or you will after. Think who ever designed this worked for the airlines and thought "how many cabins can we squeeze into a space". Read entire member review >>
Once on the Epic, we went immediately to our room. I did my research on the room and knew what to expect. The actual experience left me even more disappointed. We booked a balcony room and yes, it had the wavy walls. These rooms are very tight for moving around. Only one person at a time past the bed. The head of our bed was near the commode so we decided "no flushing" during the night! The shower and commode are opposite each other when you enter the room. You actually step out into the small hall way to dry off and dress. It is too tight in the shower to dry off. Our sink was at the foot of the curved bed so each time it is used water would drip on the floor. We had to keep a towel on the floor at all times. I will not go on the Epic again due to the very poor design of the balcony rooms. The best outcome was our room person, Elisa, who always was smiling and singing while she cleaned. And she always addressed us by our name. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was nice and modern with lot of storage, but oh SO SMALL! You can not move around in there, without running into each other. The bed is way to close to the toilet, which wasn't always convenient. You have to dress/undress in the area in front of the door, between the toilet and shower not idea, but manageable' The balcony is a nice size, but was not allowed to open the dividers. You have to keep you card into the a/c slot, used any card on hand, I had my AAA card, which was worked perfectly, kept our room nice and cool just the way we like it. Read entire member review >>
Our first impression of the stateroom was "oh my god it's so small"!!! Even with a balcony the room looked daunting. The toilet was right next to the bed and this became interesting to say the least!!! :) However once we had unpacked and found all of the great hidden cupboard space in the room we settled in and actually enjoyed the room. It was very well designed (apart from the toilet!!)
Bed was a little small for my partner who is 6' 3" but we managed. The TV had good channels and a dedicated movie channel (ch 19) which had some great movies.
All toiletries in the cabin were very nice and smelled great.
Our steward, ROMAN was lovely too and worked so hard. Read entire member review >>
The room was tired and not clean--there were smears on the wall by my bed that looked like boogers, the carpet was stained in multiple places, there was paint and dried food on the balcony (either they are washing Froot Loops off an upper deck or kids are throwing them), the door between our deck and the adjoining one banged in the wind, the lights in half the room turned themselves off every 30 minutes (electrical short?) and the thermostat was broken (though they fixed that one.)
While the room was well stocked when we checked in, that was the last time that we had a full assortment of towels, coffee and stirring sticks. After a couple of days of using the same towel (and reusing a wet one after a two shower day) I took to restocking our room myself from the carts in the hall. Read entire member review >>
The cabin is of the curved wall design with the shower and W/C separated by the entrance. The shower is also curved and very small....you have to get out of the shower to even change your mind. There's plenty of storage in bins under the couch, sink as well as 3 shallow drawers. Hang up space was adequate. There is a safe for valuables, a small refrigerator/mini-bar and the sink area had enough space for toiletries. There were NO BLACKOUT CURTAINS, so depending on which side of the ship the sun comes up on will depend on whether or not you get an sunrise wake-up shining in your face. Also, there are no longer bathrobes in the staterooms....you have to ask the steward for them which we did. They were cheerfully provided. Read entire member review >>
Reasonable size midship cabin that is positioned very nicely for access to the elevators without being too close to have traffic noise. This is one of the ones with the beds near the toilet cabin, not near the balcony. It wasn't as much of an issue as I was afraid of, but I'll watch out next time and get one with the sitting area on inside. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was excellent. Clean and in very good condition. The linens on the bed and the towels were excellent. Our steward was wonderful = very attentative and informative and explained little details to us about the room. Our door to the toilet was not working properly and she had a maintenance person fix it within 20 minutes after our arrival. Our balcony was nice and large and we really enjoyed having it to sit out and just enjoy the scenery and also a nice get away from the rest of the ship. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was comfortable of course you always want more room! The balcony was wonderful enjoyed many a coffee in the morning watching the sun come up and glass of wine at sunset. the cabin had plenty of storage, while it was furnished with a coffee maker it would have been nice to have a hair dryer and iron but one was made available when asked. Service from the cabin steward (Ricardo) was efficient while not overbearing always there when we needed him Read entire member review >>
I had read mixed reviews about the cabins...we loved it. We found the separate toilet and shower to be wonderful and liked having the sink separate too. In this way, 2 people could be using facilities at the same time. The curtain provided privacy if needed. I do recommend having the bed nearer to the sliding doors, gives more room. Incredible, polite staff in every way. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was excellent with lots of storage space. We didn't mind the unusual layout of the shower, toilet & sink. it worked well for us. The 3 drawers were very narrow but not a problem as we used them for smaller items and the many shelves for bigger stuff.It was a very quiet cabin with no outside noise at all.

