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

Deck 3 -- Plaza Deck

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

Several cabins on Deck 3 of the Celebrity Eclipse are beneath lively venues -such as the casino- that can be noisy late into the evening. If you are a light sleeper, Plaza Deck is not recommended.

  • Ocean View Staterooms 3101, 3103, 3102, and 3104 are larger than average and are wheelchair accessible. Please note that 3101 and 3103 are beneath public bathrooms, so noise -such as hearing water rushing in pipes- could be an issue when these restrooms are busy.
  • Starboard, 3106- 3126 are beneath CelebrityCentral. Because Celebrity Central is a venue for live entertainment as well as movies, and because it is open late at night, noise could be problematic in these cabins.
  • On Deck 3 of the the Celebrity Reflection, starboard exterior cabins 3128- 3174 and interior cabins 3144-3172 are under the casino, and after hours noise could be a concern. If you are light sleeper, you may prefer to find a cabin elsewhere on the ship, bring earplugs or consider investing in a wave machine (a sound device available at a specialty retailer like Brookstone -- produces pleasant sounds that can wipe out the unpleasant sounds). 
  • The best situated staterooms on Deck 3 of the Celebrity Reflection are all located port side (3131- 3159).
  • Some of the worst cabins onboard the Celebrity Reflection 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, be aware of the fact that the Entertainment Deck of the Celebrity Reflection is right beneath your cabin. That said, it should also be noted that most of the venues, such as the boutiques, art gallery, and the restaurants, are not open into the wee hours. It is possible to find a quiet stateroom on this deck with a little careful planning.

  • All Category 2D and 2C Veranda Staterooms on Continental Deck have partially obstructed views when looking down toward the ocean.
  • 6101- 6145 port side and 6102- 6146 starboard are over the Reflection Theater. Noise during rehearsals and performances could be a problem in these cabins.
  • Deluxe Veranda Staterooms 6135, 6137, 6139, and 6141 are a bit larger and are wheelchair accessible on Deck 6 of the Celebrity Reflection.
  • Veranda staterooms 6145, 6153, 6146, and 6154 will have partially obstructed views due to the cranes (davits) that move the lifeboats. The views through the railing on these verandas will be blocked.
  • Looking for a larger than standard veranda? We suggest 6211, 6215, 6237, 6239, 6241, and 6243 port side, and 6212, 6214, 6236, 6238, 6240, and 6242 starboard.
  • Aft, the largest accommodations on the Celebrity Reflection Continental Deck are Sky Suites 6307 and 6306. These suites have 300 sq. ft. of interior space and 79 sq. ft. verandas. Both suites also are wonderfully situated for magnificent views of the ocean. (It should be noted, however, that the verandas of these corner suites are smaller than other similarly situated Sky Suites on higher decks.)
  • We also recommend Sunset Veranda Staterooms 6309-6308, which are situated between the Sky Suites aft on the Celebrity Reflection's Deck 6. These will also have a great (and less breezy) ocean views from larger than standard verandas..

Deck 7 -- Sunrise Deck

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

Generally, in keeping with ocean liner tradition, the higher deck numbers boast higher quality cabins. This begins to happen on Sunrise Deck of the Celebrity Reflection. Deck 7 introduces Family Ocean View Staterooms, and has the Sky Suites and Sunset Veranda Staterooms as well. Also, cabins above and beneath this deck provide a buffer from the noises public areas can generate, thus making this one of the quiet locations for staterooms on the Celebrity Reflection.

  • Forward, Family Staterooms 7107 and 7108 boast up to 575 sq. ft. of interior space and have 53 sq. ft. verandas. However, given their forward location on Deck 7 of the Reflection, 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, 7141, 7143, and 7145 are larger than usual and are wheelchair accessible.
  • 7233 receives great reviews from past guests!
  • Moving from forward to aft, staterooms with larger than standard verandas are 7211, 7215, 7217, 7219, 7241, 7243, 7245, 7247, and 7307 port side, and 7258, 7260, 7262, 7264, 7286, 7288, 7290, 7292, and 7356 starboard.
  • Aft, Sky Suites 7309 and 7358 have the best views and certainly the largest balconies on Deck 7 of the Reflection.
  • Between the Sky Suites aft on the Reflection's Deck 7, Sunset Veranda Staterooms 7311-7360 also boast great (and less breezy) aft views of the ocean from larger than standard verandas.

Deck 8 -- Vista Deck

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

On the Celebrity Reflection, Vista Deck features accommodations most similar in location and quality to Deck 7. Again, this will be a more quiet deck because cabins above and beneath create a buffer from public areas. Vista Deck is also a great place for an Interior Stateroom.

