Sail Date: Jul 2011
Cabin: AquaClass 1

What a voyage! My 6th cruise in the last 30 months and the best and not for the obvious reason that it is a brand new ship.

Aqua class was a treat and Blu is the place you will/should be spending most of your dining time. So many places on this ship to call your own and to hide out, if you had 2 weeks you could find a new nook every day to call your own. Crew was really great as you would expect on the maiden voyage.

Rooms are narrower and longer than in the Millennium I sailed on in December. Entry way is different, doors open out instead of in. Closet has been moved to the side of the bathroom instead of across from it. Greatly reduces storage space though there are some over the bed compartments to partially make up for it. Great multi-head shower and good bathroom storage. Full time night light really nice, no more blinding yourself on those late night trips to the head. Large flat screen TV with lots of entertainment choices. Bed alternate room o room with half being close to the balcony and half having the couch closest. The walls are not perfectly straight and bend around the beds for room to get by.

Cabin Review

AquaClass 1

Cabin A1

Cabins on Celebrity ships very uniform. The 15 or so extra square feet in both the room and the balcony, especially the balcony over the Millenium class ships, make a big difference. Shower was too cramped for my liking and kept hitting my are on the shower door using the toilet. Level 11 is preferred over 12 in my view as you don't have the big overhang right above you. I was on port side near the rear. Was overall very quite, low foot traffic, no engine noise, no odd smells or sounds.
