This a spacious 170 square-foot stateroom with a generous view of the ocean. You'll appreciate contemporary artwork, a mini bar and a fully-loaded entertainment center along with Constellation's many added amenities.
We opted for an Oceanview Stateroom and we weren’t disappointed as our cabin had a massive port-hole that was practically floor to ceiling in height. This was a lovely touch as I was expecting quite a small window. However, we were situated in one of the cabins towards to the aft of the ship that had been converted from social space in the last overhaul. I’m aware that not all Oceanview staterooms are like this and so some research is needed if you wish for a cabin with a similar window. The cabin itself was quite spacious and a lot bigger than we were expecting, with plenty of storage facilities. We were both quite impressed at how much storage Celebrity had managed to work in. There was even room for your traditional safe and mini-bar fridge with additional storage space above them!
The bathroom was small considering at how big the rest of the room was but even then, Celebrity managed to incorporate lots of storage solutions into the bathroom so it never felt tiny or ‘full of stuff’. Again, many people complained that the shower cubicle was too small but we didn’t find this. I am quite a big guy but I managed to fit in there perfectly with ample room to move about. I would say that it was roughly the same size as most UK showers. Shower pressure was good even when the ship was stationary but the water seemed a little ‘too’ treated and made my skin feel unnaturally smooth and shiny.
Nevertheless, the best part of our cabin was the bed. Originally, I was concerned as we were told that the bed was a Queen’s size, which is just a bit larger than a single bed in Britain. However, I completely forgot, American ship, American sizes. Hence, the bed was much larger than I had anticipated and was in fact bigger than my King size bed at home. I had so much room in the bed that I couldn’t tap my partner on the shoulder goodnight, even with my arm stretched out. It was divine! What made it even better though was the fact that the bed was the most perfect bed we had both ever slept on. I cannot begin to describe how comfy the bed was. It was firm but squish-able, soft but supportive. It was just amazing! We liked the mattress so much that after the cruise we tried to buy one as we knew you could buy them but to no avail as they’re only available in America. To top it all off, we were greeted with an excellent turn-down service every night with chocolates on our pillows. Read entire member review >>
Neat and tidy and cozy for the two of us. It would have been nice to have a bit more room between the foot of the bed and the wall, but there was no other way to configure the room to achieve this. Then again, we were out so much this really was not an issue. Read entire member review >>
Adequate space for sleeping and storage. Couch is basically a large chair so does not allow more than one person to sit at a time. Bathrooms are tiny and metal cover over toilet roll can scrape your hand. Night light in bathroom is nice feature. Large window allowed for good view when in port with shelf to store items. Mini bar can hold your own water or canned drinks to keep cold. Robes for getting out of shower nice touch. Plenty of room under bed for suitcases. Read entire member review >>
This room is at the very front of the ship facing forward. The porthole window was very large and in front of the bed so you could see out while laying in bed.
the room is quite a bit larger than a regular room. I think it might even be bigger than the balcony rooms we have had in the past. There is a fridge, flat screen TV, hair dryer and plenty of storage in the closets. The bathroom was kind of on the smaller side but the shower was a little larger than a standard ocean view room.
being in the front of the ship you might feel a little more motion than normal but it was not a big deal to us. Also when docking you hear the bow thrusters doing their job too. If I had one negative it would be that the serve door outside in the hallway needs to have the dampener adjusted as it slams when the crew come in and out of it. I would not hesitate to book this room again for any length cruise. Read entire member review >>
Being the most forward cabin on the deck, the positioning of the cabin allowed for extended length of the cabin. That being said, the room was sparsely appointed and despite a lot of dead space, storage was minimal at best. The small sofa near the window was torn and worn with obvious stains. The beds were arranged in a single king configuration, however, the linens did not properly fit the bed. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was fine and functioned well. There was some vibration, unusual at the very front of the ship. Seas were calm so we had no issues. Porthole is large and I think the room was larger because we had no balcony. Read entire member review >>
Perfectly adequate. We don't spend much time in our room on holidays so don't need luxury accommodation. Beds were so comfortable, clean linen and towels replaced so frequently.
We were happy with our choice. Read entire member review >>
The room was nice and comfortable. The room attendant, although not very personable, did a good job keeping our room clean and maintained. One note, we were near the customer service desk on level 3 and the Martini bar was on deck 5. Because of the open space between the bar and our room it could be loud in room 3108 when people were loud, drunk and rowdy. The room was very convenient however I wouldn't recommend this room if you like to go to bed early before midnight or 1 AM. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was modern, clean and comfortable although there was little room to spare. We had to squeeze past each other to reach the bathroom. Beyond the bed stood a desk/chair in one corner and a double settee in the other. TV channel quality varied, depending on location. Wifi worked well most of the time although speeds were relatively low. We loved the queen-sized double bed. Didn't much like the cupboards as the doors were spring-loaded and those in the cabins around us often slammed - ditto the stateroom doors. Read entire member review >>
One spot on the carpet near the door.Torn (bad shape) mat at the balcony doorRe-painting apparently hadn't made it to this balconyNot impressed that I had to point out to the cabin steward that the safe couldn't be closed, because it was locked in an open state. He got it fixed right away, but the lack of attention to detail was noted. Read entire member review >>
Great Aquaclass cabin. Deck 9 is under the overhang so there no sun issues (unlike Deck 11, where the other Aqua cabins are located). It's also one of the two cabins that have the angled balcony, which makes it about 50% larger. Great design, storage, etc. Would happily book it again. Read entire member review >>
Very nice cabin although there was some early morning and late night noise from the Pool Deck above us. Cabin Attendants were fantastic and we got everything we asked for -- Isotonic pillows, ice all day, extra towels, two copies of Daily Program. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin couldn't have been in a worse position. We were on deck two, absolute last cabin on the port side, right outside the hatch to the crew's living spaces as well as next to a black water( ie waste) check valve access panel that had a foul order coming from it. Additionally we were right under the MDR's Galley wash area so when we got back from our late seating dinner we got to listen to the staff doing the dishes. Read entire member review >>
