Default Where will my cabin be?

e are looking at a booking on the epic for Thanksgiving. Best balcony prices are on deck 8. I know about the lifeboats and the uncovered balconies. my priority would be to have a covered balcony with the bed close to balcony not too obstructed. of the cabins available cabin 8116looks the best.

Cany anyone give me the exterior photo of the Epic with this cabin outlined? I have searched thru all 22 pages here and none of the links seem to be close enough for me to pick it out,

Thank you!!!

Default thanks Mike

I found that part of the thread after I posted, but the big pix makes it so much more visible. they have 8112 avail as well which also has the bed configured near balcony, do you think that would be preferable? Looks like the window washing machine is below that one

Default Cabin 9150

My cabin is 9150. I have gone through this entire thread and cannot find via the plan whether this cabin's view is obstructed by the lifeboats or not, or whether it is a roofless cabin or normal! Please please please can somebody help me?!!!!

Your balcony is covered. Here is the link. http://boards.cruisecritic.com/showthread.php?t=1523109

The lifeboats do not obstruct any views except directly down. Deck 9 is better than deck 8 since the lifeboats basically stick out from deck 7

Default Bed in cabin by door

OMG! I have so been looking forward to my Med cruise at the end of April. Like others, I have been reading alot. Our cabin on the Epic is 12172, and we had no choice as my company booked for us. I called to try and change but most cabins are full on this cruise. So, I am very disappointed on the comments "do not get a bed by the door!". Since probably half the ship have this layout, does this mean all us "bed by the door" people are going to be very unhappy with our cabin? I hope not!

No, not at all. Don't worry about it. The room is perfectly fine

I have been doing so much research on this,because we wanted uncovered. I might be wrong (God, I hope not--I've changed cabins 3 times) I ended up choosing 9278. BTW, I'd like to thank you for some great reads about this ship. We are so looking forward to it.

hi,
ive booked stateroom 9278 for september 2012 would be good if you could let me know if its covered if your travelling before me as i really want covered balcony .thanks for your help

What about 9004 and 90012 - any news if they are a) covered and b) in front of or over the lifeboats?

Thanks so much!

I picked cabin 12103 because it looked like a larger balcony. Does this one have a larger balcony? Any obstruction or privacy issue I should be aware of?

TIA

We were in 12087 and we loved that location. I checked the deck plans and it looks like your cabin has a slightly bigger balcony as it is right on the cusp of the bump (therefore giving you a tiny bit of curve). The next 3 forward from yours up to the one we were in, have bigger balconies.

http://www2.ncl.com/cruise-ship/epic.../12#tab_detail

As for obstructions or privacy, you should not experience any issues at all.

Have a great trip!

Default Thnaks for this thread!!!

Hello all! Just book a Transatlantic Sailing on the Epic in Oct. I was assigned cabin 11311. It's the very last balcony cabin in the aft. Anyone else stayed in that cabin or have any info about it? Anything would be greatly appreciated! A location pic and opinions about this cabin would be a BIG PLUS TOO! Thanks!

Based on reading this thread, I had our stateroom on deck 8 changed. Now we have cabin 11019. Now I am worried that this in one of those balconies that is enclosed with a big oval for a view. Also, is being forward a negative?
Thanks so much

In my signature area there is a link to information on hull balconies. You will see that 11019 is not enclosed, however 11017 next to you is

Yes, there is a 9022, but it is an interior cabin.

12103 has a slightly bigger deck than normal rooms, your bed is by the balcony and you overlook open balconies below.

11292 is fully covered, the bed is near the balcony, & you overlook open balconies below. I don't have a clear shot of 11292, but I do have a view of 11291 which is in the same spot but on the other side.
