Thanks!

 

The elevator area is closed off from the cabin area, so there is no noise from them. Opposite cabin 7223 is a sliding door that opens into what we called our living room(grin), it was an interactive ecological area with a globe etc. It also had some comfortable seating which was nice for meeting up with our group and we saw some people reading there. Just to the right of this area are the elevators.

 

We didn't see the stewards utility cabin nearby.

 

If you stand at the rail on the balcony and look down, you will see the lifeboats, but they did not interfere with our view. Sitting on the balcony you do not see them.

Between the Solstice and Century -- Which ship did you prefer?

 

Deck -

Cabin # - 1112

Class – Celebrity Suite

Starboard or Port Side - Starboard

Bed near?(balcony or bath) – N/A

 

Quiet Cabin (With comments on problems. Note if connecting. ) – Very Quiet

 

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – No obstructions whatsoever (which is what you would expect) but my balcony was not on the "X" which means glass was clear.

 

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - Normal for class (spacious)

 

Was wind a problem? No

 

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

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? Creaky a bit when the ship was being tossed about.

 

Any other comments? A lovely suite --highly recommended. Convenient location (close to elevators -right across hall to library), felt very private, was quiet. Spacious -- nice "L" shaped sofa in living area - plenty of room to stretch out. Comfortable deck furniture.

I just noticed your signiture on another thread, and actually asked you a question about cabins on Solstice, so this is wonderful!! My husband and I are planning on booking Solstice for Sept. 2010 for our 20th anniversary!

As soon as 2010 bookings open up, I want to book, and I have no clue what cabin to book, so I will be checking here frequently for info.

Thanks again,:)

This summer, we are planning to have our first cruise (solstice)

 

I want to know what exactly the upper berth (bed) look like?

 

Is it secure for a child to sleep in this upper berth bed? Can they fall down?

 

Is it better to take a room with the double sofa bed or a room with a upper berth and a single sofa bed (i think)

 

We are a family of four with kids age 7 and 10

 

Thank you

Bluechips--Look for this info on the main Celebrity forum, I think there is place to ask this question about cabins. You'll get a quicker response. Have a great cruise, we love Celebrity.

Deck - 10, Sky Deck

Cabin # - 1066

Class – Concierge Class 1

Starboard or Port Side - Starboard

Bed near?(balcony or bath) – Bath

 

Quiet Cabin (With comments on problems. Note if connecting. ) – Not connecting. Usually quiet, though we could hear the phone ring and occasional conversation from neighboring 1068 (we were traveling with the occupants of 1068, 3131, and 3129). NOTE: 1066 is across the hall from an extremely frequently used Crew Access door to an interior stairwell. Early mornings you constantly heard it slam shut as room service and other personnel went about. Enough to wake you if you're a light sleeper.

 

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – No obstructions. (See Specific Problems Section.)

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

Was wind a problem? Never.

 

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

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? On Sky Deck, and ONLY Sky Deck, only every other balcony could be fully 'opened' to share deck space. There are large supporting beams running up from every other Sky Deck balcony to Deck 12, 2 floors above. As a result, the balcony partitions are set into the 'V' portions of these beams, so only a small 'V' shaped section of the balcony divider can be opened/removed. You would have to crawl over the large supporting beams and through the 'V' to access the neighboring balcony. These beams were present between cabins 1066 and 1068, but NOT present between 1066 and 1064, which had a normal balcony divider. Had I known this, I would have booked 66/64 instead of 66/68.

 

Any other comments? Cabin Stewardess Helen was one of the best we've ever had - Crystal, Seabourn, Celebrity included. We found the bathroom storage spaces to be plentiful, but too small and/or oddly shaped to be very useful. Standard (non-Aqua Class) shower was excellent.

 

Solstice 2/22 - 3/1/09 Email me if you want photos of the two balcony dividers showing the large support beams on this balcony; I will email them to you within the next few days. dthornton at pacbell dot net. Please put 'Balcony Pic Request' in the subject line as I dump all spam.

With many looking for information on specific cabins on Solstice I thought it might be good to have a form of sorts for everyone to post basic information on each cabin that is easily read and searchable.

Hopefully if future cruisers will cooperate we can eventually obtain information on most every cabin and possibly get it as a sticky. Below is the information that I have noticed many wanting to know about the cabins. Please add any pertinant information that I might have missed. I will add a post after this one with just the questions that you can "Reply To" and add your information without copying and editing this first post. I hope to eventually get the basic info in a table and will try to post that periodically within the thread.

Please name your post with the title "Cabin # xxxx" so that those searching for information on a specific cabin can locate those easier with the search this forum option by using the cabin number that they need info on.

After the questions please add any comments concerning location - close to elevators, far from specific venues, etc. Also, post links to your photos of specific cabins or attach photos to the post.

1. Closet/drawer space was adequate for 7 days (maybe not for a longer cruise, but we didn't use cabinets above the bed so that would help).

2. TV swings toward the bed; no problem viewing.

3. Safe not so low that it's a problem reaching.

4. Beds are comfortable; 3 pillow choices.Hope this helps.[/b]

Deck - 6

Cabin # - 6176

Class – 2C

Starboard or Port Side - starboard

Bed near?(balcony or bath) –balcony

 

Quiet Cabin - Very quiet. We were near a crew staircase and never heard anything. If fact, the hallways were the quietest we've had on any cruise. There also was little noise from the walkway beneath our balcony.

 

Balcony View - Good view out to sea and horizon both when sitting or standing on the balcony. The only obstruction was when looking down. When looking down you saw the roof of the lifeboat.

Balcony Size? Normal

 

Was wind a problem? No problem

 

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

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? The water from the cold water faucet was surprisingly warm. This was not limited to our cabin, but noticed throughout the ship.

 

Any other comments? Storage was more plentiful than it appeared at first. There was plenty of room to store all our stuff.

Hi...we have Solstice aft cabin 2155 booked for 11/30 and I am concerned about what you said...soot and noise. Is the noise from above during the night or day or day and night...

I worry about sleeping without noise. Never had a bed close to the veranda before...

does that seem strange? In other words the sofa and sitting area is between the bed area and the bathroom?? Not sure I like that arrangement. Do you think being aft for the view offsets the negatives you mentioned? Thanks for the info!
