Cabin 8345
Nov 2016
We were in cabin 8345 which is the last balcony cabin on the port side and it features a “kick-out” balcony. We love the extra real estate from the extended balcony which allows you to look down the entire length of the ship instead of having to lean out of the railing to look forward. It also gives some extra room for seating. The bathroom layout is among the most efficient of any we’ve seen on all the ships we’ve sailed. The space is better utilized that other ships allowing plenty of room to stand with the placement of the shower and toilet. There are plenty of cabinets and shelf space and even the trash can is tucked away. The shower controls are really nice with the water pressure and hot/cold controls separated so if you need to turn off the water during your shower, it comes right back on at the same temperature as when you turned it off. The shower is small, but functional and includes sliding glass doors so you don’t have to worry about shower curtains sticking to you during a shower. Inside the cabin there is a good sized closet, but the dresser / drawer space is somewhat limited, just three of them. So we learned a trick from a fellow Celebrity traveler by purchasing 12” x 12” collapsible cubes that we place in the cabinet above the bed. This cabinet can easily hold 8 of these cubes and we’ll put our underwear, socks, t-shirts and other stuff in there. Another great tip is to get a wall hanging, canvas shoe rack and hang that on the bathroom door. We’ve used that for most every cruise we’ve been on. We usually try to book an aft cabin because we enjoy the vibrations from the engines which helps us sleep, Also, being at the rear of the ship is generally quieter with little hallway foot traffic outside the cabin. Being on Deck 8, the vibrations are quite gentle up here and I do love to sit out and look forward as the ship moves through the waves.

Simply Amazing! By: Gishua_
. We were in 9215, the first cabin on the forward side of the hump. Balcony is huge, wind was not an issue even though it was very windy a few times on this cruise. Room did not seem dark because of large balcony as some have been worried about on the forums. Bed was near balcony but I think I like the bed near the bathroom better. Room was in great condition and kept exceptionally clean.

Cabin was mid ship. kept very clean by Jose our room Stewart. the only complaint is that you could hear the DJ and the dance music every night from the Martini bar area. It was quite loud. We were so tired every night we fell asleep anyway. Balcony was a good size without any view obstruction.

Great Cruise By: EK1
Cabin was good. Great balcony. Really large. The only issue we had was that settee was very close to the wardrobe. This blocked the access to one side. We prefer the open type wardrobe as there seems more room for clothes. The suitcases went under the bed no problem. The over the bed cupboards are roomy but not the easiest to access however no real complaints about the cabin.

We had a lovely cabin with a larger verandah. The bed was extremely comfortable and we slept really well. The cabin was at an optimum temperature using the air conditioning to our own preferences. The shower room was really well planned with very nice fittings. There was plenty of wardrobe space for both of us and our large suitcases fitted out of sight under the bed. The cabin was immaculate throughout our stay. Many thanks to Kylan the young man who took extremely good care of us.

Cabin 8281
Jun 2016
The cabin was very well maintained and nicely decorated with not a lot of wear for its age, 4 years old. But... I didn't like the bed next to the sliding glass window, I prefer the seating area to be next to the glass. We had a nice big veranda and could see 90 degrees not the usual 180 degrees in a veranda cabin. When in port if you sat on your veranda the cleaning of the Lido deck splashed water on you. The cabin steward met all our needs but after the first 4 days he disappeared. And the cabin was a little back of the opening for the elevators and the atrium so you could hear all the activity in the atrium till About 10:30 p.m. outside your door. The starboard side had opening and closing glass sliding doors to cut off the noise from the elevators and the atrium.

Great cabin. On slant near hump means larger balcony. Near lift bay but not disturbed by noise. Good size room with seating area closer to entry and bathroom and bed near balcony which is ideal layout. Lie in bed with lovely view and room to get changed etc with easy access to bathroom and wardrobe in living area. Adaquate storage and room under bed for suitcases. Level 8 was a good level with level 4 & 5 having the main bars, dining room, cafe and auditorium and level 14 for buffet bistro, pool, gym etc. Quiet room with no noise from night time entertainment. Would choose this room again.

