Great service, a little tired in places but spotlessly clean. The fruit service and canapes were welcomed and our steward was fantastic. Loved having access to binoculars when sailing into Japan in the mornings to get a closer view of the islands. Read entire member review >>
Pull out bed was great for my sister and we had a huge balcony. We were at the very back of the ship. My only complaint was that we were right under the bar at the back of the ship and you could hear scraping of chairs all the time.. from morning until night. It got to the point that we were just laughing about it because it was becoming comical. If they could put something on the bottom of the chairs to stop the noise I think it would be a big improvement. Apart from that we loved the room. There was a pull out couch in the room where my sister slept and the bed for my husband and I. I was surprised at the amount of room we had as I was initially worried about closet space with it being two women with 2 weeks worth of clothes and my poor husband, but it was lots of room and even enough for storage for all 4 cases under the bed. We also had a huge deck which helped. Read entire member review >>
The size of the cabin was on the small side but adequate. I have already listed all the issues around the cabin and it is generally a very tired cabin but there is no excuse for dirty linen or the damage to the woodwork. The rust has been over painted and is showing through. Read entire member review >>
Although we were concierge class, our stateroom was the smallest that I can remember, however it was adequate. What wasn’t adequate were the electrical outlets: there were only two in the entire stateroom; none in the bathroom. Items like electric razor or toothbrush had to be charged in the two outlets by the desk while alternating with mobile phones; computer, etc. The outlets are on the opposite side of the room from the bed which meant that to power the CPAP machine that I use when sleeping, an extension cord had to be run across the floor … we hoped not to trip on it when we got up in the middle of the night. Stateroom attendant was good; cheerful and conscientious, however out on our balcony the paint was peeling off metal surfaces and there was corrosion all around the balcony door. This is true for other parts of the ship as well. Celebrity has deferred maintenance. It’s shoddy. Read entire member review >>
Loved our cabin. We've never had a balcony before, and, while it was a bit chilly to use it much, we loved the natural light coming in and making it feel homier and bigger. We had a great view of the send off in Hakodate :) Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was wonderful and it was all due to having a balcony. If we had an inside cabin or oceanview, our entire experience would have been completely different. You can sit outside on the balcony with a blanket (provided by the cruise in the pool area) and coffee and just take in the scenery. My hubby and I would spend hours on the balcony with our binoculars (highly recommend buying a nice pair of binoculars!). The binoculars allow you to confirm what you are seeing in the trees and water. We were in Concierge Class so we had fancy snacks delivered to our room each afternoon (they are just okay) and had turndown service. Our room attendant was a little on the creepy side, but that can happen anywhere. The bed was firm but comfortable - the tv is not the greatest but rarely do you watch it, you want to look outside any chance you get. Read entire member review >>
Our Cabin was a perfect size and location for my husband and I. It was clean when we needed it to be, but we were never bothered or pestered (our stateroom attendant was like a cleaning ninja). We found that it was quiet in terms of not being close to everything (2 floors down from the main buffet and far from the casino and main entertaining areas and anchor at the front of the ship. We would book in this same location on this ship in a heart beat! Read entire member review >>
We had such a lovely cabin with a bottle of champagne waiting for us in a bucket of ice. There was fresh fruit everyday....apples, oranges and pears. Canapés were delivered late in the afternoon. A piece of chocolate candy was on our pillow every evening and sometimes we got a towel in the shape of a bunny. Read entire member review >>
We were in this stateroom because the aft cc staterooms on the M-class ships have a huge balcony. We have been in this same stateroom on two other M-class ships. So this is a stateroom we like very much. It's good size and service was very good. Read entire member review >>
A CC1 rear facing AFT with extended covered balcony. Room had some minor broken hooks and trim wear/peeling. Probably not updated in the Solticizing. Mini Bar frig was broken and had to be replaced. Room air was not working and had to be fixed. Both were taken care of within 1 hour of being reported. Air stopped working again last night of cruise but felt it was probably ship wide that the temperature was higher. When leaving port and heading out to sea, engines were running near full speed, so it seemed with the churning of the ocean, and their was a constant thump which was initially thought to be the bass of sail away band 3 decks up but it continued until our next port of call 2 days later. There is very little foot traffic in this area. Announcements are hard to make out unless door to hallway is opened. Read entire member review >>
Wonderful location with huge balcony. Right below the buffet deck so you hear some noise when they set up for the morning, but nothing so loud that we were disturbed. Would book this room again. Read entire member review >>
9162 - A C1 Concierge Class cabin on the aft of the ship. It's a quiet location with minimal traffic in the hallway, but not too far from the elevator; noise from moving furniture or the band on the deck above (restaurant/bar) may be a minor problem at times. The other side of that coin is that you have quick access to the buffet restaurant one flight up. The steward for this cabin is also the butler for the corner suites so it's a high standard of service. Very large verandah, quite private, with a view of where you've been; completely protected from the wind, with plenty of shaded and sunny space. We found the closet and bathroom adequate, though small. Read entire member review >>
We loved our stateroom. Great mid-ship location. Close enough to both elevators without hearing them at all. It was across from the crew prep kitchen but we never heard them coming and going (and I'm the type who asks NEVER to be near the hotel elevator or ice machine. We loved our balcony and used it for breakfast and evening cocktails.
Storage in the room is amazingly efficient. We had four suitcases between us as well as carry-on items and everything stowed perfectly in the closets drawers, desk/vanity and bathroom with room to spare. We are in the process of buying a trailer and if we could find one with as much storage as this room we would love it!
The bed is a little uncomfortable and by the end of the cruise we were both had sore necks. Supposedly part of our Concierge class was a pillow choice but it was never offered to us and we didn't ask so...
Loved having the robes provided. Read entire member review >>
Our Cabin was 8045. The room was quite good. The balcony was over-sized with an extra triangular piece which increased the usable space by 58% (I used a tape measure). The view was partially obstructed looking towards the stern due to window cleaning equipment. Read entire member review >>
Overall impression very nice. The cabin while smaller than mini-suites on HAL and Princess, was quite luxurious. The bathroom was compact and not luxurious at all, but the shower was very large. The huge rear verandah needs some heavy cleaning with a power washer. Also the verandah does not get much of a breeze even when underway. Definitely would be better in a temperate climate.

Balconies on the 7th floor aft are wonderful. About 10 x 20 in size, with heavy canvas over most of the area so you can sit out even if drizzling. These are Concierge 1 cabins, well worth the price. We were in room 7203. We did have balcony envy looking down and seeing the balconies for the suites on the 6th floor!! Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was great. We were next to our friends and their parents, they had adjoining cabins, which made it easier to throw small parties during special times. While we sailed up to Hubbard Glacier, and through the inside passage we all gathered in our friends room. The balcony was great, and I always encourage people to get as much cabin space as they can afford.
You wouldn't think it would be that important, but it is nice to have a balcony in Alaska. Read entire member review >>
