Epic Penthouse

Recommended Posts

Looking at possibly moving to a Penthouse suite on the Epic for a Transatlantic. My husband says he’s fine with a forward suite. I’m concerned about the balcony being unusable as we move forward. I’d lean to the aft PH, he’s concerned about vibration at the aft. Please help if you have any experience!

I stayed in an Aft Penthouse on the Epic.  I enjoyed the cabin.  The only issue was walking all the way forward for the Haven lounge, Cagney’s, pool etc.

The forward suites on Epic do not have open balconies.  They have a solarium.  It makes the balcony very usable.

We stayed in an aft Penthouse on the Epic for a transatlantic cruise and never experienced any vibration while underway.  The only vibration I remember was while docking.  You'll love the aft PH.   There is no wind.  Since it is a transatlantic with lots of sea days, you'll be able to spend lots of time relaxing (or napping) on your balcony to the soothing sounds of the wake.

Unless things have changed since we were on the Epic in 2011, the toilet area had a sliding door instead of a curtain. 

Once you go AFT, you'll  never go FORWARD again! 😉
