In these stylish 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.
Cabin is ok but most be the smallest balcony room i had with about 12 cruises.. Bed are a real problem for me uncomfortable and you better ask for MANY pillows they are flat... My understanding is this is fleet wide.... Read entire member review >>
Cabin was small. I would prefer drawer space at desk instead of cupboards. Bathroom floor was gross. I also prefer an open trash can...I had to open it with the handle each time to throw in trash and then felt like I needed to wash my hands again. Read entire member review >>
Cabin needs to be updated. Newer ships have storage areas that are much better designed . Furnishings looking a bit shabby; bathroom had cracked tiles, mirror chipped. On the plus side, everything was very clean. Bed linens crisp and towels fluffy; everything fresh. Toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, body lotion) in good supply; had to request cotton balls and q-tips. Cabin stewards were great in and out very quickly; we hardly saw them.

Not a great location for someone who gets seasick? It's the highest deck and almost directly behind the bridge. We had rough seas the first full day, so we got both the side to side and forward to aft pitching. Ick! They don't consider it an obstructed cabin, but there's a large overhang above the balcony, and the solid wall to the bridge one cabin forward. But with the cold, rainy, foggy sea days we had, we didn't get to use the balcony much at all. I really wished I bought an oceanview on 2 or 3 instead. Read entire member review >>
Loved the cabin we were in. 1 floor down from the buffett. No noise from above or below, relatively quiet.
Stateroom staff? The two people that were our attendants were excellent! Sabio was our main attendant and was so helpful and considerate. I can't say enough good things about him. We were in room 9138 (balcony) and 9136 (balcony). THE STAFF IS EXCELLENT!!!
There was an overhang so it was difficult to see the sky at night. Read entire member review >>
First Steward was pleasant, but could not get cabin problems fixed. Second steward was pleasant but he could not get closet door hinge fixed or balcony swept - very frustrating. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was in good condition, although as others have mentioned some updating will be needed in the near future. There was nothing that was in poor repair…just showing its age. Bathroom was small, but with a relatively roomy shower. There is plenty of storage space and the standard balcony is a good size. I think we had the best view while docked in Bermuda by being on the starboard side – we had the whole of the Great Sound and the rest of the island in the distance. However, I've been told the ships can dock in the opposite direction, which would give the port side the view. I guess we got lucky. The bed was comfortable, and we brought along a travel-sized surge protector to expand the two 110-volt outlets provided. My wife thought the hair dryer took much longer to dry than the one she has at home, but it did the job eventually. Ladies, please note this stateroom did NOT include a makeup mirror. Pack accordingly. Ice stocked regularly by our stateroom attendants. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin steward was fantastic. On one night, our grandson decided he would like to stay in our cabin. I let the steward know and in a flash he accommodated us. Great job! Read entire member review >>
We almost never saw the room stewards, yet the room was always impeccably maintained. In other words, they were everything you would ever want in a room steward (AND MORE!) Read entire member review >>
OK, but needs some repairs, like hole in the baseboard near the TV. Balcony needs some cleaning as well.
Bathroom needs a lot of caulking work in the shower area, shower curtain shows its age. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was across from crew service door so had some concerns but actually had no issues on noise. Liked ease of use of shower. Some wear and tear but overall liked the cabin and location. Read entire member review >>
loved the balcony to sit and watch the water go by. clean, good storage, great cabin steward Susan! room service on time the day we sailed into Bermuda and it was worth getting up early to see the docking and blue waters! Read entire member review >>
Our stateroom was spacious and included a queen sized bed, love seat and table, a bathroom with shower, a balcony large enough to seat two and a table. The room had plenty of storage with hangers for clothes, a hair dryer, stocked bar and bath robes. The room attendants were pretty haphazard and did not restock the room with the proper amount of towels, shampoo & conditioner. When we told the lead attendant on the floor he was quick to blame his colleges rather than just taking care of it. They did try to make it up to us by leaving a bottle of champagne and cheese plate in our room that evening.
