Ship Facts: Celebrity Summit Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Summit Deck Plans
Less than expected
Leaving out of Bayonne,N.J. is convenient for us as we live in N.J. We found no problems with embarking as it went smoothly. We so looked forward to this trip as we had not yet cruised to New England & Canada before. Our first stop was New Port, RI & we planned to visit the Breakers. Due to a very long wait to get on a tender, of which only 4 were running, we didn't have enough time to accomplish what we had set out to do. Guests were losing their tempers due to the long wait. (hours)

Portland was enjoyable. We were unfortunate to hit a Noreaster and were unable to tender into Bar Harbor which was very disappointing to most passengers, however it was no fault of the Cruise line. Our next stop was Halifax where we again encountered windy and rainy weather. Quebec was a wonderful experience & a lovely city which we enjoyed very much.

We were sorely disappointed in the ship itself. The food in the dinning room was good but at times repetitious. We tried the evening buffet only one night which we thought was unpalatable & never again ate there.

The shows left much to be desired and didn't compare to other ships we were on. We also found that many of the activities that we would have liked to attend were during the day when we were onshore. Poor planning.

We had a balcony cabin but were unable to open the sliding door. It took 4 days for someone to come and fix it. Our bathroom exhaust fan didn't work either all of which we reported to the desk. No hurry to fix anything & waited days to correct.

Aside from the convenience of not having to fly in order to take the cruise, we will not cruise this ship again. This was a 14 day cruise & were anxious to disembark. On a brighter note, a new Celebrity ship will be in service at this port which we are looking forward to.