Apr 2016
Perfect in every way. Our cabin was a 1A balcony on the hump. I was impressed by the bathroom! It was so contemporary and tidy. We do a lot of camping in a pop-up camper, so we are very used to close quarters and the importance of good design. Also, my husband is an architect. Suffice it to say that we had virtually no complaints about the size of the room, its design, cleanliness, or anything, really. Just perfect. The ONLY caveat I would mention is that the extra 6 feet or so of space that a 1A balcony on the hump gets you is not really that big of a deal. We booked a 1B balcony for our next cruise. That's all.

The cabin was adequately spacious and well layed out with few bottlenecks. The bathroom was also well-designed and worked well. Pity that shower gel in not provided unless you have a suite - amazingly stupid but the cabin steward will go and steal one from the top-deck if asked.

Balcony large and plenty of room. The bathroom(head) was as large as I have ever seen in a cruise ship. Cabin steward was adequate. Their was a mix up of wine and liquor I had ordered in to the cabin. Guest relations squared it away promptly. The mattress was VERY comfortable!

Cabin 9292
Dec 2015
We had a Veranda room on the 9th deck. The only question I have about the room was that I wish someone had thought change the arrangement around a little. As you come into the room I wish you would go directly into the bedroom area and the sitting area would be near the sliding glass door. Light really bothers me when I'm sleeping. Okay another comment. I don't know who the designer of the room was but if you are putting a slide for drapes up and they do not meet in the middle but are designed to overlap some at least have the part that some light can get through facing away from the head of the bed. Again, light REALLY bothers me when I'm trying to sleep. Rarely do I sleep past daybreak. The Steward we had, Harry was fantastic. If he saw us walking to our room he would stop what he was doing and opened our door for us. The room was always cleaned on time and spotless except for our crap we had laying around. We both have breathing machines for sleeping. I don't know why but cruise ships NEVER put receptacles near the bed. We asked for an extension cord. Used big magnetic clips to run the cord over the ceiling to the a surge protector that we put behind the bed on the floor. Both machines plugged into it. Pretty slick especially what we have done in the past. Nightmarish. I called the 1877 number on the day of the cruise and asked if they had UK style receptacles on the ship and was told they did. My computer and phone charger are UK style plugs. On the way to the cruise terminal, I told my wife we needed to go to Best Buy to get a universal adapter in case the person told me the wrong info and I was stuck without a way to charge my computer and phone. My spidey sense told me something was not right with the info I was given. Bought a universal adapter & thank goodness I listened to my spidey sense. They had European style receptacles not UK style. They are different. VERY different.

Cabin 8197
Jul 2015
Our stateroom is 8197, A1 category, the highest balcony category. It has a deeper balcony, that can fit 4 people very comfortably. The cabin is large for the 2 of us. This suite has a large sofa, that would turn into a bed for a 3rd person. The main bed seemed bigger than queen size. The mattress is comfortable. After a few nights of kinked neck, our cabin steward brought a special pillow which was very very helpful. The bathroom is a good size. The walk in shower is more spacious than other cruise line. It is easy to turn around. Counter space is adequate. And lots of cubby storage for our stuff. Couple complaints I have with this cabin is lack of drawer spaces for clothes, and lack of hooks and clothes line. There are only 3 big drawers, and a normal size closet. For 10 days, we got by. We wash a few items by hand. But there is no place to dry. There is no self-serve laundry facility. For longer cruise, I recommend one brings a light collapsible compact hanger with many clips. Like to have more hooks in the bathroom and around the suite. It is convenient to have places to hang hats, light jacket, scarves, bags, miscellaneous items you use everyday. especially when there is not enough drawer space or space in the hanging closet.

Lovely, stylish & clean, well maintained cabin. Cabin steward did a fine job. Obviously space is tight as 4 of us share, but you're never really in the cabin much to worry about space. Bathroom seemed a little larger than other lines. Always plenty of fresh towels & shower products.

Disappointed By: Andiesmom
Cabin was nice. Very nice bathroom with roomy shower and a good amount of storage. Very comfortable bed and decent closet. Lacking on the drawer space for clothes. Couch was very uncomfortable for sitting. I can't imagine someone sleeping on it. We had to request ice and tissues. No chocolate on pillows at night and no towel animals.

