Worst Cabins ?

Recommended Posts

We've had a lot of threads on this board listing cabins with extra large balconies on Celebrity. Maybe it is time to start a thread listing cabins with smaller than regular cabins and obstruted views etc.

 

That way we can avoid the diappointment of booking one.

There was once a thread on "cabins to avoid" that I believe was lost during the last board upgrade/conversion.

AVOID Celebrity Suite 9096 on the Summit (do not know if it is the same on all of that class ships) has a major noise issue all night over the bedroom. Do not book this cabin. No one knows what is causing it, as there is nothing above that is open at night. However, the suite on either side of us did not have this issue. Perhaps it is harmonics, but it is so bad you will not be able to sleep.

8108 8102, 9100 9094 7136 7142 extra small balconies

8100 ?

9096 Noise from above

 

any additions?

We recently had Celebrity Suite 9096 on Constellation.

I would agree that it is noisy - strange noises - lots of creeking and the odd bang!!

 

It didn't bother us too much but I guess if you were a light sleeper it might.

 

Apart from that it is a great room!

I just read on another post that cabins 8043 and 8041 both had obstructed views due to the window washing platform being parked there. This was on the Infinity.

 

One of the most annoying issues could be from doors opening and closing by the crew, going to their stairway and elevator. We had this problem on the QM2.

Does anyone know which cabins would be affected by this?

Just the fact that it is on the Galaxy!!

Never been on any celebrity cruise before, but have been on Princess, RCI, Carnaval and Holland America. We found all the lines to be great except for Carnaval which was more like a frat party than a cruise.

 

Looking at Greek Isle cruises Princess has a 12 day itinerary that is over a $1000 more ($2300 for an inside Vs $1,299 for the Galaxy) when compared to the 14 day Exotic Med and Black Sea. I have read on these boards that while celebrity may not be the best cruise line, it's comparable to Princess and RCI...Would you say that it is not the case...I really don't care about a foggy window in some bar, or that some carpet may be a little worn. I would be concerned if the food was terrible, or the stateroom infested with roaches...Were we wrong selecting the Galaxy?

Without regard for any other aspect of the cruise but the cabin I think you have made a mistake. Specifically Galaxy's mattresses are very old and extremely uncomfortable and should have been replaced some time ago. You can read thru other threads where almost all of the people talk about having to request that egg crates be added etc.. If they replace them with new it could change things.

 

With respect to other comparisons other than the cabin apparently DMK started this thread and would like it to pertain to the cabins only. Check Oceania's threads and other Galaxy threads.

I keep a record of my personal observations and all posts on the CC message boards regarding good or bad cabin experiences for the Celebrity M Class ships. Here are my bad boys. Unless otherwise noted the problem was usually noise and of course others would differ with me, but here goes:

 

Anything immediately under the pool grill area

Aft cabins on the Sky Deck (unless you like being observed by patrons using the cocktail bar above you)

8108 - There's a picture of the miniscule balcony somewhere on CC

8039 - Obstructed view from window washing device

8041 - Same

8043 - Same

9125

9151

9173 and possibly other cabins nearby - Horrible noise from cafe setup in the wee hours of the morning

7163 - Absolutely no privacy on this deck, completely visable from balconies above

7161 - Same

7159 - Same

9185 - Obstructed View from window washing device

9189 - Same

9193 - Same

Any balcony cabin midships on deck 6 - Amazing view of the lifeboats.

We had a cabin over the lifeboat used as the tender on this deck. It was terrible. When they lowered it for launch in tendered ports it was loud in the early am. When they didn't use it they cleaned it (also loud) and you'd better not open your curtains unless you are fully dressed.

 

C'est tout. I'm personally backing off of Celebrity for awhile. Posts here to the boards have me worried about my once favorite cruise line. :eek:

Yes, it is a noisy cabin. Also banging, almost like a hammer in the living room........my DH thinks it is a pipe of time kind.

Has anyone considered the supernatural (ghost) in this cabin? You frequently hear about certain hotel rooms with a ghost, why not a ship cabin?

To be honest........You Bet! I ask if anyone had died in there? Just the room steward said that no one could understand where the noise was coming from, and he had been there 7 or 8 months.

