Ship Facts: Celebrity Summit Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Summit Deck Plans
Better than Expected
This was our second cruise. The first was on Royal Caribbean where our 2 children had a blast. Some of the reviews of the Summit made us wonder if we'd made the right choice, but the timing and itinerary were optimal for us. We flew to San Juan the morning of embarkation. We had no problems with the flight or transfers to the ship (we booked independently of the cruise line). Checking in was well organized and we were onboard eating at the poolside grill in no time. Our luggage arrived about 3 hours after we boarded. Nelson was our state room attendant and he was very efficient. We didn't see him much, but our room was always pin neat.

We traveled with our friends and their 2 children. Our daughter (age 8) spent a grand total of 23 minutes in the Fun Factory. As a result, we really have no opinion of it. Every night we received the next day's Fun Factory schedule, but our daughter was NOT interested. Oh well. Our son and our friends' 2 children checked out the Teen Club, but only participated in the dodgeball tournaments. They met a fun group of kids on the basketball court and ended up with their own informal teen club. They had a great time on the Sports Deck and made arrangements every night to meet after dinner. We hardly ever saw them.

We didn't find any activities that we liked. We pretty much sat in the sun, went to the Spa (so-so - my facial was relaxing but my manicure lasted 2 days), shopped a bit and had delicious drinks. We tried to do Karoake, but they couldn't seem to get the party started and we went to the casino instead.

We ate at the early seating. Diego, Dragan and Crisanto - we already miss you!! The two families ate together every night but 2. Honestly, I think we went out of our way to eat in the MDR because we had such good service and so many laughs with Diego (head waiter), Dragan (Asst. Waiter) and Crisanto (Bar Server). Our MDR servers on RC were pretty grumpy, so we loved our experience on Summit. Our only complaint about the food (MDR and Waterfall) was that it was always lukewarm. But, hey, it was served with a smile and I didn't have to cook it or clean it up.

Overall, we got what we wanted out of our cruise. Summit was a fine ship and and we didn't have any problems that made us think we made the wrong choice.
