The accommodations on Epic are designed
to attract people with a wide variety of
tastes, financial resources and traveling
needs. They range from ultra luxurious to
practical and utilitarian. They can be
divided into four broad categories - -
suites, deluxe balcony, balcony and inside.
With each category are several
Within the Balcony Cabin category are two specailized sub-categories as well as the standard balcony cabins. The first
sub-category is Spa Balony Cabins, which give the guests special access to the ship's spa. Family Balony Cabins are located near the
kids' area. Some can accommodate up to four people while others can accommodate three.
All of the balcony cabins are 216 square feet including the balcony. They have curving walls, which give the ooms a stylish look and
which breaks away from the box-like atmosphere sometimes found in modern cruise ship cabins. Like the inside cabins, they feature
bathrooms that have been divided into their component parts.

accommodate up to four people).
There is consider able variation in the type of Suites (not shown)
available on Epic. They range from the 852 square foot Owner's Suite
to the 22 square foot Penthouses. One thing all of these statrooms have
in common is luxury. Indeed, just the access to the Epic Club,
Courtyard Grill, and the Courtyard pool and open deck make these
cabins a true first class experience. They comprise in NCL's words "a
ship within a ship."
