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.
The cabin was well appointed and very clean. The en-suite was bigger than I expected. The only negative that I could say about the room is that there is really no room for large suitcases if they don't fit under the bed, but that is trivial in an otherwise spacious cabin. The balcony in our cabin could be used even when at sea. The protection from the forward suites and the ocean view staterooms was fantastic. You could sit on the balcony and enjoy the views without being blown away or getting wet. Read entire member review >>
The smallest balcony cabin I have seen. Instead of a sofa or love seat this cabin category had a chair that made into a single bed. No way two people could sit on it. The room decor was drab and lacked color. It was decorated in brown and a deep red color which made the cabin seem dark. There was one closet for hanging clothes and another with 6 drawer for storage. The desk was small with two areas with small drawers for storage. The cabin was designed for 4 people (a fold down bunk was in the ceiling). How 4 people could or would share such a small space is beyond me. The bathroom was functional with limited storage and a small shower. The cabin was clean and had a balcony with 2 chairs and a small round table. Read entire member review >>
"Sweet 16" cabin with larger balcony. Cabin size OK for two (with sufficient storage space)can't see how 3-4 could fit. Bath room is decent size with good layout. Downside to larger balcony is in AM when balconies above are cleaned and uncovered portion catches water. Avoid balcony between about 9 and 11 AM. Cabin was very quiet but out of way. Be prepared to walk a lot as all the dining options are at opposite end of ship. Read entire member review >>
Cabin a bit on small size but with well laid out bathroom and large (sweet 16) balcony. Location at front of ship means a long walk to eat but is directly under span and solarium and above show lounge. Downside, every morning the outside portion of balcony got a dose of water, when higher balconies were cleaned...stay away from about 9:30 - 11;00 AM. Actually a very quiet location with just about the right amount of room and closet apace for 2. Can not see how you could put 3 or four in this cabin as with just two getting ready for the evening, space seemed to be at a premium. Read entire member review >>
We booked a veranda guarantee and ended up with a "sweet sixteen" cabin; cabin 6035. The balcony was 2x the size of an average veranda stateroom. That was the best part of the cabin. The cabin was very small and not very clean. When we first arrived I checked the bed and one of the pillows was covered with dirt (I could dust it off). The steward replaced it but, "really"; "modern luxury"? It was a "wipe down" job each day; livable but not "cruise ship standard clean". I saw dirt in the corners of the bathroom that sailed with us from day one until the end. I am guessing these stewards are very understaffed and need assistants like the old days. It would be a worthy investment for the cruise line to go back to that routine as standards slip when you cut corners. Hint if you book this cabin with 3 people: There is a pullman bed in addition to the sofa bed…you will not be able to walk onto the balcony if the sofa bed is set for bed. We used the pullman after day one so we could actually use our balcony. We received no towel animals the entire cruise (and we were traveling with a 9 year old who looked for them each night). There were chocolates on the bed each night. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was a normal size balcony cabin. Storage was adequate, and it was in good condition except for a little rust and some cracked bathroom tiles. Our stateroom attendant was Reggie, and he was as perfect as a stateroom attendant could be. Whenever we asked for anything, it was there by the time we returned to our stateroom. His assistant was quick and thorough when cleaning our stateroom. They were very attentive - whenever we saw them, they were always asking if there was anything else we needed. I would have to say it was the best service we have ever received from a stateroom attendant and assistant in all of our previous cruises. Read entire member review >>
Cabin had enough storage. My husband liked the hand held shower. The veranda was a decent size. We were fairly close to an elevator but it was quiet by our room. Our cabin did not have a connecting door. It was very clean. There was a tiny glitch with the closet door but it was very minor. You did have to be careful opening the bathroom door if your partner was by the closet. There were enough outlets for charging devices. Lighting was good. Read entire member review >>
We were concerned about the cabin's location, but there is hardly any noise coming from the hallway, even though the cabin door opens to the elevator/stairs. However, this is an adjoining cabin and the adjoining door must be paper thin, we could hear EVERYTHING from our neighbors. The storage was plentiful, even the suitcases fit under the bed. It was a bit awkward trying to get items from the closet in the tight hall right outside the bathroom door. The shower was twice as big as ones on other ships, and it had a removable showerhead! Nice size balcony with two chairs, and a small low table. Read entire member review >>
