This cabin was less expensive due to having an obstructed view because the lifeboats are being stored a little below and to the outside of the balcony. We were curious when booking the cabin about exactly HOW obstructed the view would be--this is your question too, I'm sure. The view was obstructed, although not completely. You could still see the ocean/views, although not as well when sitting in the chairs on the balcony. And the lifeboats definitely got in the way of taking unobstructed photos from the balcony (you could always see the tops of the lifeboats at the bottom of each photo). But for us, those things don't matter (just crop the photos!). The reason we get a cabin with a balcony is to escape...have time for ourselves....and this cabin/balcony provided exactly that, at a little less cost than some of the others. Absolutely worth it and we would get this cabin again! Read entire member review >>
The cabin was great. Plenty of space and a large veranda which was partially obstructed but that was not a big deal. There was a large lifeboat directly in front of our balcony so we couldn't look down to the water, but the view was fine. Many people in higher cabins were also complaining that the lifeboats blocked their view so we were happy to have gotten a great deal. There are just 6 small-medium drawers so plan on storing things in the over-bed cupboard or closet. The bathroom was great, lots of storage that mostly went unused, a real glass enclosed shower and the nightlight. Read entire member review >>
Always neat and practical. I don't remember so few drawers though. There were only four drawers and Celebrity has done away with the nice bed side tables with drawers for the little stuff. Also, the closet is sideways and difficult to manoevre, special as our door kept sticking. Balcony fabulous. Bathroom is excellent. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was billed as a balcony with obstructed view. There were lifeboats below us but the view was not bad. We got a very good rate by selecting this cabin and the positives outweighed the negatives. We also did not spend that much time in the cabin. Read entire member review >>
Obstructed view veranda - tender racked just off our balcony blocked view of the water. No big deal. Cabin was very well kept by our attendants. Storage was adequate. Climate control effective. No noise issues. Mattress could be better. Read entire member review >>
We had two cabins. Both were well maintained. 6206 had an obstructed view but still had sunlight on the balcony. A lifeboat was hanging low outside the balcony so you cannot view the water directly at the lower level of the ship. Basic cabin.1622 Celebrity Suite. Nice size balcony. Lovely decor. Perfect butler service. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was adequate in size and storage space. We knew in advance that we had booked an obstructed view balcony cabin on Deck 6, so weren't surprised by the lifeboat view. Since we are budget conscious travelers, we feel we got value for the price paid. The bed was comfortable, good linens and the largest bathroom we have ever had. The design of the shower stall was great with plenty of room. The amenities like shampoo, conditioner were good BUT the quality of paper goods like toilet paper and facial tissues is awful (single ply sheets of TP break apart and are worthless and blowing one's nose was a painful experience). Cutting this corner isn't up to Celebrity's standards. Read entire member review >>
We first got a cabin on level 6, stateroom with veranda 2D They had obstructed views. The obstruction was actually huge life boats, so I'm glad we upgraded to deck 9. Our cabin was great! Perfect view and the stateroom attendant was wonderful. It was supposed to be "close" to the elevators, but we didn't hear anything....... ever. It was very quiet. We could hear the dance club some times, but it never bothered us. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 6186. Balcony view is obstructed by lifeboats & tender boats. Typical of other small rooms we've had on other ships. Bathroom was slightly larger than most with a decent sized shower. Reasonable but not great storage space. We stored stuff in suitcases under the bed. The room was very clean and all of our needs were met by the staff. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 8123 was fantastic. This is the first time we never went aqua class. The cabin is pretty much the same. Comfortable bed, large veranda great views. Would request this cabin again. Read entire member review >>
6294 by number, at stern end. Listed as "obscured" Was not lifeboat obscured (see main body of review) but downward, not outward view, obscured by extensive solar panels.
Well soundproofed and quiet. Bedtime reading lighting could be improved on.
Door could be made to stay open when full extended to allow access for room service, suitcases in and out, etc. Read entire member review >>
