Deck-by-Deck Breakdown of the Best and Worst Cabins onboard the Celebrity Eclipse

Deck 3 -- Plaza Deck

***CruiseAdvice.org Warning ***
Many cabins on this deck with potential problems.

Cabins on Deck 3 of the Celebrity Eclipse are reasonably well situated to avoid noise from the theater and the aft main dining room, as well as concerns from propeller vibration. There will be possible noise concerns for some cabins none the less, and this could particularly affect inside cabins (3144-3172). However, with a little forethough it is possible to find a quieter ocean view stateroom on Plaza Deck.

  • Ocean View Staterooms 3101, 3103, 3102, and 3104 are larger than average and are wheelchair accessible. Guest reviews of 3101, however, do indicate noise issues.
  • On the Eclipse Deck 3, port side exterior cabins 3108-3174 and interior cabins 3144-3172 are most directly under the casino, and after hours noise could be a concern. If you are light sleeper, bring earplugs or find a different cabin! 
  • Starboard Ocean View Staterooms underneath the night club are 3103-3129 on Deck 3 of the Eclipse. Again, after hours noise issues can not be ruled out, so we suggest to find a cabin elsewhere, bring along earplugs!
  • Starboard exterior staterooms 3131-3159 are probably the only cabins on Plaza Deck of the Eclipse which will not have extraneous noise factors.
  • Some of the worst cabins onboard the Celebrity Eclipse are on the Plaza Deck. While we are not suggesting the cabins on this deck should be completely avoided, there are staterooms on other decks which will be quieter.

Deck 6 -- Continental Deck

***CruiseAdvice.org Warning ***
Some cabins on this deck with potential problems.

Along this entire deck, the Entertainment Deck of the Celebrity Eclipse is right beneath your cabin. Most of the venues, such as the boutiques, art gallery, the bistro and other restaurants, are NOT open into the wee hours so the noise bleeding over from this area may not pose a significant problem.

  • On Deck 6 of the Eclipse, cabins 6241-6259 port side and 6236-6270 starboard are most likely to have noise issues from lounges below which feature music. You can find other quieter staterooms on Deck 6 of the Eclipse.
  • All 2C and 2D Veranda Staterooms on the Continental Deck have partially obstructed views on Deck 6 of the Eclipse.
  • Deluxe Veranda Staterooms 6135, 6137, 6139, and 6141 are a bit larger and are wheelchair accessible.
  • You'll find larger balconies for 1A category cabins 6211, 6212, 6215, 6214, 6237, 6236, 6239, and 6238. 
  • The largest accommodations on the Celebrity Eclipse's Continental Deck are Sky Suites 6305 and 6304. These suites have 300 sq. ft. of interior space and 79 sq. ft. balconies.
  • We also recommend Sunset Veranda Staterooms 6307-6306 which are situated between the Sky Suites aft on the Eclipse's Deck 6.

Deck 7 -- Sunrise Deck

The Sunrise Deck of the Celebrity Eclipse (Deck 7) has Family Ocean View Staterooms, Sky Suites and Sunset Veranda Staterooms. Also, cabins above and beneath this deck provide a buffer from the noises public areas can generate, thus making this one of the quieter decks.

  • Forward on Deck 7 of the Eclipse, Family Staterooms 7107 and 7108 boast up to 575 sq. ft. of interior space and have 53 sq. ft. balconies. However, given their forward location on Deck 7 of the Eclipse, be prepared for a rather windy view (unless there's a tailwind). Family cabins are in in short-supply and are very popular given their attractive sleeping arrangements. They sell out very quickly, so, it is best to book early to get a Family cabin.
  • Ocean View Staterooms 7139, 7143, and 7145 are larger than usual and are wheelchair accessible.
  • Category 1A cabins (7159, 7161, 7211, 7215, 7217, 7219, 7241, 7243, 7254, & 7247 Port side, and 7206, 7208, 7258, 7260, 7262, 7264, 7286, 7288, 7290, & 7292 Starboard) have larger balconies.
  • Aft on Deck 7 of the Eclipse, Sky Suites 7307 and 7356 have the best views and certainly the largest balconies on Deck 7.
  • Between the Sky Suites aft on the Eclipse's Deck 7, Sunset Veranda Staterooms 7309-7358 also boast great (and less breezy) aft views of the ocean.

