Our cabin was spacious and we were very happy we had upgraded. The only complaint I have is we were on deck 9, the Overview restaurant is directly above and sometimes it was noisy, but never late at night. In addition, we were rarely in our cabin because this cruise is port intensive and we were on excursions every day. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was clean, very convenient to elevators, restaurants and easy to get up to the pools, Cabins are somewhat small, but ample - as was the balcony. Bathroom had a shower/tub and was of adequate size. Plenty of closet space. Bed was OK. Read entire member review >>
The cabin is showing some in age, but for the most part is quite nice. The only issue I had was the tub was a little worn looking and could've been cleaner. I am not a light sleeper but this cabin is below the grill so there is some noise at the evening and morning. Read entire member review >>
The Summit is definitely showing her age. The Celebrity Suite is a sweet stateroom - very spacious and well appointed, but it is a little rough around the edges. Rust on the balcony, curtains are askew, furniture sagging, bathroom worn and tired, refrigerator barely cools, televisions (yes, two) don't focus all the way and the color is shot. Picky things, really. But when one is paying top dollar for a suite one expects top accommodations. Read entire member review >>
Room 9096 is right under burger grill and freezer. Constant moving of heavy carts occurred overhead! Bathtub is old Jacuzzi. Butler had to supply a stool to be able to take a shower. Shower in Aqua Class cabins are much better. Also should mention that couch is very old and sad. Very uncomfortable and very low to the floor. Also noticed that the beds did not seem up to Celebrity Suite quality.
Butlers are amazing! Read entire member review >>
The cabin is lovely but somewhat neglected. The marble in the bathroom was loosely held on with tape, and the sofa has seen better days. There is a chair with a footstool that are truly comfortable, and I look forward to sitting there each time I cruise in a CS. The tub is difficult to climb into and out of, but we are ambulatory enough to make it work without too much trouble. We always request a tub mat, and this provides secure footing when making the transition. Normally, the balcony has a table and two chairs with footstools. We requested a lounger and ended up with two loungers along with the table, two chair, and two footstools. It was a bit crowded, but we managed. One of the cabinets in the dining area was too difficult to open, and one of the sliding doors in the dressing room did not fasten properly, causing the door to slam repeatedly when the seas weren't calm. I solved this by propping the dressing table seat against the door. I know the Penthouse Suites and Royal Suites were refurbished during dry dock. I am sorry the Celebrity Suites did not receive some attention during this time. That said, we will be staying in the same room next year. Hopefully, some attention will be paid to this lovely room. The window is wonderful, and the sitting room is beautiful and bright. It truly deserves some loving care. Read entire member review >>
*** Bathtub ***
It was treacherous getting in and out of the tub.
The side of the bathtub was so high that we had to get a step stool in order to use the bathtub (this seemed to be a common complaint because the Butler was very familiar with the problem - and the solution). Because it was a tub, it was narrower than a shower and not flat, making it a lousy shower experience. As a side note, the bathtub was so small that you could only bathe a small child in it - there is no way that an adult could use it as a tub.