This wonderful room is the furthest aft of the port-side “sweet sixteen” rooms on the Summit. These rooms, eight on each side of deck six, have extra veranda (twice as much!) for the same 2C veranda price. The reason, which you can’t see on the deck plans, is that they extend like the lifeboats. Half of the veranda is covered from above, and half is under the stars – a great spot for a private evening meal.Our room was kept very clean, our bed was comfortable, and the air conditioning/heating worked well and was not intrusive. There was plenty of storage. Strategic mirrors make it seem larger, but it’s a small room making the most of its available square footage. The bathroom was large enough for us and the exhaust fan was effective. We loved the shower – large or tall people might find it too small.Things to consider if you choose this room – it’s a long way forward, so we rocked and rolled for the first choppy and windy 36 hours at sea. If you’re prone to seasickness, choose a midships room instead. Read entire member review >>
Very nice, plenty of room if you stored your suit cases under the bed with some of your clothes in them. We were back to back cruisers so we had to pack for 2 weeks. That's why we used the "under the bed" storage. Read entire member review >>
Perfect selection for us - right by the elevators to avoid long corridor walks to and from the cabin. Probably exposed to the maximum noise from gusts coming and going, but i expect most cabins get some of that and the passengers weer not overly noisy on this trip. This balcony cabin, two aft and the rest forward, are on an outward bulge of the ship offering maximum viewing. Like that Celebrity still stocks soap, shampoo and conditioner in the bathrooms. the rectangular shower seems roomier than the more common rounded chambers. Decent balcony size and nice chairs and table. Modern flat screen tv with menu that allows access to all the info you need and some interesting programming and movies. Read entire member review >>
This is a quiet Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah on the Vista Deck Forward. The balcony does have an obstructed view. The cabin is a nice size, with plenty of storage and a small seating area. It was very accessible to the theater and the spa area, but at the opposite end of the ship from the main dining room. In future, we would probably look for a cabin mid-deck, but we did enjoy this room. Read entire member review >>
Extended balcony without an extended price! We could easily fit 6 chairs and 3 small tables on the balcony for dinner one night. This is the same as the other deck 6 balcony staterooms from 6035 and forward. Read entire member review >>
Our sweet-sixteen cabin was great! The luxury of a huge balcony was wonderful. It would have been nice to have lounge chairs. The cabin itself was in OK shape. I don't believe the refurb spent too much time or $'s on this cabin class. Don't pick the first 6 cabins of these 16's. Read entire member review >>
We were in cabin 6048. This was an oceanview room with a balcony. This particular room is on the corner of the ship where the room next to ours juts out, widening the ship there. That meant that our room had a larger balcony than the others on our floor but it was triangular shaped instead of rectangular. There are evidently 2 of these rooms per floor. Having a bit of extra room outside was nice.
There was ample space for storage for two people, with a large two door closet and a third door that opened to a 6 drawer dresser, with a tall shelf on top. The safe was on a shelf above in this closet.
There are 2 drawers on either side of the bed and there are 2 shelves on either side of a mirrored table. There was a usable shelf above the TV and the refrigerator is below the TV. You have to ask for it to be unlocked, but then there is a drawer for storage above the refrigerator.
There are 2 outlets by the mirrored table and the ice bucket and fresh water with glasses are sitting on here as well.
There was a small couch with a glass table near the sliding glass door, for additional seating.
The room was laid out well and had plenty of room, but needs updating badly. The carpet on the floor is faded and worn with stains. The curtains have noticeable repaired areas instead of being replaced and the couch, although comfortable was in need of a good cleaning.
The bathroom was small by standards we are accustomed to, but it was sufficient. There were 2 shelves over the sink and plenty of under the sink cabinet space. The shower is of adequate size, but the shower curtain leans in on you as you are showering, taking up space and causing a constant fight with the curtain. Even magnets at the bottom of the curtain to hold it to the bottom of the shower would help.
The room was far enough away from the elevators to be quiet. The only noise was from inconsiderate people walking down the hallways and talking loudly late at night. We couldn't hear any noise coming from above or below our room.
