We had just been on a cruise last Aug where we left out of San Juan so this time we felt more prepared. We checked in which went smooth and then grabbed a taxi to a restaurant near the pier we visited last time. We then came back and ... Read more

We haven't sailed Celebrity in over a decade and were excited to sail again with them. The Summit did not disappoint. The ship was beautiful and well taken care of belying her age. Yes, you could find rust a couple of places if you ... Read more

I was on the San Juan to Bayonne repositioning cruise. I am new to Celebrity and had very high expectations based on how Celebrity brands themselves (luxury) and what other cruisers had to say. I try to take everything in stride and ... Read more

The Summit has always been my favorite ship. Check in was very easy and we were onboard very quickly. On the way to the room we noticed that the deck area was dirty and looked like it needed a good scrubbing. Our room was spacious with ... Read more

It was the third cruise out of dry dock for the Summit so the public areas were all in great shape. The terrace (and its large screen TV), added during dry dock, is a nice feature that keeps the Summit competitive with other ships. ... Read more

Overall this was a great cruise. The service and food were mostly very good. We were in the Aqua class staterooms which allowed us to dine in BLU and that was very nice. If there was something on the menu from the main dining area that ... Read more

For our honeymoon, the hubs and I decided to cruise around the Caribbean because 1) I figured if we were going to be traveling there, we should see as much as we could and 2) neither of us had been there before. It was a teensy bit more ... Read more

This was our first experience in a Suite and we loved it! We were booked in a handicapped accessible Sky Suite - due to a physical disability and the equipment we use, we cannot sail unless we have an accessible cabin. (As a side note, I ... Read more

It was the third cruise out od dry dock for the Summit so, for the most part the ship was on excellent shape. Particularly noteworthy was the addition of the "Terrace" and big screen TV on top deck at back of ship. This brought ... Read more

Last year was my first cruise and I sailed on the Reflection. I was hesitant to try a Millennium class ship, as I enjoyed the Solstice class so much. The Summit far exceeded my expectations, and I didn't think that was even possible. The ... Read more

We have been on three Celebrity cruises, twice on the Summit. We purposely booked a room on the top deck aft to get away from the party noise midship by the pool. We couldn't hear the party noise, but we certainly had to put up with ... Read more

Caveat: My husband and I were on a fully booked private charter of the Summit, so we cannot speak to the retail cruise experience. This review is about the ship itself and the officers, staff, and crew. The Good: The crew... wow! I ... Read more
