Ship Facts: Celebrity Summit Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Summit Deck Plans
Budget cruising at its finest
I had the opportunity to go on two cruises this year, both of which were with Celebrity. The first cruise was in the Mediterranean on Celebrity Solstice and our second was in the Southern Caribbean aboard Celebrity Summit. The decision to sail on Summit was based almost completely on price as we were much more price conscious for the second cruise.

The Ship:

Definitely not comparable to a Solstice class ship but the recent renovation insures the ship remains competitively elegant. Decks 2-5 are done particularly well, however, the main dining room feels outdated and extremely antique. Our cabin was well layed out and made excellent use of the limited space. I wouldn't recommend getting a cabin on any floor below seven as an off-putting sewage smell seemed to lurk the halls.

The Food:

The OceanView cafe on Summit is poorly laid out which ultimately results to in long queues. You literally need to walk around the entire cafe to cover all the different stations. The quality of the food in the cafe was average to borderline poor. The formal dining room had some great dishes and I enjoyed the culinary experience overall. Qsine was worth the extra money; food presentation was remarkable and entertaining to consume. The coffee and biscotti at Cafe Bacio are superb.

Gay & Lesbian Cruising:

We were seated with an older straight couple in the formal dining room and took pleasure in their company. Probably one of the nicest couples I have ever met while cruising.

Overall:

Sail on Summit if you're looking for a quick getaway that's easy on the wallet yet still offers some of the staple Celebrity luxury.
