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.
The stateroom had an amazing amount of storage space and nice touches like a night light in the bathroom (instead of blinding yourself with the regular light). It would have been nice if there were more power outlets; there were just 2 at the desk and none by the bed or in the bathroom. The balconies were a nice size and with the great weather, you could leave the door open all day while at sea to enjoy the breeze and ocean sounds. Our cabin steward, Cecile, was great; things were kept very tidy and he quickly helped with issues as needed (like a spilled champagne bottle). Read entire member review >>
Our room was great. No issues at all. Everything was shiny and new looking. The bed was super comfortable. Our shower had a broken tile, but it was fixed promptly. Lots of storage space and a generous balcony. Read entire member review >>
Room was nice and Jose did a great job keeping it clean for us. The design is a little weird. The bed is rounded and there is a large mirror in front of it. Not room for two people to pass so it made it awkward to move around. Read entire member review >>
We booked this cruise through a Celebrity agent. I specifically asked for an aft balcony cabin and we discussed cabin 9164, but when I received my confirmation it was for a cabin on the port side. During the booking process I expressed concern about the cabin being below the Sunset Bar but was repeated assured by the Celebrity agent that this would not be an issue, so I agreed to book the cabin. I called Celebrity back to cancel the booking and they indicated that cabin 9164 was approximately $600 more per person than what I had paid but they would give it to me for $100 more per person. Big mistake on my part.
The Sunset Bar is open until 11:30 pm every night. Anywhere between 12:00 midnight and 1:30 am the crew would drag all of the tables and chairs across the deck above us to reset the area for the next day. We called the Concierge desk every night and indicated that once again we had been awakened by the noise. They would apologize and promise it would not happen again, but it did every night while on the ship. They offered us vouchers for money off of our next cruise, but those did not make up for the lack of sleep. It was suggested that maybe we could just take a nap since our sleep was interrupted, but there was activity on that deck all day long so a nap was not an option - plus taking a nap than keeps you from partaking in afternoon activities - so it was not the best solution.
When we entered the cabin there was a strong, unpleasant odor. We found our cabin steward, Solome, and he immediately came in and poured something down the bathroom drain and some of the smell went away, but every time we would enter the cabin again there was a sour odor. We went to bed, found the mattresses to be very uncomfortable and in the morning when I rolled over i found the source of the sour odor - the mattress. I called the Concierge desk and asked that the mattresses be replaced because they were flat and bulging out at the sides from use and they smelled bad. They came up immediately and replaced the mattress pad and added a foam topper (that was too small for the mattresses) and the smell went away. I don't know what we slept on the first night, but it was pretty gross. They never did come back and replace the foam topper.
As for the cabin itself, it was an assisted cabin so it was wider and larger than the other aft cabins and the balcony was very large - plenty of room for my hammock. We really liked the cabin itself, and our stewards - Solome and Henrick - were excellent, but the location was not very well thought out. Read entire member review >>
Nice but somewhat tired. The size was average and kept clean some problems with the TV changer, a knob missing from the bathroom cabinet, and a small shower. The bed was OK and there was a lot of storage for two weeks of clothes. Read entire member review >>
We were upgraded from a 2B balcony stateroom to a 2C Concierge Class stateroom, #8086. The room was larger than we expected, with a flat screen TV, vanity, ¾ size couch, table, refrigerator, and a good size bathroom. The shower was larger than others we have had and the sink/vanity area had many storage areas. Storage throughout the cabin was great, and the faux wood finish made the room seem rather elegant. The balcony was approximately 5’ X 9’. It had some rust on it, but hey, it’s an ocean going vessel and by no means a deal breaker. Our room was truly an oasis at times for me while nursing my injured back. We were very pleased with this room all around. Read entire member review >>
