Millenium Aft Cabin 7206 - Absolutely lovely CC cabin. Has a huge 20' veranda. It's well worth the price.

Question Please: We are taking another couple on the Millenium next Fall and as much as we would like to splurge on an Aft CC/or balcony, we need to economize and do OV. I have reserved 2 cabins on the Plaza Deck 3.....#3036 and 3027. I was trying to avoid being under the Casino and was hoping Michael's Club and the Photo Gallery would be a better choice. Has anyone ever stayed in this area of the ship and would like to share their experience? Or a better suggestion of OV? I have stayed away from the OV Forward cabins thinking that the motion might be too rocky. Any comments?

Please accept my thanks for taking the time to reply..... and wishing you all only wonderful cruises! Susan

Again.. please be specific, with ship, cabin #, and reason to avoid.

Thanks in advance with the help for this article. Hope I can get enough input to make it work.[/b]
KUKI,
Try dthis link and scroll down to Infinity cabin 7202. Of course it is a wonderful cabin.

HI,
On the Millennium class ships on decks 7,8,9 there is one inside cabin across from a stern cabin with a veranda. I think this would be ideal for two couples or a couple with teen agers. You can actually leave the doors open and there is very little traffic on the stern. Advantage is both cabins get to use the balcony, yet each has its privacy and own bathroom.
Of course booking has to be done at least one year in advance, since there are only three of these inside cabins on the ship.

Toby,
If the cruise line is notified in advance they always do a little something in the dining room like a cake and some singing. No upgrade that I have ever heard of.

I suggest that you do what we've done and learn firsthand by cruising. It would be a writeoff.

Mike,
You are correct here. I accidently found out on a Norway cruise about stern cabins when that was the only cabin available to get. I since have liked them. They are always far from the elevators and in 15 foot seas you get a ride up and down. Here I go again giving away good information to keep me from getting my cabin.

Default Noisy Cabins

Something to be included in things to bring on a cruise are wax earplugs. I find that they work the best in blocking out noise. They are also good on the airplane for sleeping. You have to be able to tolerate them, of course so one should practice before the trip.

Don't have the ship layout in front of me. All Millennium class ships have the same room numbers and layouts. I'm guessing this cabin is either on starboard or port side.
Deck 7 is just above the deck where all the expensive cabins are so it should be good. Sea roughness should not be a problem unless you have to cross the North Sea from England. You may be sailing out of Amsterdam or Copenhagen.

If the link works some pictures of a Baltic Cruise. Not sure the pictures are coming out, but the report did.

Yes any of those Aft Cabins are great - we had 9201.
The middle ones are excellent and you can open your balcony doors to listen to the music at night while getting ready for dinner.

Cabin 7129 a veranda cabin is about mid ships and on the port side six rooms forward of the tower elevators (glass elevators).

Default BEST VERANDA CABINS

Deck 7 (Vista deck) has 2 cabins that have an angled balcony that is the size of a suite if not bigger. They are nearly 3x the size of a standard veranda cabin. They are 7049 and 7080- IN addition, they are very much mor private, with nobody to your left and it feel slike you are jetting out over the ocean. very cool...

Similar cabins on deck 6 are 6053, 6048. deck 8: 8045, 8046. i would not recommend the ones on deck 9 due to overhang. best one is deck 7 by a long shot!!!

Default Sharing Cabin Information?

Hello,

I think that this is a great thread.

I am amused with those who think that posting special cabin features on a discussion board like this will ruin their chances of keep their "secret". That is what this sort of site is all about.

This time we just booked today, and were very fortunate, I think!

I had a file with the recommended cabins for Summit from four or five different web discussion boards - including this one - and went through the Celebrity "Stateroom Pricing" interface....typing in the numbers for the ship I was booking.

This is a great feature if you use information you gather on cabins. You can look for each cabin rather than the pre-made selection their database offers up of available rooms. Some other cruise lines have similar search capabilities.



Ding, ding, ding! We had a winner. There was only one aft facing room on the entire ship still open, and it was the very last one I checked.

We managed to get an aft cabin facing CC cabin this time that is mentioned as being especially desirable due to the larger balcony and "wake" views.

Since we are travelling with our children, we were also able to get an Inside Category 9 across the hall. Now there is only one of these Cat 9's in the corridor back by the aft facing CC cabins on each level for Vista, Sky and Panoram decks. I was quite surprised to land that cabin this late on the floor I found the CC aft facing available on. Jeeez.

The plan is that we will all use the balcony since it's larger, in effect making sort of "mini-suite" of our own. We'll let you know how it goes, and will post images and video clips when we return.

If there is interest, I will offer to donate web server and database space for a "wiki" interface so folks can post this sort of information for other ships and lines.

