Four cabin possibilities- M class


 Share

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

These cabins are above each other and have the triangular verandas:

6048 2B: Would life boats partially obstruct afterward view?

7080 2A: 

8046 C2: Being a concierge cabin is the interior square footage for this cabin as large as CCs and AQs reportedly are?

 

Oh and another option- 2C 6035 the most aft of the sweet 16s

 

All input appreciated, thanks!

We have stayed in 6030 starboard side most aft of the Sweet 16.  It is a looong walk to get to dining, bars, etc.  The balcony was large but all but with just the standard 2 chairs & small table the extra space was of little use. We wouldn’t book one again

 

The Concierge and Aqua cabins are about  20 sq ft larger and to us it was noticeable after being in a regular veranda on a M class ship.

Thanks, Jelayne. 

The one reason 6035 appeals is that is looks directly down to the sea as well as a slight view to the stern. Since the cruise we are considering is r/t Seattle to Alaska, I'm thinking we'd have a better chance to see marine life below us with 6035.

We don't mind walks. But a plus for more stern cabins (now also considering 7166 and 7177) is that it is a quick elevator ride to the open viewing areas since it appears that the open bow is now reserved for the Retreat.

Been on 7 Alaska sailings (f I remember correctly - perhaps one or two more than that), and never have I seen marine life by looking down at the sea below us (have seen whales in the distance).  That said, I did not check your cabin choices specifically but have had a cabin on Deck 6 which had our view quite blocked by lifeboats, as well as a bright light that shone off of them right onto our balcony, so making sure there is no obstruction in the one you have chosen certainly makes sense.

This is the view from the veranda of 6030, looking aft.

The view aft from 6048 would be much the same (Cruisedeckplans had a view aft from 6053).  As has been mentioned, wildlife is not going to be so close to the side of the ship unless it is floating along on a growler or bergy bit.  EM

If you want to see wildlife book an aft cabin. Sailing from Icy Straits in an aft is, I think, what you want. Land animals returned to the shore through the narrow straits and whales and other sea animals followed the ship. This has happened on both of our Alaskan cruises....probably would have happened again if our May cruise (on another line) had sailed.

Have stayed in 8046 and multiple times in 6028 (a sweet 16).

 

We find the sweet 16 balconies much more spacious and useful than the triangular ones.  We would book sweet 16s over the triangular balconies every time.  

 

However, we may not want to book 6035 because it is port (smoking) side and not far from the open deck at the theater lobby one decks below (possible smoker hangout).

Decision made and booked! 7080 it is! Reading Celebity's Cruise with Confidence policy there will be lots of options for a price reduction or cabin upgrade even after final payment which we are at for our 9/10 cruise.

Now we just have to keep fingers X'd that the Millennium will set sail as planned!
