We've always had Celebrity Suites on previous X cruises. They have always been great.
However, this one blew us away!
Fab decor. Good-sized rooms.
Lounge: lots of cupboards, drawers, a TV, BOSE docking station etc, coffee table, safe, sofa, minibar (free and restocked each day), wine-cooler cabinet with wines in ---but you pay a high price for them ---the amarone costs about $40 a bottle in the UK but Celebrity wanted over $200!), armchair, mirrors, wardrobe...
Bedroom: cupboards, drawers, another TV, mirror, comfortable bed
Bathroom: bath tub with jucuzzi and rainwater shower, toilet, cupboards, mirror and a one/two way screen which was translucent/transparent with the flick of a switch.
Staff: Joey was a good bulter although we did have a grumble about laundery at one point. John, our cleaner, was excellent and so interesting to talk with... Happy to have them both again! Read entire member review >>
Superb, on-par with 5-star hotels we've stayed at. Even the corridor leading from the private access door is luxurious and made us feel special. The location of the room on the 14 level was fine, although some people might not enjoy the movement of the ship being higher up. Read entire member review >>
Signature suite cabin had high ceilings, large veranda, large bathroom with jetted tub and rain shower, a little tight at the end of the bed yet a nice nice living room with bar and mini fridge. Interesting there was a jetted tub and rain shower on the balcony. Read entire member review >>
What an absolutely amazing suite. The two previous cruises we had were on board the Eclipse and were concierge class staterooms. We decided to upgrade to this suite for this particular cruise to celebrate a special anniversary. To say we were stunned is an understatement, the suite is over twice the size of cabins we had become used to.
Shower and hot tub on the balcony, shower and hot tub in the bathroom, separate bedroom, beautiful sofa in the living area that converted into a comfortable double bed and enough drawer and closet space that you could ever want. Infact we never used all the space and there were a couple of drawers empty. Two massive flat screen televisions which were hooked up to Bose sound systems, it made viewing the tvs a delight (especially when watching films or listening to music) We had friends who had travelled with us, celebrate our anniversary in the cabin. In total there were 7 people in the cabin and there was still room to spare, such is the space you get with this suite.
The balcony is vast, and again all 7 of us spent time on the balcony and there was easily room for more. The hot tub and shower are an excellent feature on the balcony and it is a sublime experience soaking in hot bubbly water while watching the world go by. The cabin is located on deck 14, so the views from all the way up there are absolutely amazing.
The décor of the suite is beautiful and tasteful, nothing is cheap looking and the suite was so easy to relax in. One feature of the bathroom which is very neat is the glass panel that you can see through into the bedroom or vice versa. At the flick of a switch the glass become opaque so you can’t see through it, so most importantly nobody can see you having a shower or bath etc. We never tired of switching the glass on and off.
Of course all this comfort and space does come at a price, but if you want the luxury that this suite offers for a special occasion then I would highly recommend that you pay the extra for it. You will not be disappointed.
If privacy is a factor for you on your cruise then again these suites will not disappoint. The 5 Signature suites are located on deck 14 in a private location on the ship. You have to use your pass card to gain access to a private corridor before you actually enter your cabin. We never heard any noise at all throughout the cruise even though most nights there was music and dancing in the observation lounge which is situated right next door. The area really is that private and quiet.
The mini bar is a little larger than other cabins we have been in and there is also a separate chill cabinet for more bottle of beer/water. There is also a separate wine cooler for those that like to have a tipple of the grape variety. Several bottles can be stored and plenty of glasses are supplied to match whatever it is you are drinking at the time.
The ceilings in the suite are very high and give the suite that extra airy feeling, huge glass wall to ceiling windows also add to that extra space feeling and allow a lot of light into the cabin. There is only one way out onto the balcony and that is through the door from the living area, the large sliding door is very light to use and it is very easy to slide the door open or shut. Heavy curtains hang along the whole length of the window areas and these can be pulled back to maximise the amount of light that you want to let into the suite area, the curtains are also lined with an inner net curtain. The large heavy curtain can be pulled back while allowing you to pull the net across the windows, this allows for light to enter the rooms but helps to filter out any strong sunlight from coming into the rooms, this allows for the rooms to be cool and bright.
Air conditioning and heating are also available throughout the whole suite, if you are finding it a bit warm then close the windows and crank up the air conditioning. The system works very well and cools the rooms down quickly. Similarly, if you are feeling a bit cold then just turn up the heating. The heating and cooling system works extremely well and is very easy to use. There are plenty of light switches in evidence and these control a multitude of lights found throughout the suite. All of these also work on dimmer switches so you can find the perfect balance of lighting to suit your mood or likes.
In summary the Signature Suites are beautiful rooms and are perfect for relaxing in or entertaining if you so wish. The extra space really does make them a special place to be in. They may not be affordable to most, but if you can spare the extra to upgrade then give these suites a try. You will not be disappointed. Read entire member review >>
This is our "go to" cabin on Reflection. Located down a private hallway on Deck 14, these 5 cabins feature floor to ceiling windows (the ceiling are 10' tall), large deck with two chaise lounges, a large round table and an awesome outdoor shower/jacuzzi. The bathroom is large and there is plenty of cabinet and drawer space. Celebrity has contracted with Glichrest and Soames to offer a X branded amenity line, replacing the Bulgari bath products.

Our second time in this category of suite. Amazing! Large floor to ceiling windows, a separate living area and bedroom, fantastic bath and large verandah with the most awesome outdoor shower. The Signature Suites and Reflection Suite are accessed through a private door that is not accessible to anyone else. The Butler for the Signature Suites is the Head Butler for the ship, so you know you are going to be provided with outstanding service and attention. The Signature Suite also includes access to Michael's Club, a bar/lounge accessible only to Celebrity, Royal, Signature, Penthouse and Reflection Suite guests. The Signature Suite is one of the best values in the Suite category. We loved our second stay here and have already booked another cruise in the Signature Suite for the October 2015 TA from Rome. We are hoping that Celebrity includes the outdoor shower feature on the new "Edge" platform ships. Read entire member review >>
This is just a quick review of the Signature Suite we in on our May 2013 Mediterranean cruise.What can I say but it was worth every penny to upgrade to this room. First the 9 foot ceiling are just amazing. After staying in our suite #4103 and then going to see a standard ceiling height room, you truly appreciate the open feeling. That and the floor to ceiling windows.Every thing about the room was great. There were three of us, myself and my wife and our 11 year old son, and we had more than enough room. Our son slept in the pullout couch and he said it slept great. There is plenty of storage space in the two closets. The bathroom is great. Tons of counter space and storage and the shower/tub .... Wow. It has a glass side panel and the glass wall to the bedroom is electrochromatic (turns opaque with a flip of the switch). The adjustable bed in the bedroom was also a nice feature, especially the massage function after a day of touring.As far as noise, didn't really notice any. Several times the band was playing in the Sky lounge and you could just barely tell in the hall way outside the room and there was no sound coming into the room. And I didn't hear anything coming from up above, ever. In fact, it may have been one of the quieter rooms on the ship. Only thing was being up on Deck 14 and at the front there was a little more motion with rough seas.Having a butler did have its perks. From dinner reservations to breakfast served on the veranda in the mornings. If there was ever an issue she took care of it. That really made it easy to get to the shore excursions. Would we pick these rooms again? Yes, in fact we have booked another cruise one room over. Read entire member review >>
