Cramped, but very functional. very quiet, cannot hear engines nor neighbors. balcony is a must for Alaskan coastline. Hair dryer anemic and tiny, one robe in room. Binoculars were broken. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was kept spotless, but was very small for 3 people. The couch had holes in it and the deck furniture paint was peeling. The larg bathroom was nice but it came at the cost of cabin space and storage. Read entire member review >>
We chose to be at the back of the ship this time. LOVED the views -- especially coming and going from Sydney --- sunrises or sunsets, whatever the case.
STORAGE: excellent storage for suitcases under the bed. Cupboards over the bed we used for things we didn't need to get often -- very roomy and deep. Desk unit has drawer and bookshelves and room on top. Closet comes with hangers -- although we always bring some of our own. Closet also has shelves and safe. Bathroom shelves and drawers are more than ample. 2 hooks on cabin walls and also on back of bathroom door.
BED: very comfortable! Turn down service every evening.
BATHROOM: We've always been amazed at the Celebrity bathrooms -- very roomy shower with excellent pressure, glass doors, and ladies, there is a wonderful little steel bar thing at just the right height to rest your foot on to shave your legs! I always miss it when I go home! Sink is ample and again water pressure is good. Towels are good quality. Kleenex provided as well as very nice amenities (shampoo, conditioner, body wash, soap).
DECK: last time we were in a on-the-hump side of ship cabin that therefore had a bigger veranda. But -- there's only the two of us so how much space do you need? Deck furniture as I mentioned is a bit old -- but comfortable and adequate. Views from back of ship are great!
We had one rough sea night -- 10 meter high waves (that's 30 feet!) and very high winds. Luckily not until middle of night. We had glasses fall off the table, closet doors sliding back and forth etc. At first we thought it was because we were at the back of the ship. But many many folks faced the same situation -- that rough of seas -- Staff was on call all night to help folks. We just got to laughing it was almost comical. Kind of the type of story you tell, and those waves get higher and higher in the telling -- sort of like the camping stories that are repeated in family lore -- not the lovely weather, but the night the tent almost blew away! :)
It's cruising -- have to keep your sense of humor and Dramamine on hand! :) Read entire member review >>
An aft cabin in Concierge Class on deck nine, our stateroom was a bit cozy for two parents and a young adult. This category worked well for us when our son was younger, however, when one is in college being relegated to the couch for a week borders on punishment. Instead of a pullout sofa, there was a slender mattress placed atop the couch cushions. Our good-natured student reported it was more comfortable than most pull-outs. Storage was a challenge, what with the need to have plenty of outdoor wear, however we made do in a disorganized way. The balcony did have soot and the outdoor furniture looked worn, yet neither potential issue kept us from enjoying the views of ocean, ice, glacier, whales and seals, mountains, and daybreaks and twilight.

This cabin was wonderful. This cabin was on the resort deck (12th floor), aft and in the center of the ship. It had a floor to ceiling sliding glass door to the balcony which gave you a panoramic view of the beautiful scenery in Alaska. It was a little hike to the elevators but you can work off some to the delicious food you eat on this fabulous ship. The balcony is also covered on top. The cabin had an amazing amount of storage space and the bed was very comfortable. On the down side you can hear some noise from the Ocean View Restaurant which is right above this room but it did not bother us. It is a great location, being on the pool deck and close to the upstairs restaurant and bar. We would definitely book this room again. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was in an excellent position in the center of the ship and we did use the balcony very often. The days we passed glaciers were a day that you definitely needed the balcony. What views!!!! The cabins were clean. We had fruit and appetizers each day. Read entire member review >>
We have always selected Concierge Class C1, we prefer an Aft location and we enjoy the extra bits along the way. We have an allergy to seafood, so the afternoon Canapés
were made to order and enjoyed. Nothing like sailing out of Sydney in the early evening sipping on some bubbles and relaxing...This particular Stateroom is right under the bar area for the Ocean View Café, some previous comments had said it could be noisey due to the traffic above. we really had no issues with this, there was the occasional bump, but nothing to keep us distracted. We also liked the covered overhang on the larger balcony. Read entire member review >>
Small balcony cabin with two uncomfortable single beds pushed together. Old style flat screen TV with free movies that don't work and limited channels.
Clean bathroom with low pressure shower. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin 1253 was comfortable enough, but forget about the free canapes each afternoon that you get in Concierge class, they were disgusting. Cabin steward needs more training in making towel animals! Read entire member review >>
The cabin was lovely and roomy enough. I give it ten out of ten. Everything I needed incl binoculars were in our cabin. The cabin was roomy enough and the bathroom was too. Didn't have to bring any amenities only toothbrush, toothpaste and deodorant. Everything in the cabin was spot on! Read entire member review >>
The Celebrity Balcony Stateroom (Concierge class) was small and narrow – hard to walk around the bed! The storage was better than Royal Princess with 6 drawers in the cabinet next to the refrigerator. The MINI BAR filled up the refrigerator - no room for anything we wanted to put inside. Two throw pillows made the plastic couch fairly comfortable. The bed was wonderful, as were the linens, but a small blanket for an afternoon nap would have been appreciated. We used the provided Beach Towels instead. The bathroom was very nice; not roomy but very adequate. Stateroom Service was pretty good – but nothing extraordinary. Read entire member review >>
1154. Nice, convenient location. Cabin felt small. Tiny, awkward closet that was hard to get to. Bathroom pretty, fairly spacious for a cruise ship bathroom. Liked the glass door on the shower. Quiet. Expected more for a "Concierge Class" cabin. Read entire member review >>
Loved our cabin location - it was way down the hall and very quiet. Didn't get any smoke as some had wondered about. Great big balcony with a great view - bed was very hard, bedding was comfortable though. Used the couch to store all our stuff on. Read entire member review >>
Great room and great location. We enjoyed being on the port side of the ship and just aft. The room was well appointed, ample storage for our clothes, toiletries, shoes and luggage. The sound-proofing is amazing, we only heard the voices of our neighbors if we were both on the balcony. Occasionally, we heard footsteps of someone walking heavily, but that was it. The only think we would have preferred is to somehow be able to hear the occasional announcement that was broadcast over the speakers. They are not piped in to the room, so you either need to open your door to try to hear it or not hear it at all. They say you can view on channel 5, however, announcements are not stored, so if you miss it - you miss it.Nice product in the bathroom and plush towels, robes and soft linens.

