Infinity AQ1 Cabins (aft 5)

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have recent experience with the aft 5 AQ1 cabins on Infinity (1133, 1141, 1140, 1138, 1130)?

We have reserved 1140, but are concerned with noise and privacy on the balcony. My understanding is this is a large balcony that overlooks the Oceanview (where smoking is no longer allowed) and is below the terrace where they show movies at night.

Q1: Do you hear any of that noise when you close the balcony door and stay inside?

Q2: On the balcony is it loud during breakfast / lunch / drinks / evening music? Or somewhat of a background and you can still have easy conversations?

Q3: What are the privacy issues? Can people see you from above and below? Is it the entire balcony?

Thanks in advance for any helpful information!

There are NO privacy issues.  But it was hard to tell which was more objectionable -- the very bad singer down below in Oceanview, or the very loud, heavy base sound track from the movies being shown up above.

On the Infinity we have been in 1138 five times, but not since the installation of the movie screen.  But we spent 28 nights on the Millennium in 1141 and 14 nights on the Summit in 1140 since the installation of the movie screen on those two ships.  We heard nothing from the movie screen when on the Summit, and the only time we could hear anything from the movie screen while on the Millennium was when the movie "Coco" was being played (we could hear part of the soundtrack, but it wasn't an issue for us).  The aft A1s we have been in are partially covered, and we had no issues with privacy from above.  We never have had noise issues during breakfast or lunch.  The music played during the evening is generally of the "soft" "easy-listening" variety, so it also has never been an issue for us.  Also, we have heard nothing while inside the stateroom.  We love the convenient location of these staterooms and jump at booking them.

No help with the movies noise, BUT 1138 on Constellation (sister ship)

is my all time favorite cabin. You won’t find many Aqua cabins with aft views, and

on an M class ship the elevator is closer. You also have a stairway down to buffet or bar just outside your door. Grab that cabin!

We were in 1140 in Oct 2018

 

the cabin is great.   There were two loungers and two reclining chairs with footstools on the balcony.  When and if it rained we were protected because 1/2 the 14 ft deep balcony is covered.

 

There is a staircase in the hallway next to the cabin that goes down to the bar and buffet and up to the roof top terrace.   Very easy to get a drink or a few snacks to enjoy on the balcony away from the crowds.

 

We spent a lot of time on the balcony.  We didn’t notice much noise from the bar or terrace.  It was only a 4 day cruise and I think everyone had a drink pack and got their money worth of drinking and partying.   It was a little younger set  than a normal X cruise and there were a lot of groups that I guess decided to take a cheap cruise that had a open bar, food, and entertainment and no tomorrow.  

 

Happy cruising 🌊🚢🇺🇸🌅

We are in cabin 1140 on the infinity right now! Love it! Some noise, but it’s not bad. Mostly occasional clinking dishes, and in the afternoon there is a musician in the seating area below. If you have your door closed you will barely hear it. Of all the aft aqua cabins, 1140 is the most private. It has a white partition on either side. The others only have them on one side. We have already booked this cabin again. Great balcony, there is a huge dance party going on one level below by the pool, and we can’t even hear it!

@philamyc Thanks for the update! Is the noise (dishes) just during meal times, or is it also during sleep time? Is there any additional furniture on this huge balcony?

The noise is off and on because people get food from the Ocean View Cafe and sit there and eat. It’s not obnoxious and never late. If you shut the balcony door you won’t hear anything no matter how loud it is. I am going to try and attach some pics. 

 

The awning is is over the seating area. Still a great view of the water.there are two chairs, two loungers and a table.