Cabin 8252
Jan 2015
Cabin was excellent. First cabin astern of the starboard hump on the 8th deck. Close to atrium elevators so not a lot of aisle walking. No noise issues. Attendant (Michelle) was outstanding. This cabin has a huge veranda so you can get sun or shade depending on your preference. It also affords considerable wind protection as it is astern of the hump. But other than those two conveniences, with just the standard deck chairs and a small table it's mostly wasted space. It could easily accommodate lounge chairs or even a round dining table. At the very least foot rests. Without the right furniture to utilize the space we felt the 1A balcony wasn't worth the extra money. Would probably opt for a 2A -- deck 7 on the hump -- in the future and spend the $60-$80 in Murano.

Wonderful cruise By: Fluffypants
The cabin is located on the corner of the hump and starboard, in a prime position as far as we were concerned. The balcony is extra deep enabling us to seek or escape the sun as we desired. The bed is located near the balcony allowing us to lay back and watch the sea go by. The headboard is towards the front of the ship so you look towards the back.The cabin is located midship and near the elevator and stairs. It was quiet and we only heard the music from the atrium when the door was opened.

Reflections on Reflection By: likestorelax
Cabin: 8285. Best appointed balcony cabin we ever had with the best bathroom. Better than mini-suites we had on Princess. I thought the cabin had enough storage space but my wife said there could be more. Anil, our cabin steward, was the best we ever had. He did a fantastic job and we had towel animals in our room most every evening. My only complaint was we were on Deck 8 portside. Three decks below us on Deck 5 is an outside smoking area. Often as I sat on our balcony I could smell cigarette smoke wafting up. Also one evening near midnight, a group of reveling smokers broke into a rendition of Sinatra's 'My Way' and woke me up. They were often loud at night and I could hear voices and this was with the sliding door to our cabin closed. We have had many balcony cabins in the past and I never heard as much outside noise as I did on this trip.

Excellent cabin location. It was an "obstructed view" rated cabin. Not sure why, we thought our view was fantastic. With the oversized balcony, it was simply great enjoying breakfast. The bathroom was totally functional and better than other cruise lines we have sailed. The TV worked great and was more than enough contact with the outside world. The internet connection is expensive. We paid $59.00 extra for two hours access. Very quiet at night. We were never disturbed because of noise. The vessel cruised beautifully. We had 4-8 foot seas one day and you would have never known it !!!!!!

Cabin 8345

Reflecting on Reflection By: bobbikins135
Balcony Cabin - The bathroom was larger than I have experienced on other ships and was a very welcome sight. The shower was rectangular in shape and very roomy. No line to hang up washing though! The room was narrower than our friends room which was an inside cabin! The limited space was well utilized with adequate cupboard space. We were at the back of the ship which was very quiet but some distance from the stairs and elevators, so not great for mobility issues but perfect for peace and quiet! However having booked balcony cabin 8345 for the good size balcony and views, it was not the one as advertised in the stateroom plan. There seems to be a major mix up and basically Celebrity have got it wrong!! So beware when booking 8345 you will get 8343 which means it has a restricted view and misshapen balcony which restricts light coming on to it!

Very happy with cabin. Bunk bed which comes out of ceiling is very clever and saves heaps of space. All beds were very comfortable. We were very worried about fitting 4 people in the one stateroom but it was more than adequate. A cabin with a balcony I think is a must, even if you are not out there a lot being able to get some fresh air into the room is a must. The rooms are very well designed to make use of all space, the shower looks small but once inside is more than adequate. There is lots of storage space under the bed also for suit cases etc which was great as we had excess luggage from a month in europe prior to the cruise. We also visited new found friends in one of the suites which was amazing (4103) spa bath and shower on the balcony, massive tv's and entertaining area in lounge room. Rooms are fantastic.

8285 - The Reflection staterooms are comfortable and the bathrooms are nicely appointed. Love the doors that are on the shower rather than a curtain. We were on the angled part of the ship and had an oversized balcony. Very convenient to everything and there was no issue being close to the elevators. The next stateroom balconies were even larger. The best rooms in the 1A Category face the front of the ship and are in one or two more rooms toward the center of the ship. We did wish there were more shelves or drawers for storage. There was plenty of space for hanging clothes and plenty of hangers. The lifeboats were far enough below deck 8 so the view was totally fabulous.