Nice clean stateroom.
The layout of the bathroom facilities was quite good, although the basin in the room could of been a little larger.
Plenth of storage, with a light inside the wardrobe.
Very comfortable beds. Read entire member review >>
Loved our cabin! Perfect for the two of us. Bathrooms are different from other cruiselines. The toilet and shower are located in separate areas across from each other. Lots of storage space. Our cabin was a large mid-ship balcony on the 10th floor which jutted diagonally outward facing forward on the right side of the ship. Totally recommend the cabin Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was great, very clean and we had a balcony (8023) it was also very quiet at night. I found the boat itself to be very quiet in general. This room is on the lowest deck and is exposed/has no roof which i enjoyed as it meant more sun. It was near the front of the ship. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was fresh and modern. Balcony a good size. Plenty of storage space. Would prefer shower to be more separate from living area and room layout meant we didn't use the settee. Read entire member review >>
We were glad we had booked a balcony cabin as we enjoyed watching the approach to new ports in the morning and being able to sit out whenever we wanted.
Our steward was very attentive and kept everything clean. Towels were changed twice daily if used.
The bed was comfortable and the cabin more spacious than we had expected. Read entire member review >>
Excellent cabin, actually liked the bathroom arrangement. I don't necessarily like it better than the traditional set-up, but it worked fine. The room is on the narrow side, but not a big deal. Room has a nice balcony with a great view....no life boats below to block the view when looking down. Room was very quiet, no creaks or rattles, and the a/c worked great. Bed was also very comfortable Tons of storage, really way more than is probably needed. Eduardo was the room steward, and he was the best. Read entire member review >>
When we got to the Balcony, we had needless to say, a HUGE smile on our face, the mid ship balcony was perfect, it had space, the balcony was perfect, we were close to everything on board, elevator was less than a minute walk....oh how I miss that room. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 11178 was pretty much dead-on mid-ship. The bed is by the balcony in this cabin, and the cabin is in a quiet location. A service area door is directly across the hall, but was not noisy. The only time we heard much was on embarkation day when luggage was being delivered. Since there are no elevators or stairs mid-ship, we were prepared for a hike forward or aft. In the end, neither were a long walk away (we only used the stairs, no elevators).We were concerned about wear and tear on the ship since we last sailed in 2013, but the room was very well kept, carpet was in a good shape, and the furniture all looked good. Some rust spots on the balcony, but no big deal. Read entire member review >>
This stateroom worked ok for us. Like everyone else says the bathroom set up is very weird and we did not care for it. Definitely would be uncomfortable using it with someone other than spouse in the room. Hopefully NCL got the message on this and will never do it again. The room is a little tight and the wave thing doesn't really add anything to the room. Overall it wouldn't keep me from booking the Epic again for the right price but I would choose another ship first if given the choice. Read entire member review >>
Better than our last balcony cabin on the Epic - this one had the bed near the balcony and not up against the bathrooms and sink. Shoot for a cabin that's laid out that way and you'll be much happier. Read entire member review >>
Incredibly small. We have had one other cabin this size - aboard the Uniworld River Queen sailing from Amsterdam to Vienna. The "Waves" design of the cabin wasted valuable space. The bizzare design, where the toilet, shower and sink were separated from each other, was pitiful. If you sail on this ship be sure to get a balcony cabin. you will definitely need the extra space. Read entire member review >>
Great cabin service. However the 'curvey' design is really cramped. The rounded bed, head and foot is to small for my 6'. It is uncomfortable to sit up to watch the TV the doesn't swivel.No coffee table, no room. The pullout bed blocks all access to the bathroom area. Sitting at the dressing table is difficult on the stool provided.The enclosed shower and head is the best asset. (no pun intended)The balcony was great after we tipped for a table..

Way too small for three people, even when one of them is only 2. Plenty of storage, just no place to stand, no place to eat if you order room service, etc. Don't plan on doing anything other than sleeping in this room. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was decent, we didnt have an issue with the infamous "see thru" shower and toilet space pods, but we were a couple traveling alone. If you have a kid with you or a friend/relative other than a spouse, i can see why people hate these. Read entire member review >>
Staterooms – we had cabin 12157, an outside midship balcony. The biggest pluses were lots of storage and closet space, we showed up with two large suitcases and a large carryon stuffed full with clothes and there was ample hanging and storage space for 21 days on board a ship. The second thing we loved was the bathroom, the shower, commode and sink were all separate areas so someone could be using the shower and the other could be using the toilet. The biggest negatives were 1) the bed which was very short, my feet hung off the end and 2) the cabin was narrow so you had to coordinate passing between the bed and dresser/TV area. I also heard complaints about dim lighting in the cabin, while this was never a problem for me I could see it being a problem for those who like bright lights. 7 out of 10.

