First a caveat: my experience as a cruiser is very limited (3 cruises/3 cruise lines now) but all of us agreed that this ship, while still a relaxing cruise, had little to set it apart from the other cruises we've been on. I will say that ... Read more

This was my 3rd cruise and 1st on Celebrity - the other two being with Princess and Norwegian and all 3 being 7-night itineraries to various parts of the Caribbean within a 2-year period. Overall, my first experience with Celebrity was ... Read more

Overall we had a great time, but we were disappointed with Celebrity. We cruise an average of once a year, but haven't been on on Celebrity for several years. We tend to choose a cruise based on itinerary more than the line or ship. The ... Read more

Although they say they gave Summit an update in March 2016, I certainly didn't see it and was disappointed how aged and shabby it is looking. I have sailed other Celebrity vessels and must say Summit was the poorest I have been on. Staff ... Read more

Our family was celebrating our parent's 50th anniversary and the task of finding the right cruise was pretty much up to me. We travelled as a couple in their 70's, two couples in their 40's, single mom in her 40's, young adult of 23, and ... Read more

My wife and I were on the Christmas cruise to the southern Caribbean. The itinerary was great and we had a very good time. I cruised with Celebrity 3 times before but not since 10 years ago. Pluses - many. Very nice cabin attendant and ... Read more

I have been very fortunate to travel all over the world via 5-star resorts and great cruise lines. This was my husband and my first Celebrity experience. I read the reviews from cruise critic and was somewhat Leary about our trip. We ... Read more

The cruise was overall very good. Arrived at pier at 4 pm to avoid crowds. Embarking was prety fast. Requested and was able to use Self-Assist debarking, leaving ship at 7 am with suitcases on hand. Port times could be longer. ... Read more

We booked this cruise 2+ years ago when we were on the Celebrity Reflection. I really was interested in the ports on this cruise so we booked it! We had a great time and met some great people. The ports were a nice surprise but 5 ports ... Read more

This was our 7th Celebrity cruise, first time aboard the Summit. It is a nice enough ship but definitely showing signs of wear and tear, in the form of cracked tile in the bathroom, mildewed shower curtain, stained sheets and frayed ... Read more

This was my third time on the Summit in 2 years. I like the Summit's small size. Cabin: When I cruise, I only require a window. This time we booked "Guarantee Balcony" about 3 weeks prior to sailing. there were 4 of us ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we loved the itinerary and like Celebrity the best. The Summit had a recent makeover and everything was clean and fresh. We went to five different ports and six if you count Puerto Rico. We sailed to Barbados, ... Read more

We are Celebrity fans and booked two back to back cruises. The itineraries were ideal for this purpose and visited some very nice places. The cruise was good, overall. The food was better this week than the previous week,although ... Read more

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