*** Closet space ***
As you would expect in a suite, there was plenty of closet space
*** Room layout ***
Plenty of room. It seemed there was a fair amount of wasted space, but that did not affect the utility of the room. Read entire member review >>
Plenty of room in this cabin with a separate bedroom and pullout couch for the third family member. Lots of light with floor to ceiling Windows. Nelson, our butler, was excellent as well and took care of all our needs and requests. Read entire member review >>
Our suite was ready by 1 PM, 7140 Celebrity Suite was immaculate. Our butler was Su and she was the most kind, happy person I have encountered and while we are low maintenance she did cater to our every whim by bringing me gluten free appetizers everyday and bringing my husband regular appetizers. She kept milk in our fridge because I needed it. Our stateroom attendant Maria also kept our room spotless! We spend a lot of time talking to the crew learning about their lives, their families because we enjoy it. I must admit that sometimes I get sad when I hear they have to leave their families and I could never do it. Su put a whole new spin on it for me when she worded it, that her new family is on the ship and that she feels so good when she can send money home to her family. She also enjoys going home and spending 2 – 3 months with her actual family. The celebrity suites balcony’s stick out on the starboard side of the ship, so sitting on the balcony can be odd – as there are always people looking at you, you can also see onto these balcony’s from the oceanview café. I have read some peoples comments that suites are not worth it and I totally disagree. I LOVED it and the perks. If you are a home body, enjoy relaxing in your room and being away from crowds, then I think your room type is important. My husband went horseback riding and kayaking on 2 – half days of the trip, being pregnant I could not go and I ENJOYED my time in the suite alone! One day I had a massage in suite and the other I just relaxed and did nothing. Read entire member review >>
We loved the large windows and apartment-like appearance of the CS. Our stateroom, attendant, Maria, provided the best service we've ever had. Su, our butler, was our favorite on all of our cruises. The room is beautiful, and I recommend it highly. The bathroom is the only awkward feature, with entry and exit to the tub being hampered by the bathroom size and design. Having a tub mat does a lot to alleviate the problem, and our requested one was in place when we arrived in the room. It's the only category of room we've booked on Celebrity, and we've already booked one for next year. We were allowed into the room during the turnaround for our b2b, so that made it very convenient. Maria made up the room early in anticipation of our entering soon after our short trip through Customs. Read entire member review >>
Because of the discount we chose to stay in a Celebrity Suite stateroom. This was a very nice cabin, with a lot of space (#7140). There was a connecting door to the next cabin (#7138) for larger families. The bedroom was a nice size, with a very comfortable bed. The closet ran the length of the room but was shallow, enough to hold a vanity with stool, and a full mirror. There was plenty of drawer space as well. The path to the bathroom was narrow, along the foot of the bed about 10" from the television. I wonder about the future of televisions in bedrooms: it used to be such a luxury but we never used it as we had our own devices and large screens seem more and more out of place. The bathroom was nicely stocked with good bath products (Bulgari) and a request for extra towels was filled immediately and continually. The tub was deep and relaxing, but it made stepping in and out of the shower rather perilous I must say. I am not a fragile person, but the bathroom floor seemed to be about 6" below the tub floor and getting out required firmly holding on to counters and rails. I imagine that older passengers might have to sit on the edge and swing around to get out. The deck had a table and two chairs, but they quickly brought a chaise longue upon request. Nice for those afternoon naps in the sun! There is a sofabed in the living area of the cabin. This would be great if you had more than two in the room, but it was impossibly uncomfortable to sit on during the day. Another signal of this being a bit of an older ship, though lovely, was the complete inadequacy of power outlets. There were two in the dressing area over the vanity. Traveling with a laptop, three e-readers, and two phones made the need for more outlets inevitable. When we stayed at the W Hotel in San Francisco a year ago, they had a desk with twelve outlets across the top for devices. Making an iPod docking station a featured convenience rather underscores the age of the ship. It's interesting how quickly things change, and I imagine this can be quite a headache for cruise lines. As I mentioned, we never use bedroom televisions anymore (though I appreciated the one in the living room for navigation and news) so they seem to take up space. I might be in the minority now, but I think that this might all change in the coming years.Our room attendants were a butler, a housekeeper, and her assistant. They were faultlessly efficient. I don't have many needs when traveling, just a clean space and discreet service. The butler is a nice touch, and it helps to have one person to call, but aside from in-room breakfast one day, and some laundry needs, we didn't call upon him very often. I did appreciate the daily tea and snacks, however, and he made sure that the fruit bowl always had the fruit I like and would actually eat.As guests in a suite, we also had access to Michael's Club. This is on Deck 4, near the Photo Gallery. It is a private area with access for suite guests only. I don't like being a part of something so exclusionary, but this was a very nice space. The room was presided over by Jole, an exceptionally charming woman of great humor and charm. Her friendliness and helpfulness was amazing. In the Club, there are snacks and a bar that is open to guests from early morning until . . . late, I guess. This was a nice area, and the ship was trying to foment a convivial atmosphere among its suite guests. I can see where this is going - I think many ships are trying to copy the Cunard model of class distinctions (I mean "class" as a travel category, not the social construct!). In any event, it was fun and if you're booked into a suite, I would heartily suggest making the most of it. I might not have had to go for the drink package upgrade if I knew how much time I would spend in the Club for a pre-dinner cocktail and a nightcap. Read entire member review >>
As for the room, let me just say if you have a chance to stay in a Celebrity Suite, do it!! We did because the price was right, we normally go concierge, and this room, all the windows, the furnishing, the art, (in fact throughout the ship) was great. The deck is a bit of a weird shape but it is because it was added on, but it is still large and expansive. It was a wonderful room, and the bathroom is great, you can see the ocean from the shower!

