My wife and I occasionally cruise every few years, this being our fourth cruise. We chose Celebrity to experience a level of service above what we had on Carnival 3 years ago. We picked the Summit out of San Juan, Puerto Rico to sail the ... Read more

We were originally booked on a cruise to Alaska, but the weather in New York had been so cold we decided a warmer weather itinerary would be better. We had taken the other leg of this cruise in 2015 so chose to do this one. Also by ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it had some islands that we had never visited and the our agent was offering a special package. This was my first Celebrity cruise on a Millienium Class ship. We sailed Aqua Class - 1) I love BLU and 2) I ... Read more

We have cruised 5 times now and are trying to narrow down what cruise line and style we like best. Celebrity Summit definitely is NOT one we would choose again. We chose this based on recommendations from our travel agent that we would ... Read more

We are Celebrity fans, but this cruise was below standard. The food in the main dining area was quite variable. One night the entree was undercooked and cold, then next night over cooked and tasteless. Steaks were like shoe leather. ... Read more

We did 2 weeks on the Summit. We were on the Summit 2 years ago on the same back to back. The entertainment was either a repeat or below average. The ship definitely did not have a 'fun' feel. They pretty much close up the pool area at ... Read more

This was our first cruise with Celebrity. We have done about a dozen other cruises so we are not "rookies" and think we are relatively normal (62, married, retired). The embarkation/debarkation was quite simple with no long ... Read more

This is our 4th cruise, second on celebrity. I could not have been happier with the Alaskan Cruise on the Solstice (Aqua class). I figured Celebrity would be my cruise line of choice. I did not book Aqua this time and boy do I regret it. ... Read more

My friend and I chose Celebrity because my travel agent said it was the only large-ship cruise line she would recommend. It was my eighth cruise, my 4th on a large ship, but the only one for which I can give a decent rating. I had switched ... Read more

Size of Summit is great, but it is deteriorating. Captain Kate is great, visible and genuinely friendly. Some staff were not so happy. Classic beverage package rules were confusing - got 5 different answers on first day. In a few cases, ... Read more

We chose this cruise primarily because we got such a great deal on it with great perks. We convinced another couple to go with us & had a great time. If you're looking for perfection on a cruise then you may never find it. I've seen ... Read more

This was our 2nd time on Summit, 5 years apart. Enjoyed the updated version, new carpet, new optional restaurants, but still not much to do other than the usual shows, casino, etc. The specialty shows in the main theater were very good, ... Read more

This was our second time on the Celebrity Summit. In 2014, we were in Aqua class, on another itinerary in the Caribbean. This time we had a regular balcony cabin. This cruise was November 26 – December 3, 2016. We were told by a ... Read more

This was our 4th time on the Summit, so obviously, we like it. The Summit isn't new or huge ship, it has no ice skating rink, rock climbing walls, slides, or bumper cars. What is has is impeccable service, really good food, and I always ... Read more

We booked this cruise back last April, while on our first Celebrity sailing. We originally booked an Aqua Class room. However, we decided after final payment date that we would upgrade to a Sky Suite. This was our third sailing with ... Read more

We cruised out of San Juan on Nov 22 and truly enjoyed the cruise. This was our 14th cruise and the 3rd with Celebrity. Embarkation was about as smooth as I have experienced and we were on the ship in 15 minutes with no hassles or ... Read more

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 were 2 couples traveling in two cabins. The embarkation and disembarkation were flawless. The ship and the cabin were physically tired. Our room was on deck 3. It was the last passenger cabin forward before the crews cabins. We ... 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
