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

Spa cabins include the exclusive use of the Blu restaurant for breakfast and dinner. The Blu seats 144 people is a first come first serve basis. Each meal is prepared when you order not mass produced as is the main restaurant. We had a ... 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

This is my 4th cruise, my 4th with Celebrity, the 2nd one at Christmas and, for the first time, I was disappointed. The room was shabby - see below - and the dining room food was just about ok, although the service was great - even if a ... Read more

Primarily decided upon this cruise due to the itinerary as it stopped at 5 different Caribbean Islands that both myself and sister wanted to go to; Barbados, St Lucia, St Marteen, St Kitts and St Thomas. Acceptable points: 1. ... Read more

Overall we had a great time, but we were disappointed with Celebrity. We cruise an average of once a year, but haven't been on on Celebrity for several years. We tend to choose a cruise based on itinerary more than the line or ship. The ... Read more

Although they say they gave Summit an update in March 2016, I certainly didn't see it and was disappointed how aged and shabby it is looking. I have sailed other Celebrity vessels and must say Summit was the poorest I have been on. Staff ... Read more

Our family was celebrating our parent's 50th anniversary and the task of finding the right cruise was pretty much up to me. We travelled as a couple in their 70's, two couples in their 40's, single mom in her 40's, young adult of 23, and ... Read more

The cruise was overall very good. Arrived at pier at 4 pm to avoid crowds. Embarking was prety fast. Requested and was able to use Self-Assist debarking, leaving ship at 7 am with suitcases on hand. Port times could be longer. ... Read more
