Default Equinox Aqua Class cabin selection

I am booking for a sailing next year and am perplexed as to which cabin to select. My first inclination is to go for the center of the ship or as close to there as possible. Unfortunately, it appears to me that there is a large overhang at the cabins that meet this criteria. I think the overhang may limit the view quite a bit.

I notice that the forward cabins do not seem to have this overhang. My concern in moving forward, however is the added movement of the ship. I have always found that center cabins equal less movement sensation.

I would appreciate any input from people who have sailed this ship or the Solstice to chime in with your thoughts and suggestions.

Thank you!

Hi, I am currently booked on the Solstice for the 30th of this month. I have booked a cabin close to the front.

I can say that I have sailed on several Celebrity ships all over the globe and have yet to experience any real problem with motion. On the Millenium class ships I usually book conceierge in the back of the hsip and still I have no problem with motion.

This may come into play if you hit rough seas like I did on the Horizon, but even then it was not bad.

I would say pick a cabin you really want and don't worry about the motion of the ocean, it really won't feel it much at all.

Parrot Mom, anywhere on a Celebrity ship is a great location.

Once we had a Concierge Class cabin that was in-between two suites, and our service was amazing...not sure if it was because we were situated there, but I think our cabin attendent was one of the best we ever had.

Thanks to all that have replied! After way too much consternation, I selected a cabin three or four doors back from the hump. I discovered through some awesome photos I found, that the overhang is higher up (one floor) towards the aft. Also, in the aft 1/3 of the penthouse deck, there are cabins directly above as opposed to the pool deck, etc.

Now if June would just get here sooner, I would be happy! :o
