We had a cabin right at the stern on the Millennium, Hawaii to Vancouver, and loved it. Booked another aft cabin for our Constellation transatlantic cruise in April.

We are booked on the Century for May 3 and found out our cabin is on the Panorama deck, at the very back of the ship. We were wondering the same thing, any known problems back there?

Depends on which Celebrity ship you are taking about .The aft cabins on Mercury have a fair amount of vibration, but I never noticed it on recent Infinity or Galaxy cabins that were aft.

Just got back yesterday from the Horizon. We had back facing cabins on deck 5. The noise and vibration were terrible. Daybreak surprises(loud bangs and motors) 3 of 7 mornings. Change cabins if you can!!!!!
Otherwise an Excellent cruise.

Hold on there, Kruzin56!!

It isn't fair to tell someone to change their cabin based on your experience on one ship, when the original poster didn't specify any ship at all.

Fact is, the aft-facing cabins on Millie class ships are absolutely coveted because of their oversized balconies which are absolutely tops. When it was first launched, the Millie did have a lot of vibration back there while backing, but the ship was drydocked and this problem was largely cured.

So, ti, the answer is that if you're on the Millie, Infinity, Summit or Constallation you should absolutely NOT change your reservation. For the other ships it MAY be worth looking into.

The previous poster (AR) is correct...if you have an aft cabin on one of the M-class ships hold onto it for dear life! They don't sell out first by chance.....good news travels fast and they are grabbed quickly.............

Hi Ti,
On our most recent cruise, Radiance of the Seas, we had an aft balcony cabin and absolutely loved it. Did not notice any more noise or moving, which suprised me. The larger size balcony is a huge plus, just loved it.

We had an aft cabin on the Summit. We just loved it. Booked another cruise on yhe same ship with the same room. Different route. If my wife had her way thats the only place to cruise. We both think they are GREAT. NO noise and beautiful surroundings. You have the whole world to yourself. Try it you will fall in love with it.

Zenith aft cabins have a lot of vibration, motion, and noise in aft cabins

We will be on the Century on April 12th in one of the rear cabins on the Panorama deck. Before I reserved them I did some research and have been told that the only problem is the vibration when entering or leaving the dock. The room size and location outweigh the few mintues of noise.

At the risk of being negative, that is exactly what was told to me. The nonstop vibration and noise and daybreak clanking, banging etc took it`s toll on sleep. This is an issue that Celebrity should address on their smaller ships.

My best wishes for your good fortune.

My husband and I have had one of the cabins directly on the back of Millie. Without
a doubt the best accomodations ever. The balcony was so large it had 4 lounge
chairs a table and two additional chairs for eating. We will be on Infinity to Hawaii'
on May 11th of this year and on Millie October 9th for 9 nights and you guessed it
we booked the same cabin for the second and third time. Any of the Millenium Class
ships have NO problems with noise or vibration. Never compare the older ships
with the newer products. Like the others have said those are coveted cabins and
book well ahead. We booked the Hawaii Cruise 18 months ago just to make sure
that we had that cabin on the back. As we pass through those islands we won't miss
any of the sights as we will see from side to side.

40 Days to cruise #23, just as excited as the first or second time!!!!
