Celebrity Summit: Hard to Swallow or Worthy of Seconds?

August 10, 2012 | By | 2 Comments

Foodie NewGirl12 may be somewhat new to cruising, but she knows her stuff. She took her husband, a first-time cruiser, to Bermuda on Celebrity Summit and the couple have a few opinions on the dining experience. This self-proclaimed “food snob,” but also a realist — she took the galley tour and understands the constraints on a ship’s kitchen — reviews the MDR, buffet, Normandie (French Continental), Qsine (hard to describe) and Bistro on Five (crepes). Not only is she thorough, but she’s lucky. The duo won enough in Bingo and the casino to cover their specialty dining. Check out her comprehensive review on cruising. For her efforts, NewGirl12 — along with the four other R.O.W., D&beach&J, nybumpkin, VegasMark (who offers great practical tips for Alaska cruising) and Bubbis3 — receives a Cruise Critic insulated sportsbag.

      Spot on review. I did notice that she called the pool attendant a “Pool Butler”. He is a steward no matter what you call him. A butler runs a large house. A steward takes care of you. I don’t know when this nomenclature took hold, but it’s just not right. Celebrity may call him a pool butler, but he is really the deck steward. It wouldn’t surprise me if before Celebrity has him in white tie and tails with ill fitting white gloves performing his duties. On Sitmar, the pool steward, in a white jacket with brass buttons and black pants, escorted you to available loungers, spread the towel, rolled another as a pillow, and got the drinks steward (also in a proper uniform) over to take your order. Now thats the way it should be.
