The new stateroom design is amazing! Electrical outlets (AC and USB) are everywhere you need them. It had an open feel and plenty of storage space. There were drawers we didn’t even use. The pullman bed worked well for our son. Visually it is appealing. Carpet was soft. Towels were fluffy. Everything worked as designed. I honestly have no suggestions for improvement. Celebrity has perfected a small room design for seasoned cruise travelers like us.
The balcony was the only place with minor issues. It is still the same 80 square feet as before the revolution. There was a slight cigarette smoke smell coming from somewhere. I never identified the exact source. During previous cruises aboard the Infinity, we were able to get the stateroom attendant to bring down some longer deck chairs, but this time we were told he was not allowed to do so. My impression is that the rule is more of a “class” thing where they want to reserve such perks only for those with higher status. That’s a shame because this economically-priced balcony has ample room for the long chairs. You can lay the existing chairs all the way back and extend one of them using the table to get a similar effect.
Some people criticize these staterooms for being too far forward--making for long walks to all activities. Honestly, I found the opposite to be true. Many of the activities are at the front of the ship--the Sky Lounge, spa, kids’ clubs, theater, Cafe al Bacio are all close by. Yes, you have a hike to the dining room or buffet, but they generally aren’t places we go to several times per day. There isn’t really any penalty for booking a room this far forward. Read Less
