Our cabin (9099) was close to the mid-ship elevators, attractive, well appointed and had plenty of storage. In fact, on the last day we discovered more shelves in a secret side door in the TV cabinet. 16-days worth of clothes filled the closet and drawers but we still had a little room to spare. A tip from the Forum to use the empty suitcase under the bed as a rolling dirty-clothes hamper was great advice! The balcony overhang has pros and cons -- great for shade but not so great for star gazing. We discovered our cabin was under the smoking section of the pool deck but it posed no problem -- a little noise (only in the morning) but we never smelled anything on our balcony. We'd read that there were water pressure problems but experienced no problem -- in fact, we loved the shower with extra spa-like sprayers.
We spoke with several folks in Deck 11 Aqua class who wish they were on Deck 9 due to hot sun pouring in on balconies and being away from mid-ship. Read entire member review >>
Dated furniture, poor bedding uneven mattresses. Shower floor was unevenly grouted and
thus grounded. Often water leaked on the floor due to poor glass door quality.
Definitely needs new updates - esp for Aqua Class!!! Read entire member review >>
We really love the Aqua Class rooms and this ship didn't disappoint. This ship is a little older, so the room felt a little worn, but overall it was really nice and spacious for a cruise ship and you can't beat Blu for dining. Read entire member review >>
We had a surprise upgrade offer a week before the cruise and moved up from an oceanview. This cabin was much more than we expected and the high balcony was great. There is vibration from the engines at a certain speed but it is not constant. Loved the Aqua class perks Read entire member review >>
See my Review for vibration details. This was our first time travelling in Aqua Class. The larger room size was welcome. The balcony location was perfect for many of the sites on this cruise. We were expecting it to be larger than the standard; so all Aqua Class rooms are not the same. The pillow selection and towels were fine but did not live up to what was advertised for this class of service. Poor water pressure in the shower reduced the enhanced shower features but still adequate for regular shower use. Close proximity to the aft deck café was a very nice feature.

Small and outdated. Shears were ripped and repair work unprofessional.
Aqua class rooms were very noisy 24 hours a day as they were below the pool and spa.
These rooms also have a huge overhang over the balconies that block the view considerably. Read entire member review >>
I wouldn't pay extra for A1 (see above review) but did hear that some rooms on 9 (A2 under the pool) were also a little noisy, so why pay more.The room was larger than the lower levels, but Concierge, which was built for the ship and better located on 8, might be a better choice, but then you don't get to eat in Blu.

This cabin is ideally positioned
* situated at the very end of the stern end of the ship, which means you can you're right next to the stern elevators that take you straight to Blu on 5
* relatively quiet, only times when I heard noise was when there were performances on the Oceanview Bar
* balcony is very private, slight overhang so there's shade (can be a con for some though)
* if very windy out and you don't want to wander outside, you'll need to go down a few floors to be able to walk to the forward end of the ship
* (at least a con for some) you'll feel the choppiness of the seas, but personally I like to remember I'm on a boat :) Read entire member review >>
9131 was nice and clean, and we liked the upgraded shower, robes, etc. Although, some instruction regarding the features would really come in handy. I have neck problems and no one told me about the pillow menu that could have alleviated them. No directions for all the nice things you can do with the shower adjustments either. We never did figure out how to turn on the entry light without blazing up the entire cabin, and the balcony door needs Arnold Schwarzenegger to open it. Yikes.
That said, our cabin steward was so attentive I couldn’t believe he ever sleeps had not been cloned somehow. Always there, always helpful! Read entire member review >>
This is a very comfortable mid-ships Aqua class cabin. Our cabin steward, Sameer, was excellent. Like other Celebrity cabins we've stayed in, this was well-designed with plenty of storage space, attractive and clean. Great bathroom - glass doors on the wonderful shower. The veranda is under an overhang created by deck 10 (pools etc) - noise from above was NOT a problem for us, but we missed the full view of the sky and decided we prefer the deck 11 Aqua cabins.

