We loved having adjoining rooms for the five of us. Early in the cruise, mom slept with the girls and dad slept with our son. By the end of the cruise, the three little ones were in one room and mom and dad got to enjoy the other cabin! We loved the window seats overlooking Central Park. It also meant natural sunlight everyday. We also loved not having a balcony or being on the windy (sea) side of the ship. Read entire member review >>
The mattresses should have been changed out. They were slumped and not comfortable. Not enough drawer space for clothes. Bathroom really small. Like the enclosed shower. I was very disappointed not to have any TV channels worth watching! Read entire member review >>
Central Park View is only a slight monetary upgrade from an interior cabin, but the window to the park was enjoyable. Lets in natural sunlight in the morning as you awake, and lets you peek at the fun on Central Park as you are getting ready for dinner. I'd stay in this room type again. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was always very clean and tidy. The service from the chamberlain was of excellent standard. The location of the cabin did not have a good view of Central Park, but it showed only a final part of it. Anyway, we stayed in the cabin for a short time! Read entire member review >>
Loved our cabin overlooking the central park. Cozy. Our attendant was very friendly and made us feel right at home. He was always able to answer any of our questions and was very kind. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was awesome. The view was one of the best. I would probably like an outside view on this ship in the future, but it was remarkable to look out of my balcony and see trees and green foliage. Read entire member review >>
Do not book this cabin!!! We had booked a "guarantee ocean view" which apparently means "a view of something." We learned that when we are on a cruise, we'd rather see ocean. This was the noisiest room we've ever had in our 16 cruises to date. Every night between 12:30 am & 2:30 am it sounded like someone below us was stacking lumber. And every night from midnight until 3:00 or so, we could hear loud talking & doors slamming. People, I must ask, can you not enter or exit your cabin without slamming the door? We did not get much sleep during this cruise. Read entire member review >>
Nice and clean but do not book this particular cabin as the window is directly over the trellis in Central Park. I suggest a few cabins down to clear the trellis to have an unobstructed view. Read entire member review >>
Great Cabin, view of the Park Cafe and right over Giovanni's table. Love the window seat! Would have liked more drawer space and a larger area for long clothes on hangers. Most of the closet was broken into to two rods so shorter items could hang. Read entire member review >>
Rooms: Our 2 rooms were available exactly at 1:30. We were quite delighted to find that we were upgraded to a Central Park view room, even though we had booked 12 days prior to sailing for the lowest price cabin. The room is close to 200 square feet and very roomy compared to what I'm used to on other ships for the inside category. The beds are pushed together but the room stewards would come and check to see if you want them separated. I love the window seat looking out onto Central Park. It was hard to imagine you're on a ship. The bathroom is compact but has lots of storage. There are lost of hooks to hang wet bathing suits. I especially like the hand-held shower head for helping with the kids. We were given 2 heavy glass tumblers in the bathroom but luckily I had brought a small plastic one for the kids.

The location, Central park is the best! You see light as the ship is totally opened in this section, but it is very peaceful and quite. Especially great for those who are on their first cruise or apprehensive. Closet was ample- would have like more drawer space. Celebrity has large cabinets over the beds- something that would help give more space and perhaps Royal Caribbean should install on their ships. Also the bathroom cabinet space was okay but shelves on both sides of the mirror would have been appreciated. The adjoining cabins were wonderful. The cost of two central park window cabins for four people was cheaper then a mini suite- much better choice- we had two bathrooms and two cabins with a door adjoining both.

The room was nice and large, but the layout was awkward. The bed was right when you came through the door, so it really crowded the front of the room. It was also placed right in front of the closet, making access difficult. The window seat was also larger than it needed to be, making it tight to store all of our suitcases without piling them up either on the couch or the window seat. Read entire member review >>
Cabin is a little larger than average ones on this ship, the picture window is nice looking out over Central Park, quite and no noise bleed over from outside. Room is next door to a crew door so occasional noises from next door although it was muffled and never bothered us. Bathroom small but shower is nice with sliding doors. Couch above average and large enough for a six foot man to fully stretch out on. IPOD docks for charging and playing your music. Overall nice room. Read entire member review >>
