Ship Facts: Celebrity Summit Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Summit Deck Plans
Winter break
This was our second cruise on the Summit. Last year before, dry dock and now 9-16 February. The upgrades to the public areas made the ship look new, however, the cabins needed some more work as there was evidenced by rust in the bathroom and on the balcony.

But on to better things.

Embarkation was smooth and effortless. We had packed swimsuits in our backpacks and changed into them on the pool deck. This allowed us to use the pools while awaiting the staterooms to be released. When this happen our luggage was waiting. The cabins were as expected except for the above mentioned rust. One thing that they could add to the cabins would be dead bolts like you get in hotels. Anyone with a pass key could overcome the locks on the cabin doors.

Shore Excursion: Only took one and that was in Barbados. It was a good value. Swimming with the turtles and then snorkeling a ship wreck and reef. The fish and coral were exceptional and the turtles made for a great experience. The only drawback was the chaos when leaving the ship. The port authorizes were slow in clearing the ship and that lead to a back up at the gangway.

Dinning: We opt for late seating at a table for eight. Sadly, our table mates were in Aqua class and only ate in the main dining room one night. That meant that we were at a table for two most night. You would think that the dining room staff when making table assignment would know who were in Aqua class and seat them together so that those of us that were not in Aqua class would have table mates. If I wanted a table for two I would have requested it. Part of the fun of cruising was meeting new people and sharing the experience. The food and service was as expected, beyond reproach.

Entertainment: First, the cruise director, Lisa, was one of the best. She was always around and spoke to everyone, as was most of the Senior Officers. This is a Celebrity exclusive, since the senior staff has not been seen on other cruise lines. The production shows were outstanding. However, the guest entertainers were just so so. Nothing outstanding. The other acts playing throughout the ship were just right.

Disembarkation: Smooth. Small lines at Customs and Border Protection. Cabs to the airport were plentiful so the going was easy.

In summary: It was a good trip and any problems were minor and did not detract from the experience.
