AquaClass Veranda staterooms feature floor to ceiling sliding glass doors, a sitting area with sofa, two beds convertible to queen, vanity, bath with shower and Hansgrohe shower panel, television, veranda, and a private mini-bar. AquaClass guests also receive complimentary access to the Persian Garden and Relaxation Room, exclusive access to Blu, an upgraded room service menu, a personal spa concierge, and a daily delivery of bottled water and tea.
The cabin was located at mid ship on 11th floor near elevator. Very quite but a long walk to Persian Garden we had access. Many nights, we enjoyed watching reflected moon light shining on the sea at the balcony. So beautiful!!!!
Another note: Since we loved our first time Aqua class experience so much, we wanted book another cruise, on the ship, for my entire family. I have three grand children. Celebrity said no kids allowed for Aqua class. That is way I have not seen any kids on our floor. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was nice and always well-maintained by our attendant. The closet for us was fine, but it would be nice to have a few extra drawers to put things in. The drawers that we had were deep which is just not all that practical. Overall, everything worked fine. We enjoyed our balcony and sat out many of the days we had at sea.

Sherwin the Room Steward, EXCELLENT! His 15th year on a cruise ship!
We had aqua class 1635 cabin, nice big cabin and balcony with chairs and ottomans, really nice. My husband loved the Persian gardens, he was in there at least twice a day. We all loved Blu restaurant. Small atmosphere and great view. Aqua class we felt was worth it. Also we walked right on the ship due to aqua class, no line. And walked right off ship no lines. We got to eat in blu for breakfast on final day, which was nice to have a sit down breakfast. Not rushed. Read entire member review >>
cabin was fine for us. nice balcony with plenty of space. we had no issues with storage, plenty for us. frankly compared to other cruises the bathroom was quite spacious and yes....the shower was AWESOME! very happy with cabin and enjoyed the extra perks. VERY clean, sheets were great, steward perfect. Read entire member review >>
The room itself was nice. Two adults and two kids 13 and 11. Tight, but we made do as we did not want to spend more. So I start to notice thumpa thumpa music vibrating through our cabin on occasion the first few days. Kinda like when you pull along side a car with those loud bass setups and your own car starts vibrating from it. After a little investigation, I find out our room is right above the Reflection Theatre. All the entertainment practices during the day and you will hear it if you're in a forward cabin on the 6th level. One of the treats I relish on vacation is being able to take naps during the day. I'm not a great sleeper at night and daytime naps are a rare treat. Felt really robbed of this during the cruise as I got no peace and quiet in the mid-late afternoons. To their credit, the cruise director called me back to discuss and finally connected the day before the cruise was over. Received a $600 credit toward next cruise. Not bad, but would have rather have had quiet. This is a design flaw with the ship. Nothing to be done about it. My fault for not pressing the issue earlier in the cruise.

Clean, well appointed, flat screen TV, average size.
Storage is adequate.
Bathroom is typical.
I do like the shower.
It offers large rain head and multiple jets.
And, it has closing plastic doors.
The location was great. Read entire member review >>
Noticeable is the lack of drawer space. While I always thought closet and drawer space was ingeniously crafted on most ships, this edition seems to have a smaller amount than usual, ie drawers in the bedside tables and/or around the vanity in the bedroom. Read entire member review >>
Our Stateroom attendant went above and beyond to ensure that our stay was comfortable and the service he provided was exceptional.
Cabin: We stayed in Room 2148, Aqua class forward midships deck 12.one deck below Oceanview Cafe. Balcony was big enough for 2 chairs and small ottomans with table AND 1 lounger; it was covered and was shaded from sun parts of days depending on sun's location. Bathroom was large and the shower actually had room in it with shower doors that close and don't leak water all over! Drawers in the bathroom were great for makeup etc. Balcony seemed larger than on most ships. We loved Aqua Class, and overall it was worth the additional cost. We didn't use the Persian Garden at all. The food in Blu alone was worth booking Aqua, but when you add on the early boarding and the bathroom products and that shower. (Did I say it had additional jets). I found the AC to be at exactly the right temperature inside the ship. Sometimes, the difference between outside and inside is too pronounced, but I thought the ship managed the temperature differential real well. Inside the ship was always comfortable, but never too cold Read entire member review >>
Great location. Quiet. Beautiful balcony. This was our first time in Aqua class and the shower and bathroom did not disappoint. There was no gross shower liner sticking to you in a tiny shower. The bathroom and shower were spacious. It was a really nice addition to our trip. Read entire member review >>
Aqua cabin at the front of the ship and right under the spa. We did not hear any noises but could feel the movement of the ship if the seas were not calm. The bed is near the balcony. The storage over the bed is awkward and I cannot see most elderly being able to use them. The bathroom was a standard size cruise ship bathroom, but having a special shower head was nice.

