Open/Closed Balconies on Epic

Recommended Posts

OK, I just came up for air after drooling over the pictures of the cabins on The Epic ... but what is a closed balcony v an open balcony???? Could well be on overload here and missed those pictures!!!! And I will also go on record for being ready to eat my words that I would have no interest on sailing that ship LOL what a difference a day makes.

What many considered ugly in appearance, the top hat area above the bridge has all of the suites and courtyard villas. A ship within a ship? There are no suites or cabins forward below the bridge, and almost all of the aft cabins are BAs. Also for those who wish to have slightly larger balconies, the corner cabins were the ship juts out a bit to starboard and port appeared angled off, not to mention the balconies appear larger to the front on most decks. There are all kinds of little positives.

 

The public areas are still a bit sketchy, is that restaurant under the top hat on the lido deck the buffet, or something similar? Where exactly is the casino? Is that area to be filled on the lido deck the main swimming pool area?

 

I believe the closed balconies are like a little tunnel with walls narrowing the view, whereas the open balconies have no walls. Similar to the Panamax ships NCL already have, the front side balconies are closed.

Like the hump on the RCCL ships?