The cabin was beautifully located, mid-ships. Great balcony, but a LONG way from the nearest elevator. (Hard to believe that on a ship the size of the Epic, there are only two banks of elevators--one forward and one aft). Read entire member review >>
Comfortable cabin and bed, though tight around the bed. Dim lighting above the mirror so hard to do makeup. Turn water on slowly in the sink and you will have no trouble with it. Nice balcony..over all quiet..great view. Loads of storage. Just FYI..the switch for the light over the mirror is located on the bottom of the medicine cabinet..(took us some hunting). There is extra storage behind the sofa backs. Toilet/shower split was really not a problem for us. The shower is large..plenty of room to reach out for your towel and dry off inside shower before stepping out. Read entire member review >>
Room 12177 on the Epic is 216 sq ft including balcony. The balcony is small, with room for 2 charis and a tiny table, provided. The shower is it's own little pod as is the toilet. The sink/medicine cabinet area is in the room. There's a couch and the entire room is curved. The 2 twin beds can be pushed together to make a larger one. Perfect for 2 people who want a balcony upgrade but probably a bit much once you try to get 3 or more in there. We loved breakfast on the balcony. There's a flat screen tv with little choice in channels, plenty of space, a mini bar with for sale stuff in it and storage for clothing, luggage and anything else you may need to stuff away somewhere. We brought too many clothes and had plenty of room. there's a safe for your valuables and a steward. There's a coffee pot we didn't use and an ice bucket with glasses for you. We really didn't use the couch except as a catch all for clothes and stuff we'd buy in port. Very nice upgrade from an inside, but not necessary if you won't be there much.

Quiet location, but quite a walk to the elevator. Felt very little motion. A little rust on the balcony but overall, in good repair. Closet space sufficient for 2 people for one week, but might be a little tight for two weeks. Nice covered balcony. Beds too close to toilet area, separated only by a curtain. Sink in awkward location at the foot of the bed. Read entire member review >>
Very poorly designed balcony staterooms. As you enter toilet is on the right, shower is on the left, the sink is on the left side in front of the bed. If you use the mirror at the dresser another person cannot walk around the person to get to the closet. Read entire member review >>
the stateroom despite being a three berth was very small and although there were only two of us we found it very small. If one of us was sat at the hairdryer the other person was trapped at one end of the cabin with no room to move around. The washbasin was in the cabin and not the bathroom - how strange? The glass doors to the toilet and shower are very weird - good job there is a curtain you can pull across to shut them off but a couple of times we were nearly caught drying ourselves off after showering by the cabin steward knocking on door as there is nowhere to dry yourself other than by the cabin door.

