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

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
