We stayed in cabin #6143 on the Infinity. It is back toward the stern of the ship among the suite cabins. The cabin is now classed as a 1A. It is about a foot wider than the other 1A's and has a much larger balcony which is a teak deck. Being among the suites it is very quite and is a real sleeper until this is posted!! If you get this cabin, I think you will be very happy.
We stayed in a FV cabin on Century which was at the back of the ship. There was no balcony but was very roomy for 2 people. I don't remember the exact cabin # but we were on Deck 8 and right by a staircase that took us up to the buffet for breakfast. That was very convenient. Did not notice any more motion or noise. There was a queen size bed w/sliding doors to separate it from the rest of the room, 2 couchs and a pull down. I think it would be quite tight for a family but quite cozy for the 2 of us.
I'm really trying my darndest to get on every ship, and try every cabin, but I needed to start when I was younger <G>
I started my first book on my last cruise, and I'm hoping to finish reading it on my next.
This idea is just for an article I'd like to write for CruiseMates. The site was created to share all sorts of cruise information. Thousands of people a day use it is a tool to find and share useful information.
What a great idea...I look forward to your article.
Just got back from Summit - cabin 9161 on Sky deck...Had a great time
and an enjoyable cruise...our cabin was OK, but Sky deck wouldn't be
my first choice next time because the balcony has a large overhang
above it from Resort Deck. We didn't have an obstructed view, but we
couldn't see the beautiful moon that was shining during most of the cruise...
just the reflection on the water.
Also, there was noise from above during the wee early morning hours...
sounded like something "rolling" above us....now we were just under
the tables in the Waterfall Cafe, so the sound must have carried from
the buffet area as the staff was preparing for breakfast...the noise wasn't
enough to wake us up, but if we were awake, we heard it...we did get
used to it. Maybe an extremely light sleeper would find it bothersome.
When we cruised in March 2004 we were quite dissatisfied with Cabin 8102 on the Summit. It was just forward of the bump out for the suites, as a result, the Balcony was very small and "Pie Shaped". It was so small in fact that there was only room for 1 chair on the balcony. This meant that we could not sit out on the balcony together. Only one person could sit and the other had to stand.
We had booked the same Cabin on the Constellation for September of 2004, but immediately upon our return home from Summit we called our TA changed our booking to a different cabin so that we would have a full size balcony.
The other negative to 8102 was that the windows of the suite looked right onto the tiny balcony. Glad we changed our cabin on Consteallation-- We have a hump on Brilliance & will report back on that one....
Wow can't believe you got so upset over a person trying to help out fellow cruisers. The more info you can only help you. I guess having inof on Iraq would not make it an ideal vaction spot right now, but if we took your advice we would have to find out for ourselves when we get there. CALM DOWN.
Galaxy cabin 5069, inside cabin has a pole in the middle of the cabin in a very awkward position. Don't get up in the middle of the night without a night light or bathroom light on. May be other on the Galaxy and not sure of Century or Mercury.
Adding further to the criticism regarding cabin 8102, we had the same disappointing experience with cabin 8108. It is located on the other side of the bump-out and so it too had that triangular-shaped balcony and front row view into the living room area of the expensive suite next door.
Cruz Crazy you have me upset now because I am booked on one of your so called disaster cabins for May to Bermuda. I originally had one booked for the mid section, but was concerned about being under the lounge (loud music) so my agent called Celebrity and they suggested one of the front aft cabins and said I would be under the card room. I sure hope they are right and you are wrong.
What a great thread.
Based on our experience on the Millennuim, I wouldn't book 9105 again as we heard a lot of noise from the pool deck above, however our friends Denise and Bill had a great cabin 6144, it is a 1A Balcony in between the suites on the Penthouse deck and has a larger balcony with 2 sun loungers and a VCR in the room too.
Be interested to hear about the hump balcony cabins on the Brilliance as we have one booked for may in the Med.
I just booked the Galaxy for July and was VERY worried about my cabin having heard of the illustrious poles. I am in abin 8151. i called Celebrity and was assured that "no poles exsist" in THEIR cabins. I SAW the pictures and I have heard from you guys that they do in fact exist. Is anyone familiar with my cabin?
If you go to the Celebrity website and go into the deck plans for the Horizon, you will see on the Galaxy Deck (which is above the Caribbean Deck) that large white space past the Starlight Restaurant is the Kitchen Galley.
Then if you go one deck down to the Caribbean Deck you will see a lot of green inside cabins that are directly under that white space (Kitchen Galley). This is where I was in the green cabins and it was extremely noisy.
So you are on the Bermuda Deck? It looks good under the card room.
If I ever go on the Horizon again (which I doubt) I would do the Atlantic Deck and be under a deck of only rooms.
The dining room food was very good on the Horizon, but I didn't care for the older ship ambiance. Just my opinion.
Cruz Crazy, I am not on the Bermuda deck. I am on the Caribbean Deck Cabin 6137 and they told me I would be under the card room! I guess I better take ear plugs. I don't know what to do now because I will have to pay extra to change cabins.
Betty. I wouldn't think that the card room would be too raucous. Probably has carpets on the floor so you won't hear sliding chairs. And cards don't involve alot of screaming or anything. I would think that playing cards is a failry quiet activity. Should be ok.
No Sal a card room would not be too raucous, but the truth is I was told it was a card room above me, but it is actually the kitchen gally with all the noise that Cruz Crazy stated. I called my travel agent today and I am so thankful that I was able to change my cabin to the Bermuda deck. Thanks to Kuki for starting this thread and for Cruz Crazy for warning me about these aft cabins on the Caribbean deck.
On the Millenium class ships, the first eight 2C cabins forward have double length verandas (6021 to 6035 port and 6016 to 6020 starboard). You can see the lengthened verandas on a detailed side shot of these ships. The reason is that there is an overhanging section of the superstructure two decks above. The same cabins on deck 7 do not have the extra length and they can look down on to the extended part of the veranda for the deck 6 cabins (no nude sunbathing unless you are the type that discards three aces in a strip poker game ;-)
Concierge Cabin 9038 on the Millenium is a great cabin. The balcony has extra room as it is on a angle. The rest of the room is the standard size for concierge level, but the larger balcony makes it very very comfortable. It had a large table for breakfast, two padded chairs and a small round table. There actually would have been room for a lounger, but we didn't bother to ask for it. A great room (and if you get Vali as your attendant - it's an added bonus!)
