After having a wonderful trip on Celebrity Millennium in 2010, we decided to sail with them again, this time on the Summit, we would not be disappointed. After spending three fun filled days in San Juan(Coral Princess Hotel, small boutique style hotel, very friendly, right in the middle of Condado, near shops and restaurants, steps from the beach and most importantly....Walgreens), we embarked at noon. No line ups, no hassle, no problem and plenty of champagne to go round. We sat down to eat lunch at 12:30, the superb quality of the food was only to be a precursor of what was to follow.....
Spent familiarizing ourselves once again with the layout of the ship(its amazing how soon you forget). Our cabin was ready by 2pm and our luggage arrived at 4pm.
We chose fixed seating to eat in the Cosmopolitan dining room, we would not be disappointed. Dinner was always exceptional, service superb and the company at our table outstanding.
The entertainment was enjoyable and varied, the comedian Fred Klett very funny without being vulgar, and the ships dancers and band really good.
We ordered room service every morning, coffee, juice and croissants, it was always prompt and fresh.
Our room attendant did a wonder full job attending to our needs and wants right down to the towel animals and the chocolates on the pillows at night.
The whole ship was clean and well kept for an older ship.
Disembarkation was well organised and we were off the ship sooner than we expected.
Only a couple of minor negatives. We attended most of the events in the Revelations night club, the music that is played there in no way reflects the majority age group of the passengers. On several nights after the "event", the DJ immediately started playing top 20 dance music, clearing the room in minutes. Pop music such as Beatles or Abba I'm sure would have kept folk around.
The other negative which in no way is Celebrity's problem is the manners a large percentage of the passengers. Even if you can't speak English or Spanish, how difficult would it be to say please and thank you when asking for food throughout the ship. How can kids be expected to learn respect with parents like these!!!.No excuse.
All in all we would definitely sail with Celebrity again, already missing the Creme Brulee and apple pie a la mode.