Deck 8 -- Vista Deck

On the Celebrity Eclipse, Vista Deck features accommodations most similar in location and quality to Deck 7. Again, this will be a quieter deck because cabins above and beneath create a buffer from public areas.
 

  • Forward on Deck 8 of the Eclipse, Family Veranda Staterooms 8107 and 8108 are very spacious. There will most likely be a bit of a breeze from their balconies because of their location. As mentioned, family cabins are in in short-supply and are very popular -- book them early!
  • 8162 received very positive reviews for its location and its larger than standard balcony.
  • Cabins 8259-8277 and 8232-8250 are 1 B Deluxe Ocean View Staterooms with Verandas. Flat screen, interactive TV syetems and mini bars number among the amenities of class 1 B staterooms onboard the Celebrity Eclipse!
  • Staterooms which are category 1A (8251, 8253, 8255, 8257, 8279, 8281, 8283, 8283, 8197, & 8199 Port side and 8224, 8226, 8228, 8230, 8252, 8254, 8256, 8258, 8160, & 8162 Starboard) have larger balconies.
  • Aft, exterior cabins 8343 and 8334 are slightly larger than standard and have larger balconies.
  • Aft on the Eclipse's Deck 8, Sky Suites 8345 and 8336 are spacious, feature over-sized balconies, and afford great views of the ocean.
  • Sunset Verandas 8347-8338 are situated between the Sky Suites and have a great aft view of the ocean on Deck 8 of the Eclipse.

Deck 9 -- Panorama Deck

Panorama Deck of the Celebrity Eclipse features Concierge Class accommodations which include priority check in, an expanded room service menu, evening hors d'oeuvres everyday, as well as other amenities. Again, Deck 9 staterooms have cabins above and beneath which buffer noise from public areas.

  • Inside cabins 9196, 9202, and 9206 are wheelchair accessible on the Eclipse Deck 9.
  • Category 1A cabins (9155, 9157, 9207, 9209, 9211, 9215, 9237, & 9239 Port side and 9192, 9194, 9264, 9266, 9268, 9270, 9292, & 9294 Starboard) have larger balconies.
  • Aft, exterior cabins 9295 and 9366 do have slightly larger balconies than standard.
  • Aft, Sky Suites 9299 and 9374 are the most spacious on the Eclipse Deck 9, have the largest balconies, and have a great view of the ocean.

Deck 10 -- Sky Deck

***CruiseAdvice.org Favorite Deck ***
Highly rated by our cruise experts!

While Sky Deck is one deck beneath the ultimate luxury area on the Celebrity Eclipse, this deck features Royal Suites, Celebrity Suites, Sky Suites, and Concierge class accommodations. Cabins above and beneath you on Sky Deck makes this among the quieter locations for a stateroom or suite. Some of the best cabins on the Celebrity Eclipse are on Deck 10!

  • On the Eclipse's Deck 10, four Royal Suites, 1239, 1241, 1116, and 1118 are the most spacious accommodations on Deck 10 of the Eclipse. Each has 590 sq. ft. of interior space and a 158 sq. ft. balcony.
  • There are six Celebrity Suites on the Eclipse's Sky Deck (1110, 1112, 1114, 1233, 1235, and 1237). Each Celebrity space has 395 sq. ft. interior space and an 104 sq. ft. balcony.
  • Forward on the Celebrity Eclipse Deck 10, Concierge Veranda Staterooms 1022, 1024, 1026, and 1028 are a bit larger, have more spacious balconies, and are wheelchair accessible.
  • Aft on Deck 10 of the Eclipse, Sky Suites 1403 and 1198 are spacious (300 sq. ft.), have larger than normal balconies.
  • Eight Concierge Class Veranda Staterooms (1405-1200) located between the Sky Suites have wonderful (and less breezy) ocean views.

