We never received the "gifts" for the room category except for the warm bottle of wine with no glasses or ice. There was 1 hair dryer in desk, no umbrella, no ice bucket, fruit was old/bananas brown, no complimentary bag, cotton balls and swabs, no wine glasses, shoe shine, horrible bath towels, no way were they a 100 present cotton, they were like sandpaper. Save your money and go with a regular Balcony. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was as expectations but was a bit tighter than what I remember on my previous cruises with Celebrity. Perhaps the particular room had a little less room due to the one wall jutting out perhaps for services. It was manageable, had a rattling glass partition on the balcony and although reported was not repaired. Noisy during the windy nights. Read entire member review >>
Quiet Aft location. Foot stools on deck. Daily fruit. Sail-away champagne, daily canapes (can get vegetarian if you ask) Good storage in closet, cupboards above bed and drawers in desk. No line to hang clothes in bathroom. Great attendant - Piedade! Read entire member review >>
Typical balcony cabin, the included daily aperitifs were not very appetizing, and we asked our steward to quit bringing them. There is no longer an assistant to the cabin steward, and the service suffers greatly because of this cutback. Our steward seemed to be trying his best, but he just had too much to do to provide the level of service we've had in the past. Read entire member review >>
Roomy cabin with lots of nooks and crannies to store things. Plenty of room under the bed for our large suitcases and extra storage above the bed. Bed itself firm but very comfortable. TV in need of replacement [showing its age with missing pixels in a line across screen]. Bathroom well laid out. Shower good. Read entire member review >>
My cabin was 2112. The nice thing about this cabin was that it was pretty quiet. I did hear some anchoring nose once I think, but it really wasn't a problem. There is some peeling paint on the "roof" of the veranda that I noticed, not a big deal, but it was there and was noticeable. I traveled Concierge Class. From my experience traveling regular Veranda style, I don't think it's worth the extra money. We never used the robes, the canapés weren't that great (I don't eat pork though, if I did maybe I'd think it was better), and the binoculars in the room were more like opera glasses, so I'll have to think hard about spending the extra money in the future. My next cruise is aqua class, so I'll let you know if I think it's worth the upgrade.
One more thing about this room, it was absolutely fabulous if you like to go to the pool. All you have to do is step outside your room and you were practically there. Awesome location! Read entire member review >>
Very tired and certainly did not feel like luxury. Curtain tie backs frayed. TV screen damaged- black line across picture.
Door hanging off cabinet. Poor paintwork on balcony-
When reporting these we were told that they had all these issues on 'their list' and the cabin was due for refurbishment. - So why was it in use and full charges being made.
The issues were all dealt with and by the last day - our cabin was as we would have expected to be when we boarded. I hope the next occupants were grateful !!! Read entire member review >>
Cabin 1027 had adequate storage with the over-bed storage areas. Suitcases fit underneath the beds!
Cabin attendants: Elvis and Arvin! Wonderful. Provided extension cord, extra ice daily. Read entire member review >>
Our Stateroom Attendant, Bernadeth, was outstanding. The veranda room was identical to the last two cruises. This time, we were offered more "perks" with concierge class. I enjoyed the fruit and canapes in the room, but I doubt I would do concierge service again. Read entire member review >>
Just the right size, with enough storage space for two. The bathroom, while not big, is very cleverly planned, and provided just the right amount of space and practicality. Read entire member review >>
Concierge balcony, starboard aft. This cabin was quiet, with staterooms above and below us. It was a short walk to the aft stairs and elevator, and on the same floor as the library. The cabin was spacious and well laid out. We still had storage space left, even though we overpacked. We would not hesitate booking this cabin again. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was perfect for us. We were unable to unpack for the 12 days and store our suit cases under the bed. We liked the beds and slept well. Of course, loved having a balcony. Read entire member review >>
This is one of the cabins that protrudes from the ship's standard beam, and coincides with the placement of the main elevators and entryways to main public areas (buffet, entry/exit to pool area, etc.). Because of its placement it has a deeper than standard balcony. Being on the uppermost deck with cabins (deck 12) the balcony is also entirely covered by the structure that is the floor of the Ocean View cafe, above. You might think that this would make for lots of noise, with busy dining traffic above. We found this not to be the case. It was extremely quiet, with the exception of an infrequent trolly / rolling sound which was almost imperceptible and would certainly not wake anyone. For those wanting a lot of sun on their veranda, this cabin would not be a great choice because its cover extends well beyond the edge of the deck rail. The location of the cabin could not have been better. The cafe is just a few steps away, as is the main pool, pool bar, and elevators. In the morning I could grab a cup of coffee and tea for my wife and be back in the cabin within about three minutes. I could also hit the pool bar in the same amount of time. Drawer storage is not exactly plentiful, but if you use your luggage as an extra drawer and place it under the bed you'll have more than enough space. The closet offered more space than we needed. All in all, I'd gladly stay in this cabin again. Read entire member review >>
More spacious than anticipated. Excellent bathroom - size, facilities, products.Balcony was a good size with nice chairs but the weather stopped us utilising this often.Interactive TV was great.Bed very comfortable Bathrobes sensationalLocation - bit of a walk to dining and rec areas but good idea due to food intake!!