6104 wonderful - quiet location- great view- center of ship . Just a few flights up and down to all venues.
Nice new balcony added. A true suite with a full living/dining room. A beautiful private bedroom. Walk-in closet- lots of storage. Read entire member review >>
CS 9098 was perfect! The addition of a 4 ft. wide balcony outside the panoramic 20 foot windows was an unexpected treat. There was little or now noise from the deck above. Highly recommend these suites! Read entire member review >>
Cabin 6104 ... Celebrity Suite with newly added balcony. It has a private bedroom where you can shut the door ... although to gain access to the bathroom you must go through the bedroom. It did seem quiet. There is a large table in the room .... great for room service. Two TVs. Makeup desk in bedroom. Shower is part of tub ... and you have to climb over a very high tub to get in. The newly added balcony is very wide but not deep. They only give you two chairs and a small round table ... no chaises. Overall, very nice room and much larger than any of the mini-suites. And, you have a butler! Read entire member review >>
Celebrity suite was quiet, we never heard our neighbors. Having a separate bedroom was great. Not having a balcony was worth the extra space. The curtains were a bit tricky. Room was midships near the stairs and elevator. I was happy with 8104. Read entire member review >>
Celebrity Suite 8104 - great suite, separate bedroom, dining area, living room, curved windows, great view, no balcony, didn't miss it. Butler service was great, they were always bringing food to the room. Read entire member review >>
Great layout for two women sharing a cabin! Loved the jetted tub, huge vanity area, bar area and desk with internet computer. This is a wonderful cabin that families with small children would also enjoy, since there is no balcony, but stunning views! There is definitely noise from the connecting doors. We had a very 'vocal' group staying in the CS next to us, and we were kept up, well past midnight, every night, by their loud voices and partying. Read entire member review >>
6138 is a delightful cabin (a Royal Suite) but needs new furniture and a bed reflecting the price of this cabin. I thought it was way to hard, and even after replacing the pillows my sore neck remained. The bathroom had two lights not working when we arrived but were quickly fixed. With a full stall shower, Jacuzzi and twin sinks, this is a bathroom to behold. The wood decor and cabin configuration are great, and the very best part was our butler, Rikki. This class of cabin has a shared butler and we were indeed pampered. The veranda had a hot tub that was in serious need of a replacement, and the veranda exterior wood also needed a lot of tender care. In all, the Royal Suite is cruising in First Class.

Celebrity Suite 7138 is a large suite with floor to ceiling windows but no balcony. We've booked it before and think it offers the best value of all suites. It is a true suite, with a living room, dining table, and a separate bedroom. There is a dressing room, an enormous amount of storage space, and a decent sized bathroom with 2 sinks and a large, whirlpool tub/shower combination. The bathroom is the only one that I've ever seen that gets natural light, thanks to a window that looks out to the living room space.
It is located mid-ship, offering a smooth ride and easy access to most public areas on the ship.
The living room had newish furniture with a more modern style than the last CS we sailed in, and everything was in very good condition. The window curtains are the only bad feature. They are a pain to open and close, and often get stuck halfway open. Even in their fully open position, they block the top portion of the window. They should be replaced with electric blinds that go all the way to the top.
There is a large, flat screen TV in the living room with a DVD player, and another large flat screen in the bedroom. The TV in the living room was a newer model, with an outstanding picture. In the bedroom, it was an older model, but the speakers are built into the ceiling.
Not having a balcony is a drawback, but considering the CS usually costs only a little more than a Sky Suite but is almost twice as big makes it a better value in my opinion.
The main drawback to the suite is climate control. When the sun is facing the suite, it gets very warm, even with the curtains completely shut. I think this problem could be resolved with better curtains and a more powerful A/C. Read entire member review >>
We had the celebrity suite and it was spacious in the living area. A little tight in the bedroom and bathroom. The side of the tub is so high if you are short, it needed a stool to get in to and out. Read entire member review >>
