Partly because of the length of this cruise we decided to splurge and book a Sky Suite. We did not regret that choice. There was plenty of room to move around and we were able to host several nice gatherings. Our Butler, "Easy" went out of his way to make sure that we always had what we needed for the parties -- shrimp plates, cheese and crackers, canapés were all beautifully presented.Our Cabin Attendant Mario and his Assistant Mistan were exceptional. The room was always made up when we returned to it. We would actually have liked to have had more interaction with them but they just did their magic and were gone!Century, as we all know, is 20 years old and will be leaving the fleet next year. There is some wear and tear showing but certainly not enough to cause discomfort, inconvenience or safety issues. Everything in our cabin functioned as it should and when it didn't (A bad switch for the bathroom light.) it was repaired within an hour. We had no problem with the plumbing although the tub/shower did drain a bit slowly.The only complaint we had about this cabin was the walking track above it. There are signs requesting that Guests use it ONLY for walking but there were a few (Aren't there always?) who took that to mean everyone except them.I would be cautious of choosing the four forward most cabins on this deck. The ping pong table has been set up in the Elevator Lobby and was in almost constant use and the noise did carry. It could be clearly heard in the passageway -- I'm not sure it if was noticeable in the cabins. I think this is a good place to mention the Chief Housekeeper, Michael. This man must have several twins because he was everywhere. Mention a smudge in the elevator and it's gone! I believe he is the senior Officer at Celebrity having started with Chandris. We miss his knuckle pumps at the evening social hour. Read entire member review >>
Despite many of the earlier reviews we had read, my wife and I both agreed the Summit is still in relatively nice shape. We booked a Sky Suite on Deck 10 (Cabin 1070) and we found the location ideal to the pool, buffets, and appreciated the mid-ship location on the few occasions when the ship was feeling the swells in the Pacific. While it's true the Sky Suites on Summit don't have the newer big flat screens and the nice technology touches we have grown used to on Solstice Class ships, the oversized balcony and amazingly helpful butler, (His name is Speedy Gonzalez) more than made
up for the older cabin which was in overall good shape Read entire member review >>
The cabin was in a great location with an awesome balcony. The bathroom was a lovely marble with jacuzzi tub and the most storage I have ever experienced on a cruise ship. We would choose this cabin again without hesitation! Read entire member review >>
We had sky suite cabin 1239. Great space, large balcony, very nice bathroom. very quite and the deck above which we were concerned about had very little foot traffic, so very quite. loved the location, very easy to take the steps down to dining, and the elevators only a few steps away.

Good location. If you're prone to seasickness do not stay on this deck. Very little noise from outside of cabin. Creaking noise from ceiling tiles(?) that you just had to get used to. Very nice size balcony with a table and 2 chairs, a small cocktail table and 2 loungers - ask your cabin attendant for chair pads. Read entire member review >>
Great cabin. Location near elevator was not a problem at all. Very big cabin with lots of room. The round table has a lever that lifts it for dining height or lowers it to coffee table height.
Had some disturbance by joggers above on deck 14 but guest relations stopped it. Not enough hot water at normal bathing times, like early AM and late evening. Two dual electrical outlets in the cabin. Fantastic storage. DVD player, iPod docking station, flat screen TV, good lighting,fantastic veranda. Huge bathroom (for a cruise ship) done in white marble. Lots of storage room in the bathroom. Huge soaking tub with jets.
There is creaking in the walls. It did not disturb us but might disturb others. Read entire member review >>
Wonderful Sky Suite 1074
Loved the size of the cabin, all the storage space, plenty of closet space, hangers and room in the bathroom. The balcony was outstanding, largest we have ever had. Convenient to both two sets of elevators and one floor below the pool and buffet area. Very quiet spot and having a sky suite is a real treat. Read entire member review >>
Pool Deck above our cabin, noisy during the night, could hear cleaning and deck chairs being moved at 3 am. TV in the room is mounted on the wall in corner of room, unable to to move TV screen to be seen from other side of room.
Great Balcony and plenty of storage space Read entire member review >>
Sky Suite : 1224. Deck good, but the amount of chairs did not match the number in the cabin. There is a drop off from the bathroom floor to the stateroom main floor. We both tripped twice on this, and hit the closet door. Someone could be hurt. Bathtubs old, ancient, and looked like Motel 6. Bathroom needs a major updating! Read entire member review >>
The size of the Sky Suite on Celebrity Century is comparable to a deluxe veranda stateroom on many newer ships. Some of the furnishings in the room (couch and side chairs) need to be replaced. The room has plenty of storage space. The balcony was very large at 1 1/2 times the size of the standard balconies and featured both a dining table with two chairs as well as two chaise lounges with a side table. The bathroom featured a whirlpool tub and shower, marble vanity/sink and marble floor and walls. The lighting in the bathroom is not very bright. The stateroom does not have enough electrical outlets. Read entire member review >>
1220. Sky Suite. Large room, very nice balcony with room for two chaise lounges, a chair and a small table. On lower decks, I think that the Sky Suite balconies may be completely covered by the floor above, but on the 12th floor, the last few feet of the balcony is open to the sun. On a positive note, this means that the balcony gets more sun, but it also means that if you are standing at the edge of the balcony by the railing, people on the public decks above can see you. We never felt uncomfortable about this and preferred having a bit of sunshine on the balcony, so we thought it was a good thing. We occasionally heard people running on the floor above us but never late enough that it disturbed us. Read entire member review >>
Suite 1202. Sports Deck. Close to elevators and stairs down to the buffet restaurant. Very small balcony. Good storage space. Bathroom a bit tired- silicone visible to seal around counter top. DVD player, movies available on request, get in quickly for best selection.
12 floor a reasonably quiet deck, just occasional people up on the deck above, they can see down into the balcony as balconys extend out beyond the deck above. Being near the entry to the 12th floor from the outside decks it was quieter than I would have expected. Read entire member review >>
