We were an extended family with five cabins and ranging in ages from 23 months to retirement age. The Summit was well maintained and the décor was beautiful - understated elegance without snobbery. We were not bombarded with ... 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

We are very disappointed with the vacation; the selection of food was horrible and left much to be desired. The food was really, really bad at the buffet. Other than the worn out and basic offerings like, pizza, fast food and sandwiches, ... Read more

Embarkation was a breeze. Disembarkation was disappointing, we only had carry-ons, so we were rather surprised that we could only disembark at specified times. We have been able to depart at our convenience with carry-ons only on other ... 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