Deck 11 -- Penthouse Deck

***CruiseAdvice.org Favorite Deck ***
Highly rated by our cruise experts!

The Penthouse Deck is the high-rent district of the ship and features the best cabins (suites & penthouses) on Celebrity Eclipse. Given that this is where the high-dollar cabins are, this is also where the Celebrity Eclipse's best cabin stewards are usually assigned.

  • AquaClass Veranda Staterooms 1547-1605 and 1552-1610 are below the pool area and there could be some extraneous noise after hours, such as the scraping of deck chairs when staff are cleaning. If you are looking for AquaClass accommodations and amenities, you may want to look elsewhere.
  • Forward, AquaClass Veranda Staterooms 1501-1545 and 1502-1550 are closest to the Relaxation Lounge and are directly under the Spa facilities on Deck 11 of the Eclipse. These staterooms are not under the pool areas, but you might hear noise from the fitness machinery. Guests in 1518 have indicated that there was substantial noise issues from the treadmills. Even numbered cabins in the area of 1518 might also be under the treadmills.
  • The 5 interior cabins (1528-1536) are located more forward on the Eclipse Deck 11, and are likely to be among the nicer places for an inside cabin on this ship.
  • Forward, AquaClass Veranda Staterooms 1522, 1524, 1526, and 1538 are a slightly more spacious with larger balconies, and are wheelchair accessible.
  • The Penthouse Suites (1611 and 1616) have the most room (1291 s. ft.) and largest balconies (385 sq. ft.) on the Celebrity Eclipse.
  • The Eclipse's Penthouse Deck also has four Royal Suites (1607, 1609, 1612, and 1614) just forward of the Penthouse Suites, each of which as 590 sq. ft. of interior space and a 158 sq. ft. balcony.
  • Just aft of the Penthouse Suites, there are six Celebrity Suites (1615, 1617, 1619, 1618, 1620, and 1622).
  • AquaClass Veranda Staterooms and Concierge Veranda Staterooms (1621-1661 and 1624-1664) are situated in a quieter area, away from possible pool noise from above.
  • Aft on Deck 11 of the Eclipse, four Sky Suites (1663, 1666, 1665, and 1667) have larger balconies than standard and a wonderful ocean view!
  • Five Concierge Veranda Staterooms (1676-1668) are tucked between the Sky Suites, and will also have beautiful aft ocean views.

Deck 12 -- Resort Deck

Resort Deck staterooms and suites are also luxurious, although not as spacious as the Penthouse, Royal, and Celebrity Suites. However, cabins here might have some noise issues as indicated below.

  • Concierge Veranda Staterooms 2101 and 2102 are next to public bathrooms on Deck 12 of the Eclipse and this could be an additional noise issue.
  • Concierge Veranda Staterooms and Sky Suites (2115-2149 and 2114-2144) are situated just below the cafe, so there could be noise in the morning before and after 7:30am as staff prepare for the breakfast crowd, and this might be disturbing to travelers who like to sleep in. Because the cafe serves meals and snacks through the day, there could be noise from the diners as well as from staff clean-up after closing.
  • Sky Suites 2130, 2132, 2134, and 2136 are wheelchair accessible on Deck 12.
  • Two Concierge Veranda Staterooms, 2157 and 2152, are situated between the aft Sky Suites on Deck 12. These staterooms have a great view, but they may experience noise from the bar directly above them.
  • Aft, Sky Suites 2151, 2153, 2155, 2150, 2148, and 2146 have great aft ocean views. However, these suites are underneath the bar so there could be late evening noise concerns.
