Spacious balcony with chairs having a separate foot stool making them into loungers. This balcony where the ship configuration angles out, so nice to have extra space.
Especially nice twin layout to cabin, with overhead cabinets for storage, plenty of hangers, robes, slippers, and plenty of tolietries. Read entire member review >>
I meant to do it before we left and didn't so if Celebrity is reading this, they need to repair the right glass door on the balcony. We had to put a wedge in between to stop it from banging all night when it was windy. The wedge eventually blew off and we had to try to make a new one. Read entire member review >>
This cabin was Aft. About as far Aft as you can get from the Aft elevators. The Aft elevators are really mid-ship. It was a hike from the elevator to our stateroom especially when pushing a wheelchair. However, with that said our stateroom was excellent. It was big, 194 square feet, and a delightful balcony. The bathroom was more than big enough. We a goodly amount of storage space. I like to unpack everything and stow the luggage away. We would have used more drawers for clothing that did not lend its self to hangers. A small price to pay. Our cabin steward, Cruz, was the best--very accommodating. The balacony was big enough for us to have breakfast there. The chairs and table, eating level, was great. Nothing compares to pulling into port while having your second cup of coffee.

It was great. The veranda was great. We spent a lot of time out there watching the world go by.
There was plenty of storage. The bathroom was spacious. Our attendant was great. Read entire member review >>
Location: located aft on the starboard side. It was the normal cabin with bed located by balcony with an average size veranda. Veranda Included two loungers with footstools and a small table. The veranda itself seemed a bit more crowded but was made to look and feel larger due to having the panel opened between our cabin and the friend in 1654. Views were unobstructed fore, aft and below.
Maintenance: Cabin itself had minor issues - main storage cabinet in need of maintenance: cabinet door, in front of the safe, top hinge pulled from side mount allowing door to fall out each time opened. Maintenance in to repair but did not hold. Drawers pulling apart (peg board type connectors). Bathroom door jam loose. We were able to use a knife and tighten screws enough to allow the door to be shut without catching.
Noise: located directly across from a large crew area (crew elevator and stairs) we were surprised at how little we actually did hear the crew door. Yes, it could be heard but not so that it disturbed anything. What we could never figure out was the overhead tapping and mild engine roaring sounds now and then. Our best bet was something from the crew area but no idea as to what. Pipes? Again not horrid or constant but the tapping was perplexing.
Conceirge class: had to request bottle of bubbly included with booking (changed to wine) and wine glasses. Besides the bubbly, our only other requests of cabin steward, Brian, was to remove all from fridge, and provide ice and canapés daily. All accomplished quickly and provided daily. Note: We tend to tip daily (candy bar with money rubber banded to it) on top of pre paid gratuities. The Conceirge, Rita, was young and bubbly leaving longish daily reminders on your phone about evening and next day events to come.
Summary: cabin (love aft) overall was good. Some minor nitnoys but nothing major. We would take this cabin again but would first look for another just because of the crew door. Again, minimal noise but a bit busy at times. Read entire member review >>
The room size is good. There are plenty storage spaces. The size of the balcony is good and covered.The room is located in a very quiet corner and there are little foot traffic in front of the room. It is located on the Resort deck next to the pool area and near the Spa and Gym. Although the room is beneath the Oceanview Cafe and some had complained about noise from the cafe in late night and early morning hours, we had no such issue. Read entire member review >>
We were in cabin 1025 on Deck 10, Sky Deck. This Concierge-level cabin is far forward and perhaps 150 feet from the forward elevators. This would not be our top choice for Concierge class accommodations – we like being closer to the elevators and more amidships – but it was what was available at our price point and was fine. Our cabin was pretty much a standard Solstice-class room, with veranda, a queen bed (next to the veranda, a configuration we prefer), sofa and small bathroom with a shower, no tub. There was plenty of closet space and storage. The cabin was in very good condition, although it has seen a lot of guests since the Silhouette was launched in 2011.
