Our cabin was ok - balcony was dirty - hair on the trough - the table was sticky - the bathroom was missing a cup - we did not get the toiletries restocked - and our shower door was not put on properly and the shower flooded the entire bathroom floor - we had to put towels all around to prevent slipping. We never once saw our cabin steward - and had to ask for a breakfast room service menu twice. It just felt like they were doing the bare bones minimum - not even once did they make a towel animal.

Spacious room and balcony. Plenty of storage. Little bit of noise from Sunset Bar and the 12th deck movies. But this noise always quieted down by 11 pm. Closed door to balcony kept out most of the noise during the day. Read entire member review >>
Dismal cabin. Absolutely dismal. We had a good time nevertheless....no choice, stuck on a ship! Please tell corporate to spend a couple of dollars. After four years (since our last cruise - same ship, same cruise)...you expect to see something, anything updated or new. Not old, used, frayed or rusted. Read entire member review >>
Cabin is spacious, with a small balcony that fits two chairs and a table. Due to the ship's design, Deck 9 balconies get the best shade and are best shielded from the rain. Read entire member review >>
This cabin was tucked away on the stern starboard side. You really want to be port side on this itinerary. The cabin was very quiet (had read some negative reviews about basketball court noise and movie noise but didn't experience this). You could hear the sail away music from your balcony but it was not obtrusive. The balcony does NOT have a roof as you are at the top of the ship so if you are looking for a shaded balcony this is not the cabin for you. I, personally, would sail in this cabin again, though.

Cabin was nice and large enough. Balcony was also nice. However, the bathroom had not been cleaned when we checked in and we found a used loofa type sponge in the shower. We really liked the location of the room as it is the last one on the starboard side with really easy access to the stairs and bar/dining area on next level down. Read entire member review >>
Average or small size, small balcony, but this ship has such nice public areas there was not a lot of times when we used the balcony or even stayed in the room. This particular cabin location was excellent however, as it was the last side balcony in the aft and at the top of the stairs to a great outside bar at the rear of the ship. Great location. Even though there was a bar below it was very quiet and the bed was comfortable. Read entire member review >>
Loved the cabin. Large balcony was beyond excellent! With the door open, it can get a bit noisy from the bar below and the theater on deck 12 but once you close the door it is very silent and comfortable. You can feel a little more motion also but for us, it was wonderful. Best rest I have ever had on a cruise ship. If you want complete silence, I would certainly not recommend deck 11.