Cabin OK for 2 adults, not a lot of hanging space, no bath (tub), not good for 3 adults. quiet cabin, ship quite stable, the 2 adults in the main bed slept OK, not so for the 3rd adult.
Toiletries provided were poor quality Read entire member review >>
Beautiful balcony, comfortable loungers, great shower, just not kept to the standard we have come to expect on Celebrity. We had to fight to get the two bottles of water that should be delivered daily. After our complaint guest relations sent us a fruit basket which was nice , and housekeeping sent a bottle of champagne. I just feel that if the cabin had been properly sanitised we may not have been so very ill. Read entire member review >>
This was our first Aquaclass room. We've previously booked Concierge class and there was really no improvement except use of the Persian Garden (although we couldn't always use the tile lounger; too many users at times). We also had the opportunity to eat at Blu, but it wasn't any improvement to the main dining room. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was standard Aqua Class room. Quiet, with mid-aft starboard location. Nice size bathroom for a ship, with excellent shower. Hansgrohe showerhead and GREAT door. Iputu our Cabin Steward was superb. Attentive and efficient service. Bed was very comfortable, with nice linens and a choice of pillows. Closet has a set of lower bars, providing plenty of space and hangers to hold 2 weeks worth of clothes. HVAC in room worked well. Read entire member review >>
Cabin first class, bed v comfy, bathroom good, balcony a bonus.
I must say the two cabin stewards we had were top class. It was a pleasure to return to our cabin each day they swept in and returned us to 5* without fail. Read entire member review >>
It was extremely spacious and had adequate storage. The balcony wasn't huge but it was big enough for two The bed was extremely comfortable with huge pillows. There was fresh fruit in the cabin every day and afternoon canapes waiting for you when you came in. It was kept extremely clean. The bathroom was large with special toiletries. There was no need to take any unless you wanted to use your own. The shower was amazing. Constant hot water, power rain shower with jest of water continuing down the shower unit. Brilliant! The cabin was at the front of the ship, near to the elevators but it was extremely quiet. The only thing with the position of this cabin was that since the restaurants were at the stern of the ship you had a long walk to eat! Still, it built up an appetite! Read entire member review >>
This was a "Bump Out" cabin around the aft elevators. Same size as others but it had a bigger balcony and it faced forward so we could see where we were going instead of looking backwards. It had plenty of room if you put your luggage under the bed and utilized the compartments above the bed. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was spacious with a large veranda and bathroom. Plenty of space for our belongings. Each day we received fresh ice tea and fruit. The room was always clean when we returned. We wee always greeted by name by Sunil, our cabin steward. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 1524 is an accessible cabin which is very large and well maintained. The cabin was very clean The balcony is also large with 2 lounge chairs. Our cabin attendants were excellent Read entire member review >>
Good cabin in a quiet hallway. Balcony was unobstructed and furnished with 2 chairs with foot stools and table big enough to enjoy room service meals. The bed is next to the balcony leaving good access to the closet. Storage over the bed was useful but awkward to access if you shorter than average. The shower was terrific. Read entire member review >>
This is a wonderful cabin. It is in the front of the ship very close to the Relaxation lounge. It is below the hair salon so it is very quiet. However, it is at the other end of the ship from the food, so be prepared to walk. Read entire member review >>
Comfortable and for a ship cabin, reasonably spacious. Contrary to some reviews we found more than enough storage space for our 10 day cruise (we took 2 large cases, a suit carrier and a holdall between us) Read entire member review >>
There is so much storage space however some of it is hard to reach as it is above the bed. I loved that this cabin had zero noise form above us I think it is a meditation type room in the spa above us. The access to the Persian Garden and the relaxation room is AWESOME! You enter by a "secret" door near your cabin and that way if you are getting a treatment or enjoying the facilities you can sneak around in your bathrobe. The towel seemed nicer as did the bathrobes. There were binoculars which were not that great and two umbrellas. The afternoon food was sub par and we didn't care for the daily tea nor the free Champaign that awaited us as we do not consume alcohol. The shower head was cool and massaged your entire body with side jets or the huge rain shower over head. It was very Quite and relaxing. It is very near the elevator so there is noise form that at busy times. We loved being close the stairs so we could move about the ship easily. You do feel the motion more the higher up you go (it is deck 11) and because it is further up on the ship but we ENJOY that motion. There was a slight obstruction of a white stair casing that is used by no one ever but for emergency or to perhaps clean? It is at the top of the balcony. Read entire member review >>
lovely cabin. bed nearer the bathroom. Very clean, enough space for 2 though the overhead cupboards above the bed were a bit awkward to reach. We loved the walk-in shower and good pressure in the rain shower head Read entire member review >>
Cabin 1546 was a great cabin for us. The bed is near the bath which is something we prefer as it allows the sofa/lounge area to extend out to the balcony with a more spacious feeling. We immediately move the small table in front of the sofa off to the side (by the patio doors) so that we can move about freely. Our cabin was as expected since we'd cruised in Aqua just three weeks earlier. However one of the big advantages we found was the location near the forward elevators. Because there are no aft elevators on the Solstice class ships the mid-ship elevators tend to be very slow. We found the forward elevators quick to come and get us to our destination with few stops in between. Read entire member review >>
Perfect location. We had 1545 the last time. Same cabin set-up. If you have a voice of cabins get the layout with the bed closest to the veranda which gives you all the free space in one place. Much better for dressing and getting ready. We had chosen AquaClass since they started offering it but the exclusivity hasn't remained so. (See my Review of the ship). It is just not worth the extra USD300.00 plus that is charged on a 7 day (upwards of that depending on time of year). We don't get any break on spa treatments but we usually are such regulars that they do that for us anyway. So for anything less than 10 days we won't even consider above basic veranda. Same size footprint and the big difference of the pitiful hors d'ouvres and lip balm - well, not worth the value. Over the years the cabin service did not vary from balcony to concierge to AquaClass.

Room 6133 was larger than expected, extremely quiet, and always kept immaculate. We really enjoyed the balcony. Absolutely nothing to complaint about and lots to compliment. Read entire member review >>