Concierge cabins are larger than other balcony cabins and this one was fine. Only problem was that the toilet quit flushing about once a day. They corrected it fairly quickly, but it was an annoyance. Read entire member review >>
Cabin had all the amenities you would need, plus more. The service was excellent. No obstructed views. Got a great video leaving the harbour in NYC and saw the Statue of Liberty perfectly from our balcony. Read entire member review >>
Good location close to the forward elevators. Unobstructed view. Even though it is across from a crew access door, it was very quiet. This was our 2nd time in that cabin. We would pick it again. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was located in an excellent location, a very short walk to the midship elevators and stairs which got us to most venues on the ship. The room was very clean and roomy and we had nothing but a hallway outside our cabin door, so there was no noise at all. I wouldn't hesitate to book this cabin again. Read entire member review >>
The room was fine, no plumbing issues or loud noises, and the beds were relatively comfortable. Bedding was nice. Spacious for a cruise ship with lots of storage. Steward was wonderful and even made cute towel animals several night. Read entire member review >>
The service was great, but the actual cabin was a disaster. I never thought I would be put off by accommodations on a cruise, since all of my experiences have been wonderful and you acknowledge that the room will be a bit tight, but as mentioned in my full review, this was the worst part of a good cruise. The balcony was particularly bad. There were odd loose and rusty portions of the balcony floor, making one unable to walk barefoot on it. This made us spend very little time on the balcony at all, which is a waste considering the fees associated with it, and gorgeous the views are from it. Additionally, our last cruise on the Celebrity Equinox and other cruises had such beautiful balconies we spent many hours on them taking in the breathtaking scenery.
Also, the showers were designed in an odd fashion where there is a clingy shower curtain with rusty rings at the top, a crack in the wall below the shower head, and the inability to stand and take a shower without touching the clingy curtain (I am 5'4'' and very average/athletic build), and cannot imagine what it would be like for folks that are taller and wider.
While I like the cruise line, this aspect (the Celebrity Summit cruise cabin) will make it unlikely for me to return to this ship in the future. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was in a great location! TONS of storage. we had 2 night stands with 2 drawers each, storage on each side of the desk (2 shelves each), a couple of hooks on the wall, 3 wall storage cabinets - one had 5 drawers under the safe area and the other two were for hanging items and storing your luggage and bags. The balcony was spacious. Comfortable chairs that had a couple of reclining degrees. and a large round table - big enough to eat breakfast on. The TV is near the bed and not near the couch so if you like watching TV in Bed you are good to go! Read entire member review >>
Cabin was great as was balcony. The bathrooms are a bit small but to be expected on an older ship. The balcony afforded us great views while coming into ports or leaving. This cabin did a great job of fitting the bill for us and our luggage. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was a concierge class and I'm not convinced of the value of that, the daily canapés were ok but lacked imagination, Celebrity used to provide fresh flowers in the concierge cabin's but that seems to have gone now.We had a Veranda Room, the condition of the balcony was poor, the steel was rust stained and had been painted over multiple times with paint splashes all over the handrail wood and glass and onto the deck furniture also; this gave it a very shabby appearance. The bathroom in our cabin was in poor shape with poorly patched holes in the shower. The location of the cabin midway between the midship and aft elevators on the starboard side of the 8th floor was great, with easy access to the café and the pool decks and not too much traffic passing by, the balcony was sheltered by the overhanging oceanview restaurant which gave some shade and protection from the rain also.Overall though the cabin was in reasonable condition, the above is a function of the age of the ship.