The cabin was nice - very clean and in good repair. It is a bit of a walk to the stairs and elevators but was just one floor down from the pool and buffet. It was very quiet. We did not hear noise from above or on either side of us. The balcony was quite small but adequate for two people. The view straight out was unobstructed however the balcony is just under an overhang so we felt a bit closed in. Read entire member review >>
We had cabin 1138, an aft A1 Aqua. We lucked into this cabin a little because of a series of moves caused by a suite upgrade 5 days prior to the cruise. We learned of the opening by keeping up with the roll call (a lesson to all- Cruise Critic roll calls are fonts of information and opportunity). I wish I could say it was the greatest cabin ever, but it had some issues. The aft balcony view was fabulous and the balcony was big enough to include a full lounger as well as the two reclining chairs/footstools and a table. It has partial privacy as beyond a certain point can be viewed from people sitting at tables in the aft oceanview bar. Privacy wasn't an issue, though, as the balcony is deep and the area near the door was completely private. There was a small problem with soot throughout the cruise. Nothing major, just something to note. The sliding glass door had a tendency to open/close on its own, despite being very difficult to open initially. The water pressure in the shower seemed very low but improved when I asked our room steward to see if he could get someone to fix it. The moist annoying thing about the cabin was the constant/random "rattle" from one place over the mirrored wall. I could tell previous inhabitants had tried some "fixes" for this (a small piece of paper towel and another piece of paper were jammed in the area where the rattle occurred). Fortunately, I had ear plugs and got used to it after a few days. If you're in any way sensitive to noise, this is probably not a good cabin for you. With the balcony doors closed, the room noise from the rattle (and people jogging on deck 12 in the morning) were irritants. Sitting on the balcony, you can count on noise from the oceanview bar as well as the rooftop terrace movie screen. I should add that because of where we were cruising and the weather being pretty chilly, there was little of this external noise on our cruise. Read entire member review >>
Stateroom 1101 we would never pick this cabin again. You should really stay away from 1115 to cabin 1101 on deck 11. Their is a service elevator across from cabin 1115 and they take food and supplies from this elevator down the hall out to deck 11 then down to Qusine one of the Specialty Restaurants. Our Cabin was just OK as good as most on any ship, the shower was great with a curved door and 4-5 water jets. Read entire member review >>
I mentioned the issue with the visible holes in the sheets, above. We had mold in the corner of the shower and the door handle to the veranda was chipped/rusted to bear metal. Overall, the cabin was clean but tired. Read entire member review >>
Wonderful aft cabin. The balcony was huge, with two chairs, a table, and foot stools. Lovely aft view right above sunset bar. You could hear things out on the balcony but inside the cabin was very quiet. We could hear alittle bit of music at night inside the cabin but it was only until about 11:00 and it did not bother us. The rooftop terrace above us was a non-issue, you could not even tell it was there. Would book this cabin again in a heartbeat. Read entire member review >>
Loved the balcony and the proximity to the Oceanview Cafe. The layout I a awkward with the bed in the middle of the cabin. Storage space is average. Shower was great. Bed was comfortable.The biggest problem was the cabin is adjacent to the basketball court above. This meant constant thumping of the basketball all day and most of the night. So if you are a light sleeper avoid this cabin. We called Guest Relations several times during the early morning hours (3am at one point) to ask them to have someone stop the noise. They were responsive. However, about an hour later, the basketball noise started up again. Celebrity should have specific hours for basketball play and the take the ball away so passengers can get some sleep. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 1131 is located on the Port side on deck 11.you will need to take either the Aft elevator to deck 11 or main to deck 10.When on deck 10 walk through the Starboard side dining area till you see elevator,take to deck 11.
Very easy to navigate the ship from this cabin.To go to the pool area,just walk out the port side on deck 11 which leads you to the upper pool deck area where there are pool lounges and a bar and smoking area.
Very quiet room as there is no foot traffic as to the only other quests that are in aqua class.
There is the Sunset bar on deck 10 aft.You can access this bar by walking right out your room and outside,one deck down.
Noise level is very low.You can hear the Movie that is playing on deck 12 Aft,but only while on your Balcont.
The balcony has 2 chairs and a table.Not very large,but does the job.
The closet space was sufficient for all my wife's stuff and my dress shirts and Slacks.
There is amble room for folded shirts,socks,etc..
Stand up shower with a modern jet shower with I think 8 jets.Very easy to use.
The 2 room attendants went above and beyond to make everything right for us. Read entire member review >>
Cabin leaked rainwater during storms. Was never fixed. Door to veranda was difficult to open and only fixed toward end of cruise. Aqua Class cabin and veranda were smaller than anticipated based on prior Celebrity veranda cabins. Read entire member review >>
Great cabin. Nice private veranda. Some have said it is an alleyway the veranda, but we liked the privacy and the shade it offered. Great viewing from the rail. Room was kept spotless by our cabin staff. We enjoy Aqua Class for Blu and the aft cabins up on deck 11 on the M Class ships (our favorites). Read entire member review >>
Loved the cabin size and storage. The shower was quite large with excellent shower head and jets. Hangers in the closet were adequate but I did not like that leftover hangers from previous cruisers were left in there. I always discard mine when leaving. Not a good look. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was on the aft. With this came more balcony space which was nice and overlooked the wake from the ship. Aqua class cabins are always nice. We found lots of shelf and closet space for unpacking and stored our luggage under the bad. There is some noise from the bar below, but did not affect our stay and did not go on too late.

