Great location all the way in the front of the ship, port side. Great balcony. Great Bed. Great Bathroom. Large glass-walled shower. Good storage for everything. Luggage slides right under the bed.  Read entire member review.

Cabin 1507 Aqua Class. Shower was wonderful, plenty of storage space. Balcony was great. suggest larger and more insulated ice buckets (too small and ice melts in an hour).  Read entire member review.

The worst of the worst. Thin walls, Banging, gym up on your head. Get ready for no sleep at all in this nightmare cabin. Makes you want to literally jump ship.  Read entire member review.

A really nice cabin with a decent balcony. One word of caution, you are directly beneath the running machines in the Gym, so there can be a little noise breakthrough at times. It was never a real problem for us but if you are super sensitive to noise, choose a cabin either further back or over on the port side  Read entire member review.

Great location, Persian room above, no noise, except from noisy neighbors.  Read entire member review.

Room 1512 in Aqua-class. Why oh why did they locate the treadmills over the staterooms. They were not directly over our room but probably over room 1514. We were on this ship a couple of years ago and the treadmills were closer to the bow of the ship. I understand that if they were over the bow of the ship they would be over the spa's treatment room. Stateroom itself looked brand new. The Hansgrob Shower Panel is awesome; if you don't have a bathtub then this shower system is the thing to have. Room is outstanding and attendants are great. Great lighting system that you could dim and turn off from your bed. Well appointed room and a great value for the money.  Read entire member review.

This is a great stateroom. we got some great photos from our balcony particularly the sail in to Kotor and the sail out of Venice. it is in a quiet location, no noise above or below, the only noise came from next door who banged doors and must have been rearranging the furniture! To get to the restaurants requires a fair bit of walking but we were fine with that and always enjoyed ambling back at our leisure. The Spa is very close and we enjoyed the Persian Gardens a number of times The room has good storage, the cupboards above the bed are very reachable and hold quite a lot. The bed is massive and very comfortable. The best part of all is the shower, and all the jets that spray out at you - i want one of these!  Read entire member review.

I had an Aqua Class (AQ) cabin on the Celebrity Solstice.  For cabin selection, on the specific itinerary I was on, I'd have preferred a STARBOARD room.  The port room I was never on the pierside when pulling into a location for the entire 10-day cruise!  I like seeing the city from my room versus always facing out to sea.  Ships don't always use the same pier or pull in the same way every time but for my cruise it was definitely a disadvantage to be on the port side.  There was actually a bit more storage than I'm used to.  Some cabinets were added above the bed which really did help a lot.  Noise was never a problem and in general I was very happy with the entire experience.  Read entire member review.

Limited drawer and closet space, quiet location, lovely looking cabin with excellent bathroom  Read entire member review.
1524
There was lots of squeaking/creeking/banging around noises in this cabin. We assumed it was because of the pool deck located directly above... A light sleeper will definitely want to bring their earplugs, as an insurance policy for a good night's sleep.  Read entire member review.
1527
The cabin was very clean with sufficient storage space. The large LCD TV is a big plus comparing to the small tube TVs we had with other ships. Balcony was nice size with two nice lounge chairs and small table.  Read entire member review.

Cabin - Aqua Class 1537 - Good size, quiet (spa was above us, cabins below us). Adequate store space, nice size bathroom for a cruise ship, great shower!  Read entire member review.
1538
The cabin was very spacious and comfortable. There was plenty of room in the bathroom; the most I ever experiencd on a cruise. This was likely because we ended getting assigned to a wheelchair accessible cabin. The balcony had plenty of room. The bed was quite comfortable. Most appreciated was the fact that the cabin was very quiet and there were no engine vibrations. Our location was a very short walk to elevators and was ideal. Everything related to the cabin was about as good as it could get.  Read entire member review.

Spacious wheelchair accessible cabin with automatic door opener (a nice feature for the disabled cruisers), upgraded amenities, great veranda, excellent location.  Read entire member review.
1539
Really close to the realxtion room - easy to go along for an early morning cuppa in your robe. Also benfits from not being in the "Overhang" section of the ship so clear view out to sea from the balcony. Bed right next to balcony.  Read entire member review.

We stayed in stateroom 1540 on Level 11 as part of the AquaClass experience. The room was clean, the facilities very good with plenty of storage, comfortable bed with nice pillows. The shower and toilet facilities are excellent with ample space We did experience excessive movement during the crossing to the Caribbean due to high winds, it affected us with motion sickness. The room is not far from the escalators but we heard no noise The balcony with view is fantastic. The only issues we had were wearing of the rubber seal on the sliding door this did create a little wind noise and the dividing screen had a piece of paper to hold in position also to avoid knocking in the wind....minor points overall a very nice stateroom.  Read entire member review.

Loved the Solstice by canadianont
Aqua Class cabin # 1542. LOVED it. Clean and quiet. Close to elevators but no noise from passers by. Convenient to get to the spa, the gym, and the pool deck. Across the hall is a crew service door but we never experienced any noise.  Read entire member review.

Amazing Week on the Solstice by eastoftheboston
Across from elevators, NO noise whatsoever from the elevators, it was just a convenient location. Directly below the spa retail store which has little foot traffic and is closed at night, so NO noise from above, or below for that matter. No extended overhang or window washing equipment, so the view from the balcony was great.  Read entire member review.

