Just returned from a wonderful cruise on the Summit. It was our seventh cruise and our third with Celebrity.
Stateroom: We were in the Concierge Class Cabin 8087. Larger then what we have had in previous trips. Very clean and convertable. The balcony was a relaxing place to have our breakfast or just to get away from the crowd. The expanded room service menu for breakfast was exceptional. The daily fruit basket was small but just enough to satisfy our tastes.
Dining No complaints. Despite what other people have said in this forum, the food was above average in the dining room and there was a lot of variety. The menu was in two parts. On the right side they had selections that did not change for the duration of the cruise. On the left side they had new selections that changed daily. You could mix and match between the two. Sevice was great. Our ass't matre de Domitris heard that we enjoyed sushi and that our early dining conflicted somewhat with the sushi bar schedule. Domitris took it upon himself to have a great selection of sushi delivered to us every night at our dinner service.
Bar service We had pre paid for our drinks. Great deal and never any problem with the staff with any of our drink orders. They were always accommodating and friendly. Some of the best servers we have come across. Pool area Lots of chairs and four hot tubs. The pool was nothing special but the deck plan was well organized. The only complaint here was the number of unsupervised children in the hot tubs on a few occasions. They would be splashing about or trying to swim in the tubs. PARENTS...it is not cute....watch your brats.
Entertainment Above average. The comedian "Noodles" was hilarious. The feature singer Jacqi Michaels has a terrific voice but is a bit too dramatic and phony in her presentation. Song selection was good but you could tell she was acting with her sincerity and interaction with the audience. Many others commented on this also. The Acapelicans (Acapella) were very good. Katie Guglielmo was in Michaels Club and was an excellent piano entertainer. The regular cast did a tribute to Broadway and a pretty good presentation of Les Miserable. The dancers were exceptional and the acrobatic team was incredible.
All in all this was one of the best cruises we have gone on. Celebrity, like other cruise lines, have had to cut corners but they still offer a first class experience. Looking forward to Alaska in August
