I'll soon have a new favorite place at least on the Epic. For now, however, one of my favorite places (other than our forward facing 320 Sq. ft. cabin) on the Explorer of the Seas (on which we took all three of our cruises) was the lounge all the way at the top near the stern. You could look down on the pools and the vistas, especially when initially entering ports, were magnificent.
Oh, a little trivia here. Being a history buff on the Second World War and Naval vessels as well as Ocean liners, I once ran across a mid thirties photo of the German light cruiser Karlshrue (sp?) sitting in a bay that looked awfully familiar. It should have. It was the bay at St. Thomas. Nothing there but jungle behind it! It was anchored alongside a supply ship to the opposite of where today's pier lies.