The last night of the cruise, a pair of chocolates in an unsealed wrapper held closed with a piece of tape was left for us. They just did not seem sanitary enough to eat. I believe having the gratuity included in the price of the trip can lead to sub-par service, although I am not certain that this was the case. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was tight, but had some nice features. Lots of closet space, ok bathroom. However, the Interactive menu on the TV had issues 3 of the 8 days and the channels provided were very few and mainly world news or Spanish TNT or TBS. Read entire member review >>
Cabins are small, but clean and well organized. There was plenty of storage and the shower was a nice size. As others have stated, the Summit is an older ship and shows a little wear on the balcony and in the tile work of the bathroom. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was fine, with good storage and average sized balcony. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean and tastefully decorated. The bathroom was showing some age, as other reviewers have commented, with a cracked tile here and spotty caulking there, but nothing that bothered me and in fact I thought the shower was one of the more larger, comfortable ones I've had in a standard balcony stateroom. Connie, our cabin steward and her assistant did a wonderful job, and always greeted us warmly when we saw them. She introduced herself within minutes of us entering the cabin for the first time, and went over various details with us. Read entire member review >>
The location was fairly quiet, and had a good view from the balcony. However, the sliding door lock was broken, and the latch lock that was added did not keep the door closed tightly enough in the case of strong winds. One night this allowed the wind to squeal or howl through the room all night. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was in the middle of the deck. The location on deck 7 was perfect since we could go in any direction for either the aft or forward elevators. Also, there were no cabins on the inside so there were less people passing our cabin. It was a quiet and enjoyable cabin. Read entire member review >>
Deck 6 fwd/stbd was chosen for quiet...cabins above, boutiques below, and specifically for triangular balcony that nearly doubled outside deck space and allows views to side and aft. It's an efficient use of space. Three of us filled all available storage with suitcases stored under bed, but we were never short of storage. When converted to bed the loveseat opens to the desk so balcony access is a big step over it, and I'm guessing it's not comfortable for anyone much beyond 5 feet. Wall hooks next to TV and minifridge are good places to dry things. Fwd stairwell/elevator lobby normally uncrowded except just before/after shows, and just around corner but we never heard anything. Bathroom was nicely finished, bright and ventilated. Read entire member review >>
Upholstered chair folded out into a twin bed. With bed open, there was virtually no floor space. Electrical outlet only on vanity, not in bathroom. Balcony had two chairs and one table. Good view. Read entire member review >>
We had two cabins: 6095 and 6093. The location was perfect: midship with easy access everywhere. The cabins seem smaller than on the Solstice, but were adequate. I would pick them again. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 9020 was nicely taken care of. Only complaint was pounding noises like someone walking rapidly in the Spa above. By the end of the cruise we decided that it must be staff running up and down the staff stairs and across to the other hallway from the staff area across the hall from us! Very odd... Otherwise, we liked the location high up on the ship. Also, the entrance to the Bridge was 6 rooms down the hall from us, but never heard or saw the officers coming or going. They were very quiet and professional. Read entire member review >>
The balcony cabin was slightly smaller than most I have stayed in at only 170sq ft
Older hair dryer located in bathroom instead of on vanity. Couch more the size of a love seat. Read entire member review >>
Except for being a little worn we very much liked the cabin. We were directly over the lifeboats and had an unobstructed view from our balcony. Bathroom was not large but more than sufficient for average sized people. Room was quiet but did pick up some outside noise during heavy seas. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was a category 2B Veranda. We were a few cabins aft of the bridge on deck 9. This meant we had a very short walk to the Spa/Pool areas as well as the Windjammer Buffet. A few floors down was the theater. Though we were very close to the elevators, the room was quiet. Read entire member review >>
good location but not great, halfway down a dead-end hall, loved the convenience to Deck 10, LONG way to the MDR, forget the immediate elevators after a show in the theater, didn't have a overhang on the balcony Read entire member review >>
We were in room 7110 which was a balcony cabin well located away from noise and had the typical "large" bathroom you find on ships and for which many ship comedians comment on and make jokes about. Read entire member review >>
7171- was small by industry standards,it was difficult to get around the bed, but the shower was spacious. The sofa was a chair and a half and the desk could not hold a laptop along with the ice bucket. The desk also had no drawers, it was not really functional as a desk. It had a great location. Not much motion and close to the aft elevators. The balcony was a bit larger than most because it is located on an angle. Closets are adequate. It was basically a quiet loction.