The room was pretty forward on the ship and was about 5 rooms aft of the forward elevators. It was a very smooth cruise without a lot of harsh movement except for one evening and morning where the seas were a bit rockier. The room was much more comfortable as far as movement when you compare it to the level of movement at the back of the ship. Read entire member review >>
Light, airy (the mirrors help a lot). Pleasant decor. A bit snug compared to Carnival's cabins but comfy anyway. A bit short on cabin shelf space compared to HAL or Disney. Read entire member review >>
Balcony on 7th deck has an overhang from deck 8 so it seemed a little closed in. Pick deck 6 or 8 to avoid these overhangs.
Rooms are small but adequate. Didn't spend much time in them. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was #6024 - 2C Veranda. The room decor is a bit old. The bedspread seemed a little past it's prime (but who touches those anyway?). And the orange fabric motif on the curtain and headboard thing isn't my style. I still don't understand the headboard fabric panels with bar…oh well. The room was very clean. Our stateroom attendant, Rafael, was the best we ever had. He really went out of our way to anticipate our needs.
The real selling feature of this room is the balcony. Being twice as deep as a standard balcony is really nice. We asked for two additional chairs so we could prop our feet up and invite friends over for wine before dinner. Rafael got us two great chairs with wooden backs and pads. We used the balcony every morning for coffee and croissants before getting ready.
We didn't hear any noise from the theater below or from the cabins below. I would not hesitate to book this cabin again or recommend it to a friend. Read entire member review >>
Got into the cabin -- #6028 - one of the so-called 'sweet 16' balcony cabins (so-called because they have double-size balconies), at about 1:30. I've always chosen the same basic cabin class - BB on Princess, D2 on RCL, VC on HAL, and now 2C on X. Out of the four lines I've cruised, I found the general layout to be the best on the Summit. There was plenty of space to move around the bed, the little love seat next to the balcony was nice (better than RCL's placement in the interior, and much better than Princess' uncomfortable 'armchair'). The bathroom was small but very well and conveniently laid out. And although it didn't have a tub like HAL, it had a decent-sized shower that I found more than adequate - and I'm a 'plus-sized' person.
There were only 3 very minor things I didn't like about the cabin: 1) the closet was small (that's one area where Princess crushes the competition!), 2) The TV was small and curiously, across the cabin from the loveseat, so that I had to angle my head uncomfortably to see it, and 3) the balcony furniture consisted of 2 regular-sized chairs and a tiny table. On Princess and HAL, the same class cabin provided a larger table and a lounge chair! Read entire member review >>
Our 2C cabin (6029) was very much like other cruiseship staterooms we have bunked in but with a few nicer features. Real wood paneling, floor to ceiling mirrors, attractive drapes & light fixtures, bathroom toiletries and a very comfortable bed w/ rounded space saving corners, clever...The oversized balcony was the best feature. The AC/Heat was very responsive. The shower was a good one. The bathroom size worked. Overall we loved our cabin, especially that big balcony. Read entire member review >>
Cabin; Our cabin was #6069-2C. It was a outside, balcony and convertible to three beds. The room appeared in good shape and perhaps had been recently remodeled. The bathroom was small, but no smaller than what we had experienced in the past. It was as clean and well laid out as any we had been in. Our room steward team (Edwin and Simpson) where always in the hallway or cabin down the way if we needed anything. We did make some request of them and they obliged. I would say of all the cruises I have been on they where effective, efficient, but certainly not personable. I don't need them to wait on me hand over foot. I was happy that we needed little interaction. But in comparison with other room stewards, I knew little about them in the end. Which was fine, but also prevented us from feeling a personal connection to them or the need to recognize them with an additional tip beyond the standard deduction. I would recommend the balcony. Even if you end up spending little time out there. The time you do spend, in port or at night just before bed, is a peaceful and worthwhile expense. We opted for the sofa to be unfolded and stay as a bed for the majority of the cruise. The other option was a pull down above the two singles. We had experienced the pull down last year and I was not happy be suspended (300lbs) above two other, unsuspected sleeping cabin mates. Edwin did add the mattress from the pull down to the sofa bed at my request, which made the sofa bed a much more enjoyable lateral sleeping location for 7 nights. Read entire member review >>
