We just came back from a 7 day cruise from Bermuda. I went with mu husband, parents, sister and her husband. My 9 y/o niece and nephew. It was our first time on the Celebrity Summit cruise ship and our first time leaving from Cape Liberty- Bayonne Nj.
Embarkation: We got to terminal around 11am and was on the ship no later than 12. Impressed on the organization. Daily parking is 19.00 per day if you wish to leave your car. No worries on luggage weight- take as many as you need.. No weight restriction.
Pool- gets very crowded when cruising at sea. The " pool patrols" are always lurking around for those who leave their chair more than 30 minutes. They will take your belongings and places it aside. Seriously!!!!
Does the cabin location really matter??? YES!! If you easily get sea sick- stay in the middle of the ship- in the lower decks-- recommendatio: get the patch or the wrist band.. It works..
Food: We ate the MDR every night... Food was excellent!!! From appetizers to dessert!!! And you can order more than one dinner at a time.. Why not?? Might as well try everything....
Breakfast and lunch buffet was okay- same food everyday.. The hamburger/hot dogs served at the grill is as delicious as prior reviews indicated.
Service: Cant say enough about the service... Excellent service during dinner- our waiters- Jose and Rinaldi was so attentive . Our cabin attendant- excellent as well!!! Only minor complaint I have is the service during buffet breakfast and lunch.
Entertainment: Shows were great!!! You cannot miss the comedian, Steven Scott!! Omg!! Hysterical!! Also - dancing with the stripes-- don't miss it!!
Bermuda: !! We arrived at Kings Wharf Wednesday morning!! We were in awe.. Gorgeous!!! Took ferry to Hamilton - harbor night-- went to horshoebay -- breathe taking .. Went to Snorkel Park beach- very nice.. Drinks and food is expensive there..
Excursion: only did one- BBQ island in Snorkel Park- food was ok but the show was fun...
Overrall: Bermuda is an amazing!!! We had a great time on this cruise.. The cruise staff, the food, the service. It was a cruise my family and I will never forget!!!! Great job Celebrity!!!
