No bells, no Whistles, no problem: Celebrity Summit Cruise Review by Mar y Sol
Overall Member Rating
No bells, no Whistles, no problem
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Bayonne (Cape Liberty)
Having cruised , at least once, with Carnival, Princess, Costa, Holland America, and four or fives times each with NCL and Royal Caribbean, our preference, hands down, is Celebrity. Every facet of our experience was a notch above the other lines. The stage shows were a bit better. The variety and talent of the club room entertainers made it difficult to choose a particular lounge. The dinner menu was also interesting, escargot was available every evening, and the food arrived hot. Now the specialty restaurant, Qsine, was certainly special.. If there were one like it in More Manhattan, we would be regulars. To maximize the Qsine experience, go as a group of four or more so that you can sample the full range of the restaurant's menu. Other highs included a professional golfer from the LPGA who gave three or four group lessons and a private video analysis of your swing.
This was a last minute, drop everything and go cruise that left from Port Elizabeth on October 19, 2013. It was a repositioning cruise to San Juan. An email offering ridiculously low prices for the few remaining inside cabins on decks 2 came at just the right moment, a birthday. So off we sailed into the sunset and had ta most enjoyable on board experience. Less

The cabin was fine, the beds comfortable.
Port and Shore Excursions
We took a cab to Rainbow Beach. The water was crystal clear, the shore bottom sandy, and the beach uncrowded. We expected to rent chairs and an umbrella, but the taxi stop bar/restaurant was had no more. Luckily, right next door was Cottages by the Sea, and the proprietor rented both to us for considerably less. It was a beautiful day for the beach and we were able to enjoy it, thanks to Cottages by the Sea.
