Sailed November 2016
Ship was 1 1/2 hr late to Miami. Therefore everything was backed up. We arrived at parking place, 10 minutes away, and passengers were still being removed from the ship at 11am. Once we arrived at the ship the check-in lines were ... Read more

We had sailed with Celebrity previously (Australia & NZ) so when the opportunity to sail with them again to India, we jumped at the chance. Embarkation was very straight forward and we appreciated getting on board early so that we ... Read more

This was our 2nd time on Summit, 5 years apart. Enjoyed the updated version, new carpet, new optional restaurants, but still not much to do other than the usual shows, casino, etc. The specialty shows in the main theater were very good, ... Read more

We booked this cruise back last April, while on our first Celebrity sailing. We originally booked an Aqua Class room. However, we decided after final payment date that we would upgrade to a Sky Suite. This was our third sailing with ... Read more

As use, Celebrity gave great cruise. Maybe it's because it has been two years since our last cruise, but I believe the service was he best ever. We did not book any excursions through the ship as we have learned we can get equivalent ... Read more

Everything about the Celebrity Summit is just GREAT. I acknowledge that it doesn't have all the bells and whistles of the Solstice Class or the fun water slides etc (found on other lines). The ship gives you the feel of a traditional ocean ... Read more

We selected a Celebrity Reflection cruise base upon a nearly flawless cruise on a previous Celebrity cruise. Solstice class is the largest of the fleet, but not where some of the competition is. Older but updated ship was well ... Read more

This cruise on Equinox was by far one of the best I have been on. I will go through each area to specify what I liked but there were a few things that could be improved upon. Embarkation and Disembarkation: I felt that this process was ... Read more

Booked a concierge room due to the package being offered. Was thinking the room would be bigger. That was the only disappointment on this cruise. The Concierge-Dana was phenomenal. After a rough start our waiter became comfortable and was ... Read more

We booked the Millennium as a party of 12 celebrating a 70th birthday. Given the high premium we paid, we were expecting 2 weeks of good food and great entertainment. What we actually received was 14 days of disappointment where the ... Read more

Itinerary, timing and pricing were key factors in choosing this cruise. The ports were mostly places we wanted to see. It was the end of season to avoid crowds and the heat of summer. The price was very good because of late ... Read more