Aqua class cabin A1 room #9044.
Well appointed cabin with veranda, it has plenty of room for two. I had read before here about the overhang on the balcony being bothersome, but I liked it. The most comfortable bed I have slept on in years. I would really like to know what brand and firmness it was. Plenty of storage and closet space. Read entire member review >>
Aft cabin. Good sized balcony. Did not like he noise from the movie screen one deck up. When a movie on we could hear all the noise so not relaxing. Some noise also came up from the bar below. Handy to nip out to get a drink and bring it back to the balcony.
Storage not as good as on the newer ships and bathroom much smaller than the aqua one on Eclipse. Read entire member review >>
Great cabin for an Alaskan Cruise. Long balcony, first part under cover. If looking out to sea, people above can see you and to the sides people from the oceanview can see you. If sitting on your balcony there is noise from the oceanview and noise from whatever they are showing on the screen. (None of this bothered us on this cruise)
Although a fabulous cabin I would not have it again but would recommend for an Alaskan cruise. Read entire member review >>
Wonderfully wide extended deck, overlooking the aft of the ship with 180 degree views and a view of the Sunset bar. Cabin was smaller than comparative Aqua cabins on Solstice class ships.
Room attendant service was exceptional. Read entire member review >>
A quiet location with excellent proximity to the aft elevators and the dining rooms.
The decor in the room is starting to look tired but it is spacious enough and has a lot of storage. The bathroom is large for ship standards but the shower door is completely ineffective resulting in a wet floor after every shower.
The balcony is unobstructed and mostly uncovered which makes it extremely hot particularly when travelling on the Central America itineraries. Read entire member review >>
Beautifully quiet overall. Some noise from the Roof Terrace film when on the balcony, but nothing to really complain about. Plenty of storage space, Although drawers in wardrobe area are very shallow. Lovely sunny balcony at the right time of day. No footstoll provided - we used a pile of pool towels and room cushions instead! Read entire member review >>
Spacious, comfortable and quiet (at starboard aft end, though suite next door has a piano, so you take your chances, at least that it's someone who can play well...!). Nice quiet balcony, large bathroom with separate shower cubicle. Big comfortable bed, ask for hypoallergenic pillows and linens if you need to, we did not remember to and had some allergic symptoms from the default feather ones. Good cabin staff and always available and accommodating. Overall a very nice cabin. Read entire member review >>
This cabin has a very large balcony, but little privacy since it overlooks the Oceanview bar below. It was in pretty good shape. The desk top (as on other ships in this class) is badly stained and cannot be cleaned. Whatever material they chose for the desktops was a very poor choice. Cabin attendant, Somchai, was very good. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was in excellant condition. We have stayed in Aqua Class before and thoroughly enjoyed it. Love the shower and the Ice Tea that was in the room every day. Our cabin attendants were wonderful. Read entire member review >>
Cabin location was excellent and very quiet. It was convenient to walk downstairs to the Oceanview cafe and just a close elevator ride down to Blu. The balcony has a slight overhang but for the most part is exposed. We chose this portside cabin so that we would be in the shade in the afternoon while traveling south in the hot Mexican/Central American sun. It worked out well so the temperature was pretty much always cool. Coming north from Colombia, where we were in the afternoon sun, the cabin was a little harder to keep cool. I don't know how quiet this area will be once the rooftop terrace is built. Read entire member review >>
I liked the individual room design in the aqua class: roomy, more than sufficient drawer and cupboard space to store clothes so we didn't have to live out of a suitcase. The sliding glass doors to the roomy balcony enabled us to keep the doors open at night to get the cool ocean breeze. The bathroom was a good size with an ultra modern fabulous rain shower complete with levelled jets. Read entire member review >>
The 11th level AQ cabins on Millenium Class ships are very convenient and strategically great since it easy to navigate the ship. On the other hand they are hot when it is hot outside since the roof is above Our cabin was quiet. for some odd reason the interior was already wearing out. The bathroom mirror was pealing its silver backing and the shower hardware was worn. The carpet was dirty (don't wear white socks) Read entire member review >>
See notes above...cabin bathroom had an unpleasant odor throughout the cruise.
Air conditioning system did not seem to be working properly; we had to keep the unit on high the entire time.
Mold beginning to be seen in the shower.
We found a shore excursion brochure from South American/February behind the night stand...our cruise was end of March. Obviously the cabin had not been thoroughly cleaned.
The lanai track needed cleaning - it was difficult to open the door to get outside on our deck. Read entire member review >>
Great AQ cabin in the center of deck 11 looking aft. There was some soot present on the deck of the veranda in the morning – likely from trash burning overnight. Cabin is very quiet and convenient to all dining venues – walk down one deck and you are in Oceanview or ride the elevator down to other decks. The aft elevators seem to be less in demand than others. Hint: when boarding, walk up to deck two, go aft and get on the elevator avoiding all the crowds waiting for the midship elevator.

The cabin was typical for A1. The cabin temp got a little cold in the Antarctic and a little warm in Buenos Aires. We like it around 70 F. A fair amount of storage but very few places to hang things. If I recall correctly, two US electrical plugs at the desk. We take multiplug adapters. Read entire member review >>