Bed closer to door, decent balcony but too windy to use most sea days. Bathroom and shower were great, plenty of room.  Read entire member review.
1545
Lovely cabin with very comfortable soft-top bed and soft pillows. Nice bedding, soft colors and tasteful room decor. Ample closet and storage space. Nice size balcony with comfortable lounge chairs. Aqua Class shower and bath products were wonderful. Hallway noise was very bad and the cabin doors slam loudly when they close shaking your cabin. Our cabin (1545) was located one deck below some sort of kitchen area where there was dishwasher noise all night long and a lot of furniture movement all day and night. This was really bothersome and complaints to guest services did no good at all.  Read entire member review.

1605. Great balcony was deeper/longer then normal.. room under bed for luggage. Left some clothes in luggage due to lack of storage space. Storage above bed in cabinets. Drawers and closet small. Location was great as far as aft elevators. Able to get to deck 14 or 5 quickly. Took stairs up to Ocean View/pool area most often. Very quiet from hall way. Heard high heels a few time from pool deck.  Read entire member review.

1630
Fairly quiet cabin under cabins on deck 12. About six cabins aft of the elevator area. Steward closet is across from 1632 and we occasionally heard some noise about 6AM. Although you could faintly hear entertainers from deck 3 in the hallway, you could not hear them in the room. Access through the balcony partition to 1628 is easy, but access through the partition to 1632 is very restricted by the strut going up to deck 14. We enjoyed the large overhang as it kept the rain and sun off our veranda. Directly above the gap between lifeboats 15 and 17.  Read entire member review.

CABIN, Aqua Class, well located, fair size, well serviced, good bathroom. Good underbed storqage for bags. Overhead locker good value, balcony had comfortable furniture and of course good views. More money of course would get you more, but this cabin was good value.  Read entire member review.
1635
Room 1635 was nice and the cons were all things I could live with. We rarely saw our attendant and sometimes his cleaning timing was off. He did tell us that it was his first time working Aqua Class, it showed. The bathroom overall was great, nice layout and roomy even for my 6'1 guy. The shower was a bit testy, "massage" feature didn't work, well, it did if you wanted to hear a high pitched noise. One of the closet doors also didn't slide well. I'm sure we could have reported it, but the purpose of the trip, avoid drama. We found our room easy to get to and generally quiet. It was also easy to walk up to the buffet, but preferred the elevator to go to Blu.  Read entire member review.

Great location for AQ, not under the pool, very quiet. Loved the bed by the sliding doors.  Read entire member review.
1640

Balcony room 1640 on the 11th floor was quiet and the bathroom seemed spacious compared to the other ships we have cruised. The balcony had a nice table and chairs with foot stools. Not a huge amount of storage space, but we were able to slide our travel bags under the bed, which worked out really well. The TV remote had a piece of cardboard and tape holding the batteries in place, kind of tacky for what I paid for this room. We paid for an Aqua class room for the benefits listed, however several of the benefits were only provided after we asked our stateroom attendant to provide them?? The stateroom attendant service was excellent, and was provided twice a day. Additional room service requests were handled very promptly.

As previously mentioned, stateroom 1640 is near the aft part of the ship. Liked Aquaclass a lot and would definitely book it again. There was an overhang that would work better for Caribbean or hot weather cruises. Did not get much sun even though we were on the sunny side of the ship for the crossing. The room had plenty of space. Loved the bathroom. Very modern with the glass cabinets and Hansgrohe shower.  Read entire member review.
1640
The stateroom was very quiet. Our veranda was a decent size (it was the typical size found in most rooms) with two chairs and footstools, as well as a table). There was an overhang that kept the sun off the deck most of the day (our preference). We had to call Guest Relations three times to reset the television.  Read entire member review.

Celebrity is a Winner by Daisy Ray Cruiser
1646 Aft Starboard Penthouse Deck 11 Across from crew space but quiet location(not under pool) Standard Balcony, support strut to right but non-obstructive Some distance from elevators.  Read entire member review.
1648

The staterooms on the Solstice class ships are designed really well. They seem spacious even though you know they are half the size of a typical hotel room. The decor is clean and elegant with granite tops and blonde wood. Lots of storage, including a large cabinet above the bed.
The bed is very comfortable and has a memory foam topper.

While the cabins do not have connecting doors, you can have the staff open the glass divider on the balcony so there is private access between the two rooms. On deck 11, this works as long as the cabin doors are right next to each other since angled support beams are placed every two cabins.

The bathroom is the highlight of the stateroom. The shower is roomy and in Aqua class there are additional body sprays along with the handheld shower head. The tall cabinet and several drawers provide a lot of storage places for toiletries. The only complaint is that the sink faucet is large like a kitchen faucet and gets in the way. Though we were able to push it back toward the mirror. Another issue is that the shower stack is hollow so you can't put anything on top without risking that it will fall inside and you will not be blue to retrieve it. We learned this lesson on the Equinox so I make sure to spread the word (the Equinox staff actually retrieved an item for us, given the boarding issues on our sailing, I don't expect that the Solstice crew would have done the same).

I do like that they provide Qtips and cotton balls, as well as very pleasant soap, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lip balm and lotion.

Aqua class cabin was distinguished for a much better bathroom design -- shower was comfortable and had water jets that provided a massage with your shower. The balcony featured reclining lounge chairs with foot rests. Aside from those features, the cabin was the same as Celebrity's Concierge class.  Read entire member review.