Balcony Cabin 11157 midship starboard side. It had plenty of storage. My husband and I are not very big people so we fit fine in it, but I could see that larger or obese people would be uncomfortable. Bathroom and shower were separate and compact. The balcony was a decent size. We didn't have much time to relax on it but it was good enough to check the weather and see the sun rise. We had equal access to both sets of stairs/elevators.
My mom and a female friend stayed across the hall in inside cabin 11155. You need to be really good friends or patient with each other to stay in inside cabin. The beds didn't separate so they shared a king size bed. There's not much privacy for the bathroom, so they would use the public toilets when needed. There is a curtain that covers the shower stall for privacy. There was enough storage for 2 women to fit all their stuff.
My other friend and her brother stayed in balcony cabin 11161 midship starboard side next to ours, again the beds were not separated and brother/sister shared king size bed. They also worked out their small bathroom/toilet area in shifts. Read entire member review >>
Apart from the "issue" of the bathroom set-up that is in reality not so bad, the cabin is excellent. Very quiet, everything working, no bad smells, comfortable bed, great view and would willingly have the same cabin again. Read entire member review >>
Balcony was fine but I did not like the cabin layout. The cabin we were in was suppoosed to fit four people, it would be very squashed if there had been four of us.
The bed was comfy but because it was curved it took up a lot of space. I did not like the idea of the washbasin being in the cabin, not very private. The same with the toilet and shower, when someone was in there you could more or less see them, not private. I would sooner have a closed off bathroom with all facilities in there.
The wardrobe space was excellent, plenty of hangers and space. I didnt like the idea of the TV being placed opposite the bed. If you were sitting on the setee you couldnt see it because it was not on a swivel.
The cabin was quiet, we had no problems, the steward was nice and did a good job for us. Plenty of towels etc. Read entire member review >>
A nice large balcony and be prepared to squeeze into the cabin. They took room away space from the cabin to use it for the balcony. The cabins are not very sound proof. We heard people walking around in the room above. These are the smallest cabins we have ever been in. There is only a forward and aft set of stairs, none mid-ship. They eliminated a stairway to get in more cabins. Read entire member review >>
12177 MidShip Balcony BA. Plenty of storage space. When one is out on balcony and the other is in the bathroom or shower w/ the curtain closed, the door to balcony closed and the door to shower or bathroom closed there is plenty of privacy. Room is comfy for 2, but not for a family. Maybe one child would work if they slept on the couch. i wouldn't go more than that. 3 total plugs, so bring an adaptor w/ extra plugs if you need it. TV has the inputs disabled so don't think you'll get to watch your own movies on the room tv. Bring a pico projector or an iPad and you're fine. Balcony has 2 chairs and a small table for drinks or 1 plate. It's so worth it to have a balcony on this ship and have that space to relax by yourself or with your partner or family member or traveling partner. Shower is easy to use and includes shampoo and body soap stuff from a container built into the shower. Safe can be programmed as soon as you get into your room, and fits jewelry, money, maybe an ipad or two. Our steward was trustworthy, didn't touch our cash when we forgot to lock our safe. You'll have a touchscreen phone next to the bed and reading lights as well as several other lights throughout the cabin. There's a slot near the door that needs a key card to work, but any card will do, even an old hotel key card. I'm certain that if you upgrade to a balcony room you'll enjoy it as much as we did.

Tight...can brush you teeth over the sink while sitting on the bed. Toilet is extremely loud to flush since there is no official door, just the sliding glass door. Akward layout overall. No space at all for a crib...you will have to get a small one in order not to move the sofa mattress out of the way. Read entire member review >>
We had a starboard-side, mid-ship balcony on deck 11. The cabin is a bit small, especially the space between the bed and the sink/counter. We had the bed-near-the-door configuration which I would not choose again. These cabins also have the bed near the balcony configuration, which I think is better, as the toilet is not right next to your head! Yes, the toilet and shower compartments are a bit odd, but I like the "external" sink, and it wasn't as splashy as others have said. The shower is great!
The storage is fabulous. In addition to a normal-sized long closet, there's a short closet above three roomy drawers. There's a good-sized cabinet under the counter next to the sink for dopp kits, cosmetic bags, etc. and a large cabinet next to the vanity section, which contains the safe and is really deep. Additionally, there are large cubbies behind the back cushions of the sofa, and more cubbies in the bulkhead on the curved wall above the sofa and bed. The only down side for the cabin is there aren't enough hooks/racks for towels and it's a LONG walk to the elevators. For such a large ship, the elevators are in two groups at each end--none in the middle. Read entire member review >>
Large balcony with two chairs, plenty of room. Overhead and side privacy. Two floors down from childrens area and not far from elevators. Bed was located next to sliders which gave ample room to move around. Read entire member review >>
Overall the cabin was excellent with plenty of storage space built in although circulation space at the end of the bed was very tight. The only downside was the lack of a washing facility within the toilet closet. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was on Deck 12 midships. Overall the cabin was nice. The balcony was great. The cabin could have used some additional hooks to hang clothes from. The 3 of us had ample space. The only real downside was that fact that the elevators and stairways were located at the ends of the ship. If you accidentally went the wrong direction, you had to walk the entire length of the ship. The signage on board was poor. Read entire member review >>
Typical balcony cabin, located mid-ship. Since the elevators are toward the front and back of the ship, you have to walk to get to them. Make sure you know where your destination is (front or back) before you pick a direction. Read entire member review >>
We chose a midships balcony cabin. Once on board we found that there are no midships elevators, only front and back. To go from our cabin to the service desk, one has to go the length of the ship. The balcony was the place where we could be side by side, because the room was so narrow that we could not pass each other without backing up. Read entire member review >>

Location on ship was fine - - mid-ship and high deck.
Room itself is small for more than 1 person. Not enough space to put your things. Comfortable bed. Good TV though not much to watch due to limited channels. Bathroom setup is bizarre and we didn't like it. There is no bathroom as such. You walk into the room and the shower is on your right and the toilet on your left, both behind frosted sliding glass doors. There is a relative lack of privacy as compared to a traditional bathroom. The sink is in the room beside the closet. Read entire member review >>
The cabin, although small, but expected to be so on a cruise ship, was very efficiently configured so there was lots of storage space. The cabin was very modern and everything was easily accessible. The balcony was a good size and really a pleasure to use during the day or evening. It was so nice to be able to keep the balcony door open during the night and hear the waves and enjoy the fresh ocean air. We didn't hear any noise from any other cabin, so the cabins are quite soundproof. The flushing of the toilet is no louder than any other we've experienced on cruises over the years.

