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 have loved Celebrity in the past, but things seem to be deteriorating from their high standards of operation. The Summit is needing renovations, especially the staterooms. From the bed skirts to the black grout and rusty areas in ... Read more

We are very disappointed with the vacation; the selection of food was horrible and left much to be desired. The food was really, really bad at the buffet. Other than the worn out and basic offerings like, pizza, fast food and sandwiches, ... Read more

Embarkation was a breeze. Disembarkation was disappointing, we only had carry-ons, so we were rather surprised that we could only disembark at specified times. We have been able to depart at our convenience with carry-ons only on other ... Read more

This was our 3rd cruise with Celebrity, and a total of 13 cruises. The only problem we had was on embarkation. We flew in to San Juan the day of the cruise, and got to the ship around 3:30 pm. Made it to the suite check in line to turn ... Read more

We selected this cruise because it was going to 5 islands, 4 of which we had not been to before, and because my husband does not like too many days at sea. Embarkation was interesting. We were Concierge class and were told we could ... Read more

Our first cruise on Celebrity and we loved it. The crowd was around 40-60 year old range and the crew was some of the nicest we have ever had the pleasure to sail with. We stayed in a suite for the first time and are hooked with the ... 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