 

It is a real mystery especially since the sky suite next to us, and the celebrity suite on the other side heard nothing the whole two weeks.:confused:

Yes, avoid 8102, which has a wedge-shaped balcony about 22 sf, rather than the standard CC of 42.

Thanks for your list. I will add it to mine. I am still looking for cabins that are across from "Service Doors".

I've been on two cruises now where my cabins were across from service doors, and I must be the world's heaviest sleeper because I never heard a thing! I think being next to a service door must be worse than being across from one.

Avoid 9068. It is conceirge class, not classified as partial obstruction, but the painters rig is set up out side it, so even 9070,too, and also more so.. the cabin that is directly below, too. Better yet, avoid the Summit all together.This painters seat would not be moved when we complained.

Our group of five couples just booked the Constellation for a June 2007 sailing in the Baltic. We are in cabins 6007 thru 6015. Anyone have any information about the location of these cabins. Thanks in advance for your comments.

We just got back from Alaska and it was wonderful except for the window washing contraption parked outside of our balcony. Maked "lovely" picture taking for DH. He tried to get our room changed and made a fuss, but to no avail, but they did give him a letter to send along with his letter he is writing to the company. It started our cruise out on the wrong foot. I am just wanting to warn anyone else who is thinking of that room. it is Concierge also, so not only pay extra but get an obstruction.

We'd also like to know about these cabins as we're thinking of booking them and two others in the area for a Baltic Cruise on Constellation.

Our family was in 1218 and 1222 over Christmas and both suites were just fine.

I was in 9094 on Millennium and it is a horrible cabin; noise and more noise and a small wedge balcony. The cabin almost always smelled like the sewage that lingers throughout the ship. The over hang isn't a great feature either.

We need some expert help!

We're cruising newbies going on our honeymoon on the Millennium to the Med. We're going 'econo-style' :o in #2174 which is one of those sideways rooms. fyi that GTY has become available again for that class. So....

1) What is known about 2174?

2) What is known about interior sideways rooms?

3) Should we ditch 2174 and go GTY?

4) Any tips for honeymooners on a budget?

Thanks a Million!:)

Any cabin on the mercury or summit :D

Just wondering? According to your signature of past and persent cruises you do not show any cruises on Mercury or Summit. Where did you obtain your expertise?

In my opinion the sideways cabin are a little more comfortable. In a regular inside cabin you enter into a long corridor were your bathroom and closets are located, than into the wide part of the room and then your bed. In a sideways cabin you enter into the wide part which gives you more room to walk about. I booked this kind of stateroom on my B2B Med cruise onboard Galaxy for Nov. 07. Good Luck on your honeymoon cruise. Our cruise is to celebrity our 50th Anniversary.

I also like the sideways inside cabins, they seem roomier to me.

 

A cabin I wouldn't recommend is 1135 on Mercury. It's a concierge cabin. There was a lot of noise from the Palm Springs Bar & Grill. I took earplugs with me so I slept ok, but from now on I'll only stay in cabins on a deck with cabins above & below.

Thanks Buckeye and congratulations on 50 years! Based on what you said, I do feel better about the sideways room.

 

I just remembered that when I looked at the decks on the cruise, it appears as though the movie theater is right above us. Our room is below the back of it. So maybe if there's stadium type of seating, it won't be as bad. I wonder if the soundproofing makes it tolerable?

 

Last, my only temptation with the GTY room is that I hear sometimes they'll give you an upgrade. I figured if ever there were ever a good chance for it, it would be now since we'll be on our honeymoon and our TA made a note of it in our reservation. Is it a pipedream?

 

From a novice,.....Thanks to all you experts out there.:)

It's too bad Celebrity just doesn't come out and tell us when we pay for these unobstructed balaconies that they actually have these window washer things in the view. That would be the right thing to do. We complained 2 months ago and no word of apology. These cabins that we all had issue with is not news to them!!

We are in 9153 and 9157 on the Summit heading for Alaska. We are taking our 80 year old mothers (a trip of a life time). So if anyone has info about problems with these cabins please let me know. I only have 2 weeks until sailing but I would rather complain now and try and give them a GREAT trip.
