This will be our 3rd cruise on Celibrity and have only been in Aqua Class.
We were upgraded from Concierge Class 1 to "Aqua Class" on our 2nd Cruise . This was to the Europes Eastern Mediterannean on the Solstice and have never ate in the Main Dining room so we cannot really compare.
We booked a year in advance and chose this room on the Reflection because it was on the Starboard side12th Deck with no overhang and only 1 neighbor 2104 next to us.(who were very nice and quiet by the way) and no door slamming!
Here are the reasons why this room was excellent....
-20 steps to the Aqua Spa same floor Mans Shower and Sauna huge private powereful shower bench ,toiletries, lots of towels no need for locker just walked out of room in the morning with a wrap
only saw 2 people at 7:00 a.m.(We are early risers)
-Bed beside patio door +PLUS.....Listen to Ocean sounds at night,storage beside bed at patio door adequate, no running into each other at end of bed when attempting to get to the bathroom, ample standing room by closet with no bed to bump into.
-1 Flight up to Aqua Spa Cafe (2 minute walk) could bring back snacks and lunches to our room and return for wine refills (Pinot Noir excelllent) The seating in the Cafe was always crowded so this was a definite perk!
-Full SUN (Starboard side) on the way down to the U.S. Virgin Islands. NO shaded balconys!
-2 Flights up for Mast Bar for more cocktails prior to dinner in Bleu. 5 minute brisk walk
-Housekeeping Cart usually outside cabin....great for holding trays of English Fancy Sandwiches served at 4p.m Oceanview rest (while trying to get the key into the slot).
-easy access to elevators (forward elevators are less busy)
-NO LONG HALLWAYS
-If prone to sea-sickness.....since you are higher up on the ship.....bring medication....it will pass!
-More 'pitch and yawl' and creeking....(ship is still new and is trying to settle itself)
Aqua Class 'Bleu' Restaraunt was never crowded...Breakfasts were perfect! Enjoyed ourselves immensely... make sure you get a 'Drink Package' or you will be waiting at the bars.....the staff are very busy....and you would have to wait for a receipt everytime you have a drink
