larger rooms on the back of the ship?
I am cruiseing the Summit in May for an Alaskin cruise and I have the celebrity brochure infront of me and it looks like the rooms on the very end of the ship have larger balaconys. My questions are is it true that the balconys are bigger, how much bigger, and are the rooms bigger also. is there any noise problems with being on the back of the ship also.
The balconies are a LOT bigger, ours was a Cat 1A off the aft of the Infinity and it was several times larger than the 1A's elsewhere on the ship. As far as I saw, the cabin itself is not much, if any, bigger. We had no problem with noise. Grab a cabin off the rear of the ship if you get a chance. We're doing the Summit next April and booked VERY early just to get an aft cabin.
I just came back from the Millennium 9/4 sailing. I got suite 6100 but was very interested in the cat 3 cabin and could not get it. From the deck off the oasis cafe you get a good look into the balconies of these cabins despite a tarp to protect them. The ones on the side of the ship get a large balcony but the railing is solid steel so I'm guessing a view from a sitting position is limited. If you are just interested in a big balcony I would suggest the four 1C cabins next to the royal suites.
I had cabin #8176 on the Millennium. Though I was not impressed with Celebrity as a cruiseline - our balcony was awesome. It was 10' x 20' with half being covered by above balcony. If you can get a CAT 3 - go for it - those are even larger.
I was in 7203 on the Millie (aft Cat1C). Our balcony was 240 sq. feet and 2/3rds was covered and 1/3 open to the sun. The cabins themselves are the same size as the other 1C's. If you have a chance for an aft cabin, go for it. You will not be disappointed. There was no extra noise or movement that we felt back there. I just love standing at the rail watching the wake.
