So we were on this same cruise 2 years ago and loved it. Everything met and exceeded our expectations. Coming back to Summit we were so disappointed as to how much everything had changed. The quality of the food has gone way down. ... Read more

This was our 1st Celebrity cruise but have been on a variety of other lines 25 times. We mostly chose this cruise due to the proximity to our home and the port of Bermuda for our 5th time and one of our favorites. Let's get to it; ... Read more

Nice, clean ship that gave all a feeling of having more space than on our last few cruises with NCL, Princess and RCCL. This was one of two big pluses for this ship. I don't really understand folks preoccupation these day with ship size ... Read more

As with all my reviews, this is my opinion, no need for sarcasm or flaming. We've cruised enough times and feel we have a pretty good insight as to what the industry used to be like and how it has changed. Arrival, approximately 11am, ... Read more

Overall, the ship and the cruise was incredible. Getting on to the ship was smooth and hassle-free, it only took us half an hour tops to get from the port onto the ship. We were greeted with champagne and canapés, a luxury not fond ... Read more

An Alaskan cruise was on our bucket list, and as we get older and a bit less mobile, we decided to go for it. We chose Seattle for a round-trip experience because it was easier. No regrets, but a couple of cautions. The airport is a ... Read more
