Default Summit FV aft locations?

Hi there,
Newbie question about Summit -- we've settled on the FV stateroom but all of them are all the way aft. Some are corners -- would those be a lot better? Can you look down and see water, or just more ship? We're considering 8166, it's a starboard corner. We'll be on the Southbound Seward-Vancouver itinerary so I'm not sure if that side of the ship is as desirable. But the balconies look awesomely large!

Advice for the confused? Thanks.

Michelle

Here's a link to same great cabin photos. 8166 is one of them. We have 8166 for a New England cruise on the Connie in October.

From that point on the ship the stern is quite flat and you would be looking straight down on the water. Might be a very interesting cabin.

For Southbound port is the side most desired. But aft has plenty of scenic views. It is not the place to be if you are interested in marine wildlife- you need to track from ahead. On glacier sailing day be sure to head out to the front deck part of the trip- nothing beats the full front views.

Be aware that the lower portion of the FV balconies is metal, so you can't view as much sitting down or from a lounger as you can from other balconies.

By the way, is Celebrity selling these FV (family view) balconies to everyone now, or do you have to have a certain number in the cabin and then, if you do, can it be three or four adults as opposed to two adults and two kids?

I have seen lots of pictures on the web of people out on the FV balconies with no children in sight. What is the situation regarding how many people can be in the cabin? Is it OK for just a couple?

We are a couple and had a corner aft last September for Hawaii on the Infinity and have another one booked for April 2005 for the Panama Canal.....I hope no changes are made, as it is a wonderful place to be alone with the one you love!

We had cabin 8166 for a Panama Canal cruise in April on the Millenium (identical ship), and chose it for the very reasons that have been mentioned. As far as we were concerned, it was the absolute best for the price.

On the sides, it is not straight down to the water. The luxury (sp) suites extend out about 10 feet further on both the side and the rear. However, in no way this this affect our view. The balcony had 4 lounger chairs, 2 upright chair, a dining table, and a smaller table, and there was loads of space left. Another big plus was, because of the cabin layout, we had 2 extra closets.

If offered this cabin again, I would jump at the chance. You're not going to regret it

I was booked into Cabin 8181 and was eagerly looking forward to our cruise on the GTS Summit sailing January 28, 2005 in the Caribbean. We had scouted the identical room during our recent sailing on the sisterships GTS Millennium & Constellation and discovered that its size would easily accommodate two adults in the bedroom area. Additionally, the lounge area between the approximately 15' x 30' balcony and sleeping areas includes two sofa-beds, one for an adult or two children, and another for one adult or child. There is lots of closet space and a sliding door separates the sleeping and lounge areas. However, if you go to my message under "Summit Sailing - NOT", you will discover that not all sailings come true. Best wishes.
