Do not book if they want to put you in concierge room 8114! This cabin is adjoined to the sewage line. Our bathroom smelled of raw sewage constantly. We also had no water pressure in the shower. I resorted to using the spa showers since ... Read more

Ship, once again, had propulsion issues. They canceled day one, leaving me to scramble for a hotel in San Juan. They revised the itinerary so we just missed a day at sea. Cruise itself was great. Qsine was outstanding. Tuscan grill is ... Read more

We'd heard mixed reviews on this ship and were pleasantly surprised on how much we liked it. It was a good size, not too big or too small. The staff on the ship provided a high level of service and was extremely friendly. There were a lot ... Read more

We have sailed Carnival and Norwegian before. I will say the food on those ships was better. Maybe it was because we had a shorter cruise, we only had 4 nights, but no meals really wowed me. Especially the desserts! I was really ... Read more

My friends and I were so excited to book this cruise with ocean view staterooms next door to each other, four gals who love a great time and this music we grew up with. This was the first cruise for all four of us so we have nothing to ... Read more

This was a charter with Star Vista 70's Rock and Romance Cruise. It was our first cruise ever and we truly enjoyed it. Since Star Vista takes care of the entertainment and activities I won't comment except to say their staff was wonderful ... Read more

The music on this cruise was FABULOUS! Our onboard experience was the BEST! We had our Vows renewed and the ceremony was officiated by Barry Williams (Greg Brady from the Brady Bunch). The food was good but not spectacular. We had ... Read more

Wow, what a great cruise. I’ll preface this with we went on the same cruise last year. Also, it was a Charter and left on the 27th of February and was 5 days. Arriving at Port Everglades, we found Starvista had a great backdrop ... Read more

I have sailed on most of the cruise lines, but this was my and my husband's first time on Celebrity. We are both 39, no children and value mostly the food and ports over the quality of service and entertainment on the ship. We sailed ... Read more

My husband and I did this exact cruise in 2011 and absolutely LOVED the Celebrity experience! Since then, we've done a Celebrity Med cruise, an NCL and a Carnival cruise. We took our daughter on the NCL cruise, and I also took her on ... Read more

The Summit is a nice size ship. It didn't feel crowded and the service was excellent. The embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly. We rented a car in San Juan and explored the El Yunque rain forest before we boarded the ship around ... Read more

We chose this cruise because the ship was advertised as a 5 star and the price was great. Since we had booked so far in advance, we had a generous room credit and tips were included. We had cruised with Celebrity once before (European) but ... Read more

I have cruised with WindStar, Holland America(2), Royal Caribbean(3), Disney, and Oceania (15). Tried Celebrity because we went with friends, but after 15 Oceania cruises, this was so disappointing. I guess the old story holds true - you ... Read more

First a caveat: my experience as a cruiser is very limited (3 cruises/3 cruise lines now) but all of us agreed that this ship, while still a relaxing cruise, had little to set it apart from the other cruises we've been on. I will say that ... Read more