Our CC group did a cabin crawl and after viewing all the cabins I am still confused about the different classifications of Concierge Cabins. There was no difference in the size, only the layout arrangement. The showers are great in size and features, the general bath layout is good. Closet is too small and poorly arranged. The cages under the beds are useless and take up too much room. Way too easy to slam the door if the veranda door is open, it is almost dangerous. 1008 is a Starboard room 4 back from the Bridge on the same level, so any view forward is blocked by the Bridge. It is a long way down the hall, but then we like Bow cabins. Read entire member review >>
Concierge class on 12th floor. Large balcony but rooms the same size as standard balcony cabins. Room 2109 has a partially restricted vertical view because of situation under overhanging Ocean View cafe. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was good as many people have said the bathroom with a shower door does make a difference. Our bed was next to the balcony, we feel the balcony was a bit small but you could also say bit enough for two people. There was enough space for storing everything one thing I did miss was the washing line to hang wet clothes. The TV was good also. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was very good, facilities were firstclass, everything worked well. The bathroom was extremely well appointed with good facilities. Probably the best cabin we have experienced on any ship. Read entire member review >>
cabin was very nice. nice balcony, good sized bathroom, very quiet location. could use some additional closet space. esp. for a two week or longer cruise. Good amenities and TV service. Read entire member review >>
Very nice balcony - great view but a little short on privacy (not overwhelmingly, just not totally "secure"). Towards the BACK of the ship would be better for getting to common areas of the ship. Read entire member review >>
Had C1 (Concierge Class) Aft Balcony on Panorama Deck (9th deck) Room comfortable but tight sqeeze if more than 2. 2 Reclining chairs with foot stools and nice table on balcony but not deep like other aft balconies. Not really covered so it gets very hot with direct sun most of the time. The balconies are tiered and you can see the balcony below and the balcony above can see you if you stand near the railing. Views are fantastic. No noise which was a blessing. Probably wouldn't pay extra for the Concierge Class again. The fresh flowers were a nice touch along with the selection of pillows but not sure the additional fare is worth it. Read entire member review >>
We were in C1, Concierge class, room 1044. We had a larger balcony since we it was on a diagonal. The room was always immaculately clean. The bathroom was very large, with it's own shower doors. It had tons of storage and it was so cute. The room itself had a fold out leather couch, a small desk with chair connected to the mini-fridge, drawers, and mounted flat-screen TV. The sliding glass door was from ceiling to floor. There was storage above the bed. Our beds were very comfortable. It was a great space and very quiet! Read entire member review >>
Upon entering our cabin, we were happily surprised at its size and beautiful decor. The bed was very comfortable and the large flat screen tv, vanity/desk, large leather sofa were welcoming and contemporary. The veranda was huge! There were two heavy mesh chairs with foot rests and a teak topped table. The panels beneath the railing were glass/plexi so we could always see the water and beautiful scenery.

Our cabin was very nice and located on Deck 12. It was on the resort deck where the pool, hot tubs, spa and workout rooms were. Plenty of space for two of us and lots of storage compared to older ships. Read entire member review >>