Connecting door to 8111 which worked well for us as travelling with adult family. Normal sized balcony. No noise from other cabins. Some of the soft furnishings and towels were looking a little tired (holes in towels and tear in bed valance) but did not impact our enjoyment. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was always kept clean by room stewards. Lots of space and cupboards to put things in. Only sat on balcony a couple of times because of the time of year. When we returned one day from excursion, assistand room steward was washing down the railings and floor etc. on balcony Read entire member review >>
Didn't know what to expect, but we were very happy with our room. It was quiet, in a good location, very clean. My husband wishes it had been a little larger, especially the bathroom since he said he coud not dry himself off in it. (I had no problem). Read entire member review >>
9185. Clean, great balcony. Right under buffet though not noisy. Nice overhang. Plenty of storage space. Perfect for two people.9187. Room for five with pull-down berths and a convertible queen/two twin bed. Ask for twins to be converted. Increases space and head clearance this way. I would say 4 max to this cabin. If the chair bed was pulled out, you can't walk to the bathroom. Read entire member review >>
Cabin location was good as it was midway between the Mid and Aft elevators. It was convenient to the Oceanview cafe where we had may of our meals and we always took the aft elevators to dinner each night. Read entire member review >>
Very loud- across from a service door, underneath the buffet restaurant- heard carts rolling over our head for much of the night. My parents were in 9175 and called it the bowling alley over their head. That is a perfect description. Balcony was fine. Evening hors d' oeuvres were pretty disappointing (which I had heard about in advance- but didn't ask for the cheese and crackers as others had.) Read entire member review >>
Glad we upgraded. Our room was perfect. Only 3 couples upgraded to this deck & all of us were very happy with accommodations. We had a great view, closet was just right, bathroom wasn't too small (my significant other is 6'5" & did just fine in this smaller area), additional perks such as snacks, champagne, Egyptian cotton robes/towels, tote bags were nice additions.

8177 in conceriege class toward the aft of the ship. Small stateroom and small balcony like other outside veranda rooms. Quiet location. Nothing special although the fresh fruit, flowers, and afternoon snacks are a perk. We wouldn't have paid extra for this room but were able to get it for a lower price than we originally paid for a veranda stateroom in mid ship. Read entire member review >>
Our Concierge Club veranda stateroom (8072) was a good room, but the bathroom was not re-done during the Solticizing. The shower curtain was no problem, but the bathroom had a strong musty smell that was a bit much. A painter trolley was tied to our balcony, partially blocking our view. I don't remember seeing 8072 as partially obstructed, but a trolley that's moored to your balcony and that reaches up to the next deck sure counts as an obstruction in my book. My wife spoke to guest services, who told her that the cabin was indeed listed as an obstructed view cabin on the Celebrity website, and that we should have seen that when we booked. Wrong answer! I just now went through a booking process on Celebrity's website for a Summit southern Caribbean cruise, Concierge Club C2 cabin, and here's what it says: "Note: Staterooms 8047, 8048, 8049, 8050, 8051, 8052, 8053, 8054, 9040, 9042, 9044, 9045, 9046, 9047 and 9049 have partially obstructed views. Staterooms 8102, 8108, 9094 and 9100 have smaller verandas that are semi-private." So there'll be some 'splainin to be done about that. The veranda had 2 chairs and a table, and ample space for two. The room was a nice size, and was large enough for 3 people, but the vestibule is a choke point with the bathroom door opening opposite closet doors, which open against the entry door. The in-room PA speaker only worked part of the time. The in-room safe lost our combination twice, but the cabin attendant was quickly able to gain entry. The veranda slider was hard to open and close. It stuck somewhere on bottom runner. Our room attendant Sydney was superb. He worked for 2 days to get us the pillows that we requested. He was always around, and was always friendly and helpful. Read entire member review >>
Great balcony (overhang from "oceanview" added nice shade/wind protection). Connecting door allowed us to hear a bit of our neighbors, but not too bad. very close to aft elevators/stairs. One flight up for buffet. Spotless. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was in the perfect location - not noisy, not rocky, good view - althought somewhat obstructed by something outside; doors by closet and bathroom could easily be in the way of each other when we were getting ready for dinner, etc. Very clean. Read entire member review >>
