Better than Expected: Celebrity Summit Cruise Review by Reedsdale
Overall Member Rating
Better than Expected
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan
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 More 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. Less
Cabin review: 7132
Great. Much better bathroom layout than expected. Comfy beds (including the upper berth and the open out arm chair). Nice balcony. Our only problem was the smell of sewage the last couple of days. It was pretty rank.
Port and Shore Excursions
We also really enjoyed our dinner at the Swizzle Inn near the airport. The Rum Swizzles were delicious and the food was alright, too!
