We wanted to spend enough time on the ship to explore it fully. We did have concerns seeing some of the early re3views. We decided to stop reading them as some where so very negative!
We were in a suite 7306 aft S1.
At the outset let me give some background. We are seasoned Celebrity cruisers. We are Elite +. We have travelled in all levels of stateroom on all ships other than Flora and Reflection! We are from UK so flew out from UK to Fort Lauderdale. We went to the cruiseport early, around 10-30. After an extremely quick check-in on computer, we were shown to the lounge where drinks and snacks were served prior to embarkation. After a quick coffee we were on board, straight to our room where we found our room keys, dropped off our handheld and were ready to explore!
This is a corner S1 aft. We loved the room. It had a different layout than others in the SI category. Bed doesnt face the windows, no peep through from the bathroom. We found it spacious and practical. It has an entrance from main corridor to 2 rooms an SV and anSI with their own entrances.
We loved the room the position and view out oover aft. The only downsides were the much reported shower issues, despite curtain. Stateroom attendant provided extra towels and did his best to help us with what is clearly a design fault. Also it is a long walk to the retreat facilities and Luminae. Didnt bother us, but maybe not for those who find long walks a challenge.
