Not a "dining delight" quiltingpiggy
The cabin was well-appointed and very clean. Our room steward (Sydney) was fabulous!

Sweet sixteen, extra long balcony, at least 2-3 times larger than a regular one. Floors 7-8-9 balconies above you can look right down into yours.

Our cabin was nice. It was not huge, but it was very comfortable and clean and we loved the balcony. We were near the front of the ship, but hardly felt any movement. We loved listening to the water as the ship moved through it, especially at night. Our stateroom attendant was great, answered any questions and took care of any need we had.

Staterooms were very small. Rust on balcony rail and dirty sliding door. Overall nice spot on the ship and good location when in ports.

The cabin was adequate in size for two adults. I'd love a little more room, but then I'd have to pay for it. This room is just at the top of the stairways but there was very little noise. At night the light from the hallway peeked under our door, but that just made for a little nightlight in an otherwise very dark room. The balcony aft is a few feet larger than the rest of the 2A's on this deck. Loved it!

It was fine- shows some age in the bathroom and balcony.

The cabin with odd-shape balcony was great. Nothing to complain about, maybe expect the balcony door that was hard to open (need some jigaloo).

Our room steward Melvin did a great job. We were lucky, he gave us concierge-class breakfast menus for everyday and we really appreciated this nice touch. Had eggs and bacon and such almost everyday.

Great room. More than enough room for two adults. Quiet area, no noise from above.

Had the Room Stewart remove the fridge contents so we could put our own water/pop/etc in the fridge. Requested an ice bucket which was filled twice daily.

Bathroom great size, shower curtain never an issue as it did not blow in at all.

View from balcony was unobstructed and neighbors so quiet it felt like we were along out there all the time.

The cabin was spacious but the bathroom needs refurbishment. The shower tile grout showed black mold.

Our cabin (7131 (midship) was very comfortable with a lot of storage. I did notice little things that have changed since my April cruise. Where we used to get chocolates every night, now it was just on the first formal night. The bathroom used to have a container filled with cotton balls and Q-tips. Now there's a plastic bag with 2 cotton balls and 2 Q-tips.

NEVER AGAIN NevadaJan

Rooms were OK. I was disappointed that the floors in the bathroom were not "clean" - the grout lines were dirty and there was broken tile in the shower. I would like to see the beds up a little higher and give us more room to store under as well as not be so low to the ground. Also, it would be nice if the lights over the desk were better...hard to see at night.

The cabin was kind of tight but included a small couch and desk. The veranda had two chairs and a table. The room included adequate storage for two. We got what we paid for in the cabin.

(This also appears in my main cruise review.)
My family was on Deck 7 starboard. My husband and I were in Stateroom 7049. One word: Beautiful. Sparkling clean, possibly the hugest deck we’ve ever had, a very comfortable bed, and glorious stateroom attendants. My parents and sister's staterooms (7053 and 7040, respectively) were also very nice and had superior service from their stateroom attendants.

As an aside, though, Celebrity needs to do something about their TV service. There are people (like me) who prefer to hang out in their staterooms and just chill out on sea days. I had some great naps and enjoyed sitting on the huge veranda with a book and a cup of hot tea & cookies from the fabulous room service. But watching TV was an annoying experience. I did love the interactive TV – I liked being able to review my expense account on a daily basis so I didn’t overindulge. But while I enjoyed watching “Big Bang Theory,” “Modern Family,” and “How I Met Your Mother,” airing the same episodes over and over and over and OVER AND OVER for 2 weeks became pretty monotonous. Celebrity can use 1 or 2 channels for ship stuff, not 9 or 10. They need to get a better dish so most of the remaining channels don’t read “Poor Signal.” They need to update the bow camera channel with the correct ports of call (it said Charlottetown while we were in Quebec, both days) or spell them correctly (where on earth is New Fondland?). They need to add a lot of free movies and whole seasons of TV shows. Disney Cruise Line has one up on them on this.

We did pick a cabin with a veranda and this was the first time I had one. On my other cruises I had either a port hole or window. With that being said I would probably never go on a cruise without one. Did I mention we had 4 people in the cabin and 3 of them were women. So when we were trying to get ready I was able to sit back and relax outside with a drink and enjoy the view. So lets talk about the cabin a little more. The Summit is an older ship but nothing was broken. Everything was clean and well maintained so I had no issues with my room. Yes, all cabins are a little tight especially with 4 people in it but the stewards were great. They setup the other two beds every night and put them away during the day which gave us a little more room to walk around. I did see something in a post and I was so glad I listened. Bring a Power Strip for additional outlets. Let me give you an example you have two outlets in your cabin and you have 4 cell phones a hair dryer and a straightener. I only brought one power strip and it was plenty.

