We were excited to return to the Summit and do the Blues Cruise again. It was like night and day. Musicians were awesome, fellow cruisers a blast. No problem there. But, the service was horrible. Except for Nehemiah at the Pool Bar- ... Read more

This is our 3rd time on the Celebrity Summit and while some things have changed, I believe this is still a lovely ship to cruise on and a great value. Embarkation - We flew into San Juan around 12:30pm the day of the cruise, hopped in a ... Read more

We selected this cruise because we enjoy Celebrity cruises and we were able to get a great deal on an Aqua class stateroom. We were on the Solstice last winter on a two week cruise through New Zealand and Australia in Concierage class. ... Read more

We selected this cruise because it was going to 5 islands, 4 of which we had not been to before, and because my husband does not like too many days at sea. Embarkation was interesting. We were Concierge class and were told we could ... Read more

Our first cruise on Celebrity and we loved it. The crowd was around 40-60 year old range and the crew was some of the nicest we have ever had the pleasure to sail with. We stayed in a suite for the first time and are hooked with the ... Read more

We haven't sailed Celebrity in over a decade and were excited to sail again with them. The Summit did not disappoint. The ship was beautiful and well taken care of belying her age. Yes, you could find rust a couple of places if you ... Read more

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

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

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
