Great Ship by pointpetre

Everything worked well. The balcony was great. The bathroom was very nice and had good storage. The bed was comfortable and the heating/cooling worked quietly and perfectly. Our room steward was very nice and very good at his job. However, the purpose of the refrigerator was to sell things, not to provide us a useful appliance for our needs. Ice was not provided except on demand. We never asked for it. Room service was a 10 out of 10. It could not have been better.

Larger than normal balcony by about 3 feet in depth. Very quiet, no motion felt. Would get this cabin again in a heartbeat!  Read entire member review.
Hooked on Celebrity! by CruiseMaman
6302: Quiet location at the end of the hallway. We liked that the stairway and elevators were far away, since there was virtually no traffic. Very spacious private balcony, but does not look directly down onto the water due to a steel deck area right outside our balcony. (The deck is an access area for crew only, though, so it's not like people walk by the room.) We knew that our cabin was considered to have an "obstructed view." The view out to sea was unobstructed but, as I said, we couldn't look directly down into the water. We would definitely book this cabin again.  Read entire member review.
When really windy at sea you can hear the whistling of the wind under the bridge extension, but nothing too distracting. Everything else was perfect. The room is located on the 8th deck which has no other items other than rooms on it meaning no traffic going by your room at strange hours. Deck 8 is great as it is in the middle of the other floors so accesible by elevators or stairs quickly.  Read entire member review.

Everything new! Very comfortable and clean. Leather sofa! Veranda sliding door was easy to operate (unlike on RC Oasis of the Seas). Veranda furniture very nice. Plenty of storage even for family of four - including closet space, dresser drawers, bathroom storage and under bed for luggage. In-room safe worked. You could see part of the bridge from this cabin and the outward view was unobstructed. Not too far from elevators/staircases. Interesting layout design is that inside cabins have their own hallway so traffic flow is less congested. Memory foam mattress topper. Odd set of pillows.

Nice balcony and good size bathroom but a little too far foward.  Read entire member review.
Very, very pleased by ElliottKitsap

Stateroom 8146 ("Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom Veranda")

The great:
1. A great location. Not too far from the forward elevators. Starboard side.
2. No public areas above or below.
3. Three decks above the lifeboats, so our view was unobstructed.
4. The stateroom itself was great. Larger than on our previous (Holland-America) cruise, or at least it sure FELT larger - especially the bathroom.
5. Spotless. Everything worked.
6. Our room was ALWAYS made up while we were at breakfast.
7. The closet was really spacious.
8. So was the veranda.
9. The bed was amazingly comfortable!

Picking nits:
1. There was an unattractive carpet scrap being used just inside the door to the veranda.
2. Why are the pillows on the bed so small? They're smaller than standard pillows, and way out of scale with the large, great bed.
3. The stateroom was almost directly across from a crew space, so every time we left our stateroom, we almost bumped into either crew members or a cart.
4. Why does the door to our stateroom open out into the passageway? We didn't figure out to push it when leaving the stateroom until day 4. And the auto-close mechanism on the door causes it to really slam shut unless you hold it back manually.
5. The railing on the veranda was at EXACTLY eye level when you were seated.
6. If we kept the door to the veranda open (and we did - the weather was great), we could hear conversations from adjacent verandas.

Hey, they're teeny, tiny nits, but they're nits nevertheless.

Placement of small sofa too close to closet, otherwise perfect!  Read entire member review.

These cabins are great - good size, amenities, balcony etc.
No problems with it.

Solstice is a Winner! by reginab1979
Very convenient, midship, near midship elevators  Read entire member review.
Small rooms, but hey, its a ship! Balcony was great as you didn't feel as restricted. Had a problem with the overhead elec. outlet in the bathroom. It messed with my water pic. Maybe it was an outlet for a different current. The water pic was fine when I got home. Was worried that when it stopped working after 4 days in the cabin, that it was broken. Not so, but find out about the outlets if you have issues. Beds were very comfortable. Used the fridge to store our stuff from the ship and was careful to replace their stuff each day.  Read entire member review.
Solstice 3rd April cruise by Traveller-man
8269 Deck 8. Close to elevator but no noise. Very clean and comfortable. Bed 9/10. Interactive tv very good, hanging space and storage excellent. Only two minor complaints no foot stool on balcony and the faucet can catch you out when face washing. Would take the same cabin grade again but I would prefer the bed away from the balcony door.  Read entire member review.
Cabin was very cool. Loved my room and my bed. DD loved the pull down bed from the ceiling. Lots of space for clothing and empty suitcases stored nicely under the bed and out of the way.  Read entire member review.
Cabin 8287. Closet parallels the bed which is weird and awkward but it allows more room for the big bathroom which is a plus. Very good location; but it is the first cabin next to the 'bump' so you can't look to the right and see the front of the ship. However since the ship has two bumps on each side like that, few cabins will have the full view to the right and left. Nice sized balcony. I would book this same cabin again!  Read entire member review.

8293 and 8291 are together at entry. Close to rear elevator, past hump. Because of deck 5 jutting out, it was high enough to not be bothered by deck 5 port side smoking area.

8316 8318 Great cabins, enough storage, very quiet, great views.  Read entire member review.
Great cabin, far from stairs or elevators and very quiet.  Read entire member review.
We had cabin 9159 for the week. Overall a great cabin. Location was awesome. Close to stairs / elevator but around the corner so we didn't hear the activity at all. The cabin was extremely quiet. I've had ones in the past that were really loud -- lots of creaking, rattling, etc. but not the case with this one. Also felt very little movement in the cabin. Liked the more subtle, contemporary decor of the cabin. At first, I thought there wasn't enough storage space, but once we unpacked, there was room left over. I think the biggest design flaw in the room was the location of the TV. The TV was a nice size, etc. but it was mounted across from the sofa and did not tilt so if you wanted to watch something while lying in bed, it was difficult. Wouldn't have been a big deal, but since my daughter was using the sofa as her bed, we couldn't really sit on the sofa to watch. Also, the TV had music channels, room service, your photos, account info and even on demand movies. The balcony was a nice size and included 2 chairs that reclined. Bathroom was laid very nicely and the bed was comfy.  Read entire member review.
Found the cabin clean and nice balcony; hallway seemed wider than other ships. It was a good location - midship and not far from elevators.  Read entire member review.
Sweet Solstice by krisfaraway
Cabin was outstanding.  Read entire member review.
Good location. Cabin is regular size. Good balcony. Closet is okay, but safe takes up room in closet. Storage over bed is very awkward. Not enough drawer space. Nice bathroom. Decent shower. Very clean.  Read entire member review.
