We sailed on the Reflection for 21 nights last October and had a cabin on Deck 3, only 4 cabins in from the main foyer. We were amazed at how quiet it was and loved the location and convenience. So, when booking the Solstice, we chose this deck again - 9 cabins in from the foyer. We were amazed at the difference in noise levels. Firstly there was a constant loud, whining noise - 24 hours a day - it never stopped. No one could tell us what it was and the head of house keeping was less than helpful. The noise from the bands in the main foyer late at night was also excessive. We were told that the fire doors would be closed at night to reduce the noise and when they were, it was acceptable. However, staff kept opening them. We would call Guest Relations and ask for them to be shut again but they rarely remained closed for long. There were no other cabins available. My pet hate is people who let those heavy cabin doors slam shut. OMG how hard is it to gently close the door. There should really be a sign on the back of the door asking people to consider their fellow guests and DO NOT SLAM THE DOOR. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was one of the best that we have come across (although they may want to re-think the wardrobe arrangement as neither of the doors open far enough to gain easy access to your clothes)Bathroom was modern and spacious, with glass sliding doors to the shower. Read entire member review >>
3102 Handicap Accessible- good cabin- near stairs and elevator; great location; not noisy- occasionally heard staff door nearby but that was rare. We only wish there was a lock on the inside of the door and a laundry line. Good cabin- really no problems and we would book it again if status warranted it. Read entire member review >>
The solarium is beautiful and outside you always got a turn in spa. Overall its a pretty good holiday but it would of been so much better if there wasn't so many stuff ups from the Celebrity side of things. Some officers acted like they were above you, as their paying guest on board I didn't like that,but I must say the Captain did a amazing job keeping us out of danger from the crazy weather.

well appointed cabin. Has an LCD TV that runs Apple TV software. We found it didn't work that well: Response was slow and we had several crashes while watching movies.
Closet was awkward with sliding doors where the hinges were such that they could jam your fingers. One half of the closet was obstructed by the sofa, and the other half by the safe.
Balcony was obstructed, but only below the railing. View of the sea was unobstructed.
Beds were very comfortable. Shower was spacious. And the room is quiet - no next door noise! Read entire member review >>
We found evidence of prior cabin holders in bathroom drawers. The T.V. was spotted. The cabin didn't smell clean and when I dropped a ring, I discovered food and debris under the pullout couch. Cabin staff were not efficient or friendly. Read entire member review >>
As stated, the new improved layout of the cabins have increased the available space for suitcases (under the bed,) increased overhead locker space above the bed, doors that open outwards so that there is no chance of being trapped between the outer door and the bathroom door. We were midships on deck 8 on 'the hump' so we had a slightly larger balcony (Grade 'A1') and by having the partition opened between our two cabins had a very large sitting area outside. The balcony furniture was very comfortable and looked as if it had all recently been renewed.
