Celebrity Summit Aqua Class - Elite Cruise Status
Embarkation: Bayonne (Cape Liberty)
We are frequent cruisers-36 in all. age 36 in All. -Age 77 and 79. the ship docks port side. We got aqua class last minute and only paid &200 for deck 9. Deck 9 has an overhang and a post called an obstruction but not a problem. Hose paver, you get no sun. We were on starboard side so did not see port. Ship needs lots of work. The balcony was filthy and could not see out of the glass nor out of the dining room windows.the wee full of Lots of repairs were going on at port days and the sunset bar was closed for two days, plus ceilings being pulled down. Keys didn't work 6 times and safe once. Inconvenient to spend an hour in your room while they change a battery and go down to deck 3 to get a new key. Aqua class, our take. You get the Persian garden, hot and wet sauna, Turkish bath and heated seat for about six. Two bottles of water a day and iced tea and canapés that are terrible. Stopped them- You get to eat in Blu for breakfast and dinner. Menu is limited. Didn't know you More
could ask for shrimp cocktail or escargots till afterwards. Fillet mignonette and short ribs were delicious Rest of menu so do,good, fast service, very quiet. Tables are for two, close enough to talk to other table for two. Personally I didn't like the appetizers. Different, maybe you They did not fill the water glasses. Water tastes funky.don't expect veggies or potatoes, small portions . If you go to regular dining room, there is always a very long line. Noisy in there and seems choir if. Shortage of staff and they have too many tables to wait on.food choices better though.Be very cautious about internet. Total ripoff. Prices are high. They have classes on ipad and if you leave it on while they are teaching you are paying 60 minutes each class. It takes a half hour to send one picture. You have to remember to turn off or time keeps running. I ended up with an internet bill of $333.
Shows were excellent. Best we have seen on any ship. Don't miss them.last night was just a repeat.Troop shows were wonderful.Ken, the. Cruise director is funny and good. The best things for us were things we did on our own. We went to Somerset to Woody's...on the internet. Had 3 beers and two bermuda triangles for $16. Best wahoo fis sandwich for$10 and conch fritters also for $10.best day. Talked with the natives and walked around, saw turrets where they washed the prisoners. Was a great day.get bus for $ 2.50 in back of craft market. Takes10 minutes.other was on the internet.a snorkeling trip, we did before. Restless native. Pick up right at ship $60.serve hot chocolate chip cookies and rum swizzle a. Captain tells you history of island and houses. Another great day.Regarding aqua class, if I had to pay full price I would not do it. It is not worth it., but only my opinion.
Buffet is always crowded. The ri. Out of pizza in5 minutes.after they open at noon. Then you have to wait.not good planning. Food is now served in baskets. I liked that. Grill Hamburgs are good size and come with fries in the basket. No food at all in the afternoon.when you come back from a tour nothing is open and you are hungry. Never heard of that. They open for snacks at9:30. That was crazy.aqua spa was cereal, fruit and strange mini muffins in the morning. Not enough for me. And no skim milk. Go figure. Lunch was salad, and sometimes tuna plate. Loved the halos therapy pool, nice and warm. Strange chairs around it, your feet hang down, not comfortable.The ship is old, needs lots of repairs. Next time we would do solstice class. We are elite and do like the happy hour.There is a.craft fair in Gphamilton Wednight night. Nothing much, jewelry, picture, souvenirs, etc. but one really nice store, the English Shop. Nice To decide on aqua class I would never pay full price but maybe for you if you like quiet dinners, good service. Tables for two.you be your judge and jury.Have a good vacation and hope some of this info helped you. Less

Mentioned above. Hard choice. Not for full price would I do it. For $200.00 at the end when ypu can bargain, yes, Deck 9 has the overhang. No sun. Post is no big deal.
