Well appointed cabin, nothing incredibly spacious but extremely well maintained. Aqua Class staterooms have an upgraded spa shower that's really terrific -- and a terrific upgrade. Beds were firm and comfortable, balcony was spacious enough, and the special touches (afternoon hors d'oeuvres, special tea water, constant bottled water) were very nice. Read entire member review >>
Big room for disabled, although neither of us are. 1.5 times bigger than normal. We loved being assigned this room by Celebrity and would love it again! Balcony also extra wide. Quiet location, close to steps going to spa and quiet area at front of ship where you can get a morning tea in your robe. Only issue is the shower. Wish there was a drain catch running along floor in front of shower since water can end up flooding entire bathroom. After a few days we got smart and used two beach towels on top of each other as a way of "damming" up the water. Read entire member review >>
We were in cabin 1602, an Aqua class cabin on deck 11. For those who know Solstice class ships, this was on the starboard side, the first cabin after the hump. As I mentioned earlier we had never done Aqua before but I would say we liked it. The cabin and the bathroom were a touch bigger, the shower has extra nozzles that spray your crotch and legs (I have no clue why) and they are on a high deck, which is a good or bad thing depending on how you look at it. For me, it kept my weight in check (at least a little) because I never use the elevators on a ship, only stairs. When dinner is on deck 5 and the cabin is on deck 11 that’s climbing six flights of stairs three or four times a day. Sometimes more. That will get your heart going.
One bad thing
See, we did find something we don't like but we aren't sure it can be fixed. If we have one criticism of the cabins on Solstice class ships it is the lack of storage. Compared to the Millennium class which has a bunch more drawers and shelves they are horrid. We miss the storage. One of the benefits of cruising is only having to unpack once but with the lack of storage you could easily find yourself living out of a suitcase. Not sure how they could retrofit them but I hope Celebrity takes note when they design the new Edge class of ships coming out in 2018. Read entire member review >>
Cabin with standard floor size, but 50 % larger veranda. No obstructions of the view to portside and front, but restricted view to the aft.
Storage space: sufficient.
- wardrobe with 2 sliding doors (one is always closed!) and only a rod for hanging garments.
- hard-to-reach cabinet above the beds with 2 doors swinging to the ceiling, enough space for shirts, sweaters etc.
- and 3 drawers in the cabinet beneath the TV set (32", wall-mounted).
Bathroom with many small storage spaces, excellent shower cabin with sliding doors, shower head with massage function, and body shower jets. Read entire member review >>
Chose port side--Only docked portside twice out of all the ports. Aqua class cabin--a joke. Might have a private dining room but the cabin was severely lacking.
Small cabin. Poor lighting. Weird overhead bed shelves had to climb on bed to reach them Not enough storage. Closet dark hole. Bathroom shelf space non existent.
Not interested in hearing how hard a life the cabin housekeeper had. Tipped her in excess of the pre paid gratuities. No service at all last day on board. Read entire member review >>
Veranda Cabin - I purposely chose this room because the larger balcony was on an angle which offered a much nicer view. The room was not clean, the bathroom had hair from the previous guest, and smelled like sewer water. The neighbors next door were screaming in the room and woke me up at 1:00 am the first night so I requested a room change.
Veranda Cabin - I was switched to this room for the second night. It was the same category but felt like a downgrade since the veranda view was bright orange life boats. I requested a room change again.
