We really enjoyed our inside cabin.Step out the door, round the partition wall and we were in the glass encased bank of foyer elevators in the middle of the ship. The partition wall kept the noise away from us. Yet, so close to easily access anywhere on the ship from a central point. A two seater couch and table were in an inset wall so out of the way. The beds pushed together with nightstands on either side still allowed for additional room on the sides. Our tall suitcases fit perfectly in the space on either side of the couch. The vanity was plenty large for all my stuff. Only think lacking was a lap drawer; however next to it was a cabinet holding the television with storage above and below the TV. four doors on the closet allowed for hanging space (with lots of hangars provided) for both of us; then there was a bank of maybe 6 drawers under the opening for the safe behind one of the closet doors. The bathroom was large enough with a rectangular shower that was larger than most of the showers we've encountered on other ships. Ample storage in the bathroom. We never saw our room steward (maybe on day 1 and one other time); however, the room was always done up for us while we were away. It was like a secret fairy came in and took care of all our needs. Hair dryer and two robes provided as well. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was inside #8085, mid-ship on deck 8. Nicely organized inside cabin and located very quiet section. We didn’t spend much time in our cabin, just take a shower and sleep. This 12 days Mediterranean cruise, only 2 sea days, so almost every morning, as soon as our ship moored at the pier, we were out of the cabin to explore town. Perhaps, if we had a balcony cabin, we wouldn’t have enough time to enjoying a balcony. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was nice but it was under the speaker on the 10th deck. If you like to listen to a lot of bass and drums at 10:30PM while trying to sleep by all means select underneath the 10th deck speaker locations. Read entire member review >>
Our room itself (inside cabin 9018) was fine; small as expected, but plenty for two people not spending hours awake in the room. Storage space in the bathroom on inside cabins is pretty much two small corner shelves; the research we did from other cruisers absolutely saved the day as we'd brought the clear plastic shoe rack for the door ($6, Walmart) that easily solved the storage problem. Hallway noise was non-existent, and we never heard anything from other passenger cabins. The cabin IS next to a steward pantry, which apparently has metal stairs in it - you can hear the occasional steps being taken. It's also beneath the spa, and seemed to have drains from the spa area passing the walls, so you had the occasional water feature sounds coming from the walls. We found it relaxing (although it probably encouraged the odd nighttime bathroom trip or two), but I'm sure there are pickier travellers for whom these sounds might be disturbing. We found the mattress to be a bit firmer than we liked - I sleep on my side, and only got a good night's sleep once I put a pillow under my hips.
I also could find no information about the tvs in the rooms, so here: they work great for what they are. BUT they HAVE to use the provided remote (no using a tablet or smartphone as another remote) and you cannot add a portable media drive to the TV (there's only one USB port on the TV, labelled 'Service', and the TV won't respond to the addition of a media drive).
The room is 4/5 floors above the main theater, convenient at night; it's the opposite end of the ship from the MDR and buffet, which is less convenient for breakfast. You do get a chance to walk off your meals though, so the trade off is good. 8-) Read entire member review >>
For an inside cabin it was more spacious than we expected. There was plenty of storage space. The bathroom was small but the shower was placed lengthwise rather than round which gave you more space, The bed as with all Celebrity cabins was very comfortable. Read entire member review >>
Rust in the grout in the bathroom and a moldy shower curtain. Having been now on Celebrity many times, they have cut back on the amenities. No cotton ball/Q-tip container. Instead, you get nothing unless you ask, and then you only get a 2-pack of cotton balls and Q-tips. Also, no pen and pad of paper in the room. The TV room service program was not working, so they sent someone with another TV. Well.....it's not the TV, it's the programming. Duh! The battery in the in-room safe was dead, so the safe did not work. This is right below the pool deck so if you're in your room during the day, you hear the thumping of the poolside bands. It was quiet at night. A tip to everyone: If you're walking down the halls to and from your room, please respect other people's quiet time and keep your voice down. No one wants to hear your loud conversation and screaming kids. Read entire member review >>
Since it was a short trip and another trip to the Caribbean, we took an inside room (7056) because we like the darkness it provides. Plenty of storage and space was fine. The bathroom was a bit tired with dark stained grout. Shampoo, conditioner and soap was good as well; loved how hot the shower would get. Even better how cool the room could get. I've never had a room on any ship that I was cold in and had to turn it a little warmer. I had no problems with sound from the halls but I do sleep with ear plugs. The bed & pillows were good however there was a couple times the bed linens were torn. Not that I care however, room attendant did a towel animal & chocolates, one night only which I thought was odd. I never saw our room attendant but my husband did twice. Read entire member review >>
Cabin looks like secluded but noisy due to working area between room and elevator. Better off to get a cabin between 2 cabins. Even though was in perfect location...just pick one a few cabins away. Room steward below average. Did not straighten room. Ran out of toilet paper and shampoo. No extra towels or blanket. Sheet too small for bed. Room steward never asked if he could do something for us other than leg us in room after rom key stopped working and sent us down to guest services. Read entire member review >>
we liked our room. We stayed in a balcony room on our last cruise and that was nice for the view, etc., but this is a fine way to go if you're looking for something less expensive but still comfortable. The bedding was very good, and we are picky about that. Read entire member review >>
Average size cabin for Millenium class. Bathroom/shower were fine. Good location for theatre, gym, reception and choice of elevators. Generally very quiet. Fine if you don't mind not having a window! Read entire member review >>
Our cabin as stated was on Deck 9 forward and inside. On the whole the decor was bright with light wood panelling making up the doors to the wardrobes and drawers. At the head of the bed was a wall to wall mirror which made the room feel much bigger than it really was. The bed was two singles pushed together with one duvet. The mattresses were incredibly soft and comfortable. The bathroom was bright and clean. The shower was very good but could have done with a tad more water pressure for my liking. Water temperature control was excellent. Overall the standard of the room was very good but there were little indentations in the wardrobe doors and fridge door which were dust collectors and were obviously missed by the cleaning staff. This was soon rectified by having a quiet word with them. At last a decent sized TV and good interactivity where on demand films could be had and the ability to check ones onboard spend. The biggest downside was the door in-between ours and the neighbouring cabin. It completely ruined any soundproofing that there may have been. Conversations could easily be overheard.

Depending upon how you use a cabin, the inside cabins are by far the best value. We avoid balcony cabins because no cruise lines seem willing to address the smoking problem and the inconsiderate bad habits of a few people make balconies undesirable to us. Read entire member review >>
Great storage. The closet was large and the room steward got me more hangers so I didn't have to double up. Very quiet area whereas people on the 9th floor were complaining about the noise level at night because above them is the pool area, disco area and the gym. Something to think about that cruising in the cheap cabins might be the better deal. Read entire member review >>
The beds were hard, pillows were flat and our cabin guy slacked off huge on his cleaning duties.
There were streaks on the mirrors, cookie crumbs on the carpet, toenail clippings and dust covering every corner, the bathroom wasn't very clean, but everything worked fine.
i didn't expect much - as yes! I do realize we were in an inside cabin!! I just hope people who paid for premium cabins, got premium service. The cabin doesn't really matter as we never spend much time in it anyway... Read entire member review >>
