This was my first Celebrity cruise and I was quite disappointed. Embarkation was a little slow at Bayonne. Upon boarding the ship, they had free mimosas and champagne which was nice. The soft serve ice cream machine was broken but they ... Read more

We haven't sailed on Celebrity in perhaps 10 years. Their ships have interested us, but we continued to sail RCCL in order to attain Diamond status. We knew that Celebrity would honor our RCCL status on their ships. We sailed the Summit ... Read more

We have been on 28 cruises including the Summit, twice. We love leaving from Bayonne because it is so close to home. In fact, that is the reason we started using Celebrity and Royal Caribbean in the first place. We almost don't care ... Read more

My wife and I were intrigued by this cruise to Bermuda as we had been there 36 years ago and loved it. I noted that the Celebrity Summit was going to spend three days in Bermuda, unlike other ships which were docked for only a day or two. ... Read more