Aqua class - For the third night, I was upgraded to Aqua Class on Deck 11. I was disappointed because this room was the exact same size and still did not have the view of the original room I had chosen...this deck has an overhang with beams that obstruct your view. Plus, the thermostat was not working and I had to ask the room steward a few times if they could please fix. Read entire member review >>
Cabin, obstructed and same price as other paid for non obstruction. Cabin was exceptionally small. But it was kept very clean, tidy and great service by Mario, the steward. Read entire member review >>
Love the bathrooms and shower - lots of space. The storage space for clothing in the cabin is lacking. Putting a storage area above the bed is less than desirable. The bed was comfortable and our steward kept our room spotless! Read entire member review >>
This cabin sits below the Solarium Jacuzzi (on deck 12), and was very quiet. We did not experience ANY noise of deck chairs, being moved, or hear foot steps from above. There are several larger pieces of lawn furniture next to the Jacuzzi, which would be difficult to drag around, and may minimize the noise above. I was worried about noise from the motor of the Jacuzzi, and even with the balcony door open, while in port, I could not identify noise from above. This cabin is Starboard Side with Bed near the bathroom. Everything in the room, functioned perfectly. The attendants were Lesley and Churchill, and both were top notch. Very Responsive. There is an upscale shower head in Aqua, and shower doors worker very well, so we did not experience any water leaking onto the bathroom floor. This room does have the overhang from Deck 12 above, which limits sun and wind, which we preferred. Read entire member review >>
typical balcony cabin with small sofa sitting area. storage bins for clothes over bed were a little high so not practical to use, unless you stand on the bed. I did like the shower jets and fog free mirror in the bathroom Read entire member review >>
The room had ample storage space. The bathroom was gorgeous. Our cabin steward kept the room clean and constantly brought us bottled water. The added perks of Aqua Class (access to Persian Gardens/Blu) were also very nice. Read entire member review >>
Loved our cabin for location to spa. Very quiet at night. Have traveled Aqua class before so no surprises there. Everything stated in the brochure was there. Cabin attendants were exceptional thanks to Standly and Avi!!! They work so hard to give us a clean and accommodating experience.We tipped extra because they earned it! Read entire member review >>
I liked having the bed on the veranda side of the cabin. It allowed us to dress near the closet and bathroom. Unfortunately, the drawer space for storing clothes is too limited. The closet is sufficient as is the bathroom storage space. Our cabin stewards were the greatest! Read entire member review >>
The cabin was fantastic and the staff were very good. The facilities that came with Aqua class were excellent.The bathroom was very large and had a shower with seat. there was plenty of room for my powered chair and the balcony was ramped and very good. We had to ask for a kettle but were able to have one and tea making facilities. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 1597, was very functional, we had plenty of room to store our effects. The shower stall had plenty of room and was very modern. The view was wonderful and as we were travelling with family, Martin our attendant gladly took the divider down between the two balconies.
The room was cleaned every day. Not one complaint about our room. Read entire member review >>
Great room but terrible location. This cabin is below the Oceanview Cafe which juts out over the rooms. Due to this overhang, there is never any sun. One of our cabins looked out to the basket that is used to clean the glass on the balconies. Very distracting and not a great view. The room itself was very nice and clean. I have read other reviews where people say that there isn't a lot of storage. I have no idea where they got that from. There's a lot of closet space, overhead space over the bed and a couple drawers. There's enough clearance underneath the beds to put the suitcases. The bathrooms are very nice. The showers have glass doors and are corner showers which make them seem bigger. They even have a little bar for you to put your feet when you are shaving. The only thing that is missing is a couple shelves in the shower for shampoos, shops, etc. Read entire member review >>
Balcony is underneath an overhang. No problem unless you want a lot of sun. Fairly quiet. Heard deck chairs early in the morning, but only because we had the verandah door open. Read entire member review >>
Deck 11 port side. Our stateroom was just below the jacuzzi on deck 12 and every night when they cleaned it, we could hear the noise. I mentioned it to Guest relations and after that it was a lot quieter and it didn't wake me up. Also the rooms are never in the sun as the deck above comes over the balcony quite a bit and blocks the sun. Other balconies on this deck are better is they are not indented (ie the ones further forward or back in the ship) Read entire member review >>
Room 1552 has an unusually large deck that is angled allowing for spectacular views. There is a piece or equipment (glass washer) that hangs near the balcony, but it does not really affect the views or feel of the balcony. Read entire member review >>
Cabins on Celebrity ships very uniform. The 15 or so extra square feet in both the room and the balcony, especially the balcony over the Millenium class ships, make a big difference. Shower was too cramped for my liking and kept hitting my are on the shower door using the toilet. Level 11 is preferred over 12 in my view as you don't have the big overhang right above you. I was on port side near the rear. Was overall very quite, low foot traffic, no engine noise, no odd smells or sounds. Read entire member review >>
