The Epic’s smallest cabins, marketed to solo travelers.
If you’re traveling alone, the Epic’s 128 Studio cabins are perfect. Just don’t expect too much space. Brilliantly designed to offer everything a cruiser needs in a room in just 100 square feet, the cabins include a king-size bed and all-encompassing wall unit with a built-in desk, storage space and a sink. Sleek and contemporary, the wall unit runs nearly the entire length of the back wall of the room and has shelving units and two sliding doors that conceal more storage space. To the left of the built-in sink are hangers, along with a safe and the life vests. There’s also a storage box under the bed that can hold more items, as well as additional space to store your empty luggage during the voyage.
Along the wall unit is a tiny desk, which offers just enough space for the glasses and the ice bucket, and maybe a laptop – but definitely no food tray. There’s a bench too, but the space between bed and desk is so small, it does not really fit to sit comfortably. Above the desk is a television that faces the bed.
The designers of the room definitely had some fun with the lighting. In addition to standard lighting, which is well thought out, there is additional “mood lighting” that can be turned on with a few buttons near the bed. As you can see from the photos, this colorful and dramatic lighting can be set to bask the room in such colors as red, night blue or a sunny yellow (the red being the “romance setting,” we’re told).
The bedroom is small but functional.
There is no separation between bedroom and bathroom, though thankfully the toilet is in its own completely closed-off compartment (in contrast to many of the standard cabins on the Epic). The shower stall and and sink are in the room. The shower itself is quite small, with just enough room to turn around in.
Opposite the door is the closet unit, taking up most of the wall. This unit has two sliding doors with hanger and shelves. In the back is a safe and the life vests. Under the bed is a box with more storage space as well as space for the luggage.
