Recommended Posts

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

 

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

 

Twice a month - I will try to post a PDF for all the ships and cabin information compiled here.

 

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:

Ship- Dawn

Deck - 9

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? No

Any specific problems with this cabin? None

Ship - Gem

Deck - 11

Stateroom # - 11002

Stateroom Category – Mini-Suite

Starboard or Port Side - Starboard

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Very quiet. Directly under one of the spa treatment rooms. Cruise Director's cabin is next door; they're never there! Only downside was the door for crew access to the bridge was right outside the cabin door.

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No

 

 

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – Forward view was partially obstructed by the starboard wing of the bridge.

 

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - Balcony appeared to be larger than Std. Balcony on Jewell Class.

 

Was wind a problem? - Only if the sliding door and cabin door were open at the same time.

 

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

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - One of the built-in drawers wouldn't stay closed; I just used a piece of RED duct tape to keep it secure. No big deal. I'm sure our steward brought it to the attention of maintenance to get it fixed eventually.

 

Any other comments? - Cabin is located at the far end of the passageway, although there is another passageway directly in front of the door so that you go from starboard to port, then forward to the bridge viewing room. If you're headed all the way aft, it is a trek, but we would most certainly book this cabin again on any of the Jewel Class ships.

Deck - 11

Stateroom # - 11024

Stateroom Category – SC

Starboard or Port Side - Starboard

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – we thought so

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - the balcony could connect to the mini suite next door

 

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – There is a deck above that jets out. Its not really noticeable when you are just standing out on your balcony, but if you want to take photos it can get in the way. On the plus side it protected us from the rain and that was nice.

 

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - Fairly good size.

 

Was wind a problem? - we never noticed any issues with wind.

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - No we loved it. would choose it again.

Stateroom #- 7007

Side- Starboard

Quiet Room- very quiet

Balcony view- This is an unobstructed oceanview

 

Comments: There were no kids on the cruise (Norweigh and Iceland) so the hallway was quiet. Kid zone is down the hall so an other voyage could be very different.

Stateroom # - 10630

Stateroom Category – BB

Starboard or Port Side - Port

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Very quiet

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No

 

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – Great view, no obstructions!

 

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - Normal

 

Was wind a problem? - No

 

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

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - None

 

Any other comments? - There are 3 specific things I look for when booking a cabin and this one satisifed all of those:

 

(1) Quiet (I am a very light sleeper), so I only want a balcony cabin on a floor that is in between other floors with cabins and don't want to be above or underneath any public areas. Deck 10 was perfect as Decks 9 and 11 also had cabins directly under us and above us.

 

(2) No interior cabins directly across the hall. That also cuts down on noise as there are no doors slamming across the hall. There is a linen closet across the hall from this cabin but that of course was only used by the stewards in the morning and early evening.

 

(3) No connecting staterooms.

 

If any of these are priorities for you as well, I would recommend a cabin location such as this one.

Ship - STAR

Deck - 12

Stateroom # - 12016

Stateroom Category – SJ (Suite)

Starboard or Port Side - Starboard

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Yes very quiet. No rooms directly across the hall so no banging of doors across the way. It was forward so the only foot traffic was the other 8-10 rooms down that hall way.

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No

 

 

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – No balcony but incredible view. Floor to ceiling windows across the entire suite and high ceilings. Nothing obstructing the view except the sea :).

 

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - Did not have one but it wasn't missed because of the enormous windows that made up the entire wall of the suite.

 

Was wind a problem? - No

 

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? - No

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - No

 

Any other comments? - Loved this cabin! It is the most reasonably priced of the suites and perfect for a splurge for two people but can easily fit 3 or 4 comfortably. It states you can sleep 6 but that might be a squeeze and there would not be any privacy for the group. We loved this cabin so much we booked it for our 14 night Panama Canal cruise too!
