Recommended Posts

We are on a 2021 sailing on Infinity in the ned and this weekend the sunset suites appeared available for booking . They are priced a tad over the CSs but do not in clude the RS perks.

They appear to have replaced the FVs and while a larger footprint than an S" on the S Class shipeips the innner ones dont't seem that special over a CS but the outer ones seem worth it (I have booked one for our sailing for my SiL rather than thier origional CS booking.

Oh, too bad!  We figured it was coming.  We were in 8166 going through the Panama Canal in 2017 and it greatly enhanced our cruise.

Have been trying to figure out where these suites were. They are really pricey. Probably overpriced.

 

Thanks groryjm.

Have you compared the square footage?   I know the balcony is great but I think the CS might still be a better value for the size of the suite.  I believe the sqft of these rooms are similar to a S2.  I'd see them priced between S1 and CS.

I called the Capt Club for info on these cabins.  The info they have is they are 538sq ft probably including balcony.  The CC points are 12 per night same as the CS.  They had no info on what was being done to enlarge the existing bath to put  in a decent size shower or tub/shower.

I wonder how many guests they will take? The FV rooms (if I remember rightly) were the only rooms on the ship suitable for a couple with three young children...

Well, it was coming. Just thankful that we’ve spent so many wonderful nights in those FVs as it won’t be happening in the future.

I priced a sunset suite on a future cruise, the one next to the aft balcony we already have booked, and the price was $2500 more pp than the CS.  The actual cabin is 271sf with a balcony of 242, and the CS is 467sf with a balcony of 85.  Those FV cabins were wonderful and could often be snatched at a good price once they released them into general inventory for 2 people, but I can see how Celebrity felt they could get better revenue out of them by redesigning and changing the category.  There's no way IMO that they're worth more than a CS since they're about the same size as the SS.  Seems like they should price between the SS and the CS instead, but time and demand will tell I guess.

I was on a cruise to New Zealand when this thread came out, so forgive me for publishing this a month late:

 

As far as M class Sunset Suite sizes go, I have actually measured out the dimensions (as FV cabins) because Celebrity used to publish a single number for cabin interior square footage and balcony space when in reality the interiors come in 2 different sizes and the balconies come in 6 different sizes. 

 

The corner Sunset Suite is larger than the adjacent non-corner suite. The corner suite has 293 sq ft of cabin space plus an additional 60 sq ft of a private hallway that is behind a locked door and is not shared with any other cabin.  The non-corner suites are shorter in length--they are 259 sq ft and their cabin door opens into the main hallway like most other cabins.  These dimensions do not vary by deck.  As FV cabins, the larger size of the corner location translated into an additional closet and a longer desk and wall mirror compared to the non-corner FVs.  Of course as Sunset Suites they will be completely re-furnished although there is the potential for them to be furnished differently because of the size variation.

 

Everyone is aware that the significant difference in balcony sizes between the corner and non-corner suites.  I have measured the Deck 8 corner balcony to have 327 sq ft and the non-corner balcony to be 235 sq ft. 

 

However all aft balconies on M class become approx 3 feet deeper with each successive lower deck which means that the corner suite balcony on Deck 7 is bigger than the one above it on Deck 8 which is bigger than the one above it on Deck 9.  A Deck 7 corner balcony was measured to have 369 sq ft and the corresponding non-corner balcony was approximately 270 sq ft.  I have never stayed in any Deck 9 FVs because of the public deck (Oceanview Bar) above it, but you can roughly estimate their sizes by subtracting 36 sq ft from the Deck 8 sizes.