  • Forward, Family Veranda Staterooms 8107 and 8108 are very spacious, with each boasting 575 sq. ft. with a 53 sq. ft. vernada. There will most likely be a bit of a breeze on these verandas because they are located forward on the Celebrity Reflection. As mentioned, 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.
  • Port side, 8201- 8249 and 8201- 8249, and starboard, 8166- 8222 and 8260- 8330 are in the indented sections of the ship. Consequently, the view looking down from the verandas of most of these staterooms will be of the lifeboats.
  • For more quiet locations port side and starboard on the Celebrity Reflection, we recommend the following. Port side, we suggest 8123, 8125, 8133- 8141, 8183, 8185, 8203- 8217, 8297- 8315, and 8341- 8345. Starboard, 8112- 8140, 8144, 8146, 8168- 8190, 8270- 8302, and 8330- 8338 are well situated for cruising.
  • Port side, 8251- 8257, 8279- 8285, and 8343, and starboard staterooms 8224- 8230, 8252- 8258, and 8334 will have larger than standard verandas in comparison to other staterooms in their category.
  • Aft, Sky Suites 8347 and 8340 are spacious, feature over-sized verandas, and afford great views of the ocean on Deck 8 of the Celebrity Reflection.
  • Sunset Verandas 8349-8342 are situated between the Sky Suites and have a great aft views of the ocean from larger than standard verandas.

Deck 9 -- Panorama Deck

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

Panorama Deck of the Celebrity Reflection features Concierge Class accommodations which include priority check in, an expanded room service menu, evening hors d'oeuvres everyday, as well as other amenities. Deck 9 also has staterooms with cabins above and beneath that buffer noise from public areas. This is also a good deck for Interior Staterooms.

  • Inside cabins 9196, 9202, and 9206 are wheelchair accessible on the Reflection Deck 9.
  • Veranda Staterooms with larger than standard verandas are 9207- 9215, 9237- 9243, and 9299 port side, and 9264- 9270, 9292- 9298, and 9374 starboard.
  • Most of the Veranda Staterooms located in the indented portion of this deck will have views of lifeboats when looking down from the verandas. These are 9159- 9205 and 9245- 9297 port side and 9198- 9262 and 9300- 9370 starboard.
  • The following lists the best situated staterooms on Deck 9 of the Celebrity Reflection. Port side, we suggest 9109, 9121, 9127- 9133, 9139, 9141, 9161- 9173, 9197- 9203, 9255- 9269, 9297, and 9299. Starboard, we recommend 9104- 9136, 9176, 9178, 9200- 9218, 9246- 9258, 9310- 9342, 9370, and 9374.
  • Aft, Sky Suites 9301 and 9376 are the most spacious on the Reflection Deck 9, have the largest balconies, and have a great view of the ocean.
  • Concierge Class Veranda Staterooms 9303-9378 are between the Sky Suites on Deck 9 of the Reflection, and have great aft views of the ocean from larger than standard verandas!

Deck 10 -- Sky Deck

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

Sky Deck on the Celebrity Reflection features Royal Suites, Celebrity Suites, Sky Suites, and Concierge class accommodations. The fact that there are cabins above and beneath you on Sky Deck makes this another great choice for a quiet stateroom or suite on the Reflection.

  • The four Royal Suites, 1239, 1241, 1128, and 1130 are the most spacious accommodations on Deck 10 of the Reflection. Each has 590 sq. ft. of interior space and a 158 sq. ft. balcony.
  • There are six Celebrity Suites on Sky Deck (1122, 1124, 1126, 1233, 1235, and 1237). Each Celebrity space has 395 sq. ft. interior space and an 104 sq. ft. veranda. 1233 and 1122 have larger than standard verandas.
  • Forward on the Celebrity Reflection Deck 10, Concierge Veranda Staterooms 1022, 1024, 1026, and 1028 are a bit larger, have more spacious verandas, and are wheelchair accessible.
  • Most of the Veranda Staterooms located in the indented portion of this deck will have views of lifeboats when looking down from the verandas. These are 1079- 1227 and 1251- 1401 port side and 1050- 1116 and 1140- 1206 starboard.
  • 1098 and 1096, both Interior Staterooms, have received noise complaints from past guests due to the proximity of these staterooms to a lift shaft/staff service area. 
  • Exterior staterooms that have larger than standard verandas are 1229, 1231, and 1243- 1249 port side, and 1118, 1120, and 1132- 1138 starboard.
  • The best situated exterior staterooms on Deck 10 of the Celebrity Reflection are as follows. Port side, we recommend 1019- 1025, 1059, 1061, 1081- 1091, 1217- 1223, 1261- 1277, 1401, and 1403. Starboard, we suggest 1006- 1022, 1026, 1028, 1052- 1072, 1100- 1110, 1150- 1178, 1206, and 1210.

