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 our 4th Celebrity Cruise, and the biggest disappointment in Celebrity. San Juan was great and boarding was a breeze. Because of our wonderful previous experiences with Celebrity, we recruited 10 friends and family members to ... Read more

This was our sixth sailing on the Summit. This was the last week before her 2 week dry dock. The ship was in excellent shape, always clean. The food in the MDR and the Oceanview Cafe some of the best we have had on a cruise. Everyone on ... Read more

This was our second cruise on the Summit. The first time was also two weeks before it went into drydock. We flew in two days before the cruise, and stayed in a small hotel in the middle of Old San Juan. We had a nice time exploring the ... 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

This was our 2nd time on Summit out of San Juan---different ports of call. We really like sailing from San Juan because the embarkation port becomes part of the vacation. Embarkation was very smooth and quick. The only jarring note was ... Read more

My wife and I are rather plain, ordinary people; we're both about sixty years of age - she works in a Library and I drive Taxi. Our house is paid for and our three children have "flown the coup", so we enjoy Cruising the ... Read more

Celebrity is our favorite cruise line and we always enjoy ourselves. It markets to the active over "40" crowd. Unlike Holland-America which we've found to be kind of an old age home for cruisers, this line is about right for us. ... Read more

We really enjoyed just about everything on this cruise. Departing from San Juan means that you are in the Lesser Antilles the whole of the time - just skipping from island to island. Our cabin, 8148, was great - not one thing to ... Read more

Flew into San Juan a few days prior to the cruise. Flying in early turned out to be great. Not only did we have time to unwind, we also got to enjoy the San Sebastian street Festival. Old San Juan was quite crowded with people enjoying ... Read more

My husband and I have been on 8 cruises each (four of them with us being together) Out of the 4 we've been on together, I'd have to say this was our favorite. I love that the ship is not too ginormous and that you are able to easily ... Read more

As usual, I booked this trip more than a year in advance, and never had any reason to regret having done so. Not only did I get the best airfare as soon as the airline's booking window opened, the cruise fare never fell to a lower level ... Read more

Our 7th cruise on the Summit. It is a great size and we find that the public areas, lounges, venues etc. are just great. They have many things to do aboard and the crew is the best around. We did many excursions on the islands mostly with ... Read more

PRE-CRUISE HOTEL We stayed at the Sheraton Old San Juan. Cab ride from airport was $17. Hotel was just OK. The rooms are old and tired. Biggest complaint was the bed which was definitely not "Heavenly" (I removed the bedding ... Read more