Cabin location made it easy to get everywhere on the ship quickly. We did not like the deck 10 overhanging the balcony. It did take away from your view. There was some noise from above early mornings. Good storage and overall condition. The shower does leak on the floor through the doors, which was a bit of a pain. Air conditioner did have a noisy vibration when set on high boogie. Read entire member review >>
Size of an RV- bathroom tiny, atrocious. The bed was the most uncomfortable I have ever experienced on a cruise ship!
Poor steward service, no ice, not enough towels. He couldn't answer questions in English. Not sure he understood, either. We asked for laundry service and he didn't understand. Read entire member review >>
our room attendant was non-existent our entire trip. He was changing our sheets but that's about it. He showed up the last night to guilt us into a tip by saying "wow it looks like you guys have really expensive jewelry.". Really REALLY weird.
We took off 1 of our prepaid gratuities because the service was quite bad. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was an Aqua Class cabin. It was ideally located aft above the Sunset Bar. We had easy access to the bar via a stairway steps from our cabin. We were directly above the Oceanview Cafe which made late night snacking so easy. The balcony was average size with two chairs and a table and was adequate for sitting and enjoying an unobstructed view. The furnishings in the room were in good condition. The bed and pillows were comfy and the quiet made for great nights of sleep. There was ample storage and after a request, we had enough hangers for our clothes. Robes and slippers were provided for our use as well as umbrellas, binoculars, and beach towels. We were close to an elevator but had little foot traffic except for people in the same corridor. The room was very nice and we enjoyed our stay. Read entire member review >>
Love the balcony, the fancier shower with all the assorted nozzles and rain therapy shower head, and the water and tea always in the room along with canapés at night. This particular cabin had a bit of noise from the moving of the chairs on the next floor up...heard them a couple of times....not bad....just did notice it....so if you are light sleeper you might want to check out what is above you. I think I heard it around 6 a.m. once or twice. I would take this cabin again though without hesitation as it did not really bother me. Read entire member review >>
Tried a sunset cabin for the first time and and l-o-v-e-d it! Cabin was typical but the balcony was very large. Two reclining deck chairs with ottomans and a table. Was great to have breakfast and lunch there. The cabin was 1 floor above the self serve dining and, very conveniently, there are stairways on either side of the series of sunset cabins that lead directly to that dining area. So was easy to trot down, fill a plate and bring it back up. The bathrooms on Summit are smaller than other solstice class ships, but the shower was very spacious. Not like the small round showers typically found on cruise ships. Definitely like that touch. Yes, the bathroom mirror is heated so it doesn't fog. There was a lot less traffic up and down the hall so it was quieter. So enjoyed the location of the cabin that I've already booked another cruise for 2016 ... in another sunset cabin!

These are wonderful cabins. Our review of cabin 1133 was part of our ship review. If you are a light sleeper in a Deck 11 AFT Balcony, sleep below the Summit Bar , not on Deck 11. That's easy enough. They like their music, and it won't bother you if you are on Deck 9 below the noise. Remember, It didn't bother the other aft balconies on Deck 11, so it was my issue too, not just theirs. Just be aware of it. Xavier is an outstanding steward of room 1133. He typifies Celebrity staff. He cares! Read entire member review >>
Nice, quiet location with easy access to Blu and the buffet. Rooms fairly new so in good condition. Balcony a bit small, with no footstools like on S class. Balconies for these rear rooms vary a bit due to location. This room had the smallest of the lot. Read entire member review >>
To be fair, the cabins on this Solsticized-Millennium-class Summit were very good---and i think the bathroom in our room was actually better-designed than the ones on the Solstice ships we have cruised on (more room, nicer shower it seemed). And the rest of the room has lots of storage areas---nice. We did have a problem in that it took an act of God to open our terrace sliding door (even the room attendant had a hard time) and this was, of course, not fixed during the cruise. Also, the carpeting had, for some reason, several small raised bumpy areas in front of the bed (which you have to use because there is so little room between the bed & the full-wall-mirror in front of the bed (who thought THAT was a good idea??)----:bumps very difficult to notice, but easy to trip on---which is what I did one of the first nights, rather painfully twisting and hurting my back (a recurring pain in the back during the rest of the trip). But otherwise, the room was just fine and, but for the problems noted, similar to the Solstice rooms in quality. Read entire member review >>
