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

My husband and I booked an Aqua Class balcony room for this trip. The ship was older but still quite nice and clean. The room was also very nice. Unfortunately, that's where the very nice ended. The food was fair at best and the staff ... Read more

This was our very first cruise. LOVED IT !! We chose this ship because we thought it wouldn't be too overwhelming to us as first time cruisers. We arrived the day before so we could enjoy San Juan. Very nice.. we stayed in Old San Juan. ... Read more

We recently completed two 7 night cruises back to back on the Summit in a Sky Suite on Deck 6 and absolutely loved it. We are experienced cruisers having taken approximately 20 cruises (about 12 of them on Celebrity) and this was probably ... 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

We hadn't been to some of the islands on this itinerary and wanted to re-visit others. The ship is slightly smaller than some of the "Millennium" class ships and has a more intimate feel. The public spaces seem less crowded and ... Read more

We were back to back passengers on this cruise, having sailed on the prior cruise, the March 26 sailing. We were in a Suite Class accessible cabin on that cruise and for this, moved to a handicapped accessible veranda class cabin. Due ... 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

I have tried Carnival, Royal Caribbean and Norwegian, and this was our first time on Celebrity. They made our honeymoon truly memorable. We upgraded to the premium beverage package (they really push this on day 1, but we would have ... 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

This was a Spring Break cruise with 3 interior rooms for my hubby, myself, teenage son, and adult son, and girlfriend. We flew into San Juan the day before and stayed at the Hampton Inn and Suites. About a $20 taxi ride from the airport. ... 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

Just got off our 3rd cruise on the Summit. We have taken approximately 16 cruises, 8 which have been on Celebrity. We chose this one as there were a few ports we had not been to previously. Overall, enjoyed it as we usually do, but ... 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

From the first day to the last day we could smell sewer all over the ship. In the Stateroom hall ways, near the elevators, sitting outside waiting on excursions. This is the worse cruise we have ever been on. We have cruised Royal ... 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

This was a wonderful cruise. We flew in a day ahead to Tampa, then the next morning to San Juan. The Taxi was $28 US for 2 adults with luggage. Check in was easy. They had duty free shopping before you got on the ship with a good ... Read more
