Special thanks to Mysticks1 on the Celebrity Cruises forum for this idea. I would like to begin to assemble one for CCL.

To the moderators, I would appreciate if we could make this a "sticky" at the top of the page for all to see.

I have seen this on other forums also and it seems to be useful.

Please, refrain from posting cabin questions here so this can purely be an informative thread, especially for those that are first time cruisers or seasoned cruisers looking for a great cabin.

The template is as follows:

Quiet Stateroom? – Yes, very quiet

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No

Loved the location and being on Lido deck. Also loved having a big window at an inside cabin price. Somewhat obstructed but great view. Wind only a problem if you go outside to the "secret" deck while the ship is moving. The cabin is all the way fwd so motion may be an issue for some but we loved it. Definitely recommend the 4J cabins on Magic.

Any specific problems with this cabin? - the shower drain was very slow (a few times the bathroom floor flooded)

Any other comments? - Excellent cabin IMO. The elevator cove was in front of the cabin so no long walks to them. The aft lido buffet was just a few steps (and a few decks) above us. Port days required a walk to the front of the ship but it only bugged me coming back (happy to go, tired when I got back)

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Room itself was quiet except at night when what I can only assume was horse-riding practice on the floor above in the Lido buffet. This wasn't constant but happened often enough for me to notice and I am usually very heavy sleeper.

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - no

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – Beautiful view out and down. High enough up to see a good long way, no obstructions.

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - Normal - 2 chairs and a little table.

Was wind a problem? - I never noticed it and I was out there a lot.

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? -

Any specific problems with this cabin? -

Any other comments? - Next time, putting a cushion between me and the cavalry but the room was comfortable and the steward and the cruise were still all wonderful.

Quiet Stateroom? Absolutely NOT!! Directly over IMAX theater. Don't book any of the inside Lido rooms aft of the elevators. Terrible booming bass/vibrations every night until 1-2AM.

Cabin was not a connecting stateroom

Positive aspect of cabin was good A/C and close proximity to pool, bar, and food.

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? -

Any specific problems with this cabin? - We did have people on our "balcony" one morning since the lanai is right off the balcony. The gate latch to the balcony would also jiggle open in rough seas, so make sure to take something with you to tie it shut as it will slam pretty loud. Or just use a bathrobe belt like we did to tie it shut.

We sailed Valor before the 2.0 upgrades, so this seating is located right at Guy's Burger Joint. We could occasionally hear chairs being moved above us but this didn't seem to be a problem at night. We could hear it during the day, but it didn't really bother us.

Starboard or Port Side - Starboard

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Not exactly. It wasn't really noisy, but right across the hallway was an area where we'd hear a lot of dish noise, especially in the mornings. It was also above the Promenade but over the area right across from Taste Bar and seating along the windows. Occasionally we could hear base coming from the Dance Club at night, but it wasn't anything that kept us from sleeping.

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – Normal balcony with normal views

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - Normal

Was wind a problem? - No

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? - It in the aft section but not at the very back. We never noticed any soot.

Quiet Stateroom? Our stateroom was very quiet. We heard nothing from our neighbors or from above. Occasionally we heard and felt some vibrations, but our friends on other decks commented that they heard and felt the same thing.

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – N/A

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - N/A

Was wind a problem? - N/A

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? - N/A

Any specific problems with this cabin? - None!

Any other comments? - The obstructed view consisted of a platform extending about 20-30 feet from the stern. This only prevented us from looking directly down into the sea. Our beautiful wake view was still completely visible beyond that. We deliberately chose a cabin in the Family Harbor area even though we were traveling without children. It was very roomy and comfortable, had double closets and a large sofa. We loved having the perk of the Family Harbor Lounge available to us for grabbing a very nice breakfast of scrambled eggs, sausages, various cereals, waffles, fruit, pastries, etc., or just cup of coffee in the morning, sandwiches and cookies midday, or a soft swirl and cappuccino in the evening. This cabin was a great choice for us.

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – the room was very quiet. When looking on the map, there is a blank area to one side. I found out one day what this is the hard way. The black area are cabins for entertainers. We had several comedians on that cruise and that is where they stayed. One afternoon I was not feeling well and wanted a nap. Well no go because the 2 comedians were literally on their beds with doors open talking to each other. One had a very deep voice and when he laughed the room almost shoot. besides this very quiet.

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - no

Any specific problems with this cabin? - as someone else mentioned, there is only one outlet by the desk. I like to charge my phone overnight and use it as my alarm clock so I had to charge as much during the time I was in the room. I never had a full battery lol. Also I found that once the twin beds turned into a king, you still had to sleep on the twin. I thought there would be something put in the middle to bridge the gap but no. I was solo and was excited for a nice big bed. No luck there

Any other comments? - I like being close to the front. The only time I go aft is dinner and pool or comedy shows. Plus its good to get some movement in during your cruise lol