We were not always completely happy with our room steward. It was mostly small things, such as failing to bring our laundry back in a timely way, forgetting to serve us canapés or sparkling wine as requested or accidentally leaving our door open. At one point, our regular steward was replaced by someone else, so there may have been something going on with this particular person. It was no big deal, but it was a contrast to the excellent room stewards we have almost always had on previous cruises. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 1658 was on deck 11. Sort of crazy numbering of the cabins. Our cabin was fine though nothing special. It was a bit of a walk from the elevators. It was very quiet in our area so if you want quiet, this would be a good area. We normally have a cabin mid-ship. The bed was very comfy...not good when you need to get up for an early excursion! We had a simply wonderful steward, Peter. He could not have been kinder or more helpful. I hurt myself on an excursion and he fashioned ice packs for me for a few days. A surprise bottle of wine from Peter was over the top. Wish I could have him on every trip. It was our first time in Concierge class so we did not know what to expect. The sparkling wine on embarkation was nice and was quickly gone. The afternoon canapés were sometimes very odd and not really that great. That said, we did eat most of them. The fresh fruit was appreciated. We never figured out how to hear the announcements in our room...good thing there was no emergency. Also, we did appreciate the unexpected chocolate strawberries from the head chef...nice touch. Read entire member review >>
As i stated above, my cabin was on Deck 12 (Resort Deck) because I wanted to be closer to the pools, especially the pool area in the adults-only Solarium. Concierge Class cabins include the use of a designated Concierge, named Niko, who had office hours on Deck 10 in the Library. The bed was OK, there was adequate storage space in the drawers and the bathroom and I found those storage spaces above the bed that other Cruise Critic reviewers had referred to, but I didn't use them because they were too high for me.

Stateroom itself is good, nice balcony. The location can be a bit noisy. It's located right below the Oceanview Cafe men's bathroom. So you can hear the toilet flush...a lot! Also the stateroom attendant's closet is right in front of this stateroom. If you like sleeping in, forget it. Read entire member review >>
We loved the location of the cabin and the balcony. I would have liked to have a couple of drawers to store clothes in but we were able to hang almost everything in the closet. Luckily my husband is really tall and was able to put his things in the cabinet above the bed. The bathroom was spacious. We enjoyed the couch & table next to the windows.

Beautiful cabin on level 12 and very convenient to elevator but very quiet. The cabin is on the same floor as pool deck and close to outside door. It had a nice size veranda with chairs and foot stools. Large closet and decent storage capacity. Good size bathroom with drawers and shelves for personal items. It is near the stairs so only 1 flight up to cafeteria buffet. Perfect cabin and ideally located. Read entire member review >>
We actually had two cabins as we did a B to B and the second was in Aqua class. Both cabins were the same design. Both had a balcony which was seldom used as the voyage was o the cool to cold side. Beds were comfy and shower amenities were good. he main difference between the two was the Aqua class had a high end shower. A bottle of Champagne was waiting for us on arrival. Attendants were very pleasant and efficient. Cabin was always clean and orderly. Daily crudités were not exciting. Read entire member review >>
We have never been "on the back of the ship" before and were a little leary at first, but I would do it again in a heartbeat. 1210 is dead center in the middle of the back of the ship, on Deck 10 (I could never figure out why the number wasn't 1010) so we had the extra wide balcony with the 2 lounge chairs and foot ottomans. Amazing. It was not a rougher feel than being mid-ship balcony as we have always been in the past. Otherwise it was the standard "Deluxe Balcony" room. Read entire member review >>
Port side, last cabin before the aft facing cabins. The balcony was a little larger than most, and it is a very quiet room. Only time we felt the engines was pulling out of Falmouth. It is a longer walk to the elevators, however that is why we selected it. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was very good but not sure why it was really called Concierge level....Didn't see much difference and definitely not worth the price difference....a few apples, orange, and a pear plus a bottle of champagne seemed to be about the only differences we noticed. Loved the location of the cabin and the oversized balcony with its angle was definitely a plus. Cabin service was excellent and a big thank you to our cabin steward for his impeccable service. I would love the cabin again but wouldn't pay price difference for Concierge. Don't waste your money!!!! No special restaurants or anything like Aqua class.....there should be something for your money!!! Storage was good in the cabin. Read entire member review >>
Cabin had nice shower with curved door and lots of storage. Nice balcony with two lounge chairs and table. We had breakfast out there one day and it was terrific. Stewards were great. TV lots of channels and quite a few free movies. Bed and pillows were extremely comfortable and lots of room around the sides. Every day they delivered little appetizers at 4:30. My husband didn't like them so he asked for cookies and we were delivered a plate of cookies every day. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was immaculate, cabin steward did a great job. We never took advantage of the afternoon canapés because we were never in the room then. Don't like room layout. Most storage is above the bed. Very inconvenient. Much prefer the storage on Millenium class ships. Bathroom was spotless, good shower. Lots of storage, but would prefer more counter space. Read entire member review >>
Port side, forward of midships. We like the Concierge cabin layout with a proper shower cubicle , good toiletries and a balcony. Felt this was a little smaller than others of this class , but no hard evidence for this. Read entire member review >>
Only wish they could put the bed away form the closet. It makes it hard to use it. We bring a lot of clothes (too many).
