My husband and I are both disabled and rely on scooters (EMV's) to get around. My review is on those aspects of our trip. Before I begin, I have to comment on Celebrity’s website. In fact, I was so aggravated that I sent a ... Read more

We just returned from a 7 night Southern Caribbean Cruise. The service and attention we received on this cruise was outstanding. We loved the bartenders in the martini bar and the bar by the main restaurant. We had a cabin in Aqua Class ... Read more

We stayed in Old San Juan at the Sheraton for a couple of nights before the cruise so that we could see the old town, the hotel was in the middle of major renovation work which resulted in their being only one restaurant and no inside bar ... Read more

We did the Tortola-Grenada-St. Lucia-St. Kitts-St. Thomas route. Our room was 6142- Royal Suite. I will post a few photos of the room at the end. I really did enjoy the layout of this room. It was the perfect room for a 7-night cruise. ... Read more

Let me start by saying the staff onboard are fantastic, the meals in Luminae were outstanding and the ports were beautiful however, this did not make up for a tired, worn ship that is in need of major upgrades. Granted our last cruise ... Read more

Totally enjoyed our cruise on the Summit. The crew is friendly, helpful, courteous and customer focused. Some reviewers doing the ship for showing its age, but you really need to look for it. ANY ship is going to show rust and wear and ... Read more

This was our third Celebrity cruise and first time on the Summit. We're in our early 60's and our daughter and her husband (mid-30's) joined us. We all had a great time. The embarkation out of San Juan was quick. We arrived around 11:30 ... Read more

We did the Solstice in the Mediterranean and loved it. We just did this Southern Caribbean and hated it. Mostly due to the ship itself. The ports were quite great. The Pro's: Solid Ports of Call. (except Martinique. They don't seem ... Read more

We are by no means party animals but we like an active cruise. This was our first Celebrity cruise as we normally sail on Royal Caribbean. I don't know if it was the time of year (end of October) or if Celebrity is geared toward the more ... Read more

This was the third time on the Summit. I prefer hands down the Solstice class. We have taken this ship three times because it was going where we wanted to go. We have sailed other Solstice class ships and knew the Summit was old and ... Read more

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent repositioning cruise on Summit. Although we were in a sky suite and had most of our meals in Luminae, we also went into the main dining room and the buffet. All of the restaurants had excellent food and ... Read more

DW and I have only cruised with Royal Caribbean - 25 or so times since 2001 (many of them short 3 nighters). Many times it has been recommended to us that we try out Celebrity, and so we booked this 8 night repositioning cruise from San ... Read more

I chose this cruise for the itinerary. Three of the five ports of calls I had not been to before. My husband and I enjoyed all the ports. We can't, however, say the same for the ship. Since we'd cruised with Celebrity before, I chose to ... Read more

My husband and I chose the Summit because of the port itinerary. We had previously been on the Celebrity Eclipse and were a little concerned because the Summit was an older ship. But the Summit was great and the staff worked really hard ... Read more
