Summit family veranda new pictures?

Recommended Posts

We just found out that we will be staying in a family veranda at the back of the ship. I've not been able to find many new pictures of these rooms.  

If anyone has stayed in one?

I noticed that there seems to be a lack of a mirror over the desk/vanity in these photos.  Is there one someplace other than the bathroom?

we had the FV 2 decks down 6199 (?) in April. a great lite mirror on the fwd wall by the door. Our daughter LOVED it for applying makeup. it was round.

Yes. For a FAMILY cabin what were they thinking?  The Sky Suite type table and RS chairs was a great addition.

Must you always be so negative?  Don't pop somebody else's balloon.

Thank you!

 

Great lighting combined with a mirror is tops on my list with these old eyes.  However, I prefer to sit, and have my make-up close by when applying.

Sorry to disappoint, but this has nothing to do with Kelly Hoppen. FV cabins are not suites, and Kelly's sole responsibility was the suites as far as cabin redesigns go. All other cabins had their redesign managed by Cristian Rubio Pinedo, Principal HBA Design (see the lower third of this page, make sure scroll past the "Suite Amenities" section).

 

So blame either Cristian, or LLP and gang, for anything you're dissatisfied with for the non-suite cabins. And remember that they are listening to passenger feedback and making changes to satisfy the complaints. Multiple posts here on the X board indicating that for Edge and Millie, and I'm pretty sure I saw the same for Summit. So maybe by the time the OP sails, they'll have something closer to, if not an actual, full size dining table back in place.

Clearly they weren't thinking.  They have removed the dining table from all the cabin balconies that had them, not just this one.  A shame as this was a wonderful amenity, particularly in this cabin.  Spent many an hour at that former table.

I'm not being negative.  I'm just stating a fact.  This balcony (and many others) used to have a very nice dining table.  It doesn't any more.  The negative would be that Celebrity was stupid enough to do this.

OP you have a very nice stateroom. Congrats. Ignore the noise from those that have been moaning and groaning about X for the last five plus years but still hang around and cruise X.😉 Enjoy the extra space.

Indeed. The FVs are great cabins and the corner FVS like the one pictured have the best balcony on the ship other than the Penthouse (not sure if the OP has one of those or a middle cabin). I've had a corner FV a few times and when they added the table and chairs I thought it was a great addition and a good idea. Now they've done away with it I scratch my head and wonder why.  I'm expressing a view.

The dining table looks the same size as we had last month on the non-revolutionised Constellation. If there used to be a larger table on the FV balconies, I think the decision was made to down-size them by Celebrity before Kelly got involved.

I've always wanted one of these balconies so be thrilled with it.  Kelly Hoppen will be blamed for bad weather and cold soup next.

This was the table and chairs that I had on Constellation, so yes. They did change them out.  The table in your photo is the one they have for two people on regular verandas and certainly not big enough for four.

Lkneller - might you have any photos of the cabin with the beds set up in the second room? Does the couchette / mini loveseat turn into a single bed, and the full couch a double / queen?

Sailing in an FV on Summit later this month with my family, and we can't wait!

Our Infinity FV had two tables on the balcony. The small one and a larger dining table although not as large as the one in Phil's table.

Perhaps these larger tables were never part of the original floorplan for these cabins but added by request along the way and just left there for others to enjoy. They look as though they were borrowed from other areas of the ship. When these ships were revolutionized everything was likely removed and went back to plan without them. Passengers going forward should try to request them to restart the cycle. Just my thought.

All I can say is that we have been in Infinity FV 8166 in 2002 (her first year of service) and some 15 years later in 2017.  Both times the balcony was outfitted with a small and large table.