Our cabin attendants were right there for us whenever we needed them. And, we loved the animal towel designs! Read entire member review >>
Ok, cabin 2141 is directly under the buffet kitchen! Very noisy all hours of the night, avoid this room and all in the vicinity on deck 12, on both port and starboard sides. Had friends in 2139 they experienced the same noise problem. Talked with guests in 2143 and 2145, also had the same noise issues. Guest services was sympathetic to the problem, but could not fix the noise. Read entire member review >>
Our C2 cabin was at the back of the boat, giving us an oddly-shaped but oversized balcony. Overall the cabin was the standard Celebrity fare, although it was our first time having the bed closer to the closet than the balcony door.Our only real concern with the cabin was actually the cabin steward. I understand that he has upwards of two dozen rooms to service, but some of the omissions that he made were surprising. My parents found that as they used the complimentary Celebrity bathroom items they were not replenished. Toilet paper was not replenished once all week. My parents actually ran out -- including the hidden roll in the side cupboard. Aside from that, the cabin was clean, quiet, and comfortable. The location was as far towards the back as you can get without being considered an aft cabin, but we are both fit and enjoyed the walk to and from the stairs. Read entire member review >>
we thought the room was fine for a one week cruise . Nice deck and seating on the veranda . The room a bit small for in room dining so we did not do room service Their was adequate storage for clothes for a week or so. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was at the farthest back corner on the portside of the ship. Nice LONG walk to the elevator. No noise from other cabins. No vibration from the engine which I thought we would have as beeing so far back on the ship. Balcony was nice had a little angle on it so you could see out and to the right with no problem. Only had 1 balcony neighbour to your right. Had lots of privacy. Read entire member review >>
The room was wonderful, a bit smaller than Carnival but a better layout. The bathroom was 10x better then Carnival with the extra room and nicer products. They don't bring ice everyday but if you ask, it will be delivered to your cabin twice a day. Couldn't have been happier with the cabin Read entire member review >>
We were in 1124 and 1126. Did not use the connecting doors. Just had cabin attendant open balcony divider. Balcony were on the aft hump angle and were larger than normal. Being on angle makes them slightly less private but nice views. Cabins were quiet. 1124 bed by balcony and 1126 beds by closet. That cabin sleeps 3. Read entire member review >>
Concierge Class cabin was lovely....bed located near window so could watch the sea from bed. Pillows and mattress outstanding, as were robes and amenities. Closet a bit small, but we travel light these days and it was fine. Some people missed the huge storage area above the bed, which made all the difference. Bathroom was larger than some and could accommodate two people at once if necessary. Balcony was large enough for two lounges and we used them often since we booked on the sunny side of the ship for the crossing. Read entire member review >>
We had the Concierge balcony. A regular balcony would have been just as good since we didn't use the priorty check in that Concierge class and higher receives. Maybe during high season would be a good category to book.