Great location (near aft elevators to restaurants) for a person with mobility problems. Big shower & lots of drawer, closet & shelf space. One of us uses a walker, which folded for storage on the balcony (or in the shower!).

7141

7141 is an accessible cabin with easy access to elevators and no hallway to maneuver. The balcony was not accessible without using a manual ramp that was heavy and hard to handle. Disable husband did not use the balcony. Newer ships have no threshold to balcony.
Bathroom was large but needed updated. Tile was cracked and old.

8153 (veranda balcony cabin) category 2A or 2B, I think. Smaller cabin but very comfortable. Would be a stretch for three adults, but two adults and a child would probably be OK. This cabin has an incredible amount of storage space and was in a great location (short walk to two flights of steps & elevators; two flights up puts you right at Oceanview cafe and pool deck). Veranda was nice sized, very comfortable. NOTE: Be mindful to check on which side of the ship where smoking is allowed if you are a smoker or you don't want to be around smokers. The Summit allowed smoking on the left side of the ship (including verandas and outside decks, not inside).

For deck 9, avoid being under the pool deck.

Nice, shaded balcony (shaded from 10th floor overhang above). We heard no noise whatsoever at any time, but we didn't spend much time in the room. That being said, with how port intensive the itinerary is, this would be one cruise that a balcony lover could easily be satisfied with an outside cabin if it came down to it.

The cabin seemed small to me but my husband liked it better than others we have been on. Balcony is small and overlooks lifeboats. It holds two chairs and a small table. One wall in the cabin is covered in mirrors which is sort of freaky, but once again, cruise ship style. The location is very good. Close to stairs and elevator but not too close. Also a good spot on Deck 7 because you are a few decks below the pools and buffet at Deck 10 and a few decks above the dining room.

7151
The Summit is a relatively old ship, so we didn't expect much. We were in 7151. We really liked it for location -- near exterior glass elevator but not too near. Near stairs and we could walk up or down the couple of flights to get to where we needed to be. Had a sort of love seat, very small. But adequate. Night tables were quite small. Why can't ships have electrical outlets on the headboard side of staterooms? Is that a law or something? We were overall very please with our home away from home.

7099 - typical balcony cabin. Small, but comfortable. Slightly worn carpet, but everything else in good condition. Bathroom clean and functional. Balcony small, but serviceable.

Very clean, plenty of space but wished that the light upon entering the stateroom didn't illuminate the entire room...only the closet area. Found it disturbing to want to look in the closet or even come into the room when my cabin-mate was asleep...the bright lights came on all over the cabin.

7047
Cabin 7047 was comfortable with plenty of storage space. Being a middle deck, I usually took the stairs up a few flight to pool and buffet or down a few flights to lounges and dining room. Balcony gave it a light airy feeling. It was a connecting cabin so you saw light from under the door of cabin next door and heard conversation as if they were in your room. It was the end of cabins they consider front and next to 7049 which they consider midship and a higher class. We booked 7049 for next year because it has a larger balcony that can fit a lounge chair, but I don't like that you can see into other balconies. In 7047 you could only look straight ahead and not into other balconies. I have to weigh the pros and cons.

Cabin 9024, forward veranda on the starboard side. A little cozy for four people, balcony has large overhang from spa above. Quiet from above, but some noise from crew work space across the hall, not enough to keep you awake; however. Closet and drawer space a little small for four people, probably plenty for less Only two electrical plugs, a power strip might be useful.

Great location with an overhang from the salon above to protect you from the sun. Easy access to elevators, and just up a quick flight of stairs to the AquaSpa area (pool, spa, healthy breakfast/lunch alternative)

Our cabin was quiet and overall very acceptable. Unfortunately, it was perpetually on the warmish side, 72 to 74 degrees at the coolest with the thermostat cranked as low as it could possible go for the entire cruise. On most every other ship we've been on, cranking the thermostat to the coldest position would have frozen all but the most cold-blooded cruisers, but not this cabin. I typically sleep with the thermostat set on 69 to 70, so this made sleeping only marginally comfortable for me. On the days we left the curtains to the veranda open, the room was intolerably hot and took hours to cool down. We only made that mistake once! We often noted that our hallway was cooler than our room. We put in a several requests to the front desk staff asking if they could lower the room temperature any, but it wasn't something they could apparently fix. The front desk staff checked on us continually and even sent us a bottle of champagne to help cool us off. Still, their efforts didn't result in solving the problem.