Deck 11 -- Penthouse Deck

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

The Penthouse Deck is unquestionably the high-rent district of the ship. Some of the best cabins onboard the Celebrity Reflection are on Penthouse Deck. This is where all the suites and penthouse category cabins are located. Given that this is where the high-dollar cabins are, this is also where the Celebrity Reflection's best cabin stewards are usually assigned. That said, we do not recommend the starboard exterior staterooms in the forward section of this deck because these are beneath fitness areas. 

  • Forward, AquaClass Veranda Staterooms 1501-1545 and 1502-1550 are closest to the Relaxation Lounge and are directly under the Spa facilities. The starboard staterooms (1502- 1546) in this forward group are under the gym and aerobics areas, so noise could be problematic.
  • Forward on Deck 11 of the Reflection, AquaClass Veranda Staterooms 1522, 1524, 1526, and 1538 are a slightly more spacious with larger verandas, and are wheelchair accessible.
  • Most of the Veranda Staterooms located in the indented portion of this deck will have views of lifeboats when looking down from the verandas. These are 1551- 1597 and 1617- 1663 port side and 1556- 1612 and 1640- 1686 starboard.
  • Staterooms and suites that have larger than standard verandas are 1599- 1605 and 1616 port side, and 1614- 1620, 1636, and 1639 starboard.
  • Penthouse Suite 1611 has the most room (1291 s. ft.) and largest veranda (385 sq. ft.) on the Celebrity Reflection's Deck 11.
  • The Penthouse Deck also has four Royal Suites (1607, 1609, 1622, and 1624) 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, 1638, 1640, and 1642).
  • Aft on Deck 11 of the Reflection, four Sky Suites (1665, 1667, 1669, and 1688) have larger verandas than standard and wonderful ocean views!
  • Sky Suite 1667 has a support pole a the area at the base of the bed. 
  • Five Concierge Veranda Staterooms (1673-1690) are tucked between the Sky Suites, and will also have beautiful aft ocean views from larger than standard verandas..

Deck 12 -- Resort Deck

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

Resort Deck staterooms and suites are also luxurious, although not as spacious as the Penthouse, Royal, and Celebrity Suites. However, for the majority of Deck 12 cabins, we can not rule out potential noise issues from the pool area and eateries directly above on Lido Deck.

  • On the Reflection's Deck 12, Concierge Veranda Staterooms 2102 is next to the fitness area; while this could be a handy location for work out enthusiasts, there could be potential noise issues as well! We suggest locating farther aft to avoid this potential concern.
  • 2107 is under the Spa Cafe. Noise could be a problem when this venue is open, and when staff are cleaning this venue.
  • 2109- 2163 port side and 2108- 2160 starboard are beneath the pools and lounging areas on Lido Deck. Noise when staff are cleaning and while the pools are open could be an issue in any of these cabins.
  • The staterooms and suites moving back to the stern from the aft elevator are all located under the Oceanview 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. These cabins are 2167 to 2223 port side and 2164 to 2214 starboard.
  • Port side, 2165- 21 69 and starboard cabins 2162- 2166 are beneath the vicinity of public bathrooms. Noise -such as hearing water rushing through pipes- could be problematic when these restrooms are busy.
  • Sky Suites 2190, 2192, 2194, and 2196 are wheelchair accessible on Deck 12 of the Reflection.
  • Concierge Veranda Staterooms 2215 and 2206 have oddly shaped balconies that could be larger than average.
  • Aft on Deck 12 of the Reflection, Sky Suites 2217, 2219, 2221, 2212, 2210, and 2208 have great aft ocean views. However, these suites are underneath the bar so there could be after hours noise issues.
  • Two Concierge Veranda Staterooms, 2223 and 2114, are situated between the aft Sky Suites. These staterooms have great views of the ocean, but may share the same noise concerns from the bar directly above.

Deck 14-- Lido Deck

Forward on Deck 14, you'll find Celebrity's innovative Reflection Suite and five Signature Suites port side! Without question, these suites are among the finest on the Celebrity Reflection!

  • The Reflection Suite, 4101, boasts 1,636 square feet of interior and a 194 square foot veranda, and is the largest suite on the Celebrity Reflection. This luxury suite is located most forward on Lido Deck, and has 2 bedrooms and an array of luxurious amenities. Due to its forward location, however, it might be windy on that gargantuan balcony! Because there are lounge chairs for sunbathing and the X Club for teens above this suite, noise could be a concern.
  • The five Signature Suites, 4103 - 4111, are port side nestled just behind the Reflection Suite.
  • Each of these suites offer 441 sq. ft with a 118 sq. ft. veranda.
  • Please note that the X Club, a youth facility, is above the Signature Suites. Noise could be a concern in this suites while the X Club is open.