Such a resource would be useful for future travellers.

Regards,

Johncn

My wife and I are first time cruisers and will be on the Galaxy next month. Our stateroom is #9125, starboard side by the aft elevators. Can anyone tell me what that room might be like? What about the noise on that level?

Thanks

Andy

sky suites on Millenium class ships are basically the same except the two that are next to the Penthouse suites. Those are much larger and decorated in the same way as the penthouse suites. We had one on Infinity and it was great. There is a walk-through door to the balcony but that did not detract whatsoever, the rest of the cabin made up for it.

The CC (Concierge Class) AFT cabins on Celebrity's Summit are shown online as having the exact same size balcony as all the other CC cabins, but - let me assure you - that the AFT cabins' balconies for CC are HUGE!
I - at the moment - do not have the exact sq. footage - but they appear to be as large as the cabin itself in length and width as well. We had friends booked in 8 of those cabins and they make it well worth the signing up for them. There are a minimum of two lawn-type deck chairs, 2 tables and some regular chairs and those are just in the area under the roofing, which is half of the balcony. No wy you can miss with those cabins!

Default Secrets Cabin on Celebrity 'Mercury'

Cabins 8253 & 8257 on Panorama Deck are actually 210 sq feet, the same size as the family ocean views cabins. Look at deck plans and you will see that they appear larger and are indeed so.

We're booked in Sky Suite 1200 on Century next month. The angled verandah with aft view looks good, but wonder about noise since it is the most forward cabin toward the upper pool deck and over the bar. Anyone have information on this cabin? Thanks!

Don

We had the same pole problem in room 4202 on Century. Not only was it awkward but from my side of the bed was directly in front of the TV! This room also had some other interesting features never seen on another ship. For some unknown reason there were maybe 6 strange 'boxes' mounted on the wall in various spots, like one right above each of our pillows, one in the center of the mirror between us, and a few more in strange 'watch your head' spots in other places in the cabin. Each box was maybe 6 inches square, had a keyed lock on it and stuck out about four inches from the wall. They had fashioned upholstery pads around the edges but they were still in the way. Does anyone have any idea what they are for? There was a lot of noise behind us, particularly when they were gathering luggage on the eve before disembarkation, so not good in that regard either. I would love to go on Century but will avoid that inside hallway completely.

Just realized how old this OP was but I'm glad it has risen again. Still would like an answer to the boxes question.

Do not book 8108 on the Summit.
Concierge class. Balcony is too small for two people. Obstructed view. And, smells of sewage.

Default Solstice

I just booked on the Solstice, Penthouse deck.
I selected the new class of service called Auqa Class service.
They are offering use of the spa features, other perks such as a one time persentation of flowers, shoe shinning, bottled water, express baggage delivery, assigned seating at Blu restaraunt.
Personally I would perfer entry into all the specialty restaraunts inclusive or offer a special menu, with prime cuts of beef & pork and primeum crustations and fish.
It's all about profit for Royal Caribbean International stock holders.
Point being, some perks are not really perks to the cruiser, there really a offer by the cruise line that justifies a increased pricing for a cabin of the same sq. footage on a lower deck.
Can you imagine if Celebrity would provide you a $25 ship board credit if your express luggage delivery was over 1-hour after boarding the ship.
Offers with out recourse are just a suggestion.
Celebrity could track delivery of the bagage just like a Fed-X package.

Take for example, shoe shining. most cruisers shine there shoes before packing, at most. Celebrity may shine your shoes just once if at all.
Lets face it, two loads of laundry would better seve the cruiser, if you work out every day, a couple will require cleaning of 14 soiled underware, 14 pairs of socks, work out clothes, dress shirts, shorts and sun dresses etc. Do the math.

Princess has selfserve laundry facilities with irons on board there newer ships and they offer there elite guest free dry cleaning and laundry.
Being I am Elite with three cruise lines, I know what is beneficial and what is hype.

What I observed on the Celebrity Web site, on the Solstice, Penthouse deck State rooms 1547 and 1551 are wider then the other staterooms, I booked stateroom 1547 after viewing the diagram. I would assum they modified a 300 sq. ft. stateroom being the (standard suite) to fit the angle required at disignated location. my estimate would be that staterooms 1547 & 1551 are approx. 224 sq. ft. each.
I did e-mail WEYER WERFT ship yard in Germany, never received a return responce, they are trying to meet the August 10th 2008 deadline for start of sea trials. They are using the isopod system once again. there former class of ships built at Meyer Werft ship yards for Celebrity had a few vibration problems, requiring dry docking. It would be my guess that the current contract would contain requirements to midigate future posibility of dry docking concerning vibration.
I will update everybody after my 11/30/2008 cruise.
