This was a repositioning cruise from New Jersey to San Juan with stops in St. Maarten and Tortola, and was our 5th cruise on the Summit. We thought our expectations could not be exceeded, but they were. We noticed a significant ... Read more

I was not pleased with the entertainment when comparing it with other cruises. It appeared because it was a 14 nt. & older group, which was constantly mentioned , that we didn't get the caliber of other cruises I've been on. ... Read more

The Summit needs urgent revamp and we were told that it will be in a shipyard at the beginning of next year to receive improvements and repairs. Embarkation at Cape Liberty in NJ was efficient but be aware that if you come from ... Read more

This was only my second time on Celebrity and to be honest I was very disappointed in everything. The cabins are small, the food was not up to my standards. The deserts were terrible. The only good thing I found was the Normandy, ... Read more

I had a few misgivings about taking such an old ship as the Summit but wanted to take a quick cruise from the NYC area, and the NCL Breakaway was the only alternative. I booked a Sky Suite on the Summit, and must say that everything about ... Read more