The room is below the pool area a lot of noise during the day, quiet at night unless something is happening in the area. The overhang of the pool deck is not convenient when sitting on the balcony, can not see the night sky. This side of the ship always seemed to have the worst views while in port. The room itself is in Aquaclass and has a few amenities that others would not. Overall it is the same as any other balcony cabin. Read entire member review >>
Great cabin! We always felt like we were the only ones on board while in our cabin-quiet when we wanted. We were near the library, which helped, I think. We loved going out in the mornings to see the ship dock and loved to see the sunrise and set. The space was perfect for the 2 of us! Read entire member review >>
Our 8th deck concierge class cabin was VERY small. Had to close some doors to open others. No walk-in closet. Closet doors and bathroom doors always banging into each other. Bath was small with plastic shower curtain instead of door. Water puddled on floor after showering. One bath towel per person. Rust and dirt accumulated in tiled areas. Bed was sloped on one side where people had used it to sit on. Hard to stay in bed. Otherwise comfortable. Balcony was nice with comfortable furniture. Cabin was pretty quiet. Mini bar items very pricey. Large bottled water was $4. TV was antiquated with domed screen and extremely LOW def. Was hard to read words on the screen. It was decorated okay, although dated. And once you squeeze past the closet and bed, the sitting area was a decent size. Read entire member review >>
We were on the 8th floor in a concierge 1 cabin. It was identical to the cabin we had on the Solstice in January. It was somewhat small, but we love the balcony. It was toward the rear of the ship, quiet and pretty comfortable. Read entire member review >>
Good view, except when you looked to the left from the balcony, there was a ladder thing erected for the crew. This blocked some very good camera shots. Also, in the morning, you could hear them dragging deck chairs around the pool area. Other than that, it was a good location, midship, close to the Waterfall Cafe, the pool etc. Read entire member review >>
Our Cabin 9056 was great.
Read some comments on noise from pool area above. I am up early and did notice some moving about from above but I'm not a late sleeper so it didn't bother me.
Keep it in mind though and you might wish to move forward 6 cabins or so or drop down to level 8 if this is a concern.
Cabin was clean. Did not find the hairdryer till the last day. Its kind of hidden in the under sink cabinet.
Older box TV not a flat screen as advertised. Not there to watch TV anyway.
I liked the room. No obstructions off balcony. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 8115. Great View. Plenty of storage. Bring your own hairdryer (both in cabin not powerful). Close to main elevators but did not hear a bunch of noise in hallway. Steward and assistant were awesome. Concierge class get you champagne day 1, Robes, a beach bag, and binoculars. Read entire member review >>
C2 category - Concierge Balcony - nice room, fresh flowers in the room, hor derves (really weren't much and they were pretty much the same every day), room service was very good, didn't use the other benefits. This room was supposed to be a little bigger than the regular balcony, but it didn't seem to be. Room had a King bed, loveseat, vanity area and typical bathroom. I hate the shower curtains they stick to you while you are trying to shower (and I'm a small person), they really need shower doors instead. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 8090 (Concierge Class C2 - Starboard). Adequate cabin though a bit tight for two adults. Plenty of drawers, shelves, and closet space and enough room to put suitcases under the bed. In room safe, fresh flowers, daily afternoon canapes, welcome champagne, bath robes, and pillow menu. Balcony was small but adequate with two chairs and a table. Was directly across the hall from a service closet, but this did not cause any issues with noise. Read entire member review >>
The cabin space was fine. Lots of coat hangers and cupboards.The balcony was quite small and the upper deck protruded above the balcony below. The evening sun still managed to reach us I am glad to say. As this was an upgrade we were more than happy with the accommodation. Read entire member review >>
8094 Concierge Class. Standard size but with a larger than normal shower. The balcony felt cramped with 2 chairs and a rather large table. Perhaps 2 loungers and a smaller table would make it more user friendly. Read entire member review >>
Concierge Cabin 8063 on the Celebrity Summit is in excellent condition with a great unobstructed port side veranda view. The room is closer to the front of the ship so there is a little bit of a walk to the main elevators, but we did not mind that. The main bed is next to the bathroom. The sofa converts to a bed for a third person and there is plenty of closet space. Luggage fits very well under the bed. Very quiet at night with no noise coming from the deck's above or below since they are all staterooms as well. There was only the occasional kid sprinting down the hallway but that stopped by about 11pm. Read entire member review >>