Stateroom was nice. Very modern decors. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 1065. Cabin was on Port side of ship so that we had full sun while crossing Atlantic. Cabin was large, about 192 sq. ft. However, we could have used more closet space and drawers. Balcony was about 75 Sq. Ft. and was large enough for two people on lounges. Cabin had 32" TV. Location was quiet. Read entire member review >>
We enjoyed the cabin with one drawback, we were located on deck 12 (top cabin deck) right under the Ocean View Cafe. It was noisy several times during the cruise (like sound of chairs being dragged across floor) during the middle of the night, due to suspected cleaning. We booked the Concierge guarantee and therefore did not chose this cabin and I would recommend that anyone else assigned this cabin ask to be changed for the above described reasons. Read entire member review >>
Great mid-ship location, except for door across the hall that was accessed frequently by the crew. It slammed shut, mostly in the afternoon. This cabin is also between the two "bump-outs", so you can't see all the way to the front or rear of the ship. The balcony overlooks the life boats, so you can't see straight down to the water.

Great location on the 11th floor. Wonderful balcony, quiet area, fantastic service (including room service). Although we have heard complaints about the storage area above the bed, we did not find it to be a problem; it was large, easy to access. The bathroom was wonderful! Larger shower, much more room, lovely amenities. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was nice, beds comfortable, and decent sized shower stalls. Access to the over the bed storage was a challenge. Flat screen TV had more choices, (including 20 plus free on-demand movies) than most ships we have cruised.
Our Deck 12 aft location not the best choice. It was located below the Buffet and very noisy especially as staff was setting up for breakfast. Read entire member review >>
Concierge class (C2), we received two bottles of champagne upon arrival as well as fruit which was replaced daily. Afternoon canapes, if desired and the towels as well as linens were changed daily. Cabin #1653, port side, aft seemed small but our last cruise on RCI was an aft facing cabin which seemed immense. Very limited storage, just three small drawers, closet with sliding doors and two lift up cabinets over the beds. Bathroom had much more storage, cabinets and drawers and the shower was quite nice. Balcony somewhat tiny but adequate with two chairs and a small table. We were part of a Cabin Crawl and every cabin seemed the same including the aft facing ones. The ones with the sofa near the door and beds near the balcony seemed nicer. We did have the opportunity to visit a Sky Suite which was quite a bit larger but cost an additional 1k per person.

Cabin was adequate , nice modern interactive TV, nice enclosed showers,kind of limited draw space .but large storage bins above headboard of bed , nice clean balcony ,excellent noise suppression. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 1014 was very roomy and comfortable. The storage is adequate, but the overhead compartments were a bit challenging to use. A balcony light would have been nice. The bathroom and shower area was very good size. The balcony was good size and the lounge chair/table on balcony very comfortable. Location of cabin was forward on starboard side. No noise problems evident. Felt very little motion during most of trip...waters near Mykonos were a little rougher, but motion was minimal. Bed was very comfortable and stewart brought whatever we needed/wanted. Read entire member review >>
I thought the room was very well appointed and was larger than other cabins I have previously stayed in. The bathroom was a very nice size and the shower was great. I liked the decor in the bathroom and thought there was fairly good storage space in the bathroom. The only things that I couldn't store in the bathroom were my hair dryer and hair brush because there weren't any deep enough storage spaces.
I felt that the bedroom lacked drawers and instead had a lot of hanging room in the closet. There are two large compartments over the bed for clothing, but they are awkward to use because you have to stand on the bed to access them.
We liked the way that television was able to pull out and swivel so it could be watched from anywhere in the cabin. The couch was large (it can also be a day bed) so it was a little firm for sitting on comfortably, but was good enough.
The balcony was lovely and private. The chairs and ottomans were comfortable and I had a couple naps on them. I wish there would have been a light on the balcony so I could have read my book in the evening.
Overall, I was really impressed with the cabin and the use of space. The location of our room was perfect. It was on the tenth floor and mid-ship. Close to the elevators, but far enough away that you do not hear any sound. I never heard a peep from any of our neighbors either, which is an added bonus! Read entire member review >>
