This is the room we stayed in, so we have lots of photos and details. Our take, in short: It was overdue for an upgrade.
The first thing we noticed when entering the room is that the entry is quite narrow. You can expect that from the smaller rooms on most cruise ships, though. The closet is directly behind the door, opposite of the bathroom. Next to the closet is a small dresser with vanity mirror, lights, and a very small storage place that’s already populated with wine glasses. Opposite the desk is a sofa bed for one person and a glass coffee table. On each side of the king-size bed is a night stand with drawers.
Light switches are placed by the door and by the bed, as well as next to the bathroom door. The room also has two 110-volt and two 220-volt plugs by the desk.
The king-size bed can be pushed apart to make two twin beds, so you needn’t cuddle anybody that you don’t want to. The bed itself is a bit soft, though not uncomfortable. The pillows could stand some replacing though, especially the decorative ones. The bedspread, too, has seen better days.
Inside rooms are designed for three passengers, but that would be quite a squeeze. There’s almost no space between the bed and the sofa bed. When the sofa is extended, getting out of the king bed is difficult. It gets worse. If you have to use the sofa bed then the coffee table has to move (it’s the Sliding Puzzle Blocks game, in essence). The only space for the coffee table is the entrance area, but doing so partially blocks the bathroom door and closet. It is a mystery to us how three people could have enough space here.
The desk opposite the sofa bed is humorously small, like they dared the designers to try and fit one in. In the corner of the closet, inside a shelf, is a really old, small TV. The is not a flat panel, nor HD, and the screen is tiny. The remote control doesn’t work very good and the the numbers are rubbed off.
Note that the Celebrity Summit has been slated for an overhaul in drydock in 2012 that, no doubt, will address many of these deficiencies.
Like the bedroom, the bathroom is very small. There’s only enough space for one person. The sink is a good size, though, and the counter is long enough for a lot of toiletries. The huge mirror makes the bathroom at least look bigger. Even though the bathroom was kept clean clean, the shower curtain was aged and in need of replacement.
The closet behind the door is big. There are a lot of hangers in the closet, as well as the life vests and two bathrobes. Another door to the left conceals six drawers and the safe.