We were on 9th deck. We squeezed into 190'. The room was in good condition. It was very quite we did not have any noise from adjourning rooms or hallway. The bedding was very nice. Attendant was very good and keep room neat and her visits were scheduled when we would not be disturbed. Read entire member review >>
Concierge balcony cabin 2149
This cabin has an oversized balcony/
However, it is located below the buffet restaurant and the sound of moving furniture can be heard very early in the morning and periodically throughout the day. Read entire member review >>
We loved our cabin location. When we booked we tried to pick adjoining cabins but none were available so we were able to join the decks with two cabins side by side. Rooms 9350 and 9352. We were not all that far from the elevators. Elevators in a good location on the ship. Lots of storage, lots of hangers, large bathroom with good size shower. Our cabin had the coach next to the window, 9352 had the coach next to the closet. We did like the coach next to the window better. Read entire member review >>
Quiet. Good closet space. Bed near balcony. Not enough drawer space as this ship has storage above the bed. Even though we were on deck 10, we could feel the engines when the ship was coming into port. We did feel more movement here and we thought that was due to the forward cabin location but we could feel it even when we were midship. Read entire member review >>
* Smallish, but adequate
* Bed very comfortable.
* Plenty of closet space.
* 5 small drawers not quite enough, but lots of space in overhead compartments over the bed.
* Veranda smaller than expected but ample for two people to sit and watch the sea.
* Since the room was on floor 12, there was an right above the veranda that blocked the daytime sun. The overhang was caused by the Sky Deck, which was wider than the rest of the ship. The overhang was a mixed blessing.
* Room attendants were wonderful and kept the room clean, beds made up and even folded up clothing left around the room.
* Bathroom was great. LOTS of storage and a great shower with sliding doors.
* Towels were large, soft and thirsty
* Robes were fine, if you're a robe person
* Illuminated telephone display was very bright when all the lights were out. I had to cover it up each night.
* Only two 120V electrical outlets in the room If one has lots of chargers, one should bring a three plug block and/or an extension cord. No outlet next to the bed. Read entire member review >>
Cabin - 1005. This cabin was pretty far forward but we had smooth sailing and did not feel the motion of the ship very much at all. We enjoyed this cabin location.
Our friends were in 1075 and this was a hump balcony with the extended balcony and also a quiet location. They enjoyed the larger balcony.
The other couple was in 1538 which was handicap accessible and had plenty of space in the room and bathroom. He had plenty of space for his scooter. Read entire member review >>
We enjoyed our stateroom, Concierge Class (C3) 1277 on Deck 10 (bed near the verandah). The location aft of the atrium was ideal as we always wanted to ride on those amazing glass elevators rather than the less impressive forward set. Choosing a stateroom aft of the atrium also means the overhang from the public decks above is one deck higher (further removed) than it is from midship staterooms.
This was our fourth cruise with a verandah stateroom and we were thrilled. The layout is truly awesome. I simply can't explain how they've made 200 square feet feel so spacious. A very comfortable space with tons of storage throughout. And the bathroom is almost shockingly large. We loved the furniture on the verandah and the fact that the sliding door can be fixed in any position on its track by rotating the handle to lock it in place. There's nothing like listening to the sea as you fall asleep. Absolutely the best stateroom we've had. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 9261, port side (sunny balcony). Great location. Quiet room, quiet hallway. Close to mid elevators. Bed close to the closet, so the living area is next to the balcony door. It's located just four decks below the ocean view cafe. It was also a concierge class cabin, so a bottle of champagne was sitting on the table in an ice bucket. Great views from the balcony.

Quiet location, unobstructed view almost 180 degrees in all directions, very comfortable bed near entrance, hard sofa, nice balcony. Great bathroom and shower head. Needed extra hangers, good fridge kept our water cold (steward cleared out the minibar). Read entire member review >>
Comfortable room a little short on storage space. Very quiet hallway. The balcony was a little noisy when neighbors were outside. The voices seem to echo, and were louder than they really were. Read entire member review >>
1251 beds are closest to door; sofa next to veranda
1253 beds are closest to veranda; sofa is closest to door
Excellent locations off elevators
Close to hump of ship so those on veranda humps can see your veranda more than if ship was straight down the side design. Read entire member review >>