Cabin was fine. Since the ship is new everything was spic-and-span (except for some rust on the balcony railing). Bathroom and shower were nice, and we didn't experience the basin splashing others have discussed. Lots of storage space, and really large balcony. All-in-all, good. Read entire member review >>
Cabin Arrangement: WAS HIDEOUS! Bathroom was spread out at the entrance and took up way too much cabin space. It was quite fun to be in the shower when someone wanted to go out the door! No privacy at all and it was very noisy. Bed was really comfortable, but set only a few inches from the cabinets at the end of the bed so walking back and forth was often obstructed. It did not matter where you were in the cabin you always needed to get to the other side or where the other person was. Terrible arrangement! Will not cruise the EPIC again because of this alone!
ALSO Cabin had ventilation issues. Some how cigarette smoke was beginning pumped into the room in the evenings for 2-3 hours. We reported it and they would clean the room the next day, but the issues was ventilation and they never did find out what was causing the problem. Read entire member review >>
Cabin layout had no thoughts given to passengers when being designed. Too cramped. Two people could not pass each other. They had to back away to end of room so other could pass. Shower and toilet were unacceptable in size and location. Wash basin on vanity at bedside is inane. Read entire member review >>
Having cruised on various ships I felt that the cabins were smaller than the other balconies that I have experienced. Also, I feel that the price only reflects the other amenities of the ship. It will always be more expensive to cruise on a new ship. We did not have any trouble with flooding however further down our hall there was significant flooding due to some unknown problem. It even soaked the carpets in the hall! Thankfully we weren't caught up in this and had not problems with the functionality of our cabin. - It was very quite when all the doors were closed - so much so we missed the announcements for several things. This was a cabin with the bed by the door so we may have not had such space issues if we got one of the cabins with the bed by the balcony. All in all it did not effect us terribly. On vacation you worry less about that stuff!!!! Read entire member review >>
I had 12547 to to start. The cabin stewards use the door directly across it for laundry maybe?? The best part is you are near the vending machines.
I then moved to 12129 which was an inside. It was in a perfect location, very minimal noise. Read entire member review >>
Baby's first cabin. Only one person can walk in the cabin at a time. Thurtaie bathroom is a joke, use the curtain to block the view but not the sounds of the toilet stall, which is seperate from the shower stall. On the plus side, plenty of storage room, nice size balcony, and a good room location. Read entire member review >>

Great cabin location. Elevators were hard to get, but we walked the stairs most of the time. My parents were in 11317 aft cabin and had terrible vibration and it was loud from the sound of the ocean below and with the flat back of the ship was also hotter as there was little to no breeze on their balcony. Ours was definitely a more prime location. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 12152 was in a great location midship so not too far from either stairwell or lifts. Love being port side especially when leaving Miami and also when entering Nassau. The deck was a great height for everything too. Read entire member review >>
Don't remember cabin # but was supposed to be an upgraded balcony, was forward, they all looked the same to me. Much lower ceilings give a claustrophobic feel, egress is bad because you have to walk the whole length of the ship to get to the stairs/elevator. Sink faucet is too big for the bowl, couch/bed for third person puts their head in the toilet area. Surprised by the poor design. Read entire member review >>
Larger than we'd expected, given all the negative comments we'd read - we were expecting a shoe cupboard, but the rooms were more than sufficient. There's plenty of storage, and - though we found the split-bathroom a bizarre design choice - we were able to work around it.
The only negatives were a locked safe in the balcony cabin (which never got unlocked despite us calling Housekeeping), and a broken reading lamp in the inside stateroom, which was hanging off the wall due to it having been nailed in place. It was fixed with screws a few days into the cruise.
The only other problem we had was a smell of rotting veg/poop on the balcony, the day we hit Cozumel. Presumably, this was when the ship was burning its solid waste, and the wind was not in our favour... Read entire member review >>

It therefore stands to reason that they will have a favorite cruise line or port of call -- in other words, they are "fans" and will sometimes take offense when a brand new member has arrived on the scene to bash a cruise line.
