In this spacious 191-square-feet of living space, you'll have a lovely sitting area, amenities galore and a generous view of the ocean thanks to the floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors. Step out onto the veranda to see the view up close and personal.
Wonderful cabin, corner FV with very large deck. Had a large table with 4 chairs and 2 very nice deck lounges. Separate bedroom and sitting area. There were only 2 of us so we had lots of extra room, storage space Read entire member review >>
Very large cabin that was perfect for our family of four. Celebrity advertises this as a cabin for five, but the bedding includes a queen bed in the "main" room, a fold out twin mattress and a convertible couch for one. So, if your children are like mine (8 year old boy and 10 year old girl) and do not want to sleep in the same bed, this is really a room for four. There is a LOT of noise from scraping chairs from the Ocean View Cafe which is directly above. Read entire member review >>
You can hear people in the cabins on either side of youLooks are outdated and not fresh at all with lots of little things broken (I.e. patio doors)Older kids will figure out the patio doors quickly and you can't lock them making it a safety concern Read entire member review >>
If you can get a Family Veranda cabin on a Millenium-class ship, particularly at one of the aft corners, you owe it to yourself to do so.
Two flat screen TVs, tonnes of space for storage and moving about, and that enormous balcony which is great for entertaining guests. Read entire member review >>
Excellent cabin. Family Veranda stateroom with a corner aft balcony. The cabin was huge with a separate sleeping and sitting area. Tons of closet space and drawers. The balcony was huge!!! It was fabulous! We were on deck 8 aft so the aft lounge / dining area was two decks above us. We enjoyed this because the steel drum musicians would play there about 2 times a day and we could hear them from our balcony. PLEASE NOTE: Now some people MIGHT not like that, so be aware that you will definitely hear music from the aft upstairs lounge area that is at the back of the ship / buffet area.

The family veranda's did not sell out and were still available a week prior to sailing, when they are available close to sailing they open them up for couples so we changed our cabin from a Concierge 2 to the family veranda.
We were in a C-2 on our first cruise with celebrity and will use that for reference in comparing this cabin. The corner family veranda 8166 is the best cabin I have ever had, I would take it over all the concierge cabins and most of the suites. It has 2 separate rooms divided by partition. It has 2 vinyl couches in the sitting room. It is clean and well cared for. It's claim to fame however, is the balcony. It is 6 times larger than the C-3 or C-2 balconies. It has 5 lounge chairs, 4 standard chairs and 2 tables and room for more. It has a 270 degree view as it sticks out on the side and you can look all the way down the starboard side and it sticks out in the back and you can see all the way across the aft. I could have spent the entire cruise on the balcony! Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was 7202, an aft Family View. Loved, loved, loved the amount of storage... there were drawers we never used. It was easy unpacking with all that extra space... two closets plus all the drawer storage. Huge corner balcony was fantastic; there was a square table with four chairs near the sliding glass door; there were also 4 lounge chairs, and room for more. The extra space in the cabin really made the cruise a pleasure; I am so glad we tried the room and will certainly look for them again in the future. Read entire member review >>
