My wife and 15 month old son and I just returned from a week long cruise aboard the Celebrity Summit. Cruise departed from Cape Liberty, NJ and sailed to King's Wharf, Bermuda. The embarkation procedure was efficient and quick, this was my third cruise and my wife's 10th cruise.
Overall impressions: Child care: The Toddler Room in the Fun Factory was perfect for my 15 month old. The room was approx. 15 x 15 and had plenty of age appropriate toys to use while there. They also allow you to borrow a "treasure chest" of toys to keep in your cabin for the week - our son loved this! The only downside of the childcare program was that the only public bathroom on the ship with a changing table is located on deck 11 by the Fun Factory. Also the majority of the high chairs we used had broken safety straps. Also keep in mind that most cabins do not have a bathtub, we anticipated this and had brought a blow up tub to use which doubled as a little pool for him.
Food: Food was More
good, not great. We had sailed on the celebrity Galaxy 3 years ago and the food was much better then. The portions served for dinner courses were on the small side, but the waiters will bring you additional portions if requested.
Entertainment: We enjoyed the nightly shows, although did not think doing a version of Titanic the musical was such a great idea.
Bermuda: Enjoyed the island tremendously. The public transportation system is easy to use, however, I would not recommend using the buses. The high speed ferries were great and usually on time, however, the public buses were terrible. Very crowded and not on time. Would recommend taking the ferry from the dockyard to Hamilton or St. George and then take a cab to wherever you want to go from there. We took a sunset glass bottom bottom boat excursion and loved it. We also did a 6 hour drive of the island which took us to all the highlights of the island. We also toured the historic fort at the Dockyard and spent time at Snorkel Park.
Ship: There appeared to be some type of ventilation issue aboard the ship, most of the public rooms were very hot and even our cabin's temperature seemed to run warm. The ship's officers and crew were highly visible and approachable. All were extremely nice. Less
