Ship Facts: Celebrity Summit Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Summit Deck Plans
Family cruise Dec 2012
Southern Caribbean cruise aboard Celebrity Summit Dec. 8-15, 2012 We are experienced cruisers, having been on Princess, Costa, Holland America, and Celebrity. Overall, this was our favourite cruise so far, and was a great experience. Celebrity is still our favourite. The itinerary was great, and weather was beautiful. We would definitely cruise with Celebrity again.

Pre-cruise: We stayed at the Hampton Inn in Carolina. It was a nice hotel, which was close to the airport, had free breakast, and was a short cab ride to the pier. I would definitely stay there again.

Embarkation: Fast and efficient. We arrived at 2:00 PM; and within 25 minutes, we were onboard.

Room: We travelled with two kids, and stayed in a room with two upper berths. The kids loved it, and although space was tight, we easily managed. The only annoying thing was that when the ship was at sea, there was an intermittent humming. Our room steward was okay at best, but very friendly.

Food: The food was quite good; and while there were some missteps, we were generally happy with the food. The buffet food was also quite good, and a lot of international foods and daily sushi were available. One slight annoyance was that the labelling of foods was inconsistent, and often wrong.

The ship: The ship was in good shape, and was modern and classy, in a typical Celebrity style. It was very clean, including public areas and washrooms.

Service: The service on Summit was good, but a bit questionable at times. A lot of the fine, classy touches we noticed on our previous Celebrity cruise are now gone, and are missed. There were times where we had trouble getting staff to clear tables, and times where service at the bar was inconsistent. Our head and assistant waiters in the main dining room, however, were amazing.

Kids program: Our kids really enjoyed the programs at the Fun Factory, and the staff were great.

Disembarkation: Smooth and efficient as well. We took the Bacardi distillery tour with airport drop off; which was okay, but took care of our luggage and killed a couple of hours instead of waiting at the airport.
