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.

Cabins on Deck 3 of the Celebrity Reflection 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). Keep in mind the fact that a main drag of the this ship is directly above you. Theses cabins are below the Quasar Night Club and shops port side, and Celebrity Central and Fortune's Casino are above the starboard cabins.

  • Ocean View Staterooms 3101, 3103, 3102, and 3104 are larger than average and are wheelchair accessible.
  • On the Reflection 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, 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). 
  • Starboard Ocean View Staterooms underneath the night club are 3103-3129. Again, after hours noise issues can not be ruled out, so we suggest to find a cabin elsewhere, bring along earplugs, or invest in a wave machine.
  • Exterior staterooms 3131-3159 are probably the only cabins on Plaza Deck of the Reflection which will not have extraneous noise factors; these cabins are located most directly beneath the shopping venues on Deck 4
  • 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, you should be aware 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, the bistro and other restaurants, are not open into the wee hours so it is possible to find a little peace and quiet.

  • On the Reflection's Deck 6, cabins 6246-6272 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 Reflection.
  • All 2C and 2D Veranda Staterooms on the Continental Deck have partially obstructed views.
  • Deluxe Veranda Staterooms 6135, 6137, 6139, and 6141 are a bit larger and are wheelchair accessible on Deck 6 of the Reflection.
  • 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. balconies. Both suites also are wonderfully situated for magnificent views of the ocean!
  • We also recommend Sunset Veranda Staterooms 6309-6308 which are situated between the Sky Suites aft on the Reflection's Deck 6. These will also have a great (and less breezy) ocean view.

Deck 7 -- Sunrise Deck

Generally in keeping with cruise ship 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 quieter locations for staterooms.

  • Forward, 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 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!
  • 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.

Deck 8 -- Vista Deck

On the Celebrity Reflection, 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.

  • Ocean View Staterooms 8259-8277 and 8232-8250 are midship Deluxe Ocean View Staterooms with Verandas on Deck 8 of the Reflection.
  • Forward, 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 given their attractive sleeping arrangements. They sell out very quickly, so it is best to book early to get a Family cabin.
  • Aft on the Reflection's Deck 8, Exterior cabins 8343 and 8334 are slightly larger than standard and have larger balconies.
  • Aft, Sky Suites 8347 and 8340 are spacious, feature over-sized balconies, and afford great views of the ocean on Deck 8 of the Reflection.
  • Sunset Verandas 8349-8342 are situated between the Sky Suites and have a great aft view of the ocean.

Deck 9 -- Panorama Deck

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. 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 Reflection Deck 9.
  • Aft, exterior cabins 9299 and 9374 do have slightly larger balconies than standard.
  • 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 a great aft 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 Reflection, this deck 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 among the quieter locations for a 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. balcony.
  • Forward on the Celebrity Reflection Deck 10, Concierge Veranda Staterooms 1022, 1024, 1026, and 1028 are a bit larger, have more spacious balconies, and are wheelchair accessible.
  • 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. 
  • Aft, Sky Suites 1405 and 1212 are spacious (300 sq. ft.), have large balconies, and afford great views of the ocean.
  • Eight Concierge Class Veranda Staterooms (1407-1204) located between the Sky Suites on the Reflection's Deck 10 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 arguably the high-rent district of the ship. The best cabins onboard the Celebrity Reflection are generally onboard the 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.

  • 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 in this forward group are under the gym and aerobics areas, and very occasionally guests in similar arrangements report issues with noise.
  • The 5 interior cabins (1528-1536) are located more forward on the Reflection Deck 11, and are likely to be among the nicer places for an inside cabin on this ship.
  • Forward on Deck 11 of the Reflection, AquaClass Veranda Staterooms 1522, 1524, 1526, and 1538 are a slightly more spacious with larger balconies, and are wheelchair accessible.
  • AquaClass Staterooms 1547, 1549, 1552, and 1554 have partially obstructed views.
  • Penthouse Suite 1611 has the most room (1291 s. ft.) and largest balcony 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 1678) have larger balconies than standard and a wonderful ocean view!
  • Five Concierge Veranda Staterooms (1673-1680) 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, in the majority of the Resort Deck 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; whilw 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.
  • The staterooms and suites moving back to the stern or back of the ship 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.
  • 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 a great view 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 balcony. 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!
  • The five Signature Suites, 4103 - 4111, are port side nestled just behind the Reflection Suite.
  • Each of these suites feature butler service among a host of other wonderful perks!
  • Please note that the X Club, a youth facility, is above the Signature Suites. This might mean there are noise issues in these suites during the day.
